Early on in game shows, when stars took part, they aided players -- to guess secret words on "Password," for instance. Now they're helping them guess names of VIPs in host Craig Ferguson's four-round competition set in a party atmosphere. The celebrity/contestant pairs must identify the famous -- actors, athletes, politicians, cartoon characters, etc. -- based on improvised clues for a chance to win $20,000. The celebrity connection extends behind the cameras; actors Courteney Cox and David Arquette are among executive producers of a show based on board game "Identity Crisis."
Each week two people leave their ordinary lives behind as they and a group of popular celebrities gather together to play a series of outrageous and hilarious party games that include quizzes featuring celebrity and popular culture. The civilians compete with each other, but each person has a team of celebrities for assistance, vying for the opportunity to take home a $25,000 cash prize. Adding to the party atmosphere is the host -- award-winning actress, comic and singer Jane Lynch -- and an energetic house band.
"Big Star Little Star" tests celebrities and their offspring to see how much they know about their family members. Hosted by Cat Deeley, the game show pits three famous families against one another in each episode. The stars team up with their kids to answer questions that reveal behind-the-scenes moments from the celebrities' personal lives. While there might be some embarrassment in store for the celebs, it's all in good fun and for a good cause -- the families are playing to win money for their favorite charities.
Actor Alec Baldwin hosts -- and executive produces -- the newest iteration of the iconic panel game show in which four contestants try to match answers given by six celebrities to humorous, and often risque, fill-in-the-blank questions. The famous panelists range from quick-witted comics to stars of the stage and screen.
Improv veterans Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie return for a new take on the comedy series with host, Aisha Tyler. Each episode, a special guest star joins the comics as they tackle a series of spontaneous improvised sketches, with only a few random ideas from the studio audience and their host. With little information and a lot of imagination, the comics depict a variety of characters and scenes, and even perform songs. At the end of each round, Aisha awards points to each of the four performers and announces a winner at the end of every episode.
In this original version of iconic game show "Family Feud," actor Richard Dawson plays host to two teams, each comprised of five family members, who try to match the answers given to survey questions asked to groups of people (typically 100 people in the group). The family that wins the game by being the first to reach a certain point total, either 200 or 300 depending on the rules at the time, advances to the bonus round, called Fast Money, for a chance to win thousands of dollars by answering more survey questions.
