Chasing the Stars Away

(Before you gather the family for Thanksgiving dinner, hit up Starbucks for last minute holiday shopping....or to just hang out with a drink. Find one near you.)

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: Welcome to the building of solace and GSN is our life. We breathe & live into it, 24/7/365. Happy to have you here. Let's get into....

The Starting Line.

Just because 1 celebrity edition of The Chase isn't enough......it is rumored that the network can have a couple more. With season 4 on the way, teh stars will include Brian Letscher, Joe Morton and Kate Burton in one episode; in another episode recorded, Tatyana Ali, Carson Kressley and Cameron Mathison.
Only one is at this season which will conclude next month. No word yet on where season 4 will end up.



 
After this, December changes and the GTK awards preview. Hold off on the turkey casserole, because we'll be right back!

*Steve Harvey's Family Feud retakes the 12pm hour weekdays.

A Rare Rear End

(more people go to Starbucks for breakfast than Krystal, McDonalds, Burger King and Panera Bread combined. See why at a Starbucks near you.)


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNiIenc7ovs

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: Welcome in to the only blog to ever figure out what a Mockingjay really is. Time to shoot for real. Aiming at the target is.....


The Starting Line.

The Chase got off in a big way. The Celebrity edition scored 610K viewers, which is down 8% than the September 2nd episode. The show is also up 26% per year. I'd say Chase is off & running. Let's see how the rest of the season goes.


 
In one moment, the future of Tylenol Time Capsule and A Moment to Live By. Stay Tuned. Why? Because your stepmom warned you to.
 
(song fades out)
 
 
 



(Quick fade out)
 
Now that your stepmom told you to, we're back. What's with the future of GSN doing rarities. Well, A story at Media Insights say that it'll run monthly. So in October, We had All-Star Secrets, Babble and Crosswits. Over at a site called Game show Paradise, one poster said:
 
 
Game Show Paradise poster: GSN puts the [old rarities] shows in terrible time slots.

Well, at first they put it in prime time, but nothing happened, then it improved at a late slot. SO will it stay here or go? I don't know.

With 2014 winding down, the new year will be promising for the network in development. Keep in mind, some will get the green light whoile others.....don't. Have a look at the lineup.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UL4PPDka7bk
*Horror film superstar Jason Blum is helping the network with the new entry Hellevator. The series will feature contestants entering a scary, imposing warehouse via the Hellevator. The players will have to compete in various scary, suspenseful and emotionally exhausting challenges.
 
Good for SYFY, good for GSN? We'll see.
 
*Steampunk’d, from Pink Sneakers Productions, will showcase artists, designers and inventors who specialize in steampunk creations. If you need a refresher on what steampunk is, click here. Contestants will be challenged each week to make new works of art merging the past and present.
 
Can it be the new Skin Wars of the younger set? I don't know.
 
*How-To Games (wt) will challenge contestants to quickly pick up and master various difficult tasks with the help of popular internet how-to videos. Mission Control Media, who is behind the very-fun Hollywood Game Night, produces.
 
Um.....I'll watch that.
 
*Bingo Bash is based on the popular app and GSN game which sees over 900,000 players a day. One contestant will enter the studio each week and play against online opponents for the chance at big money.
 
That'll work.
 
*Winsanity, from Electus, will ask one contestant to arrange seven facts in numerical order, from low to high. Each successful round wins prizes for the team as well as the audience. If the contestants lose, though, the audience also loses everything.
 
Sounds dramatic? Yeah, I'll take that.
 
*Face 2 Face is a studio-based modern dating game using the technology of apps. The show, produced by Keshet DCP, lets one potential dater hear and see each the singles, as well as get to know anything about their personal lives courtesy social media. However, the singles cannot see the dater. The field will be narrowed down to one until the tables are turned and the final single gets to choose to meet the dater or bail out of the game before meeting face to face.
 
No.
 
BTW, App Wars did a pilot with Danica McKellar hosting and there will be 3 judges which includes.......Atari alum Nolan Bushnell. Okay. Hope I'll watch it.
 
(song stops)
 
New segment: Faking The Rules. With the first season of Idiotest down, the very first 2 aired had a different Smart Money round. Here's how it went in case you missed out on it.
 
To win the $10,000, 5 puzzles had to be solved in 60 seconds. These were multiple choice/multiple answer questions. For every incorrect answer tapped on each puzzle, 5 seconds would be deducted. You would only win $500 per correct puzzle.
 
So it didn't have both players playing over the same puzzle? That's not nice. I guess GSN picked those 2 as the worst shows this week alone. Come season 2....things will change.
 
Time now for the 2nd intermission presented byswagbucks.com. Cash Money & marvelous drop this......
 
 
 
Time now for the 3rd period.
 
Did you hear Steve Harvey was a grandfather?
 
 
 
 
It's true. But he can do everything on TV and radio. Let's see how the title of granddad suits Feud in.....A Moment to Live by.
 
 
 

 
 
Dog Tired. Today's blog is presented by any artist doing a christmas song. With the holidays right around the corner, it's hard to pick which version of "Winter Wonderland" is your favorite.

On your Mark.....Get Set......Where are you going?

(Starbucks has holiday drinks. Dunkin' DOnuts don't. Starbucks have friendly baristas. Dunkin Donuts Don't. Starbucks is very small yet warm & cozy. Dunkin Donuts......do not. Hit Starbucks instead today.)



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNiIenc7ovs

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: With the temperatures dropping, we're not stopping. It's GTK and PK is here to serve you throughout what GSN has to do and what to do. Let's do start with....

The Starting Line.

Family Feud on TV Land did nothing to deserve help from a network that once aired old shows....and still do. Yet GSN remained it's composure to their Feud as well. Look at the numbers if you will....


TV Land Family Feud numbers:
October 3 9:30pm: 643,000 viewers (compared to the 520K primetime average)
October 7 8:00pm: 489,000 viewers (compared to the 539K primetime average)
October 7 8:30pm: 601,000 viewers (compared to the 539K primetime average)
October 7 9:00pm: 696,000 viewers (compared to the 539K primetime average)
October 8 8:00pm: 607,000 viewers (compared to the 539K primetime average)
October 8 8:30pm: 603,000 viewers (compared to the 539K primetime average)
October 8 9:00pm: 647,000 viewers (compared to the 539K primetime average)
October 13 8:00pm: 361,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 13 8:30pm: 416,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 13 9:00pm: 483,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 14 8:00pm: 645,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 14 8:30pm: 719,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 14 9:00pm: 766,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 15 8:00pm: 513,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 15 8:30pm: 616,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 15 9:00pm: 579,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 21 8:20pm: 363,000 viewers
October 22 8:20pm: 233,000 viewers
October 24 8:20pm: 355,000 viewers
October 28 8:20pm: 265,000 viewers (compared to the 428K primetime average)
November 4 8:20pm: 430,000 viewers
That turned 3 primetime slots into only one timeslot. BET, however, took the 9 EST slot, but reduced to just 9:00. The question is....Will TV Land or BET be the first to go? We'll soon see.
 
 
In a Few, Maratthons and Celebrity Clearances, We'll clear the mess while you watch this.
 
(song fades out)
 
 
 
 






 


(Quick fade out)
 
Everything is now cleared and we start again with marathons. Lace up your running shoes, leave your Starbucks at home and strap on your running gear, GSN has turkey day marathons for you.....
 
*Season 2 episodes of The Chase will air Thanksgiving Day from 1pm to 7pm (Throwback Thursday remains from 8am-Noon; Steve Harvey's Family Feud will air in the 12pm hour)
*Game Show Moments Gone Bananas will air from 8am to 1pm on Black Friday
*Steve Harvey's Family Feud will air from 1pm to 6pm on Black Friday (10-11 episodes)
*Tattletales with Bert Convy as host will air Sunday (11/30) at 11pm and 11:30pm. These episode numbers are '421' (11pm) and '201' (11:30pm). Celebrities included in this episode are Vic Tayback, Nancy McKeon, Shecky Greene, Michael J. Fox, Howie Mandel and Lloyd Bridges.
 
Cool huh? As far as changes go....
 
 
*Family Feud (Karn) will air in the 12pm hour weekdays; replacing Family Feud (Harvey).
*There will be no new episode of The Chase this week. Instead on Tuesday night, the 11/11 and 11/18 episodes will rerun from 8-10pm and again 11pm-1am. Idiotest will not air on Tuesday nights this week.
 
Un cool.  But let's let the fans say their marathon ideas with a little poem to write about.....
 
 
Hey, I just met you...
And this is crazy....
So here's my Hover Ball....
Comment it, maybe?

One poster said:

"I would like to see another fully stuffed Feud marathon. This Is how I would do the schedule."

8 to 10 am Dawson Feud
10 am to 12 pm Combs Feud
12 to 2 pm Anderson Feud
2 to 4 pm Karn Feud
4 to 6 pm O Hurley Feud
6 to Midnight Harvey Feud

Pretty cool, huh? Another one said.....

11/27-
8am/7c to 12am/11c Thanksgiving Marathon of 21st Century editions of Family Feud:
8am/7c- 4 Hours of Family Feud(Karn)
12pm/11c- 4 Hours of Family Feud(O'Hurley)
4pm/3c- 8 hours of Family Feud(Harvey)

11/28
8am ET/7c to 1am ET/12c All Classic Feast marathon in honor of GSN's 20th Birthday

11/29
9am/8c to 12pm/11c- 4 Hours of Newlywed Game(Shepard)
12pm/11c to 10pm/9c- 10 hours of The Chase

11/30
9am/8c to 12pm/11c- 4 hours of Whammy!
12pm/11c to 6pm/5c- 6 hours of Minute to Win It
6pm/5c to 10pm/9c- 5 hours of Let's Ask America

I'll be there for 11/28 if I'd watch it. Another one said.....

"I like a Chase Marathon. I got cable in February, so I want to see the first two seasons."
 
Either that or Idiotest. Finally, it's this person with......
 
"I don't think GSN will air a new episode of The Chase the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, they didn't last year. So there will be 28 episodes by the time Thanksgiving comes around. Here's what I hope the marathons are.

Thanksgiving:
8am-midnight The Chase (16 episodes)

Black Friday:
8am-noon Sale of the Century
Noon-midnight The Chase (remaining 12 episodes)

I really hope Thanksgiving and Black Friday aren't two straight days consisting primarily of Harvey Feud like it has been the last 2 years. Don't we get enough Harvey on a regular basis?"
 
Well enough Harvey is enough. Be that.
 
As far as "The Line" goes, it'll be a special instead of a regular series in December. Be watching for it. Welp, after a 1-month absence, it's the new & improved.....
 
Okay, not all-new & improved, but still new for you. Here it comes....













(song fades out)

And it's time for the 2nd intermission presented by swagbucks.com. She may have won America's Got Talent, but Emily West knew how to throw it down on the show. Here she is with this song.....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZP_sVqPMBOQ


And let's do the 3rd period.

Celebrities on GSN have always been that way since the beginning. But some stars can't embarrass themselves. Why? By signing a waiver form in hopes they want to appear on TV. Joe Isuzu himself, David Lesiure was on Super Password, but why isn't he on this very network? Well, he was abysmal. Jon Bauman? Pretty good, but he's no longer there. Maybe it was before that Match Game-Hollywood Squares mashup I talked about last week. Tony Danza? Well.......................no. Reason: Not good at Pyramid or any other game show either. It's hard to get big names who are still alive in there, but the ones who are dead may be. If you want to be a celebrity and get your name on GSN......sign away. That way, you'll see your name on classics and modern and you'll get residual checks for your appearances in 5-20 years from now. There, I said it, didn't I? So remember, If you see David Letterman or anybody else they haven't seen on Password plus or Super Password, let the network know and they'll help.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FCHk_gSwKo

And with that, we sign off. Today's blog is presented by words you can't say at Chik-Fil-A. Making your job less crappy like Old TV.

Missing Something?

(You don't have to wait until December to get the new red cups at Starbucks. Ask your barista for one today.)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNiIenc7ovs

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: Hope you set your clocks back this past weekend, because we're here and we won't take it back. An extra hour of sleep means plenty of time for you to watch a whole lot of GSN. And time to get off of....

http://youtu.be/Gxa_8FSTkXQ

The Starting Line.

The Chase has tickets in person for you too see them. It's for people in the LA area or planning to visit. It started this week, here's what the rest of the week shapes up....

*Thursday, November 6th: 9:30am PT; 2:30pm PT.
*Friday, November 7th: 9:30am PT; 2:30pm PT.
*Monday, November 10th: 9:30am PT; 2:30pm PT. *Tuesday, November 11th: 9:30am PT; 2:30pm PT.
*Friday, November 14th: 9:30am PT; 2:30pm PT.

So either get up early or just sleep in once you get those tickets to see the greatest show in the world.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gcRt2eXiHX0

After the timeout, what fans miss out on and GSN won't let you see this program with 2 game shows in one hour. That answer straight ahead.

(Quick fade out)

Okay kids & kidettes, poetry in motion sickness.

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

We asked fans what they missed now the weekend purge has taken over for a few weeks out.

One fan said:

"I miss Karn Feud, Whammy!, and Minute To Win It. Those were good shows. They took those off because they had a bad week ratingswise and they overreacted to it. 1 vs 100 didn't bother me, but the show lasted a year and a half and like Harvey Feud, it got a little tiring. Sadly, they took these good shows off for more and more and more of Harvey Feud. Love Triangle, I have no idea why this crappy dating show is still on, with 2 hours of this show, they will burn off this show within a month. Sherriwed I don't have a problem with, but with the content, this should be in the evening and not in daytime. For Feud fans, John O Hurley is still on there, so enjoy him while he lasts, because GSN will probably get rid of him in a couple of months for more Mr. Harvey. Karn fans, don't worry, there is YouTube. For you Whammy!, Minute To Win It, or 1 vs 100 fans in the house, YouTube is maybe your destination. Wow, this was a long ass comment. I apologize."

Boy that was long. Another viewer said:

"I think the obvious answer would be Dawson Feud but maybe other classics that have disappeared over the years such as Hollywood Squares, the original Password (the surviving episodes of course), and others. Or maybe a classic that's never aired on the network before (Concentration comes to mind)."

Maybe one more.....

"I wanna see the first six seasons of Shop 'til you Drop on GSN at 11AM."

That's what I was wanting for, too.

But what fans didn't miss was Crosswits the week of Halloween, and good numbers made it help.

Game Show Network's second stack of "game show rarities" from last Sunday night featured Crosswits from the 1980's with many celebrity guests. This hour of Crosswits, which aired from 11pm-12am ET late Sunday night averaged a reasonably solid 290,000 total viewers for the hour, and a 0.1 in the 18-49 demo. The first episode had 302,000 viewers while the second dropped 8% to 277,000 viewers.

Guess the classics aren't going anywhere, huh?

Quick note: The Celebrity Chase show will be on Nov. 11th on cable ondemand systems. Look for it.

Now the 2nd intermission presented by swagbucks.com. Giving her the best legs in wrestling, did you know Stacy Keibler can sing? Really? Then watch.

Stacy Keibler- Why Can't We Just Dance? Lyrics: http://youtu.be/WoliVDcWNNQ

Now the last dance of the evening.

Time for a brand new 3rd period segment entitled:

http://youtu.be/l_Uo0VJihCU

What GSN won't let you see

A collection of shows GSN refuses to allow. And today....

Match Game/Hollywood Squares Hour (Episode 6) (19…: http://youtu.be/J-aFUsipeW8

Match Game & Hollywood Squares. For one hour, it seemed like a match made in heaven, eventually......it wasn't. Why? Peter Marshall didn't want to host it, but Jon "Bowzer" Bauman did, Gene Rayburn disliked it....obviously and the Hollywood Squares didn't use a rule in which you have the earn the square yourself if you're in a situation your opponent gets a wrong judgement. Such a pity. However the theme remains a classic and Gene refuses to have reruns on cable, syndication or anywhere. Well, he's already dead and Fremantle haven't heard anything from it....at all, but they took Gene's word and won't get on the phone with GSN to negotiate it. Talk about a blank square, er, stare.

The Match Game....Hollywood Squares.....Hour. What GSN won't let you see.
