Storyline

An updated version of the classic game show. Celebrities, each sitting in a square of a giant tic-tac-toe board, are asked questions by host Tom Bergeron. Contestants must then guess whether the celebrity's answer is correct or incorrect in order to gain control of the square and hopefully get three squares in a row.

Trivia

One week of shows would tape in one day which is why they could ensure the same guest for 5 "days" in a row. After each episode Tom Bergeron and the panelists would change outfits and then go tape another one. See more »

Fifth Season Review
13 November 2002 | by (Colorado Springs, Colorado) – See all my reviews

When I got to see the current rival of Hollywood Squares I got tired of it pretty quick. What I got tired of was Whoopi Goldberg and Bruce Vilanch. It seems that others were getting tired of them as well. Even Peter Marshall who was the original "Master of the Squares" said that Whoopi was a poor choice. By the way he will guest host H2 on the December 12, 2002, and regular host Tom Bergeron will play center square for a day.

Enter Henry 'The Fonz' Winkler. Although H2 was his first game show he got involved with, Winkler has done a good job and his brought new life to H2. When Whoopi was center square, she got picked first most of time (99%). The center square still gets picked in the Winkler version but you get different celebrities each week. Bergeron is no longer second fiddle to Goldberg and really does carry the show. Although the front game has cut to accommodate the "How Much You Know about Stars" end game H2 has great energy. The end game is great in which the winning contestant much agree/disagree correctly about statements about the weeks squares within 30 seconds. The more they guess correctly the greater their changes are in winning cars, cash, and trips.

If you have not seen H2 Winkler style, check it out. It's really a 'Square Biz.'
