TV show description:
A sports-themed game show, the Game On! TV series is an adaptation of the British series A League of Their Own. James Corden hosted the UK series and serves as one of this show’s executive producers.
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.
Episode #8 — Celebrity Guests: Kevin Nealon & Terrell Owens
Actor and comedian Kevin Nealon joins Team Gronk and former professional football player Terrell Owens joins Team Venus as they compete against each other in a unique round of target practice, a speed race, and a slam-dunk challenge.
First aired: July 22, 2020.
