Hip-hop squares

Announced in March, MTV2 secured rights to reboot the classic game show Hollywood Squares... but with one major switch: it'll be called Hip Hop Squares.

The show’s nine tic-tac-toe quadrants will be populated by hip-hop personalities; Nick CannonDJ Khaled, Biz Markie, Ghostface Killah, Fat Joe, Mac Miller and MGK have all signed up to fill the squares; as have Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Lamarr Woodley, Jackass crew member Bam Margera and actress Kat Graham.

Hip Hop Squares launched with an initial 10-episode run on MTV2, which started last night actually - Tuesday, May 22 at 11 pm; did any of you remember to check it out? I didn't.

But clearly many did because it's being reported that last night's debut episode became MTV2's "highest rated and most watched series launch in the P12-34 demographic ever!"

P12-34 meaning persons 12 to 34 years old - MTV2's core audience.

So, I'll ask again, anyone watch? Not you? Well, you're in luck, because I embedded the full episode below:

    MTV had the nerve to come up with a mtv2? lol. Let's see how long before some of the contestants on hiphop squares begin shooting each other.

    Mr. Mariah Carey has his own show on Mtv for Gen Z. Another reason why I don't have cable, thx for reminding me.

    MTV2 is, like, 15 years old and if no one got shot on the set of Belly or any of those Master P-produced movies, I doubt anyone's getting shot on a Nick Cannon show. Not that I'll be watching.

    Hey I salute, applaud, that they got those high ratings, it's the pants sagging, foul mouth, ill mannered to woman, supreme ghetto audience, I support their freedom to choose and watch, No I did not, will not watch, and do not wish to be any where close to them in all endeavors of life!

    That is their show thank you very much and I hope it is a hit all the way
