Jane Lynch is no stranger to hosting on television, whether it’s HOLLYWOOD GAME NIGHT (which has been running since 2013) or the Primetime Emmy Awards (in 2011), but she’s trying something new: taking center stage with NBC’s revival of WEAKEST LINK, which debuts Tuesday, September 29 at 8/7c.

The quiz show—which debuted internationally in 2000, before coming to the U.S.in 2001—follows eight contestants (who don’t know each other), who work together to build their prize total by answering consecutive questions…with one contestant voted out each round.

“It’s a very rigid format, which I love about it and I love the way [original host] Anne Robinson navigated that,” Lynch explains in the video below. “I took my cue from how she hosted this show.”

WEAKEST LINK is back on NBC—with Jane Lynch set to step in as the new host.

According to the network, “the new version of WEAKEST LINK will deliver the fast-paced and quick-witted pillars of the original British format created by the BBC with a few modern twists. The hybrid game show sees contestants answer general knowledge questions to bank prize money across multiple rounds. At the end of each round, the contestants vote out who they perceive to be the WEAKEST LINK remaining.” Read more

How well do the HOLLYWOOD GAME NIGHT contestants know Jane Lynch‘s resume?

On the Sunday, June 14 episode, Sam Richardson, Laverne Cox, and Jeremy Sisto play the delightful new season 6 game “Whipflash”—where their everyday contestant/team leader holds up a celebrity’s face on a stick, and the trio have to figure out which film titles (that the trio are holding) that actor was in—and they sail through Steve Carell, Kristen Bell, and Jonah Hill.

But when it comes to host Lynch, can the trio keep their winning streak alive? Read more

HOLLYWOOD GAME NIGHT — one of the most purely enjoyable shows on television — is back for its third season tonight, and it’s “business” as usual for the show’s Emmy-winning host, Jane Lynch.

“That’s what’s great about it: we haven’t changed anything fundamentally, just for the sake of changing it, because it works the way it works,” Lynch told reporters on the show’s set. “[Though] coming up with the new games is always a challenge. And we have more new games this season — we probably won’t even use them all — than we had [total] games the first season. They’re really on their game.”

Among the new additions to the show? A game that features Lynch singing slightly botched song lyrics to the contestants. And though Lynch is no stranger to singing while performing — whether it’s on GLEE or Broadway — she wasn’t the one to push for music to be integrated into her hosting duties.

Many of Fox’s fabulous women gathered on Monday night for a panel entitled, appropriately enough, “Girls’ Night Out,” and the women shared their input on their characters, what they struggled with, and some of the perks of the job.

Before the panel, I asked Jane Lynch (GLEE), Chelsea Peretti (BROOKLYN NINE-NINE), Alex Borstein (FAMILY GUY), Yeardley Smith (THE SIMPSONS), and Heather Kadin (SLEEPY HOLLOW) which television character they’d like to have a girls’ night out with…and their answers were fabulous. (And ranged from people like 24’s Nina Meyers to FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS’ Tami Taylor to MARY TYLER MOORE’s Mary.)
