ATLANTA – UP, America’s favorite channel for uplifting family entertainment, announced today that it has acquired the first two seasons of ratings hit “The
American Bible Challenge.” “The American Bible Challenge” will be UP’s first game show and will premiere on Thursday, July 25 at 9 p.m. EDT.

UP has acquired the first two seasons of the series, hosted by comedian Jeff Foxworthy (@foxoutdoors), for a total of 18 episodes. In the program’s second
