Not trying to pick fault at all, but this series does feel a bit... bitty, not gelling too well. I think a TV show needs soul, and in order to have soul, there has to be an element of originality that the team have brought to the table themselves. Make Em Laugh and Read My Lips are directly lifted from YouTube, so 'not original' is a pretty accurate description.
As for Morecambe and Wise, that was their ACT (similar to The Two Ronnies and numerous other double acts) Ant and Dec are (very good) PRESENTERS, that some have compared to M&W because there's two of them and they sometimes did little skits. For me it feels unnatural to try and crowbar whole M&W-styles routines into their presenting.
Both of those games are ones I played versions of as a child. There are far more original game ideas on YouTube.
EDIT: To clarify, I fear their entire existence as generic games are because the idea was lifted from somewhere or something else, and are hardly groundbreaking new formats being stolen and going unattributed.
