Happened to see a scroll during a Family Feud episode today. Of course, GSN is promoting the season finale of Minute to Win It for "The last chance at $250,000" but a bottom scroll stating "GSN's Smash Hit quizzer is back for Season 2"
Smash hit? Really? I'm a fan of The Chase and in addition, GSN creating more quizzers either sports-based or religious-based, in their favor. With The Chase only averaging 464,000 viewers and GSN pushing the finale up two weeks for slumping ratings throughout the middle of August. None of the reruns were doing anywhere near as well as GSN wanted, where some of the runs for the entire week did not cut the top 20, where Feud and Chain Reaction runs did.
I mean, I hope ratings perk for season 2, and I bet numbers will elevate a little. But the only smash-hits on GSN have really been American Bible Challenge and Baggage in the foreseeable pass.
