TBS has been working on their new game show for quite some time now. Based on the card game Sh*t Happens, The Misery Index was co-created by Andy Breckman (Monk) and features the stars of Impractical Jokers squaring off against contestants as they rank dreadful life events on a scale of 1-100. Other highlights today include this season's penultimate set of Battle Rounds on The Voice, Jenny Slate's comedy special debut, and Halloween fun with Martha and Snoop Dogg.
