Writer’s Block is a TV competition show where writers can win a cash prize and become a judge for the following season. The contestants take part in weekly challenges to progress through the competition, which are judged by the hosts, and votes tallied from the viewing audience eliminate contestants. 

Each episode the writers compete in a one-liner and main challenge. At the end the one-liner challenge, the contestants have a round-table-type discussion where they each vote, Like or Dislike, for each one-liner. The two contestants with the most dislikes are paired together for the viewer’s vote and whomever has the lowest vote count between them will not be able to use certain words in the next episode.

Writers randomly choose a challenger for a match and then given 20 minutes to write. At the end of the challenge, the hosts and contestants discuss each match. Eliminations are announced at the beginning of the following week’s episode.

The season starts with eight writers trying to survive elimination episodes to win. 


$1,000 and the winner returns for the next season as a judge. As a judge winner receives $150/episode for the ten episode season. Total prize is $2,500.
