Vidgame block for GSN

'Sauce,' 'Gamer TV' to be watched in over 50 mil homes

Game Show Network will launch a two-hour block of videogame programming in the fall anchored by two newsmag-style series, “Game Sauce” and “Gamer TV.”

Pair of skeins, produced by U.K.-based Gamer.tv Limited, are moving over to GSN from their current home on digital net G4.

Block, which will air from 2-4 p.m. Thursdays, with repeat airings Saturday and Sunday, reps just one of many strides the net has made to expand its traditional gamer-driven makeup. Last month cabler announced its Saturday night offbeat games and sports block “Games Across America,” set to bow in late summer.

“We want to be all things games. We feel like we started out as the Game Show Network, but we have the opportunity to do everything from casino games to board games to reality games,” net prexy Rich Cronin said. “It’s time for us to expand into other genres.”

Two original episodes of “Game Sauce” and one of half-hour skein “Gamer TV” will cement the block, briefing viewers on the latest in vidgame releases, trends and game-playing strategy.

Shows will be wrapped with a half-hour’s worth of hosted interstitials and shortform programming, which Cronin said will build on GSN’s success with product placement.

GSN is currently available in more than 51 million homes.
