Get ready for some Pictionary to fill your daytime viewing time. A new iteration of the game show will air on some local Fox stations next month with the possibility of a bigger run if the series does well. Jerry O’Connell will handle hosting duties. This is not the first time the actor has hosted during daytime hours as he had a talk show, Jerry O, in 2019.
Per Deadline, O’Connell said the following about hosting the new series:
“Ever since my failed drawing of a koala bear, lost my mom and me our household Pictionary crown, I’ve wanted to prove myself on the Pictionary stage. I’m so happy to be working with this team from Fox and CBS. Sharpen your pencils, it’s going to be a fun summer.”
Frank Cicha, EVP Programming at Fox Television Stations, also spoke about bringing the game show to FOX daytime:
“We’re sure a lot of families got much better at Pictionary over the last 15 months, so we think the timing is perfect for a fun, innovative TV version, and to have Jerry O’Connell as host is a real bonus. We’ve loved working with him in the past, and are fortunate he chose to do this with us.”
What do you think? Are you planning to check out Pictionary on local Fox stations next month?
The game pictionary and host was great he was a lot of fun to watch and to laugh on their drawings of stick people and still get the right answer. The host always seem happy and energetic
I love the show Pictionary and the host energy.. it was a fun show to watch
Love Pictionary. Don’t like Jerry O. You need to get some celebs who can draw, pitiful. Need to show the drawing closer to the people watching, don’t need to see contestant’s backs.
Yes! I love it. Makes me want to play my pictionary game. Drives me crazy watching when they try to draw lol
Yes I DVR because it comes on at 1230am
Yes! Where’s link to answer classic song question for the viewers?
Pictionary with O’Connels energy is my fav game show. Should be on prime time. Everyone has fun doing it – the celebs, contestants, Jerry and the audience. This is the BEST one!
Yes put 25 words or less back on!
Game is ok but don’t like Jerry O’Connell at all
Totally agree Leslie
Don’t like the host or the show. Too over the top. Loved 25 Words.
He was good. Don’t hate on the man, everyone needs something to do besides stay at HOME
I would rather watch re runs of 25 Words or Less Pictionary isn’t any good.
Terrible host. Get rid of him!!!!
I do not like new show at all.Boring because most people cannot draw well .I loved 25 Words Or LESS. I WILL NOT be watching Pictionary
I stopped watching 25 words or less for the same reason. I got bored with it. I will watch this to see how it goes.
Make sure to post when you know the airdates on FOX so I can keep an eye out for it.
Yes, I DEFINITELY will watch! I was a fan of Win, Lose or Draw with hosts Bert Convy, Vicki Lawrence, and Robb Weller. When that show ended, here comes Pictionary with hosts Brian Robbins and then an updated version with host Alan Thicke. I even watched Teen Win, Lose or Draw with host Marc Price. I was not a fan of the Disney 2014 version with host Justin Willman. I will even apply if this version with Jerry O’Connell is a hit! 🙂
