press release today about the second season.
The new episodes begin September 21, a week after the other syndie game shows. Somebody always has to be different. The release talks up the show's performance in the women 25-54 demo. Which just shows that people in the game show business are painfully aware of demos, despite commenter rants on this blog about "ageism" and "bigotry."
The release also lauds Craig Ferguson for his Daytime Emmy. The host is clearly a major plus for this show, with his unflagging energy and often sardonic humor. There were some rumors about gameplay changes for the second season, but nothing major looks to be happening. The game described in the release is pretty much the same as the first go-round. Just a few tweaks to include a wider variety of clues and categories.
The release also lists some of the celeb players for the new season. Weird Al Yankovic shows up! Maybe he can record a parody song about losing on Celebrity Name Game.
