Jerry is a painful idiot to watch!!! We love the game of pictionary so that is the only reason we tape this show and obliterate Jerry the NUT CASE in fast forward He is overly familiar with guests resting his hand on them while they draw which is creepy vibe!!!!! Who is this bisexual trying to game on?

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

As proven by Hollywood Game Night, silly games plus raucous celebrities can equal TV gold. Pictionary, however, fails to deliver on any part of this equation. Surprisingly, the show doesn't offer any kind of twist, opting instead to fill all thirty minutes with round after monotonous round of the classic drawing and guessing game -- which show creators failed to realize is way more fun to play than it is to watch. Host Jerry O'Connell doesn't do much and the lack of a studio audience and weird laugh track make the whole thing somehow chaotic and boring at the same time. To add to the forced, cringeworthy feel, the B- and C-list celebrities aren't terribly convincing in their bid to look like they're having fun. Considering there's a whole host of better celebrity game show options out there, this is one to skip.
