Normally, not having cable doesn't bother me at all. Now, I'm kind of wishing we did so I could watch the premiere of The American Bible Challenge on the Game Show Network August 23rd at 8/7c!
I had no idea such a show was even in the works until I received an offer to watch "The Making of 'The American Bible Challenge' " (which you can watch too by clicking on the link). I was pleasantly surprised by what I saw. Hosted by Jeff Foxworthy (did you know he was a Christian?) the show is funny, enlightening, and most definitely family friendly. Not too many of those kinds of shows around nowadays. The show even has a choir that sings upbeat versions of hymns many of us are probably already familiar with!
About The American Bible Challenge
Comedian and author, Jeff Foxworthy hosts this studio-based game in which contestants compete based on their knowledge of the Bible. Utilizing current as well as historical references, questions will be drawn from the rich, dense narrative found in the world's best-selling book. The contestants will share their compelling back-stories and each team will be playing for a charitable organization. The American Bible Challenge is produced by RelativityREAL for GSN, with RelativityREAL’s Tom Forman (“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition”) and Embassy Row’s Michael Davies ("The Newlywed Game," "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire") serving as Executive Producers on the project. Nick Stuart and Maura Dunbar of Odyssey Networks are Consulting Producers.
