CBS has set premiere dates for its new reality competition shows GAME ON! and TOUGH AS NAILS.

GAME ON!, a comedic game show, is hosted by Keegan-Michael Key. The series will debut Wednesday, May 20 at 8/9c. (THE AMAZING RACE, which was originally supposed to debut then, will premiere at some point TBA in 2020.)  (UPDATED, Tuesday, May 5: GAME ON! will now premiere Wednesday, May 27 at 8/7c.)

According to CBS, GAME ON! “is a series that celebrates the entertainment of sports, based on A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN, the BAFTA-winning U.K. series. The show pits two teams of three, captained by tennis champion and entrepreneur Venus Williams and Super Bowl champion Rob Gronkowski, alongside comedians Bobby Lee and Ian Karmel and rotating sports stars, comedians and celebrities, against each other in over-the-top physical challenges, absurd trivia and epic field competitions.”

TOUGH AS NAILS, a reality competition series from executive producer Phil Keoghan, will premiere Wednesday, July 8 at 9/8c. The series “celebrates everyday Americans who roll up their sleeves and don’t think twice about working long hard hours and getting their hands dirty, in order to keep their country running. Competitors who consider the calluses on their hands a badge of honor will be tested for their strength, endurance, life skills and, most importantly, mental toughness in challenges that take place at real-world job sites. The series is from Emmy Award-winning producer Phil Keoghan (THE AMAZING RACE) and his producing partner, Louise Keoghan.”

“These are two timely and entertaining series for summer,” said Noriko Kelley, Executive Vice President, Program Planning and Scheduling, CBS Entertainment in a statement. “GAME ON! is funny, unpredictable and feel-good television, and TOUGH AS NAILS celebrates the hard-working heroes of America in a uniquely emotional and gritty real-world competition.”
