NBC will strip its U.S. remake of hit U.K. game show across two weeks in an unusual scheduling move. The series will launch on December 19 at 10pm and will move to 8pm for its second week with new episodes airing nightly.
It comes after the show was left off the network’s midseason schedule unveiled last week.

The premiere episode will see Cat Cora, Christina Ricci, Amber Ruffin, Steve Kornacki, Mark McGrath, and Todrick Hall assist competitors across a range of categories from Beyoncé and the ’90s to elections and more.
Other celebrity guests on the lineup include Clay Aiken, Carole Baskin, Brie Bella, Tom Bergeron, Bobby Berk, Jaime Camil, Margaret Cho, Deepak Chopra, Victor Cruz, Taye Diggs, Sheila E., Kate Flannery, Vivica A.Read more on deadline.com
