Didn't I tell you guys not to cut in front of the line?  Oh yeah, you were trying to hurry up to get something to see the show, haven't you?
(moderate laughter)
Well, anyways you're in front of the line and front row for a star-studded, action packed extravaganza for everyone......

(audience laughter)
Well, almost.
Starting with our first award of the evening. Your cell phone just got an alarm on such short notice. WHat do you do?

(Love Triangle theme plays)

(lighter applause)

VO: Accepting the award, the host of the show, Wendy Williams!

Wendy: How you doin?

Audience: Not good.

Wendy: Anyways, before I would like to thank everyone, I want to give an update on the.....

(Pierre pulls a lever and sends Wendy through a trap door; audience cheers & applauds)

Me: That takes care of it. Our next performer used to be a pageant queen.....and a traffic reporter.....and a gym employee, but she said, "forget all this, I want to sing and report sports on the radio." Well, she just did, in fact she's here right now. It's my hometown girl Chelsea Chandler!

(Opens lootcrate with toy blocks and gets the card with the winner)

Let's Ask America!

(LAA Theme plays; light to moderate applause)

VO: Accepting the award, the show's first host, Kevin Pereira.

Kevin: Thank you, Can't believe I won it here, to all the contestants on Skype, hope you all had fun with me these past 2 seasons. To GSN, thanks for putting my show on the air. To Brea Grant, thanks for getting me here to win this award, and to Bill Bellamy, keep up the good work, pal. Thank you very much.


Now to the spring-y stuff, starting with APril......

Minute to Win IT (Ohno) closed up shop for good and Drew Carey didn't win Bible. Mayday! May Day!

Bible 3 cane on the scene, morning changes, STYD went out of business and we saluted the class of 2005.

(song stops)

Now we like to award the Barry & Enright lifetime achievement award for excellence. It's been 20 years on GSN since it first aired, but the history of it traces back to 1962.

(lights turn out; cue film)

The Match Game first began on NBC as a little simplistic panel show. It had teams of 2 stars and 1 player trying to win cash. The show ran until 1969, but........

By 1973, everything changed. The stars expanded to 6 and the contestants still had 2. The premise was simple. Have stars write down what fills in the blank and have the contestant match the answer the stars gave. It was that simple.

Well, not that simple. Over the years on CBS and Syndication from 1973 to 1982, the cast consisted of Charles Nelson Reilly, Brett Somers, Fannie Flagg and more among others. Its humor and wild party atmosphere kept the show from being a hit.

After it went off the air, it paired in 1983 to team up with "The Hollywood Squares," another hit of the time. Although it ran until 1984, the show's host, Gene Rayburn hated his tag team partner Jon Bauman. After 2 false starts, he was too old to do another one. By 1989. Bert Convy was supposed to host but fell ill. However.....

It was Ross Shafer who took over. It somewhat ran in the lunch hour until 1991 and by 1998......

Michael Burger had a most recent version that ran for 1 season. Although today, many people can still hear & see the 70's nostagia that is.....Match Game.

(film ends; lights come back on)

and so, we present Match Game, the first ever recipent of the Barry & Enright Lifetime acheievement award for excellence.

(MG Ticket plug cue; quick ovation from the audience)

Okay, sit down, we have a lot more stuff to do.

(song stops)

Youtube sensastion Scott Bradlee came up with this next act. Turn modern hits into....something else.   Boys & Girls, Postmodern Jukebox!



And we continue.

Earlier this past weekend, more awards were handed out at the Fast Money Mart and they were.....

"Idiotest" getting the "Hum Along & Dance" award for best theme song. Catchy & very upbeat to fit the show. It also won an award for "#You'reIt" with this:


The award for "They Liked it?" went to Skin Wars. Because after all, body painting never had it this good.

The award for "I remember That!" went to the Tylenol Time Capsule events. Thanks for making your parents watch when they were sick in school.

The "Like a Boss" award went to Alice Conkright of $otc. Do I need to know who see is?

And the award for "Still Pimpin after all these years" went to.............Wink Martindale! 81 & his YT page is still goig strong.

Around here, GSN picks newbies depending on their Game Show experience. We have a list of nominees for Best New Host, so please.....reveal yourselves!

I know who it is......BEN GLEIB!

(Idiotest theme plays; applause)

Ben: Wow, you guys made it amazing. Thank you so much. I thought my show would never make it alive in 1 season, but thanks to you, you guys rock, I would like to thank my fans, Kevin Smith, producer & director for believeing in me, GSN for giving me a day job and you folks at home for supporting the show. Thank you and see you next month.


Me: And as Ben sits back down, we have a young songwriter from Nashville and her name is Maddy Newton with a song about saying no to a certain demographic. And here she is.



To summer we go.....
It Takes a Church entered the scene for the first time and SYTD ended the luch hour nightmare. Michael Larsen's run came in 30 years ago in June, but in July.....

We introduced the painters for Skin Wars and the Line came to Nashville for taping the event. With The Bible Belts winning TABC......

Idiotest arrived in August as did Skin Wars. One hour of classic got skinkwrapped thanks to DOND and some hosts took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge phenomenon.

(song stops)

Now comes the "Best Host" award. The Man or woman who directs traffic at what the game is and how it's played. The nominees are.....

Brooke: Wow. I can't believe I broke Jeff's winning streak, that is amazing. Man, I would like to thank Bob Boden for putting this thing together and Mark Labett, you made this show looks easy and to the fans of "The Chase," you made it the best show ever. Keep on watching, everyone. Goodnight.


Me: Now join me as we say goodbye to people who had to choice but to go 6-feet under.


(song stops)
Thank you. Here now is a hooper who thought it was basketball, but taking hula-hooping to the next level ended up as a slam dunk. Here comes....Rachael Lust!

By Novemner, The Chase held their first celebrity edition and for the first time ever, Tattletales came back to the network for a 1-hour encore. This month, Game Show Flashback was here with Ben & his comedy friends and "The Line" will be on its way soon.

And with that, the party's over. Thank you for making this award ceremony better than last year. We'll rest the next 2 weeks to get ready for 2015 and continue the 20th anniversary celebration of our beloved Game Show Network. Thank you everyone, happy holidays, Happy New Year and remember as on playas.

Revive us Again....and Again....and Again....

(Just because Hobby Lobby is closed on Sundays doesn't mean you have to wait longer at Michael's or somewhere else. SO get to Hobby Lobby today and get something for the holiday spirit. Online at

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: And with that, we start another festive week of GSN information to your brain. We have something to see & hear this week, so let's start off with....

The Starting Line.

Is GSN done with block scheduling? If the answer is No, then we'll tell. But if the answer is Yes......then why?

Well, if you look at it, There's "The Chase" & Idiotest on Tuesdays and Skin Wars on Wednesdays recently, but isn't going to work. That's because Feud takes over the 9 CST slot and the originals that premiered including Feud broke up. With the new ones on the way, it signifies the end of the block scheduling era as we know it, going back to just another 7 nights in this network.

In a sec, holiday programming and what's a revival? We'll define that.....but only if you stay tuned.
(song fades out)

(Quick fade out)
And that didn't take long to return. Bring in the rake, because it's....
Holiday House cleaning.
The week before Christmas brings in this......
*Game Show Flashback airs Tuesday at 9:30pm (after a rerun of Idiotest); replacing the 2nd run of Idiotest. This special reruns at 12:30am.
*I've Got a Secret with host Steve Allen airs Tuesday latenights at 2-3am.
*What's My Line with host John Daly airs Wednesday, Thursday and Friday latenight at 2am, while I've Got a Secret airs Wednesday, Thursday and Friday latenight at 2:30am.
*On Sunday, NBC's Deal or No Deal will air from 9-11am; replacing syndicated Deal or No Deal.
*On Sunday, Game Show Flashback will rerun at 11am; replacing syndicated Deal or No Deal (Deal or No Deal will still air at 11:30am).
*On Sunday night, "New to GSN" episodes of What's My Line? and To Tell The Truth air at 11pm and 11:30pm.
The new One at the top starring Ben Gleib will lose a 2nd Idiotest show, but Black & White Overnight makes it's promising return. Plus, never before aired episodes will air on Sunday.
Buzzerblog reported by the next week, "The Line" will have its 2-hour special on the 23rd as does rare color eps of B&W classics 2 days prior. Also....
*December 24th: Christmas Eve will present several different programming blocks containing something for just about any fan.
  • From 8:00AM to 12:00PM ET is Christmas-themed Press Your Luck.
  • Steve Harvey’s Family Feud airs from 12:00PM to 1:00PM.
  • At 1:00PM ET is a repeat of The Line.
  • 3:00PM to 6:00PM ET sees more Harvey Feud.
  • A seven-hour marathon of The Chase airs from 6:00PM ET to 1:00AM ET.
  • A 90 minute clip special What’s My Line at 25 airs from 1:00AM to 2:30AM ET.

WML at 25 on Midnight. This we got to see.

*December 25th: On Christmas day, a stack of clip specials airs from 1:00PM to 4:30PM ET, including Game Show Moments Gone Bananas, TV’s Funniest Game Show Moments, and Game Show Flashback. An Idiotest marathon then airs from 4:30PM to 2:00AM ET.

*December 26th: Spend the day after Christmas with a marathon of Steve Harvey’s Family Feud from 8:00AM ET to 8:00PM ET.

*January 1st: Finally, ring in the new year with a marathon of Baggage, ahead of its revival Baggage on the Road in 2015. A marathon of the Jerry Springer-hosted dating game airs from 4:00PM ET to 8:00PM ET followed by a new one-hour special Baggage: Most Outrageous Moments at 8:00PM ET.

Have to take the Idiotest Marathon on Christmas. 12 hours of Steve day after Christmas is what I want to avoid. As for Christmas Day.......Why is GSMGB repeating like Thanksgiving?

(song stops)

Sticking with Feud, the network made a goof when there are no longer "New" eps of the show. 180 of them were aired when the new season they acquired had arrived. Everybody makes mistteaks, huh? Now on to.....

The GSN Closet. It's our year-end clearance. Here are our favorites from our fans.

(song stops)

One last thing, we say adios to Mary Ann Mobley. A former Miss America winner, she was on Match Game and other shows too. May she RIP.

On to the 2nd intermission presented by It's Kristen Bell & Straight no Chaser with a new holiday joint.

My text reads the 3rd period, so let's do that.

What is a revival? You take a classic and make it work or not. Real simple, right? Well, Lingo got started in 1987, but 2 times is got revived with the Woolery version being the hit favorite. The Newlywed game had 2 hosts, but had 3 couples fighting over a vacation. The Pyramid wanted to bring back its classic self, but had 40 shows.....and it was over. Camouflage was revived, but had nothing to do with the 1980 version, so that's out. Look, when GSN revives another classic like IGAS did with Bill Dwyer or Chain Reaction with Dylan Lane. Will it be a hit or a miss? They'll know come developmenting.

Our blog is over, but don't forget you still have time to vote, because next week is the 3rd annual GTK Know-It-All Awards. Plenty of fun!

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.

Caught 21 with your pants down

(Hey there all you craftheads out there, Hobby Lobby is getting some stuff for christmas, Whether it's wreaths or whatever, Hobby Lobby has it all for you. Go there today.)

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: And let's start. First off....

Oh what now......

This is why we can't have nice.......oh yeah, it's teh GTK Video Phone. I wonder who it's from....

Oh, it's Miss Eckert. She has something to say to everyone.

Thanks, Lizzy. In case you didn't get the memo, GSN is turning 20 this year. Can't believe it's been a long time for GSN. 2 decades and still going strong. Can't believe they had so many classics, but now it's not much. The Chase & Idiotest are still King....& prince this year and starting next month, I'll set the record straight by giving myself the top 20 GSN originals off all-time. Yes, of all-time. The only times I won't do the countdown are the Year in review poem in which I always do in the new year, shorties in February, and the class reunion in May. So there. SO Happy BIrthday GSN, there's going to be a party everyday. 24/7/365.

Now back to the start with.....

The starting Line.

That dance sent Catch 21 host Alfonso Ribierio and Witney Carson of "So You Think You Can Dance" fame straight to victory. That victory broke the GSN hosts jinx for the first time ever. Technically, Apolo Anton Ohno did win before his Minute came aboard. Sherri Sheperd, Jerry Springer and Bill Engvall couldn't try it, heck, Drew Carey last season came....oh so close. But Alfonso took it all beating out Janel Parrish of "Pretty Little Liars" by Youtuber Bethany Mota. As for GSN......I'd wish they do a Catch 21 marathon in his honor, because DWTS isn't going to work. My possible window is 7-midnight on a weeknight. So if that makes sense, it might work for the network.

It was a November to Remember. How? With the month's Yay & Yawn.

The Yay: Chase getting a big return....with Wink this past week and celebrities of course.

The Yawn: The Thanksgicing marathons. It's all the thanks they get?

Collect your thoughts. After this, How to poke fun at a blogger........and where did the feast of favorites go? We'll tell you after a pit stop.
(song fades out)


(Quick fade out)
Back to the grind and all the actors are in place for.....
Twitter Theater.
Former Chase winner Cory Antonado gives us a warning....
Warning: The unhinged twatwaffle who runs Game Show Network News dot Bloodspot dot Com is impersonating staff members.
What in the heck is he talking about? Welp, to prove it, he says....
"@buzzerblog spoofed bob’s email address to promote his blog in comments."
But he goes on to say this....
"the man who runs GSNN has in the past used sock puppet accounts to artificially inflate his site and its stature."
Welp, He had a second person blog on this site, but it was a bit of nothing doing. Over on GSNN, one poster says...
"Buzzerblog and Alex Davis are sellouts.
I don't think Buzzerblog wanted to continue after being "Dead" for many months. It was probably pressure from GSN and the money.

Remember: Alex Davis wrote a review in which he LOVED the GSN awards. Then, he took it down because of something. He wouldn't elaborate.

On that episode of the Chase featuring Cory, he should have been ruled ineligible because he was connected to the network somehow. If people are ruled ineligible after appearing on Price is Right because they are part of CBS someway, then Cory should have been ineligible because he is connected to GSN somehow. There's a reason why Chad Mosher still hasn't appeared on the show yet but Cory has...."
Can't soembody settle it with a virtual handshake for both sites and be friends from now on?
(song stops)
Time now for....
Carni-poll. A ferris wheel of polls. Starting off with....
Would you like to see a Catch 21 revival on GSN?
71% say......why not?
What recent GSN revival was your favorite?
48% got The Pyramid with Engvall Lingo a close second and Ohno Minte dead last.
Which recent GSN revival should've lasted longer?
It's back-to-back for The Pyramid. If it had been for good players & would've been a hit.
Let's end it with.....
Should "Baggage On The Road" be considered a revival?
They say.....nope. It's just a season 4, so be it.
(song stops)
Now the 2nd intermission presented by
Here's Winter Wonderland the way you guys like it.
Here comes the 3rd period.
GSN had a feast of favorites back in the day. Now it's gone. All they had is Harvey Feud and Game Show Moments Gone Bananas. That's a darn shame. Where's the B&E library? What about the Merv Griffin library? Is the Goodson-Todman library still available? What about the GSN originals we haven't seen for quite sometime? Isn't it about time in 2015 that they need one? Well, they have to. And what about Black Friday? Bring in old SYTD episodes from 1991-1993. All day! ALL DAY! You heard me? We can't have another marathon of Harvey Feud like this, so how about Idiotest on New Years Day? That might work or $ale on Christmas Day could be a possibility. It's time for GSN to get their act together and turn it over to the fans for help. We need that outcry plea for favorites next year.

And...Poof! It disappeared. Today's blog is presented by Door 3. Hit up Youtube, search Door 3 and bam, a world of games by GSN's page alone awaits you.
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.

Chasing the Stars Away

(Before you gather the family for Thanksgiving dinner, hit up Starbucks for last minute holiday shopping....or to just hang out with a drink. Find one near you.)

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: Welcome to the building of solace and GSN is our life. We breathe & live into it, 24/7/365. Happy to have you here. Let's get into....

The Starting Line.

Just because 1 celebrity edition of The Chase isn't is rumored that the network can have a couple more. With season 4 on the way, teh stars will include Brian Letscher, Joe Morton and Kate Burton in one episode; in another episode recorded, Tatyana Ali, Carson Kressley and Cameron Mathison.
Only one is at this season which will conclude next month. No word yet on where season 4 will end up.

After this, December changes and the GTK awards preview. Hold off on the turkey casserole, because we'll be right back!
(song fades out)


(Quick fade out)
And you've returned. Time for some.....

House cleaning for my birthday month.
*Steve Harvey's Family Feud retakes the 12pm hour weekdays.
*On Thursday, Tattletales will rerun from 12-1pm; the same episodes from Sunday 11/30.
*The Chase and Idiotest return with new episodes on Tuesday night, 8-10pm.
*NBC's Deal or No Deal returns to the schedule weekdays at 5pm at the first episode; replacing syndicated Deal or No Deal. Syndicated Deal or No Deal remains weekdays at 11am, 11:30am, 4pm, 4:30pm and Sunday 9am-12pm.
*There is no "rarity" this Sunday night (12/7).
No rarity on my birthday? Why did GSN deserve this? But the NBC version of DOND will return at the very first show. That's something.

A Rare Rear End

(more people go to Starbucks for breakfast than Krystal, McDonalds, Burger King and Panera Bread combined. See why at a Starbucks near you.)

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: Welcome in to the only blog to ever figure out what a Mockingjay really is. Time to shoot for real. Aiming at the target is.....

The Starting Line.

The Chase got off in a big way. The Celebrity edition scored 610K viewers, which is down 8% than the September 2nd episode. The show is also up 26% per year. I'd say Chase is off & running. Let's see how the rest of the season goes.

In one moment, the future of Tylenol Time Capsule and A Moment to Live By. Stay Tuned. Why? Because your stepmom warned you to.
(song fades out)

(Quick fade out)
Now that your stepmom told you to, we're back. What's with the future of GSN doing rarities. Well, A story at Media Insights say that it'll run monthly. So in October, We had All-Star Secrets, Babble and Crosswits. Over at a site called Game show Paradise, one poster said:
Game Show Paradise poster: GSN puts the [old rarities] shows in terrible time slots.

Well, at first they put it in prime time, but nothing happened, then it improved at a late slot. SO will it stay here or go? I don't know.

With 2014 winding down, the new year will be promising for the network in development. Keep in mind, some will get the green light whoile others.....don't. Have a look at the lineup.
*Horror film superstar Jason Blum is helping the network with the new entry Hellevator. The series will feature contestants entering a scary, imposing warehouse via the Hellevator. The players will have to compete in various scary, suspenseful and emotionally exhausting challenges.
Good for SYFY, good for GSN? We'll see.
*Steampunk’d, from Pink Sneakers Productions, will showcase artists, designers and inventors who specialize in steampunk creations. If you need a refresher on what steampunk is, click here. Contestants will be challenged each week to make new works of art merging the past and present.
Can it be the new Skin Wars of the younger set? I don't know.
*How-To Games (wt) will challenge contestants to quickly pick up and master various difficult tasks with the help of popular internet how-to videos. Mission Control Media, who is behind the very-fun Hollywood Game Night, produces.
Um.....I'll watch that.
*Bingo Bash is based on the popular app and GSN game which sees over 900,000 players a day. One contestant will enter the studio each week and play against online opponents for the chance at big money.
That'll work.
*Winsanity, from Electus, will ask one contestant to arrange seven facts in numerical order, from low to high. Each successful round wins prizes for the team as well as the audience. If the contestants lose, though, the audience also loses everything.
Sounds dramatic? Yeah, I'll take that.
*Face 2 Face is a studio-based modern dating game using the technology of apps. The show, produced by Keshet DCP, lets one potential dater hear and see each the singles, as well as get to know anything about their personal lives courtesy social media. However, the singles cannot see the dater. The field will be narrowed down to one until the tables are turned and the final single gets to choose to meet the dater or bail out of the game before meeting face to face.
BTW, App Wars did a pilot with Danica McKellar hosting and there will be 3 judges which includes.......Atari alum Nolan Bushnell. Okay. Hope I'll watch it.
(song stops)
New segment: Faking The Rules. With the first season of Idiotest down, the very first 2 aired had a different Smart Money round. Here's how it went in case you missed out on it.
To win the $10,000, 5 puzzles had to be solved in 60 seconds. These were multiple choice/multiple answer questions. For every incorrect answer tapped on each puzzle, 5 seconds would be deducted. You would only win $500 per correct puzzle.
So it didn't have both players playing over the same puzzle? That's not nice. I guess GSN picked those 2 as the worst shows this week alone. Come season 2....things will change.
Time now for the 2nd intermission presented Cash Money & marvelous drop this......
Time now for the 3rd period.
Did you hear Steve Harvey was a grandfather?
It's true. But he can do everything on TV and radio. Let's see how the title of granddad suits Feud in.....A Moment to Live by.

Dog Tired. Today's blog is presented by any artist doing a christmas song. With the holidays right around the corner, it's hard to pick which version of "Winter Wonderland" is your favorite.
