About the series
Hollywood Game Night is an American game show television series airing on NBC since July 11, 2013. It is produced by Hazy Mills Productions, Mission Control Media and Universal Television and hosted by Jane Lynch. The current fourth season premiered on January 5, 2016.
The series is set around two participants who team up with celebrities, forming two teams of three, on a casual game night, contending for a cash prize of $25.000. In each episode they play five of the wide variety of available casual games, and try to score as many points for their teams as they can. Among the program guests for the current season are Telenovela`s Eva Longoria, Geena Davis, Mira Sorvino, Helen Hunt, Kate Walsh, Marlon Wayans and many others.
Awards, ratings and renewal prospects
The series has won several prestigious awards, such as 2014 and 2015 Emmys for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program for the fantastic Jane Lynch, and the Writers` Guild of America prize for Quiz and Audience Participation. Hollywood Game Night is a very popular show, perhaps due to the fact that it allows the celebrity guests to be seen in a casual setting. The audience enjoys the opportunity to get an almost voyeuristic glimpse inside a celebrity living room. Some viewers note the fact that celebrity guests interact naturally with each other, while others accuse them of overacting. Nonetheless, the series holds a 7.7 rating on IMDb, proving yet again that celebrity-related shows will always have an audience. There is an almost sure renewal in the cards for Hollywood Game Night.
