Watch Moby Transform Into the World’s Most Ruthless Hunter on ‘Talk Show the Game Show’

2 May 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ernest Hemingway. Teddy Roosevelt. Wile E. Coyote. To the list of history’s most legendary hunters, be prepared to add…Moby.

If TV game shows are a reflection of their contestants, then “Talk Show the Game Show” might have reached its early apex. (Well, aside from Tiffany Haddish, of course.) In the exclusive clip below from Wednesday night’s new episode, host Guy Branum gives Moby his most dangerous task yet: hunting his own food. As Branum explains, the electronic musician’s very public vegan-ism presents an opportunity that “Talk Show the Game Show” seemed uniquely qualified to provide.

Marvel at how many rich details this clip manages to pack into 90 seconds. There’s Moby’s diabolical enthusiasm — or blatant disregard of the segment’s judging criteria, depending on how you choose to interpret it. »

‘Talk Show The Game Show’: The Origin Story of TV’s Newest, Queerest, Most Hilarious Mash-Up Series

12 April 2017 9:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Real talk: “Talk Show The Game Show” will penalize a guest for murder, but it adheres to strict guidelines for what that means. “If you murder someone during the course of the game, we don’t have to wait for the entire legal process to play out in the state of California,” host and creator Guy Branum said. “[Head judge] Casey Schreiner can just put you in the penalty box for a period of time, possibly even throw you out of the game.

“Though not necessarily,” Branum added. “It depends on the terms of the murder.”

‘Talk Show the Game Show’: Tiffany Haddish Dishes on TruTV’s Wild New Mashup Series — Watch

30 March 2017 2:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Get ready to laugh and say, “Aww!” “Talk Show the Game Show” is coming.

TruTV debuts its new hybrid show next week, giving stars points for doing all the good things that talk show guests are supposed to do. If you’ve ever watched a talk show and felt like, “Hey, I like that person,” then most likely that behavior would win them points on this show.

Take for example, Tiffany Haddish. In the premiere on Wednesday, April 5, the comedian really starts racking up the points for name-dropping, telling an anecdote and getting lots of laughs. But she can also be docked points for behavior that is unbecoming of a guest, such as excessive name-dropping, being boring or a failure to respect the host or audience.

We don’t know the outcome of Wednesday’s premiere, »

13 March 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Which celebrity will be win the coveted title of “Best Guest of the Night”?

That’s the question that TruTV’s “Talk Show the Game Show” asks when it premieres on April 5. When stars visit late-night talk shows to promote a project or themselves, they need to play nice to win over the host, Guy Branum (“Chelsea Lately,” “The Mindy Project”) and audience. “Talk Show the Game Show” awards them for these skills.

For example, points can be awarded for getting applause by naming a city, flashing the host, singing, using a euphemism instead of swearing and making the audience go, “Aww!”

But beware. Being a bad guest is “grounds for sanction,” whatever that means. (Can we vote for pie in the face?) Bad behaviors include excessive name dropping, white male fragility, being boring, failure »

‘Talk Show the Game Show’ Live: Wanda Sykes Judges Nick Thune at SXSW

12 March 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There’s more to South by Southwest than just the movies, whether it be ultra-rare appearances by media-shy filmmakers or live versions of soon-to-premiere game shows. In the case of the latter, SXSW Comedy presented “Talk Show the Game Show” last night with host Guy Branum, who was joined by Wanda Sykes, Casey Schreiner, Nick Thune, Bonnie McFarlane and Scott Thompson. Watch the entire “episode” below.

Formerly of “Awkward” and “Chelsea Lately,” the writer/comedian/actor played ringleader during the proceedings, which introduced the show’s concept. Utilizing a point-based system — two points for a name drop, three points for flirting with the host — it’s likely the first talk show to require a scorekeeper and actively pit its host against his or her guests. (And everything is scored, including Branum’s monologue.)
