You might not have to stay up for the Late Late Show to catch Craig Ferguson anymore. The Scottish-born talk show host has been signed to host a new syndicated game show next fall. In a string of recent celebrity-driven game shows, Celebrity Name Game is based on the popular board game Identity Crisis. Celebrities will team up with regular contestants to guess the famous names of actors, singers, athletes, and even cartoon characters.

“I have to do a show which is of interest to me and Celebrity Name Game is certainly that,” said Ferguson. The deal follows Steve Carell’s Slide Show on Fox and Jane Lynch’s already successful NBC celebrity game show, Hollywood Game Night.
