New on TV: Oh, Sit!

Someone is really pushing the envelope with extreme musical chairs on the new game show “Oh, Sit!”! Contestants compete in head-to-head obstacle courses to claim a chair at the end. The one left sitting in the end wins the cash prize. And to liven things up, there’s a live band that plays during the competition. Hosted by Jamie Kennedy.

“Oh, Sit!” premieres Wednesday, August 15 @ 8/7c on the CW.

At the end of season three, Hank (Mark Feuerstein) quit the family business after he and Evan (Paulo Costanzo) disagreed over a possible expansion. Enter Ben Shenkman as HankMed’s newest hire on Royal Pains. Shenkman, who  is set to appear in four episodes, will play HankMed’s new employee, Dr. Jeremiah Sacani. Although he has a top-notch resume and a brilliant mind for science, Jeremiah has a serious lack of the social skills required for concierge medicine. Does this mean Evan might come crawling back to Hank?

It’s also unclear what Dr. Sacani’s hire means for Hamptons Heritage M.D. Paul Van Dyke (Kyle Howard), who Evan approached first after Hank’s departure.

What do you think of HankMed’s newest hire? Do you think the brothers Lawson will be able to reunite?

Royal Pains will return for Season 4 this summer on USA.
