SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 7 -- Grab some turkey, stuffing
and mashed potatoes and feast your eyes on GSN over Thanksgiving weekend for
two special programming treats. First, GSN will air the second season of
two-time Emmy Award-winning THE AMAZING RACE in its entirety. Additionally,
fans of black and white overnights will be treated to never-before repeated
episodes of the 1950's game show, TWO FOR THE MONEY.
THE AMAZING RACE marathon begins November 24th from

America, South Africa, Thailand and Australia.
Out from the depths of GSN's prolific library of classic game show comes
eight rare episodes of TWO FOR THE MONEY, a popular Saturday night quiz show
that aired originally from 1952-1957 with Herb Shriner and comedian Sam
Levenson as hosts. The show featured three contestants trying to earn money
for their correct answers in each of the three rounds. TWO FOR THE MONEY will
air from 3:00-4:00AM ET/PT from November 24 until November 27.
