Game shows were a mainstay of daytime TV for decades before the time slots were grabbed up by court shows, talk shows and table talk shows. But the format lives on through streaming services and the aggregators that package them up for free.
XUMO announced the launch of its second annual Game Show Week, running May 16th through May 22nd. Back again this year by popular demand, Game Show Week spotlights XUMO’s new and growing library of best loved game show entertainment, offering hundreds of episodes from some of the most popular shows ever produced. Alongside favorites such as Deal or No Deal, among others, XUMO is adding five new channels, including Fear Factor, The Price is Right, Supermarket Sweep, Buzzer, and Wipeout Xtra.
“Game show entertainment is a genre not all FAST services have a lot of, but it is one of our fastest growing categories in terms of hours consumed. With our annual Game Show Week, we’re turning the spotlight on this popular genre with even more newly launched channels and beloved game shows that will bring out the friendly competitor in us all,” stated Fern Feistel, SVP marketing and content operations at XUMO. “Whether you play along at home, or lean back and enjoy this classic programming, Game Show Week appeals to the widest cross section of viewers and is back again this year by popular demand.”
