Ellen’s Game of Games

NBC | 8:00 pm

The new episode "You Can’t Handle the Toothpaste" name-checks one of the game challenges included tonight, something called "Tuba Toothpaste," which is likely to prove both daunting and silly for at least one contestant. The competition opens with "Dizzy Dash," wherein two seated contestants are spun back to back on a turntable while host Ellen DeGeneres fires trivia questions at them. The winner of each round moves on to "Know or Go," then — with luck — "Hot Hands" and a shot at the big prize.
