Games shows can be hit or miss in primetime television. Some do really well in the ratings while most are a disappointment. How will the new Game On! series perform for CBS? Will the show be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A sports-themed game show, the Game On! TV series is an adaptation of the British series A League of Their Own. Hosted by Keegan-Michael Key, this series pits world champions, celebrities, and comedians against one another to see who can conquer unexpected and sometimes outrageous challenges. Two teams of three people are captained by tennis champion Venus Williams and Super Bowl champion Rob Gronkowski. Comedians Bobby Lee and Ian Karmel and a rotating roster of celebrities round out the trios. They compete in over-the-top physical challenges, absurd trivia, and extreme field competitions. At the conclusion of each episode, Team Gronk or Team Venus is crowned the winner. Meanwhile, the losing team must “take the L” in an embarrassing punishment.
