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: It must be me and we're ready to roll here. GSN turns 19 years old this year and I understand 20 will be the magic number next year when we get there. But we have to survive another year of the network for games starting with the ratings. Hilty, make me a monster.
Back to ratings business after a week off and Feud came in 9 slots with Chain Reaction parting in between at the 6 spot. Now the tower that got crashed.
2 Baggage shows was parted in between Match Game and after Feud and Baggage, a late night airing of "the Chase" came in making Chase come to the bottom 10 for the firts time ever and Match Game, Passowrd Plus and DED rounded the set out. As for the watchers.....
This week: 325,000/271,000
Last week: 275,000/249,000
Prime time shot back up 300k while the whole day went over 250k. That's the first period. Swpie out, Hilty!
Helga the Opera Viking texted me, but you know what they say, it isn't over until the fat lady sings, so let's break out before she gets here with news and a moment to live by. All after this.
(song fades out)
(quick fade out)
Back again and Bible is getting pushed back.....
to Summer? Well, according to a rep of its host, the show was taping and is in fact for this month. That kinda sucks, isn't it?
As for Bill Engvall, he ended up in 4th place on DWTS when he went into the finale. The victor: Amber Riley of Glee fame. I wonder why Bill got himself back into the business after 2011 Lingo went off the air?
One family Feud wrinkle is inducted into Game SHow Garbage this week, so you need to go check it out. Right now, we enter the 2nd intermission presented by swagbucks.com. This week, It's the O'Jays and this hit.....
And now the 3rd period.
With GSN turning 19, Legendary game show host Bob Barker turns 90 this year. He's the subject of "A Moment To Live By." Here's him at work back in the early 80's.
Time to quit. Don't forget the GTK Know-It-All Awards will be in 2 weeks from now.
