Debuting in 1995, Super Trio remains as one of Hong Kong’s longest-running variety game show in history. The entertainment variety program engages their celebrity guests to perform comedic skits together, such as improvisations, quizzes, and stunts. Viewership ratings for each weekly episode are consistently high, with averages of over 30 points.
To celebrate the show’s long-running success, a Super Trio Best Awards Ceremony is planned to be held before the premiere of the new series. Airing as the series’ first episode, the awards will include short episodic reels of classic moments from the first nine installments. Award categories include the Most Frequent Guest Star Award, the Best Spicy Food Eater Award, the Most Loyal Award, the Best Enemies Award, and others.
The tenth series will also debut a new game format, which will separate into three different categories – one for children, one for adults, and one for seniors. The goal of the new format is to target a wider selection of audiences, and to give out prizes that will correspond to the different audiences.
In addition to new games, the news series will also incorporate classic, well-received games from previous installments. Such games include the Super Ping Pong Game – a game in which players are to answer questions while they play tennis table – and the Super Marathon Game – a rhyming challenge.
Several episodes in the show will also be shot at overseas locations, including Japan and Southeast Asian countries.
