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: Let's talk GSN, 'cause that's what I was born to do. How are the upfronts doing? For that, we check....
The Starting Line.
With Skin Wars and Idiotest underway, ITAC is already the new kid on teh block. The Chase is going strong with the new season set to get underway next week. What about the others? Well......
App Wars and Heavy Betters sent otu casting sheets for it this past Spring and may won't make teh realms of the airwaves. The Line is already casting in Nashville, Bobby Bones-land and they'll film it for this month. As for Star-Crossed Lovers and The Tunnel.......you might as well wait.
On the way, a plenthora of trailers about to make your Tv screens soon. Cook the kettel corn while you're at it, because we'll be right back!
(song fades out)
(Quick fade out)
And so here we are back on the Know and we'll get to them trailers in a minute, but we have some.....
House cleaning for the months of July & August.
*The Chase will air/rerun Tuesdays at 5pm starting July 8th; replacing Shop 'Til You Drop
*The Chase premiere (Tuesday, July 8th at 8pm) will rerun Tuesday 9pm and 11pm; Saturday at 2pm and 9pm; Sunday 1pm and 11pm (7 total airings a week + following Tuesday afternoon rerun).

*"New to GSN" runs of Pat Finn's Shop 'Til You Drop start July 25th in the 5pm hour.
FOr mornings, it didn't take long for Whammy! to get kicked out, but it'll be on Thursdays when BB and SP take their place with Woolery Lingo getting out. Also on that day, Sherriwed gets Bible out while teh latter take out weekend reruns like a dentist to ptu Chase and ITAC in. Newer eps of STYD will come in later this month.
But I heard a rumor.....
....that teh 2012-13 season of Feud takes place. It'll be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays if it happens in an attempt to make these 2 shows ratings gold. And by ratings gold.........nevermind.
Let's play 2....or 4......or 21.....
The master of Catch 21, Alfonso Ribeiro threw out the first pitch at a minor league game. The State College Spikes wore "Fresh Prince" themed jerseys for one game. Wonder why Mikki Padilla wasn't around.
As I promised you, lots of trailers as we hit.....
The GSN Trailer Park. Ranger Pierre here saving our forest and mobile homes one trailer at a time.
(song fades out)
With the Chase less than a week away, we start out as if it was a sumemr blockbuster hit....
Next, the Hottest competition.....
Next up, Beast interrupts Brooke.....sort of......
Then, they talk about Morons, of course......
And rather loving somebody.
And we move out of that show and onto Skin Wars, which we'll talk about in the 3rd period. There's an evolution to this.....
but it can take skills to pay the bills.
Finally, we end with an idiotest question.
And out of teh park and into the 2nd intermission presented by swagbucks.com. S.J. Tucker to geek out on you guys.....
And it's 3rd period time.
Skin Wars. A show all mankind wants to see. However, we at GTK suggest you not watch it. Why? Bodypainting. Would you rather see someone taking off somebody's clothes and having a painter take something to the imagination and create a masterpiece all for $100,000? Definitely not. Oh, there's another thing. Rupaul. Yes, the woman who....er, man.....or otherwise told us all "you better work" in the early 90's will be judging. Anythign else I left out? Well, I'm good then. Other that that, it's a trainwreck, a disaster, a bomb that's about to go off and a flop that's soon to be. That's all I have to say.
Oh wait, i have more to say. Today's blog is brought to you by Clackers. The most dangerous toy you had as a kid since the Skip-It Toy.
