From a Bad angle

(Game show people, please get to and find ways to save money. There's even a 5% challenge for you to try. Go to for more. And now....EAT THIS!!!)

VO: Today's program has.....


Schedule changes......

Love Triangle returning......

....and Bergland Icey? Yes, from the Wilton-North building where you might not be the only exception, it's.....

GSN The Know, the blog that almost knows a lot about everything. Here is Pierre Kelly.

Me: Welcome back to the blog where less is Paramore and Demi Moore is lesser than Kirstie Alley's weight. Before we get started, Kathy Sue Holtorf has a little ditty to you guys.....

See? Thanks, Kathy. Alright, time to get the show on the road. hilty, fan me with the first.

Family Feud took down all 10 spots this past week and kept the newer version of Minute out of the top 10 by one spot. Just one spot. Now the shredded documents.....

$100 Pyramid kicked it off first, followed by a trio of Match game shows. P+, PYL, DED and $ale came in next with another trio of Match Game rounding out the list. That ends the first. and Hilty is overheating. I'll cool off with a pencil.

Time to go get ourselves some ice cream, but don't leave, because we'll tell you the Whos, whats, whens and whys of changes to a daytime schedule after this break.

(song fades out)

You've stuck around during the ad, now let's talk about the schedule changes.

*Super Password will air at 9am; remains at 11am
*Press Your Luck moves to 9:30am
*Sale of the Century moves to 10:00am
*The $100,000 Pyramid will air at 11:30am
*Richard Karn's Family Feud will air at 12pm and 12:30pm
*The Pyramid (GSN) will air at 2:30pm
(all Eastern time)

The classics get a bit of movement in the morning, but Match Game stays put and Mike's Pyramid adds an airing.

For the week of July 15-21, Chain Reaction will now take both Mondays and Fridays from 8-10pm. Love Triangle replaces Chain Reaction on weekend mornings at 10:30am.
It looks like all 130 episodes of the 2006 original gets 2 days for 2 hours separately and Love Triangle comes back. I'll tell you more about the latter in the 3rd period. But there's more.....

For the week of August 5-11, The Chase will rerun at the following times: Tuesday 12am and 1am, replacing Baggage; Thursday at 8pm and 9pm, replacing The Newlywed Game; Friday 10pm & 11pm replacing Minute to Win It/Family Feud; Saturday 1pm & 2pm replacing Fieri Minute to Win It; Saturday 8pm & 9pm replacing Family Feud; Sunday 7pm & 8pm replacing 5th Grader.

"The Chase" can't get here any sooner and they want to pull a Bible challenge if they want to succeed in this. Want to know more about the schedule changes? Go to our FB group page, or tell me about it in the info below by the end of the 3rd period.

What In the Heck happened to Bergland Icey? Well, the former hostess of "Cram" with future podcaster Graham Elwood found new life on TV thanks to this.....

Yep, Siberia. A fake reality program seen on NBC that actually takes place in Canada. Want to know more? Let me explain.

Sixteen reality-show contestants arrive in a Siberian forest to take part in a new reality show and quickly discover the adventure and life-threatening danger is not what they signed up for.

Okay, but what's the prize? I don't know just yet, but when you tune in Mondays, you'll figure out as time goes on.

And finally, Caroline Rhea who was "America's Sweetheart" on Bergeron's Hollywood Squares, now hosts a live version of "Family Feud"......up in Calagary.

Time for the 2nd intermission where sponsors it. From what I heard, there's a song in Pitch Perfect that was stuck in your head a bit during the movie, and now it's coming back to haunt you on the radio. Here's Anna Kendrick and this song.....

But we're not gone yet. We have one more period to go.

2011 was the worst year GSN ever had. First, Engvall's Lingo, then Improv-A-Ganza and now Love Triangle. Although it was Wendy Williams' only show she hosted on the network, fans obviously didn't like it one bit. Disappeared from the schedule, it's now making a comeback. Why did they decide to do this? Well, Wendy's talk show is doing well and......that's just it. But they wanted this and the 2012 Pyramid to come to the schedule next week. Why did they make a move? Well, they wanted to find something they hadn't played in a while. Imrpov-a-ganza on Fridays. Gone. Engvall's Lingo. Gone next week. Love Triangle?......we'll never know.

That does it. Today's blog was brought to you by Siberia. Yes, you'll learn when to cook, clean, wash clothes and stay all while trying not get shot, killed or hurt. Stay in Siberia and come for the bounty.

Don't forget to email me at,, Pierre Jason Kelly on FB and @Johnny_Arcade on twitter. We'll see you later and play on, playas.
