Overtime #30: The Buzz....before the buzz

VO: This is Overtime. More about the network you know & trust. Here now Pierre Kelly.

Me: It's about time......for Overtime. Let's get it going.

Next week will be Buzzr's 1st anniversary, but before the Buzzr chanel happened.....

It had a Youtube digital channel itself. That's where the Buzz started.

The Beginning:

It was a cheap way to start using a small budget.

Slowly, but surely, The middle:

It all upgraded to a set in Youtube space LA.

More of the same variety than it  was in a small studio. Door3 should've learned when to actually make a show in a studio after they've learned that Trisha Paytas was fired. We told you that earlier in March. Unlike Door3, it had....

The End:

Youtubers took over just like Door3 did in its early stages. Like....


Apparently, Fremantle couldn't afford a 4th season for obvious reasons. That's because the Buzzr TV channel was already growing slowly and the Buzzr digital channel would stop by January.  Luckily, the recent ones garnered more views giving all Door3 subs a reason to jump over from a channel that was once too racy to a channel that is less racy. See there?

It's time to go everyone. Let's end with Anastasia Washington and a Disney song in honor of the upcoming Memorial Day TV movie marathon on the Disney Channel. Catch you next month and play on, playas.

Once Upon a Time, 5 letters ago....

(Memorial day weekend is looming, so get Fandango and when you want to wait for the barbeque food to be grilled Memorial Day, use FandangoNOW. Watch movies and TV shows for one low price all on your mobile device. Isn't that a good way to spend a weekend?)

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:  Hi. This is Pierre Kelly, alias Dr. Feelgood, and like the Motley Crue song, I'm the one that makes you feel alright. I do all the doctoring of GSN daytime & nighttime, and have an office with a newsroom and a studio on everything that says take that other game show blogs. I make housecalls when people don't have cable so that they can understand what the meaning of GSN is and would like to meet on the front porch and invade your house with food.....if I feel hungry. I specialize in GSN and only GSN and have dealt so many cases lucky enough to have my own crime drama show. L&O is calling. You can afford to expect what's there on the channel. Every other channel: Out of place. Our blogger is hotter than the sun or the planet Mars and can strip the remote out of your hands if you change it to something else other than GSN. So let's get your prescription filled, because I'm out of the car with your first batch known as......

 The Starting Line.

When Woolery Lingo replaced Whammy! on mid-mornings recently, fans were thrilled to see it back, but I want you to click on this link first:,28441.0.html

Most people think it's not the best Lingo and even though it involved money....

The 1987 version actually started it off with Michael Reagan hosting. Ralph Andrews actually invented the game and used a "No LIngo" round as a bonus for teams to not fill out a lingo hence what the bonus round said. However, it is similar to the Woolery version and the later 2011 version with clues that sound dirty.....but aren't. So either version of Lingo all started with the 1987 version, but the Netherlands carried the rights to it and by 2002.....the rest was history.

Friday on Overtime: The channel that gave Door3 the finger......Buzzr Digital. The beginning, the middle and the end. Don't miss that.

(song stops)

Time to review the practices and malpractices of May in our Yay & Yawn.

The yay: ABC's new Summer games lineup. Just when you want a break from watching the Olympics on NBC.

The yawn: The $25,000 Pyramid. Gone. Out of here. History.

After the break, Skin Wars may get removed from Saturday Afternoons, so go wait out in the waiting room where you can read girly magazines and watch Maury & Jerry Springer and courtroom shows and we'll return. Lauren LoGrasso and Roxy Striar will wait for your name to be called while in there.

(song fades out)

(Quick fade out)

Hey there everyone, while you were gone, Lauren or Roxy took your temperature, drew your blood, weighed in and used your tongue temperature to figure out how sick you are. And some people believe that GSN is sick of too much Feud. Why? These changes:

 Changes (May 16-22):
*Family Feud (Harvey) will air Saturday at 3pm and 3:30pm; replacing a Skin Wars rerun

Changes (May 23-29):
*An episode of Chain Reaction (Catherwood) will air Thursday at 5:30pm and not Steve Harvey Family Feud, which was originally planned. This follows a 90-minute episode of Deal or No Deal from 4-5:30pm. This is all one day only.
*Family Feud (Harvey) will air Saturday at 3pm and 3:30pm; replacing a Skin Wars rerun (same change as 5/21)

 This change means that Steve Harvey Family Feud will now air eight straight hours on Saturday from 2pm to 10pm ET. Yep. 8 straight hours of Feud. Are you going to watch anything else other than seeing 8 hours of Harvey?

More house cleaning stuff:

Winsanity launches Thursday at 9pm and 9:30pm. Both episodes are new and will rerun later that night at 12am, 12:30am, 3am and 3:30am; replacing Family Feud and The Newlywed Game
*Winsanity will rerun regularly Saturday at 8pm and 8:30pm; replacing Family Feud
*Winsanity will rerun regularly Sunday at 1pm and 1:30pm; replacing Family Feud
*Winsanity will rerun for one week only Friday at 10pm and 10:30pm; replacing Family Feud
*Family Feud will air Wednesday latenight at 1am and 1:30am for one week only; replacing The Newlywed Game
*Family Feud will regularly air Thursday and Friday latenight at 1am and 1:30am; replacing The Newlywed Game
*Family Feud will regularly air Saturday at 1am and 1:30am; replacing The Newlywed Game

Winsanity will debut on Thursdays and going forward, and will repeat on weekends. Feud will air in the late night slots to fill out the holes Sherriwed left. In 2 weeks, we will discuss Feud Overkill.

Sticking with Feud....

The same behemoth who rules the GSN ratings books will take the cover of People this week. Look for it in your local store.
Here's a little Whaley Mail.....
There's a person who is unknown, but it says....
"Sad to see "The $25,000 Pyramid is leaving the schedule. I really wish GSN would just add Donny Osmond's version onto their schedule."
Yep. Maybe it can replace 2012 Pyramid for afternoons. We'll see. Got any Whaley mail? Hit "Comment me, please" on the very bottom of my blog. Ok Whaley, fly off.
Now the 2nd intermission presented by Let's end the 2006 class reunion with a little KT Tunstall to get us into memorial day weekend.

So good! Now the 3rd period.
2006 was also the year in which High Stakes Poker invited poker players to play Texas Hold 'Em......with real cash. AJ Benza and Gabe Kaplan did the play by play of the action which attracted such poker players of the time such as Daniel Negreanu, Phil Laak, Sammy Farha and others. This was at the time at the center of the poker boom which attracted on ESPN and gained it to a worldwide audience especially World Poker Tour on cable. Nowadays, you can still watch ESPN for poker and FS1 for World Poker Tour, but GSN had it's own poker show from 2006 until 2011.

Looks like we're all done with a clean bill of health. Please remember to stay healthy and stay happy. Stay tuned for an all-new episode of General Children's Hospital after this plugging business.....


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. I heard we have a new patient and it happens to be a dental assistant who drank way too much soda. It's our Soda Girl Christa Nannos. Watch her operate like the red nose on the Operation game board. Until I call out the next patient, Play on, playas.

Winsane in the Membrane

(Graduation is looming, so get them a gift....Fandango gift cards. You'll treat your class of 2016 students to movie night after you get your cap & gown. For real.)

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: What the heck are you doing midweek? Reading GSN The Know, that's what. What can make you feel so right, everything comes out right as rain? GSN The Know, of course. All the GSN news & information right smack in your face as we become eyewitnesses as we hand it to you for opinions from a fan. So sit down and get ready to know GSN as we start with.....

 The Starting Line.

Winsanity is a mere weeks away from its June 9th premiere. A press release tells us that GSN has partnered with iPowow, a T.V. technology company, to enhance a play-along-at-home factor. Our screengrab friend Clip Art who is new here on the blog gave us these photos.

There's the set and Donald, but there is an announcer.....

....named Kira Soltanovich who is known in late night as the voice of a talking photo booth in a sketch on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and The Jay Leno Show. She is also involved in Pank-based shows. Madison Brinkman, you got a client. Here's more of the rules.

There are $100,000 worth of prizes to give away in each episode. The largest winnings come at the end with $10,000 and 2 cars split between the contestant and a randomly assigned audience member through the "Green win watch". Ten facts have to be stacked numerically throughout the entirety of the episode with four in the first round, three in the second round, two in the third round and one in the final round.

 Each list is not locked until Faison confirms with the contestant the phrase "Lock the List", similar to "Final Answer" on Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
The "Green Win Watch", which each audience member wears, is a glow in the dark, technological watch that lights up green for a member or portion of the audience who is eligible to win prizes.

A contestant is randomly selected from the audience to play for at least the first round and if that contestant performs well, he/she will play in future rounds then the entire game. In the first three rounds, if there is one misplaced answer, the contestant is replaced with another audience member. The first four numerical facts are provided with the selected contestant. In this episode, the contestant and 49 members of the audience have the chance to win $100 gift cards. If the contestant places the four facts in numerical order, fifty $100 gift cards are given (1 to contestant, 49 to audience). No matter what happens throughout the remainder of the episode, the first prize is kept for the contestant and audience.

The second round has three more numerical facts, which must be put in order on top of/between/below the four facts from earlier. The third round has two more facts, which must be ordered on top of/between/below the seven from earlier, now totaling nine facts. Prizes in the second and third round include more gifts cards and an outdoor movie theater for the contestant and each audience member.
You with me, so far? Good.
In the final round, the last numerical fact has to be placed with the same nine facts from earlier in the episode. The final round plays the game of "risk", where the contestant has to choose whether he or she wants to keep all three prizes won earlier (including the prizes with the audience) without moving on to the final fact with the shot at splitting the $10,000 and the cars with an audience member. The other option is moving on to stack the final numerical fact. If the final fact is stacked correctly, the contestant and one audience member split the $10,000 and take home a car each. In addition, the contestant and all audience members are able to keep the three gift cards/prizes won in the first three rounds. If the contestant stacks the last fact incorrectly, nobody wins anything. If a contestant does win everything, it is called "Total Winsanity." It's like going through a perfect game in baseball. I hope the June premiere will be the best game show on GSN.
 After the break, is The $25,000 Pyramid gone? That answer in mere moments from now.
(song fades out)


(Quick fade out)

And it looks like we returned. House cleaning note:

*Card Sharks (Perry) will air at 10:30am weekdays (in addition to 10am); replacing The $25,000 Pyramid
*Deal or No Deal returns to the Wednesday 5pm slot for one week only; replacing a Skin Wars rerun.
*Skin Wars will air Wednesday at 11pm for one week only; replacing Idiotest
*Skin Wars will not have a new run this Wednesday (May 25th). Season 3 episodes 2, 3 and 4 will rerun from 9pm-12am on Wednesday. Idiotest does still have new runs Tuesday, May 24th at 10pm and 10:30pm.
*A 90 minute episode of Deal or No Deal will air Thursday from 4-5:30pm for one day only. Steve Harvey Family Feud will air at 5:30pm
*Baggage will air in Friday latenight at 2am and 2:30am; replacing Baggage On The Road
*Baggage will air at 1am and 1:30am in Saturday and Sunday latenight; replacing Chain Reaction

That'll be next week. But The $25,000 Pyramid had a stellar run on GSN meaning it should've added in new ones instead of sticking with the leased ones. At least the Pyramid from 2012 is still there. Skin Wars will take a week off to regroup. Also, Chain Reaction from last year will be wiped out, yes, WIPED OUT the schedule for good. How did this decision leaves fans hanging? Poem.

Hey, I just met you...
And this is crazy....
So here's my Paddle Bubbles....
Comment it, maybe?
brianjohnson has a comment....
"Pure laziness on GSN's part. Even if they didn't want to acquire another classic lease, why a THIRD airing of a show that only has, what, 50-100 eps. anyway? I'd have gone with a double run of Press Your Luck, which is now the only classic that's only airing once, or even a third ep. of "Match Game" since it has more eps."
This is GSN at work. Deal with it. Wallace Chandler says....
"For people who don't want potty humor(Harvey Feud), watching people get ink or crappy wannabe reality, why bother paying for an upper tier anymore. I can watch Buzzr for free and be just as happy. I know Casey dis-Abell-ed writes about people living in the past, but GSN could satisfy w/ a nice mix. Check networks like TVLand. They are oldies but goodies from 9-5 and move to more recent fare the remainder of the day. GSN is losing variety and sadly I have the feeling it will start to show in their ratings soon. Feud burnout has to be close at hand."
You're absolutely correct.  Look at Cozi, MeTv and Antenna, they air more variety. In a related comment, somebody said....
"While it's true tv land is classic from 9am-8pm, they are no better than GSN when it comes to variety. All they show now is Andy Griffith, Gunsmoke, and Bonanza. Just 3 shows over 11 hours. Not the best overall schedule at all."
Ouch. Darla Fanbridge wraps it up with this...
 "I have a feeling that by the end if the year, GSN will be going in a new direction by eliminating pre-2000s fare and putting focus on 21st century material. GameTv in Canada is already there (the only pre-1990 show on its lineup is Bumper Stumpers, most likely a syndication package from the first season). At least GameTV has Drew's TPIR on its schedule, which is the only modern show I enjoy in first-run - plus it sometimes airs on a weekend on GameTV (many Saturdays and some Sundays). But yeah, I prefer Current TPIR episodes more."
Really? That's for all you Canadians getting that. Wished GSN would get the TPIR-Carey era, but it won't happen. Same for Buzzr.
Also this week, Skin Wars will be at the halfway mark. Tonight's new episode features eight remaining artists and airs new at 10pm ET. Artists will paint magical illusions and fortune-tell their way through art. Magician Christen Gerhart joins RuPaul, Robin Slonina and Craig Tracy as guest judge. Rebeeca Romijn hosts.
With Buzzr turning 1 year old this year, They are having a 3-day celebration from May 30th-June 1st. I'm not lying. A digital scratcher will help you win prizes. As if that wasn't enough, ew episodes of Let’s Make a Deal and special marathon blocks of some of your favorite shows including Family Feud The Celebrity Edition, To Tell the Truth and Match Game will all take place next month. Stay with GSN The Know as we look back on a year at Buzzr. Our GSN The Know Soda Girl Christa Nannos will perform to honor our beloved diginet turning 1 year old. Be part of this celebration!
Now the 2nd intermission presented by Even without Autotune like he did in 2014, T-Pain ushered in a new autotune this one.

Now we spring into the 3rd period.

Chain Reaction with Dylan Lane had a companion at first......StarFace with Danny Bonaduce. Proudced by Joker's Wild host Pat Finn, the program features 3 contestants answering pop culture questions, but contestants putting on masks to resemble a celebrity.....interesting.   In early November, the show was replaced by I've Got a Secret in the 9:30 PM time slot, leaving only a 3:30 PM weekend airing until January 2007, when the show was completely removed from the schedule and Match Game PM took its former weekend slot. That spelled doom for Starface....and Danny Bonaduce's game show career as we know it.

And so it ends. It ends on a dead end. Because it's the end. Today's blog is presented by Rougned Odor's Rock 'em, Sock 'EM Robots. Play against Jose Bautista and let the fight begin! Not authorized by Major League Baseball.

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. We will return next Wednesday, and until we return, Play on playas.

How to fill out 1000 surveys in 30 mintues

(Think you went to see Mother's Day starring Julia Roberts on Mother's Day Sunday? Well, Fandango did it to you. They'll give you a choice of movies and get tickets for it? Get right now.)

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: Just when you thought Ted Cruz dropped out to make Donald Trump the republican nominee and I know you hate him so much, I'm now in the running for president at the last minute, in fact, I want to be the mayor of Grimsborough, but I have a job to do, because in a world of fewer returning champions, too many wrong answers and  no answers, and buzzers, I'm there to run this office with Madison Brinkman being my first lady and instead of "Hail To The Chief," it'll be the "King Of Rock" by RUN-DMC. We can redecorate the White House with a more modern, more feng shui decoration look. So to all you Trump supporters, go suck on a lemon, won't you? Because we can make America great again, and GSN makes America great, so let's start with......

 The Starting Line.

I get an invitation in the mail earlier before we started it and this happened....

So there are your lineups. Place your bets on each one!
 A little Buzzr news after the timeout, so if you'll excuse me, I'll go to Target and get some snacks before some girl tries to catch me on tape. Come back.
(song fades out)

(Quick fade out)

And we're back on this little wild goose chase we call GTK. Now I heard a rumor......

........that Anderson's Feud and Rafferty's Card Sharks may come to Buzzr. Is that true? Well, we turn to the doctor whose prescription is Netflix and Hulu....Dr. Buzzr.

VO: Dr. Buzzr is a graduate of Maple Heights Community College with a degree in game show classics. He is a lecturer in and around the Grimsborough area and contributed to many in the field of self-help for and He's been interviewed on many podcasts and has yet to appear in TV talk shows and daytime network morning shows. Dr. Buzzr is not an actual doctor, nor a Ph.D., in fact, he doesn't play one on TV. He's simply a game show fanatic who is a member of the Stephanie Thorpe foundation for New Media Excellence, the national Game & Reality foundation and the Stan Lee writers club. And now, coming from his office on the 6th floor of the Wilton-North building....Dr. Buzzr.
(song fades out)
Dr. Buzzr: Thank you Pierre Kelly.
I found one report according to BuzzrPlus' Facebook page: remantleMedia and BUZZR provide 2 hours of "bonus" content weekly to affiliates to air on another subchannel in their frequency. Those shows include the syndicated 1986 Card Sharks with Bill Rafferty and the syndicated 1999 Family Feud with Louie Anderson. KGNG Las Vegas airs those 2 games on their independent subchannel branded Movies Plus, channel 47.5 (BUZZR's on 47.2). KCDO-TV Sterling/Denver took it one (big) step up. The independent s
tation branded K3 airs those games on their primary channel, 3.1 on Saturdays at 4:00 PM local time. It's the only footprint BUZZR has on the satellite pay-TV outlets, as K3 is carried on all cable/satellite/telco systems in the Denver market. So our friends in Denver, and the surrounding areas, having access to the BUZZR network (on KCDO's OTA channel 3.3) or not, can watch 2 hours of BUZZR game shows. Interestingly enough, it's two versions of games that aren't carried on the network. So there you have it. This has been Dr. Buzzr and I'm.....Dr. Buzzr.

Me: Thank you Dr. Buzzr for your insight.

Season 2 of Hellevator is casting a foursome. Who and your 3 friends want to do it? Click on this link here:

Now let's open up.....

The Buzzr Twitterers Club. I now call this meeting to order. I will now add the growing # of members to the list. I will now take to the floor by retweet by beginning with this......

Love this! I was a contestant on the Ross Shafer version of MG back in the day.

That was Raplh Garman of the podcast Hollywood babble-on talking about Match Game returning to ABC.

I just discovered BUZZR w your classic crazy fun shows from the 50's & 60's.  THE ABSOLUTE BEST CLASSIC TV ENTERTAINMENT IN YRS.

But is she related to J-Lo?

A. The host of "Double Dare" as seen on ?
Q. Who is pre- ?


And it's Gene Rayburn winning in a real barn-burner!
Great Win!

Yep. It was a barn burner and it was the last tweet sadly.
I now call this meeting adjourned.
(song stops)
Now the 2nd intermission presented by Here's a little Jamie Foxx from 10 years ago when he was not a versatile actor.


Here comes the 3rd period.

I've Got a Secret has become a panel favrote Goodson-Todman made, but there were 2 versions not produced by Mark Goodson Productions, 1 in 2000 with Teri Garr as panelist and Stephanie Miller as host and the other in 2006 with Bil Dwyer as host. The latter had an all-.............G-word panel, but the format remained the same for one season. If all 4 panel members can't come up with the guest's secret, it's dinenr for 2 in Beverly HIlls and $1000 spending money. This was cheap, but the factor of the classic and its theme song & set remained true to its roots. IGAS 2006 to me was the good show of 2006.

Time to duck & cover!

I said, it's time to......oh nevermind, it was a testing 2 miles away from the building. Anyways, today's blog is presented by "D4: The Mighty Ducks." The entire mighty Ducks pee-wee team is reunited to sign with the Minnesota Wild. This time, they're taking on the entire NHL. Gordon Bombay plays the owner while Charlie Conway plays the head coach. Will Ducks fly together once and for all to grab Lord Stanley's trophy? Coming soon to a theater near you.

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 since "Stalking Levar" is on a mid-season hiatus, Let's end with the GTK nerdy tag team tandem, The Library Bards. Play on, playas.
