�NATIONAL BINGO NIGHT� TO PREMIERE FRIDAY, MAY 18, ON THE ABC TELEVISION NETWORK

For the First Time on Network Television, Series Gives Viewers the Ultimate Real-Time Interactive Experience With the Chance to Win Thousands of Prizes

�National Bingo Night� is a high-energy, truly interactive game of luck based on the popular American pastime. Three games of fast-paced, high stakes Bingo are played each night with the viewing public invited to join along. In each game, a contestant in the studio will try his/her luck against the studio audience for a chance to win cash, trips and prizes. Hosted by Ed Sanders (�Extreme Makeover: Home Edition�), the new series premieres FRIDAY, MAY 18 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on The ABC Television Network, following the season finale of �America�s Funniest Home Videos� (8:00-9:00 p.m.).

In each of three games, viewers can print their own Bingo cards from ABC.com and mark off the numbers as they�re called, so they�ll not only experience the excitement of watching the on-screen competition but can concurrently enjoy the pure fun of playing bingo at home, free of charge, for an opportunity to cash in. Those who get Bingo can log on to win. In the studio, a contestant will race against the studio audience as balls numbered from 1-75 are randomly selected from a giant, two-and-a-half story sphere set in a high tech �Bingo Plex� arena. The audience will track the numbers on their own Bingo cards for a chance to win cash and send the contestant home empty-handed.

The pilot will serve as the premiere, with five additional one-hour episodes to begin taping in April. Casting is underway (for further casting information, go to ABC.com).

The series will be hosted by �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition� design team contributor Ed Sanders. �National Bingo Night� is executive-produced and created by Andrew Glassman (�Three Wishes,� �Average Joe�) for Glassman Media.
