(The holiday season is here and you need to get down to Hobby Lobby today....before the elves take it away for good.)
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: And this is the Penultimate blog of GSN The Know. Our prep for Game Show Live! is mere weeks away. I was interviewed by every news outlet, share to everyone on social media and put up flyers all over Grimsborough. America, January 4th will be the date we will party! But let's get back to the action as we start with....
The whatstrending.com Starting Line.
America saw the preview of Divided, but who was the host?
Well, here it is.
Yes, Mike Richards. He wanted back in the GSN frame after trying hard with Pyramid in 2012 before Michael Strahan taught the EP of Price and LMAD a lesson in how it's done this year on ABC. Now he's back to gain his revenge on a short-lived UK show. In Fact, GSN did a sneak peek before the actual January premiere. I'll give you the link to click for yourself.....
There. The preview shows 4 instead of 3 and there is big money ahead, up to $100,000 for them to split......or nada if you decide way too long. Will this work in 2017? You'll soon find out.
One segment that won't go away come the renovation in January is our Yay & Yawn of November.
The Yay: Divided Sneak Peek. I wish it would've been a yawn had it been for the bickering.
The yawn: GSNN BlogSpot. Scott Rahner decides to close up shop. For good.
What are the 5 worst things to a GSN fan? I'll tell you about it......in about a moment.
(song fades out)
(Quick fade out)
As we promised you the 5 worst things a GSN fan can experience and here it is.
Ever wonder what it's like to turn on GSN and think to yourself: Huh? Well, here are the 5 things you experience the network in a worst way.
1. Too Much Feud
You see it every day. Karn in the noonday, Harvey at night, Dawson anc Combs keep rolling over in their graves and it's 100 times per week. Why is GSN making money off of it? Well....they like Harvey. Because.....they make big ratings.
2. Not enough variety to go around.
It used to be all classics and a little modern stuff back then, but now it's all modern and not enough classics. So why can't you add in classics on evenings? It'll make a dead graveyard of all sorts.
3. They want younger viewers
They want people thinking tey want to see classics for older viewers, but younger people want to see stuff past 2001 and beyond. Look at how the cable landscape is changing. They want to tweak the way we watch on TV.
4. Marathons that'll make you yawn.
GSN used to air a Feast of old school classics back then, but not anymore. All they air is whatever is on the schedule. It's like wet paper towels thrown up at the celiing.....or spitwads if you can call it that.
5. Switch to Buzzr
Yes, Buzzr. All the classics thrown in a 24-7-365 loop. As long as they get new episodes. Good luck with it.
Now the 2nd intermission presented by swagbucks.com. Another person that will not go away is Christa Nannos as she closes out Nan-November.
And let's turn on the 3rd period.
I wanted to do something fun. I asked everyone to finish this sentence.....
GSN Isn't GSN without.....what?
Ben Masters fires with Tic Tac Dough. That, I agree with along with Joker's Wild.
David Downs, my frenemy says Steve Harvey & reality shows. Really? REALLY??!!!!
Ben fires back With Card Sharks. Of course.
Jimmy Souders goes with Press Your Luck. Why not?
James Bamberg and Tood Wacha says real classic game shows. Yes, real classic game shows, not the phony "Sob story, wait until after the commercial for the result" game shows, the vintage ones.
Even Tommie Jessie agrees too.
Randy Hansen gets the Joker's Wild, of course.
Ryan Eaton and James Jagiello gets TPIR. We all miss the older ones.
Mark Stowers goes with The Whammy from Press your Luck, better than any other game show villain.
Finally, Christian Dixie goes with Classic Wheel, the way we grew up as kids.
Thanks guys for all your help.
Time to go everyone, the final blog before the awards show and the renovation will be next week. No need to get your Kleenex tissues for it.
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. Let's have Anthony Hardy of Captain's World get into the holiday spirit. Play on, playas.
