Hollywood Squares (known in this incarnation as The New Hollywood Squares) is an American game show which aired in syndication.

This version of the show plays much like the first Squares, except here many of the stars perform little acts and stunts in their cubicles to coincide with the questions asked. As before, contestants had to agree or disagree correctly to capture a square with an X or O, with a tic-tac-toe winning the game.

The day's champion won one of five keys to a new car. If the car started, the contestant won it. If not, a key would be eliminated provided the returning champ won the next day's championship.

Century Towers Productions produced the series. MGM Television, the successor-in-interest to original distributor Orion Television, handles distribution of the show.
