Wondering what to watch on GSN? Game shows have been a staple of the airwaves since the dawn of television, so it's no wonder there are still so many currently airing programs that fall under the umbrella of the genre. If you love playing along with contestants as they try to solve puzzles, answer questions, or decipher clues, this list of GSN programs should help you find the right show for you! 

Some GSN series definitely fall under the guilty pleasure category. Jerry Springer - notorious for his intentionally trashy programming - hosts the GSN original Baggage. In this dating show, contestants reveal their biggest secrets to prospective romantic matches. If you want something a little more intellectually stimulating, you can try logic shows like Chain Reaction or trivia programs like Cash Cab. Not all current shows on GSN are game shows, however. The documentary Cover Story tells the true story of a man who rigged the lottery and ended up in prison. Other GSN shows on now include The Chase, Family Feud, and Card Sharks
