a half-dozen hour-long game show eps from Ellen Degeneres.
She will host the prime time show titled Ellen's Game of Games, which will raid her daytime game segments for formats and ideas. (See the screenshot for one of the clever notions.) "We're pulling out all the stops — gigantic sets, hilarious games," Ellen says. The viewers will decide the hilarity level, though there's little doubt that Ellen likes to play those silly little games.
ABC tried Big Fan, based on a game segment from Jimmy Kimmel. The show was passable in quality, though Nielsen was unimpressed. With Ellen herself as the host, I have to think her show will generate better numbers.
NBC gives no debut date. This looks like a summer show, but you never know in the wonderful world of broadcast.
