The 25 Stupidest Ideas For Game Shows

14. Pictionary (Syndication, 1997-1998)

Why someone would think that creating a game show based on the board game that is considered a last resort even in the event of power outages and extreme boredom would be a good idea is beyond us, but clearly someone had a reason because this series ran in syndication from 1997 to 1998. As could be expected, it was basically the game in television series format, with the added feature of a celebrity participating with a team to help its members win a cash prize.

Surprisingly, no episodes of the show ended in yelling matches and fist-fights, which, in our experience, means they probably weren’t even playing the game right. What a gyp.
