GSN’s “The Chase” Set to Debut Tuesday, August 6th
The Chase is officially on. GSN has announced the debut date of the new quiz show based off the popular daily ITV game. The Chase will launch Tuesday, August 6th, at 9:00PM ET. Its lead-in will be Minute to Win It hosted by Apolo Ohno. Two episodes will air each Tuesday. Hosted by Brooke Burns (Dog Eat Dog), each episode sees a team of three face off against Mark “The Beast” Labbett in a quiz race to win tens of thousands of dollars…if not six figures. The Beast will be hunting them down every step of the way. Each show culminates in The Final Chase where it’s all or nothing for the entire bank.
Just to keep people excited, I heard nearly unanimous praise for the game, Mark, and Brooke. It’s faithful to the UK version which should keep the hardcore people entertained but it’s a very accessible fun, exciting show for newcomers. The Final Chase is, without a doubt, the most exciting two minutes on television right now. Not to mention we have a lot of readers on the show so we’re pretty excited to see it. Everyone else ready?
UPDATE: Thanks to GSN for clarification. The first week, August 6th, will be two new episodes. Every week after that will be one new episode followed by a rerun. So no worries about a four week run. You have many weeks to enjoy.
