FOX has filed a trademark application for "OK BOOMER."— Josh Gerben (@JoshGerben) November 18, 2019
The media giant filed the application on November 11th.
According to the filing, FOX intends to launch a reality, comedy and/or game show called OK BOOMER.

The application says that they are intending to create a television show based off of the phrase. From what Josh describes in the video, it seems like it could be about anything with the application saying the show could be a reality, competition, comedy, or game show.
This "genius" idea most certainly came from the brain of a boomer somewhere high up on the Fox executive team. Here are some things the good people of Twitter had to say about this:

In all likelihood any application for OK BOOMER will be denied by the USPTO for being a "widely used message."— Josh Gerben (@JoshGerben) November 19, 2019
