If you haven't already started tuning in, do know that there are a plethora of game shows to dive into during your usual primetime TV viewing that'll have you stretching your knowledge, scoffing at contestants' choices, and sitting rapted waiting to see if the person you're rooting for will win.

Much of what's on offer to watch game show wise this summer got its start in May but there are more offerings yet to make their land. Let's dive into the programs you'll definitely want to be checking out! Below you'll find a list of series premiering or returning with new episodes from June to August and where you can watch them.

Summer game shows to watch on TV

Name That Tune

Premiere date: Monday, June 3 at 8 p.m. ET
Channel: FOX

The music based game show returns with "Eyes on the Prize" which sees talk show host and Queer Eye star Karamo Brown competing for Talented Twelve and The Bachelorette's Kaityln Bristowe playing for The Lemons Foundation. The episode also features Joey, a realtor from Charlotte, NC who is going up against Valerie, an Associate Director of Financial Aid who hails from Staten Island, NY.

The 1% Club

Premiere date: Monday, June 3 at 9 p.m.
Channel: FOX

Hosted by Patton Oswalt, this unique game show pits the nation against each other. The goal is to land in the 1% Club--a group of people who've outwitted 99% of the population by answering the most questions correct. Put simply, this is a game everyone can play. While the contestant is going for the cash prize, viewers at home can play along via the app. Every question on the test you'll be taking has a right answer but, as you're answering, you may find yourself giving a series of funny wrong answers as the game rolls along.

The Wall

Premiere date: Monday, July 1 at 10 p.m.
Channel: NBC

The action-packed game series returns with new episodes this summer that'll feature contestants like the baseball coach who donated his kidney to one of his players and a community hero who was exonerated after wrongfully being convicted and who now runs a non-profit organization that helps people who've been impacted by incarceration.

They'll have the opportunity to win up to $12 million dollars if they can successfully answer questions with their partner. Each correct answer triggers the release of a green ball that falls down the four story wall to add to their winning total. But each incorrect answer releases a red ball that will deduct from their winnings.

Celebrity Family Feud

Premiere date: Tuesday, July 9 at 9 p.m. (On July 16, the series will move to the 8 p.m. slot)
Channel: ABC

The game show is celebrating 100 episodes and its 10th anniversary this summer! ABC has a special scheduled, Family Feud: Decades of Laughs, ahead of the season premiere at 8 p.m. It'll honor 50 years of the franchise before viewers are dropped straight into a new episode of the celebrity edition of the program.

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire

Premiere date: Wednesday, July 10 at 8 p.m.
Channel: ABC

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire is celebrating a milestone as well. The series is turning 25! This season will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and it'll be a celebrity edition. There's a twist, too. The two celebrity contestants playing each episode will be competing together in the hopes that they'll be able to win $1 million dollars for the charity of their choosing.

Press Your Luck

Premiere date: Thursday, July 18 at 8 p.m.
Channel: ABC

The hit game show is primed to have its at-home audience on the edge of our seats as we watch contestants battle it out to be the lucky player who gets to add to their winnings in a series of rounds that could make or break the prize and cash pot they've collected. Who will escape the Whammies and whose greed will leave them going home with their pockets lighter than they hoped? Finding out is half the fun!

Lucky 13

Premiere date: Thursday, July 18 at 9 p.m.
Channel: ABC

The network is premiering a brand new game this summer! Co-hosted by Shaquille O'Neal and Gina Rodriguez, Lucky 13 is a high-stakes quiz show that tests contestants' knowledge of what they do and don't know. They'll answer 13 true or false trivia questions, but they'll also need to accurately predict how many of the questions they answered correctly. If they know themselves well enough, they could walk away with $1 million dollars.

Let's Make a Deal Primetime

Premiere date: Wednesday, Aug. 7 at 8 p.m.
Channel: CBS

The summer edition of the game show will feature episodes like "Ultimate Zonk Redemption" which will see former contestants return who'd been zonked in a previous episode. They've come back to vindicate their loss and hopefully win. There's also "Otter Chaos," an episode that has a first in the show's history! For the first time, the "Big Deal" will include every car that's featured in the episode.
