GSN TONIGHT: 'THE CHASE', 'CHAIN REACTION', 'FAMILY FEUD' Chase and Chain Reaction are in their fourth consecutive week of new episodes tonight. At 8pm ET, three more brainy contestants go against Mark Labbett, also known as "The Beast". It has been three weeks now since a contestant win (July 23rd) so let's see if we can get one this week. At 9pm and 9:30pm ET, back to back new episodes of the new Chain Reaction with Mike Catherwood air. Family Feud with Steve Harvey airs at 10pm and 10:30pm ET.

Both those shows are probably the best two hours of GSN originals in a long time. The Chase is better than ever while the new Chain Reaction is much more favorable over the 2006-07 version. Smoother host, better set, much improved end game and contestants.

Ratings were spectacular last week for The Chase and Chain Reaction. The Chase hit a midseason high and had its second highest rated episode this season yet (out of ten). Chain Reaction also hit series highs last week in both the 18-49 and total viewer figure.

For renewal, The Chase is a very safe bet and has proven itself with episodes in the winter months and the three episodes so far this summer (which have averaged a tremendous 698,000 total viewers). Chain Reaction, despite its growth spurt last week, has only aired six of forty episodes (and less than 20% of its entire run). Keep watching these two shows if you want to see new episodes in 2016.


  1. See you mentioned Feud at 10 pm. Is it the same season 3 episode or is it the new episodes from the 2013-2014 season? More likely season 3, since the new season probably won't show up until next month.

    1. 2012-13 episodes tonight in primetime and every night except Saturday, which has the 2011-12 episodes.

      GSN does not have the 2013-14 Family Feud season yet.
