Default The First Annual The Game Show Awards on GSN on 6/6/2009

GSN MAKES TELEVISION HISTORY WITH FIRST GAME SHOW AWARDS, PREMIERING JUNE 6

A Different Kind of Awards Show, With Nominees Running the Gamut from Drew Carey, Alex Trebek and the Briefcase Models to Turtle Wax, Rice-A-Roni and The Gong from 'The Gong Show'

Special Tributes to Bob Barker, Mark Goodson and Monty Hall

(Santa Monica, CA) -- April 15, 2009 GSN announced today that it will make television history with THE GAME SHOW AWARDS - the very first awards show exclusively aimed at celebrating excellence in the genre of games. The two and a half-hour, star-studded extravaganza will premiere on June 6, 2009, at 8PM ET/7PM CT only on GSN, and will honor classic and contemporary game shows, with special tributes to pioneers Bob Barker ("The Price is Right"), legendary game show producer Mark Goodson, and host Monty Hall ("Let's Make a Deal"). In keeping with the participatory nature of game shows and GSN's programming, fans will be able to vote for their favorite nominees online at GSN.com in several categories, including best/favorite host, model, announcer, contestant, catch phrase, sound effect and others.

"This will be a different kind of awards showand the first-ever awards show dedicated exclusively to the world of game shows," said Kelly Goode, GSN's Senior Vice President of Programming. "THE GAME SHOW AWARDS will be a lighthearted, humorous homage to the talented people who make game shows a perennial favorite. We will also include exciting participatory elements that offer our at-home fans and in-studio audience the chance to play a role in the show."

As part of the event, GSN will pay tribute to three individuals who have helped make the beloved genre a staple of popular culture: long-time "The Price is Right" host Bob Barker; the legendary late game show producer Mark Goodson ("Match Game," "Password," "Family Feud"); and "Let's Make A Deal" host Monty Hall, with each receiving special tributes for his contributions to the game show industry.

Awards categories run the gamut from the de rigeur (Best Game Show, Best Game Show Host, Favorite Classic Game Show) to the tongue-in-cheek (Favorite Game Show Sound Effect, Most Outrageous Game Show Contestant, Favorite Parting Gift). Non-traditional game shows also get their due (Best Reality Competition Show, Favorite Dating or Relationship Show), as do celebrity guests (Favorite Celebrity Player, Favorite Celebrity Team). Nominees include game show stalwarts such as Jeopardy!, The Price is Right, Wheel of Fortune, Hollywood Squares, Match Game, Name that Tune, The Newlywed Game, Pat Sajak, Vanna White, Howie Mandel, Betty White and Regis Philbin, as well as unexpected nominees, including Neil Patrick Harris, Serena Williams, the cast of "The Office," Rice-A-Roni, Turtle Wax, the "Barking Contestant," and the gong from "The Gong Show." A complete list of the awards categories and nominees follows below.

As with much of GSN's original programming, THE GAME SHOW AWARDS will deliver a participatory experience for both at-home fans and those in the studio audience. Prior to the June 6 premiere, viewers will have the opportunity to visit GSN.com to vote for their favorite nominees in more than a dozen award categories. In addition, during the premiere telecast, at-home viewers will be encouraged to go online, where they can answer award show-related trivia for the chance to win cash and other exciting prizes.

The show's studio audiencecomprised of celebrities and fans who are passionate about game shows and gameswill have the chance to win prizes during the show by playing familiar games, both on stage and in the aisles. Some of the award recipients will also be included in the game play by being given the opportunity to relinquish their awards to play games for more lucrative prizes.

In addition to the award presentations and tributes, THE GAME SHOW AWARDS will highlight famous game-show bloopers, spoofs and other funny moments from the game show canon.

One lucky consumer will also win the "Game Show Awards Sweepstakes," which includes a trip for two to Los Angeles, two nights' accommodations, and VIP tickets to THE GAME SHOW AWARDS ceremony. The winner and his/her guest will walk the red carpet and rub elbows with the stars, as well as enjoy the Hollywood lifestyle with car service and spending money. Consumers have a chance to win by going to GSN.com/Live and playing "GSN Live" featured online games for up to 15 free entries per day. The winner will be drawn on "GSN Live" on or about April 27.*

THE GAME SHOW AWARDS will be held at the historic Wilshire Theatresoon to be Saban Theatrelocated in Beverly Hills, CA and will be produced by award show veteran and Emmy Award Winner Michael Levitt. A former executive producer of "Hollywood Squares," Levitt's credits include "The TV Land Awards," "The Billboard Music Awards," "The Teen Choice Awards," "The Blockbuster Awards," "The World Music Awards," "The Scream Awards" and "The VH1/Vogue Fashion Awards."
