Making the reason for the show's existence what, then?
It was Bob Barker. He was eating a bologna and cheese-ball sandwich.

For ideal social distancing, I'd rather they get ejected by a giant arcade crane. The Walk of Shame music kicks in, and a big metal claw awkwardly enters the set while all the other contestants stare at the eliminated player.

Per an email conversation with them, they are preferring casting from the L.A. area for now. (4-5 hour drive at max)

This is one show that would actually do well without an audience. It added to the drama here.
Hey, Im TVs Wayne Brady. I use Bald As Hell!

Now celebrating his 18th season on GSF!

Jane Lynch is the perfect choice to host, IMO, if not Anne Robinson! ;)

The above article asks:  "But how good is her British accent."  Personally, she doesn't really need to use one, but I'm sure it's about the same as George Grey's! ;D

I like the choice as well, and considering travel to and from the US is on hold right now, perhaps we get a prerecorded message from Anne? Jane has a dry, sarcastic style that fits perfectly here. Assuming Hollywood Game Night is not canceled, is Jane the first host(ess) to have two network games simultaneously?

This caught my eye too...

The U.S. version arrived in April 2001 and was an instant hit, debuting with NBCs best time slot numbers in five years and averaging roughly 13 million viewers during its first season (which, back then, was only good enough to rank in the top 35 shows of the season). It returned for a second season but its ratings quickly faded, in part because of game show fatigue among American audiences.
I don't think it was game show fatigue as much as it was too many celebrity episodes. Millionaire had the same issue.

/13 million viewers gets you what, the Top 5 or 10 now?

13.1 million viewers would make you #3 after  Sunday night and Thursday Night Football.

The top non football series was NCIS with 11.7 million viewers.

Actually, that will place you at #4 ahead of FBI. NCIS drew 15 million plus this year and was #2 overall sandwiched between the prime time football tilts according to USA Today figures.
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

I think Alex hosted TTTT and Classic Concentration concurrently, no?

Correct, he took over TTTT in February 1991 and stayed until its end in May 1991, while doing CC the whole time.
