Hosted by Jay Leno, this new incarnation of the legendary game show "You Bet Your Life," will preserve the show's trademark humorous interviews and unpredictable banter with each contestant, famously originated by Groucho Marx. For this reboot, the game will couple two strangers together for the opportunity to win prize money by correctly answering questions about pre-determined categories. Each episode will present two pairs of contestants.

25 Words or Less includes two teams comprised of celebrities and civilians against each other in a fast-paced word game with a top prize of $10,000. In the beginning rounds of the game, after a frenzied bidding session, one team member provides clues to two partners to help them guess a list of five words using fewer than 25 clue words. In the final round, the contestant who has earned the most points has 60 seconds to get his partners to guess 10 words using only 25 words or less.
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 on Celebrity Name Game. 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".
Jeopardy! is a classic game show -- with a twist. The answers are given first, and the contestants supply the questions. Three contestants, including the previous show's champion, compete in six categories and in three rounds (with each round's "answers" being worth more prize money). Contestant images from 2015 onwards are provided courtesy of Fikkle Fame.
With more than 30 million viewers per week, Wheel of Fortune has been the #1 syndicated game show since its inception. It has earned six Daytime Emmy Awards, including the 2011 Emmy for Outstanding Game/Audience Participation Show. The series continues to attract a larger audience than many Primetime TV shows.
Funny You Should Ask is an outrageous game show that believes every question always has a funny answer. In each half hour episode, six superstar comedians try to help two contestants win a big cash prize. The celebrity is asked an interesting trivia based question and responds with a killer joke. After the laughter subsides, the comedian answers again, this time trying to respond correctly. The contestant must then decide if he thinks the comedian's answer is right or wrong. After three laugh filled rounds, the contestant with the most money goes on to play the end game for a chance at the big cash prize. Every episode is jam-packed with more laughter than any of today's hottest sitcoms.
The Joker's Wild is an American television game show that aired at different times during the 1970s through the 1990s. Contestants answered questions based on categories that were determined randomly by a mechanism resembling a slot machine. The show's title refers to the game's slot-machine mechanism also having jokers. The show was billed as "the game where knowledge is king and lady luck is queen", and was notable for being the first successful game show produced by Jack Barry after his company's role in the quiz show scandals during the late 1950s. The success of the series led in part to the reformation of Barry & Enright Productions in the 1970's, which reunited Barry with his partner Dan Enright. The show aired on CBS from 1972 to 1975, and from 1977 to 1986 in broadcast syndication.
