LEGOs have been part of our popular culture for generations so FOX no doubt hoped that familiarity would help attract a big audience to the network’s LEGO Masters show. The first season was a mediocre performer in the ratings but the series was renewed anyway. Will the numbers improve this time around? Will LEGO Masters be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.
The LEGO Masters TV show pits teams of LEGO enthusiasts against other teams in challenges of imagination, design, and creativity. Will Arnett hosts while expert Brickmasters and LEGO employees Jamie Berard and Amy Corbett serve as judges. Armed with infinite possibilities and an unlimited supply of LEGO bricks, teams of two compete against each other in ambitious brick-building challenges. In each episode, Arnett and the expert judges encourage the builders, introduce various challenges, and put the builders’ creations to the test. The competing pairs who impress the judges the most progress to the next round while other teams are eliminated. In the finale, the top teams face off for a $100,000 cash prize, the ultimate LEGO trophy, and the grand title of LEGO Masters.
