Ellen's Game Of Games first debuted on NBC in 2017 with an eight-episode order and originally served as a holiday season fill-in for the network, according to TVLine.

The show has contestants play a variety of quirky games that originated from the 63-year-old comedian's talk show in the hopes of winning $100,000.

It is hosted by DeGeneres, with her talk show co-host Stephen 'tWitch' Boss serving as the announcer. 

After proof of strong viewership, Ellen's Game Of Games was upgraded to a year-round primetime slot.
