"Riot" (TV show), formerly known as "Slide Show," on FOX is the U.S. version of the hit international unscripted comedy series. The series is hosted by Australian comedian and talk show host Rove McManus.

From executive producer Steve Carell, the series pits two teams — featuring the nation's funniest celebrities and comedians — against each other in a series of showdowns designed to hilariously test mind and body. Throughout the game, the competitors must think on their feet as the teams face unpredictable song, dance and sketch challenges, often while navigating the show's trademark one-of-a-kind set, tilted at a 22.5 degree angle.

Originally created by Arthur Essebag, "Riot" is based on a format from French-based production company Satisfaction, The Television Agency. Also known as "Anything Goes" internationally, the series debuted on TF1 in France in January 2012 and averaged nearly a 40% audience share. The series debuted in Australia on Seven Network and has been the top-rated show in its time slot each week. After enjoying similar success in both Portugal and Denmark, the format is set to launch in Spain, the Netherlands, China and many other territories.

FOX's "Riot" is produced by Shine America in association with Carell's Carousel Television. Carell, Thom Hinkle, Eden Gaha and Paul Franklin serve as executive producers. The series is distributed globally by Shine International.
