| Game Show Marathon Comes Soon?
| Tuesday, January 03, 2006
|Wow, could I have been right about something? According to Mediaweek and GSNN, CBS is looking at the 7 episode series for a possible May run. This would put it right in sweeps. CBS's Game Show Marathon, which comes on broadcasters banking on another game show revival partly because of Deal or No Deal, will feature one and off classic games featuring celebrities playing for charity. Some games will include Match Game, Card Sharks, and What's My Line.
Just opinion part now- If this works, you might be seeing some companies looking into revivals of classic game shows even more. ABC still says it's looking for that Saturday time slot for unscripted TV. If they stated that they wanted a show like Millionaire there, which was publically stated, why not just put Millionaire there as a test? Millionaire shaped the competition TV field in this new era of television. It can't get any worse ratings than what's on now.
