the CBS premiere of Candy Crush on July 9.
Now NBC has announced the return dates for two game shows. The Wall, which got the best ratings of any of the winter broadcast game shows, comes back on June 22 for its second season. NBC brags about the show's nice Nielsen news, which is understandable. The Plinko ripoff is more entertaining than it should be. Stealing a good idea can pay off nicely.
Hollywood Game Night, which I figured was pretty much done on NBC, returns on August 7 for a fifth go-round. There's not much good Nielsen news to brag about here, but the network has to burn off the unaired eps sooner or later. NBC has already sold the reruns to GSN, as our little game show network recently announced.
