Yesterday, the network announced the dates of a few of its upcoming shows set to air in 2018, including The Wall and Ellen’s Game of Games. The Wall premieres January 1 at 8:00pm ET and Ellen’s Game of Games makes its series debut January 2 and 8:00pm ET, with a sneak peek episode airing December 18 at 10:00pm ET.
Heading into its second season, The Wall returns with host Chris Hardwick and more deserving couples and pairs ready to win up to $12 million in cash if they get past the enriching and ever-unpredictable Wall. The Wall recently aired a special episode on Thanksgiving Eve and had a decent viewer retention rate considering the show was on a three-month hiatus. Check out the latest episode on NBC.com.
Unlike HLN seemingly permanently putting Heads Up! on the backburner, It looks like one of Ellen Degeneres’s projects will finally get some elongated air time with the series premiere of Ellen’s Game of Games. The hourlong game show has DeGeneres selecting contestants from the studio audience and inviting them to supersized, primetime versions of some of the same amusing and entertaining games played on her daytime talk show for a chance to win up to $100,000. Some of these games could include You Bet Your Wife, Fire Down Below!, One-Eyed Monster! and Make It Rain. Take a look at a preview of her new show in the clip below and stay tuned!
