A total of 1.7 million viewers watched the game show Thursday (Aug. 23), in which host Jeff Foxworthy asks Bible questions of three teams who play for their favorite charities. The show also features a gospel choir.

The program airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. Eastern/Pacific.

"The best-selling book of all time is now GSN's most viewed program of all time, which proves that consumers are yearning for fun, family-friendly entertainment," said Amy Introcaso-Davis, GSN's executive vice president of programming and development. "We are incredibly proud of this show and are happy that it connected with so many viewers."

The game show's debut also helped GSN set a network record for total viewers for a night (2.3 million).

Baptist Press movie/television reviewer Phil Boatwright called American Bible Challenge the best game show he's seen since "Jeopardy."

GSN (Game Show Network) is found on cable and satellite systems nationwide. On Dish Network, it's channel 116, and on DirectTV, it's 233.
