Exclusive Sneak Peek: Hollywood Game Night Unwraps a New Challenge in Its Holiday Return

‘Twould appear that Santa has already left something under Hollywood Game Night‘s Christmas tree — a new party game to debut in the series’ special holiday outing. And TVLine has a first look at the famous film phrases-themed challenge.

A surprise summertime hit for NBC, Game Night returns Monday, Dec. 23 at 10/9c (following The Sing-Off‘s finale). In this first-look video, host Jane Lynch lays out the rules for the new element, titled “In Other Words,” with Suburgatory’s Cheryl Hines among the first to brave the game.

Other celebs on hand for the holiday outing are Ray Romano (Parenthood), Rachel Bilson (Hart of Dixie), recording artist Gavin DeGraw, onetime U.S. Open tennis champ Andy Roddick and his supermodel/sometimes actress wife Brooklyn Decker.

Hollywood Game Night officially kicks off Season 2 on Monday, Jan. 20, with the first two of four new hours.

    Hi Matt, I’m a bit confused. I knew about the renewal and about the Christmas Episode. My assumption was that they were going to film the Christmas Episode this year and they were only going to film the 10 episodes next year for broadcast in the summer like the previous season.
    Then I saw the article earlier this month about it returning in January and saw through Twitter and other means that they taped all the Season 2 episodes last month with guests as varied as Mayim Bialik , Erika Christensen and Baba Booey. So I gathered that the entire 2nd season was going to be on in Winter 2014. and now this article says that only 4 episodes will air beginning January 20th.

    Do you know what NBC’s plans are for the show beyond these 4 episodes. Will they film more episodes later on? Will it return in the summer? And is the Christmas episode a standalone holiday episode or is it considered the first episode of Season 2?
    Sorry about all the questions, it’s just that there is not a lot of info about scheduling.

    I’m so excited about more Game Night! Thank you NBC for renewing it! And doing a special one for Christmas! *dance of joy*

  3. Unquestionably believe that which you stated.

    Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about
    worries that they just don’t know about. You
    managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
