Hollywood Game Night hails from Universal Television and Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner's studio-based Hazy Mills banner. The show is based on game nights the Will & Grace alum has hosted at his home with his famous friends.

The celebrity competition series has been a solid performer for NBC, averaging a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49 and 5 million total viewers during its in-season run when factoring in seven days of delayed viewing. That's up from its summer 2013 run, when it averaged a 1.4 in the demo and 4.1 million total viewers. The series rates high with upscale audiences, indexing at a 106 in homes with $100,000-plus incomes.

Hollywood Game Night joins an unscripted roster at NBC that also includes The Voice, American Ninja Warrior, America's Got Talent, Last Comic Standing, The Biggest Loser, Celebrity Apprentice and the just renewed The Sing-Off.

For Hazy Mills, Hollywood Game Night is one of four shows the company has on the air. It joins NBC's fantasy drama Grimm, TV Land's Hot in Cleveland and spinoff The Soul Man.

Hollywood Game Night is produced by Universal TV, Hazy Mills and Mission Control Media's Michael Agbabian and Dwight D. Smith.
