Television cable network founded in 1994, dedicated to the GameShow genre. In particular, Game Show Network was founded to air reruns of classic TV game shows from the 1950s onward. Starting in the late 1990s, the network began creating its own, starting with live call-in programs and eventually branching out into original formats and revivals of obscure formats.

At first, the network's rerun lineup ran the gamut from [[MarkGoodson Goodson-Todman]] stalwarts such as ''ThePriceIsRight'', ''{{Password}}'', ''FamilyFeud'', and ''MatchGame'' to other familiar programs owned by Sony (such as ''{{Pyramid}}'', ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'', ''WheelOfFortune'', ''TicTacDough'', ''TheNewlywedGame'', and ''TheJokersWild''). Over time, the lineup has undergone countless changes, thanks in no small part to some degree of NetworkDecay.

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

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).

!!Original GSN programming, counting revivals of existing formats:

* Club A.M. (and its successor, GSN Live)
* {{Cram}}
* DJ Games

* Series/FriendOrFoe?
* [[TheGongShow Extreme Gong]]
* Grand Slam (US debut of a British format)

%%[Note: while network pages generally don't have examples, there's really no other way to get these points across.]%%
!!This network provides examples of:
* AdBumpers: They occasionally do ones themed to both reruns of old shows, and to their original works.
* AprilFoolsDay: In 2003, the hosts of the network's original shows at the time traded places, except for Chuck Woolery who stayed with ''Lingo''. That day's ''Lingo'' featured four of the hosts playing a charity game against each other, with remaining host [[Series/{{Whammy}} Todd Newton]] serving as announcer/comic relief. [[note]](Also airing that day was a 1984 episode of ''The Newlywed Game'' hosted by Jim Lange.)[[/note]]
* CreditsPushback: Originally nonexistent. Until about 2002, the only thing Game Show Network did during the credits was a brief, unobtrusive voiceover for other network programming that echoed those of the classic games and was typically placed over the "coming up" voiceovers of the original episode.
** From about 2002-04, the credits were horizontally crunched for a brief promo, with the show on the right side. Later crunches had both show and promo in square boxes, but everything was still legible.
** Since the change to GSN, the crunches have become annoying to the point of illegibility, taking up about 90% of the screen and moving on to the next show when the promos conclude, cutting off the {{Vanity Plate}}s on most shows and almost always nullifying the fee plugs read by TheAnnouncer (though those, strangely, are still closed-captioned).
** They at least have the decency not to crunch ''LetsMakeADeal'' (since Monty Hall made mini-deals with the audience throughout the credits) or the ''BlackAndWhiteOvernite'' shows.
* 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 and ''Chain Reaction'' returned the mental agility that was the Instant Reaction bonus game. ''Extreme Gong'' and Bill Engvall's ''Lingo'', on the other hand...

Two contestants answer questions about game shows, with the first letter of each answer going into a puzzle. The first contestant to solve the puzzle wins the solution, which is a prize. Simple, but dumb contestants and technical problems plagued this segment. Howie Mandel is arguably at his best here.
** #1: Who was the first host of the classic game show ''Let's Make A Deal''? The female got this one easily Monty Hall.
** #2: What Bob was the original host of ''The Newlywed Game''? No response.
-->'''Howie Mandel''': You came to the ''Game Show Awards'' and you know nothing about them. ... Do either of you know what letter would go up there with the answer "Eubanks"?\\
'''Male Contestant''' (''after trying to buzz-in''): U.\\
'''Howie''': "U" know nothing!
** Howie then asked the players if either knew the puzzle solution, forgetting that a correct answer had to be given first.
-->'''Howie''': Voices from the back going (''deep voice'') "NO!"
** #3: What reality competition TV show is hosted by Jeff Probst? No response, despite the fact that the previous (unaired) question was "Who is the host of ''Survivor''?"
-->'''Howie''': Do either of you have a television?
** And then the "S" refused to appear on the board...
-->'''Howie''': This is a well-oiled machine. ... You don't think Vanna does much, it's ''so'' tough without her. ... I feel very alone. With all this talent sitting here they chose the one guy who goes "Open your case." ... Does [the "S"] go up there? Do I wait for it? Do I move on? I'm smiling on the outside, but inside [[BringMyBrownPants I'm shitting myself]].
** #4: Who is the announcer on tonight's show? '''No response!''' [[hottip:*:(Rich Fields.)]]
-->'''Howie''': I think I'm gonna win!
** #5: In the [[Creator/{{NBC}} primetime]] version of [[DealOrNoDeal my show]], how many cases are there at the beginning of the game? Female contestant buzzes-in, says..."22."
** #6: What classic game show had players trying to remember where matching prizes were located on a board? Female contestant buzzes-in, says......"''{{Concentration}}''", a show that hasn't been on the air in '''''15 years!''''' (Causing, as you may expect, a stunned reply from the audience and Howie.)
** With only Os not showing, she gets the answer of "Motor Scooter" and puts this game out of its misery.
* MissingEpisode: Some episodes of ''MatchGame'' and ''TheHollywoodSquares'' were taken out of rerun packages because they contained racial slurs. At least one ''Match Game'' episode was pulled because it had tape errors, and still more are unaired by the network due to failed celebrity clearances.
