(theme fades out)
Hello boys & girls, It's Pierre Kelly with something to be thankful for.....GSN. What this blog does is that it will tell you about the network in a nutshell. Matter of fact, we had a church retreat for the youngsters this past weekend and there was GSN in the cabin I slept in. But if your retreat has DIRECTV, tell them to turn it on and turn it up and don't stop watching, because it'll be the network that changes your life and we have Hilty to hunt down the numbers with a remington colt rifle. He's ready to fire as we begin Quarter one.
Once again, Family Feud took the reins of the top 10 with the first 8 slots and the 10 spot with a Sherriwed episode getting in the 9th spot. Now teh trash bin with holes in it.....
Dog Eat Dog kicked it off, follwed by Card Sharks and a triplet of Feud. A saturday morning airing of Sherriwed came next follwed by Double doses of Feud and P+ with Chain Reaction finally ending up last. That's the first quarter, Hilty shoots off.
As we enter teh 2nd quarter, last week, I came to town for something special and I will tell you all about it.
Last Thursday, I went downtown to the American Bible Challenge casting call. I was by myself and it had not many people on there, but my closest friends came earlier before I had and the 3 of us, not me, took a test to see if we could be on teh show. I even signed up as a alternate. It's like being a backup quarterback for the Titans. We even had coffee, water & food. What? No sodas? Anyhoodles, it was an experience we wanted to get on and if we get picked or not, it'll be an experience I'll never forget from that day.

Oh um, where were we? Oh yes, more news now and we know now about what's to take place on Thanksgiving, but right around teh holiday season, you get this.....
Sunday, December 23rd: “The American Bible Challenge” airs from 3pm-12am ET
Monday, December 24th: “Minute to Win IT” airs from 8am-6pm ET
Tuesday, December 25th: “Match Game” airs from 8am-5pm ET
Monday, December 31st: “The $25,000 Pyramid” and “The $100,000 Pyramid” air from 8am-7pm ET and “The Pyramid” airs from 7pm-12am ET
Wednesday, January 1st: “Deal or No Deal” airs from 8am-6pm ET
For teh first time in god knows how long, The Pyramids will air all day on the last day of 2012 and we'll relieve Bible 2 days before we open up our presents, so we can watch classic Match Game.
Moving on, wanna know why Bible is a hit? This article will tell you.
A football coach gets on Sherriwed? Maybe an NHL coach would've worked out in the end.
Missed out on classic Squares? Well, we got a list of the 10 things you did not know about Paul Lynde. Who knew he was a weatherman? And finally....
Mr. Stevie Wonder will pay respects to Mr. Pyramid at teh 40th annual American Music Awards, one of a handful of creations he made. And that's it for the 2nd quarter. Thanksgiving is this week and here to tell you more about it is a tween singer by the name of Nicole Westbrook. I want to caution you on this, once you listen to it, it'll get annoying for a while, so I would suggest you would skip the video and zoom down to teh 3rd quarter, otherwise, just watch at your own risk and try not to laugh at yourself. ENjoy.
You still here? Good. We move on to the 3rd quarter and when Improv-A-Ganza came back, the fans raged about it. One said....
"Definitely a bizarre move. If the show couldn't do well in new episodes I don't see why it would fare any better now. Plus, let's not forget that the show would drag down the ratings of everything that came after it. Really, if GSN doesn't want to air The Pyramid or classics on Friday night, then they should just air 5th Grader or Deal or No Deal."
Why should they? Maybe this one says.....
"First of all, I don't like the show, and I don't think it should be on. Second, the ratings info I got was from Buzzerblog, and Alex said himself he was wrong about that. Three, remember about Family Trade, War of the Rose Sisters, and more. Would you rather have those?"
Nope. Maybe it's this who says.....
"Ugh, they STILL haven't made enough money off this show? I honestly would rather have DWTS back in those slots, at least they still have unaired episodes that they could make money off of. The 40 episodes of this were aired to death for months after it aired and just destroyed the ratings until absolutely no one was watching. At least I am busy most Friday nights, but fortunately there is still Shark Tank on when I am home."
And it gets worse.....like this.....
"If GSN thinks that Improv's ratings are going to be any better this time around, they're sorely mistaken. Even Carrie Ann Inaba's 1 VS 100 did much better in ratings than Improv did, yet 1 VS 100 is now completely off the schedule, and Improv is back.
All I can say is this. If the schedule remains the same, except for Improv replacing Pyramid in that 2-hour Friday block, then the 10 pm showing of Minute is doomed, with possibly the 11 pm hour block of Harvey Feud taking a hit as well."
Perhaps We'll move on to.....
The Fan of the 4th quarter. Our fan this week: A michigan native by the name of Chad Mosher.
He's been on Million Dollar Password and Millionaire Syndicated racking up some money. He's known for his youtube channel and did game shows in the park for a while. He can be seen dishing out the ratings on Buzzerblog and if you didn't notice, her sister Shay was also on a game show....once. Shay mosher isn't but Chad is......
