Today's article is dedicated to keeping you updated with the latest in game show news, from history-making moments on Jeopardy to Syfy's new competitive series based on the classic game of Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots, I'm sure you will enjoy what's in store in the world of game shows. Also featured in this article is a list of the Top 5 Game Show Moments of January 2013. Enjoy!

IT’S OFFICIAL! Cedric The Entertainer will be the succeeding host of Millionaire for the next three seasons. Maybe a strategy of "keeping up with the Joneses" in light of Harvey's success on Feud?

The CW obstacle-course stunt game show Oh Sit! will return for a second season on April 15 at 8:00pm EST. You can download an iOS version of the Oh Sit! game for any Apple mobile device.

The Price Is Right will be airing a second Celebrity Week starting on February 18 with stars Nick & Drew Lachey, NeNe Leakes, Sharon Osbourne, Charles Barkley, and Demi Lovato to appear. 

Last week, history was made on Jeopardy’s Teen Tournament as a game ended with NO winner for the first time ever in the show’s tournament history. Check it out here.

The BAFTA Award-winning game show The Cube is searching for new contestants for the new series to come later this year. If you are interested, you can contact the casting department via email.

Syfy’s new competitive series, Robot Combat League, is set to premiere February 26 at 10:00pm EST. This show has twelve robots competing for $100,000.
