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: You watched GSN all week and we're ready to party. You stuck-ups at home, this blog is for everybody. We'll Shama lama ding dong, then we'll dip da dip all day & night, we'll bangarang until it's time to call it a week. So let's CLANG!........with....
The whatstrending.com Starting Line.
What game show featured 4 couples turned 50 years ago? The answer is.....
The Newlywed Game. A show associated with Bob Eubanks and Chuck Barris producing, but Nick Nicholson and Roger Muir created it for the company. The premise is to find out how much they know each other. It had many incarnations with Bob, but one with Paul Rodridguez in 1988, another with Gary Kroeger in 1995 under different rules and currently with Sherri Sheperd stayed afloat with the times, but Carnie Wilson hosted prior to Sherri too. Happy 50th Newlywed game!
Can Winsanity be pulled for hiatus? The answer in just a blarrrgh.
(song fades out)
(Quick fade out)
It looks like we're.....flinged! But I heard a rumor.....
....That Winsanity may be in hiatus. Despite poor ratings, Winsanity will remain at it's regular slot. How in the world did Winsanity should've taken a hiatus at all when they decided to remain in its timeslot despite what's up on Thursday nights? My best bet is to move to Friday nights or at least an hour or 2 earlier than the timeslot.
Sticking with Winsanity things, they were down 15% in total viewers this past week. Ouch.
A bit of a house cleaning note:
*In Tuesday latenight, Baggage will air at 3am and 3:30am; replacing The Newlywed Game
*In Sunday latenight, Baggage will air at 2am and 2:30am; replacing The Newlywed Game
Expect an hour of Jerry Springer and secrets on both of those nights.

It's time for another installment of....
Let's ask the Know-It-all. Someone down at Texas Christian University told me which shows would you replace in favor of Harvey Feud down to 50 airings?
Well, I predicted it earlier this month and if I replaced it, it would be this...
The New Chain Reaction (1986-91), Jackpot! (Darrow), Bumper Stumpers, Trivia Trap, Now You See It, Millionaire, Classic Newlywed Game, Cram, Friend or Foe and Sherriwed.
There, you happy now?
