Games on TV

Games on TV shows
seem to be so much more fun
and I want to play!

New Girl introduced it's viewing audience to True American! The first preview of the game was Winston being belted with tennis balls while "Lava! Lava! Lava!" was being chanted. I was intrigued. Next, Jess expressed disappointment when she found out her roommates played without her. Not even halfway through the episode, we got to experience what exactly True American is - and it is awesome. Sadly, I can't find a clip, but you should watch the whole episode on hulu or on fox's website if you aren't already watching live or via dvr.

It got me thinking about other games on tv shows and how most of time when casts of characters play a game, real or made up, it's pretty fun for the viewers. I assume because it HAS to be amazingly fun for the writers to come up with crazy rules or fitting character reactions.

Here are some of my favorite real and made up games on tv.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Chardee McDennis

Oh, The Gang, you all are crazy.

Friends: [They played a lot of fun games]: Bamboozled Embedding was disabled but here's the link:

Community: Dungeons and Dragons

Cougartown: Movie Mashup

But then again, their lives are 98% a drinking game.

30 Rock: Marry, Boff, Kill [not a great clip- but all I could find]:

Lutz has lost some serious weight!

There are so many more instances of real or made up games on tv that just make me giggle. What's been your favorite game playing scene on a tv show?
