Thursday night's premiere of the Game Show Network's new series "The American Bible Challenge," hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy, was a mega-hit -- debuting as the No. 1 program ever on GSN. "The American Bible Challenge" outperformed the previous record by more than half a million viewers and ranked among the top five cable networks in total viewers, women ages 25 to 54, and viewers ages 25 to 54 in its time period. "The best-selling book of all time is now GSN's most-viewed program of all time, which proves that consumers are yearning for fun, family-friendly entertainment," said Amy Introcaso-Davis, GSN's executive vice president of programming and development. "We are incredibly proud of this show and are happy that it connected with so many viewers." The Bible-trivia-based show, which airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m./7 p.m. Central, is a first for mainstream television.
