Scripture In Primetime: The American Bible Challenge GAMESHOW
Sign Up For Faithbook
Jeff Foxworthy has made a career of asking dumb questions, but his latest show aims to get at something deeper than a 5th grader's grasp of geometry. GSN's new American Bible Challenge features the redneck comedian guiding game-players through a quiz show of biblical proportions.
The new game show tests viewers' knowledge of the bestselling book of all time, while mixing in current pop culture so the whole thing doesn't feel like Sunday school.
That means several thrilling rounds of game show ingenuity, including one called "Faithbook," in which contestants try to identify biblical characters based on their fake Facebook status updates.
While all that might sound like a riveting hour of television entertainment to you and me, critics haven't been so excited. The Washington Post, for example, called the show "about as dull as it sounds."
But in the end, there's only one critic that matters: Jesus. And what would He do? He'd probably watch The American Bible Challenge when it premieres Thursday on GSN at 9 pm EST.
