Reminder: GSN Holiday Marathons Begin This Afternoon

Last month, we received some pretty advance notice on the marathon programming GSN was scheduling to air around the holiday season. We now know what exactly will be airing during each block, plus one extra day of programming has been added since then, as GSN’s viewership cow will be milked once more again on the day after Christmas, Boxing Day, the first day of Kwanzaa, whichever day you prefer to label it. The special programming will start later today at 3PM ET, with GSN’s biggest hit The American Bible Challenge re-airing its first tournament. And of course, later in the week is GSN’s biggest gift to traditional fans with their Match Game Merry-thon. The marathons will rest for a few days, but pick up again with a classic/contemporary Pyramid bonanza until the New Year’s ball hits its base in Times Square. Check below to see what programs will be airing when and to see what will be contained with each stretch of shows.

Sunday, Dec. 23rd: 3PM – 12AM, The American Bible Challenge (The entire first season)
Monday, Dec. 24th: 8AM – 6PM, Minute to Win It (Special themed episodes from 2010-11)

    I personally wish the Harvey marathon was Christmas Eve instead. After the poor numbers last time (Thanksgiving PM), Minute to Win It doesn’t deserve one. Maybe GSN viewers will surprise me.

    Wonder how bad the DOND marathon will do New Years’ Day. I cannot imagine Howie doing great.

  • Scott says:

    They’ll probably air the Christmas episodes of Minute to Win It in this marathon.

    You know, the ones with a top prize of $3,000,000 even though no one still got past the $500,000 level.

    Looks like there may be some easter eggs toward the end of this Match Game Marathon according to the Directv guide…the last episode seems to be an ep where Gene guested on Berger’s version (Nell Carter and Rondell Sheridan were giveaways)

    But before that…there is an HOUR blocked off…for an episode only mentioning Brett, Charles and Gene. Could it be the match games hollywood squares hour…nahh they don’t have the rights…Do they…And may I say 60s match game was boring…Pilot from 70s version airing now.

    May have skipped by it…but in memory of Jack Klugman can they put School Riot on there? Easily the most famous ep he did.

    • NJMark says:

      “School riot” is listed at 12:30, but it says Ed Asner was on, not Klugman. (I don’t remember who it actually was.)

      But Klugman was on the 73 pilot and the 73 premiere, so they’ve got him covered.

      • DENo1MatchGameFan says:

        Ed Asner was on the school riot episode, as he was the first to say ‘college’ as an answer. Jack wasn’t on “MG” until 1978 with Brett, and a couple of syndicated shows in 1981 when Brett was doing a play.

  • I will be no longer certain the spot where you have become the information, yet great subject matter. I’ve got to spend some time figuring out additional or even doing exercises additional. Thanks for great information and facts I’m searching for this data in my quest.
