Mario Lopez Hosts New Live Action Game Show “Candy Crush”
Premieres Sunday, July 9 from 9 to 10 PM ET/PT on CBS
          The series is based on the globally renowned mobile game franchise, in which players match colorful candies in combinations of three or more to win points, defeat obstacles and progress through more than 2,000 levels. Candy Crush Saga and its sister title, Candy Crush Soda Saga, are two of the top 10 grossing mobile games in the U.S. On average, 18 billion game rounds of Candy Crush Saga are played every month around the world*.

          In the new CBS series, the game that has become a worldwide phenomenon comes to life as teams of two people use their wits and physical agility to compete on enormous, interactive game boards featuring next generation technology. Teams will use their entire bodies to swing, slide and swipe to make matches in order to conquer CANDY CRUSH and be crowned the champions.
