Overtime #9: Drew Carey more

VO: This is Overtime. More about the network you know & trust. Here now Pierre Kelly.

Me: Hey kids, it's your old Pal Pierre talking GSN. Today we focus solely to a game show host named Drew Carey. Known for his shows "Power of 10" and the unwatchable "Improv-A-Ganza," he decided to try his hand at DWTS. ANd when he accepted, he said why not. With competition from a Sochi ice dancing team, Danica McKellar and AMy Purdy, Drew was ready to game on. It all started with a nod to Monopoly, something GSN would never get.....

He would survive that week, but week 2 came....
However, he survived yet again and week 3 came. This time, he mellowed out.
Another survival from them came and Switch-up night was in progress when he found a partner named Witney Carson from "So You Think You Can Dance," another show GSN would never get.
Even more of Drew came thanks to Disney night back to his partner and an ode to Aladdin.

The  next week came and he busted a move for his party anthem......

But that's when the trouble started.

Yep.  He was gone. Even the golden Roadies on breathed a sigh of relief. So next time you consider Deray Davis, Brooke Burns or Mark Labett, don't bet on it. Ever.

Moving out for today, but next week, we'll  move ahead with more GSN stuff. Play on, playas.

Does Fievel rhyme with Bible?

(Listen, I don't care if you want some ice cream, you need to get down to Menchies and buy some to make your warm weather a refreshing one. Menchies has so many falvors, there's even a mascot. Take that, TCBY. Head to Menchies today.)

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 ready to go. What a turnout it was at Mermaid Lagoon for the Easter Egg Hunt as I popped the balloon to start it and everyone including Eden Sirene participated and Anthony Hardy of WQFS/WUAG did live broadcasts from the location, but now it's out of Never Never Land and back to reality in this crummy building. Yep, we got another week of news and stuff to do, so the first period is underway. Hilty, with all this faith, trust & pixie dust....sprinkle me.

Catch 21 took it straight to the bank hitting the top spot, but Feud took 2nd and Pyramid 3rd. With the rest being Feud, Baggage climbed onto #9. Now the ones swallowed by an alligator.

MG and MOAM were tied at 242nd, but MTWI and P+ came. MOAM got sandwiched between Baggage and 1 vs. 100 before P+ rounded it out. Hilty can fly, second star to the right and straight on 'til morning. Go Hilty!

Time to separate the hard-boiled from the raw eggs in APril's Yay & Yawn.

The Yay: Bible in May. Need I say more?

The Yawn: The reactions to the It Takes a Church commercial shown on Youtube. Bible over Church huh?

After this break, new BIble teams and schedule changes. I'll text with Tinkerbell while you watch this.

(song fades out)

(Quick fade out)

Back again, kiddies and with Easter disposed of, we got new changes....

*Password Plus will replace Blockbusters at 9am.
*GSN's Whammy! will replace Press Your Luck at 9:30am

*Lingo (Woolery) will replace The $100,000 Pyramid at 11:30am
*Chain Reaction will replace GSN's The Pyramid at 2:30pm.

*1 vs. 100 (Saget) remains until Monday, April 28th will it will be replaced by The Newlywed Game.

On Saturday and Sunday, the 26th and 27th, Blockbusters will air at 9am and Press Your Luck will air at 9:30am.

All in Atlanta time, Whammy! will enter the morning stage. This hasn't happened since Karn Feud took over a couple of years ago. Plus, we get to have CR back. YES! More changes right now.....

*Another hour of Minute to Win It will be added on Sunday, May 11th only. The Ohno version will air from 12pm to 2pm while the Fieri version will air from 2pm to 4pm; which replaces an hour of Karn Family Feud.
*On Memorial Day (May 26th), GSN will air a 12-hour Steve Harvey's Family Feud marathon from 8am to 8pm.
*American Bible Challenge will rerun from 8pm to 10pm Monday, May 26th; replacing John O'Hurley's Family Feud.
*Game Show Moments Gone Bananas with Ben Stein will air Thursdays at 9pm and 12am as a place-filler for It Takes a Church.
*American Bible Challenge reruns Saturday, May 31st at 5pm, replacing O'Hurley's Family Feud.
*American Bible Challenge reruns Sunday, June 1st at 12pm and 7pm
*Game Show Moments Gone Bananas reruns Sunday, June 1st at 8pm.

*"New to GSN" episodes of The $25,000 Pyramid still start on Wednesday, May 21st at 10am.
*For the week of May 19-25, American Bible Challenge still keeps its slots (Thursday 8-10pm NEW, Thursday 11pm-1am, Saturday 4pm-6pm, Sunday 11am-1pm and Sunday 7pm to 9pm).
So in case It Takes a Church gets the heave-ho, the special with Ben Stein will air it instead of Harvey Feud. Good call? Maybe. As for Bible, it returns and hopefully it'll be for people who missed it.
