NBC has picked up Ellen's Game of Games for a fourth season. Host Ellen DeGeneres announced the good news on her daytime talk show, which comes six weeks into the prime time game show's Season 3 run.
The series is continuing its solid performance for the network, pulling in decent numbers against its time slot competition and ranking as one of the top evening game shows.
Ellen's Game of Games features supersized versions of fan-favorite games taken from her daytime talk show. Contestants are selected from the audience to compete in a variety of challenges ranging from answering time-pressured questions to maneuvering large obstacles - and even taking plunges into the unknown.

The problem with this show is that it seems fun for the people involved but can be tedious to watch. Ellen may have fun about to do something to someone, and the person might have fun with something about to happen to them, but as a viewer we are just left waiting. It's what dooms most game shows.
Jeopardy and wheel made it for so long because they know how to make the game quick for a person at home. Ellen could learn from this.

I can't figure out what people find enjoyable about this show, and that really surprises me. I love Ellen, and we watch quite a few currently airing game shows that I DEFINITELY don't consider high quality. Game of Games should be perfect for me, but no matter how many times I try again determined to enjoy it, it just doesn't do it for me.
To those of you who do like it, enjoy! Given Ellen's track record, this could easily run a decade or more.

@Lacy I find it funny and you find it trash. To each his own. The world would be an incredibly boring place if we all liked the same things.

Listen I like Ellen...but this kind of show is such trash. Why do people like it?
