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.
