On Wednesday, CBS revealed that everyone’s favorite game show The Price Is Right will air three times in primetime during January 2021.

The new primetime episodes are titled The Price Is Right At Night, and will feature celebrity guests. In fact, the game show’s official Twitter account shared that actor and comedian Adam Devine and rapper Ludacris will each join one of the primetime shows.

“This just in. There will be THREE new #PriceIsRight At Night primetime specials! Paging @Ludacris and @AdamDevine! Read all about it,” the account tweeted.

CBS announced that the primetime specials will air on Wednesday, Jan. 6, Wednesday, Jan. 13, and Wednesday, Jan. 27 at 8 p.m. EST. Drew Carey will fill his usual role as host of the special night-time game shows. In addition, CBS revealed that Devine will join Carey for the Jan. 6 episode, and Ludacris will join the host on Jan. 13. A third special guest will be announced for the Jan. 27 episode at a later date.

Each of the celebrities will join the game show to play for their favorite charity. Devine has chosen to play for The Children’s Miracle Network. Other contestants will play alongside him like normal. However, they will be playing for huge winnings like luxury cars and $100,000 cash prize.

Likewise, Ludacris will play as well, but he’ll be representing his own charity, the Ludacris Foundation. He too will play alongside other contestants who have the chance to win NFL season tickets or even a brand new sports car.

Another fan-favorite game show is also getting its own late-night time slot. Let’s Make A Deal Primetime, hosted by Wayne Brady, will air their brand new primetime special on Monday, Jan. 18 at 9 p.m. EST.

The Let’s Make A Deal special will also welcome some special guests that Monday night. Billy Gardell and Folake Olowofoyeku from CBS’ sitcom Bob Hearts Abishola will join Brady as guests. During the primetime special, more than $300,000 will be up for grabs in cash and prizes. Additionally, Brady will give away $21,000 to lucky contestants throughout the special to celebrate 2021.

Both primetime game shows will air live on CBS and on the channel’s streaming service CBS All Access.
