GSN and 'The Great Emoji Challenge'

Game Show Network is expressing interest and/or did express interest in new Japanese game show import The Great Emoji Challenge. The game show is expected to come to the United States and is currently being pitched around to many U.S. networks.

Besides GSN, The Great Emoji Challenge is being pitched to many other networks and the process has just begun.

In The Great Emoji Challenge, contestants guess what an emoji symbol's meaning is.

So will this come to GSN? Only time will tell. But GSN is not crossing their arms and saying "no" to this import. It's no surprise either, considering a big name like Studio Lambert is behind The Great Emoji Challenge.


  1. This has FYI Network written all over it.

  2. I'm thinking over time this would fit right in with the rest of the games in the GSN museum. Let's see...Burt Ludden's Buffet, Throat & Neck, etc..

    1. That's THROUT and Neck. LOL

    2. Sorry for the typo. Glad the spelling police is out in full force today.

  3. I don't think GSN will take it, because it's being pitched with a top prize of $1,000,000. Sure, they could always pick it up and lower the amount, but I just don't have the feeling it's headed in GSN's direction. If anything, it seems like something NBC would go for, along with that new Lebron James game show that they've already picked up for 10 episodes and will finally air this December.

    Keep in mind, Lambert also produces Undercover Boss (hate it, since it proves that CEOs who earn 7-figure paychecks don't have a clue what they're doing in the first place). And Lambert also produced the Million Second Quiz, which I think may have been their first foray into the game show genre, though not successful in the slightest. Guess we'll see if this idea's any better.
