Celebrity Name Game keeps sending me stuff. Which is okay because I'm a game show blogger and game shows send me stuff all the time. CNG is a little different because they send me long lists of the celebs who will appear on the show. The long list for October...

Apparently CNG will start double-running eps from the new season on October 19. Right now the daily double-run ep is from last year, with the slightly different format.

The celeb list has lots of returnees from the first season, as the show sorts through which celebs can play the demanding game. But there are some new faces. I'm looking forward to Weird Al and Colin Mochrie. Too bad they're not on the same episode.


  1. Since Wayne Brady is on the photo, his Let's Make A Deal hit an all time high of 3.54 viewers. Price did well too, averaging 5.5 million.

  2. What were today's pricing games on The Price is Right?

  3. These aren't daily numbers. They're the averages for the entire 2104-15 season. And sorry to be persnickety, but the 3.54M number was for LMAD's second half-hour. The first half-hour averaged 3.06M. Still record numbers for Wayne and crew.

    1. I forgot about that part. Still, LMAD might have a long run on CBS. For Price, it's nice to see a show still going strong after 44 years on the air. I just found out that this is Carey's 9th season as host. I think he has now seasoned as a game show host. Although you have your hardcore classic traditionalists who wishes Bob was still there.

      Non related, but this past Wednesday on Millionaire, a guy tried out a $500,000 question and cashed out on $250,000. Hopefully we see a lot more of those moments this season. According to Harrison, he was never more excited to say "Let's Play Who Wants To Be A Millionaire." At least he ain't screaming that at you.

    2. Can't believe Carey-era Price is now 9 seasons old. This current LMaD run is already in its 7th.

      I'm getting old...

  4. Casey and I would probably recognize more names from a 1980s game show celeb list than a 2010s list :)
