GSN Renews “The American Bible Challenge” for Third Season
This is probably the biggest no-brainer in a while but GSN has today confirmed that their hit religion game The American Bible Challenge will return for a third season. Jeff Foxworthy returns as host with Kirk Franklin coming back as musical co-host. Nine episodes have been ordered for the third season which will air in 2014.
“We are proud of the breakthrough success of this atypical series,” said Amy Introcaso-Davis, EVP, Programming and Development, GSN. “The American Bible Challenge is GSN’s flagship show that appeals to everyone in the family. This series, along with recent hits ‘Minute to Win It’ and ‘The Chase,’ serves as the foundation from which we will build on and double our programming efforts in the next year.”
The American Bible Challenge is GSN’s most watched show ever. The second season saw its demo ratings increase season-to-season by +34% in W18-49 and +17% in W25-54. The season one premiere was seen by 1.7 million viewers, the highest figure in GSN’s 18-year history.
