ABC is bringing back some new versions of old game shows for the summer, reviving Press Your Luck, Card Sharks, and Match Game for its Wednesday nights. The new host of Card Sharks is Joel McHale, who began his career with an improv comedy troupe and has had plenty of live TV experience with E!’s The Soup. Those qualifications seem perfect for a game show host, so of course ABC came calling when these game show revivals came up. McHale told us what happened after that.

Card Sharks airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on ABC.
