How good are you at linking words? Game show network has brought back the classic game show "Chain Reaction". PHL17's Jason Lee spoke to the show's new host, Mike Catherwood.

Jason Lee:
Mike good morning. Tell us about Chain Reaction.

Mike Catherwood:
It's a wordplay game you know it's nothing too too crazy nothing too tricky. You try to connect words that make sense and make a chain of words hence the name.

Jason Lee:
This is the kind of game that we can kind of play along with at home correct?

Mike Catherwood:
Yeah in fact it's designed for it. I really love the fact that for the first time in my career I'm involved in something that my entire family can get behind, my father, my daughter, everyone can get around and play and enjoy and there's nothing like I said too heady about it it's just a lot of fun.

Jason Lee:
Since you started hosting the show what's it been like for you?

Mike Catherwood:
It's been awesome. It's been awesome. I can't believe I'm...coming from radio I'm not accustomed to be surrounded by A) so many good looking people and B) so many happy people. Everybody in television is so happy.

Jason Lee:
You and I have a lot in common. I've worked in radio myself so tell me which medium do you like better TV or radio?

Mike Catherwood:
You know I can't pick a favorite because there's so many advantages. I don't  have to tell you there's so many advantages to both. TV you know look there's more money there and radio you get a really intimate connection with your audience that I don't think translates in television, but I love them both you know just to be able to say I make a living in either been awesome.

Jason Lee:
Absolutely right and Mike lots of luck with the show. Tell us when and where we can watch it.

Mike Catherwood:
Thursday nights 9pm on the Game Show Network Jason thank you so much man.

Jason Lee:
Mike Catherwood we'll be watching in Philly. Thanks so much for joining us. We appreciate it. And Eye Opener continues.
