Take someone else, I'm not yours

(Easter is fast approaching, but you need to get to Menchies for all the fro-yo you can get. Perfect for Easter Sunday and every day, it's Menchies.)

VO: This is GSN The Know. The most entertained and informed blog in the United States of America. Now live on location from Mermaid Lagoon, Pierre Kelly.

Me: Hi everyone. We are live from Mermaid Lagoon for the first ever Easter egg hunt. All the famous mermaids including Mermaid Melissa will take part in it and I will be the official starter. How's that? But let's take a moment or two and talk GSN. Hilty is ready for the hunt as period one starts.

This was no April fool as Family Feud took up a record 23 slots so far for the year. Now the bad eggs.

MOAM was blindly scattered with Baggage but the 1/2 hour 1 vs. 100 entered the list. DED was sandwiched between the latter and P+ rounded it out. First period over. Crack out, Hilty.

Just after the break, new morning for GSN? We'll tell you. And It Takes a Church. How did this ad came to be. The answer is next.

(Song fades out)

1977 Coca-Cola "Coke Adds Life" TV commercial:

Since you didn't go anywhere, we begin the 2nd period and I heard a rumor.....

.....That come the day after Easter, this would change.....

8:00 AM Match Game 8:30 AM Match Game 9:00 AM Password Plus 9:30 AM Whammy 10:00 AM 25K Pyramid 10:30 AM Sale of the Century 11:00 AM Super Password 11:30 AM Woolery Lingo

But there is more.

Besides the daytime changes, American Bible Challenge returns for its third season Thursday, May 22nd from 8-10pm with Steve Harvey's Family Feud as a lead-in, lead-out. American Bible Challenge reruns will also air Thursday late night at 11pm and 12am, Saturday afternoon at 4pm and 5pm, Sunday at 11am and 12pm and Sunday night at 7pm and 8pm.

Minute to Win It (GSN) has its last new episode on Tuesday, April 29th with reruns staying on Tuesday nights at 8pm (and Tue. 11pm, Sat. 2pm, Sun. 12pm) throughout May.

Mind of a Man will have its last new runs on Wednesday, May 14th while reruns continue in the same timeslots during the week of May 19-25.

In addition, starting later in May there are "New to GSN" episodes of The $25,000 Pyramid.

But by next weekend.....

*At 9am, Blockbusters will replace Password Plus. *At 9:30am, Press Your Luck (80's) will replace Whammy!

And they're all shown via New York time. So why the changes? I decided to revisit that corny poem to haunt you.

Hey, I just met you....
And this is crazy....
So here's my Lite-Brite... Comment it, maybe?

That'll make the mermaids swoon. Anyways, the GSF blogspot page set off a firestorm and we start with a few of them.

"I hope Wheel of Fortune and classic Family Feud comes back to GSN."

Danny Dalympie started it off with a prayer, but that no-goodnik of YouTube named Zach Horan has this.....

"SO only $100K Pyramid leaves the schedule. I don't think they run anything from between 1990-1999 at this point, and haven't run anything from those years recently, with the exception of a couple of COmbs Celeb Feud episodes from the early 90s Bullseye era last Thanksgiving and a 1994 episode of Feud in the wake of the Dawson bucket kicking a couple of years ago. I'd wager that church-based dating show doesn't become a hit for them. Probably would have better off doing another season of Baggage or Newlywed."

I agree. Both of those should've had another chance. On a more serious note, let's do.....

The Facebook Files.

Ah, I see the mermaids swaying to the song. Wonder why I played this? Anyways, when the network's official page showed us a clip of It Takes A Church in which we'll discuss in period 3, the reactions were left alone to themselves.

Austin says this as a reaction.

"No. Much like a neutered dog, you don't get it. We don't want dating shows. We want the classic game shows back."

Heck yeah! Tricia Norman, your turn.

"you have got to be joking. this is the dumbest idea ever for gsn. it's not a gameshow, it's a reality show that no one else wanted. I would rather watch a black and white rerun of an old gameshow before I'd watch this or 'mind of a man'. at least I know I won't miss gsn when I downgrade my cable package. this makes me want to cry."

And that's why Family Trade last year made sense. One more from Theresa hale-Wagoner.

"Think u need to leave the church out of a game?"

Um, probably it takes place in churches across the country, so be watching for it.

(Song stops)

2Nd intermission time presented by If a female wants to carve out a career in video game acapella, let Smooth Mcgroove handle it. He can do it all. Action. Adventure. RPG. Pick the genre, he'll do it for you. Here's one for example.

Phoenix Wright - Cornered Acapella:


Look at that. Even the mermaids love him. Now to thr 3rd period.

Find Your Soul Mate / It Takes A Church Premieres…:

It takes a church is GSN'S newest creation, but many people thought it was not going to be a hit. When I looked at the clip for the first time, I was stunned as to how the format was. Then I sent it to the group page. They got it right this time. Did Christian Mingle overlook at this just to make sure? Well......yes. As far as the show goes, it could be an absolute flop to most people, but for me, I think it'll go in the way of Bible. We'll see how it turns out come premiere time.

That pulls the plug for this week. Today's blog is brought to you by Easter wear. Perfect for Easter Sunday, but tacky for any game show contestant.

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.

Alright mermaids, let'!
