Celebrity Name Game has been renewed for Season 3.
The Craig Ferguson-hosted syndicated game show, from FremantleMedia North America and Debmar-Mercury, will return for a third season, slated to premiere fall 2016, THR confirms.
Jennifer Mullin, FMNA co-CEO, said of the renewal:
“Celebrity Name Game has been a fantastic addition to our game show programming at FremantleMedia. We knew from the outset that this format had something special and seeing Craig win the Emmy for season one only reaffirmed our beliefs. Now halfway through season two, CNG has hit its stride, showing continuous growth, an engaged fan base and clearly has the potential to entertain audiences for quite some time.”
Debmar-Mercury co-presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein, added:
“Celebrity Name Game works so well because it is funny, serving as a viable alternative and companion to sitcoms on stations’ schedules. This is due in large part to its incredibly talented host, an opinion shared by Daytime Emmy voters who awarded Craig the trophy for Best Game Show Host this past season.”
