If you love TV shows, here are some Free Online TV Show Games to keep you occupied until new TV shows are available. Just to clarify, these aren’t free online TV game shows, but free online games about TV shows. Some of these TV theme games are just for laughs, others test your reflexes and some test your television show trivia knowledge, but all of these games are free and require no downloads.
Name That Theme Song Game
If you remember the old Name That Tune TV show, you know the basic premise of this free online game. This one’s a lot of fun as you listen to TV theme songs and identify the TV show the theme song comes from out of four multiple choice selections. You can choose from 10 to 30 rounds and also see how your score compares with others.
Game Hint: Be careful not to make the wrong choice – it will cost you a hundred points.
This game is probably my favorite (which is why I listed it first!)

The TV Game Show
This game is a combination word search and TV trivia game. You compete against a timer to find the words in the word search puzzle. The first round is pretty basic, but the rounds get progressively harder and more interesting. The bonus rounds are a bit more challenging — you have to find the hidden word but are only given clues as to what it is. The cheesy 70’s game show music and sound effects add a lot to the fun of this game.

Deal or No Deal
This online version combines reflexes with the popular game show. Game play differs from the TV version in that you are shown the contents of the briefcases and must eliminate the ones you don’t want. Sounds easy, but the dollar amounts in the briefcases come quickly enough to make this game a bit of a challenge.

American Idol Game
This game combines Guitar Hero (or Dance Dance Revolution) with American Idol. You ‘sing’ a song by clicking on the correct arrow key on your keyboard. It’s pretty addictive once you get used to it.
Game Hint: If you’re using a laptop, you may find the arrow keys a bit small. Give it a try though, the game is pretty fun!

The Biggest Loser
In this deceptively simple game you’re goal is to match up the bad foods and eliminate them. This one’s a lot of fun. As you eliminate the bad foods, they free up items, which will fall toward your contestant. Avoid the bad and collect the good. Sounds simple enough, right?
