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 we're right on time. Thanks for putting us in a joyride and getting us there. Let's start with....
The Starting Line.
Rhymz With Grace, The Bible Belts and the Devoted Divas are set for a finale you won't forget. 2 years ago, Judson's Legacy won the grand prize as did Wagner Warriors next year. This year, it'll be a big battle of biblical brains all for $100,000 and GSN has all the action.
In a few, The Chase off to a modest start, we'll tell you what happened and fans taking action against Sony. That & more after this.
(song fades out)
(Quick fade out)
Hey there, boys & girls, The Chase scored 494,000 total viewers. That's 2/3 lost from a break when season 2 was up. To do taht, we must head into.....
Matthew Jones tweeted out....
"Uh, that's not good. It was getting 700K-800K in most episodes last season."
However, Chad Mosher was wrong.
"[The Chase] is up from last season's premiere but let's hope it picks up steam like season 2."
We'll have to see how the rest of teh season goes.
I know what you're doing this weekend. Partying, dining out or.....going to Nashville to be on "The Line." That's what GSN viewers want to do. July 19-22nd will be the event. Scriptor, tell us all about it.http://www.qwizx.com/gssfx/usa/love-tally2.wav
"The Line invites hundreds of people to line up each day for a chance to win cash and prizes by answering a series of trivia questions. The goal is to get to the “Trivia Vault” at the front of the line, where each contestant can attempt to win a jackpot by answering eight true/false questions, but many will have an opportunity to play and win while waiting in the line itself. Those who make it to the front of the line will see the jackpot grow with each contestant who fails to answer his or her eight questions."
All they need is a host. Make that 2.
One is Jeff B. Davis of Whose Line fame and once tried out for teh announcing role on TPIR.
The other person is Candace Bailey who used to host AOTS on G4 until the very end, and hosted UPick Live on Nickelodeon.
I forgot to mention, there will be stunts involved while they get in the vault for that cheese. Can't wait for it.
With Skin Wars moments away, we check....
The Facebook Files.
Michael Yearsley has this comment....
"Why is GSN even doing this show? It's not even a game show to begin with. I bet it won't take long before it gets cancelled."
Spike or Discovery or A&E would've been good possibilties. You know. Next was Lane Crooks.
"Not crazy about it, you're moving too far from your roots GSN."
Where is your game show roots at, GSN? Scott Carpency should occupy this as a warning....
"Don't worry too much about it. GSN's schedule is still 99% game shows, that is, after this show premieres."
See? June Kinniback has this...
"Not anything I would watch. Bring back Catch 21 with new shows. That's my favorite of the new shows you have done. I hate Love Triangle...its like a trash show. And that's my opinion. You asked for it......do a new Match Game."
Well, they have the latter up in Canada, but Catch 21 is what I would bring back. And finally, this rant from Bryan Crump which happens to be a.....coffee break.
"Bodypainting is one of the earliest known forms of expression, makeup, etc. I encourage all of you to give the show a chance and go in with an open mind to art and possibility. You will see a variety of transformations and skillsets. All of these artists work hard at their craft and people at home can challenge themselves to create from what they are inspired by. Women do their makeup every day and that is a form of bodypainting, we may not think of it as art, but its used to help bring out certain qualities or help bring characters to life.
you like stage shows, theatre, cirque de soleil, etc. This is a chance for many to learn what it takes to create some of those wonderful visions. We clothe ourselves with art everyday. Some may be more conservative, but our bodies are not something we should be ashamed of. I am excited to see what this show can accomplish. If done right, it could really help open people's minds to understanding more of the human condition, perspectives, thoughts, etc.
Games are evolving in this day and age. We can learn a lot by challenging ourselves to new mediums, but judging the creative process before it even begins limits potentials. Our thoughts can be very powerful things and they can help us reach greatness or they can limit us and keep us from seeing the great things we can accomplish and who we can become."
oh hi. Sorry for that rant, but we get the 2nd intermission presented by swagbucks.com. The Double Clicks have got something for you....
And we start the final period.
When David Downs, Know-it-all got the bad news that the company that owns GSN got a copyright strike on his Youtube account, everybody spat coffee on their....phone or computer or tablet to see the bad news. What's wrong with Sony & Youtube? Well, they own Jeopardy! & Wheel. So what did some Youtube users do to take action? Well, they decided to take down every single one of J! and Wheel episodes. Look, the problem is that Sony makes more money. How in the world can they start a purge and end up with something reduced? GSN has their videos, but if you upload shows you recorded from your DVR.....it's a no-no. Jared Oswald has 2 strikes IIRC because.....I don't know. Shows with Old GSN logos as bugs? That's no problem. And because GSN is partners with Worldwinner, try not to upload any Idiotest or MOAM for teh most part. I saw one complete MOAM episode and so far........no copyright claim. What can Youtube deserve to do this with a company that owns teh Playstation? I have no idea. So until then, start taking down your classic or current episodes of Wheel & J!m because Sony may be in your inbox telling them you got a target on your back.
And so with an empty stomach taking us to Taco Bell, our blog is presented by "The Purge: Anarchy." What is the Purge was real? Find out in theatres July 18th.
Don't forget to email me at email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, Pierre Jason Kelly on FB and @Johnny_Arcade on twitter. So until next week, Play on, playas.
