(March madness can only mean one thing: Buffalo Wild Wings. I love this, and they got a staff to give you drinks and food like chicken wings of any sauce while you watch sporting events, so head to a BWW nearest you.)
VO: This is GSN The Know. The most informed a United States of America. Now, from the WIlton-man about games, Pierre Kelly.
Welcome and let us not mess us names like John Travolta at the Oscars because we have winners and losers in a blog all set for you. Hilty, the envelope please.
Family Feud put together a chain of slots from 1 to 12, but the razzies went to these.....
DED kicked it off first and after Pyramid came a double dose of Baggage and there was Match Game in between. After feud came a quadruple MOAM round out. There's the first period, Adele....um, Hilty?
Just after this, a tribute to one of the last legends of hosting. Please stay tuned.
(Song fades out)
(quick fade out)
Welcome back. Last week we said goodbye to Jim Lange, the first person to host the very first game show Chuck Barris ever created. That was the Dating Game. In it, 3 bachelors or bachelorettes interrogated questions from suitors in order to find a date. That formula stuck through 5 decades on TV. Other projects shown were Bullseye, a Barry-Enright series, the 1984 version of Name That Tune and more. After this he returned to radio and he was seen in an NBC special alongside legends Wink Martindale, Bob Eubanks and Ben Stein showcasing the outrageous moments in game show history. He was 81 years old. To honor him, they did a tribute on a game that made him a legend this week by showing Dating Game shows with celebrities that got their start like Tom Selleck and Michael Jackson all morning long. May he rest in peace.
On the bright side of things, Dreq Carey completed the trio of 2011 hosts by going on DWTS. Wendy Williams and Bill Engvall were the other 2,but both didn't win a mirrorball trophy. Can Drew break the curse? We'll see.
And it's the first of every month, so we have a new feature called......
Carni-poll. Step right up and see what polls make fans think about the network in general Taken from the GSNN blogspot page, we answer your questions and rank 'em. First.....
"What is the best option for GSN to air against the Super Bowl?" (6 polled) *"Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader? from 2012" (4, 67%) *"Dancing with the Stars from 2013" (2, 33%) *"The Newlywed Game, which airs now" (0%)
Fifth Grader should've taken it. They need it back. Trust me.
"Could Mind of a Man work on another network? (not GSN)" (36 polled) *"Absolutely" (4, 11%) *"It's worth a shot, may or may not succeed" (14, 38%) *"Never" (18, 50%)
I'm thinking MTV or BET should work as a platform for it.
"Do you want Brooke Burns to return to The Chase for a third season?" (37 polled) *"Yes" (36, 98%) *"No" (1, 2%)
Of course. Why not?
"Will Mark Labbett choose to return to The Chase for another season?" (39 polled) *"Yes" (39, 100%) *"No" (0%)
"What do you think of block scheduling shortened by an hour to 8-11pm (ET)?" (26 polled) *"Smart" (19, 73%) *"Not smart" (7, 27%)
See kids. Watching GSN can be entertaining. Last one....
"Do you plan on watching Skin Wars on GSN This Summer?" (29 polled) *"Yes all eight episodes" (0%) *"An episode or two" (4, 13%) *"Not at all" (25, 87%)
To the 13% who want to see it, you deserve a selfie slap in the face.
On to the 2nd intermission presented by swagbucks.com. When you think The Dating Game, you think Herb Alpert. Here he is with a song that later got sampled by Biggie Smalls and Diddy.
Now the third period and we feature moments in the game show world we all live by. Here's a Dating Game with actor Vincent Price.
And today's blog is brought to you by online dating, or as I like to call it the Love Connection home game.
Don't forget to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, Pierre Jason Kelly on FB and @Johnny_Arcade on twitter. We'll see you later and play on, playas.
(Blows kiss) See ya!
