GSN schedule in 2015: Raw predictions

With Game Show Network expanding their original programming more than ever, currently with seven originals on their plate, four green-lit (The Chase, It Takes a Church, Baggage and Skin Wars) and two more definitely in development (App Wars, Chain Reaction), there are a lot of mysteries circulating around what will happen next year. Here is how I predict the schedule will pan out, as of now:

8:00pm: Family Feud (O'Hurley)
9:00pm: App Wars (new) (if green-lit, but the odds are looking slim to none)

8:00pm: The Chase (new)
9:00pm: The Chase (rerun, but with Skin Wars success with a rerun then new in the same night, I would rather see a rerun at 8pm and a new episode of The Chase at 9pm)

8:00pm: Idiotest (new)
9:00pm: Skin Wars (new)

8:00pm: It Takes a Church (new)
9:00pm: Baggage On The Road (new)

8:00pm: Family Feud (Harvey); or less likely- The Newlywed Game
9:00pm: Family Feud (Harvey); or less likely- The Newlywed Game

8:00pm: Originals rerun (The Chase or It Takes a Church)
9:00pm: Originals rerun (Skin Wars or Baggage On The Road)

8:00pm: Let's Ask America
9:00pm: Chain Reaction (new)


  1. Without ABC, There's nothing to pair with ...Church.You can't pair a trashy dating show (Baggage) with a pious one. Also, ABC's ratings were now- merely average now-not horrible. So, the cancellation wouldn't make sense, unless GSN is outright trying to kill the show.

    1. I still have an odd feeling It Takes a Church will get paired with either 1) Baggage On The Road or 2) The Chase.

      American Bible Challenge does not look like it is coming back, but you never know. GSN pulled the plug on shows like Catch 21 and Lingo (Engvall) with "now-merely average now-not horrible" numbers. Those stuck around in reruns, unlike TABC

  2. App Wars and Chain Reaction are only rumors, so we're not sure if they'll even make it to GSN at all.

    Anyway, here's what I think primetime will look like next year.

    8:00pm The Line (rerun)
    9:00pm The Line (new)

    8:00pm The Chase (new)
    9:00pm Idiotest (new)

    8:00pm Skin Wars (rerun)
    9:00pm Skin Wars (new)

    8:00pm Harvey Feud
    9:00pm Harvey Feud

    8:00pm Baggage on the Road (new)
    9:00pm It Takes a Church (new)

    BTW, I'm on a desktop computer right now because the mobile version of this website still isn't working.

    1. Keep in mind that The Line is expected to air in November and only has five episodes taped. I have not heard much else about the series otherwise.

      The mobile website for this blog is operational again.

  3. I'm not going to post a schedule, but I believe GSN is going to acquire Cedric's Millionaire. I believe it will replace O'Hurley Feud on Monday nights and air 5pm weekdays if Shop til You Drop leaves the schedule. I wouldn't be surprised if it were to gain a late night or weekend slot as well. I also wouldn't be surprised if Bet on Your Baby, Hollywood Game Night, or Wipeout were to be acquired if ABC (Bet on Your Baby and Wipeout) or NBC (Hollywood Game Night) cancels them.
