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: Hi. This is Pierre Kelly, alias Dr. Feelgood, and like the Motley Crue song, I'm the one that makes you feel alright. I do all the doctoring of GSN daytime & nighttime, and have an office with a newsroom and a studio on everything that says take that other game show blogs. I make housecalls when people don't have cable so that they can understand what the meaning of GSN is and would like to meet on the front porch and invade your house with food.....if I feel hungry. I specialize in GSN and only GSN and have dealt so many cases lucky enough to have my own crime drama show. L&O is calling. You can afford to expect what's there on the channel. Every other channel: Out of place. Our blogger is hotter than the sun or the planet Mars and can strip the remote out of your hands if you change it to something else other than GSN. So let's get your prescription filled, because I'm out of the car with your first batch known as......
The whatstrending.com Starting Line.
When Woolery Lingo replaced Whammy! on mid-mornings recently, fans were thrilled to see it back, but I want you to click on this link first:
Most people think it's not the best Lingo and even though it involved money....
The 1987 version actually started it off with Michael Reagan hosting. Ralph Andrews actually invented the game and used a "No LIngo" round as a bonus for teams to not fill out a lingo hence what the bonus round said. However, it is similar to the Woolery version and the later 2011 version with clues that sound dirty.....but aren't. So either version of Lingo all started with the 1987 version, but the Netherlands carried the rights to it and by 2002.....the rest was history.
Friday on Overtime: The channel that gave Door3 the finger......Buzzr Digital. The beginning, the middle and the end. Don't miss that.
Time to review the practices and malpractices of May in our Yay & Yawn.
The yay: ABC's new Summer games lineup. Just when you want a break from watching the Olympics on NBC.
The yawn: The $25,000 Pyramid. Gone. Out of here. History.
After the break, Skin Wars may get removed from Saturday Afternoons, so go wait out in the waiting room where you can read girly magazines and watch Maury & Jerry Springer and courtroom shows and we'll return. Lauren LoGrasso and Roxy Striar will wait for your name to be called while in there.
(song fades out)
(Quick fade out)
Hey there everyone, while you were gone, Lauren or Roxy took your temperature, drew your blood, weighed in and used your tongue temperature to figure out how sick you are. And some people believe that GSN is sick of too much Feud. Why? These changes:
Changes (May 16-22):
*Family Feud (Harvey) will air Saturday at 3pm and 3:30pm; replacing a Skin Wars rerun
Changes (May 23-29):
*An episode of Chain Reaction (Catherwood) will air Thursday at 5:30pm and not Steve Harvey Family Feud, which was originally planned. This follows a 90-minute episode of Deal or No Deal from 4-5:30pm. This is all one day only.
*Family Feud (Harvey) will air Saturday at 3pm and 3:30pm; replacing a Skin Wars rerun (same change as 5/21)
This change means that Steve Harvey Family Feud will now air eight straight hours on Saturday from 2pm to 10pm ET. Yep. 8 straight hours of Feud. Are you going to watch anything else other than seeing 8 hours of Harvey?
More house cleaning stuff:
Winsanity launches Thursday at 9pm and 9:30pm. Both episodes are new and will rerun later that night at 12am, 12:30am, 3am and 3:30am; replacing Family Feud and The Newlywed Game
*Winsanity will rerun regularly Saturday at 8pm and 8:30pm; replacing Family Feud
*Winsanity will rerun regularly Sunday at 1pm and 1:30pm; replacing Family Feud
*Winsanity will rerun for one week only Friday at 10pm and 10:30pm; replacing Family Feud
*Family Feud will air Wednesday latenight at 1am and 1:30am for one week only; replacing The Newlywed Game
*Family Feud will regularly air Thursday and Friday latenight at 1am and 1:30am; replacing The Newlywed Game
*Family Feud will regularly air Saturday at 1am and 1:30am; replacing The Newlywed Game
Winsanity will debut on Thursdays and going forward, and will repeat on weekends. Feud will air in the late night slots to fill out the holes Sherriwed left. In 2 weeks, we will discuss Feud Overkill.
Sticking with Feud....
The same behemoth who rules the GSN ratings books will take the cover of People this week. Look for it in your local store.
Here's a little Whaley Mail.....
There's a person who is unknown, but it says....
"Sad to see "The $25,000 Pyramid is leaving the schedule. I really wish GSN would just add Donny Osmond's version onto their schedule."
Yep. Maybe it can replace 2012 Pyramid for afternoons. We'll see. Got any Whaley mail? Hit "Comment me, please" on the very bottom of my blog. Ok Whaley, fly off.
Now the 2nd intermission presented by swagbucks.com. Let's end the 2006 class reunion with a little KT Tunstall to get us into memorial day weekend.
So good! Now the 3rd period.
2006 was also the year in which High Stakes Poker invited poker players to play Texas Hold 'Em......with real cash. AJ Benza and Gabe Kaplan did the play by play of the action which attracted such poker players of the time such as Daniel Negreanu, Phil Laak, Sammy Farha and others. This was at the time at the center of the poker boom which attracted on ESPN and gained it to a worldwide audience especially World Poker Tour on cable. Nowadays, you can still watch ESPN for poker and FS1 for World Poker Tour, but GSN had it's own poker show from 2006 until 2011.
Looks like we're all done with a clean bill of health. Please remember to stay healthy and stay happy. Stay tuned for an all-new episode of General Children's Hospital after this plugging business.....

Until I call out the next patient, Play on, playas.
