GSN Premieres 'THAT'S THE QUESTION' to American Audiences October 2
'Entertainment Tonight' Vet Bob Goen Hosts New U.S. Version That Tests
Contestants' Word Skills and Trivia Knowledge
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 11 -- GSN is bringing the
highly-rated international game show, THAT'S THE QUESTION, to American
audiences starting Monday, October 2. Produced by Scott Sternberg
Productions and hosted by Bob Goen ("Entertainment Tonight," "Miss
Universe"), the fast-paced word game will air Monday thru Fridays from 6:00
- 6:30 PM, ET.
THAT'S THE QUESTION is a half-hour series that combines word scrambles
with a test of world history and pop culture trivia knowledge. Contestants
compete against each other in a race to discover a question.
Clues to the question are revealed by unscrambling words that contain
one extra letter, which is, upon being unscrambled correctly, dropped into
its proper place in the question, a la "Hangman." The players take turns
for the opportunity to unscramble clue words and guess what the question
is, while earning valuable points, which determine who goes to the final
round. The winner's score is translated into seconds of time they are
allocated to try to correctly identify a question and its correct answer in
the grand finale. If they are successful, their prize goes from $500 to
Widely popular in numerous countries around the globe, THAT'S THE
QUESTION is currently setting ratings records in the Netherlands,

Fortune" and "The Hollywood Game." He is also known globally from hosting
