It was previously announced for March 28. The official word: GSN announced today a new scheduling line-up and series premiere dates for the network’s tentpole original strip series launching this spring: DREW CAREY’S IMPROV-A-GANZA, a hilarious half-hour of improvised sketch comedy; and LOVE TRIANGLE, in which host Wendy Williams helps daters caught in real-life love triangles; both series will now premiere Monday, April 11, replacing previously announced launch dates.
A new season of THE NEWLYWED GAME, hosted by soon-to-be-newlywed Sherri Shepherd (returning for her second season as host of the show), will premiere on Monday, April 18.
As part of GSN’s original spring programming line-up, the network will showcase a new “love block” of relationship-oriented game show programming every weeknight, featuring LOVE TRIANGLE, THE NEWLYWED GAME and BAGGAGE, hosted by Jerry Springer. The “love block” will then segue into DREW CAREY’S IMPROV-A-GANZA.
Kelly Goode, GSN’s SVP of Programming, said, “BAGGAGE and THE NEWLYWED GAME are our two highest rated series, and pairing them with LOVE TRIANGLE—another relationship-oriented game show—will form a great, original ‘love block.’ We’ll then build on that momentum to lead into DREW CAREY’S IMPROV-A-GANZA, which will give our viewers a must-see block of original programming every weeknight.”
