NBC Announces Debut Dates for “Hollywood Game Night” and “The Winner Is”

I just realized we forgot to post about NBC’s summer game show schedule.  Our apologies.  As we’ve known for some months, NBC has two games ready to debut this summer: Hollywood Game Night and The Winner Is.  Last week the network announced the debut dates.  Game fans will get a two-hour block each Thursday starting at 9:00PM ET on July 11th.  At 9:00PM ET is The Winner Is.  The Nick Lachey-hosted singing game pits two people against each other to see who can sing the best.  A panel of audience members decide who wins each round.  However, contestants may bail out of the game with bribes if they think they didn’t win.  The eventual winner can take home $1,000,000 if they hold their nerve and beat out the rest of the competition.

Then, at 10:00PM ET, is Hollywood Game Night.  Hosted by Jane Lynch, the show lets two contestants rub shoulders with A-list celebrities while playing various games for the chance at winning up to $25,000.  The celebrities taking part have been announced here.

Which one are you looking forward to?

  • Easy question, by far, Hollywood Game Night, enough with the Singing shows, about the only one I can handle is America’s Got Talent, and that is mainly the fact it is not just signing.

    I think the variety of games and the addition of Celebrities to the players should make a fun, entertaining show… But I said, should, hopefully the actual show delivers…

  • James Greek says:

    I signed up to be on Hollywood Game Night but bombed the over-the-phone test.

  • Adam says:

    Hollywood Game night should be more fun than The Winner Is, but why are they putting Game night at 10?

  • Dave C says:

    Re: the time for HGN, wonder if they are going to let the contestants get a bit raunchier than they would at 8pm?

  • Melissaoh says:

    The Winner Is has a preview following The Voice on June 10. Check it out! Anyone who is weary of another singing show will definitely change their minds! I know I can’t wait!
