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.

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?
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?

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......

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.

Now the 2nd intermission presented by swagbucks.com. 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 this.....one 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.
