I spy with my trusty little eye.....

(You know where I got my free spicy guacamole? Moe's southwest grill. So many options for Mexican food, which one can you get? It's all here at Moe's.)

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: Oh hey guys. Another day, another week to make you feel like a game show fan. Hilty is here and is ready to get popped like a toaster. First period time!

Family Feud yet again dominated the charts with one smidge, Catch 21 at 7th. Now comes the burnt toast.

Baggage and MOAM were both tied at 242nd, but it was 1/3rd of a triple stack with Baggage on the bottom. 2 more MOAM came in and went in between the 1/2 hour 1 vs. 100. A double dose of Blockbusters rounded it out. That's the first period, Hilty is about to make cinnamon toast.

Time for us to get pop-tarts out of the vending machine, but come back for the 2004 class reunion and much much more, I promise you, if you go away right now, some perky musical theater cutie will serenade you with a medley of songs from "Frozen." Heard them and they sound great, too. Come back, would you?

(song fades out)

(Quick fade out)

And you're back. Good thing the serenade had to be called off or something. Anyways.....

Photo: We couldn't be prouder!! Congratulations The Chase usa and The American Bible Challenge on your Daytime Emmy® Award nomination for Outstanding Game Show, and we want to give a big congrats to Jeff Foxworthy for receiving an Outstanding Game Show Host nomination!

GSN never had something bold & big to get achievments.....until now. The Chase and The American Bible Challenge are nominated for Daytime Emmys as does Jeff Foxworthy for hosting the latter. Let's hope it'll be a clean sweep for the network.

Oh, and as for App it yourself.

Photo: GSNers! We are #casting all types with phone app ideas for our new show #AppWars. Take a look & Apply ASAP! Good Luck!

Oh, and if you happen to live in the LA, NY or Chicago area and would have a dream job working for the network, they got some openings there. Click here and see why....

Matter of fact, let's do......

The Facebook Files. They want to be in on this. Jacob Fox goes first.

"I would love to but I am only 15 and I live in Canada. But I could suggest some shows such as split second with monty hall or maybe making a marathon showing unsold game show pilots for a day."

Actually, since you are a canadian, GameTV is their version of GSN. Maggie turner, What do you say?

"Hire me and there would be an immediate corporate takeover where I would get Richard Dawson's Family Feud episodes back on the air, and also find a time slot to show all of Ken Jenning's Jeopardy games."

Cool. Melissa Dillon, you're up next.

"If I would work there, I would try to encourage them to put on the air shows I use to watch; Supermarket Sweep, Scrabble, Joker."

Maybe I would get Scrabble out since it's owned by Hasbro, but Sweep & Joker would work. Owen Crawford to end this feature.

"I would have all classic game shows M-F. All GSN game shows & 90s, 2000s game shows on weekends. daily pilot game shows & BW block on Midnight shift!"

That's a great idea.

(song stops)

Now the 2nd intermission presented by Since we're in the month of May, it's our annual tradition of playing songs from a decade ago. Here's Jay-Z's future wife with this....

And now, the 3rd period.

When GSN changed in 2004, one show on the list was SpyTv. Yes, Spy TV. The first acquired under the new name which we'll talk about later on, was a primetime NBC show. Being a Candid Camera ripoff itself, they decided to use the hidden camera aspect used also by the MTV prank show "Punk'd" which was created by "Two and A Half Men" star Ashton Kutcher. Season 1 used Michael Ian Black while the 2nd used Ali Landry of "Eve." One of the directors on the program was former host of Nickelodeon's "Finders Keepers," Wesley Eure. Something we all didn't know. That's just SPY TV for you in a nutshell.

Out of the studio and today's blog is presented by hidden object games. They wished you'd clean up your room, but you wouldn't.

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.
