Scrabble was also airing before that, though- I seem to remember one of the Pyramids preceding it on the daily schedule on USA.

Last week, Dancing's highest charting last week was 104th out of 232 recorded programs. (Coincidentally, the 232nd place show was a Sunday afternoon Dancing. 52,000 viewers.) I think it says a lot when three of the five 11am airings of Super Password do better. In a comparison of recent acquisitions, the addition of Steve Harvey's Feud did very well for them, taking 6 of the top 10 spots in its second week.

But GSN said (on-screen) that it was "ALL NEW!"...wasn't that enough information for you?

Like you said, a lot of the stuff after that was pretty half-baked. I think things reduced to quarter-baked, if not raw, after the 2004 rebranding.
My favorite GSN original was I've Got a Secret. Such a great remake, a host and panel with great chemistry, nice retro looking set and a fun, lighthearted game. It's a shame it only lasted one season.
