Overtime #23: Reality Bites

 


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhoEKp11yCI

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

Me: And it's Overtime, an energy shot in a Ziploc bag. To continue with GSN's 20th birthday celebration, GSN had a share of reality programming here and there, but here are 2 hosts that each had a reality show.

1. Carnie Wilson: Unstapled





One of the members of the 90's pop group Wilson Phillips, this host of the Newlywed Game in its first 3 seasons did a reality show based on the struggles of her life in & out of the camera. However, she got fired for....being too fat. I wonder why. The other one...


2. Chuck Woolery: Naturally Stoned




What can you say about this show? It didn't hurt his tenture as one of 2 hosts of Lingo on the network, but his rapping in a commercial? Well.....I'll let Ben Gleib handle this face:


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
There you have it. Ate the plate and have to get a fresh one next month full of GSN goodness. No skipping. Play on playas.

Full Steampunk Ahead

(CiCi's Pizza gives you more than just pizza. It gives you salads, pastas and breadsticks. What more can you ask for? Go to Cici's Pizza today and see what all the buzz is about.)



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: Boys & girls, I want to tell you this. When you think of turning on GSN, it's like a fall festival mixed in with a renisannce fair with Lollapalooza all in one. Your remote asks you to be there. Plenty of great hosts, funny contestants and outrageous moments on your TV. Take it from us, you might see Gene Rayburn, Peter Tomarken and those pesky whammies, Bob Eubanks and Jim Perry feeding the Card Sharks, Todd Newton, Howie Mandel, or the tandem of Beast & Brooke. You might try Ben Gleib and his gang of idiots, Jerry Springer, or Rebecca Romijn with her judging panel. maybe you should see Jeannie Mai or even Dick Clark taking the Pyramids on up. How about Dylan Lane & Mike Catherwood bonded together in chains? As if it wasn't enough, you could take on the 3 faces of Feud led by their chief survey taker, Steve Harvey. There's nothing like a GSN game party, let's get it started. To do that....


The Starting Line.


Who won Skin Wars? I will tell it to you.





With the finals underway, they started with foot-illusion paintings. Avi started it off with a hummingbird and Lana made koi fish and finally Aryn with a bat. Avi hit a homerun with that challange, but for the final challenge, all 3 made smoething nice. Lana made a blue crab, Avi made a chameleon and Aryn made a butterfly. And the winner goes to..............Lana! And they all lived happilly ever after.
 
THE END
 
 
(song stops)
 
 
 
Now it's time to pick who is getting chopped and who deserves a fresh one. It's the Yay & Yawn of August.
 
 
The Yay: Lana Chronium. She joins Natalie Fletcher as 2 women who won Skin Wars.
 
The Yawn: Man V Fly. It killed Idiotest in viewership, not to mention the format. Even Ben Gleib did his best as a sportscaster.
 
 
So, what did we think of Steampunk'd? That answer after this brief intermission.
 
 
(song fades out)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Oh, you're back. I was getting leftover pizza and iced tea from the kitchen alias concession stand while you were gone. Let's talk Steampunk'd. It was the latest offering GSN came up with and a review haiku is in short order.
 
 
IT'S JUST LIKE SKIN WARS
BUT WITH A STEAMPUNK FORMAT
GAME MEETS GIRL LIKES IT
 
 
(song stops)
 
 
Now, I want to give you the first episode in a story, but it would be a bore to you. So to liven it up, I decided to give it to you....in a limerick. Each week, I'll recap the show using that type of poem until a winner is crowned. And away we go.
 
 
 
 
 
There one was a host named Jeannie Mai,
Who looked sexy & fly,
her love was Steampunk,
and it was hers to flunk,
So she brought in 10 people, but why?
 
 
The 10 decided to go to the kitchen not for a snack,
Because from before, it feels so wack,
They needed a breakfast device,
to make it look nice,
Now there's something they want right back.
 
 
So there was one team of Blue,
Yep, you heard me, it's true.
It consisted of Ms. morgan,
Lady Hawk not playing an organ,
Tobias, Charles and J.....W.
 
 
Another team consisted of Red
Steampunk Eddie was the head
Tayliss, James and
Ave and Karianne
didn't want to put this challenge to bed.
 
After that, Ave won the whole sink,
And Miss Morgan was 2nd in the link,
But with J.W. on danger,
it was no stranger,
Tobias got himself a slip of pink.
 
 
(song stops)
 
ANd that's just it.
 
 
I hired Autumn Brand from Season & Snare and she asked 3 more string players to help us in.....
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
For the August-September transition week.....
 
 
*A Skin Wars: Fresh Paint rerun will air Monday at 2am; replacing Baggage
*A Steampunk'd rerun (from 8/26) will air Wednesday at 8pm; replacing Skin Wars: Fresh Paint
*Steve Harvey Family Feud will air Wednesday at 11pm and 11:30pm (where Skin Wars: Fresh Paint had a rerun for one week).
*Steve Harvey Family Feud will air Thursday at 12am and 12:30am (where Skin Wars: Fresh Paint had a rerun for one week).
*The Newlywed Game will return to Friday latenight at 1am and 1:30am; replacing Family Feud
*Baggage will return to Saturday latenight at 2am and 2:30am
*Family Feud (Karn) returns to Sunday at 12pm and 12:30pm (where Skin Wars: Fresh Paint had a rerun)

Additionally, Steampunk'd, Idiotest, The Chase and Chain Reaction all continue in their respective new run slots on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
 
 
So expect plenty of Feud whenever the SK special airs this week. Even Karn gets a repreive. 2 more changes shocked us all.....
 
 
*GSN's Whammy! will air weekdays at 11:30am; replacing Deal or No Deal. GSN's Whammy! now has a double run in the 11am hour each weekday.
*Dog Eat Dog will air weekdays at 4pm (except Wednesday, where there is a Steampunk'd rerun); replacing Deal or No Deal
 
 
Now why is DOND leaving? Well, it looks like the expiration date is up on the Howie Mandel-hosted program. That is both the NBC version and its syndie counterpart. But why DED? It's already been rerun-abused. Can't they come up with Camouflage, Woolery Lingo, Russian Roulette, Cram, Friend or Foe or Millionaire to make it better? And why is GSN trynig to get something from the vaults to make it better? Were they running out of something to get a show that is 2 seasons old back in form? Gee whiz.
 
 
(song stops)
 
 
Let's end it with.....
 
 

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

Carni-Poll.  Where it's like Rec Room in Memphis, but without the alcohol. First.....
 
 
Will you watch 'Skin Wars: Fresh Paint' this Wednesday on GSN?
 
80% don't think so.
 
 
Which will get additional seasons?
 
41% think Skin Wars over Steampunk'd.
 
If 'Idiotest' does get a third season, should GSN find a new host?
 
75% think they want to hire Paula Rhodes or somebody else to get Ben Gleib the heave-ho.
 
 
Last question:
 
 
Who is the better host of the GSN 'Chain Reaction' revivals?
 
Sorry Dylan, Psycho Mike is what the fans like.
 
 
(song stops)
 
 
Now the 2nd intermission presnted by swagbucks.com. Stephanie Pressman is with us today. Born in Atlanta, she has had a showbiz career even when she took off for LA. You've seen her in Stalking Levar, or as a contestant on Geeks Who Drink for SyFy. More likely, she's the host for Geek 360 on thestream.tv. She's the brains behind Fashionably Nerdy, but what you don't know about her is....she sings. She's what you call a junior product of Lisa Loeb and with this Flight Facilities cover, she will prove it to you.
 
 
 
 
 
Here's something else you crave. The third period.
 
 
It's coming up on 3 months of Buzzr and since then, Buzzr shows you nothing but Fremantle programming. But when you ask them for something outside Fremantle to make the channel grow, I'll give you this poem David Downs wrote while I was on Facebook. So give me Lena Thomas on bass, Shira Lazar on bongos and Sonya Belousova on the grand piano. Ladies, please.....
 
 
Buzzr is a channel
Full of classic game show fun.
But there are some shows...
They simply can't rerun.

They can't rerun Wheel
Or Jeopardy with Trebek.
Unless they suddenly decide
To cut Sony a big, fat check.

Same goes for Joker's Wild
Tic Tac Dough, too.
Sony is so stingy
They even block them on Youtube.

So forget about Play The Percentages,
Bullseye, or Break The Bank.
But I don't need to remind you
Who you need to thank.

Want to see Newlywed Game?
Dating Game? Gong Show?
I hate to tell you this,
But Chuck Barris' library Is also in Sony's tow.

What about Pyramid, you say?
Hate to break this to you.
But Sony owns the Bob Stewart library
So start crying the blues.

Hollywood Squares isn't owned by Sony
But it isn't by Fremantle, either.
Because they don't own
The library of Merrill Heatter.

Heatter also created High Rollers
All-Star Blitz, and Gambit.
So unless there are negotiations with Fremantle
Don't expect to see...um, it.

But what about that show
That combined HS with Match Game?
Well, that's a no-go, too
 Because ownership isn't the same.

What about Monty Hall shows?
Split Second, for one.
Fremantle only wanted LMAD.
After that, they were done.

Will this clear things up?
I don't know, maybe.
One thing's for sure, though
These people need to quit crying like babies!
 
 

(cameramen, control room and people in back start snapping)

Aww, you guys are nice. And we have to go kids. Today's blog is presented by waitresses. Give them money. They're like charity, so that they can keep their house paid, their car running smoothly, food from the supermarket and most importanly.....some time off.
 
 
Don't forget to email me at kellypierre8@gmail.com, coppockonsports@yahoo.com, Pierre Jason Kelly on FB and @Johnny_Arcade on twitter. We leave you now with Stephanie doing a TV theme song. Play on, playas!

Flying Blindsided

(I tried the Fiery Mango Pizza at Cici's and let me tell you, it is awesome. Stuffed Crust Pizza is what I would recommend, so get on over to Cici's Pizza and try it 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: You are being showered with the goodness GSN has made. Unlike a wedding shower or a baby shower, GSN gives you the gifts of game day & night. We are all wet with the greatest games in the world and let's weather the storm in......


The Starting Line.


He's a subsitute teacher from Michigan.  His name is Chad Mosher. His face has been seen on "Millionaire" and Wheel, but one day, he dissed Scott Rahner of GSNN for......just look at his tweet. His first one was....

"I will encourage you to not follow the GreatGameShows Twitter account from GameShowNetworkNews. Proven liar, identity thief, rabble-rouser."

So why did he call all him that? Well, Scott gets our facts accurate and simple. Nothing fake, nothing gimmicky. He even mentioned it in another tweet which says....


.@AndrewHain1 Big reason why you shouldn't follow GreatGameShows. The account name even used to be "Allison Halslip":  http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1rk024k


That link I'm posting it to you led to a longer tweet he made up. In it, he called him a con & a fraud. I'd say no, he's not one, he is the real deal, Lucille.

It led to a firestorm of comments including this from Casey Abell.....

Chad's fixated on something that happened two years ago. Don't quite know why, but people get fixated on the strangest things sometimes.

"By pure accident I happened to have written today about civility on the game show Interwebs, before I read this post by Scott. I then followed some of the links provided by Chad to the rumpus two years ago, and found much of the usual sputtering rage on Game Show Forum. (Yes, it is what's left of what used to be Matt Ottinger's board.)"


Even he made an article himself on GSF. So my advice to you is ignore what he's saying. Because He & I are real men who are passionate game show fans. Let that be a lesson over social media, the forums and fan sites.




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


In a few, our thoughts on Man Vs. Fly and how it led to one show's big dip. If you don't stay tuned, Kristen Nedopak will sing jazz standards in the rain, while holding an umbrella....and you without one, so stay dry and come back.


(song fades out)












(Quick fade out)


And we're rolling along to keep watching what GSN does what it always does.


Last week, GSN annouced a little short entitled "Man Vs. Fly." I say it's short, because it's a 3-minute interstital. If you don't know what that is, it's a little something to fill up time if there is much time left should a show end early. I decided a haiku would have impressions on it.




https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y36ONQ-NKvw








IT TAKES A MINUTE
TO SWAT THAT PESKY FLY FOR
JUST ONE BENJAMIN




(song stops)






Which led to one show's sudden downfall. Last week, At 10:03pm ET, the new episode of Idiotest drew 362,000 total viewers and 143,000 18-49 viewers, down 3% in total viewers/tied in 18-49 viewers from last week in [nearly] the same timeslot. At 10:38pm ET, the second new Idiotest had a series low (at least in total viewers) 220,000 total viewers and 85,000 18-49 viewers, down 20% in total viewers/down 17% in 18-49 viewers from last week.  Also, Idiotest fell 43% in total viewers and 42% in 18-49 viewers from lead-in Skin Wars. The second episode of Idiotest fell 39% in total viewers and 41% in 18-49 viewers from the 10:03pm Idiotest.

That suddenly led to a pain in the neck for Ben Gleib's show, because of MVF and the involvement of him introducing the program. But yesterday, it led to the consequences.  New runs of Man Versus Fly are no longer. GSN will air a new run tonight (Monday) at 1am ET and a rerun Friday at 2am ET. Man Versus Fly is pulled elsewhere, including its biggest slot, Wednesday nights.

But, Casey Abell of GSF pointed this out on his blog.  


"We have added Man v Fly to the schedule for 8/24 – 8/28. Starting on August 24th and going forward, Man v Fly bouts will always air in the first position of the first commercial break [of whatever show contains the segment]." In other words, GSN is trying to minimize the damage by squeezing in the houseflies where they will be least noticed."




To put it another way, They'll try to flicker this off. After that....it's gone.


Time to make August go classical with some....


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5CaIkzAHyo

House cleaning. This week will go like this.....

*Man Versus Fly will rerun Monday latenight at 1am. The Newlywed Game will air from 1:04am-1:30am.
*On Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, Family Feud will air at 1am and 1:30am; replacing The Newlywed Game.
*Steampunk'd premieres Wednesday at 10pm; replacing IdiotestSkin Wars still reruns at 12am; Steampunk'd will rerun at 1am.
*A new three-minute short of Man Versus Fly will air Wednesday at 11pm after Steampunk'dFamily Feud will air from 11:04pm-11:30pm. 
*The Chase and Chain Reaction continue their new episodes Thursday 8-10pm.
*Steampunk'd will rerun Friday at 11pm; replacing the Skin Wars rerun. Skin Wars will rerun at 12am Friday latenight; replacingFamily Feud.
*Man Versus Fly will rerun Friday at 2am. Baggage On The Road will air from 2:04am-2:30am.
*Steampunk'd will rerun Saturday latenight at 1am; Skin Wars reruns at 2am.
*Steampunk'd will rerun Sunday at 1pm; replacing the Skin Wars rerun. Skin Wars will rerun at 2pm; replacing Baggage On The Road


This would've been the last time MVF will go after Steampunk'd, but the decision this week stays as is. Also, Sherriwed gets trimmed. Haven't they heard enough from her? Expect a lot of Steampunk'd repeats in case they miss it. For next week.....


*The Newlywed Game remains in the 1am hour on Monday latenight.
*Family Feud retains the 1am hour Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; replacing The Newlywed Game (same as August 17-23).
*Family Feud takes the 2am hour Wednesday; replacing Baggage
*Steampunk'd from 8/19 reruns Monday latenight at 3am and Wednesday 4pm.
*Skin Wars: Fresh Paint grabs the Wednesday 8pm timeslot (reruns same night 11pm). Skin Wars: Fresh Paint also reruns Friday 12am, Saturday latenight 2am and Sunday at 12pm (replacing Karn Feud).
*Steampunk'd moves to 9pm for new runs on Wednesday (reruns same night 12am); replacing Skin Wars. Steampunk'd will also rerun Wednesday latenight at 3am; replacingThe Newlywed GameSteampunk'd reruns Friday at 11pm, Saturday latenight at 1am and Sunday at 1pm; all three replacing Skin Wars.
*Idiotest returns in the Wednesday 10pm and 10:30pm slot for new runs (reruns same night 1am)
*Baggage On The Road returns Sunday at 2pm (there was a Steampunk'd rerun there last week).

So once SW crowns a winner, Steampunk'd will get pushed back an hour early. Also, their special will air at 7 CDT.  BOTR will get one return on Sunday.  Idiotest will try and rebound from what happened last week. 

(song stops)

With the semifinals of Skin Wars underway, here's what went down.



 

The Challenge got harder for the final 4 as they tried to create something from baby bumps. They only used a brush & sponge for this challenge. Aryn ended up the winner with the Mother Frog. Everyone hopped to the big challenge in which last season's winner Natalie Fletcher becomes a guest judge. In it, they had to do a nature blend and in the end, Avi won with the farm, but for Cheryl Ann and Lana being the botton 2, they had 1 hour and 30 minutes to create a backdrop of LA on a cityscape. Lana ended up with the victory and Cheryl Ann was gone.   ANd they all lived.....until the next show.
(song stops)


Okay, on to the 2nd intermission presented by swagbucks.com. Anomaly Acoustic August rolls on with Bianca Gisselle. She recently appeared in the LA stage version of "American Idiot," a broadway play based on the rock band Green Day. She now has a new EP entitled "Get Back To Love: Side A." She also has a weekly thing on Youtube called "Music Mondayz." Here is one of them.






And we go to the 3rd period. 


As of today, there are 2 versions of Chain Reaction. I thought I'd contrast them, so let's look at them.





As far as the Dylan Lane version goes, I'll let Game Show Garbage speak for itself.





Now to the Catherwood version.


http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-mN9lKA2mz3M/VVDDmZjCF1I/AAAAAAAAHxU/E3M8t7zqUcs/s1600/1510062_1618255068388736_5257369793111491000_n.jpg




It seems that the version is a step up from the previous version. The Lane version had a Millionaire-lite feel to it. The Catherwood version has a much nicer set. Mike is better at hosting than Dylan has, and unlike Lane is never into obvilion when it gets cancelled. Even the speedchains are gone. No more "build-a-Word-one-at-a-time" bonus game, just a game in which you have to say words to connect to it. So there you have it, Catherwood over Lane any day. Any Day!



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

Time to throw it away, I think. Today's blog is presented by Ingrid Michaelson singing your OKCupid profiles. Proving once again that it's better than Tinder.


Don't forget to email me at kellypierre8@gmail.com, coppockonsports@yahoo.com, Pierre Jason Kelly on FB and @Johnny_Arcade on twitter.  We leave you know with more Bianca Gisselle. Play on playas.

Idiotic Poetry Summerslam

(How do you reward your kids being back at school? With Pizza, of course. Cici's Pizza is your unofficial after school hangout for all the pizza, all the games and all the fun.)



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:  Crank the party capacity to 11, because one flick of the switch to GSN will make you feel like you took a battery acid trip into game show heaven. Whether it's Feud at 2, Feud again at 3 or Catch 21 at 4, the voodoo that GSN does so well will keep you coming back for more. Time to get into it. We begin with....


The Starting Line.


Over the years, there had been many rivalries. Many sports fans know the Lakers vs. Celtics is the obvious, and the cartoon fans believe it's Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd or the Road Runner and Wyle E. Coyote. But ever since Kenny Vs. Spenny, GSN has.......Man vs. Fly.

GSN has acquired the series for 50 programs and John Mate and Pat Cowell (please don't google their names) will call the play-by-play for this epic battle. In it, one man will have 60 seconds to kill a fly for a cash prize. Sounds easy, right? To make things more fair, they bring in a weapon to make the fly go useless. Even the preview speaks for itself.


https://vimeo.com/108765629


And it's all thanks to GSN Sports where Ben Gleib will be in-studio to introduce them in the studio. GSN Sports? Are they thinking a real life version of Rocket League? Anyways, it'll be on tonight and next week, I will provide a review haiku on it. It'll be the only show to make you go.....WTH?


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


After the timeout, something is weird in timeslots on late night. 9 multiplied by 2 is 18, GTK is coming right back.....if you know what I mean.


(song fades out)










(Quick fade out)


12 take away 4 is 8, GSN The Know is back to get our facts straight. 


Bring in the string quartet, it's....



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5CaIkzAHyo

House cleaning. With Man Vs. Fly on the menu, here's what it'll look like....


Wednesday 8/12 primetime and latenight schedule (All Times ET):
8:00pm: Skin Wars (rerun)
9:00pm: Skin Wars (new); an episode of Man Versus Fly airs within the Skin Wars episode
10:03pm: Idiotest (new)
10:34pm: Man Versus Fly (new)
10:38pm: Idiotest (new)
11:09pm: Man Versus Fly (new)
11:13pm: Family Feud
11:44pm: Family Feud 
12:15am: Skin Wars (same-night rerun); Man Versus Fly rerun airs within
1:18am: Man Versus Fly (same-night rerun)
1:22am: Idiotest (same-night rerun)
1:53am: Man Versus Fly (same-night rerun)
1:57am: Idiotest (same-night rerun)
2:28am: Baggage
3:00am: Skin Wars (same-night rerun)
 
 
Now what I've should've done is have Man vs. Fly run after Skin Wars, take a 2-minute commercial break, let Idiotest go at 9:05 and run for 25 minutes, then have the 2nd Man vs. Fly, this time at 10, with the same being Family Feud and that's it. So why are the weird timeslots? Well, back in the day, TBS used to run them at 5 after every half hour and per hour, especially WCW. Now TV Land does the weirdness. So why did they join GSN?  I don't know, to watch a Man beat a fly for some dough, that's why. If they dislike what teh changes go, then GSN has no choice but to take it off for good. We'll see what happens this Wednesday night.
 
(song stops)
 
 
Half of 6 has to be 3, so let's gather your kids & parents with this story. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The final 5 didn't need to check into an ER for surgery when they did an assingment....on anatomy. Cheryl Ann was the A+ student in the Skin Wars anatomy class getting a  yr.'s supply of WOLF FX makeup & the right to appear on their website for a yr.  However, the class prepared for the big test. Alec Gillis was the guest judge for this exam in which they had to do robot-designed pieces....on bodybuilders. Avi was the one that scored with the Iron Dome 3000 and Rio was expelled from the show.   ANd they all lived.....until the next show.
(song stops)
 
 
Sticking with Skin Wars, they're doing a spinoff called "Skin Wars: Fresh Paint." 6 artists have not tried body painting yet and they will in this one-hour special. Here's how it works.
 
 
 In round 1, the six artists will compete, then three get eliminated. In round two, the remaining three are each paired up with one of the Skin Wars season one contestants, they are Season 1 contestants Dutch Bihary, Gear Duran and season one winner Natalie Fletcherand the painters will choose them. One of those three are eliminated and the mentor of that eliminated artist (either Natalie, Dutch or Gear) join the two judges and they are Emma Cammack, a master body painter, and Mat Gleason, founder of the Coagula Journal. After the last challenge between the two, a winner is crowned. 
 
 
The prize is the same as Idiotest.....$10,000. August 26th at 7 CDT will be the date for this special. Let's hope it'll be better than "The Line" last year. 
 
 
Steampunk'd is one week away and I'm going to step out of my desk to meet the steampunkers. Lights, Illuminate!

(moves back to desk)


So, you got the 10 steampunkers. Who did you pick? Find out next week when I'll recap the competition each week. 


Emojis are everywhere on your phone and mobile device and GSN may be interested in getting it for a game show. If not, there may be other networks that might get it. Good luck. 


One last thing, it's....

Now the 2nd intermission presented by swagbucks.com. I want to introduce you to actress Lena Nicole Thomas. You may know her as Karla on the web series "Wish it, Inc." or as the Little Mermaid on "Fairy Tale Therapy." She does "Drunk Karaoke" on Youtube. Perhaps she's the boyfriend of Shawn DeLoache, a writer. But what you may not know is, she is a singer and talented bassist. Here's Lena doing Louis Armstrong.





And it's 3rd period time!


This year, Idiotest will be turning 1 year old. Fans were hooked to see what a new game show is like. Close to 2 seasons, it's still a hit, So I decided to dress up in my beatnik outfit and read a poem in honor of one of GSN's hitmakers. So Lena, get on the upright bass, Shira Lazar, why don't you pound the bongos for me, please? Sonya Belousova, dazzle me with the ivories. And I'll get on the mic and perform my piece on Idiotest. So ladies.....play.

Oh why Hello, PJK is here,
And I wanna talk about Idiotest's first year.

GSN found a man named Ben,
and made the show a lot funnier since then.

The puzzles they create makes us realize,
how contestants & us get tricked with our eyes.

From Words that throw them off to double negative,
GSN will keep the party going as long as they live.

From the at-home puzzle to find where your finger lands,
to the smart money round to see one team win 10 grand.

This is where GSN comes for the best,
so Happy 1-year birthday to.....IDIOTEST!!!!!
