Hollywood Game Night Renewed for Third Season

Hollywood Game Night Renewed for Third Season

NBC has renewed the party game show hosted by Emmy Award-winner Jane Lynch


The celebrities, party games, and booze are coming back. NBC has officially renewed its popular game show Hollywood Game Night for a third season. Ten episodes have been ordered for the next run.

Lynch said, “I am so excited to get back to the gaming and to more crazy antics from America’s favorite celebrated persons!” Each episode sees two contestants play fast-paced and funny games with celebrities for a shot to win up to $25,000.

Hollywood Game Night averaged a 1.5 18-49 demographic rating and five million viewers overall during the 2013-2014 television season. What really helps keep the show afloat is a 106 index on adults 18-49 with $100K+ income homes. Rich people watching will keep a modestly rated show afloat. Look at Seinfeld‘s early life.

Congratulations to everyone at the show. It’s a blast and can’t wait to see more.

    I have an idea. How about Hollywood Game Night has a million dollar tournament of champions?

    It’s not a coincidence that this renewal came after two NBC sitcoms premiered to lower 18-49 numbers than HGN averaged last season.

  • Kevin Solomon

    I might be wrong, but I think that would be the wrong thing to do. It would almost ruin the fun mood on the show. It’s sort of like early “Millionaire” straying away from normal contestants and plugging in celeb episodes. IMO, at least.

    … and The Weakest Link, AND Beat the Clock, AND Whew!, AND…

    “Bullseye,” AND “Hot Potato,” AND “Password All-Stars”….etc.

    Yeah…. IMO “Celebrity” games involving winning money for “regular folks” for anything more than $25,000 or so, you get into a realm of the celebrities being put in this position of if they “F” up, then, it isn’t good publicity. Honestly think that was one of the issues with the “high stakes” Password from a few years ago… does a celebrity really want to be on the hook for a player getting either $250k or dropping down to $25k, and do we feel good about watching them in that position, and blowing it for some “everyperson”.

    At least with Password, they were able to drop the All-Stars part and return to regular players.

    Yep… but too late. :/
