Review of "Holey Moley" 6/21/19 by Eva Diaz
airs Mondays, 8/7c on ABC

Holey Moley is a show for people who love miniature golf. Contestants compete to conquer the mini golf obstacle course (which is much larger than a regular miniature golf course) and win the coveted left handed "Golden Putter" trophy, a plaid jacket from the show, and a $25,000 grand prize. I admit, I'm not a fan of mini golf, but since I love game shows, I thought I would check it out. I like it because it take itself seriously at all. The show has comedian Rob Riggle doing color commentary, sportscaster Joe Tessitore doing play by play, and talk show host Jeannie Mai doing sideline reporting. The fun part is watching these three do commentary, and secondarily, watching the contestants playing the course. NBA star Steph Curry is not only one of the producers of the, but he's the golf pro who plays against the contestants as they move on in different rounds of play. In one episode, Kenny G appears to play his saxaphone, to distract the contestants from making their shots.

I have to say that, overall, I enjoyed the show. However, I probably wouldn't watch it every week because I'm not a fan of mini golf. If I came across it and didn't have anything else to watch, I would watch it. I think mini golf fans will enjoy this because you could even learn some tips that you could use the next time you play. Stephen Curry plays very well and designed the huge course himself, so he likes to educate the players. I give this show a 5 out of 5 because I think people will enjoy watching it.


Holey Moley: Season 01  (Thursdays, 8:00 p.m. ET)
Series Premieres Thursday, June 20, 2019

“Holey Moley,” a 10-episode mini-golf competition series, will showcase self-proclaimed mini-golf lovers from around the country as they compete head-to-head through an epic obstacle golf course. In each episode, 12 contestants will put their miniature golf – and physical – skills to the test and face off in never-before-seen challenges on a supersized miniature golf course. NBA superstar Stephen Curry will serve as executive producer, resident golf pro of the “Holey Moley” course and appear in every episode. Rounding out the on-camera talent is color commentator Rob Riggle, play-by-play commentator Joe Tessitore and sideline correspondent Jeannie Mai.
Stephen Curry is a three-time NBA Champion, two-time NBA MVP and six-time NBA All-Star. He has revolutionized the way basketball is played and has established himself as one of the most respected and beloved players to have ever played the game. Curry co-founded Unanimous Media in 2018, which develops and produces inspiring television, film and digital content with an emphasis on family, faith and sports themes.

Actor/comedian/writer/producer/director Rob Riggle has been a staple in comedic films and television for more than 15 years, and is best known for his memorable characters in comedy hits like “The Hangover” and “Step Brothers,” as well as his stints on “Saturday Night Live,” and as a correspondent on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.” Most recently Riggle appeared in Universal’s “Night School” with Kevin Hart, Warner Brothers’ war drama “12 Strong” and Open Road Films’ “Midnight Sun.” On the small screen, he currently created and stars in Sony Crackle’s “Rob Riggle’s Ski Master Academy.”

Joe Tessitore is best known for his prime-time NFL duties as the play-by-play commentator for ESPN’s “Monday Night Football.” Tessitore has long been considered among the top live event broadcasters in sports, having spent many years leading ESPN and ABC’s coverage of championship boxing and college football. Widely praised for his versatility, his distinctive voice and joyful enthusiasm, Tessitore brings an unmistakable passion to his calls.

Jeannie Mai is a style advocate, television personality, and Emmy® award-winning co-host of “The Real,” a critically acclaimed live talk show on Fox Television Stations and in national syndication. Additionally, Jeannie is an executive producer of “Stopping Traffic: The Movement to End Sex Trafficking,” a documentary that investigates the international crisis of human sex trafficking. Jeannie has been a recurring fashion correspondent for E!’s “Live From The Red Carpet” and recently launched her new web series “Hello Hunnay,” taking fans on her journey through fashion, fitness, finances and relationships.
