The show tasks celebrities to help everyday contestants split into two teams, by assisting them with clues in all but one segment. In one of the segments, Kathryn is asked to describe or act out “famous tall folks.”

The timed guessing game starts off on a strong note, as both contestants do correctly identify tall people and landmarks like Uma Thurman and the Statue of Liberty. But things start to get interesting when one of the women fails to name Jason Segel – “I don’t know! Pass!”

Natpe 2015: Syndie Tides Shift in Wake of High-Profile Flops

16 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Katie Couric couldn’t survive it. Queen Latifah had a short reign. So did Bethenny Frankel, Jeff Probst, Kris Jenner and Anderson Cooper, to name a few. Arsenio Hall and Ricki Lake couldn’t reignite their old spark in recent comeback bids.

The daytime TV landscape has become so fragmented in the past decade as to be treacherous for talent. New syndicated shows struggle mightily to deliver even a 1 rating in the key demographic (usually women 25-54). That makes it harder for stations and distributors to hang in there, even with shows that have promise, because the financials are so shaky.

The struggling is spurring a host of enterprise efforts by distributors and large station owners to shake up the status quo, which could result in big changes to the national syndication model that has dominated broadcast TV daytime programming since the 1980s.

Craig Ferguson Syndicated Talkshow Not Moving Forward

8 January 2015 1:10 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tribune Broadcasting has ended its effort to launch a nightly talkshow hosted by Craig Ferguson.

The station group was behind the effort to launch a half-hour talk-variety strip designed to air in early evening timeslots starting fall 2015. But the roadblock was securing clearances in other key markets. Tribune and prospective distrib Debmar-Mercury could not line up enough affiliates to make the show viable.

Earlier Thursday, Tribune stations renewed the Ferguson-hosted gameshow “Celebrity Name Game” for a second season.

Ferguson ended his 10-year run as host of CBS’ “The Late Late Show” in December.

‘Celebrity Name Game’ Renewed for Second Season

8 January 2015 10:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The syndie strip “Celebrity Name Game” will return for a second season in the fall.

The Craig Ferguson-hosted syndie gameshow, produced by FremantleMedia North America and distribbed by Debmar-Mercury, has done credible business for stations since its September debut. Key station affiliates Tribune Broadcasting and Sinclair Broadcast Group have given the season-two greenlight, ensuring that the show will stick around through the 2015-16 season.

“ ‘Celebrity Name Game’ came out of the gate with an impressive start, building its audience each week, and showing itself to be a strong contender in syndication,” said FremantleMedia North America CEO Thom Beers.

The show is a rare example in recent years of an original game show launch in syndication rather than a revival of a classic format.

“We are very gratified by the broadcasters’ strong show of support,” added Debmar-Mercury co-presidents Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus.
