Wednesday, July 30, 2014 what?

(Having a designated driver after being drunk out is cool, but having a Lyft app is way cooler. It'll take you home.....IHOP......Krystal....or someplace else. Download it 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: Hey there all you gamer heads out there, The blog is called GTK, I think you better read the fine print as we kick the blog off with.......

The Starting Line.

If 8 is enough, then the eps of STYD 201-208 belong to something. According to Game Show Kingdom, GSN has started airing the first eight eps. Dee announced "SHOP 'til you DROP" (at that time, the word "New" was added to the title).
If that becomes a success, we'll see more of it as time goes on.

(song stops)

Time for a break. After this, ben Stein going bananas and I'm so GSN.....we'll help you fill in teh blank after you find out about this.

(song fades out)

(Quick fade out)

Back again and I heard a rumor....

....That Ben Stein was sexting somebody. According to a story in teh San Francisco gate, the game show host & master to "Game Show Moments Gone Bananas," met a 24-year old woman, but he denies how well the sexting abilities were. Good for him. We're almost approaching August and something tells me, there's a bit of.....

House cleaning to take care of. For a week in August....

Skin Wars and Idiotest reruns August 11-17:*Idiotest is new Tuesday at 9pm and 9:30pm and will rerun 5 times: Tuesday 12am and 12:30am (replacing Baggage); Wednesday 10pm and 10:30pm (replacing Harvey's Family Feud); Saturday 10pm and 10:30pm (replacing 1 vs. 100); Sunday 4pm and 4:30pm (replacing O'Hurley's Family Feud); Sunday 1am and 1:30am (replacing Mind of a Man).
*Skin Wars is cut back in reruns from 10 to 6, and the reruns for this week are Wednesday at 5pm (from previous week), Wednesday 12am, Friday 11pm, Saturday 3pm, Sunday 1pm and Sunday 7pm. Many other reruns have been cut or shifted.
Feud might get cut back a little, but the bodypainting shenanigans known as Skin Wars may scale down nearly half of its rerun order. Moving right along.....

*It Takes a Church leaves schedule *The Chase is a rerun from 8/5-Wednesday at 8pm leading into Skin Wars (On August 6th, GSN notes a "N" for new run but does not list the episode number)
*Steve Harvey's Family Feud airs Thursday nights 8-11pm; replacing The Newlywed Game, It Takes a Church and Skin Wars.
*Dog Eat Dog airs Saturday at 4pm; replacing It Takes a Church
*Steve Harvey's Family Feud airs Saturday 8-9pm; replacing Skin Wars
*The Newlywed Game airs Sunday mornings (August 10th and 17th); replacing It Takes a Church
*Baggage airs Sundays 9-11pm; replacing Game Show Moments Gone Bananas (which still airs at 8pm) and Skin Wars (moved to 7pm)
*The Pyramid (GSN) returns at 2am and 2:30am late Sunday night; replacing Skin Wars
Yes, you heard right, ITAC will get outta here for good. Harvey Feud will get an extra night to add to its top-ranked Wednesday night marathon. Baggage will get a Sunday Night affair and just when the Pyramid thought it left for good, it'll be on early Monday Mornings to get Skin Wars out.

(song stops)

I also heard a rumor.....

....That Let's Ask AMerica may make reruns. After 2 seasons with Kevin Pereira, Bill Bellamy will take over this season in syndication. No word yet on when it will actually premiere on this network.

Time for....

...IN a Snap! Flasher took this photo at the TCA, which is the Television Critics Assocation and they had their luncheon. Guess who was in this photo? Snap it!

Yeppers, it was Rebecca Romijn Stamos of SKin Wars and Brooke Burns of The Chase, which is everybody's favorite between Amy Introcaso-Davis, who works for this network. Who kenw the network would grow to standards after 2011?

Time for the 2nd intermission presented by April Efff with a video game song right about now.....

And we begin the 3rd period.

You know, there's a web phenom in which you say "I'M So...." what ever hometown you're in and give you what made your hometown stand out proud. Well, we decided to have a twist at it done for this blog. Here goes nothign.

I'm So GSN.....the only classics I had were all day long instead of all morning long.

I'm So GSN.....when the green ball for the old logo came up, I tried to find them at Toys R Us.

I'm So GSN....The only Feuds I care about are Combs & Dawson.

I'm so GSN.....the Dating Game is always a dating game.

I'm so GSN.....rerun abuse every Saturday Night didn't kick in until after 11pm.

I'm SO GSN......the only leases had to be more than 2 months when Match Game was on.

I'm SO GSN.....anything before 2004 was my escape hatch.

I'm so GSN.....Wheel & J! needs to come back.....badly.

How's one more for you?

I'm SO GSN......It's the only place I go for Bible. Yes, I confess, people. If you got one, the details will be....after I cue up this song.

Time to leave. This blog is presented by ghost malls. They make the Wolfchase Galleria look like a haunted house.
Don't forget to email me at,, Pierre Jason Kelly on FB and @Johnny_Arcade on twitter. We'll see you later and play on, playas.

Overtime #12: Holy Cow, Batman!

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

Me: It's Overtime. The only monthly dose of GSN in a short little spark. Today, Who would win the ultimate Bible Challenge?
2012: Judson's Legacy. When Bible first came on the scene, It wanted to attract an audience so big, the network sought it as a hit. Judson's Legacy was the first to collect $100,000 and.....the choir wore the same clothes. Weird.
2013: Wagner Warriors. Kirk Franklin came in to change the choir's look & feel and not only it attracted a singing trio, wrestlers, rabbis, nuns and Kari Jobe herself, but a group of men knew the Bible pretty well and won it all.
2014: The Bible Belts. The Karate kids kicked out shoe-wearing divas, priests, policemen, roller derby queens and scrabble fans among others to take away the top prize.
So who would win this ultimate showdown? My prediction would be......The Wagner Warriors. Because they feel smart on what the good book says. Otherwise, it would be very close to call.
Kids, look at the time. We got to go. We got another week of GSN to cover before going into August. So until I see you again, play on playas.

Dark Karn-ival

(No, Lyft won't take you from hear to there on a hot air balloon, but it'll take you from here to there on a stranger's car with a mustache on the front. A credit or debit card will do pay for your rides and you're good to go. Download the app in ITunes & Google Play 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: Welcome to another week of kicking butt and taking names for the network you've watched for years & years. Time to get yoru granola bars and Powerade for.....

The Starting Line.

Karn & O' Hurley Feuds are dwindling in recent years. Why is that? Well, to give you the information, we take you from last year to today via

July 15-21, 2013: Karn: 28; O'Hurley: 14; Harvey: 66; Total: 108
July 29-August 4, 2013: Karn: 28; O'Hurley: 18; Harvey: 66; Total: 112
August 5-11, 2013: Karn: 28; O'Hurley: 18; Harvey: 58; Total: 104
September 2-8, 2013: Karn: 26; O'Hurley: 26; Harvey: 64; Total: 106
September 16-22, 2013: Karn: 18; O'Hurley: 18; Harvey: 82; Total: 118 (most ever)
September 30-October 6, 2013: Karn: 26; O'Hurley: 26; Harvey: 66; Total: 118 (most ever)
November 4-10, 2013: Karn: 28; O'Hurley: 26; Harvey: 64; Total: 118
December 2-8, 2013: Karn: 16; O'Hurley: 18; Harvey: 64; Total: 98
January 13-19, 2014: Karn: 10; O'Hurley: 18; Harvey: 58; Total: 86
January 20-26, 2014: Karn: 4; O'Hurley: 18; Harvey: 60; Total: 82
March 17-23, 2014: Karn: 4; O'Hurley: 18; Harvey: 64; Total: 86
May 20-26, 2014 (present): Karn: 2; O'Hurley: 16; Harvey: 66; Total: 84

It seems that September to October of last year had the most ever. Today, Harvey has the most slots while Karn has the least slots with just 2. O 'Hurley is hanging in there. Is Karn the next to join Combs & Dawson in a long line of Feuds casualties?

(song stops)

The End of July means it's.....YAY & Yawn time!!!!!

The yay: Bible Belts winning the American Bible Challenge. Boy, they got smarter.

The yawn: Sony, it's parent company taking WHeel & J! classics ones down on Youtube. Sony wanted to get the burglars to to Youtube users while they're were asleep and then......gone.

A quick timeout means we'll pause for polls and why I took an episode of Wheel down. Don't Move.......what, you're moving?

(song fades out)

(Quick fade out)

So we're back and the bible finale was over 500K viewers, but was down 42% from the second season finale and down 21% from teh first. At least Bible had something to gnaw on. Somebody send in a mob of string players, because it's......

House cleaning for August.

*The Chase will have a "New" episode Wednesday, August 6th at 8pm, leading into Skin Wars. The episode number is to be decided. The Chase will remain new Tuesday nights. The Chase does not rerun Wednesday, August 6th later in the night.
*Skin Wars airs Wednesday at 9pm and will rerun 10 times: Wednesday 12am (replacing Baggage); Thursday 10pm (replacing Family Feud); Thursday 3am (replacing Baggage); Friday 11pm (replacing Family Feud); Saturday 3pm (replacing Dog Eat Dog); Saturday 8pm (replacing Family Feud); Saturday 12am (replacing Mind of a Man); Sunday 1pm (replacing The Chase); Sunday 10pm (replacing The Newlywed Game) and Sunday 2am (replacing The Pyramid)
*The Newlywed Game will air in the Friday night stack (8-11pm); replacing 1 vs. 100/It Takes a Church
*Steve Harvey's Family Feud gains the 5pm hour Saturday; replacing It Takes a Church. Skin Wars, in return, takes the 8pm hour Saturday. No gain or loss for Harvey Feud.
*In a new Sunday primetime lineup, It Takes a Church still reruns at 7pm, Game Show Moments Gone Bananas airs at 8pm and 9pm, Skin Wars airs at 10pm and The Chase still airs at 11pm; replacing The Newlywed Game. The Newlywed Game remains at 12am and 12:30am.

Special notes:
*The Pyramid (GSN 2012 version) leaves the schedule

*"New to GSN" episodes of The $25,000 Pyramid remain

*Dog Eat Dog does remain on the schedule-just at 3am weekend latenights.
*It Takes a Church reruns have been cut back to 3 a week.
*Richard Karn's Family Feud lives on the schedule for another week, at least.

It seems that bodypainting competition will run 10x all around the weekend. Sherriwed will take Fridays over and Mike's Pyramid is finally leaving for good. There is more.....

GSN has officially moved the Idiotest premiere an hour later on its original premiere night, Tuesday, August 12th. Originally Idiotest was scheduled at 8pm; now GSN will use The Chase at 8pm (ET) to boost Idiotest in its new timeslot at 9pm (ET). The first season of Idiotest consists of 40 half-hour episodes.
Minor change, but it's still on for the premiere date. As far as Fieri Minute goes, it's time on GSN is up after 2 years.

(song stops)

Right now, it's.....

Carni-Poll. One Tilt-A-Whirl of polling stuff.

Which of the following GSN originals, in 2014, do you consider yourself a fan of?

68% say it's Chase, 26% thought it was Bible & Minute, 21% goes to ITAC and MOAM takes dead last. Next....

How will 'It Takes a Church' perform without 'American Bible Challenge' (July 24th & 31st)?

57% say it's drop to the cancellation line. So adios, Natalie Grant's hosting career.

Which are you more excited for on GSN?
Idiotest over Skin Wars sayeth the group. Good for you, guys!

What is the future for 'It Takes a Church'?

56% say.....get it out of here! Finally....

What is the future for 'American Bible Challenge'?

59% say they want season 4. I agree with you all.

(song stops)

Now the 2nd intermission presented by Here now is Meghan Trainor, who wrote songs for such country artists as Rascall Flatts and more with a hut soon to be the summer anthem of this year.

And we go to the 3rd period.

Remember that purge Sony gave when Youtubers took down Wheel & J! stuff? Well, there was a #TBT episode of Wheel back in 1988 when MG Kelly was hosting. What happened later on was user took it away. That was it. What did i do? Duh, take it out on my group page and inform them. Remember what I said, next time you want to upload any classic Wheel or J! stuff.......don't.

It's a wrap, amigos! Today's blog is presented by cotton candy. Nothing sticks to your gums like cotton candy. Available in pink & blue. In Stores everywhere!

On the next GSN The Know....

-Karn & O' Hurley Feud. Is it the end of the line for those 2?
-Was Bible 3 finale better or worse than last season?
-And How I took action by taking a video out of here.

Wednesday, July 16, 2014


(whether you want to go to a Summerglen concert like I do this week, a roller derby event, a movie, church, home after a wild night with your friends or whatever, let Lyft take you from here to there in a nanosecond. 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: And we're right on time. Thanks for putting us in a joyride and getting us there. Let's start with....

The Starting Line.
Rhymz With Grace, The Bible Belts and the Devoted Divas are set for a finale you won't forget. 2 years ago, Judson's Legacy won the grand prize as did Wagner Warriors next year. This year, it'll be a big battle of biblical brains all for $100,000 and GSN has all the action.

(song stops)
In a few, The Chase off to a modest start, we'll tell you what happened and fans taking action against Sony. That & more after this.

(song fades out)

(Quick fade out)

Hey there, boys & girls, The Chase scored 494,000 total viewers. That's 2/3 lost from a break when season 2 was up. To do taht, we must head into.....

Twitter Theater.

Matthew Jones tweeted out....

"Uh, that's not good. It was getting 700K-800K in most episodes last season."

However, Chad Mosher was wrong.

"[The Chase] is up from last season's premiere but let's hope it picks up steam like season 2."
We'll have to see how the rest of teh season goes.

I know what you're doing this weekend. Partying, dining out or.....going to Nashville to be on "The Line." That's what GSN viewers want to do. July 19-22nd will be the event. Scriptor, tell us all about it.
"The Line invites hundreds of people to line up each day for a chance to win cash and prizes by answering a series of trivia questions. The goal is to get to the “Trivia Vault” at the front of the line, where each contestant can attempt to win a jackpot by answering eight true/false questions, but many will have an opportunity to play and win while waiting in the line itself. Those who make it to the front of the line will see the jackpot grow with each contestant who fails to answer his or her eight questions."
All they need is a host. Make that 2.

One is Jeff B. Davis of Whose Line fame and once tried out for teh announcing role on TPIR.

The other person is Candace Bailey who used to host AOTS on G4 until the very end, and hosted UPick Live on Nickelodeon.

I forgot to mention, there will be stunts involved while they get in the vault for that cheese. Can't wait for it.

With Skin Wars moments away, we check....

The Facebook Files.

Michael Yearsley has this comment....

"Why is GSN even doing this show? It's not even a game show to begin with. I bet it won't take long before it gets cancelled."

Spike or Discovery or A&E would've been good possibilties. You know. Next was Lane Crooks.

"Not crazy about it, you're moving too far from your roots GSN."

Where is your game show roots at, GSN? Scott Carpency should occupy this as a warning....

"Don't worry too much about it. GSN's schedule is still 99% game shows, that is, after this show premieres."

See? June Kinniback has this...

"Not anything I would watch. Bring back Catch 21 with new shows. That's my favorite of the new shows you have done. I hate Love Triangle...its like a trash show. And that's my opinion. You asked for a new Match Game."

Well, they have the latter up in Canada, but Catch 21 is what I would bring back. And finally, this rant from Bryan Crump which happens to be break.

(switches track)

Go Bryan.

"Bodypainting is one of the earliest known forms of expression, makeup, etc. I encourage all of you to give the show a chance and go in with an open mind to art and possibility. You will see a variety of transformations and skillsets. All of these artists work hard at their craft and people at home can challenge themselves to create from what they are inspired by. Women do their makeup every day and that is a form of bodypainting, we may not think of it as art, but its used to help bring out certain qualities or help bring characters to life.

 you like stage shows, theatre, cirque de soleil, etc. This is a chance for many to learn what it takes to create some of those wonderful visions. We clothe ourselves with art everyday. Some may be more conservative, but our bodies are not something we should be ashamed of. I am excited to see what this show can accomplish. If done right, it could really help open people's minds to understanding more of the human condition, perspectives, thoughts, etc.
Games are evolving in this day and age. We can learn a lot by challenging ourselves to new mediums, but judging the creative process before it even begins limits potentials. Our thoughts can be very powerful things and they can help us reach greatness or they can limit us and keep us from seeing the great things we can accomplish and who we can become."

(hits buzzer)

oh hi. Sorry for that rant, but we get the 2nd intermission presented by The Double Clicks have got something for you....

And we start the final period.

When David Downs, Know-it-all got the bad news that the company that owns GSN got a copyright strike on his Youtube account, everybody spat coffee on or computer or tablet to see the bad news. What's wrong with Sony & Youtube? Well, they own Jeopardy! & Wheel. So what did some Youtube users do to take action? Well, they decided to take down every single one of J! and Wheel episodes. Look, the problem is that Sony makes more money. How in the world can they start a purge and end up with something reduced? GSN has their videos, but if you upload shows you recorded from your's a no-no. Jared Oswald has 2 strikes IIRC because.....I don't know. Shows with Old GSN logos as bugs? That's no problem. And because GSN is partners with Worldwinner, try not to upload any Idiotest or MOAM for teh most part. I saw one complete MOAM episode and so copyright claim. What can Youtube deserve to do this with a company that owns teh Playstation? I have no idea. So until then, start taking down your classic or current episodes of Wheel & J!m because Sony may be in your inbox telling them you got a target on your back.

And so with an empty stomach taking us to Taco Bell, our blog is presented by "The Purge: Anarchy." What is the Purge was real? Find out in theatres July 18th.
Don't forget to email me at,, Pierre Jason Kelly on FB and @Johnny_Arcade on twitter. So until next week, Play on, playas.
