NBC has picked up another season of a game show that has been part of its prime-time lineup. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the network renewed “Hollywood Game Night,” the celebrity game show hosted by Jane Lynch of “Glee.”
Lynch will return as host for the show’s third season, which was given 10 episodes, the story notes. The show comes from Universal Television and Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner’s Hazy Mills, with the show based on Hayes’ own game nights with his friends.
“The celebrity competition series has been a solid performer for NBC, averaging a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49 and 5 million total viewers during its in-season run when factoring in seven days of delayed viewing,” the story notes. “That’s up from its summer 2013 run, when it averaged a 1.4 in the demo and 4.1 million total viewers. The series rates high with upscale audiences, indexing at a 106 in homes with $100,000-plus incomes.”
