Storyline

Early on in game shows, when stars took part, they aided players -- to guess secret words on "Password," for instance. Now they're helping them guess names of VIPs in host Craig Ferguson's four-round competition set in a party atmosphere. The celebrity/contestant pairs must identify the famous -- actors, athletes, politicians, cartoon characters, etc. -- based on improvised clues for a chance to win $20,000. The celebrity connection extends behind the cameras; actors Courteney Cox and David Arquette are among executive producers of a show based on board game "Identity Crisis." Written by Jwelch5742

So sorry to see it going away
5 January 2017 | by ricomyelomaSee all my reviews

I'm a game show fan since way back when and since there are so few left, I'm saddened that yet another one bites the dust.

True they won't win any Nobel Prizes for this show but it's not about that.

It's cheesy, sometimes-raunchy (usually a couple of bleeps in every episode) game show fun that is one of my guilty pleasures which fill up my DVR.

Bon voyage Craig.

Perhaps you and Mr. Arquette can whip up another game show gem for us to enjoy.

Thanks for the TV fun.
