(theme fades out)
What is going down all you gamesters and game-istas? Pierre Kelly throwing it down on GSN The Know, where you know so much about the network, because we appreciate you for reading all this stuff I've given to you. It takes 4 quarters and when we are done, go watch the network as to what you have learned in this blog. We begin with the first quarter and Hilty will begin it....now.
Family Feud took the first 8 slots on the countdown, but Fifth Grader stopped the bleeding from Feud in the 9th spot, while another episode of Harvey's version rounded out the list. Now we head off to the vault of the blood bank where we find:
Super Password kicking off the list, followed by Woolery's Lingo, $100K Pyramid, Feud sandwiched in between 3 episodes of Password Plus and 4 more episodes of Feud's leasing loop went unwatchable for the last 4 slots. We end the first quarter and Hilty must stop it with a cotton swab.
Now we start the 2nd quarter with some...
Whale Mail. Hi Whaley. And don't worry, I wore a pancho over my blazer jacket to avoid the water mess. Anyways, these are actual comments from my blog who helped out in times of trouble, rerun abuse and the third level of TMNT on NES. We have 2 today, and HD writes....
"It turns out Shadeed isn't banned. He is in the member list. I already know this from somebody else that doesn't have him blocked/Shadeed doesn't have them blocked. At least Adam gave me a second chance, and knows damn well what happened on July 4th. It was nothing but a bunch of third graders there. Even Mike Tiller(who I didn't even know was a member) came at me. All got butthurt because I didn't eat their crap."
Well, I have to apologize about what I said in the 4th quarter. The real reason why I left was the fact that cartoony stuff and easier puzzles and protesting GSN's airings of DWTS got me thinking...when will I get out? Matter of fact, my FB group page said it all, do no worries on it. The other mail comes from Frank Giannantonio. Sounds like the last name of San Antonio's wife, but you get the idea. Anyways, he writes:
"I only want the Pyramid's hosted by Clark, because when he asks the contestants if they want to give or receive, and the contestant replies, "I'll take, Dick, please." I always laugh."
Well, they do have the Pyramids hosted by Clark himself, and we still have the newest version with Mike Richards in the fall. And if you want to comment, comment below the blog post about what I learned. But for now, bye Whaley.
Wet, isn't it. Ah, waterproof notes. We continue with the return of Dog Eat Dog, and when a 2-season wonder came to GSN, we were expecting rerun abuse headaches, but this time, it'll be on weekends, kicking DOND and Millionaire out the door. Let's learn more about an extreme game show....
Under the Sink.
26 episodes and ran with Fear Factor, Brooke Burns took 6 players on a journey to $25,000. In order to find out who will win, they must complete challenges he/she thinks it's not comfortable for. If that happens, he/she may end up in the "Dog Pound" or the "Loser's Bench" on the original UK version. If successful, he/she may pick somebody who voted for to the same place. After 4 contests, there is a head-to-head challenge to determine who is tonight's top dog and $25,000, but before you get the money, you have to settle a best out of 5 trivia race for either you get the $25,000 or $5000 for 5 opponents as payback. It attracted such players as Sik-end, who won it all, the guy with the devil's horns hair look, one guy who tried his luck walking across a runway in high heels...ick!, a rock star named Willow, reality stars and of course, NFL cheerleaders. Now relive all 26 of them in GSN every single weekend. Arf!
Other newsly matters now:
Steve Harvey, Feud host and now, talk show host? But one of the things that excite me is The American Bible Challenge next month.....
And the LA Times, a paper seen on ESPN's Around The Horn, printed out this story....
As well as uproxx.com. Even the commercials make sense. But I wanted to make my own commandments, so for the first, and only time in this blog's history, I've decided to add new commandments the network does not want you to show. Never before have I done this. Off I go.....
THOU SHALT NOT LANDETH ON A WHAMMY!
THOU SHALT SAY "NO DEAL" TO THE BANKER WHEN TURNING DOWN THY OFFERS
THOU SHALT NOT MAKE A DEAL WITH THE DEVIL UNLESS MONTY HALL SAYETH SO
THOU SHALT NOT START THE ALPHABET WITH THE LETTERS "R, S, T, L, N & E."
HONOR THY HOST AND ANNOUNCER AND AUDIENCE UNLESS YOU HAPPEN TO BE ON "THE PRICE IS RIGHT."
THOU SHALT MAKE A CHAIN REACTION WITH WORDS LEADTH TO ANOTHER
REMEMBER THE PREMIERE DATE AND KEEP IT....HOLY CRAP, IT'S A FAMILY FEUD RERUN FROM 1980.
Sticking with that last one.....
THOU SHALT NEVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES GO TO A DOCTOR TO TREAT RERUN ABUSE. IT'S GSN'S POLICY AND THEY RUN 200-400 EPISODES OF THE SAME CLASSICS. IF YOU ARE SUFFERING THOSE PROBLEMS, GO TO GSN.COM/FORUMS
THOU SHALT NEVER REVEAL ANOTHER ONE'S BAGGAGE UNLESS YOU'RE ON A SHOW ABOUT DATING.
THOU SHALT BRINGETH BACK THY CLASSICS! PERIOD!
Okay, so I tried and the commercials are a lot better than what I just wrote down, but if you got a commandment you like to write, we'll give you the details on how after the 4th quarter. Now it's halftime and here's Jesper Kyd with something to dance to in honor of the new Batman Movie.
Done dancing? Good. Time for the third quarter. People are into Minute To Win It, but one prefers a British show to this:
"If MTWI didn't have such an annoying host (can't stand Guy Fieri in general, but on this show he's the most annoying yet IMHO) and an obnoxious ambiance to it and it wasn't so freaking loud with frequent screaming contestants, I would have liked it more. On The Cube, they cheer and applaud and stuff but not on the level of this show.
I mean, at this rate I'm glad that GSN's getting another legit game show to add to the schedule, but I can't say I'm actually excited to see this one. Good for the fans tho."
I think the Cube was the most pressure packed program over Minute. It had a money tree Minute wouldn't dare try. Here's another one.
"I'll really have to see how Guy Fieri did as a host, because I didn't watch regularly. He couldn't have done too bad, or else the show would have been cancelled a lot sooner."
Maybe Giada De Laurentiis would've made it a megahit all itself. Another comment:
"I can't see Minute to Win It being a show that will flood the schedule this year like Deal or No Deal did from 2009-2011. Minute to Win It has much fewer episodes too, and was less popular in the United States."
You're right. One night and that's just it. DOND got overflowed like a bathtub in the years mentioned, but it's now draining it's timeslots. Here's another one:
"I think Minute to Win It could still hit it off on weekends and do well just like Power of 10 did and Million Dollar Password is now. The episodes will be in reruns, but enough people will still watch them as long as they're not aired at 9am."
I'm guessing that would've worked out either way. How about one more?
"Well, if they show four eps. of MTWI a night once a week (Tuesdays), then GSN will have run through all of the episodes in 17 weeks, which is about 4 months; therefore the rerunning will start in late November or early December."
I think one week is enough to salvage all this. Now a word of advice. Fourth Quarter....
I am going to tell you this one time: don't give GSN any more ideas. If you consider American Idol to be a game show, I suggest you have FX air it. If you want a weight loss game like the Biggest Loser, I suggest Lifetime would do the trick, but not GSN, because it won't. If you consider So You Think You Can Dance, go watch Ovation. Endurance, that's a good kids show, but I'll pass on that. Survivor, that belongs on OLN, but not GSN. DWTS, it should've belonged on either TV land, ABC Family or Soapnet, but it was on GSN. Just like Justin Bieber said, I will tell you this one time and one time only: Don't you ever give GSN any ideas. Capiesh?
Before we split, we would like to dedicate this blog to the victims and wounded survivors of the Colorado shooting massacre. I know it's horrid, but the Lord above can heal things in an instant. Again, thank you for joining us.
Remember to get into our FB group page and tell us about it. Tweet me @ Johnny_Arcade, friend me as Pierre Jason Kelly or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and when I'm on the GSN forums, I'm Gameheadz. See you guys later and play on, playas.
