Blake Shelton and Carson Daly’s game show Barmageddon now has a premiere date. The show will kick off on the USA Network on Monday, Dec. 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The Voice buddies Blake and Carson star in and executive produce the celebrity game show you never knew you needed. WWE Hall of Famer Nikki Bella will host. The superstar trio goes all in on a good time as they head to Nashville and invite the audience into Blake’s bar, Ole Red, for a front row seat as their celebrity friends compete in over-the-top bar games.

With Carson behind the bar and Blake taking the stage with his house band for live music sing-alongs, the duo show a new side to themselves in this anything but ordinary game show where everyone is invited to the party. The pair offer words of encouragement – and no shortage of heckling – to their celebrity friends, stepping in on occasion to show off their own skills.

Celebrities play fun bar games

Nikki sets the stakes as celebrity friends go head-to-head in a series of classic bar games with a fun twist, including Air Cannon Cornhole, Keg Curling, Drunken Axe Hole, Sharts (“Shelton Darts”) and more. 

In each episode, two celebrities play a unique set of five games in the bar to win a much-needed prize for a viral Internet sensation each has chosen to support. Plucked from obscurity following their epic misadventures on the online, these now-infamous stars find themselves at Ole Red hoping to be redeemed.

The competition heats up when the losing rival of each round has a chance to even the score by spinning the Wheel of Redemption, a risky move with hilarious consequences. Ultimately, the winning team takes home a prize while the losing celebrity must accept the shame of defeat. But this is Barmageddon – even if they don’t win, at least they had fun trying.

Since no party is complete without great music, Blake performs the “Barmageddon” theme song written just for him and the show by his friends and fellow hit makers Jimmy Buffett and Mac McAnally.

Celebrity guests competing against each other are:

  • Gwen Stefani vs. Sheryl Crow
  • Elle King vs. Chris Young
  • Clint Bowyer vs. Jimmie Johnson
  • Sasha Banks vs. Brie Bella
  • Jay Pharoah vs. Martin Kove
  • Trace Adkins vs. Coach Mike Vrabel
  • Blake Shelton vs. Kane Brown
  • Lil Rel Howery vs. Malin Akerman
