Livewire! series premiere

Madison Brunoehler: From Game Show Live!, this is.....................

Livewire! Yesterday's headlines today. Brought to you by.....

Hot knives. It cuts through anything. Wood, steel, chanel purses, you name it. Pick one up at a hardware store near you.

And now from our Game Show Live! Newsroom, here comes Pierre Kelly!

Me: Thank you Madi2theMax, welcome to teh premiere of LiveWire! Here I am in the newsroom of the offices located in the Stan Lee shopping center. As you can see, our team is working hard on a crack variety of stories and Livewire! brings them all to you in a bi-Weekly format. So with that, let's start our Game show news.....with sass.

Behind Door #2.....Bang!

How does a comic, improviser, Whose Line Alum, and an LMAD host dropped in the middle of a cold weather city where sports and comedy are 2 things on their mind? Well, Wayne Brady is about to get his shot in “Hamilton” — in Chicago.
Producers of the hit musical said Monday that the comedian and game show host will play Aaron Burr from Jan. 17 until April 9 at The PrivateBank Theatre in Chicago.
Brady won a Primetime Emmy Award for “Whose Line Is It Anyway” and a Daytime Emmy Award as host of his own talk show, “The Wayne Brady Show.”
Brady is no stranger to the stage, making his Broadway debut in 2004 in “Chicago” and last year slipping into high heels to play Lola in “Kinky Boots.”
Brady will take over Burr from Tony Award-nominee Joshua Henry, who will take his character on the road in the show’s first national tour, which starts in San Francisco. Let's hope Drew Carey plays Abe Lincoln in a cameo appearance. 
Bella Twins, watch out, Haley and Emily Ferguson of will star on the Freeform series "The Twins: Happily Ever After," the network announced on Tuesday at the TCA Winter Press Tour.
"The Twins: Happily Ever After" will premiere March 20.
The show will serve as a second season to "Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After?," which starred "The Bachelor" Season 20 star Ben Higgins and fiancee Lauren Bushnell.
Haley and Emily both competed for Higgins' affections on "The Bachelor" Season 20, and later appeared on "Bachelor in Paradise" Season 3 as well as "Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After?".
"The Twins" series will follow the sisters as they leave their mom's home and pursue life on their own. Can't wait for Total Divas to come....oh, that's right, it's on E!

Don't let this next story fool you. Actors Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof have capped off a busy year by buying a place in Encino for $7.95 million. The couple previously put a house in Santa Monica up for lease and listed another in Brentwood for sale at $8.795 million shortly after. The Brentwood property is currently pending sale, according to the Multiple Listing Service. Their new house in Encino, designed by Peter Tolkin Architecture and built in 2001, is on more than three acres of grounds with a view of the San Fernando Valley floor. A blanket of oaks, sycamores, palms and fruit trees lends a park-like feel to the property. Inside, poured-concrete walls, steel-framed windows and vaulted ceilings give an atrium feel to the 5,500 square feet of living space, which includes a great room with a fireplace, an open-plan kitchen and a media room. The master suite has a separate office/den and a metallic soaking tub. Including a separate guesthouse and an art studio/gym, there are five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. A swimming pool and spa and a lighted tennis court also lie within the grounds. The sale is among the priciest transactions historically for the San Fernando Valley neighborhood and the most expensive this year, records show. Guess it'll be a housewarming party and Buffy is invited, huh?

And our final story falls under the category of.....

You can't make this....


This week's pick....

It's 1991 all over again. Earlier today, BWW reported that GRAMMY nominated and multi-platinum selling artist Ariana Grande and 10-time GRAMMY, Oscar-winning and multi-platinum selling musician John Legend may be performing the Oscar and GRAMMY-winning duet "Beauty and the Beast" as the title track for Disney's upcoming soundtrack to the live-action film adaptation BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. Now, Disney has confirmed the news. The song will also be featured in the film.

The ballad, originally performed by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson featuring eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken's beautiful melody and two-time Oscar-winner Howard Ashman's unforgettable lyrics, received an Academy Award®, Golden Globe® and GRAMMY Award, among other accolades, upon its release in 1991.

The new rendition of the classic song is produced by GRAMMY-winning veteran Ron Fair, whose music career spans 37 years as a major-label record company leader and accomplished producer, arranger, recording engineer and musical director. Fair was brought in to produce by Disney's president of Music & Soundtracks, Mitchell Leib, who also brought Grande and Legend to the project. The history of collaboration between Leib and Fair in film music goes back to the highly-successful "Pretty Woman" soundtrack. "Ron was the first and only choice to make this particular record," says Leib. "No one is a better vocal producer and he also has a great understanding of the filmmaking dynamic."

And sticking with Beauty and the Beast, it's another edition of.....

So Impressed! with Madi2TheMax. If you're ready to hear her impressions from the classic icoinic movie, please put your hands together when that 
Applause-o-meter goes off for....our very own Match Game mistress of impressionism, ....Madi2theMax!

Thanks Madi.

That's all for now, but remember one thing: Why did the Hamilton play add hip-hop to it? Because hip-hop wasn't around back then. But if you use your becomes a hit Broadway play. So until next time and all the on playas.

Stephanie Panisello: From Coast to Coast, Shore to Shore, Border to Border and beyond the far reaches of our galaxy's solar system, it's time to go all the way live on....

Now here is America's favorite contestant, Pierre Kelly!!!!!

Me: Thank you Stephanie Panisello, the only announcer who asked me to accept a job with iHeartRadio, but my radio friend Anthony Hardy the captain gave me a part time job with Tunein Radio. We will shall see as time goes on, but anyways, This is Game show Live! As live as it gets, as live as it happens and as live whenever you feel like it.

Today's program is presented this month by Cricket and in keeping in tune in musical streaming thingies, let me get my phone out right now.....unlock it and up comes the menu to scroll to Deezer. As I show it to you, it'll give you unlimited access to everything music and you can download offline when you're at work doing something and after a 30-day trial, it's $9.99 a month. But if you're a Cricket customer, it's $7 a month. Yes, $7 a month. Isn't technology wonderful? Okay, let's continue this free streaming service of game show insanity with....

The Opening Toss-Up story.

Here's a question you might ask yourself....

Do you think It's a Game show?

Look at this if you will.....

Bay Area comic Stroy Moyd wanted to turn his Uber and Lyft experience into a game show like none other. His result: Rideshare The Love.

He arranged the dates by putting out word to his personal network and mailing list of fans, and through the occasional Craigslist ad, he said. Friends would tell their singleton buddies, “Hey, I hailed you a ride, car’s on the way.” And then surprise them with the dating game.
Two competitors vie to become the chosen one. A single woman or man sits wearing an eye mask or blindfold, asking the suitors some fun questions, never seeing what they look like.
After a few rounds, but before the first stop, the blindfolded party has to choose who he or she would prefer to date. And Moyd will drive them off to their first date straight away if they so choose.
But, of course, there’s a twist. What if the person chosen doesn’t feel the love? He or she can reject the date and walk away with a cash prize instead.
Moyd’s dating show video surfaced on Worldstar Hip Hop and went viral earlier this year. Now the meme is poised to go mainstream. Monami Entertainment has signed the comic’s production company, Hella Funny, and will be shopping Rideshare the Love around for network, cable or online distribution in 2017.
The talent management firm founded by TV producer Mona Scott-Young is best-known for its work with Grammy-award winning hip hop icon Missy Elliot, and reality TV franchises including Love & Hip Hop and Money, Power & Respect

No word yet on when Erin Robinson will host a Saturday Morning kids version of Cash Cab in a School bus full of kids. But, I want to know......

Do you think It's a Game show? I'll give you the poll on our Facebook page.

(song stops)

This Friday on the premiere of Livewire!, Wayne Brady is not throwing away his shot. But why? We'll tell you about it on Friday. Catch it here!

(song stops)

The Party has just gotten started. On the way, the Profit....needs a partner. That's on the way, but first...

If you think Winter had something to do with Game Of Thrones, check this out.

Welcome back to Game Show Live! Later on in the show,  with a recent story about not wearing any pants on the subway, we talk to one of the directors of the Grimsborough Public Transportation system on why the dress code is in place and mandatory for not only passengers, but employees as well.

(song fades out)

First things first, CNBC today announced the ten finalists participating in THE PARTNER, the all-new series featuring Marcus Lemonis -the renowned investor, entrepreneur, and host of CNBC's hit show "The Profit." Premiering Tuesday, February 28 at 10pm ET/PT, the five episode series follows Lemonis as he searches for the perfect partner to help him manage the fast-growing portfolio of businesses he's acquired. In the end, one candidate will receive the opportunity of a lifetime: a half-million dollar contract, an equity stake, and the chance to help Lemonis manage his empire. 

Watch trailer: 

After investing more than $40 million of his own money in companies featured on "The Profit," Lemonis is now ready to invest in "The Partner." Thousands of people hailing from all corners of the country applied for the opportunity to participate, but only ten were invited to Chicago to take part in the final interview process. They are:

- Chuck Brewer from Indianapolis, IN
- Billy Canu from San Diego, CA
- Carrie Chitsey from Cedar Park, TX
- Erin Cobb from Kirkland, WA
- Michael Graves from New Rochelle, NY
- Ricardo Martinez from Atlanta, GA
- Peilin Pratt from Manhattan Beach, CA
- Buffie Purselle from Atlanta, GA
- Julianna Reed from Santa Monica, CA
- Stephanie Sievers from Shreveport, LA

"It has been a privilege to work so closely with some of the most hard-working entrepreneurs in the country, all of whom have shown me the heart and desire to turn their businesses around," Lemonis said. "In this new adventure, I am looking for someone with that same drive and passion to help inspire these up and coming business leaders, sustain their growth and their enthusiasm, and ensure that the sound investments we made today, are even more sound in the decades ahead."

Guess which show is coming back?

Yep, it's Starcade. Shout! Factory has acquired worldwide television format and ancillary rights to Starcade from JM Production company, the original game show creators, and show creators James Caruso and Mavis E. Arthur. The agreement provides Shout! Factory the rights to develop and produce a reboot of the show for television, as well as production of additional projects for a global audience. Shout! Factory will executive produce with JM Production Company.

Created by Caruso and Arthur, Starcade first aired in 1982 during the dawn of the video game era and is widely recognized as the first-ever video arcade game show, featuring great gamers competing against rivals playing the most popular games of the day in front of a live studio audience in order to win huge prizes. Alex Trebek hosted one of the first pilots for the show which was later picked up by Ted Turner to air on his then-fledgling cable station, WTBS; Starcade went on to air more than 130 episodes over three seasons on Turner hosted by Mark Richards during season 1 and Geoff Edwards for the remainder of the run.

“Starcade is a classic game show from the ‘80s and is pure nostalgic fun. We couldn’t be more excited to work with the original show creators to ‘retro-boot’ Starcade for a new generation of fans,” said Shout! Factory’s founders Richard Foos, Bob Emmer and Garson Foos. “As we continue to actively expand our reach into production and development for new series, movies, unscripted shows and specials, this deal exemplifies the type of content we plan to pursue which taps into the interests and passions of our company’s loyal fanbase.”

“We’re thrilled to be part of this Starcade revival,” said Caruso and Arthur. “We look forward to bringing the show back for all those avid Starcaders who have been waiting for years, as well as a new class of gaming heroes. Game on!”

The deal was negotiated by Shout’s Jeremy Whitham and James Caruso, the creator and executive producer of the original Starcade. And if anyone wants Nick Arcade back, let Maude Garrett host it.

Watch what Love Connection getting a reprieve. Andy Cohen will be the 3rd host of the long running dating program. The Most recent was Pat Bullard and the best known host ever, hands down......of course, Chuck "2 & 2" Woolery. The Woolery version is hands down the best one.

In keeping with the host thing, Jenna Dewan Tatum has joined NBC’s upcoming competition series “World of Dance” as a host and mentor.

Tatum joins judges Derek Hough, NE-YO and Jennifer Lopez on the 10-episode series, which features dancers competing for a $1 million grand prize. Lopez serves as executive producer on the series, which is produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio and Nuyorican Productions.

“World of Dance” is not Tatum’s only dance show at NBC. Aside from hosting this competition series, the dancer and actress will serve as a judge and mentor on an untitled, unscripted dance show that hails from her and her husband Channing Tatum. The project, which is described as a fresh take on the unscripted dance competition genre, has landed a six-episode order, though no premiere date has been set.

“Jenna’s background as a dancer, entertainer and actress make her the perfect choice to host and work alongside our three incredibly talented judges,” said Meredith Ahr, president, Universal Television Alternative Studio, NBC Entertainment. “We can’t wait to get started and give these four superstars a chance to both articulate and demonstrate how transformational dance can be.”

“World of Dance” will also feature choreographers Napoleon and Tabitha D’umo, best known as Nappytabs, as well as director Alex Rudzinksi. Guess So You Think You Can Dance has some competition going on.

It's Funny you should ask that Entertainment Studios Inc. has slotted a premiere week with comedians for its new comedy game show Funny You Should Ask. The series is a firm go for fall 2017 in broadcast strip syndication and cable.

Hosted by Jon Kelley (Extra, The Mole), Funny You Should Ask is a comedy game show featuring a panel of comedians who interact with contestants for cash. In each episode, the stakes increase as the contestants ask the comedians questions. 

The comedians appearing in the premiere week episodes include: Howie Mandel, Anthony Anderson, Tom Arnold, Louie Anderson, Sheryl Underwood, Cedric the Entertainer, Jon Lovitz, Sherri Shepherd, Natasha Leggero, Bill Bellamy, Harland Williams, Jackee, Gary Owen, Maria Bamford, Dave Coulier, Pauly Shore, and Caroline Rhea.

Funny You Should Ask is produced and distributed by Entertainment Studios.

Let's have some fun with this Body Language puzzle from 1984.

Here's a Hint: Harley-Davidson. We'll give you the answer after this Google play Music Interlude from......Robyn Adele Anderson. Not only she is a pinup, but she is a singer as well, and she also contributed to Postmodern Jukebox, who you saw last week. Here she is on her own now.

So....did you figure out what it was? The answer is.....

Sons of Anarchy would be proud.

Before we get into our last segment, it's our first 2017 edition of.....

So Impressed! with Madi2TheMax.  In honor of Zootopia stealing the Best animated feature at the Golden Globes, she'll impress the characters from the movies. Here now is our Match Game mistress of impressionism, ....Madi2theMax!

Thanks Madi.  You made it an animal house.

Caroline Rhea may have been on Hollywood Squares, but she made it on rival Match Game. But do you think she's still got it? It's our.....

Starbucks Via Instant Classic.

That's it for this week. Today's consolation prize is a supply of Vanilla Coke. It'll make you sugary and is NOT part of a healthy diet. Stick to Diet Coke. It fights tooth decay, depression, diabetes and makes you lose weight. Works for me.

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.

Grand Re-Opening Renovation Renewal.....Rejuvenation

Stephanie Panisello: From Coast to Coast, Shore to Shore, Border to Border and beyond the far reaches of our galaxy's solar system, it's time to go all the way live on....

Now here is America's favorite contestant, Pierre Kelly!!!!!

Me: Thank you Stephanie Panisello, my celebrity apprentice to Steven Seagall. I predict Lou Diamond Phillips and Samantha Mathis would make the final 2, but anyway, welcome to what would be the revival of a old blog turned new from the Stan Lee Shopping Center right across from the Shira Lazar podcast center and not far from the TPC at Stan Lee Mini golf course on Maple Heights. This is Game show Live! As live as it gets, as live as it happens and as live whenever you feel like it.

Today's program is presented this month by Cricket and what I'm holding right now is the LG Spree. Not only does it has the 4G LTE speed and power, but it has dual cameras and unique LG features, and you can get it for free at a limited time at your Cricket store or kiosk when you sign up today.


What Is.....Game Show Live!?

Well....Imagine this.....

It's a Party House for game show freaks like you. You've been invited on the guest list to party with game show's biggest and best. From the O.G.s to the newbies, everyone's a winer when you're living Game Show Live! You're not only a star, but a contestant at this place. It is as one Disney song said "The future is littered with prizes," and our future will reward you with the best content you ever had. We got ice cold Pepsi in the cooler and homemade pizza right out of the oven. My friend Gamemeetsgirl on the turntables playing everything from 70's disco to 90's dance. Oh look, "Hot Potato" marathon is on in the dining room, but I see Ben Gleib and Paula Rhodes playing Twister. I can see Chris Hardwick and Erin Robinson do the Watusi, while Ashley V. Robinson and Jason Inman get their Buzzr binge on. I can see Elspeth Eastman & her elephant show jazz band rock out to jazz standards while you duke it out on old school video games. And as far as the backyard  is concerned....well.....WWE Superstars and Divas mix & mingle while GSN plays on every Big screen TV. It's also reserved for wrestling events, too. And it has a retractable roof in case in rains.  We don't care about noise ordinance tickets, because Game Show Live! brings the noise and provides the power of what a game show is. And now, on the 4th day of January in the year of our lord, Two thousand and Seventeen, Are you ready to......


Just ahead, What exactly is....The Wall? That's on the way, but first...

(song fades out)

If you paid .99 to about 1.29 for a song, think again. This offer here will change your life.....forever. Watch.

(fade to commercial)

Welcome back to Game Show Live! Later on in the show, we'll talk to a local veterinarian who tell you why dogs wake up with their own snoring.

(song fades out)

But first, Something new came to the peacock fact, it was a preview of it last month. I'm talking about......

The Wall. Built in stature and in size, it's a Plinko game board taking a feng shui makeover. It's mission is to give away millions and millions of dollars. That's what Andrew Glassman and LeBron James came to mind, but.....there was this......

A video posted by Jordan Hass (@jordha) on

Thanks to Bingo America buddy Jordan Hass, it was 1.3 million down the drain. But then came the contract signing.....was this a turnaround?

Sad night, isn't it? Despite all this, this Twitter moment happened.....

A photo posted by Jordan Hass (@jordha) on

Many of it say it's rigged. Can you say life-changing money in 60 minutes? However.....

Driving up the wall

The Wall helped NBC out a lot becoming a hit. Whether you like it or not, you'll tune in for a feel good show.

While the red and green balls dropped like plinko chips this past week, Match game debuts its second season and this time around they brought a few names....

Celebrity Panelists for January 4: Jason Alexander (“Seinfeld,” Tony Award-winner)
Cheryl Hines (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”)
Ice T (“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”)
Ellie Kemper (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”)
Wayne Brady (“Whose Line Is It Anyway?” “Let’s Make a Deal”)
Caroline Rhea (actress, comedian, talk show host)

And that's just the premiere of the 2nd season. Will it continue its shine this time around?

Over to the United Kingdom and Sarah and Miriam were conestants on Pointless, a reverse variant of Family Feud. What happens

Sacre Bleu indeed. Keeping things over the pond, Blankety Blank, the UK variant of Match Game may get a full series.
                        The Sun reports that ITV were very happy with the special - which featured Anne Robinson, Lesley Joseph, Louis Walsh and the Chuckle Brothers - and have got Walliams in to talk about a full series.

An ITV insider allegedly told the publication: "David was a huge hit as he hosted Blankety Blank for the first time this month and managed to draw in an audience of nearly four million.

"The revival clicked with a brand new generation and David instantly got the comedic charm and effortless jokes that previous hosts used to bring to the program.

"ITV bosses think it would be the perfect show to bring back to our screens for the new year after canceling some of their other quiz shows.

"And although they haven't quite signed a whole new series on the dotted line, they've been in discussions with David for a while now to host a full season of it.
"David loved presenting the program as it's right up his street so it's all looking pretty hopeful right now and chiefs think David could replicate the show's success from the 80s." Pretty cool, huh?

And keeping the topic alive, DOND, the one that Howie Mandel did is going on tour?

Executive producer Richard Hague recently told the Radio Times: "Things have gone really well. Who knows if we’re going to do some more?
"The reality is you could say we’ve done the studio, we want to do something else. People weren’t sure what we were going to do with the format, and then this came along and we did ten great shows.
"So next year we’ll see if we want to do some more. I know Noel’s up for it so let’s see what they do."

The UK version is no longer airing as did the US version a long time ago.

Another UK show is Divided, but the US version is getting the treatment on GSN January 19th to bow with Idiotest 4.0. Here's a look at it.

And now it's time to.....

Buzz-GSN where we ask you guys on the GSN facebook page everything and anything. First one goes to Adreienne Melsel?

When does "The Chase" return?

Let me give you the answer......

Cancelled, dummy.

Here's Nicolas White.

"How come when GSN brought back Wheel of Fortune to their schedule they went with recent episodes instead of the classic episodes?"

Well, I'll let Robert Phillips answer it.

"Money issue. Cheaper to air more recent seasons."

See? Speaking of that, did you hear the new music package this past week? I wish Robyn Cage would remake the 1983-89 music with a modern makeover. Anyway, back to the segment and I got one more from Alisha Doutt.

"Today I'm paying tribute to Suzy Knickerbocker with a marathon of What's My Line. She was one of the best columnists of all time She lived a long & blessed life. Condolences to her friends and family."

May she RIP.

We like to have a little fun each week, so let's play a little game. Can you....Sqramble This?

Here's a hint: You go to IHOP to get one. We'll give you the answer after this Google play Music Interlude from......Scott Bradlee and the Postmodern Juxebox Orchestra. Every week, they take a hit and make it vintage....because.....we like it. Let's hear one of their songs gone retro.

So....did you figure out what it was? The answer is.....

You deserve maple syrup on that.

And finally, Save to Win is making CW's daytime game show debut. In fact, it's weekly on Saturday mornings. Here's a show to give you some thought.

But what if you actually didn't watch it at all? Here are 3 things you should avoid watching.

Number 1....

Say the product....and that's it.

Look at what George Gray did on Price. Johnny and Rod didn't do it. Pat Neely from my hometown of Memphis says the product and asks a question about it. So what if an announcer could say what the product describes? After all, Jay Stewart did it on Deal.

Number 2....

Round 2 reminds you of Think Fast.

There's an even called The Feelies from Carrington's version and this show does the same thing with a blindfold. So that means it's a fun thing....right?

And Number 3.....

The bonus game.

What does this remind you of?

Oh yeah, Pick a Pair. In it, it's the game times 15. It's impossible to win $5000. I wished someone would win it....I guess.....

But if you're curious to see it, catch Save To Win every Saturday on the CW. Check local listings.

That's it for this week. Today's consolation prize is a copy of Season 1 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians on DVD. See why the show became a phenomenon.

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.
