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: Here we are on GSN The Know. We're just a regular blog. Not some fancy schmancy red carpet pre-show, something out of a Broadway musical, audio glitches, war words to some rapper or things like that. We're just a blog never nominated for anything, but the weekly ceremony begins with.....
The whatstrending.com Starting Line.
The $25,000 Pyramid has been on the GSN schedule since it began. But one commenter had this to say....
"[The current $25,000 Pyramid episodes are] still from the current lease that they have had since May 2014. The current lease is a "split" lease; the first half of the lease consists of about 80 episodes from May-August 1985, and the remainder of the lease consists of every episode from mid-October 1987 until June 1988 (the end of the series).
I think there is a possibility (but I am certainly not sure) that this lease will expire this coming May because that will have been two years since this particular lease started. The lease before this one (which consisted of 200 eps. from June 1986 through April 1987) began in late May 2012 and was replaced by the current lease around the exact same time in May 2014. So, it's possible that the lease lengths are two years for Pyramid. If the current lease does indeed expire this year, we'll have to see if we get more new-to-GSN eps. of Pyramid, or if the show gets replaced with a different show altogether."
With May fast approaching, would the classic Pyramid be the victim of leaving for good? I would say have the 1985-86 episodes, because GSN hasn't aired them for quite some time. Better yet, have the 1982-84 episodes for good measure. Will Pyramid stay here or go away? Only time will tell.
Coming up, The chase gets the ax?, plus the lifetime achievement award to our janitor Clay, after these brief words.

And the GSN bonfire party keeps on going, but for The Chase....
The fire must've been out. That's because GSN has officially ended production on The Chase after four seasons consisting of 51 episodes total. This finally confirms speculation over the past six months since the launch of Steampunk'd with GSN losing interest in The Chase and going after younger-skewing originals. This is why GSN is shying away from traditional game-show settings and when you think settings, you think studio goodness. 2015 started the downfall with ITAC and Lie Detectors coming in. The show skewed older than any other orginal at that time. At least, it deserved a nice run. However, Chase will not give up, that's because ITV America is pitching it to major TV networks. Let's hope it'll get lucky than it was when it first aired.
Some more speculations. GSN is developing a "Truth or Dare" concept game show. The project does not have an official title, which could end up just being "Truth or Dare". Interesting. Plus, Chain Reaction and Hellevator are far more likely to be renewed than The Chase. GSN sees Hellevator as a show that can captivate younger viewers while Chain Reaction is viewed as more of a cheap filler for the network now which currently has a fairly weak development slate.
But I heard a rumor.....
...that Monopoly MIllionaires Club was supposed to air in reruns. That happens to be....
False. This was all partially due to the fact that the show was cancelled last week due to poor ticket sales. However, it's host Billy Gardell is interested as a host. By game shows, GSN is looking into Gardell to have involvement (likely as host) in one of their traditional game shows (rather than the non-traditionals Skin Wars, Hellevator, Window Warriors, etc.). We'll have to see if it works for him or not.
It came down to either $ale of The Century or The $100,000 Pyramid and due to a vote via Twitter Sale remained unanimous as the show GSN would bring back 70%-30%. Nice going.
Now the 2nd intermission presented by swagbucks.com. More Lindsey Stirling Appreciation month right now.
Now it's the 3rd period.
All About Faces was like watching "Candid Camera" or "Punk'd," but the teams in the studio had to react to an embarrassing moment as soon as the face was closed up. 4 rounds were played and whoever came out on top won and the winnings of a celebrity team were donated to charity. Dan Enright worked on it before the partnership of Jack Barry teamed up to start a 2-decade dynasty.
No need to ask, we're done. Today's blog is presented by Reddit AMAs. Because let's face it, asking a question way out of left field makes you ponder and think.
