Storyline

Early on in game shows, when stars took part, they aided players -- to guess secret words on "Password," for instance. Now they're helping them guess names of VIPs in host Craig Ferguson's four-round competition set in a party atmosphere. The celebrity/contestant pairs must identify the famous -- actors, athletes, politicians, cartoon characters, etc. -- based on improvised clues for a chance to win $20,000. The celebrity connection extends behind the cameras; actors Courteney Cox and David Arquette are among executive producers of a show based on board game "Identity Crisis." Written by Jwelch5742

Ugh
21 October 2014 | by fung0See all my reviews

What a dismal come-down for Craig Ferguson! This show is boring, predictable, embarrassing and, above all, brutally DUMB - yet another show in which doing well depends on knowing stuff that no intelligent person could possibly care about.

It's hard to describe the horror of watching brainless middle-aged contestants squealing and jumping up and down as they guess at meaningless factoids while being spoon-fed transparent clues by the smirking Ferguson. This show makes The Price is Right look like Grandmaster-level chess by comparison.

The phrase "dump-truck full of money" comes swiftly to mind, when wondering why Ferguson might choose to debase himself in this way. This is a sad, miserable career choice by a once-creative performer. Spare yourself, and avoid witnessing his utter humiliation.
