For one hour, Foxworthy will grill contestants on their knowledge of the Bible, GSN — which once stood for Game Show Network — told advertisers Wednesday morning in Manhattan.
GSN said the questions will be “designed to acknowledge and celebrate the Bible’s continuing importance in contemporary life and culture.”
It appears contestants will be selected on the basis of their backstories, because GSN says contestants are going to share them with viewers at home and the studio audience.
“I am excited to be hosting a show about the best-selling book of all time,” Foxworthy, who already hosts GSN’s “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” said in Wednesday’s announcement.
“It will be interesting to find out what people really know, and an opportunity to present the Bible in a fun and entertaining way,” Foxworthy added.
I think the show will go a little something like this (turns around to put on a 70′s porn mustache)
If yewww think you saw Jesus in the maple syrup on your flapjacks… yewww might be a Bibleneck…

Obviously I think this is a tacky idea. Maybe if all the money went to charity?
