a couple of game shows make the list.
Much to my surprise Hollywood Game Night will return in a fifth go-round as a midseason replacement. At least the press release says the show will be back sooner or later. Jane Lynch and company produced some stinky ratings and I thought the show was a goner. Luckily for NBC, I don't run the network.
NBC's other traditional game show is The Wall, the much ballyhooed LeBron James project. Chris Hardwick will host, and the format involves a forty-foot wall and "quick thinking, shrewd strategy and a little luck with giant swings of fortune and millions of dollars changing on every ball." Sounds like the negotiations for an NBA superstar's contract. Maybe that's where LeBron got the idea (just kidding, I think).
The Wall will also fill in as a midseason replacement. We'll see if it lasts as long as Hollywood Game Night (surprisingly) has lasted.
