Kelly normally wears long skirts and dresses on LIVE!

Sparking an epic "battle of the ages," the show is in fact a revival from a similar competition popular in the late 1960's. It's produced by the host's production company with her husband, Mark Consuelos, known as Milojo, alongside none other than Jimmy Kimmel’s Kimmelot, as well as MGM Television.

The comedy quiz show groups family members of different generations, making them work together to answer questions about each other’s generations, featuring pop-culture trivia and challenges.
