It's a trap!

(February means it's time to send your significant other Sherri's Berries. They're strawberries dipped in chocolate and at almost 30 bucks, they're a great deal.

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: Hi everyone, well the groundhog's prediction made you wish you'd curled up and read a book, but no, you cozied up with a blanket and ate frozen food while watching The Beast destroy trivia wannabes. That's what a GSN fan is for. First Period, Hilty, take me through this maddening.

Family Feud had a split in the top 10 and it was The Chase at the 6 spot. Now the hypothermic 10.

DED and MOAM was tied in 241st, but Match Game was sandwiched between Baggage and afterwards, it was 3 doses of 2 in the likes of MOAM, The Pyramid and Match Game. That's the first, Hilty, freeze up.

Just afterwards, we peep the Facebook files and dive into a month of Shorties. Stay tuned and stay inside.

Hey everyone. The second period is about to get underway and i heard a rumor.....

...that Rebecca Romijn Stamos will host the summer disaster known as Skin Wars over this summer. All i know is that she used to replace Cindy Crawford on House of Style on MTV back then. Oh i forgot, Amber Valetta and Shalom Harlow were in on it, too.

Marianne Curan, formerly of GSN radio game will play for charity on thr Radio DJ week of shows for Let's Ask America. The top prize: $50,000. She'll play for the Make A Wish foundation. I guess Bob Goen shouldve had a show higher than 20 grand.

And I think we shall do....

The Facebook Files.

Here's a fun one for you. Courtesy of Door 3, which show was a nineties dating show? Well, they had to choose between The Dating Game, Elimidate or Singled out and here where their responses.

Dean L. Adams first answered with Baggage. Uhh, judges?

That would be in the next decade.

Some A's were on the board, but a guy named Jacques went with Lucky 7....

And that too is a no. It was a short lived ABC program from this year as does a more well known TPIR pricing game.

Ernest Goodwyn gets the golden brain of the month for best answer. He put SO 1st, Elimidate next and Dating Game last before watching paint dry, the DMV and a root canal to the latter. Sick, huh? Now the 2nd intermission and brings back Lindsey Stirling for a 2nd straight year. What kind of violin madness is she getting this time? Watch.

And we start the 3rd period.

To kick off a month of shorties, I wanted to help me pay tribute to a show I love: Trivia Trap. This year will be the 30th anniversary of the 1984_85 game where Bob Eubanks presided over Juniors in blue sweaters under 30 and Seniors in red sweaters over 30. All they did was either avoid the right answer, agree on a correct answer or answer true or false statements to win money. If your team won $1000, you would play the ladder for $10,000. One problem: It was on opposite Wheel and Price. If it would've switched to earlier or later, it would've scored huge ratings for ABC. Nonetheless, the theme kicks butt as what I would call it Edd Kalehoff's greatest masterpiece. Even though it aired as a lead in to NYSI, Trivia Trap will always be my favorite GSN show.

That is the end. Today's blog is brought to you by sweaters. Make Mr. Rogers jealous by wearing sweaters for fall and winter.

Don't forget to email me at,, Pier Jason Kelly on FB and @Johnny_Arcade on twitter. We'll see you later and play on, playas.
