GTK Overtime #2: In Our Forum

Hey everyone, and by everyone, I mean those watching GSN because you, yes, you are in for some overtime. Our list of things you learn more about the network. This month, we say goodbye to the forums. We laughed, we cried.....we even got mad for the hate of why the schedule changes every time. However, on the same day....

They're adding a Player News section to the main site. So let's pay homage to the forums by giving you 5 things why you missed them.
(song fades out)

1. If PYL starts over again, rant on it.
The lack of classics as well as leases are to why fans clamor on why the classics need to return. WHen PYL started the lease all over again, fans were outraged as to why episodes that have not been seen in a while should be on GSN. That changed last year when PYL got the early part of the run. But we still have the late part of the run unseen. If we see that, we'll be jealous of it.

2. What's on the schedule gets talked about here.
When you break the news, that's when the fans talk about it. The reason why they put too much Feud on the schedule is because fans what to rant as to why 21st century Feud is dominating. Oh, and ratings were a factor too.

3. If you missed a show, you'd catch up with it.
The Originals section had fans talking about which show they were on. They went through parts of what they like and what they didn't like. Eveyr show had an offical thread and they talked on it.

4. It was all fun & games until someone......
GSN Forums had a playing section where you did community versions of GSN classics or current hits, as well as fan fiction. Yes, fan fiction. There was even an off-topic section as well.

5. Angel over devil.
GSNAngel took charge of the boards and ran the whole thing until this week. She gave you tips on how to play games, announced Players of the month and so much more.

Oopsy Daisy. Time for us to leave. We'll return Wednesday with a fresh batch of ratings, news & info to fill your life of GSN. Until then, play on playas.

Back to school, you're a fool, but the whammy thinks you're cool.....

(GSN the Know is on your lesson planner, but I got a sponsor for you to wax on. It's Think school shopping is just a way to find a bargain on whatever your student needs to get the lessons your teacher wants? does that. They even have "Beat Your Brain" all at this website. And now, stare at the projecotr and have a look at this.....)

VO: Attention all teachers, students, subsitute teachers and guidance couselors, here are your morning announcements....

-We'll have ratings from a mathemathican....

-We'll discuss news from the school paper....

-And our drama team will take GSN to school. Yes, from the WIlton-North Building where I got it bad, got it bad, got it baaaaad, I'm hot for teacher, it's.....

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

Me: Hello students, my name is.....

(writes name on NYSI telestrator)

Mr. Kelly. Class, take our your textbooks and turn to our first period. Please take notes as Hilty reads the report from the ratings.

Family Feud took the first 3, but Fifth Grader took up 4th and Chain Reaction was 7th in a sandwich with FEud and the latter took the rest of the top 10. Doing good so far, class? Good, now we go to the bottom 10. The ones stuck in the principal's office all week.

Match Game was in a sandwich with 100K Pyramid and Baggage, while another one connects to $ale. P+ came next and DED parted the kiddie pool with Baggage. That's the first. Let me turn Hilty off.

TIme for a break, but don't put your head down on the desks just yet, because after this break, news on Bible. More GTK after I hit the teacher's lounge for a soda and chips. Talk amongst yourselves, students while I'm gone.

Welcome back students....uh, guys quiet down.....I said.....

Thank you. We have the second period done by I heard a rumor....

....That Jeff Foxworthy may or may not stay with The American Bible Challenge. GSN is currently negotiating a contract with him that could be worth.....some money. But you never know when he'll stick around or not. Keeping up with Bible, this call & response brings us to a short & sweet edition of....

Twitter Theater.  This exchange took place from July 16th and it went a little something like this.....

@chicagosports91: @GSN_Bible when does the nxt season start?
@GSN_Bible: We hope soon, still waiting for official word on if there will be a season 3. Fingers and toes crossed!
And by IF, if could be by the time the Olympics may be over, but we'll see.

(Song stops)

Uh, thank you school band. Now on to some more news on "The Chase." We've added more pictures from Flasher and here they come:





Next, place your bets on this.....

Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Cake Boss......on Family Feud. This oughta raise a few eyebrows at the hit show.

Time for the 2nd intermission. This week, we focus on Kurt Hugo Schnieder. Who is he? Well, he's one half of a duo with Sam Tsui, both out of Yale University. How do the 2 blend well? Watch the video and find out.

Now the 3rd period. As prmosied, GSN is going back to school. When GSN began, everyone was in the nursery when 1995 arrived. Now turning 19, the average kid goes to either high school or community college. Any kid born aournd the 80's turned to GSN right around the time they were in elementary or middle school. If GSN had an actual school, the average student would have this schedule for instance....

Homeroom-Ms. Davis
Period 1-Survey results-Mr. Harvey
Period 2-Advanced Spelling-Mr. Engvall
Period 3-Physical Education-Mr. Ohno
Period 4-Lunch
Period 5-Biblical Studies-Mr. Foxworthy
Period 6-Scientific Links-Mr. Lane
Period 7-Sex Education-Ms. Shepard

As for extracirricular activites, You would try making the cut on a Family Feud varsity team since the network airs many Feud shows per host. Better yet, you could sing in the choir with Mr. Franklin. You can skip ballroom dancing with Mr. Bergeron or better yet.....hold it.......Bartering with Mr. Stone. Both are no longer in the classroom. But what about the school supplies and what it applies to GSN?

Well, for starters, the pencil. Why? You could make up surveys, suggest any MTWI stunt or.....write questions TABC didn't ask in the last 2 seasons?

Every pencil has an eraser. Why? Because if your show can't stuggle with many people, just erase it and find a show people haven't seen in a while. I'm talking to you, Love Triangle.

Markers? Yeah, we got that. Match Game has 'em. All you need is 3 x 5 cards and you're good to go at 7 am in the morning.

Then comes rulers. You can make mock versions of game show sets of your favroite GSN shows anytime you want. Just use your imagination and let it go.

Need podiums? Use construction paper, glue and crayons to make your own Pyramid seating area, or the winner's circle. Better yet, use notebooks to write down your plans.

As if that wasn't enough, we have lunchboxes. Write down a secret, stick it inside the lunchbox with crazy glue and Bang! Your own version of Baggage. Try it with your friends.

And finally the most important supply of all.......paper clips. They can take ratings, use it and react to the internet people.

WHat you have just seen is somewhat fictional and is not affilated with copmanies of shows seen on GSN, the network itself, GSN The Know industries, Marty Derosa Enterprises and Warner Communications, which is responsible for it's content.

Class dismissed kiddies. Today's blog is brought to you by Detention. It's depressing and it's no fun. To make matters worse.....Mark "The Beast" Labett as your teacher. Does that creep you out? I think not, but anyways.....

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.
