VO: This is Overtime. More about the network you know & trust. Here now Pierre Kelly.
Me: Why hello there everyone. Overtime is right there where you find it and I'm Pierre Kelly. With more of our 20th birthday to GSN, we countdown 5 reality shows that made the air, and by reality, I meant shows with an outside ascpect and inolve some gameplay, talking to the cameras figuring out what happened and........you get the idea.
5. Dancing With The Stars
I put it at the bottom of the list, because everyone wanted to watch new episodes, rather than see reruns of a previous one. It was on weekends at first, but was trimmed away week after week until.....it was gone. Keep it mind, this was 2012 and nobody wants to watch coupels dance from recycled seasons. Ain't that right?
4. Skin Wars
Next to last on the list because bodypainting is what made it a phenomenon. We were thinking "Skip It," but everybody else was like....alright, I'll take it. With a summer release, when will the madness stop?
3. Family Trade
One season was this: Trade in anything for a car. Yes, all your video games and computers and TVs for a car. Apparently, they were like.......nope.
2. American Dream Derby
If you thought horse racing had it good, then it involved a competition to see which horse racer walked away with the top prize.....by horse racing of course.
and the top reality show is.......
The Amazing Race!
Last time I checked, it was on at the wee hours of the morning. Sometimes, it went to 90 minutes or 2, but it followed the same set of rules and won a lot of Emmys and guess what? It's still here on CBS and ain't going nowhere.
And with that, it ends our program. We have the rest of April ahead, so keep it on this blog for more GSN goodness. Play on playas!
