* TheRemake: Done often to obscurities. The Woolery-hosted revival of ''Lingo'' was by far the best received, while ''Catch 21'' is considered a worthy ''Gambit'' revamp with minimal changes to what had been a winning format (along with being heralded as Creator/MerrillHeatter's return to TV after nearly 20 years). The Dylan Lane-hosted ''Chain Reaction'' returned the mental agility that was the Instant Reaction bonus game, but was tempered by clueless contestants and Lane's generally sucky hosting (Mike Catherwood's version is generally well received, with Catherwood being more genial). ''Extreme Gong'' and Bill Engvall's ''Lingo'', on the other hand...

''Whammy'' was considered a worthy successor to the original ''Press Your Luck'' despite needless format changes such as [[CoveredInGunge Double Whammies]] and the ill-conceived Big Bank round, and though he didn't hold a candle to Peter Tomarken, Todd Newton was still seen as a competent, enjoyable host.

In 2015, the network gained competition in the form of Buzzr, a new digital subchannel network run by Creator/FremantleMedia. Buzzr is airing the programs they own that are not part of GSN's lineup (barring of ''Series/MatchGame'', ''Series/CardSharks'', ''Series/PressYourLuck'', and ''Series/LetsMakeADeal'') and is currently in several markets with a planned nationwide rollout.

In August 2012, GSN began using "Game Show Network" under the logo in promos for ''The Pyramid'', which quickly spread to the credit crunches (amusingly, in a vertical style reminiscent of the original 1994-97 logo). In 2013, GSN began referring to itself explicitly in its promos as "Game Show Network" for the first time in nearly a decade.

The network officially shortened its name to "GSN" in 2004, but has referred to itself by its former moniker on several occasions since.

The current schedule is sometimes criticized by fans for relying too much on fairly recent material (''Series/DealOrNoDeal'', the Sherri Shepherd version of ''Series/TheNewlywedGame'', the Steve Harvey seasons of ''Family Feud'') and material that doesn't quite qualify as game shows (''High Stakes Poker'', ''Series/DancingWithTheStars'', ''Family Trade'').
