    Ellen DeGeneres is coming back to prime time, this time for fun and games.

    NBC said Thursday it has ordered six episodes of an hour-long show hosted and produced by DeGeneres. It will feature "supersized" versions of games played on her daytime talk show.

    The new show, titled "Ellen's Game of Games," will pull contestants from the audience and give one a chance to win what NBC described as a "huge" cash prize.

    In a statement, DeGeneres promised "gigantic sets" and hilarious games.
