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 Jason Kelly.
Me: Right out of nowhere, it's GTK. Hello everyone. Had a great Easter lunch at Paula's Place this past Easter and by the time that top of the hour alarm came off, we did the Bunny Hop in lieu of the Hokey Pokey this week. Other than that, I had cherry coke and sloppy joes while watching GSN and I'm about to talk about it now. Hopping in is....
The Starting Line.
Look at this if you will.....
What you just saw was Brooke Burns trying to take over for Ben Gleib on Idiotest in an April Fools prank to commemorate the show's second season. The real Ben then took over. Brooke even introduced round 3 herself. BTW, she was dressed....as Ben. Ben even did the 2nd round intro....in Spanish. Quite a premiere, isn't it?
After a bit of a breather, How did the 2nd season do and more of our Countdown. Please stick to your squirt guns, people!
(song fades out)
(quick fade out)
And we've returned. How did Idiotest do?
Well, it drew 388,000 total viewers at 8pm ET and 360,000 total viewers at 8:30pm. Both episodes were new. The second episode fell 7% in total viewers from the first.
So, we're alright. But there's more....
The 8pm episode drew 148,000 18-49 viewers and the 8:30pm episode rose to 160,000 18-49 viewers. That is a 8% 18-49 demo increase from half-hour to half-hour.
So we may be hanging in there once the season continues to go.
To those who wanted a withdrawl of MMC like the ire it caused last week, here's a first episode as if GSN made its grandest debut ever......well, not that grand. Click the link for it.
RIP to Milton Delugg, the guy who not only led the "Band With A Thug" on the Gong Show Back in the day, but also on the 1980 version of "Camouflage" and the "1.98 Beauty Show." Also, James Best, who is best known on "The Dukes of Hazzard" as sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane who participated in an all-star Family Feud once. May they both rest in peace.
Elevator going up......
Where do all the Bible reruns go to die? On Up Network, of course. It runs every Saturday at 7EDT/6CDT. Better than BOTR, I guess.
Sticking with BOTR, I heard from its GSNN blogspot page that it is no longer on the roster as stated. I think what MOAM did last year was what BOTR did this year. You can't make a show that can't attract many viewers per its sexuality value.
Now on to....
The GSN Closet.
If Trisha Hershberger was naked, this is where she'll be ending up in.
Now the 2nd intermission presented by swagbucks.com. Such a lovely day here in the building and since it's April Acapella Awareness Month, let's crank up some Pentatonix for you.
Last period and here we go.
Time once again for.....
THE TOP 20 GSN ORIGINALS OF ALL-TIME!!!!!!
Let's track down #12.....
and get down to a race track to play.....Trivia Track. With GSN still interactive, this show had a fast-paced trivia contest in which you had to see who would go to the Triple Crown with your opponent. You had 4.4 seconds, which is almost 5 ticks to answer each question. You get a furlong for answering it, 2 for the next and so on until 5 questions and up gets 5 furlongs until you crossed the finish line. Larry Anderson and Marianne Curan was calling the action from 1997-98. The Trivia Track qualifies.....
in 12th position.
And with that, it's all over but the unplugged TV. Today's blog is presented by video game hunting. It'll make you feel retro all over.
Don't forget to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, Pierre Jason Kelly on FB and @Johnny_Arcade on twitter. We'll see you later and play on, playas.
