Hollywood Game Night dropped off quite a bit in the ratings, during its fourth season. Maybe that’s why NBC renewed it for a short fifth season but delayed its premiere from mid-season to summer. Whether or not that will help remains to be seen. Will Hollywood Game Night be cancelled or renewed for season six? Stay tuned.
