Words with Friends (AKA the best thing to have happened to the world since the release of the iPhone) is being turned into an IRL game show. If we’re being honest, we don’t 100% understand how it’s going to work, but we’re pretty excited anyway.

Considering it’s one of Apple’s most popular free games EVER and it’s been downloaded over 200 million times, it should be safe to assume you all know what I’m talking about. But, just in case you hate the English language (what are you doing here?), the Words with Friends game is a digital version of Scrabble that allows you to play against your friends and creates all sorts of crazy competitiveness, which we completely support.

The game is turning eight this year so its creator, Zynga, has teamed up with MGM Television to bring it to primetime. Weird? Yes. But sort of great? Definitely. 

If you're looking for actual TV shows, here's everything you should be bingeing on right now.
