A few things to top off some GSN news mid-week involving The Chase, Mind of a Man, Skin Wars and pre-1990's status.
The Chase is definitely getting a third season, which we have seen from improving ratings over the second season and this latest batch of episodes versus the first season. Apparently, there have been "continuous deliberations" with "contract/number of episodes/traveling". Not quite sure what to make out of this since I've only heard vague details but maybe GSN is ordering a larger amount of episodes while Mark cannot commit since he works on the UK version as well. I cannot see why Mark Labbett or Brooke Burns would not return. They both seem to like the mass success of the show.
Mind of a Man is not going anywhere. Apparently, Mind of a Man is tracking "Huge DVR ratings (for GSN standards)" and the 18-49 demos have been attractive. GSN over the past few weeks has already ejected Mind of a Man slots out of the schedule, including Sunday and Monday primetime plus some latenights.
As for every year, no word on classic leases or renewals until the end of March for April. It would be smart to guess renewals on Press Your Luck, Sale of the Century, Password Plus and Super Password. It would be cool if Hollywood Squares came April.
