Jeff Foxworthy’s Show Proves Faith Programming Works

foxworthyWORD-ThumbWe need to laugh more as people of faith said host Jeff Foxworthy of “The American Bible Challenge” and who am I to argue with this advice? He’s still a comedian and a child at heart.

“I am a comedian, and even though faith is a big part of my life, sometimes things just pop out of my mouth,” he laughed. “It’s kind of like an old person where there’s not really a filter. There have been moments when I started saying something and I go “I don’t know if I should say this or not.” But humor is a very big part of it and I often argued one of our failures as people of faith is a lot of us don’t have a lot of joy.”

The smash hit on Game Show Network kicks off on May 22nd heading into its third season and is expected to embrace new colorful characters, laughs, and shows faith programming can succeed on secular networks. Foxworthy’s show is a top performer.

That doesn’t surprise this Georgia boy.

“You’re seeing more biblical movies. Maybe I’m lucky where I live you see faith pretty visible in the deep the South,” Foxworthy said. “In LA you don’t necessarily see that many billboards Do you need Jesus?”

Maybe not, people in general are familiar with the Bible, and Foxworthy believes this is the reason for the show’s success.

“It’s kind of like “Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader?” Everybody can answer the first grade questions and then it gets tougher as it goes along.”

Foxworthy, who has volunteered at a homeless shelter for years said he took the job with the stipulation that the winners don’t keep the money, but donate it to their favorite charity.

“Faith just talked about gets boring pretty quickly, but when you can see it in people’s lives and you can see it changing other people’s lives, then to me, it gets interesting.”

You can expect more personal stories from the contestants and, yes, the unexpected. I mean it is Jeff Foxworthy, so catch him on GSN this season.
