Poker Night in America to Air on CBS Sports Network

by | Published: Sunday, June 22nd, 2014

In a week full of poker deals, another one has just been announced. Poker Night in America announced an agreement with CBS Sports Network on Thursday, June 19, that will see the new and exciting poker television show broadcast to a national audience. Beginning on June 29, the show is scheduled to run for 26 consecutive weeks at 10 PM ET (7 PM PT) every Sunday night.

“We’re making poker fun again — that’s our real goal,” said Todd Anderson, the creator of the show and president, in a press release. “We think poker players and fans have been looking for something new and fresh for a long time. We believe Poker Night in America will soon become must-see television for all serious players and fans. Our tag-ling says it all, ‘bringing personality back to poker.’”

Poker Night in America has held four events so far. The first was at the Turning Stone in Verona, NY, which was followed by the second event at Peppermill Reno in Reno, NV. The third event was held at the Rivers Casino Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh, PA at the end of 2014 while the fourth and so far latest event was held at Maryland Live! Casino in Hanover, MD earlier this year. Poker Night in America will be returning to this last venue at the end of July.

Anderson, with his company Rush Street Productions, created the idea for Poker Night in America in mid-2013 as a one-of-a-kind poker experience emphasizing and bringing out the fun, variety, entertainment, and interesting aspects of poker.
