Game On is telecast Wednesdays, 8 p.m. on CBS. As sporting events continue to be side-lined, as a result of the Coronavirus shutdown, CBS is hoping to fill the void courtesy of its new competition show Game On. Based on the hit British series A League of Their Own, Game On is hosted by Keegan-Michael Key and features teams captained by Venus Williams and Rob Gronkowski, who also serve as exec producers alongside James Corden, who makes a celebrity appearance on the show. Shot last fall before the shutdown, the hair-raising stunts and antics are sure to entertain America, just as it has been doing in the U.K. "The show has run at home for 15 seasons and is a flagship show on the network," explained Corden in a Zoom chat hosted by CBS to promote the series. "America was first to combine sports and entertainment, and we thought if this show had been such a smash in the U.K., and we could find the right trio of people [to host], there was absolutely no reason why this show couldn't work in the United States.
