Storyline

Early on in game shows, when stars took part, they aided players -- to guess secret words on "Password," for instance. Now they're helping them guess names of VIPs in host Craig Ferguson's four-round competition set in a party atmosphere. The celebrity/contestant pairs must identify the famous -- actors, athletes, politicians, cartoon characters, etc. -- based on improvised clues for a chance to win $20,000. The celebrity connection extends behind the cameras; actors Courteney Cox and David Arquette are among executive producers of a show based on board game "Identity Crisis." Written by Jwelch5742

This show is vapid and dares you to change the channel. Besides the fact that the game itself is boring and uneventful, the goal of the game is even worse, to name celebrities, as if we aren't exposed to their sorry identities enough as it is. I can think of ways to make the show interesting, but not without a paycheck. Let's just say guessing the names of burnt-out TV celebrities of the last decade isn't engaging.

David Arquette is a parasite on entertainment. He's actually less interesting than Keanu Reeves, though, fine, not as stiff, but is this really the best concept he could come up with? This show is a poor rehash of the 10k Pyramid, set in a cheap cozy studio that makes it seem like a group of pals playing in a cabin. I'm feeling dizzy.

Arquette just will not grow beyond the sixth grade. He's actually stunted BEFORE high school. I suppose he's at least smart enough to cater to the lowest common denominator - the dregs of the US TV audience.

I'm an adoring fan of Craig Ferguson, and I'd like to support this show, but all it screams to me is an utter waste of his considerable talents AND brains. I can't believe he couldn't rework the show given a chance, but David Arquette is somehow a TV producer now, prob because no one's crazier than he is at blowing his ex-wife's Friends money. The entire spectacle is an atrocity.
