The new season of the World Poker Tour hits TV screens later this month with 33 hour-long episodes airing weekly on Fox Sports Networks.
The highest-rated poker show on FSN for the past two seasons, World Poker Tour is continuing to build on recent innovations.
”Viewers have responded very positively to the changes we’ve made in the show over the past two seasons,” said WPT President Adam Pliska.
“This year, we’re continuing to push the envelope with even more compelling improvements that complement what is turning out to be a record-breaking season with some of the greatest poker moments we’ve seen in the WPT’s television history.”
Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten continue to provide cornerstone commentary and will be joined once again by the Royal Flush Girls, roving anchor Kimberly Lansing and Raw Deal analyst Tony Dunst.
Fans can rest easy. The Royal Flush Girls are returning to television.
And the new season will feature a brand-new cast of rising young poker stars, dubbed the WPT’s Ones to Watch.
“We’re not content to rest on past accomplishments,” said WPT CEO Steve Heller.
“We are continually refining the World Poker Tour program and developing new ways to provide our viewers with the most compelling and entertaining poker show possible.”
New episodes of the World Poker Tour will air Sundays at 8pm and 11pm local time on FOX Sports Networks*
