Spin the Bones

(Horror Block is so perfect for October, not even MLB can't touch it. Lots of items for a low price and it's so won't believe it at when you subscribe to it.)

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: It's time to do my part for the network for the young, old, college kids, young adults, pets and young at heart. This channel will drive your body wild like Bobby LaBonte and not overhyper and not Lodi Dodi. Your TV's in game mode and your remote control is the weapon, so zap it to GSN and then hide it somewhere so you ask them where and say "I don't know" next time they ask you to watch something else. GSN is for all age groups, sunflowers and plants, so shall we start knowing GSN?.........of course. with.....

 The Starting Line.

For the first time in 6 years....A fan favrote makes it's return. An old and ancient show is dusted off the vault and now it's ready Are you ready for the return of...........


You bet I am. The Pat & Vanna connection returns to GSN and what will they air this time? The 80's where it exploded into widespread popularity? The 90's where many changes go? No. The 2013-14 season. Yes, the 2013-14 season. 3 years ago, people. It'll be the one where Julian Batts gets dumb luck despite landing on the million dollar wedge, plus more moments from that season. In addition, the wild card and everything else you know about the game is on it. Set your calendars for October 24th for Wheel to make its triumphant return.

And you know it's fair to take a DIY project from Madi2TheMax, because after this, consequences for Friday Night Frights. We'll take you here, there & everywhere, but please don't go nowhere.

(Quick fade out)

Back on the electric slide to greatness and Carl Douglas once said "Everybody's Was Kung-Fu fighting" and the month of October is going by fast as lightning, but for Friday Night wasn't a little bit frightening. Here's what this past Friday looked like....

GSN Primetime Ratings for Friday, October 14th (All Times ET):
8:00pm Family Feud: 447,000 total viewers/115,000 18-49 viewers
8:30pm Family Feud: 446,000 total viewers/88,000 18-49 viewers; down <1% in total viewers/down 23% in 18-49 viewers from lead-in
9:00pm Hellevator (new): 177,000 total viewers/49,000 18-49 viewers; up 2% in total viewers/down 21% in 18-49 viewers from last week; down 60% in total viewers/down 44% in 18-49 viewers from lead-in
10:00pm Scare Tactics: 182,000 total viewers/69,000 18-49 viewers; down 13% in total viewers/down 13% in 18-49 viewers from last week; up 3% in total viewers/up 41% in 18-49 viewers from lead-in
10:30pm Scare Tactics: 188,000 total viewers/89,000 18-49 viewers; down 10% in total viewers/up 14% in 18-49 viewers from last week; up 3% in total viewers/up 29% in 18-49 viewers from lead-in

Hellevator had a small rise from last week, but the 18-49 Y/O took a beating like last week. Scare Tactics on the other hand had more of an audience than Hellevator and it looked kinda good on paper. So what are the consequences of their actions? Well....

Changes (for next two weeks):
*On Mondays (starting 10/17), Family Feud will air 11pm-1am; replacing Hellevator rerun and Scare Tactics
*On Friday latenight (10/14 and 10/21), The Newlywed Game will air at 3am and 3:30am; replacing a Hellevator encore

This is to eliminate the need for weaker reruns of the two shows airing so far this month, but there's another thing: Scare Tactics also went up against the 2nd presidential debate. Take a gander as to who won.

GSN primetime ratings for Sunday, October 9th (All Times ET):
8:00pm Family Feud: 405,000 total viewers/90,000 18-49 viewers
8:30pm Family Feud: 435,000 total viewers/127,000 18-49 viewers
9:00pm Scare Tactics: 148,000 total viewers/51,000 18-49 viewers
9:30pm Scare Tactics: 101,000 total viewers/42,000 18-49 viewers
10:00pm Scare Tactics: 90,000 total viewers/38,000 18-49 viewers
10:30pm Scare Tactics: 77,000 total viewers/35,000 18-49 viewers

Feud was the winner and Scare Tactics got the silver medal. You can also tell that the week of October 3rd-9th got its worst averages in over 2 years. 2 years people. Will this week and next week turn things around or will it end in disaster?

Bit of house cleaning for you guys.

*In Thursday primetime at 9pm, Family Feud will air; replacing Winsanity.
*In Thursday post-primetime at 12am, Family Feud will air; replacing Winsanity
*In Thursday latenight, The Newlywed Game will air at 3am and 3:30am; replacing Winsanity and Chain Reaction.

GSN finally tells the WInsanity crowd to get on decaf and give Donald and Kara a break after being so weak in new shows. They're more than halfway there, but will the hiatus be brief for it?

Now the 2nd intermission presented by Here comes Svengoolie giving you this one......

I know I want to start the 3rd period, but we got a bonus segment for you. It's............

So Impressed! with Madi2TheMax. This time she'll impress characters Tim Burton-directed movies. Here to do that is our master impressionist....Madi2theMax!

Thanks Madi. Now to the 3rd period.

Who is GSN to blame for on Friday Nights? It seems that Fridays are an inevitable grayeyard for many viewers when they draw low ratings over the years. But now Hellevator and Scare Tactics have mistakenly put it on them. Why? Viewers 18-49 would never want to watch that, because Netflix and Hulu are their vices on it. But why did GSN air it in the first place? Well,  they skew younger, but bad ratings figured out why older people want to see real variety in them. That led to GSN being out of the top 30 according to TV Newser. Will both show rest in peace after October? We'll see about it.

We have got to move. Time to end the haunted party hayride. Today's blog is presented by Billy Bush. If he could do it....why can't he do it?
Don't forget to email me at,, 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.
