GSN Announces Reality Series “Family Trade” Comes to Tuesdays in March
I have a feeling that this won’t be met with a bunch of excitement from our core readership, but it’s our duty to report on game show-related news. GSN, the now-sometimes-known-as-Game Show Network, has announced the premiere date for their newest original series, Family Trade. The reality series, documenting Gardner Stone and his family-owned Vermont automobile dealership G-Stone Motors, premieres Tuesday, March 5th at 8PM ET. The dealership is known for bartering for items, and the show will depict the kinds of deals the family make. This is GSN’s third original “reality-documentary” (as opposed to “reality competition”) show, after Chuck Woolery: Naturally Stoned and Carnie Wilson: Unstapled. When GSN announced that they were picking up the show for a full series in August, I wrote an editorial piece expressing why I did not think this would work for the network and I still stand by my thoughts. We’ll see if it works out. Decide for yourself – or don’t – this March.
