    New Reality Show "Game Show Marathon" Coming To CBS

    There is a new reality/game show coming to CBS. It's called "Game Show Marathon". I've posted the article below.

    GAME SHOW MARATHON (CBS) - Ricki Lake ("The Ricki Lake Show") and Stuart Krasnow ("The Weakest Link") have signed on as host and showrunner respectively of the upcoming game show, in which celebrities compete as contestants in recreations of classic formats of the past and present. The initial seven-episode run will be devoted to "The Price Is Right," "Let's Make a Deal," "Match Game" (featuring panelists Betty White and George Foreman), "Card Sharks," "Press Your Luck," "Beat the Clock" and "Family Feud" with Leslie Nielsen, Tim Meadows, Lance Bass, Kathy Najimy, Paige Davis and Adrienne Curry on board as participants. Additional guests are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. In addition, Lake has signed a development deal with "Marathon" producers FremantleMedia North America and Granada America to develop unscripted projects. Krasnow will also serve as an executive producer alongside Fremantle's Cecile Frot-Coutaz and Granada's Curt Northrup and Paul Jackson.

    I think this sounds like it will be really cool. Not a bad cast of celebrities, either. When it does premiere, I'll be watching.

    I'd rather see real people compete in these recreations, personally.

    Well you know, networks are riding the 'Celebrity' train right now. (ie. Celebs dancing, Celebs on skates, Celebs losing weight, etc.)

    Agreed and also the game show trend with the success of NBC's Deal or No Deal.

    I wouldn't they can have Battle of the Network Reality Stars. That's enough for me. But I do agree with having regular people play this game, I think it would probably be more interesting.
