"Celebrity Name Game" (TV show) is a syndicated fast-paced game show, hosted by Craig Ferguson, in which celebrities team with contestants to identify famous names, including actors, singers, athletes, pop culture figures, places, brands, books, TV shows, movies, foods and even cartoon characters.

On this series, anything can (and will) happen! The series pairs celebrities with contestants as they improvise clues to identify as many correct answers as possible in a given time period. Consisting of two competitive speed rounds followed by a third round where Ferguson provides the clues, teams then must face a broad mix of clues and categories ranging from a single letter to a real life tweet from a celebrity as they enter into the final $20,000 round.
