GSN Premieres 'BINGO AMERICA' on March 31

TV Icon Patrick Duffy Hosts Innovative New Game Show, Weeknights at 7PM/6C

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 30 -- GSN announced today the premiere of BINGO AMERICA, an original, 40-episode series, beginning Monday, March 31 at 7PM/6C. Developed by executive producer Andrew Glassman, the fast-paced, "free-to-play-along-and-win" new series blends all the classic elements of trivia-based game shows with traditional bingo game-play. BINGO AMERICA and host Patrick Duffy will be awarding cash and prizes to both on-air contestants and at-home viewers in every episode.

"Andrew and his team have created something unique that truly works for all kinds of GSN viewers -- traditional game show fans and engaged viewers who want to sit forward and play along for real prizes," said Jamie Roberts, Senior Vice President of Programming, GSN, upon making the announcement. "And we couldn't have found a better fit than Patrick; we know our audience is really going to embrace him."

Said Glassman: "I'm looking forward to bringing this new series to GSN's audience. They're one of the industry's most enthusiastic fan-bases and with free, downloadable bingo cards, they'll be able to play along and try to win every time they tune in."

BINGO AMERICA begins production in Los Angeles today with Duffy making his game show hosting debut. Best known for his iconic portrayal of Bobby Ewing in the Golden Globe-winning series "Dallas," Duffy also starred as Frank Lambert in the ABC hit, "Step By Step."

"The truth is, I love game shows. Especially the classics. They're exciting to watch and fun to play along with because they're real -- these people aren't characters," said Duffy. "I'm thrilled to be working with GSN on a show like BINGO AMERICA that's based on such a widely recognized and easy to play game."

Putting a unique spin on the traditional game show format with free, downloadable bingo cards available at GSN.com, BINGO AMERICA invites every viewer to play along while the on-air contestants compete for their own "Bingo." In addition to "Bingo," viewers have another chance to cash-in during the show's final round, the Bonus Game. In the Bonus Game, any viewer whose "bonus numbers" (located at the bottom of every downloaded bingo card) match the numbers selected on-air becomes an instant winner. And in keeping with GSN's commitment to multi-platform interactive endeavors, fans of the show can also receive "bonus numbers" via text messaging by simply texting BINGO to 94949 on their mobile phones.

Andrew Glassman produces the series for GSN via his production company, Glassman Media. Glassman's production credits include "National Bingo Night," the "Average Joe" and "The Ex-Wives" franchises, and the Amy Grant-hosted network series, "Three Wishes."

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. The Bingo America Home Viewer Sweepstakes is open only to legal U.S. residents, 18 and older with Internet access and a valid email address. Void where prohibited. Game cards available at GSN.com/Bingo on or about March 28, 2008. The Home Viewer Sweepstakes is a seeded instant win game; it is not a state-sanctioned bingo game. Standard text message rates apply to any text message sent or received; entrants requesting additional "bingo bonus numbers" should check their wireless service plan for the exact rate.
