GSN Renews "Idiotest" For Second Season

Yesterday, GSN announced its second season renewal of their latest new original series, Idiotest. This marks the third first-year show the network has renewed in 2014 in addition to It Takes A Church and Skin Wars. Sixty-five episodes have been ordered for the upcoming season and comedian Ben Gleib will return as the show’s host and producer. Although I personally haven’t been keeping up with the ratings for the show, according to Deadline, the series is coming off of three straight weeks of ratings increases and its first season nearly doubled its time period average (+82%) among women 18-49 compared to last year. 

With the creation and second season renewal of Idiotest, GSN continues to prove why the network was has been as successful as it has been within the past couple of years: by creating a variety of great quality original programming, including developing two shows (The American Bible Challenge, The Chase) that has attracted the attention of the Daytime Emmy Awards committee a few months ago. I will be definitely be looking forward to Ben Gleib making more well-educated contestants look foolish in the next season of Idiotest, which will probably make its debut around late Spring 2015. If you have never seen (or heard of) this show before, today's your lucky day! Check out a full episode of the show in the video below.
