*Skin Wars airs Wednesday at 9pm and will rerun 10 times: Wednesday 12am (replacing Baggage); Thursday 10pm (replacing Family Feud); Thursday 3am (replacing Baggage); Friday 11pm (replacing Family Feud); Saturday 3pm (replacing Dog Eat Dog); Saturday 8pm (replacing Family Feud); Saturday 12am (replacing Mind of a Man); Sunday 1pm (replacing The Chase); Sunday 10pm (replacing The Newlywed Game) and Sunday 2am (replacing The Pyramid)

*It Takes a Church reruns have been cut back to 3 a week.
*Richard Karn's Family Feud lives on the schedule for another week, at least.

All Times Eastern


  1. I'm not sure if a new episode of The Chase would help Skin Wars any more than Harvey Feud would. I think GSN should rerun the new episode of The Chase at 11pm.

    Yikes! That's a lot of reruns for Skin Wars, I hope they're not all permanent.

    The Newlywed Game still has the same amount of airings a week. It gains 2 hours on Friday night and loses 2 hours on Sunday night.

    I'm guessing that Idiotest will rerun Sundays at 8:00 and 9:00pm, assuming Game Show Moments Gone Bananas is once again a one week placeholder.

    I'm happy yet surprised that It Takes a Church is still on the schedule. I wonder if it has any chance at a second season.

    The Pyramid going away doesn't surprise me that much, since GSN is currently airing "New to GSN" episodes of $25,000 Pyramid.

    1. It Takes a Church is going to get a second season because i seen a promo on GSN that It Takes a Church is looking for contestants.

    2. That's a good indicator they will pick up season 2. Saw.

  2. And also, Shop 'til You Drop will revert back to the Beginning of the PAX version on Friday, May 1st @ 5PM

  3. And Don't Forget, New-to-GSN episodes of Shop 'til You Drop with Pat Finn begins Tomorrow Afternoon @ 5PM

    1. Which are episodes 556(201), & 557(202) for today. For Monday, July 28th, 2014, they're 558(203), & 559(204). For Wednesday, July 30th, 2014, they're 560(205), & 561(206) & on Thursday, July 31st, 2014, they're 562(207) & 563(208).
