NickSplat To Host 'Double Dare' Week Between Monday 18th - Sunday 24th June 2018

On your mark, get set, GO! To celebrate Nickelodeon reviving the networks iconic game show Double Dare for a new generation of viewers, NickSplat will be hosting a special Double Dare week, in which NickSplat will air classic episodes of the networks iconic game show every night at 11:00pm (ET/PT) between Monday 18th - Sunday 24th June 2018!

For Double Dare Week, NickSplat will be airing seven classic Double Dare episodes from across the Double Dare franchise: two episodes from the original series, two episodes of Family Double Dare, and three episodes of Double Dare 2000, hosted by Jason Harris!

It all leads up to the premiere of Nickelodeon's brand-new version of Double Dare on Monday 25th June 2018 at 8:00 PM (ET/PT) on Nick USA! Hosted by digital creator and actress Liza Koshy, the new edition of Double Dare will see a new generation of fans compete in the messiest and most physically challenging competition of their lives. Bringing together new fans and the iconic game show’s millennial audience from the ‘90s, original series host Marc Summers returns to give color commentary on the challenges, lending his vast knowledge of the game and expertise to each episode.

Double Dare features two teams competing to win prizes by answering brain-bending trivia questions, completing messy physical stunts and ultimately facing the legendary obstacle course--the human hamster wheel, the classic gigantic mouth, the wringer, the iconic Double Dare nose and more.

Nickelodeon’s new Double Dare will also spill off of the screen and into the real world this summer, connecting to fans both old and new in a series of forthcoming location-based live experiences. There will be opportunities for fans to play Double Dare in on-the-ground versions at VidCon 2018 in Anaheim, Calif., and all summer long at Nickelodeon Universe at Mall of America in Minneapolis.
