Split Infinites

(The holiday season is here and you need to get down to Hobby Lobby today....before the elves take it away for good.)

VO: This is GSN The Know. The most informed and entertained blog in the United States of America. Now, from the WIlton-North building, here is the man about games, Pierre Kelly.

Me: And this is the Penultimate blog of GSN The Know. Our prep for Game Show Live! is mere weeks away. I was interviewed by every news outlet, share to everyone on social media and put up flyers all over Grimsborough. America, January 4th will be the date we will party! But let's get back to the action as we start with....

 The Starting Line.

America saw the preview of Divided, but who was the host?

Well,  here it is.

Yes, Mike Richards. He wanted back in the GSN frame after trying hard with Pyramid in 2012 before Michael Strahan taught the EP of Price and LMAD a lesson in how it's done this year on ABC. Now he's back to gain his revenge on a short-lived UK show. In Fact, GSN did a sneak peek before the actual January premiere. I'll give you the link to click for yourself.....

There. The preview shows 4 instead of 3 and there is big money ahead, up to $100,000 for them to split......or nada if you decide way too long. Will this work in 2017? You'll soon find out.

One segment that won't go away come the renovation in January is our Yay & Yawn of November.

The Yay: Divided Sneak Peek. I wish it would've been a yawn had it been for the bickering.

The yawn: GSNN BlogSpot. Scott Rahner decides to close up shop. For good.

What are the 5 worst things to a GSN fan? I'll tell you about about a moment.

(song fades out)

(Quick fade out)

As we promised you the 5 worst things a GSN fan can experience and here it is.

Ever wonder what it's like to turn on GSN and think to yourself: Huh? Well, here are the 5 things you experience the network in a worst way.

1. Too Much Feud

You see it every day. Karn in the noonday, Harvey at night, Dawson anc Combs keep rolling over in their graves and it's 100 times per week. Why is GSN making money off of it? Well....they like Harvey. Because.....they make big ratings.

2. Not enough variety to go around.

It used to be all classics and a little modern stuff back then, but now it's all modern and not enough classics. So why can't you add in classics on evenings? It'll make a dead graveyard of all sorts.

3. They want younger viewers

They want people thinking tey want to see classics for older viewers, but younger people want to see stuff past 2001 and beyond. Look at how the cable landscape is changing. They want to tweak the way we watch on TV.

4. Marathons that'll make you yawn.

GSN used to air a Feast of old school classics back then, but not anymore. All they air is whatever is on the schedule. It's like wet paper towels thrown up at the celiing.....or spitwads if you can call it that.

5. Switch to Buzzr

Yes, Buzzr. All the classics thrown in a 24-7-365 loop. As long as they get new episodes. Good luck with it.

Now the 2nd intermission presented by Another person that will not go away is Christa Nannos as she closes out Nan-November.


And let's turn on the 3rd period.

I wanted to do something fun. I asked everyone to finish this sentence.....

GSN Isn't GSN without.....what?

Ben Masters fires with Tic Tac Dough. That, I agree with along with Joker's Wild.

David Downs, my frenemy says Steve Harvey & reality shows. Really? REALLY??!!!!

Ben fires back With Card Sharks. Of course.

Jimmy Souders goes with Press Your Luck. Why not?

James Bamberg and Tood Wacha says real classic game shows. Yes, real classic game shows, not the phony "Sob story, wait until after the commercial for the result" game shows, the vintage ones.

Even Tommie Jessie agrees too.

Randy Hansen gets the Joker's Wild, of course.

Ryan Eaton and James Jagiello gets TPIR. We all miss the older ones.

Mark Stowers goes with The Whammy from Press your Luck, better than any other game show villain.

Finally, Christian Dixie goes with Classic Wheel, the way we grew up as kids.

Thanks guys for all your help.


Time to go everyone, the final blog before the awards show and the renovation will be next week. No need to get your Kleenex tissues for it.

Don't forget to email me at,, Pierre Jason Kelly on FB and @Johnny_Arcade on twitter. Also I'm on Snapchat as MisterGSN and Instagram as Mister_WCW. Let's have Anthony Hardy of Captain's World get into the holiday spirit. Play on, playas.

A host Divided

(Thanksgiving may be on the horizon, but Hobby Lobby gives you all the decorations for Christmas....god luck surviving Black Friday.)

VO: This is GSN The Know. The most informed and entertained blog in the United States of America. Now, from the WIlton-North building, here is the man about games, Pierre Kelly.

Me: Hey kids and kidettes, we're getting so close to Game Show Live! in January. Our studio will be a cross between Sqrambled Scuares and the long-running SNL skit Weekend Update. Prepare yourselves for that. In the meantime, let's talk GSN starting with....

 The Starting Line.

 It's time for another installment of....

Let's ask the Know-It-all. Someone here who is a landlord for over 25 years at Bud Adams Apartments wants to know who should host Divided?

Well, landlord who keeps everyone's rent paid, so that the rats would keep us out of here, I would say Mike Catherwood. Why? He did what Dylan Lane didn't and that is keep the spirit of Chain Reaction alive. He needs to host this one over Mike Richards who changed Price and Deal. Why not him?

(song stops)

Stay right where you are. We got the nominees for the Know-It-All Awards, and I can't tell you until after this break. Why? Because I want to and it's my blog, so talk amongst yourselves while you watch this.

(Quick fade out)

Oh hi, We were just preparing for the nominees....that'll be momentarily, but first.................

House Cleaning.

Wheel of Fortune expands to four airings 11:00 AM-1:00 PM. The Chase takes over the 4:00 PM slot. Whammy pops up at 10:00 AM, between Press Your Luck and 25K Pyramid.

You know why? Because you get 2 hours of spinning and winning. The Beast will get its own weekday slot in afternoons and Whammy will be in between 2 classics at 9 CST. Also....

Catherwood Chain Reaction will get the 3:30 PM slot on weekdays, as GSN's Pyramid drops off the schedule.

So adios, 2012 Pyramid, it was nice to know you.

(song stops)

If you're wondering why Window Warriors has premiered, let me give you a review Haiku for you....


(song stops)

One bit of news for you: Monday through Friday December 19-30, GSN will run What's My Line and I've Got a Secret in the 3:00 AM hour. It's the dreaded holiday B&W overnight stunt. Stay up....and stay nostalgic baby!

Now the 2nd intermission presented by Christa Nannos, our resident soda girl had a hard life the week after the election. She voted for Hillary, but Donald Trump got the presidency. So she sang this song to remind us of the tough times ahead.

Guess what that theme means? It's time for the nominees for the GTK Know-It-ALL Awards. The very last one before we transition to Game Show Live! First off....

BEST Classic
Press Your Luck
The $25,000 Pyramid
Card Sharks

(song stops)

Don't forget to email me at,, Pierre Jason Kelly on FB and @Johnny_Arcade on twitter. Also I'm on Snapchat as MisterGSN and Instagram as Mister_WCW. Now to end it for Thanksgiving, here's Kristin & Danny rapping about it. Play on, playas.

24 divided by 4 (and 20 Blackbirds) Equals.....

(Wanna make your Thanksgiving more interesting? Visit a Hobby Lobby today. Your family & Friends will thank you for it.)

VO: This is GSN The Know. The most informed and entertained blog in the United States of America. Now, from the WIlton-North building, here is the man about games, Pierre Kelly.

Me: We have a whole good show for you, because later on in the blog, something is about to change, but first....

 The Starting Line.

Divided was a short lived UK entity and GSN decided to make a date for the program. According too Screener, November 25th is the date for Divided. That's Black Friday. The one day after Thanksgiving where people start shopping like crazy. It'll be a team of 3 answering questions and dividing the cash. We hope it'll be a hit like The Chase once was. But it'll be a sneak preview. The real premiere comes in January of next year.

Hang on folks, the reactions to GSNN BlogSpot's page is just minutes away, so don't you dare click that dreaded red X out of here.

(song fades out)

(Quick fade out)
We're getting so close to that big announcement that'll shock you to your knees, but first, we talk about the reactions to GSNN's BlogSpot page gone. Taking out my poetry book....

Hey, I just met you...
And this is crazy....
So here's my Airbrush Magic....
Comment it, maybe?

We start off with Darla Fanbridge with this....

"It's sad that Game Show Network News is shut down. This proves the Scott was doing something wrong."
That was the 2nd season of Hellevator that got him into hot water. Really hotter water. One commenter said....
"Good riddance. He was the laughingstock of the game show community, and most of the hits on his page were of him simply hitting F5.

He sure went to a lot of trouble to make fake names to make it look like he had lots of "visitors" when they were all him anyway."
See there? But that big announcement happens later on.
After 5 seasons, Steve Harvey's talk show is coming to an end. According to Deadline, Harvey has decided to end his talk show Steve Harvey after five seasons and more than 500 episodes in May 2017 in order to focus on producing a brand new talk show, which Real 98.7 is speculating could potentially be Harvey’s new venture with Tamar, The Tamar Braxton Show.
The site revealed this week that Steve would be putting an end to Steve Harvey next year in order to team up with NBCUniversal Domestic Television and IMG to create a brand new daily syndicated show, which is currently expected to premiere in September 2017 and will film in Los Angeles, where both Harvey and Braxton live.
Steve will still do his radio show and Family Feud in Los Angeles.
 GSN will burn off some new eps of Winsanity on Saturday, November 26.  According to ScreenerTV, they'll burn off the remaining programs of the Donald Faison show.
Now the 2nd intermission presented by Here's our Soda Girl Christa Nannos doing a little wig necessary.

Alright kids, Here comes that announcement you've all waited for. Now don't freak out, don't get mad or don't get upset. We are not going anywhere, but it'll change the way you look at game shows forever. I called a pre-blog meeting in the newsroom and it's all finally revealed. On January 4th, GSN The Know will be no more. In its place will be in form of a makeover and renovation.....

Yes, Game Show Live. We are breaking the barriers beyond GSN and knowing you more than that 3 letter network that gives you too much Feud per day and not enough classics in the morning. We've upgraded from a small operation to a big time cosmic game show party and you are on the guest list. Now if you're wondering why I made the logo. Let me break it down for you.

G-Go, the shortest game show title and short lived 1983 show.
A-Super Password
M-Match Game (The 1973-78 years)
S-Sqrambled Scuares-My favorite as of now, and perhaps yours too.
H-Match Game (1978-1982 and 2016)
O-Plinko Chip

Now, we've upgraded the newsroom into a task force of writers and editors  to keep the new system going with breaking news stories and fresher new content GTK could copy it with a fax machine. As far as the off-topic silliness is concerned......well.....they're still here, but we have fresh new faces to join the fray. Christa Nannos, who you saw earlier decided to cut back on the sodas next year. Good move. So she'll become the bonus round blond bombshell. A new face you'll see is Carly Smashes Ivory alias Carly Ann Worden. I saw her videos and she is amazing. She will be the composing creature from the Hal Hidey School of Prize Music. Back in October, you saw Kristin & Danny perform a Halloween lip sync video. Because of that, they'll be the Lipsync Idiotesters. Madi2TheMax has been on this blog a few times, so she'll be the Match Game Mistress of Impressionism because of her impression videos and sped-up renditions of theme somgs to avoid copyright issues. Robyn Cage is a desert native, so being the Game Show gypsy queen is to keep her title intact. Next is Alyse Black. She may be a real estate agent, but she's now a Super Password soul sister. Lindsey Stirling has done her appreciation month every February every year, so she's a Family Feud fiddler. And finally, Ashley Koehler from my hometown has so far honed her whistling skills, so she's the whistling wizard of the TPIR Big Wheel.

Also, some changes to the calendar as well as the blog's cosmetic changes. March will be Madi2TheMax-imum March Madness, May will be the class of 2007, August will be Acoustically Alyse in August...nice alliterative name.....September will be Carly Smashes September and December will be the inaugural Livewire awards.

And all this will take place at the Stan Lee Plaza, a one floor center in the Maple Heights area to get away from the city traffic in the suburbs. We brought out the 2 stores to buy space next to a board game store and Cosmic's Space Store. From outside a big window of my soon-to-be office, you'll see the TPC at Stan Lee miniature golf course. That's where the Marvel -Stan Lee Mini-golf course is and it will be our downtime once we break for lunch or school. Lots of classic arcade machines and some you've seen at a local Dave & Buster's, plus all the fixings. That's right across from Shira Lazar Podcast Center. Lots of stars work there. So we're moving from a spiffy building in an office space into a medium sized building space on Ally Maque road. And on January 4th, The blog that knows GSN will become a blog that's beyond GSN, Buzzr and more. Get lit!

And.....done. Today's program is presented by Chilli's. Veterans eat free with a Miltary long as the managers know you're actually not.

Don't forget to email me at,, Pierre Jason Kelly on FB and @Johnny_Arcade on twitter. Also I'm on Snapchat as MisterGSN and Instagram as Mister_WCW. And in honor of Leonard Cohen passing away, Robyn Cage is going to take us out with his signature hit. Play on, playas.
