The debut of “The American Bible Challenge” game show provided GSN (Game Show Network) its highest ratings ever, the network says.
A total of 1.7 million viewers watched Aug. 23 as host Jeff Foxworthy asked Bible questions of three teams who played for their favorite charities.
The program airs Thursdays at 7 p.m.
“The best-selling book of all time is now GSN’s most viewed program of all time, which proves that consumers are yearning for fun, family-friendly entertainment,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, GSN’s executive vice president of programming and development. “We are incredibly proud of this show and are happy that it connected with so many viewers.”
The game show’s debut also helped GSN set a network record for total viewers for a night (2.3 million).
Baptist Press movie/television reviewer Phil Boatwright called “The American Bible Challenge” the best game show he’s seen since “Jeopardy.”
GSN is found on cable and satellite systems nationwide. On Dish Network, it’s channel 116, and on DirectTV, it’s 233.
