'The Chase' Was a Game Show Network Show for Years Ahead of Its ABC Primetime Debut

ABC is debuting the primetime version of the game show The Chase tonight (January 7) and what you might not know is that this show has been around for years!

The Chase, which is an adaptation of a British quiz show, premiered on Game Show Network back in 2013.

The original American version of the show was hosted by Brooke Burns and featured Mark Labbett, who was nicknamed The Beast, as the show’s “chaser.” The show has been nominated at the Daytime Emmy Awards three times.

The Chase is a heart-racing quiz show where three competitors must pit their wits and face off against the Chaser, a ruthless quiz genius determined to stop them from winning cash prizes. Each hour-long episode is a fast-paced battle of brain power, where contestants are challenged to think faster than they ever thought possible to answer up to 166 questions across all topics.

In the ABC primetime version of The Chase, Jeopardy‘s James Holzhauer, Ken Jennings, and Brad Rutter take turns serving as the Chaser while The View‘s Sara Haines is the host.

To once again be a part of the dialogue where I can share, discuss and disagree alongside these powerful and strong women is a tremendous honor. I feel very lucky,” she said in a statement.

Season 24 will premiere with the majority of the co-hosts – Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and Meghan McCain – appearing from home amid the pandemic, with Sara broadcasting from the show’s NYC studio.

Guests in the upcoming season include Michael Cohen, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, Jane Fonda, Robin Roberts, former Ohio Governor John Kasich, Eva Longoria, Gabrielle Union, Pete and Chasten Buttigieg, Brian Stelter, Janelle Monáe and Gabourey Sidibe, Evan Rachel Wood and Chelsea Clinton.

The show, which is hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer, is reportedly being replaced with GMA 3: What You Need to Know.

The show was originally taken off the air back in March and replaced with Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report that was “initially supposed to be a two-week experiment,” but ended up doing “really well,” according to a source.

“We’re proud of our teams at SSK and GMA3 and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead,” a spokesperson said.

ABC has yet to announce that the show is officially over, however.

“It’s unfortunate, but the hope is that they’ll be a big part of [GMA 3] down the road. Everyone was feeling good about their show. It was nominated for three Daytime Emmys. It finally found its rhythm. Ratings were stabilized and were starting to tick up when they went off-air,” an insider told Page Six.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show is also facing rumors that it may not return: here’s the latest update.
