On your Mark.....Get Set......Where are you going?

(Starbucks has holiday drinks. Dunkin' DOnuts don't. Starbucks have friendly baristas. Dunkin Donuts Don't. Starbucks is very small yet warm & cozy. Dunkin not. Hit Starbucks instead 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: With the temperatures dropping, we're not stopping. It's GTK and PK is here to serve you throughout what GSN has to do and what to do. Let's do start with....

The Starting Line.

Family Feud on TV Land did nothing to deserve help from a network that once aired old shows....and still do. Yet GSN remained it's composure to their Feud as well. Look at the numbers if you will....

TV Land Family Feud numbers:
October 3 9:30pm: 643,000 viewers (compared to the 520K primetime average)
October 7 8:00pm: 489,000 viewers (compared to the 539K primetime average)
October 7 8:30pm: 601,000 viewers (compared to the 539K primetime average)
October 7 9:00pm: 696,000 viewers (compared to the 539K primetime average)
October 8 8:00pm: 607,000 viewers (compared to the 539K primetime average)
October 8 8:30pm: 603,000 viewers (compared to the 539K primetime average)
October 8 9:00pm: 647,000 viewers (compared to the 539K primetime average)
October 13 8:00pm: 361,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 13 8:30pm: 416,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 13 9:00pm: 483,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 14 8:00pm: 645,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 14 8:30pm: 719,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 14 9:00pm: 766,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 15 8:00pm: 513,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 15 8:30pm: 616,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 15 9:00pm: 579,000 viewers (compared to the 581K primetime average)
October 21 8:20pm: 363,000 viewers
October 22 8:20pm: 233,000 viewers
October 24 8:20pm: 355,000 viewers
October 28 8:20pm: 265,000 viewers (compared to the 428K primetime average)
November 4 8:20pm: 430,000 viewers
That turned 3 primetime slots into only one timeslot. BET, however, took the 9 EST slot, but reduced to just 9:00. The question is....Will TV Land or BET be the first to go? We'll soon see.
In a Few, Maratthons and Celebrity Clearances, We'll clear the mess while you watch this.

(Quick fade out)
Everything is now cleared and we start again with marathons. Lace up your running shoes, leave your Starbucks at home and strap on your running gear, GSN has turkey day marathons for you.....

Un cool.  But let's let the fans say their marathon ideas with a little poem to write about.....
Hey, I just met you...
And this is crazy....
So here's my Hover Ball....
Comment it, maybe?

"I like a Chase Marathon. I got cable in February, so I want to see the first two seasons."
Either that or Idiotest. Finally, it's this person with......
"I don't think GSN will air a new episode of The Chase the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, they didn't last year. So there will be 28 episodes by the time Thanksgiving comes around. Here's what I hope the marathons are.

8am-midnight The Chase (16 episodes)

Black Friday:
8am-noon Sale of the Century
Noon-midnight The Chase (remaining 12 episodes)

I really hope Thanksgiving and Black Friday aren't two straight days consisting primarily of Harvey Feud like it has been the last 2 years. Don't we get enough Harvey on a regular basis?"
Well enough Harvey is enough. Be that.
As far as "The Line" goes, it'll be a special instead of a regular series in December. Be watching for it. Welp, after a 1-month absence, it's the new & improved.....
Okay, not all-new & improved, but still new for you. Here it comes....

(song fades out)

And it's time for the 2nd intermission presented by She may have won America's Got Talent, but Emily West knew how to throw it down on the show. Here she is with this song.....

And let's do the 3rd period.

Celebrities on GSN have always been that way since the beginning. But some stars can't embarrass themselves. Why? By signing a waiver form in hopes they want to appear on TV. Joe Isuzu himself, David Lesiure was on Super Password, but why isn't he on this very network? Well, he was abysmal. Jon Bauman? Pretty good, but he's no longer there. Maybe it was before that Match Game-Hollywood Squares mashup I talked about last week. Tony Danza? Reason: Not good at Pyramid or any other game show either. It's hard to get big names who are still alive in there, but the ones who are dead may be. If you want to be a celebrity and get your name on GSN......sign away. That way, you'll see your name on classics and modern and you'll get residual checks for your appearances in 5-20 years from now. There, I said it, didn't I? So remember, If you see David Letterman or anybody else they haven't seen on Password plus or Super Password, let the network know and they'll help.

And with that, we sign off. Today's blog is presented by words you can't say at Chik-Fil-A. Making your job less crappy like Old TV.
