Come through Steve Harvey, Alec Baldwin, and Michael Strahan – three of the hottest names in Game Show hosting who have all scored the cover of TV Guide’s “Game Show Fever” special edition.
The June 27 special issue, is set to hit stands this Thursday, June 23, and will tackles the iconic format and asks the three popular personalities to spill the beans about their latest hosting gigs, all a part of ABC’s new prime time lineup.
Steve Harvey reveals how he approaches Celebrity Family Feud a bit differently than the traditional version of Family Feud:
“You’ve got to be careful because you’re dealing with some pretty big egos when talking to celebrities. Celebrities really have a problem coming across as normal people, especially when they get something wrong. A lot of the questions on Family Feud are such regular-person questions, and a lot of celebrities are so out of touch. They’ve got people who do their hair and go grocery shopping for them, so they don’t know how much a damn gallon of milk is!”
Alec Baldwin said he only called a few of his friends to join the panel for Match Game.
“I’m careful not to call too many people who would think it would be a waste of time. We reached out to the 30 Rock cast for obvious reasons, but you know the ones who would do it and the ones who won’t.”
And as Michael Strahan prepares to take the helm of $100,000 Pyramid, originally hosted by TV legend host Dick Clark, he reflects on stepping into the shoes of another TV legend, Regis Philbin:
“Thank goodness I didn’t kill the show that Regis built!”
Each of these guys is sure to bring something new and exciting to these new game shows and I can’t wait to see how they make them their own. Which host are you amped to see?
