It’s a bit of a slow week in terms of shows we want to recommend (so much so that I may be the only one all week! 😉 ), but I’m super excited because almost every day this week, I get to recommend a game show (or two…or three…)! Yay! Tonight is all about ABC for me – the season premieres of: Celebrity Family Feud, hosted by Steve Harvey; The $100,000 Pyramid, hosted by Michael Strahan; & To Tell the Truth, hosted by Anthony Anderson – and his momma. The celebs play for charity on Feud, to help regular people on Pyramid, and just for the fun and friendly competition on Truth, but all of them are a lot of fun and just right for everyone to sit down and relax to.

On tonight’s episode of Celebrity Family Feud, “Team Teigen/Legend vs. Team Vanderpump Rules and Karamo Brown vs. Terry Crews,” songster John Legend and his wife, model/actress/TV personality Chrissy Teigen play for City Harvest against Lisa Vanderpump and friends for The Vanderpump Dog Foundation, and then it’s Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown and his family playing for OutRight Action International versus actor/TV personality Terry Crews and his family for Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

Then on The $100,000 Pyramid, it’s actress/comedian Rosie O’Donnell vs. actress Leslie Jones, followed in the second game by actress Cheryl Hines vs. actor/TV personality Anthony Anderson.

And finally on To Tell the Truth, the celebrity panel consists of Snoop Dogg, Oliver Hudson, Justin Long, and Amanda Seales. The panel is presented with a variety of participants with interesting stories, from someone saved by a humpback whale, to a professional mourner and a LEGO master builder.

To check out all the fun, tune in to ABC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing The Great Food Truck Race & Ripley’s Believe It or Not! hosted by the great Bruce Campbell.

I love the Sunday night gameshows on ABC. I watch them every week. And sometimes they’re better than others, simply because of who the celeb guests are. This week, each show has some great stars on, so I wanted to point them out in case you’re not used to watching.

First up, on the two games of Celebrity Family Feud, it’s a Shonda Rhimes match with the stars of Grey’s Anatomy versus the stars of Station 19: Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey), James Pickens Jr. (Richard Webber), Kelly McCreary (Margaret Pierce), Sarah Drew (April Kepner), & Giacomo Gianniotti (Andrew DeLuca) vs Jason George (Ben Warren), Jaina Lee Ortiz (Andy Herrera), Danielle Kathleen Savre (Maya Bishop), Okieriete Onaodowan (Dean Miller), & Barrett Doss (Victoria Hughes). Following that it’s pop-rock duo Aly & AJ versus co-host of The Real, Adrienne Houghton, and their families.

Then on The $100,000 Pyramid, it’s mostly a Brooklyn Nine-Nine night… First up is Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live & the short-lived Me, Myself & I) competing against Melissa Fumero (Amy Santiago on Brooklyn Nine-Nine). Following that it’s Terry Crews (Terry Jeffers on Brooklyn Nine-Nine) competing against Andrew Braugher (Capt. Holt on Brooklyn Nine-Nine). Should be a fun game!

Finally, on To Tell the Truth, it’s model Ashley Graham and funnymen Donald Faison, Craig Robinson, & Adam Pally. They’re presented with someone who skydived without a parachute, millionaire golf ball diver, & more.

The three fun shows air on ABC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Food Network Star, Private Eyes, & Iron Chef America.

It’s a new reality/game show block on ABC starting tonight, and I couldn’t be more excited. First up is the fourth season premiere of Celebrity Family Feud. My family and I love watching Family Feud. Our favorite hosts are Steve Harvey and, from way back when, Richard Dawson. Thankfully, Steve Harvey is the host of Celebrity Family Feud, because he makes this show fantastic. The celeb families are usually pretty fun too. Tonight’s first game features singer/American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson (along with her friends and family: sister Alyssa, friends Shane and Ashley, and personal assistant Tricia) and comedian Amy Schumer (along with friends and family: sister Kim, friend Kevin, brother Jason, and sister-in-law Cayce). The second game features DWTS winner Bindi Irwin (along with her family: mother Terri, brother Robert, and cousins Daniel and Sara) and actress Chrissy Metz from This Is Us (along with her family: mother Denise and sisters Monica, Morgana, and Abigail). The four of them will compete for their favorite charities.

Following that show is new series Steve Harvey’s Funderdome, which is a little like Shark Tank…but a lot more lively. In each episode, aspiring inventors will go head-to-head to win over a live studio audience to fund their ideas, products, or companies. The audience will vote to determine the winner of each head-to-head battle. In the end, Steve will present the inventors with a major dilemma. One of the inventors is allowed to cash out and walk away for a lesser amount. If they cash out, they can’t win the whole cash prize for that round. If they lost the crowd vote, then they’re better off. If not… Oops? Some of this week’s inventions are an all-in-one picture-hanging tool, vegan soaps, and a holistic soap that helps keep a woman’s private parts fresh and clean. (Wtf? LOL) This show could be a lot of fun, given that Steve Harvey is hosting. The previews I’ve seen have him laughing and having a lot of fun with some of the products. I’m hoping it’ll be really enjoyable!

Finally, The $100,000 Pyramid is back with Michael Strahan hosting. Pyramid is always one of my favorite game shows to watch on reruns, and I loved the first season of this one. So I’m excited to have it back for season 2 tonight. First up it’s actress Leslie Jones vs actor/musician LL Cool J. The second episode features host Tom Bergeron vs singer Jennifer Nettles. Both episodes should be fun to watch, but I think Tom and Jennifer will play a better game. Guess I’ll see if I’m right!

Catch all the fun and excitement tonight on ABC starting at 8/7c.

I’ll also be watching/DVRing Guy’s Grocery Games & Food Network Star.
