D.L. HughleyD.L. Hughley is to host a new game show for NBC titled 'Who's Bluffing Who?'.

According to the Hollywood Reporter NBC has ordered a pilot of the show in which 7 contestants will try to win half a million dollars. Each episode they will use their bluffing skills -- including possibly stealing each other's money -- to advance in the game as they are gradually whittled down to one winner.


Hughley is a stand-up comedian and actor, best-known for starring in the sitcom 'The Hughleys' and for being one of the four comedians featured by Spike Lee in 'The Original Kings of Comedy'. His previous TV hosting duties include 'BET's Comicview', 'Def Comedy Jam' and 'Weekends at the DL'. In 2008--09 he hosted his own show on CNN: 'D.L. Hughley Breaks the News'.

'Who's Bluffing Who?' will be helmed by producer Jeff Applofff ('Don't Forget the Lyrics!') and is a co-production between NBC and ITV Studios, the powerhouse behind 'Hell's Kitchen', 'Nanny 911' and 'Celebrity Fit Club'.

Meanwhile, ABC is also reported to be developing a deception-based game show: Mark Burnett's 'Trust Me, I'm a Game Show Host,' in which contestants have to figure out which of two game show hosts is lying. The hosts in the pilot are former 'Daily Show' correspondent Mo Rocca and comedian Bill Engvall ('Blue Collar TV').

It's on NBC not cable and there is a lot of real TV so your wrong that there isn't any real TV. I can fine almost anything on TV.

Not to be picky, but shouldn't it be "WHO"S BLUFFING WHOM?" Of course, no one uses correct ENGLISH any longer!!

Nobody can create or revive great game shows anymore. All of the great game show hosts have either passed on or have retired and there's NOBODY who can be a good host anymore, except for Pat Sajak and Alex Trebec. Judging by the inferior garbage that the networks churn out nowadays, it's not surprising that their "game shows" suck big time too.

He has a CNN show that was great, during the elections. But no longer on the network. Was insightful and funny.
