Game Night Exclusive: Angela Kinsey, Taraji P. Henson Can't Always Get What They Want

It’s hard out here for a Hollywood Game Night contestant whose grasp of pitch is as slippery as a Wesson-coated watermelon.

In the following exclusive clip from tonight’s episode (9/8c on NBC), a game of “How Do You Doo” — which is essentially “Name That Tune” with “doo-dooing” players in place of a piano — panelists Angela Kinsey (The Office), Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Franklin & Bash) and Taraji P. Henson (Person of Interest) struggle mightily to interpret a tone-deaf player’s Rolling Stones rendition, while host Jane Lynch struggles to keep her composure.

But while the player may not be a future Adam Lambert or Chris Daughtry, he displays an almost psychic connection that helps him figure out one of Gosselaar’s selections based on just a couple of desperately tossed off notes.

Press play below for the full clip — that’s Breckin Meyer, Fred Willard and Allison Sweeney on the opposing couch — and tell us if you’d have gotten Kinsey’s final, shimmying clue.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Just a question as there is only 1 more episode to go after this which completes the 10 episodes that were filmed late last year., Are more episodes going to be filmed pretty soon? Is the show returning this summer? I believe they still have casting information for contestants during the summer on the official NBC website?

    Are more episodes on the way? If so, when will they air?

    I can’t stand this section anyway. Almost nobody has any idea they’re off pitch, but also they get the tempo all wrong. Lots of songs are easily recognizable even if you just do the rhythm right.

  4. “It’s hard out here for a Hollywood Game Night contestant….” —Hmm? “…whose grasp of pitch is as slippery as a Wesson-coated watermelon.”—And double Hmmmm at the watermelon comment.
