Celebrities Playing Games in a Giant Bed? WHY????

Why, Why, Why, Why are the constants and the celebrities IN A GIANT BED???? Here the CELEBRITIES play the game and all the CONTESTANTS do - while in a Giant Bed - is guess how accurate these stupid celebrities play the game. THE GAMES ARE ALL OF ELLENS, SHE LOST HER SHOW, LOST HER GAMES SHOW AND NOW IS TRYING YO MAKE A NEW SHOW.... it's very clear this show is ALL ABOUT CELEBRITIES.....AND stupidity being in a Giant Bed, playing a game. SERIOUSLY, WHY IT STILL ON TV???

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Someone has vastly overestimated the charisma of Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard. Family Game Night is less of a game show and more of a showcase for the real-life couple, who participate as well as host. So the winners are determined not by contestants' skills, but by how well their hosts perform at a particular challenge. There are times when Bell and Shepard play the games, mug for the camera, and run through some dinner party-type banter, while the contestants just have to sit back and just guess how well they'll do.
