Happy Easter from Sitcoms Online; GSN News

Happy Easter! We don't have week 30 ratings for you this week. We only have final numbers for Monday and Tuesday, thus we won't post just that. Hopefully this problem will be resolved by May sweeps. I won't do the analysis this week either. We really hope we will have these numbers for you for next week's shows.

So, today we will just continue what we did the last 6 days or so--TV schedule news! Today we will cover GSN - The Network for Games. We don't have any actual regular schedule changes to report, but they are adding a new show, an original one, starting tomorrow night at 11:30 p.m. They will be reviving the classic game show I've Got a Secret, with an all-new look.
Expect 30 minutes of the unexpected when the most revealing game show on television, GSN's I've Got a Secret premieres weeknights beginning Monday, April 17 at 11:30 p.m. EST.
Paying homage to one of the longest running and popular game shows, the series takes viewers back in time to the classic panel show, with the updated version showcasing the swankiest fashions, a retro set, and four comical panelists who will say almost anything to discover the secrets of our guests. It's funny and smart, but beware -- no one's secrets are safe!
I've Got a Secret is hosted by Bil Dwyer, who is charged with keeping his panelists in line. The cast of characters on the panel include Frank DeCaro (Sirius Radio's The Frank DeCaro Show, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), Billy Bean (former outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Detroit Tigers), Suzanne Westenhoefer (Late Show with David Letterman, Politically Incorrect) and Jermaine Taylor (Broadway actor and dancer).
During each half-hour show, the guest whispers their secret to Dwyer while it is also shown to the live studio-audience and home viewer. Each panelist puts the guest through the ringer for 40 seconds, asking yes or no questions to figure out their secret. If they are unsuccessful, the next panelist gets their shot at cross-examining. Should the guest stump the panel, they walk
away with cash and prizes.

And this Mother's Day on GSN...they are the head of the family! GSN pays homage to moms
on Mother's Day with a special six-hour marathon of the popular classic series Family Feud, Sunday, May 14 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET. The marathon encompasses 12 episodes of the famous series featuring women as team leaders. The Mom's Day episodes include shows hosted by Richard Dawson and Ray Combs.
