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 $5,000.

Widely popular in numerous countries around the globe, THAT'S THE QUESTION is currently setting ratings records in the Netherlands, Switzerland and France.

Goen, who served as host of "Entertainment Tonight" from 1993 to 2004, began his broadcast career as a sportscaster and then made the transition to his life-long dream: hosting game shows. Among his credits are "Wheel of Fortune" and "The Hollywood Game." He is also known globally from hosting the "Miss Universe," "Miss USA," and "Miss Teen USA" pageants.

Widely acknowledged for his success in producing a variety of television genres, Sternberg's credits include such top-rated hits as "Hollywood Squares," "Love Connection," "Rock and Roll Jeopardy," "The Extreme Gong Show" and "Wheel of Fortune for Kids." Among his most recent projects are "Square Off," "Sunday Morning Shootout," "My First Time" and "Spying on Myself."
