World Poker Tour Season X Airs Every Sunday at Midnight
Los Angeles (February 16, 2012) – Following the impressive 30% rise in household ratings last season, brand new episodes of World Poker Tour will now be broadcast on FOX in Boston for the first time ever starting February 19th. The show that revolutionized poker is scheduled to air every Sunday on WFXT FOX 25 at midnight.
Over the past year, fans gravitated en masse to the program’s innovative changes. As a result, each tournament on WPT® Season X will be featured in three separate episodes for an expanded run that showcases more poker, more excitement, and more behind the scenes footage.
With extended playdown coverage, fans will experience the complete story of the tournament leading up to the riveting final table. As the action moves off the felt, viewers will get an exclusive look into the lives of WPT’s cast in the brand new segment On the Road filmed by Joey Carson, executive producer of The Simple Life.
Poker Hall of Famer Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten will call the final table action for an amazing tenth year. The iconic co-hosts will be joined once again by Kimberly Lansing, the beautiful and charismatic WPT Anchor. Of course, the fabulous Royal Flush Girls will also be returning to the broadcast, much to the delight of their passionate fans. Raw Deal Analyst Tony Dunst will continue to challenge the pros and educate the amateurs with insightful commentary, while the hip segment WPT Ones to Watch features a new cast of young up-and-coming players.
