NBC Renews “Hollywood Game Night” for Second Season
What a great summer the unscripted television genre is having. It’s time to add another show to the list of successes. NBC has officially renewed Hollywood Game Night for a second season. The series, which airs new episodes every Thursday at 10:00PM ET and reruns Tuesdays at 8:00PM ET, sees two contestants playing a slew of party games with A-list celebrities for a shot at $25,000. The incredibly funny Jane Lynch hosts. The series has done well for the network, retaining 85% of its premiere audience and has been a strong summer performer.
“Not only is it a show we’re very proud of, it is easy watching and fun, and the repeats have been holding up quite well, retaining 85% of the premiere ratings, a quality we’re looking for”, NBC president of alternative and late-night programming Paul Telegdy told Deadline. Jane Lynch will return as host.
We’re glad to see the show do so well and come back. It’s rare we get a show as genuinely funny and enjoyable as this. It’s an unpretentious, fast, and humorous hour filled with fun and games. These don’t come often so it’s great to see audiences enjoying it. We can’t wait to see what they do with season two.
