(theme fades out)
Why, it must be me, Pierre kelly for another session of GSN The Know, and I decided to do it on MLK day because I have jury duty next week and that's just it, but hey, we can still talk GSN even those in teh prison system want it. Time to let the dogs loose with Quarter 1. Hilty is the warden and he's got teh key to it. Unlock that sucker!
The New year continued to pour it on as family Feud locked up the first 20 slots, but only 19 of them. Now the people stuck in a lockers in a locker room.....
A 3-way tie between 100K Pyramid, Card Sharks and DED got stumbled in a 3-legged race along with more Pyramid to show for, Feud, Password Plus a double dose of Sharks and a triplet of Feud. First quarter is done and we lock it up.
We head into the 2nd quarter and teh Family trade isn't until March 5th. So, to not keep them waiting any loinger, matter of fact, I'll wait even longer for the Bible Challenge, we decided to learn more about this show.....
Under the Sink.
In text form, it reads.....
At G-Stone Motors, a state-of-the-art GMC and Ford dealership in Middlebury, Vermont, the saying is, “We’ll take anything in trade.” And they mean it. Founder Gardner Stone will trade you a beautiful new car or truck for anything you’ve got that he thinks he can sell—pigs, a hot air balloon, coffins, maple syrup, dolls, a shoe collection. But Stone’s son Todd and daughter Darcy, who work with him in the business, usually have very different ideas about what makes a good trade, and they have the unenviable task of re-selling whatever their father has bought. Each 30-minute episode will feature the outrageous, hilarious, hotly contested barter stories at G-Stone Motors—with a simmering stew of family drama cooking alongside. FAMILY TRADE is produced by Eli Frankel’s Rogue Atlas Productions in association with Lionsgate, with Frankel as Executive Producer.
Yawn. Moving on.....
This just in. Kirk Franklin will join the American Bible Challenge to be musical co-host alongside Jeff Foxworthy and adding more choir members to it's 8-member choir making it about....um....12 or 16 to give the 2nd season a way better season. My friend Alisa's going to love this. Speed reading along now....
Remember what Meredith Viera did to Millionaire? Well, she may have a talk show to rival that of Steve Harvey and Katie Couric. Finally....
Hollywood Squares may come to casinos everywhere. Hip Hop Squares.....don't know. But we go to halftime and last week, Justin TImberlake gave you a warm welcome, now he's here to do a new song that'll soon blow up the charts.....
Halftime's over and we're on to the second half, but before we do that, please click on this....
You can earn a whole bunch of points just by doing surveys, polls, games and a whole bunch more. And if you got enough points, you may earn free stuff. Why not go there? It's swagbucks.com, and tell your friends about it on this blog. Last quarter, we talked about the Family Trade, but what did the fans say? We start with....
"Doesn't sound one bit interesting. I think I'll pass on this one."
Pass you shall. Next!
"Survey says, 'That's 30 minutes of my life I will never get back!'"It'll be the worst 30 you've ever wasted. Who's up next?
"This sounds good.
As I said before, this sounds a lot like Hardcore Pawn. It airs on the same night as Hardcore Pawn (Tuesdays), although I think HP will be in reruns by then."
"Just saw the commercial for Family Trade right now, before Super Password came on. Doesn't look too interesting to me, and it's out of place on this network."
Way out of place for the whole network in general. Here's another one....
"I respect your opinion, but I don't see this catching on. It already has the disadvantage of being a reality show on GSN, and like BTC, it's a show done (likely better) on other networks. Not to mention, if (when?) it fails, it could torpedo the entire night it's on. I'm going with the majority; it'll run the episodes it shot and go away."
That's my friend David talking about why reality shows don't work because last week, i talked to you about it. How about one more?
"Why would anyone want to watch someone trade pigs? Forget it. There's no way I'm watching this garbage. "
I rest my case. Fourth quarter.
Yearly traditions come & go, but GSN has one.....Black & White TV. Ever since the very begining, GSN has shown many classics, such as What's My Line, I've got A Secret and more. However, the viewship steadliy declined due to age and now it's becoming once a year. For 2 weeks, they show classsics on a late night time slot. The reasons why black & white have become out of place these dyas is because of cigarette ads. At the time before the 70's, it was okay to air ads with smoking. These days, they've become a PSA to stop smoking. As far as the shows are concerned, they perofrm to low ratings and if they were on mornings.....that's a different story. But Youtube and Hulu are the only things that keep the memories alive. As for 2013, we don't know if it's permanent, so keep your eyes open.
Let's shut off the lights and call it a day. Have a great weekend to celebrate our brotherhood.
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.
