Craig Ferguson Is Gonna Be a Game Show Host

Late night host Craig Ferguson is taking on hosting duties for a second show. He's been hired as the host of Celebrity Name Game, a new syndicated game show that'll debut in fall of 2014, THR reports. It's a half-hour show based on the board game Identity Crisis, and it's a fast-paced show that will involve celebrities teaming up with contestants to help guess famous names, including entertainers, athletes, politicians, and cartoon characters. Celebrity Name Game will be produced by Courtney Cox and David Arquette, via their company Coquette Productions. Ferguson, who will become the second Drew Carey Show vet to host a game show following Carey taking over Price Is Right, will still continue to host The Late Late Show.
