"Family BrainSurge" on Nickelodeon is a continuation of "BrainSurge." Jeff Sutphen returns to host the third season featuring celebrity guests playing with their families, including Larry King, Vanessa Williams, Joey Fatone, Jennie Garth, Nicole Eggert, Candace Cameron Bure, Anthony Anderson, Terry Crews and WWE Superstars. Also, several Nick stars from "iCarly," "Victorious," "Bucket & Skinner," "Supah Ninjas" and "House of Anubis" partner with regular parent and kid teams. "Family BrainSurge" will continue to offer viewers even more brain twisters, signature slime and the fun of families playing together while competing for prizes.

"Family BrainSurge" features teams of parents and kids who compete in mind-bending challenges, guided by Sutphen, that test their visual, memory and analytical skills with the shared goal of now winning bigger and better prizes, such as trips for the whole family. If a team gets a BrainFreeze and can't think of the answer, they can choose to use their BrainTrust—a family member in the audience—to help solve the puzzle. As kids are eliminated they get sucked into the "Face Wall" or slide down the "Brain Drain," if the winning contestant completes the all three levels of "Brain Trip" level they get the ultimate prize: a giant, messy, celebratory sliming for the family!

"Family BrainSurge" is produced by 310 Entertainment and Stone & Company Entertainment. The executive producers are Clay Newbill for 310 Entertainment ("Shark Tank"), Scott A. Stone ("Legends of the Hidden Temple") for Stone & Company Entertainment and David A. Hurwitz ("Fear Factor"). The game show is based on the Tokyo Broadcasting System Television program "Brain Survivor."
