I've watched all seven or eight episodes so far during the first season. This show is downright awful. They've basically taken the "do what someone else whispers in your ear" premise from Impractical Jokers (IJ) and watered it down into an incredibly bland and uninspired show. Where IJ is hilarious and often times makes you cringe, the jokes on Repeat After Me are incredibly tame and rarely make you laugh. The hostess, Wendi McLendon-Covey, is the worst hostess of any TV show in recent memory. Not only is she not funny, she is hideously annoying and arrogant. The end of each segment, where the person that is being pranked is told they are on the show, always results in that person acting more confused/embarrassed than anything. I would be surprised and highly disappointed if this show gets renewed for a second season. Save yourself some time and watch Impractical Jokers instead, which is consistently funny and way more original than this celebrity-produced garbage.
