Fall 2011 Game Show Season Debut Dates
We’ve got some cool features on The Hub’s Family Game Night and Scrabble Showdown coming soon. However, when discussing some things with readers on Twitter this morning, I got a lot of questions regarding when your favorite game shows would be debuting. The usual debut month is September, and with that quickly approaching I thought having a run down of the new debut dates and what to expect would be smart.
*Family Game Night debuts its second season on September 2nd. You can read our preview of the second season here.
*The Hub’s other two game shows, Scrabble Showdown and The Game of Life, will be showcased in a special preview on September 3rd. We’ll have a feature on Scrabble Showdown soon. We’ve been told nothing but great things about it so I’d be on the lookout for that. Before the inevitable questions get asked: no, it’s not the 80′s version.
*Who Wants to be a Millionaire begins its 10th syndicated season earlier than most: September 5th. New this season are “Double Your Money” days, prizes to questions occasionally, and Club Millionaire. You can click here to read about all the new features we showcased first.
*Family Feud sees its newest season, the second with popular host Steve Harvey, on September 12th. The only change is moving to Atlanta to accomodate host Steve Harvey. When you raise the ratings as much as he did, you do whatever makes the host happiest. We’ve got some features and exclusive set pictures coming soon.
*The other two syndicated shows, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!, debut September 19th. Not changes have been announced for either of these.
*The Price is Right and Let’s Make A Deal both start their new seasons on September 19th as well. Both CBS daytime game shows are getting updated sets, upgrades in money, and specifically Deal will be getting some big new games like “Go For a Spin” and “Strike A Match”, which you can see below.
Did we miss anything? Let us know. What are you most looking forward to? I’m definitely looking forward to Feud and Millionaire.
