GSN ANNOUNCES SPRING SCHEDULE CHANGES FOR ORIGINAL SERIES

New Premiere Date for "DREW CAREY'S IMPROV-A-GANZA" and "LOVE TRIANGLE" with Wendy Williams; Both to Launch April 11

"THE NEWLYWED GAME" with Sherri Shepherd Returns for a New Season April 18

Santa Monica, CA - February 16, 2011 - GSN announced today a new scheduling line-up and series premiere dates for the network's tentpole original strip series launching this spring: DREW CAREY'S IMPROV-A-GANZA, a hilarious half-hour of improvised sketch comedy; and LOVE TRIANGLE, in which host Wendy Williams helps daters caught in real-life love triangles; both series will now premiere Monday, April 11, replacing previously announced launch dates.

A new season of THE NEWLYWED GAME, hosted by soon-to-be-newlywed Sherri Shepherd (returning for her second season as host of the show), will premiere on Monday, April 18.

As part of GSN's original spring programming line-up, the network will showcase a new "love block" of relationship-oriented game show programming every weeknight, featuring LOVE TRIANGLE, THE NEWLYWED GAME and BAGGAGE, hosted by Jerry Springer. The "love block" will then segue into DREW CAREY'S IMPROV-A-GANZA.

Kelly Goode, GSN's SVP of Programming, said, "BAGGAGE and THE NEWLYWED GAME are our two highest rated series, and pairing them with LOVE TRIANGLE-another relationship-oriented game show-will form a great, original 'love block.' We'll then build on that momentum to lead into DREW CAREY'S IMPROV-A-GANZA, which will give our viewers a must-see block of original programming every weeknight."

GSN's Monday-Friday schedule as of April 11, 2011, is as follows:

6:30 pm ET --- The Newlywed Game

7:00 pm ET --- Love Triangle

7:30 pm ET --- Baggage

8:00 pm ET --- Drew Carey's Improv-A-Ganza

DREW CAREY'S IMPROV-A-GANZA

An impressive line-up of talented actors and comedians will join stand-up comic turned actor-producer Drew Carey in DREW CAREY'S IMPROV-A-GANZA, his new original, primetime daily strip show for GSN. Carey and his fellow cast members will create a lively, unpredictable and hilarious half-hour of improvised sketch comedy, complete with audience participation. Carey's fellow cast members include Heather Anne Campbell, Jeff Davis, Chip Esten, Kathy Kinney, Jonathan Mangum, Sean Masterson, Colin Mochrie, Greg Proops, Brad Sherwood and Ryan Stiles. Wayne Brady also appears.

LOVE TRIANGLE

LOVE TRIANGLE, hosted by Wendy Williams, will take people caught in a real-life "love triangle" and, in a half-hour format that blends game show with talk show, get to the heart of what really matters in a partner, exploring every aspect of the two different relationships. Each episode of LOVE TRIANGLE builds to a dramatic climax, as the dater decides whom to commit to-but not before Williams gives the contestant a side-by-side comparison of what life would look like with each of the two paramours, using data based on the past and present behaviors of the two potential mates-and a lie detector.

THE NEWLYWED GAME

The next season of THE NEWLYWED GAME will truly bring "something new" to the game-host Sherri Shepherd's recently announced engagement. THE NEWLYWED GAME is GSN's modern installment of the classic series showcasing three newly married couples of wide-ranging backgrounds who face off in a series of question rounds. During each round, a spouse attempts to guess his or her mate's answer to questions about their relationship, ranging from the first time they met to the details of their love life. At the end of the game, the couple scoring the most points wins exciting prizes.

BAGGAGE

On each half-hour episode of BAGGAGE, Jerry Springer guides the fun as one dater chooses among three contestants who reveal the intimate secrets and hidden flaws that are typically kept under wraps to impress a first date. Each contestant enters with three suitcases-small, medium and large-containing the quirky, annoying and sometimes truly shocking "baggage" that may or may not eliminate the contestants from competition, to the accompaniment of the dater's tagline, "I'm sorry, but you have too much baggage." With a lively pace and a playful sense of humor, BAGGAGE lifts the lid on the quirks and foibles we all share.
