Bounce TV acquires 'Catch 21' and 'American Bible Challenge'

GSN, TBS and TruTV are not the only networks acquiring game shows.

BounceTV, a strictly African-American based cable channel, similar to BET has acquired former GSN game show Catch 21 and current original American Bible Challenge. Previously, the network acquired The Newlywed Game with Sherri Shepherd, announced in their upfronts. GSN's The Newlywed Game currently airs on BounceTV Mondays and Wednesdays from 7pm-9pm ET and Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 7pm-8pm ET.

The Newlywed Game with Sherri Shepherd continues to dominate ratings and key demos on BounceTV, like it has on GSN since 2009. I can see the tie-in with Bounce TV looking at the roles of Shepherd and Riberio as hosts, and the gospel with Kirk Franklin on American Bible Challenge. I am certain these three game shows will continue to work for Bounce TV.

There is no certainty in either press release on which episodes or seasons of each show.
