Will High Stakes Poker return to TV? Someone associated with producer Poker PROductions stated a while back that another season hasn't been ordered yet, but a decision would be made by GSN after the World Poker Tour premiered. We'll soon see how the shows' ratings compare. Some industry observers believe that the World Poker Tour will produce higher ratings than HSP. Additionally, the GSN executive that brought in High Stakes Poker and the World Poker Tour was removed amid declining ratings last year; and GSN appears to be a poor demographic match for poker compared to ESPN or Fox Sports.
