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: On a sugar rush and ready to go. Thanks for feeling the candy crush on GSN. We'll snack on Kit Kats, Almond Joys and Twix while you watch Idiotest, The Chase & more. Before you make the dentst freak out....brush 2x a day, people, let's do......
The starting Line.
It's time to answer the age old question.....
What's Wrong with....?
Every so often, I take a modern game and tell you what the heck is wrong with something. So.....
What's Wrong with Syndicated Deal or No Deal?
To give you a better idea, here's the answer. There are only 2 models from the original 26 ladies from the NBC version, and only 26...., yes 26 civilians play models. Sadly, you can't win the million, but you only get half a million dollars. Everything went well in the first season, but by 2010....it all came to a halt. The reason: It moved to Stamford where most of the NBCU talkers and Millionaire reside today and ratings falling like a shooting star. Guess they prefer Wheel over this. And that's what's wrong with syndie DOND.
Don't run out to the gas station and get Mounds just yet, because after this, ITAC is gone and something is replacing it. Stay here or else the tooth fairy will take your M&Ms.
(song fades out)
(quick fade out)
back to this adrenaline rush we call GTK.
Starting next week: Idiotest reruns replace It Takes a Church starting Thursday, May 21st at 8pm and 11pm ET. The last new episode of It Takes a Church this season will air May 14th at 8pm. The Newlywed Game replaces It Takes a Church Saturdays at 1pm. So you got an extra night of Idiotest to play with. But....
This just in...
According to the GSN Online Schedule, Lie Detectors has been removed from the Saturday 11pm and 11:30pm ET slots. Lie Detectors has been replaced with Idiotest effective this Saturday, May 16th. The changes also remain May 23rd, according to new advanced schedules at GameShowFollies.
For realz? More Idiotest? Looks like everybody's wants to watch Ben instead.
I was reading a report from Hollywood Junket and what the rules of Chain Reaction are the same as it was in the Lane version, except round 3 will be the betting chain. The same round that instantly killed viewers. Oh and the winning team will have 45 ticking seconds to complete a chain worth.......$5000. The same $5000 Lie Detectors handed out? That's just wrong. Next week, the reactions to the new bonus change from you. Yes you.
Since the GSN closet is getting a renovation, let's do a new feature in which we take somethig GSN related and add in something else GSN related. It's.....
Something to Think About.
Lie Detectors was one & done in one week. It was the first GSN original to do that, but the only one that wasn't the original ran longer and that was "Show Me The Money" starring William Shatner....which lasted 2 weeks....and it was over. And that's Something to Think About.
Now the 2nd intermission presented by swagbucks.com. Ciara continues the 2005 class reunion with....
and oh yeah, it's the 3rd period.
How did GSN kick off 2005? By taking us to Horse Racing. American Dream Derby was by the same guys that gave us "Fun House" took us on a reailty ride as jockeys competed in different challenges with the loser getting kicked off the show in a match race to the death, winner take all. By the live finale, 3 survivors and 5 more based on call-in votes, yes this was before smartphones were all the rage compete in a race to the finish for all the bling bling. And it only ran for teh first 2 months of teh year. BTW, Leann Rimes did perform on the finale. She of course, was married to Dean Sheremet at that time. American Dream Derby....divorced by the network.
And with that, it's time to ride off into the horizon. Today's blog is presented by dubsmash.com. Everything you say is said by something else. Here, I'll show you....
Okay that's enough, on to plugging.
