Strahan, Sajak and Jennings offer laughs and money on ABC Game Night

This fall, Family Game Night will be on Wednesdays on ABC. We’ll see a variety of celebrities on “Jeopardy!”, “Wheel of Fortune” and “The $100,000 Pyramid.”

The evening begins with “Celebrity Jeopardy.” Host Ken Jennings says there’s a big difference between the “Celeb” version and his “normal” job.

“On the regular nightly show ‘Jeopardy,’ I’m often the one trying to wow the contestants during interviews. ‘Can you please tell your story in a funny way, ma’am?’ “It’s the opposite problem here,” Jennings said. “I have to be like the substitute teacher who says, ‘Okay, everyone, let’s have a little fun. But you know, let’s keep calm.’ There is still a lot to do. They are fans of the show and just want to know how they do. Can I win a million dollars for charity? Do I have “Jeopardy” caliber? And I deeply respect them for coming on.”

After the answers and questions, we see the latest version of “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune” with Pat Sajak and Vanna White. Here, too, the celebrities play for their favorite charities.

Then it’s time to take a look at the pyramid. Michael Strahan returns as host of the seventh season of The $100,000 Pyramid. The celebrity guests are bigger than ever, like comedian Tiffany Haddish, and for Strahan that means his job doesn’t really feel like work.

“When I laugh, it’s real. “I can’t believe what people are saying!” Strahan said. “I’m the guest at the cocktail party and I love seeing these celebrities get together with an attendee and watch them work together to win money.”

Strahan says for him: If they win money for themselves or give it to others, then that’s the magic.

“Those are the things that make you realize it’s fun, it’s a game show, but it’s also something that can change someone’s life for the better,” Strahan said. “And that’s the sauce on top.”

ABC’s Game Night will air every Wednesday in prime time this fall.
