NBC has had a change of plans. The network had initially planned to launch Ultimate Slip ‘N Slide following the Closing Ceremony of the Summer Olympics, on Sunday, August 8th. Unfortunately, that show has seen production delays so the peacock network has pushed back Slip ‘N Slide’s premiere and has now opted to launch Family Game Fight! a couple of days early.
Here’s more information about the schedule change from NBC:
MEDIA ALERT: ‘FAMILY GAME FIGHT!’
· NBC’s highly anticipated new competition series “Family Game Fight!,” hosted by Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, is set to debut with a special series premiere on Sunday, Aug. 8 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, immediately following the Closing Ceremony of the Summer Olympics.
· The series makes its time-period premiere with an all-new episode on Wednesday, Aug. 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
