Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Jameela Jamil with The Tenderloins -- Brian 'Q' Quinn, James 'Murr' Murray, Joe Gatto & Sal Vulcano -- as recurring panelists, THE MISERY INDEX is a comedy game show where contestants can make a fortune out of other people's MIS-fortune. This series, inspired by the card game "Sh*t Happens," features two teams, each consisting of one contestant and two Tenderloins. Teams compete against each other by attempting to determine the ranking of hilarious and miserable real-life events on a scale of 1-100 based on our Misery Index, a ranking system created by a team of therapists. For example, is getting a third degree burn worse than seeing your father naked? Is it worse than dropping your phone in the toilet?
