It’s official. Magda Szubanski will front TEN’s new pop-culture quiz show, The Spearman Experiment.
The show will screen on Tuesday nights in September, as a variation on 20 to 1‘s clip show.
“I’m a sucker for a bit of potentially life-altering trivia,” she told news.com.au.
“It’s going to be a slightly twisted trip down memory lane. Besides, Channel 10 are doing pretty well at the moment so I thought I’d park my bike there for a bit.”
Again, this is surely a replacement to Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation.
Szubanski has been hot fave for the show as far back as May.
According to Wikipedia, Charles Edward Spearman (1863 – 1945) was an English psychologist known for work in statistics, as a pioneer of factor analysis, and for Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient. He also did seminal work on models for human intelligence, including his theory that disparate cognitive test scores reflect a single general factor and coining the term ‘g factor.’
