The main point I'll make of espnews' post is this. He states Family Trade is a "decent show, wrong network". I agree. I did post a review the first week it came out, basically stating it was one of their better reality projects, mainly since it doesn't focus on one celebrity.
Family Trade could have been done on another network and succeeded. Sure, it may not have been a MEGA-hit on another network like History or TruTV, but it could have had a better chance at a second life (season).
In a post under espnews', Casey states it's an un-watchable show. If I were to watch more, I wouldn't pay attention to the people really, more the deals. The deals can be weird, but so is a lot of TV today.
I do wish the best of luck to GSN for Minute to Win It. It just sounds like a big risk.
