GSN: A Schedule Change… Yet Again

Yet more changes for weekdays in daytime for GSN. All times eastern.


10:00 am Family Feud (1988-94 syndie, replaces Super Password)
11:00 am Super Password (1984-89 NBC, one hour; replaces Bingo America and Whammy!)

Now despite my issues with lack of variety on the schedule, considering the circumstances, these are actually changes I can get behind. The only question I have is why couldn’t these changes have been made two weeks ago? GSN has the rights to Combs Feud and Super Password, so it makes no sense to have Bingo America and Whammy! in these slots just for a mere two weeks. It’s not like they got an extra Sony show or two from the vault and it had to take time to acquire the rights. Please don’t tell me GSN’s going to start resembling the Hallmark Channel where schedule changes are made every 2 to 3 weeks.
