The Bible is the biggest selling book ever. So it’s appropriate that GSN has netted its biggest original series ever with “The American Bible Challenge,” hosted by Alpharetta’s own Jeff Foxworthy.

The show has been naturally renewed for a second season though the network has only asked for nine more episodes, a rather modest pick up considering the first season was nine episodes. Most successful shows on cable get more episodes their sophomore season.

A GSN spokeswoman said the show was structured in a tournament style that worked includes a semi-final and final round. And it’s weekly, not a daily show.

The finale of this year’s season is October 18. The local team Georgia Grace Girls are in this week’s semifinals airing October 11.

The series, which features questions based on the Bible, opened at 1.7 million viewers on August 23, a huge figure for GSN. The spokeswaomn over an entire week, the show drew an average 3.5 million viewers.

For those who missed the show, it’s structured with three teams of three competing to win money for their appointed charity.
