Totally Crossed Out

(Party City is home to the WWE and you will find costumes to resemble the superstars. Go find them at a Party City near you.)

VO: This is GSN The Know. The most informed and entertained blog in the United States of America. Now live from his manor, Pierre Jason Kelly.

Me: Hey you guys. Time to stretch the truth and let GSN handle it for you. Let's start the stretch run with.....

The Starting Line.

Idiotest is falling down. Viewers couldn't cooperate with the format and it's host. Look at it if you will.

The 9pm ET episode had 316,000 total viewers (and a 0.1 in the 18-49 demo), a timeslot low which also dropped 26% from its lead in, The Chase. The 9:30pm ET episode saw a series low 245,000 total viewers (and a 0.0 in the 18-49 demo).

And that's from last week. Idiotest turns out to be almost dead. Will more viewers get back to where it was on the first week? You'll see.

After the break, The Chase's premiere date and Tylenol time capsule stuff. Synchronize your watches, people. Come back.

Halloween 2014 - Party City TV Commercial Ad:

(Quick fade out)

Back again and The Chase is coming month. November 11th to be exact. It'll have more episodes than ever before and Seattle plus another city will be the final audition cities this week. Another way to make it on tv is submit a question. To do so....

The Tylenol time capsule....wasn't so good. Why? Casey Abell explains.

"The numbers were a disaster. 117K/80K viewers for the two half-hours. It's ridiculous to put material like this in Sunday prime time. Run it on weekday mornings if you're going to run it at all."

Maybe Tylenol Throwback Thursday would've worked. But in 3 weeks.....

The Crosswits will come. However, it's not going to be the Jack Clark version. It will be the David Sparks version.

Alrighty then.

Since I have a smartphone, we'll move the GSN closet to either later in the month or next month. That way, I will no longer be contagious. If my coworkers handle the same thing, I'll bring hand sanitizer to the desk per period. But in the meantime, we'll do....

The Facebook Files.

Here's what people thought of the Tylenol Sunday experiment.

Kirk Heathers starts it off with this.....

"Love love love this.  Please continue to do this.  I appreciate you want to do more modern programming but having retro or lesser known shows or even pilots would be so much fun to watch regularly."

Howard B. Chak thought of Babble...

"I've never heard of the show.  They use the same opening theme music as Celebrity Charades."

Glenn Kephart has this....

"never saw either one until tonight both were on NBC. babble was from 1984, nice to see betty white from that era!"

Peter Planamente will finish it off with....

"I hope you guys do more of these Time Capsule blocks. I have never even heard of these two game shows last night. Great to see something old and different."

(Song stops)

One last thing: In the complaint dept., the video of All-Star Secrets wasn't clear enough to match the standard and high definition screens the network has now. Let me know if you've had that same fate.

Now it's the 2nd intermission presented by Svengoolie does it again. Here's another hit he's dropping.

Svengoolie: "Drills me like a Rock!" parody song:

Open wide. It's the third period. Trivia Trap is 30 years old. I'm not lying. A short-lived eneity, one program had the longest Trivia Race...ever. Forget the Daytona 500, it's....a moment to live by.
