The New Big Ball With Neil Hamburger is a 2010 pilot from the minds of absurdist duo Tim and Eric, and was a mock game show hosted by Neil Hamburger (whom Tim and Eric had previously worked with on Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!). Created for Adult Swim, the pilot was ultimately rejected and went unseen for several years.

According to an article in the New York Times, the 13-minute pilot had begun early production in 2008.[1] It was cited as being a spin-off of Awesome Show. Given the presence of Tim and Eric's dedicated fan following, after being asked several times about the pilot, Tim Heidecker posted a tweet on September 12, 2013, which read "You asked for it! The New Big Ball Game Show pilot with @NeilHamburger is coming to the web soon!!!".[2] Sure enough, a couple of months later, on November 7, the full pilot was uploaded to adultswim.com, and the mysterious episode was finally made available to fans alike.
