GSN Spreads Season's Greetings and Yuletide Cheer With Christmas-Themed Marathon Programming

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 3 -- 'Tis the season and GSN is stuffing your stockings full of Christmas-themed marathons guaranteed to put you in the holiday spirit. Beginning at 9AM ET Christmas Eve (Monday, December 24th), GSN is spicing up your eggnog with 11-hours of "Card Sharks" in addition to piling 11-hours of "Family Feud" under your tree the next morning at 9AM ET Christmas Day (Tuesday, December 25th).

The Card Sharks marathon will feature some of the best Christmas-themed episodes from the Jim Perry- and Bob Eubanks-hosted eras. Viewers can even log on to http://www.GSN.com/itv and play along with the contestants in real-time (both East and West coast feeds) throughout the marathon.

And on Christmas Day, open up GSN's 11-hour marathon of the perennial favorite, "Family Feud," and even play along with the contestants in real-time (both East and West coast feeds) at http://www.GSN.com/itv. As with the previous day's marathon, all 22-episodes will feature some of the most memorable Christmas-themed "Feuds" throughout both the Richard Dawson- and Ray Combs-hosted eras.

One of America's most beloved game shows, "Family Feud" evolved from the final round of the widely successful "Match Game," in which celebrities filled in the blank space of a phrase in an attempted to match the most popular answers given by the studio audience. "Family Feud" first aired in July 1976 and held an impressive seven-year run as television's number-one rated syndicated game show from 1978 to 1984. Fans of the show can visit GSN.com and log on to play "The Feud" anytime at: http://www.gsn.com/cash/index.php?game_id=36.
