He may be hot, and he may play Superman, but Tyler Hoechlin can’t leap over a troublesome Hollywood Game Night clue in a single bound.
Tuesday’s episode of the Jane Lynch-hosted NBC game show features celebrities Hoechlin (Supergirl), Pamela Adlon (Better Things), Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm), figure skating commentators Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir, and stand-up comedian Iliza Shlesinger.

Hollywood Game Night airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on NBC.
