"Hollywood Game Night" Returns For Second Season

It has been a while since NBC has had a hit summer game show, with the last one being Minute To Win It a couple of years ago. It looks like Hollywood Game Night is on its way to being a staple for NBC's summer schedule as the primetime game show has been renewed for a second season. In case you are not familiar with the show, Hollywood Game Night lets ordinary people play games with some of the biggest names in Hollywood for a shot at $25,000. The show has averaged solid ratings between 3.5 and 4 million viewers in its current 10:00pm Thursday time slot and "retain[ed] 85% of the premiere ratings", according to Paul Telegdy, NBC President of Alternative and Late-Night Programming. With an excellent host like Jane Lynch and a solid, entertaining format, it does not come as a shock that this show has been renewed for a second season. Celebrities who have participated in the show this season include Nick Cannon, Amy Poehler, Martin Short and Al Roker. Personally, I can't wait for which stars will be playing next season.

Meanwhile, check out an episode of Hollywood Game Night in the clip below. This special episode features present and past cast members from Saturday Night Live. This was probably the most entertaining show of the first season. Check it out!
