VO: This is Overtime. More about the network you know & trust. Here now Pierre Kelly.
Hey kids. 2014 means it is a new year, so we have our first overtime of the year. This month: MOAM going downhill. Recently, the show went through a time change. Since its debut last month, the shoe crashed and burned in the ratings, so we have 5 Who's to the downfall.
1: Who came up with this host?
Deray Davis wanted it to be a good host, but he's acting like your buddy at the bar next to you. I'm guessing his show may be a future through his career.
2: Who came up with this talent?
Alonzo Bodden, Skylar Stone Toccara and more have all stopped by to help out the funny, but ir dragged out seconds of gameplay into the fold. Keep the jokes aside for one person, people.
3: Who reduced it to 2 shows a week?
Premiere week came and 4 shows was going to be a good week, but 2 shows was killing and dragging viewers to slip out of contention. Maybe 4 should've done it at all after the premiere week.
4: Who came up with the High/Five round?
The Men's High/Five round was the deciding factor and that made it pointless to watch. They should've dumped it for the VIP question worth more money to decide a winner. That would've made sense.
5: Who moved it to 10/9 central?
I don't know. Because they wanted it to make it more to the late night people than prime people. If it works, it'll turn things around, but it is too late now.
Kids, we are done with Overtime. Tune in next month for what GSN will have. Play on, playas.

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. A cold reprieve to the week means winter isn't done without a cat fight. Come next month, everything will change. First period and Hilty will walk you through it.
Catch 21 snatched up the top spot and Feud took the silver and Pyramid settled on bronze. Feud went from 4-7 and DOND went to 8th parting the sea on 9 & 10. Now the dead walking.
After a tie between Baggage and Match Game., MOAM had a triple decker sandwich between P+, Pyramid and Baggage with the latter filling in the last 2 spots. Time for Hilty to feed zombie food.
February is a lovely month, but GSN had a love-hate relationship this month and we give out the Yay
The Yay: Chase dominates ratings. The Beast helps people crush pub quiz nobodies in his path. Season 3 coming. Expect more of it.
The Yawn: MOAM. Ratings going down fast? Move it to where newscasts and whatever else airs. And they're not even halfway to 40 just yet.
On the way: Tour woes for one GSN favorite and one more shortie to wrap up the month. I'll tell you about it after this.
(Song fades out)
(quick fade out)
and we bounce back with Family feud Live and the problems facing America and Canada. The Canadian leg cancelled shows because of one problem: Not enough people are selling well. As for us here, they're down to 2 locations: Minnesota and Rhode Island. You can go to familyfeudlive.com for tickets if you live there.
Hey all you classic fans. We got a story about the Chuck Barris shows that he made it his own in the 20th century. The only Barris show left surviving: The Newlywed Game, of course.
Deray Davis talks about the engine that broke down, and I'm talking of course, about MOAM. But while MOAM crashed & burned, let's find out what else was on that week by the time it aired.
Oh look, Ice dancing in Sochi....
(switches back to me)
And we switch over to the 2nd period presented by swagbucks.com. One last time, Lindsey Stirling boys & girls.
3rd period set to go.
Body Language is 30 years ago, but it however, wasn't short lived. 35 years ago, it would go to Celebrity CHarades. That would be short-lived. The concept was this: Have stars act out longer phrases to win money for charity. Joining in was Jay Johnson & his dummy Squeaky from Soap. Although it changed openings, the theme remained the same. By the time it came back form breaks, a song that would later become NBC's shortie "Mindreaders" is heard. AMC revived it with Hilary Swank hosting the festivities, but that was before Walking Dead & Breaking Bad changed the way we watched the channel. It would've made Fein-Schwartz proud.
Dearly beloved, our blog has come to an end. Today's blog is presented by dollar stores. Stretching washingtons everywhere you go.
