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: Thanks America for being in our midweek state, and thank you to everyone who showed up last week to not only celebrate Buzzr's 1st birthday, but we had a silent auction and dinner with everyone who are fans of Buzzr. But it's back to GSN. So lock your doors and windows, keep your remote out of bounds, because GSN is on time and under budget like a cuckoo clock, when you see a Beat The Clock stunt, it just goes tick......tick.....tick.....And we go undercover acting like superheroes day & night so that you don't want to miss out on what's happening here. To kick things off.....
The whatstrending.com Starting Line.
At first, Man Vs. Fly wanted to be a GSN program, but it's just an interstitial like TBS used to back then. However, it plagued Idiotest and other shows too. The same month it appeared on Door3's channel and then by the end of September chained a 5-month consecutive string of new bouts. But 2 weeks ago, it was just another boring old show when Door3 took matters into their own hands as they removed it. That was just it. Gone. The success of the show wasn't cutting it as it went nowhere near 2500 views. That's about less than any average Sarah Strubbe video. Or any less than famous YouTube Star for that matter. Last video they did was Backwards Binoculars killing a fly with a program. That was just the nail in the coffin. The reasons why were these:
1. Unsubbing and or commenting after Trisha Paytas got fired for....you know.
2. Every on-camera personality was laid off by the end of September.
3. Nobody cares about it in the comments.
Any more questions?
Don't leave. After this, what happened to Dylan Lane? So think on your feet while we take a quick nap for this.
(song fades out)
(Quick fade out)
back from the old school with a brand new thing.
It seems game show hosting is hard. Todd Newton made it easy after Whammy!, so did Kennedy, but for Dylan Lane........not so much. So where in the heck is Dylan Lane? Well, according to his LinkedIn Page, yes his LinkedIn page, here's his creditenials nowadays.
"I am a marketing professional who's chosen to follow his passion for renewable energy and emerging technology.
As a member of the Nissan LEAF electric vehicle launch, I realized that I could more actively influence the future of our environment. Enrolling in a Wind Energy program allowed me to refocus my efforts on alternative energy and change my career.
As a level 2 wind technician, I learned about the maintenance, troubleshooting and repair of complex mechanical, electrical, hydraulic and computer systems. I continue to work in renewable energy, but remotely monitor all North American GE wind sites. I look forward to improving work processes, working together on a team, improving the troubleshooting and operations of wind sites globally. "
Obviously since February of last year, he's in Wind Tech. I guess it's hard to get back in the real world these days, huh?
Unlike Lane, Lauren Elise....you know the girl who infamously wore a schoolgirl costume on Youtube almost last year is actually a rising star. And she's proving the haters wrong with this....
Although it's not a Sqrambled Scuares prize, it's an actual horror flick with Lauren playing Sarah.
Even ew.com speaks for itself.....
But that ain't all. She can be seen in "Attack Of The Killer Donuts," "Death House", "Depraved" and more among others. One tweet tells us she will be in the film "Doll" as well as a film shooting in NYC. Yep. Lauren knows when to laugh in the face of all who dislike her. So watch out! 2016 is HER year.
Here's a little something I like to call....
Next week will be this....
*Chain Reaction (Lane) will air weekday afternoons at 2pm and 2:30pm; replacing Catch 21 and The Pyramid
*Catch 21 will air weekday afternoons at 3pm; replacing Chain Reaction
*The Pyramid will air weekday afternoons at 3:30pm; replacing Chain Reaction
*Skin Wars: Fresh Paint will air NEW Wednesday at 10pm; replacing Idiotest.
*Idiotest reruns air Wednesday at 11pm and 11:30pm; replacing Family Feud
*Skin Wars: Fresh Paint will encore Wednesday latenight at 1am; replacing The Newlywed Game
*Skin Wars: Fresh Paint will rerun Friday latenight at 12am, Saturday at 4pm, Saturday latenight at 1am and Sunday at 5pm.
*Winsanity continues in new runs Thursdays at 9pm and 9:30pm and will encore Thursday latenight at 12am, 12:30am, 3am and 3:30am.
*Winsanity will rerun Monday latenight at 1am and 1:30am (replacing The Newlywed Game), Tuesday at 6pm and 6:30pm (replacing Family Feud) and Thursday at 4pm and 4:30pm (replacing Deal or No Deal). These changes continue going forward.
*Family Feud will air Friday at 10pm and 10:30pm; replacing Winsanity (which was a one week only change on June 6-12).
The fresh Paint edition take Wednesday nights with a feeling, but 2012 Pyramid won't go away as it drops in the 3:30 EST slot while Winsanity bows to continue its new shows on Thursdays for an hour. Plus, Feud will drop on Friday Nights at 9 CST. The Lane version will go one hour at 2 CST. The Catherwood version should've done it.
Sticking with Skin Wars, Tonight we have a very special, emotion-filled episode of Skin Wars. The five remaining artists will paint five models who are cancer survivors.
Samantha Harris, former co-host of Dancing with the Stars and currently Entertainment Tonight, who is also a Breast Cancer Survivor, joins Craig, Robin and RuPaul at the judges table.
This will be a show you won't want to miss.
Think you can play along with Winsanity? Well, now is your chance.
When you play along with the show, you may win some prizes. Very cool, huh?
Now it's a special edition of the segement people love....and hate.....
Say what you want to say.
We start with Cory Stewart and this comment....
"PLEASE GSN, put more classic game shows on weekday mornings! I already miss Blockbusters and Sale Of The Century and just noticed that $25,000 Pyramid is missing now too!"
Well, Blockbusters and $ale are on Buzzr. I miss $25,000 Pyramid. Here's an interesting name, Jedidiah McCastle.
"Can you try adding more Match Game shows at 9 AM? How about adding Back to back Press Your Luck at 8AM, Card Sharks at 10AM and Back to Back Lingo at 11AM. A little change to the morning schedule."
If you insist back to Back, that would be fine. Here's Marie Logerfo.
"Please add "The $50,000 Pyramid"!"
No. Barbara Burtt Giodano has this....
"same allergy commercial at least 8 x's today so far - omg"
There's your example of Cable TV. Here's Amber Jacobs and this....
"When are you going to start going to have a classic oldie day of game shows? You could do it on the weekend sometime instead of running endless hours of Family Feud and other shows that some of us would rather not see. ME, I could care less about Skin Wars and Idiotest!"
One day. Maybe one day. Joan Milley rings in with....
"Please put $10,000 Pyramid back on . I miss it already. Also, if you are going to continue to show Match Game on weekday mornings, could you please go back to the 1973-74 shows? I enjoy your channel."
Yes. GSN wishes they go back to the ones you mentioned. Sean Lane will end it with....
"So I see ONCE AGAIN GSN has removed 25'000 Pyramid from the lineup, and for what? A second episode of the old version of Card Sharks, I'm sorry, but this is a crap decision......"
But it's a good thing to see the classic.
Now the 2nd intermission presented by swagbucks.com. And now our GTK gypsy queen Robyn Cage talking about an arsonist.....and a thief.
And the 3rd period.
As of now, there are over 100 Family Feud slots filled out by GSN. Needless to say, but GSN is taking the pain seriously by replacing a Skin Wars repeat on Saturday with Feud. Not only that, a memorial day weekend has Feud all over. In fact, Saturday afternoons has Feud all over, too. Feud is way too much. WAY TOO MUCH!!!!! You get a daily dose of sex-filled questions, dumb answers and a bald-headed host and it's making me SICK!!!!!! In fact, it's making all viewers of GSN sick, too. So what I would do is write a letter telling them how sick Family Feud is and lessen the variety with more classics and original we haven't seen in forever instead of letting the vault rot away. So there you have it. That's why Family Feud on GSN is too much.
My word, we have to leave. Our program is presented by Starbucks' newest Strawberry Acai drink, now with strawberries. Ask for it by name and you get the pink drink. Because you can think pink when you drink.
Don't forget to email me at email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, Pierre Jason Kelly on FB and @Johnny_Arcade on twitter. Also I'm on Snapchat as MisterGSN and Instagram as Mister_WCW. We will return next Wednesday, and until we return, Play on playas.
