Bounce TV Acquires Broadcast Network Rights To 'The American Bible Challenge' & 'Catch 21'

Bounce TV, the nation’s only broadcast television network for African Americans, has acquired broadcast television rights to The American Bible Challenge and Catch 21 game shows in a new agreement with GSN, it was announced today by Bounce TV Chief Operating Office Jonathan Katz

Both shows will debut later this summer.

The American Bible Challenge is the highest-rated original series in GSN history. The one-hour game show, hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy, brings together contestant teams who compete based on their knowledge of the Bible as they strive to win prize money for the charity of their choice. 

Kirk Franklin serves as musical co-host. 

The American Bible Challenge is produced by RelativityREAL, with RelativityREAL’s Tom Forman (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition) serving as Executive Producer on the project along with Janelle Fiorito.  

Catch 21 is one of GSN hit series. Alfonso Ribeiro host the fast-paced game show that features Ribeiro quizzing contestants three at a time as they compete to win, playing cards, and try to build the hand that comes closest to 21. 

Catch 21 was created by industry veteran Merrill Heatter and is executive produced by Heatter and Scott Sternberg of Scott Sternberg Productions.

Bounce TV recently landed the broadcast network rights to The Newlywed Game, hosted by The View’s Sherri Shepherd.

After only a few weeks on the air, The Newlywed Game is already an audience favorite and stellar performer, consistently delivering key demos of scale to Bounce TV. We are very confident that the broadcast premieres of The American Bible Challenge and Catch 21 will add fuel to Bounce TV’s skyrocketing growth,” commented Katz.

Uh, 'skyrocketing growth?' Isn't that exaggerating just a tad? Any time I turn on BounceTV it seems as though they are showing the same '70s Blaxsploitation films over and over again.

The only thing I tend to watch on that channel nowadays is the Black Enterprise series and even then I see numerous repeats.

I know it takes time to build a network but I think I was expecting more by now.
