GSN, the network for games, is proud to announce the addition of a fourth night and a move to midnight for PLAYMANIA, the successful live participation game show series. Starting Thursday, August 24, PLAYMANIA will air Thursday through Sunday (12:00-2:00 AM ET/9:00-11:00 PM PT); it was announced today by Rich Cronin, president and CEO of GSN.
The addition of Sunday nights falls on the same evening as television’s Emmy® Awards show, so PLAYMANIA will pay homage to the television world all weekend with TV-related games, brand new features and exclusive award night fun, including a visit from STARFACE’S Danny Bonaduce on Sunday.
As part of its tribute to television, PLAYMANIA will host it’s very own award ceremony called “The PlayMes.” The initial four PlayMe categories will be “Scariest TV Dad,” “Favorite TV Hunk,” “Loveliest British Host on US TV” and “Best TV Show in the World Ever.”
In addition, “PlayManiacs” will get the chance to win big money when PLAYMANIA ups the ante with entertainment-themed games with substantially increased prizing.
PLAYMANIA is a live interactive game show where viewers become contestants, playing a multitude of interactive word games, number games and puzzles. Hosted by LINGO co-host and former Miss USA Shandi Finnessey, and by British QUIZNATION star Mel Peachey, PLAYMANIA gives viewers the opportunity to compete for cash and prizes up to $5,000 by text messaging or going online to gsn.com.
