Weakest Link—which returns Tuesday, April 2, 2024 at 9/8c on NBC; episodes stream the next day on Peacock—is the ultimate trivia show. Hosted by actress-comedian Jane Lynch, the show sees a group of people who work together answering trivia questions in order to win the highest amount of money possible. As Contestants' strengths start to reveal themselves, the group votes round by round who the Weakest Link amongst them is. That person is eliminated, and by the end, one person emerges victorious.

"I'm an actor, so I can pull that stuff out and then tuck it away until I go back to work, but it’s very easy," Lynch told an NBC affiliate about turning on the "mean" persona required to host the show. (In the original Weakest Link, Host Anne Robinson's cutting comments to the Contestants made the show a hit.) "I took a little Sue Sylvester [from Glee], a little smarmy Jane, and kind of crafted a way of being for this show for a way of hosting this show.”

On the pressure to fill Robinson's shoes, Lynch says, "That's something I try not to think about because I think that would freeze me in my steps. [I'd go], '...Should I do it like Anne?' 'Am I as good as Anne?' And this and that. I just throw those thoughts away and host the show."

She's been hosting the show spectacularly, of course. And Weakest Link has so much new cerebral action on the horizon. “I’m very much looking forward to [more episodes] of mocking Contestants and encouraging discord,” Lynch said in a statement.
