TV Bulletin Board (Mon., Aug. 27) -- American Bible Challenge parts Red Sea, gets highest GSN ratings ever

The Thursday, Aug. 23rd premiere of GSN's The American Bible Challenge is now the network's most-watched program ever.

How do I know? The Bible tells me so. Actually, GSN (former Game Show Network) is trumpeting the show's Nielsen numbers in a publicity release. Bible Challenge drew 1.7 million viewers nationally, the biggest haul in GSN's 17-year history.

"The best-selling book of all time is now GSN's most-viewed program of all time, which proves that consumers are yearning for fun, family-friendly entertainment," says VP of programming and development Amy Introcaso-Davis.

The Plano-based Team Minnie's Food Pantry bested two other teams Thursday to advance to Bible Challenge's semi-finals. Eighteen teams are competing for a grand prize of $100,000 for their designated charity. Team Minnie took home $20,000 for starters. The one-hour show is hosted by Jeff Foxworthy.
