Horror Movie Block Party

(Going in spirit means you aren't actually going, but going to Spirit Halloween means you are going. See why at a Spirit Halloween center near you.)


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: Play ball! Welcome to the blog that gives a grand slam on your TV. We cover the bases on GSN and only GSN, and load it up with a double or a triple play of your favorite show. It's time to go yard, so let's begin with....

The Starting Line.

With Hellevator inching closer to October 21st, a lot of people seemed to be disliking the fact that it's a very scary program and would be scaring the bejesus out of anybody watching and changing it to Buzzr or something else instead. These are some of the comments via GSN's Facebook page.

"Why would this be on the Game Show Network?? Doesn't look like a game at all!!"

"GSN..do you even know who your target market is.. Do you guys understand who is really watching this network? You guys are failing. Go back to the boardroom. You have it wrong.."

"I dread this! Will definitely change the channel!"

"I am so sick of the screaming commercials. Please make them stop."

"I have to mute the commercials two or more times a show. : /"

"Omg, lighten up on the commercials! The screaming is ridiculous!"

"How do you think people with anxiety feel? Getting scared because of these stupid things!"

Those come from people who watch GSN religiously and say that it's too much of a scary game. Look, it's only October and nobody wants to watch a horror game show, but when it premieres, we'll see if they're right or not.

Is that all that I could say? Nope, because after the 7th inning stretch, we check out the quarterfinals of Steampunk'd. While I go take a selfie in the break room, I have something new for this month. I want to introduce you to Jamie Petitto, former Idiotest contestant and now web star of her own series to give you DIY ideas for Halloween. So Jamie, give the people what they want.

(Quick fade out)
Welcome back, party people.
I heard a rumor....
...That Chain Reaction may go into syndication next year. With the ratings being trounced a bit by NFL Football and pretty soon, the NBA on TNT, I'm thinking it'll be a good way to take Celebrity Name Game out if the cancellation stamp marks on the latter.
Hellevator lets the fans ask your questions. Jason Blum and the Soskia Sisters were the answer heads that were involved. Here it is....
On to Steampunk'd stuff and it's the Quarterfinals.
The players went on a nautical bath,
but it wasn't something with math,
Because Chloe Dykstra was in,
she took a guest judge swim,
And we're off on our steampunk path.
Miss Morgan led a team of Red,
But J.W. took that W to bed,
But when it was time to pick,
Eddie was the short end of the stick,
and off with his...bloody little head.
(song stops)
Ouch. Time now for some Whaley Mail.
Glad I got my goggles for it. Remember Amy Doutt from Last week, well, she comments this about Hellevator....
"Hate horror. Hellevator does not belong on a family network. Take it to Chiller. It is airing in family viewing time. The Chase is a much better show for this network. Telling viewers over 50 y/o they do not matter is discrimination. Maybe we should let AARP and Consumer Cellular, who advertise on GSN, that viewers over 50y/o, who bring high ratings, do not matter."
If Spike, SyFy or Chiller as Amy mentioned would've fit this show in a bag, GSN would keep on being family friendly, but now it's not. Nobody over the age of 50 wants to watch a horrific game show. I said Horrific, didn't I? Look at Skin Wars. People under the age of 50 made it a hit. Will Hellevator follow suit on GSN? My Answer: No. Alright Whaley, leave.
According to the twitter handle of Mike Catherwood, new eps of Chain Reaction will be somewhere....
Between thanksgiving and christmas!!!!  
If you put it this way, it'll be a time when they go holiday shopping.
Another thing....
Buzzr is doing a pick & play. 5 were on GSN, and 1 is not. Go to Buzzr's FB page for more.
Now a segment in which GSN fans face their fears. Does Hellevator scare you? Are you frightened that there is too much Feud going on? What's your favorite horror movie? Well, don't be scared, it's....

Say what you want to say.
And now a letter from Warren G. Richards. He writes:
"The whole reason I sometimes watch GSN is to forget about the crap that's happening in the world. If I wanted to be frustrated and startled, I would tune into FauxNews or NooseMax, so I really hope GSN cancels its not-yet-debuted show Hellevator sooner rather than later.
It's really too bad that recruiters for Family Feud almost always have church families cast on that competition too. Apparently Family Feud has become a de facto indoctrination destination for this and other ...nations.
Take care and hang in there, everyone.
All the best,

I'm hoping it may....if November comes. Gregory Besso has this to say....

"Guys, you'll create new shows until the cows come home, I'm sure. Programs come and go. But whatever you do, DO NOT remove The Chase USA from the lineup. Please and thank you!"

Of course. You can't take Chase out of the lineup. Here's Linda Rudge.

"Who picks the shows on GSN???? They stink. Steampunked, Idiottest, now Hellevator. The only shows that are any good are the old game shows. I like a game show that I can follow. You even ruined Chain Reaction. Sorry for the harsh review but I like game shows and wish someone at GSN researched what people like."

Well, it's Amy & crew that makes the show stay alive and CR is somewhat ruined by it's $5000 prize and uh, it's 45-second bonus game. Next is Kevin Brietenbach.

"Does anyone else think they show Family Feud way too much. Don't get me wrong I like Family Feud, but show more shows during the evening time slots. At this rate they should change the network name to FFN. "Family Feud Network." you show it 10+ times a day. Please change it up a bit."

Everybody knows Feud does make bigger ratings. Let GSN be GSN. Tony Res with this.

"I just finished watching this week's Steampunk'd and something is steaming all right. It's lying in the middle of the floor right now.
Does Ms Morgan have pictures of someone doing something illegal or what? She FAILED the challenge. Her costume was not steampunk at all.
I'm guessing it is Ms Morgan or Glue-zilla aka Ave who win the show. Which is truly sad when you consider how often these two have been in the bottom. The ad about the steampunk pet claiming these two are among the most talented builders? What a load of crap.
I've just cancelled my recording of the show after seeing one of the whinny sisters dodge the bullet again."

There's your Steampunk'd review in a nutshell, folks. It's Frank T. hughley and this.....

"Watching the guy punching the locker tonight surfing the channels, and you wonder why nobody watches STEAMSUCKED?"

Um....because it wants to be cancelled quickly? Last one from Marsha Sage.


And why are you using Caps Lock? Are you on some disease or something?

Now the 2nd intermission presented by swagbucks.com. It's that time once again, time for Svengoolie to have his monster parodies for this month. Here's the first.

Landing in is the 3rd period.

From the theme that pays homage to the time when Stax, Motown and James Brown were hits on the radio, to it's game board, the 1980-82 and again in 1987 game of Blockbusters focused on red vs. white, but it was the Cullen version that had a single player vs. family pair handicap match. Combine in the game of Hex board game with the letters of the alphabet that begin with a single letter and you've got a hit game show Goodson-Todman made. The reason why Blockbusters got Emmy nominations for the Cullen version alone, was because of the humor of its host and excellent game play. The Rafferty version.....not so much, because of the graphics and not an actual game board and it was short lived. And it had 2 players instead of the handicap. But either version had a Gold Run bonus game in which you had to connect from gold to gold for a $5000 payday using initials to come up with answers. And now on it's 35th year and is now on Buzzr, we give props to Blockbusters, a true G-T classic.


So with that, there's the final out. Our blog is presented by Peeple. It's like Swarm getting together with civilans in one giant French kiss. Ick!

Don't forget to email me at kellypierre8@gmail.com, coppockonsports@yahoo.com, Pierre Jason Kelly on FB and @Johnny_Arcade on twitter. We'll see you later and play on, playas.
