5th Season of Catholic Game Show to Air on CatholicTV

Starting in September 2009, CatholicTV will air the 5th season of its Catechetical game show “Wow!-The CatholicTV Challenge”.

Wow! The CatholicTV Challenge (Wow!) is a children’s game show that teaches viewers the Catholic faith. The show resembles the show Jeopardy!, yet has young contestants just like the show “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” Wow! is hosted by Father Robert Reed, a priest of the Archdiocese of Boston. Contestants are 3rd graders and are asked open-ended questions. Father Reed gives a brief explanation of the answer and occasional commentary. The show erupts with laughter and shouts of “Wow!” when contestants answer questions correctly. Each show has a Catholic theme such as “The Sacraments” or “The 10 Commandments”.

The new season will have shows centered around: the resurrection, the Gospels, the Roman Pontiff, The Anointing of the Sick, and others.

“Wow!-The CatholicTV Challenge” is viewable on CatholicTV where available each week at the following times (EST): 7:30 p.m. Mondays, 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesdays, 10:30 a.m. Wednesdays, 1 a.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Saturdays, and midnight and 9 a.m. Sundays. The show is also streamed live (simultaneously) at www.CatholicTV.com. Archived episodes are also viewable at the website (click here to view http://www.catholictv.org/shows/default.aspx?seriesID=137 ). Episodes can be seen full-screen and free of charge. CatholicTV is a non-profit corporation.
