GSN Catches More Of Ribeiro's 21

When it comes to Catch 21, GSN favors 65.

The service ordered a 65-installment second season of the game show, hosted by Alfonso Ribeiro.
The show features Ribeiro -- best known for playing Carlton, Will Smith's cousin on NBC comedy The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air -- quizzing contestants who try to win cards without going over 21. In the final round, the player has to build 21 from an oversized deck, winning the $25,000 grand prize if they do.
The new season -- which begins on GSN on April 6 at 6:30 p.m., leading out from The Newlywed Game -- will feature a "power chip" enabling the holder to discard an unwanted card in the final round, thereby boosting the odds of winning.
"We're excited to bring this high-energy show back to viewers with the same great host and team of producers, but with more opportunity for big-time winners and a whole new look that invites the audience to join in on the fun," said GSN senior vice president of programming Kelly Goode in a statement. "One of the great things about this program is that fans of the show that want to get in on the action, either to compete for money like the show contestants or just to play for fun, can go online at any time."
