Awesome Game Shows
(PG-13: Language) Funny or Die assembled a panel of celebrities to participate in a tic-tac-toe style gameshow with none other than Triumph the Insult Comic Dog as host, and sound effects artist Michael Winslow on announcer duties. Naturally, the politically-incorrect jokes and insults fly fast and furious.
Spicy food interview show Hot Ones is spinning off with a game show. Host Sean Evans will ask contestants to answer trivia questions as they eat progressively hotter and hotter wings. Each episode, one smart and iron-stomached winner will take home $25,000. Premieres on truTV on 2/18/20.
Fans of daytime game shows will immediately recognize the background of Dragon Vision’s playful wall clock. Inspired by Wheel of Fortune, the 8″ acrylic and printed vinyl clock features prize denominations instead of hours on its dial. Just be sure to avoid 12:30 and 5:30.
Jeopardy! has long been the smartest game show on TV, and unlike shows that give players some latitude with their answers, you have to be pretty spot on to be right on this one. Super Deluxe compiled this fun reel of longtime host Alex Trebek calling contestants out.
