And Across America.....and the world.........this is..............

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

Me: Thank you Madi2TheMax and this of course is  Game show Live! As live as it gets, as live as it happens and as live whenever you feel like it. Let's get into it with......

 The Opening Toss-Up story.

Our (three-month) long national nightmare is over... and it's time to get back to work. Three syndicated game shows and one app are celebrating new seasons today.
After several fallow years, the first-run syndication market is poised for a shot of adrenaline in 2019. The next two weeks will bring more national launches — seven — than any year since 2011, when Oprah Winfrey still had her daytime show.
Three talk shows — fronted by music star and The Voice judge Kelly Clarkson, former NBC News anchor Tamron Hall and best-selling author and speaker Mel Robbins — two game shows and two court shows, one starring Jerry Springer, are on tap. They're debuting in a time where linear ratings for broadcast shows are on the wane, and in a crowded field: There are more than 40 first-run syndicated shows set to air in 2019-20.
The syndication market also tends to heavily favor long-running shows: Of the 10 most watched first-run syndicated shows last season, only one, court show Hot Bench, has been on the air for less than 15 years (it debuted in 2014).
The people behind the shows told The Hollywood Reporter they're optimistic about their chances to make a dent in a landscape that hasn't been very hospitable to new series in recent years.

- FUNNY YOU SHOULD ASK (season 3, today): On the panel for the first week of shows in the new season are Jon Lovitz, Sherri Shepherd, Louie Anderson, Byron Allen, Jodi Miller, and Jamie Kennedy
- JEOPARDY! (season 36, today): after six weeks of reruns, Jason Zuffranieri returns to defend his title and add to his $137,300 in the first episodes taped since Alex Trebek's cancer diagnosis fight began.
- WHEEL OF FORTUNE (season 37, today): The new year begins with Teachers Week and a big change: no more 1/2 Cars on the Wheel, and a new twist - a Triple Toss-up.
- HQ TRIVIA (season 6): It's Back to School on the granddaddy of 'em all. Levels and points are reset as the app continues to experiment with new game types and offer new prizes - including rewards based on how long you've been playing. Everyone will be sorted into a "class" - freshman through seniors - and the "class" with the most points at the end of the week gets "special prizes". There's also a prize for "perfect attendance"- playing every game. . Meanwhile, on HQ Sports, winners will be automatically entered into an All-Star Game to be held at the end of the season. Additionally, anyone who correctly answers Question 8 will also be invited to participate.
- 25 WORDS OR LESS (September 16): After a three-week trial run on nine Fox-owned stations in 2018, the Meredith Vieira-hosted show (produced by Dino Bones Productions) is going national with clearances in more than 90 percent of the country. Stephen Brown, executive vp programming and development at Fox TV Stations, said the tryout helped make the case for the show's wider launch. The week ends with Apollo Crews "and a ton of WWE Superstars".
- AMERICA SAYS (September 16): A syndicated rebroadcast of the Game Show Network's primetime original, America Says was a late addition to the syndicated pool this season with a deal struck in June. Host John Michael Higgins presides over both versions of the show, which will feature the same gameplay and stakes.
- FAMILY FEUD (September 16): No big changes planned for syndication's #1 game show, but Fremantle is going to take it on the road as a live tour.

Just ahead,  DWTS makes a lot of changes. See why, but first......

Dancing with the Stars is introducing a new voting system this fall for the show's upcoming 28th season. Dancing with the Stars viewers are going to have to vote live or vote blind in a short window of time this coming season!
ABC has announced Dancing with the Stars fans will only be able to vote as the live broadcasts air in the Eastern and Central time zones. That means after an episode ends, the viewer voting will too, unlike in previous seasons.
Viewers in the Mountain and Pacific time zones will still also be able to vote for their favorites; however, they must vote during the same period of time as Eastern and Central time zone viewers, which means they'll probably have to vote without being able to actually watch the dance routines first.
There will also be no home-viewer votes tabulated during the first week of performances when Dancing with the Stars' 28th season premieres live on Monday, September 16 at 8PM ET/PT. During the first week of competition, only judges' scores will matter.
As previously announced, the new Dancing with the Stars season will be judged by Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman.
Live voting on and via text will commence with Week 2 of the Dancing with the Stars season.


Dancing with the Stars has not waltzed into a good start after Christie Brinkley was forced to exit from the show after breaking her arm during rehearsals.
However, good news for Brinkley fans is that she has been replaced by her daughter, Sailor Brinkley-Cook, a Sports Illustrated model.
Brinkley's injury comes as the show is set to debut on ABC tonight at 8 pm.
"Showbiz is all about getting a break, and Sailor and I both got one on Dancing with the Stars this season," said a punning Christie Brinkley. "Sailor joined the cast when I got mine … ouch somebody stop me, it hurts to laugh."
An ABC spokeswomen said, "While rehearsing for the premiere of Dancing with the Stars, Christie Brinkley suffered injuries which required surgery to her wrist and arm. She is unable to continue her planned participation on the show. Keeping it all in the family, her daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook, has chosen to quickly step in with hours to learn the entire routine and will compete in her mother's place for the remainder of the season. We wish Christie a full and speedy recovery and look forward to seeing her in the audience, whenever possible, proudly supporting Sailor."
Brinkley-Cook will be joined in the 28th season of the reality competition series by Sean Spicer, The Office's Kate Flannery, James Van Der Beek, ex-Supreme Mary Wilson, NBA champ Lamar Odom and The Bachelorette's Hannah Brown.

Ten-time Grammy Award winner and record-breaking global pop icon Taylor Swift will serve as the Mega Mentor on Season 17 of NBC's four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series "The Voice."
Coaches John Legend and Blake Shelton made the announcement on Instagram and Twitter today.
As "The Voice" Mega Mentor, Taylor will join coaches Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani to mentor the artists and prepare each team for the Knockout Rounds, which will begin airing in late October.
During the Knockout Rounds, the artists will be paired with a teammate and select their own songs to perform individually.
Taylor will be on hand to work with all four coaches and their teams to provide feedback, suggestions and praise as the artists prepare for their performance. The coaches alone will choose the winner, and the artist not selected will be available to be stolen by another coach. They are vying for their coach's confidence and decision to take them to the final and crucial round before the Live Performance Shows, the Live Playoffs.
This season each coach will only have one steal in the Knockout Rounds, making the stakes higher than ever for the artists. Taylor previously served as the Mega Mentor on Season 7 of "The Voice." She also performed her chart-topping single "ME!" ft. Brendon Urie of Panic! At the Disco on the Season 16 finale of "The Voice" earlier this year.
"The Voice" premieres Monday, Sept. 23 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT) on NBC. .

This fall, swolemates bring the heat to Paramount Network when the all-new competition series, Battle of the Fittest Couples premieres on Tuesday, October 15 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Battle of the Fittest Couples takes ripped couples and puts them through an intense competition that not only tests them on their physical and mental toughness, but how they work together as a team.
Hosted by real life couple, former Bachelorette, JoJo Fletcher and former NFL Quarterback Jordan Rodgers these two are no strangers to the competition world.
"We are so excited to be hosting, Battle of the Fittest Couples! We love working out as a couple, through doing so, we have learned so much about each other, and it has strengthened our relationship," says JoJo Fletcher. "Not only is this a physical competition, but it's about partnership and our goal is to have every couple leave this competition stronger both emotionally and physically," says Jordan Rodgers.
In Battle of the Fittest Couples, 12 of the toughest and most competitive couples battle their way through grueling, physical and mental main event challenges that will put every ounce of their athleticism to the test. The losing couple is automatically put up for elimination and the winning couple gets to call the shots on choosing another couple to send with them into the "Rage Cage." The ruthless rivals will then battle it out in a head-to-head brawl where one team will prevail and the other, sent home.
Through every episode, physical limits are pushed, alliances are made, and relationships are tested. In the end only one couple will win $100,000 and be named "Fittest Couple." .

On to this streaming news item.

Making its first move into the key unscripted space, HBO Max, the upcoming direct-to-consumer offering from WarnerMedia set to launch in the spring of 2020, has ordered two original unscripted series, Legendary and The Greatest Space (working title) straight to series.
Legendary will be serving up 10 episodes of all body and face, with no shade. In this show, divas will battle on voguing teams called "houses," with the chance to win a cash prize in ballsy fashion and dance challenges to ultimately achieve "Legendary" status. Voguing is a competitive style of modern dance featuring over-the-top fashion and choreography based on poses struck by models on a catwalk. Legendary will feature 10 voguing "houses," each comprised of five performers and a leader - the house "parent." The teams rotate in a round-robin format, and each episode documents a themed ball from start to finish. They Walk. They Serve. They Live to Slay.
The Greatest Space (wt), a 10-episode epic design competition show, will feature interior designers traveling around the world to transform an eclectic mix of empty rooms into spectacular spaces. In each one-hour episode, pairs of professional designers will head out on a country-hopping adventure, traveling to a new city in search of their canvas. Along the way, challenges will force them to lift directly from some of the most glamorous, audacious and ambitious rooms all around the world. From ballrooms to bedrooms to treehouses and everything in between, competitors battle to win the judges' favor. High stakes, surprises, language barriers and exotic locales await these designers, along with unpredictable eliminations. But, if they can hold on, the dwindling designers will gain access to larger, more surprising and more imaginative spaces, in pursuit of a substantial cash prize.
"Unscripted programming will be an incredibly important component of our HBO Max originals, and this is just the beginning of our venture into this space. These two initial shows will transport audiences to underground worlds and take them on visually stunning, exotic adventures, equaled only by the compelling stories of each contestant," said Sarah Aubrey, head of original content, HBO Max. "We couldn't have more accomplished teams behind both of these shows. From the innovative and award-winning storytellers at both Scout and Bertram van Munster's New Media Collective, we are reimagining the unscripted competition genre."

I love a trivia app. I love to see and hear somebody play trivia. With those apps, they carry me away, and there's only a finer way to treat them and love them. I love to touch my fingers to where the right answer leads, and with the questions, I go mental from with people from LA to Broadway, and those push notifations get me invited to see a college graduate play, so enough with that controller, because I'm ready to tell the truth about the apps that let me stop right where you are and battle, Because it's.....

Supermarket Sweep was back tonight (September 11) with host Rylan Clark-Neal helping the newest crop of shoppers go wild in the aisles.
But as much as viewers are enjoying the new series, it hasn't gone unnoticed that there is a very specific age demographic of the contestants, and it hasn't gone down very well.
One person tweeted: "What's with all these young people on #SupermarketSweep? When are we gonna see middle age people or OAPs on the show?"
Another wrote: "I haven't watched much of this new #SupermarketSweep but one thing I've noticed is that every contestant is the same kind of person in their 20s. I get that it's ITV2 and that's kind of their demographic but is there any need to full on exclude anyone nearing the age of 40??"
Digital Spy has reached out to the ITV2 show for comment.

ITV bosses have come up with a plan to help Paul “The Sinnerman” Sinha stay on quiz show The Chase while he is battling Parkinson’s.
Those with the condition suffer tremors and slowness of movement. In every show, one of the Chasers walks on and takes their seat at the top of the ‘‘cash builder’’ ladder.
Fellow Chaser Mark “The Beast” Labbett said: “Paul will still be doing The Chase. There are plans afoot if the worst comes to the worst for how to deal with moving him down the set.
“If he has problems walking we will literally show him walking once. That is courtesy.”
Mark added: “His mind is still great. He won the British quiz championships at the weekend.”

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino can once again hit the gym, do his laundry and tan on his own time, after the “Jersey Shore” star was released from federal prison on Thursday morning. Sorrentino had been locked up since January after pleading guilty to one charge of tax evasion in 2018.
“We are elated to finally close this chapter of our life. Thank you to our family, friends and fans for the continuous love and support during this time, it brought us so much peace and comfort,” a spokesperson for Sorrentino told NBC News.
Sorrentino, alongside his brother, Marc Sorrentino, was accused of falsifying tax returns on about $9 million in income. Prosecutors said one trick the brothers used was to deposit slightly less than $10,000 at a time into their back accounts, allowing them to skirt reporting income to the IRS. Marc Sorrentino plead guilty to one count of aiding the preparation of a fraudulent tax return and sentenced to two years in prison.

The school season has just begun for most students and we've recruited our Game Show Live! kid reporter Ella Scott to give us her back to school haul in her home. Ella, please.

Stop the!

Cameron Mathison has been diagnosed with kidney cancer and will undergo surgery this Thursday to remove a tumor, he announced on Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family, which he co-hosts.
“About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having, and during that MRI they found a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma … or kidney cancer,” the All My Children alum later elaborated on Instagram, alongside a photo of him with Vanessa, his wife if 17 years, and their children Lucas and Leila.
“The good news” is that perhaps as credit to his “healthy lifestyle and diet,” Mathison reported that the cancer had not spread to anywhere else in his body, despite the kidney tumor appearing to be about 10 years in the making. “I am extremely lucky that we found it early,” he said.
With surgery scheduled for Sept. 12, Mathison is “hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with.”

Chrissy Teigen addresses her recent Twitter contretemps with President Donald Trump on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, saying with a resigned, “We all just wait for our day to come and mine happened to be on Sunday.” 
“My heart stopped because at that moment you know you’re just about to get the wildest group of people ever” responding on social media, Teigen tells DeGeneres on the episode airing today.

Trump lashed out at Teigen and husband John Legend after seeing Legend discussing criminal justice reform on MSNBC. Apparently feeling he wasn’t getting credit due, Trump blasted Legend as a “boring musician” and Teigen, who was not part of the MSNBC broadcast, as Legend’s “filthy mouthed wife.”

In a response that quickly began trending, Teigen responded, “lol what a ------ ---- -----. tagged everyone but me. an honor, mr. president.”
On today’s Ellen, Teigen laughs about the situation, saying she’s “still working on how to copyright” her much-retweeted phrase that sometimes gets shortened to a family-friendlier “PAB.”
Teigen says she couldn’t initially read Trump’s tweet because the president had already blocked her from his account, but she started getting phone alerts and screen shots early Sunday.
“I was really angry,” says the Bring the Funny judge. “I think my eyes filled up with water at the shock of it. He just goes on these rants.”

Survive the Prison

Bruce Beresford-Redman, a former producer on reality series Survivor, has been released from a Mexican prison after spending years behind bars in connection with the death of his wife.
The TV producer was convicted in the killing of his wife MΓ³nica Burgos during a family vacation with their two children in 2010. Her naked and beaten body was found in a septic tank at a Cancun resort, on what would have been her 42nd birthday.
Investigators said at the time that Burgos died following a violent confrontation with her husband, and the case made international headlines.
Beresford-Redman, now 48, maintained his innocence throughout the investigation. In a 48 Hours television special, he insisted he’d done nothing wrong.

Kids........look at this:

The PAL-y in question is one belonging to internet star Ali Spagnola, but they're proud to have that 4k milestone. In honor of that, they did giant spin art. If you think a Spirograph makes creativity grow, check this out.

We spin to the next story.

Sorry, Steve Harvey.

It’s a hot start for the ladies in a crowded daytime syndicated talk show field. NBCUniversal’s Kelly Clarkson premiered yesterday to a 1.9 household rating across primary runs in the metered markets. That marks the highest debut rating for a first run syndicated show in seven years, since September 2012 when Katie Couric’s Katie and Steve Harvey opened with a 2.8 and 1.5 HH rating, respectively.
Kelly got a lot of attention when her first scheduled guest, Kevin Hart, had to pull out after a car accident and pal Dwayne Johnson stepped in to replace him and provide an update on his condition. The show, which also featured Steve Carell introducing the American Idol winner and The Voice coach, improved +36% over lead-in and +73% over the year ago (Sept. 2018) time period.
That time period is 2 PM, leading to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, on most NBC stations that aired Steve Harvey‘s successor, Steve, in the hour before replacing it with Kelly Clarkson.
In the target Women 25-54 demo, Kelly averaged a 0.8 rating, the best debut mark in five years with a +33% increase over lead-in and a 100% increased versus September 2018.

RuPaul’s Drag Race is sashaying its way into the Las Vegas strip with RuPaul’s Drag Race Live! at the iconic stage in the Flamingo Las Vegas. Host and creator of the Emmy Award-winning VH1 series unveiled the news of the residency today at RuPaul’s DragCon NYC convention show floor. The show is slated to death drop onto the Las Vegas strip in 2020.
The live revue will have all the tea and none of the shade from the TV show (well, maybe some of the shade). Each live performance is packed with outrageous comedy,  tongue-popping looks, campy singing and dancing, some heartwarming moments and other surprises that will leave the audience gagging. The atmosphere of the show is interactive and encourages audience members’ participation, as if they were attending a live episode of the world-famous competition.
Seven queens will be featured in each show including fan favorites and champions from various seasons. The rotating cast will include Aquaria, Asia O’Hara, Coco Montrese, Derrick Barry, Eureka O’Hara, India Ferrah, Kahanna Montrese, Kameron Michaels, Kim Chi, Naomi Smalls, Shannel and Yvie Oddly.
RuPaul Charles and choreographer/filmmaker Jamal Sims (Aladdin, Step Up, When The Beat Drops) are set to direct the show with World of Wonder and Voss events producing. Original music for RuPaul’s Drag Race Live! will be written by RuPaul, RuPaul’s Drag Race composer Leland and Tom Campbell, Chief Creative Officer at World of Wonder. Tickets will be available for purchase starting September 10 at 10am PT.

Todd Palin has filed for divorce from Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate, after 31 years of marriage.
In a document filed Friday in Anchorage, Alaska, Superior Court, Todd Palin cites an “incompatibility of temperament” in his marriage to Sarah Palin “such that they find it impossible to continue to live together as husband and wife.” The divorce filing and court records use only initials to refer to the pair, with Todd Mitchell Palin listed as TMP and Sarah Louise Palin only identified as SLP.
Neither Sarah Palin nor Todd Palin or his lawyer has returned CNN’s requests for comment. The divorce filing was first reported by Alaska blogger Craig Medred.
Friday’s filing includes a child custody jurisdiction affidavit for the family’s youngest child, who is 11. The affidavit is a standard form in divorces in Alaska involving minor children that includes information about children who will be involved in custody proceedings.
Palin served as governor of Alaska from 2006 to 2009 and shot into national prominence in the summer of 2008, when the late Sen. John McCain picked her to be his running mate in the presidential race, which he would eventually lose to Barack Obama.
