Your HOLIDAY SOR-BAY: The Game Show Network was launched

Here is a "HOLIDAY SOR-BAY" little spark of madness that we could use to artificially maintain our Christmas spirit.


December 1, 1994

The Game Show Network was launched. Game Show Network launched at 7:00 p.m. ET on December 1, 1994. The first aired game show was What's My Line?. From 1994 until about 1997, the network aired classic pre-1972 game shows as well as game shows made after 1972, most of which came from the Mark GoodsonBill Todman library. The network aired game shows in a 24-hour cycle, and also used live interstitials as wraparound programming. In its first few months, GSN's commercials consisted of public service announcements (PSAs), promotions for its programming and commercials related to network parent company Sony. By 1995, when the network began to expand, the network began accepting conventional advertising as it gained new sponsorships.
