  2. The Wall is kind of a nice filler, utility player. I think that Ellen’s Game of Games will be, too. I still like Hollywood Game Night best of the lightweight shows.

    • Same here like The Wall as filler I did watch a little of Ellen’s Game Of Games from what I saw was also pretty good as well. The Questions on Game Of Games seem to be pretty easy not too hard.
