Don't hate the Monster, kill it!

(Halloween is 3 weeks away and now is the time to get down to Party City. Get that pirate, nurse or whatever costume you can think of and try it at your next costume party today at your local Party City or Let's get it!)

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: Hey everybody. How was your week? Was it good for GSN or bad for GSN? Whatever it is, we'll help you do that. Let's begin the first period by giving Hilty the good word.

Family Feud took up 1-7. but The Pyramid jumped up to 8th place in just one airing and Feud filled out 9 & 10. Wanna know what the bad news is? Here you go.

Match Game went first, but 2012 Pyramid took a gap for shows like Harvey's Feud, 100K Pyramid, a triple dose of Feud, A double dose of Match Game and Password Plus before it stopped at the very bottom. Now the viewerships averages per the final week in September.

This week: 305,000/260,000
Last week: 314,000/268,000

This week, 9000 viewers tuned out of the network than last week in Prime, but the day was down just 8000 viewers. That's the first period. Hilty will be gone right about!

After about this break, FB complaints, what one site says about Mind of a Man's new host and why people hate GSN.....for some reason. Come back.

(song fades out)

(Quick fade out)

And we've returned. 2nd period presented by Game Show Network News is undeway and sticking with its blog, Deray Davis of the new show "Mind Of A Man" come next year told us about why they chose him as a move towards Steve Harvey of Feud fame.

Sticking of Feud, I think it's time we delve into......

The Facebook Files.

When I checked GSN's offical FB page, so many complaints came pouring in. Like for instance.....

"Maybe everyone should boycott the GSN until a different game show besides Family Feud is on."

Well, they definitely should. How about another one?

"Why do you air so many episodes of Family Feud? Bring back other game shows, it's stupid watching Family Feud over 20 times in a day when there are better game shows out there."

The reason why they did was Amy Introcaso Davis' decision, not the fans, of course. Next one.....

"I guess I'll just stop watching the GSN network. Family Feud has most of the Steve Harvey shows play over and over. I've watched shows where people have won and it's shown again a few weeks later."

Congratulations. You are now free to look at the real game shows on Youtube. How about one more?

"You are becoming just as terrible as Food Network!!! Your showing of Family Feud over and over and over and over and just as irritating of them showing Diners, Drive-In's and Dives over and over and over and over and over....COME ON!! Show something else, or give it an honorable death!!"

Same goes for Spongebob on Nickelodeon. But it all adds up to this short sentence......

I'm SO SICK of Family Feud!!!

See there?

(song stops)

We're fans of game shows and GSN in general. Every 2nd week of the month, we take real people who ain't afraid to talk GSN and isn't scared to show it. It's a new feature called.....

The GSN closet. Taken from the game show confessions tumblr page, we look at people who have a knack for GSN in their own words.


(song stops)

Now the 2nd intermission presented by and more with Svengoolie. He's got another hit cooking for you.....

Now the 3rd period.

It seems that some people hate GSN....for some reason. First things first, there are a lack of classics. Until lunchtime, their leases made them wish they wanted to watch something else. Where's the real classics at? Tic Tac Dough, Joker's Wild, What's My Line, I've Got A Secret, Beat The Clock, Body Language, Child's Play, Wheel of Fortune, Tattletales, Bumper Stumers, Come on! They wanted to get a few classics out and now they're stored in a vault in a safe with hte key missing in it. Good luck if they could find it. Next, reality shows. We talked about it and they don't mix despite the fact it's a network devoted to game shows. Family Trade, DWTS reruns and soon-to-appear Skin Wars have been failures and won't be, save for the American Bible Challenge which had a bit of reality in the team intros. Next up, credit crunches. Yes, it bothers you a bit. When the show is over , they shrink wrap it and start the next show on time. It irrates us! Then there's ads on TV. They get paid for every ad showing which original is being shown. Not 1 time, but more than 20 times. Can't you guys give it a rest? So many things to hate like repeats of originals, but there's one thing people hate........endless reruns of Family Feud. Ever since Steve Harvey came to the scene, GSN and Feud had made it a never ending crusade of keeping the peace of game shows. Show's cancelled? Replace it with Feud. Need a night of prime time? Have Feud there, too. Want lunch? Feud is here. Every 112 shows have Feud and enough is enough. Look, I've been watching the network and they need to stop. Why are you making GSN a Feud network? Here's what we'll do. If they don't replace it with classics and more, we'll be done by then. Got that?

That's about it. Today's blog is brought to you by that movie entitled "The Neverending Story." If you want to see it, watch it. Look for it somewhere on Ebay or amazon, order the movie, pop it in and presto! A 1984 fantasy classic.

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.
