Thanks to NBC scheduling, there’s a load to review. The first episode, Party Boys vs. Game Night Girls is very painful to watch thanks to Martin Short. Maybe at comedy, he’s an insufferable genius, but on this show, Short’s just insufferable.

The new episodes are brought to us from the much roomier Jane Lynch Estates. I preferred the previous set, but this one’s okay.

The second episode, “Thing That Go Clue-Boom in the Night,” is much better. Below is an abridged recap of both episodes. Sorry, no round-by-round breakdowns I did on the last season of Hollywood Game Night.

“Party Boys vs. Game Night Girls” – Eugene v. Jennifer

Celebs: Jason Alexander, Lester Holt, Martin Short, Beth Behrs, Valerie Bertinelli, Julie Bowen

New Games (At Least To Me)!

Off the Top of My Head – Team members stand in line each wearing billboard glasses. Player at end of line gives clues to word that’s placed on top of the billboard glasses to player behind him or her.

Show Me The Music – Songs are performed by the house band. While wearing silencing headphones, the team captain guesses the song the other team members are acting out.

Final score: Jennifer – 60, Eugene – 48

Celebrity Name Game: Jennifer wins $25,000, while Valerie wins the same amount for Blessing In a Backpack.

New Games!

Pieceout – Guess the board game given the game piece shown.

Clue-Boom – Basically Catch Phrase played with an explosive popcorn bowl.

Watch a clip of Clue-Boom on Hollywood Game Night:

In Other Words – Players paraphrase a famous movie line. The strict rules forbidding even articles and prepositions are too much.

Final Score: Cory – 53, Caroline – 44

Bonus: Cory wins $25,000 and Tom Lennon wins his 25K for Busted Foundation.
