New game shows will join The Newlywed Game in network's lineup later this summer
Bounce TV has acquired broadcast television rights to The American Bible Challenge and Catch 21 game shows in a new agreement with GSN. Both shows will debut later this summer.
The American Bible Challenge is the highest-rated original series in GSN history. The one-hour game show, hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy, brings together contestant teams who compete based on their knowledge of the Bible as they strive to win prize money for the charity of their choice. Multiple Grammy Award® winner Kirk Franklin serves as musical co-host.
Catch 21 is one of GSN viewers’ favorite series, with ratings and key demo delivery having progressively grown with each season. Its fast-paced game play features host Alfonso Ribeiro quizzing contestants three at a time as they compete to win playing cards, and try to build the hand that comes closest to 21.
Bounce TV recently landed the broadcast network rights to The Newlywed Game, hosted by The View’s Sherri Shepherd.
“After only a few weeks on the air, The Newlywed Game is already an audience favorite and stellar performer, consistently delivering key demos of scale to Bounce TV. We are very confident that the broadcast premieres of The American Bible Challenge and Catch 21 will add fuel to Bounce TV’s skyrocketing growth,” commented the network's COO, Jonathan Katz.
Bounce TV is seen in this region on WAVE ch. 3.3 (Louisville) and WNDY ch. 23.3 (Indianapolis).
