(After getting her love something for Valentine's Day, get yourself some cyber money with IBotta. You get all the chocolates and candy on the list and's cash! Download the app today.)

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: Hello there, wild & wacky internet freaks. Welcome to the gym of GSN. A diet and exercise of games...for the brain. Here, the well-known hosts are personal trainers and once you see GSN, it's mental aerobics. Time to go all Crossfit in.....

 The Starting Line.

Valentine's day is This sunday. One game show fanatic named Adam Nedeff gave us these Valentine's Day cards for this year. He did it last year, but now he's got a new batch of them on his facebook account. Let's look at some of them.

There's more on his Facebook account. Go there to surprise your sweetie. Happy almost Valentine's Day.
(song stops)

And that folks. was a warm-up, but after a cool down, some more V-Day cards. Think before you take a Pepsi or Gatorade or Coke Zero, because we're returning very shortly!
(song fades out)
Up against the wall! Because we're back.
So far, we have Valentine's Day cards, but what if GSN hosts pitched in? Well, here at GSN The Know, we have the solution.
Ben Gleib: If you don't be my Valentine, then you're an Idiot!
Brooke Burns: Hope your valentine is a beastly expression!
Mike Catherwood: You're always a link in my superchain.
The Soska Sisters: Would you be our valentine without scaring the pants off of someone?
John Mate & Pat Cowell of Man Vs. Fly: You make our Valentines more than a minute.
RuPaul: You're always a bodypainting masterpiece for Valentine's day.
Donald Faison: You're making my Valentine's a Winsanity!
But there's more.
(song ends)
Our Know-It-All David Downs came up with these....
He used to host Mall Masters, but now....
The guy who replaced Chuck Woolery on the Wheel...
Remember Pyramid in 2012? Well...
And ladies & gentlemen, boys & girls, it's the head honcho of the network....
And to end the whole thing.....the ratings monster himself......Steve Harvey!
(song stops)
Sticking with Steve, they did a T-Mobile ad while all of America watched the Broncos put a stop to those Carolina Panthers....
This was in the wake of the Miss Universe fiasco he was infamously known for.
Time now for "In A Snap." Flasher took this photo of the Winsanity set. Do you see it now?
Now you do.
But we're about to 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......
Melody @pfandpinupcurls Feb 9
I am loving the station.
Don't you, of course? From @spoopy_girl:

Betty White is a guest on p much every old game show on Buzzr, is consistently the most charming

Spelling Huckabee

(Ever wish grocery shopping was more than a chore? Well, Ibotta does it. They give you money for shopping the items that are available to you. Get the Ibotta app on IOS and Android.)

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: Yes, friends and enemies...and sometimes frenemies, it's GSN The Know. We're the only blog that sticks to the script once GSN sticks with you forever. GSN gets you stuck in a daze of game shows and before you stick a fork in it for the night, you'll be sticking to the favorites you keep watching. Time to see what's sticking starting with....

The Starting Line.

With the Iowa Caucus disposed of, many of us believe if Mike Huckabee would host The American Bible Challenge. Well, the new project came in 2011 by administration  change and  Mike was in the middle of the second presidential run at the time.

This came via article:

However, he turned it down. In his place: Jeff Foxworthy. If Mike had hosted, the show would be a disaster at the start, but with Jeff in tow, 3 seasons was all he got. In conclusion, if you pick a politician to play game show host, don't. After all, a stand-up comic who wants to be a game show host like Ben Gleib can be the perfect example.

Don't get unstuck. After this, what GSN is planning for Valentine's Day. Stick Around, because.....I don't know.
(song fades out)
Looks like Quasimodo rang the bell to signal the 2nd period start.
What will you be doing this Valentine's Day? Taking your sweetie to dinner or.....watching GSN with your sweetheart in tow? Because on 2/14....
"On Sunday February 14th, from 6:00pm to 11:00pm EST, we will be airing episodes of Family Feud (Harvey) that feature love, relationship and marriage themed questions."
Say what now? It seems that GSN wants to air yet another marathon of Family Feud. You know why? Because they're too lazy to think another show to marathon on? Where is Love Connection? Where is classic Dating & Newlywed Game? Why is GSN doing too much of Harvey? Is this an attempt to make money? I think a Love Connection weekend marathon would've worked in our favors. The press letter we got in the newsroom reads:
Each of the 10 specially selected half-hour shows features questions designed to remind viewers about dating, romance and the ones they love the most, on the most romantic holiday of the year.  Harvey elicits impromptu and often hilarious answers to questions like: “Name something a man would be holding that a woman would find sexy,” “Name something you open for a night of romance,” “Name a place where a cheap date might take you” and “Name a reason why a woman would turn down a date with a gorgeous guy.” 
Yawn. Maybe a poem can lighten things up.

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

Adam Lentz says this....

"I don't understand this. Feud regularly airs on Sunday nights from 6 to 11 pm. There is love questions galore ever since Harvey has taken over. My idea would have been something like when they did their battle of the divorced couples week when Karn and O Hurley hosted. This is dumb. I just wonder how this marathon will do on Valentine's Day seeing how its up against the premiere of Walking Dead and The NBA All Star Game.

I don't know why, but I'm interested to see the ratings for Harvey Feud from 6-11 pm on February 7th, where the Super Bowl is scheduled. I bet it'll take a chunk out of their audience."

The Super Bowl crushes away at Harvey Feud obviously, but let's see if they stack up against the Walking Dead premiere and the NBA ASG. Another commenter says....

"It's clear GSN is only in search of bigger ratings at this point, because they just slap a new bumper on the same old Steve Harvey episodes and say "Look, a Family Feud marathon!".

It's lazy to the extreme, and an indictment of how stupid and easily placated their audience is. How many times can you see the same old stuff and be entertained by it? How bad are the rest of GSN's shows if Family Feud is the only thing they ever seem to marathon?"

And how long will another marathon that doesn't involve Feud break the jinx?

Now we get the gift of gab from you fans. I want your hearts being thrown out to GSN fans. Let's see what messages you receive in.....

Say what you want to say.

Randy Rudge kicks it off with....

"When is The Chase coming back on the air? Steampunked and Skin wars stink! How can they be considered game shows? Bring back the Chase soon!"

We don't know when the Chase will return yet, but we'll let you know once it turns out. Michelle Schabel has this....

"This station is so ridiculous airing the same commercials over and over again...every break. Get some employees with imaginations.....thank goodness for the remote to change the channel."

Yep. It's like watching a subchannel or syndication. Here's Rachel Hockemy Hayes.

"We used to watch GSN all the time. It was pretty much the only channel we watched. We stopped having cable for a few years, and just recently got it back. We were stoked to have GSN again...until we found that you air Family Feud 10 hours a day (yes, I counted), and even overwrite programs that we DVR with Family Feud so that we have an unpleasant surprise when we watch our DVR. We want more reruns of the classics, like Match Game, Card Sharks, or Press Your Luck, plus more of the newer programming that you guys are having, like The Chase, Baggage, and Hellevator."

Yes, we definitely want more. Babo Cabazo says....

"Picking up King of the Nerds would be very interesting. There is a lot of fan angst since TBS cancelled it, and the numbers weren't that bad. With the success of the comic based shows expanding in both movies and TV, and renewed interest in Star Wars and Star Trek, it would be a statement that complements Skin Wars and future cosplay ventures."

That would be a great acquisition. Perry Skinner will end it with....

"Were contestants and their supporters on Deal or No Deal naturally stupid or greedy? Just caught the end of an episode where the contestant had 20 seconds to either take the deal or not, never seen that before, it was the shows 200th episode. This stupid contestant turns down $225,000 just to open the largest amount left on the board and then takes a $72,000 deal. I would've taken nearly a quarter of a million in a heartbeat!! Stupid people!!!"

If you don't like DOND, change it elsewhere.

(song stops)

Now the 2nd intermission presented by For the 3rd year in a row, it's Lindsey Stirling appreciation month. In the past year, she has written a book and did Snapchat. But that didn't stop her from touring and making music, like this one....

Now the 3rd period.

That famous scene in turn inspired a game show hosted by William Shatner, and was the first game show to get pulled after a few shows. ABC wanted 6, but instead got 5. Plus, it had dancers.....yes, dancers with money amounts attached to them by answering questions in 3 parts to a word or phrase. However, after the disaster came glory for 3 dancers. Yesenia Adame was the caller on ABC's National Bingo Night, the predecessor to Bingo America, Eve Torres would become a former WWE diva and Julianne Hough will forever be associated with Dancing With The Stars. Not a bad way to start your career with it, huh?

 The time bomb hath exploded. Today's blog is presented by exploding mail trucks. Making it look like a summer blockbuster.
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 leave you now with our GSN Soda Girl Christa Nannos to get February started. Play on, playas.

Overtime #26: Should've said yes

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

Me: Welcome to the very first and I said the very first, Overtime of 2016. GSN in 2015 had its moments. Lie Detectors......Baggage on The Road......Skin Wars.....but we wanted to know what GSN should've did last year. Taken from GSNN BlogSpot page, here are a few examples.

The Chase and Baggage On The Road would have been renewed at the March upfronts. The Chase would have gotten twenty hour-long episodes and then forty half-hour episodes for Baggage On The RoadSkin Wars: Fresh Paint would also have been granted a seven hour-long episode order at the upfronts rather than a special.

If SW: Fresh Paint did the 7 instead of a special, it would've been another story. Also, The Chase & BOTR would've had a long season.

*Baggage On The Road Season 2 would have premiered Wednesday, June 10th at 8pm ET, leading into Skin Wars at 9pm ET then Idiotest at 10pm and 10:30pm ET. 20 episodes (half) of Baggage On The Road would have aired from June 10th-August 12th as lead-in to Skin Wars.

It was ratings that killed it. MOAM, anyone?

*Man Versus Fly never would have made it to air.

In fact, Door 3 would've stayed alive had it been for more Lauren Elise and more Sarah Whittle which I will talk about in March.

*Hellevator would have premiered Wednesday, October 7th from 8-10pm ET (two hour premiere) and would have aired Wednesdays at 8pm ET through November 18th. The 25 remaining episodes of Idiotest would have resumed Wednesdays at 10pm and 10:30pm ET starting October 7th and ending Wednesday, January 6th (one week hiatus on 11/25).

It would've ushered in Halloween month and gave kudos to the Soskia Sisters making what would've been ratings gold.

Super Password would have returned to the 11am and 11:30am ET morning slots. Shop 'Til You Drop and Catch 21 never would have been put in mornings. Pre-1990's would have filled the entire 8am-12pm ET block.

Had $ale and Pyramid stay here, everything would've been fine.

*The remaining ten episodes of The Chase would have been cycled through from July 16-September 17 Thursdays at 8pm ET, with the first twenty episodes of Chain Reaction as lead-out. Chain Reaction would go on hiatus after Thursday, September 17th.

Think about that. And finally....

*The first two seasons of Hollywood Game Night would have been acquired, which accumulates to a little over two dozen hour-long episodes. These would have filled at least an hour of primetime slots on both Mondays and Fridays, instead of tireless Idiotest, The Newlywed Game and Family Feud reruns.

That way, it would've been less Steve and more Jane.

So with that, Overtime is a wrap. See you in February with more things you should know. Play on, Playas.

Who wants a Triple Donut pie?

(Are you upset about not getting what you want for Christmas? Well, lets you pick your plan, and make every month feel like Christmas morning all at Sign up 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: Hello friends. This is the blog all about GSN. GSN gives you something special once you turn it on. Everyone belongs to a special elite group known as the "Know-It-Alls." Their passion and love for the network makes them grow to spread the message to everyone who wants to watch it. You'll feel all special inside once you're hooked on it. And if you're already special when you first saw it a long time ago, then you already are. Let's see what specialties we have this week in.....

 The Starting Line.

Let's explain the reasoning and logic behind the current GSN schedule. Keep in mind our blog is analyzing and gathering feed back for each sequence starting with.....

8:00am: Match Game
8:30am: Match Game
9:00am: Card Sharks (Eubanks)
9:30am: Card Sharks (Perry)
10:00am: Press Your Luck (80's)
Match Game has become the cornerstone of GSN since it all began and in fact, it's start to the program day has been there since 2011. The recent change brought in the burden once let go by $ale & Pyramid last year and the Catch 21/STYD deal went nowhere with morning viewers to give 2 classics all in the work of a day.
10:30am: The $25,000 Pyramid
11:00am: Whammy! (GSN)
11:30am: Whammy! (GSN)
12:00pm: Deal or No Deal (NBC)
1:00pm: Deal or No Deal (NBC)
Whammy! retains its staying power by being on & off the schedule for years and for a while, the Harvey Feud took in the Noon eastern slot but NBC DOND is having a good way right now.
2:00pm: Catch 21
2:30pm: The Pyramid (GSN)
3:00pm: Chain Reaction (Lane)
3:30pm: Chain Reaction (Lane)
4:00pm: Family Feud (Harvey)
4:30pm: Family Feud (Harvey)
5:00pm: Family Feud (Harvey)
5:30pm: Family Feud (Harvey)
It seems that Chain Reaction is becoming a high-rated afternoon hit, but The Pyramid is still churning out 38 shows. Feud, however is getting it's due as the highest-rated show on the network.
6:00pm: Family Feud (Harvey)
6:30pm: Family Feud (Harvey)
7:00pm: Family Feud (Harvey)
7:30pm: Family Feud (Harvey)
8:00pm: Idiotest [Monday-Friday]
8:30pm: Idiotest [Monday-Friday]
It's no wonder that Idiotest reruns have a niche to it's young adult viewers to be the lead-out from the Feud. If they keep it up, it would mean a 3rd season could get here faster.
9:00pm: Family Feud (Harvey) [Monday-Friday]
9:30pm: Family Feud (Harvey) [Monday-Friday]
10:00pm: Family Feud (Harvey) [Monday-Friday]
10:30pm: Family Feud (Harvey) [Monday-Friday]
11:00pm: The Chase [Monday/Wednesday/Friday]; Chain Reaction (Catherwood) [Tuesday/Thursday]
This is where the after prime time viewing begins. Feud is getting more viewers. Bar none, but repeats of Chase & Chain have their way on it.
So there you have it. Any more reasons?
Something new for this year. I introduce what's on Overtime this Friday. This week, what GSN should've been doing in 2015. Join us for that.
(song stops)
Every last Wednesday of the month, we give our readers a special treat. It's our Yay & Yawn of January.
The Yay: Chain Reaction earning over 10 grand in one night.
The Yawn: Skin Wars & Idiotest tricking the viewers to move elsewhere. Any reason why?

Hang on. We'll return with a moment to live by. All this and more of the kazoo that you do so a few seconds.
(song fades out)
Time to draw the line as we as we underline the headlines on GTK.
Skin Wars gets a premiere change, but it will be in.....April. Two of our Twitter followers saw on-air promos for GSN now advertising the Season 3 premiere of Skin Wars to premiere in April.  No word yet on when the actual date will premiere. The 2 twitter heads with credit were:
And then there were 4. The finalists in the classics bracket over at the GSNN BlogSpot page are:
Super Password
Sale of the Century

The $100,000 Pyramid
Family Feud (Dawson)

These polls will expire in two weeks on 2/9/2016 and will be then narrowed down to one poll shortly after. Gone do it.
Quick housecleaning note: GSN says they will air special episodes of Steve Harvey Family Feud on Sunday, February 14th from 6-11pm ET that feature love, relationship and marriage-themed questions.
Now the 2nd intermission presented by Which indie artist has recently been nominated for the Grammy Awards this year?
Time's up. Christina Custode. The New York State native is nominated for these categories.....
“Best New Artist”
“Song of the Year”
“Best Pop Solo Performance”
“Record of the Year”
“Best Arrangement, Instrumental & Vocals” (with Stuart Epps)
She also does a nifty little vlog called Tea & Talk. Here's one of them....
But now it's time to take a sip of tea while you watch
 this song from Christina herself....and here it is.....
Come hell or high water, it's the 3rd period.
Something unusual happened on Jeopardy! this month. 2 returning champions and 1 challenger. On to final Jeopardy! The title of this week's blog is the subject of today's....A Moment to Live By.
Thanks for being on GSN The Know this week. Please don't drink & drive, because you never know when you might not attack your Uber or Lyft driver with an inflatable toy you got from some carnival or fair. Just don't do it. I'm just saying.

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'll see you later and play on, playas.
