NBC's 'Hollywood Game Night' makes you feel like a genius
Why go out and make friends when you can watch Hollywood Game Night? I checked in on host Jane Lynch and her stable of celebs — this week: Anthony Anderson, Rose Byrne and Stacy Keibler (pictured), Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Patricia Heaton, and Tom Arnold — and must admit I had an altogether good time. The people in my TV kept me company! It was not that sad!
The show’s as simple as it sounds: Two teams (three celebs plus one commoner) play various word-association games about Hollywood happenings. If you tend to feel like a brainless turd during Trivial Pursuit Entertainment, you will LOVE this show. I’ve never felt smarter in my life. So I guess the show was a LITTLE sad.
I still can’t believe anyone would attempt a game night sober. Hopefully they were toasted. Potent Notables below!
I DON’T NEED TO HEAR THAT! Tom Arnold was all over the place, word salad-wise, claiming that his fat-boobs are so big that sometimes his newborn baby tries to breastfeed on him.
BEST ‘PICTURE PURRFECT’:
And the runner up….
WORST THREE-WORD DESCRIPTION OF ‘BOARDWALK EMPIRE’ EVER: “Jersey…Shore…Old?” –Tom Arnold
NEVER LISTEN TO PATRICIA HEATON, who tried to guess “Designing Women” when the clue for the “TV: ID” round was “five women.” Burn her at the stake!
WORST ATTEMPT TO IDENTIFY KELLY CLARKSON: After “first American Idol winner” didn’t work, Anthony had to resort to “chubby girl.” Arrrrrrrrgggghhhhh. But! He just won $10,000 for his charity.
BEST CHARADE: Anthony redeemed himself when he attempted to get his team captain Sun Hong to guess Michael Jordan: “The dude who has his own shoe and does this!”
BEST REACTION TO A TRIVIA PROMPT EVER:
Anthony Anderson re: Kristen Stewart: “Uh…. I have no idea who that is.”
THE ONE QUESTION I GOT WRONG ALL NIGHT:
Did you mindlessly watch this too? Not awful, right? A ringing endorsement!
Okay, time to go get drunk with Stacy Keibler and Rose Byrne in my imagination…
