"Brilliant next to it": "Brilliant next to it" new edition starts in May

Friends of weird evening entertainment will be happy: after a break of more than a year, the legendary comedy quiz show "Genial daneben" is starting again. After moderator Hugo Egon Balder (73) annoyedly threw in the towel at the original broadcaster Sat.1 in 2021, the format is now returning to the screen on RTLzwei in its old freshness.

From May 4th, the show will form the heart of the completely redesigned Thursday evening on RTLzwei from 8:15 p.m. Flanked by "Wheel of Fortune" and the new game show "Celebrity Game Night - We're playing for your dream", the broadcaster promises its viewers a whole night full of "good shows and a good mood".

For the new edition of the TV format that started in 2003, RTLzwei is once again relying on the proven team with Hugo Egon Balder as presenter and the comedians Hella von Sinnen (64) and Wigald Boning (56) as sidekicks. The quiz panel is to be completed in the coming episodes with well-known faces such as Michael Mittermeier, Oliver Pocher, Helene Bockhorst, Max Giermann, Dieter Nuhr and Janine Kunze.

In "Ingenious next to it" the comedians have to answer bizarre questions submitted by viewers in the most entertaining and correct way possible. If they don't succeed, 500 euros go to the sender of the respective question.

From 9:15 p.m. the new format "Celebrity Game Night - We play for your dream" will follow. In the German adaptation of the American game show "Hollywood Game Night", two teams, each consisting of two celebrities and one non-celebrity candidate, compete against each other in games. Each team fights to collect as many points as possible in order to fulfill a wish of the non-prominent member.

The program is moderated by the TV actress Caroline Frier (40), known among other things from the daily soap "Everything that counts".
