Window Peeking

(Think Christmas is way too early? Then it's never too late to shop thanks to Hobby Lobby. Then you can start decorating after Thanksgiving. Okay? OKAY?! 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: It's GSN The Know, and we came to party. Ain't no flipping to somewhere else, let's get it started with.....

 The Starting Line.

Window Warriors is this month and we want to give you a first look in this edition of.....

Under the Sink.

GSN's window-design competition is set up very similar to Skin Wars. Besides the premise/format of the two shows very alike, the on-air personalities of Window Warriors align with Skin Wars. On Window Warriors, you have one out of the three judges who is known to the general public, which is Carson Kressley. That same person on Skin Wars is RuPaul. Your other two judges of both Window Warriors (Tai Beauchamp and Douglas Little) and the other two judges on Skin Wars (Robin Slonina, Craig Tracy) are barely recognizable outside of their respective shows, but well known and praised within their respective genres. Both Skin Wars and Window Warriors are produced by Michael Levitt.

Each week, there are new clients: Macy's, Lush Fresh Homemade Cosmetics, Sprinkles Cupcakes, Hot Topic, Anthropologie, and so forth. The grand prize for the winner of Window Warriors is $100,000, a feature in "design:retail" magazine, a contract with GGP Retail Properties and a holiday display with Macy's in New York City.

Roya Sullivan, the National Window Director for Macy's is a guest judge on the first episode of Window Warriors.

Window Warriors artists make their art in the "Showroom." Artists are assigned a dress for the focus of their window design.

Unlike Skin Wars, where contestants complete challenges in the matter of hours, the Window Warriors contestant project is filmed over three days (similar to Steampunk'd).

The period between the judging and the elimination consists of conversation between the three judges, guest judge and Garcelle. 

The elimination format: Out of 8 contestants, four are saved immediately. Of the remaining four there are the top two and bottom two. From the top two, there is a "winner" for best window. One contestant is eliminated.
And that's Window Warriors.

Hang on folks, this BYOGSNP, that of course is Bring Your Own Game Show Network Party continues with some news on a new show. So why don't you come back? In the meantime, play that music, DJ!

(song fades out)

(Quick fade out)
Thanks for bringing your own brain to this party as we return with news on a new show.
With Divided coming soon, it's no wonder why this UK show which didn't last long came into the GSN fold. And Flasher has a photo of what it'll look like set-wise.
Would you look at this? The show not only spawned many versions worldwide, but got a lesson as to how you split the money. But I heard a rumor......
......That Mike Richards would be the host. Last time he hosted was Pyramid of 2012 and boy it was worse. Michael Strahan showed us how it's done this year for ABC and Mike would be better off producing Price and Deal than hosting. Let's see why it'll happen.
Your running shoes will be laced up and not be tripped as if you laced each other for a holiday marathon. Plan accordingly to this:

Thanksgiving Day (November 24th): Idiotest

Friday, November 25th: Family Feud (Harvey)

Weekends in December: Winsanity
And oh yeah, bring your bottles of water too.
Now comes the segment in which we can learn a lot of opinions and not our own. It's a segment we eventually call....

Say what you want to say.
Joey Ridenhour will kick it off with....
"You used to be my FAVORITE network, until you took off Match Game starring Gene Rayburn! I also want you to bring back Hollywood Squares."

Don't worry though, Match Game is still there. Paul Allen....not the guy from Microsoft says.....

"Can you start airing The New Family Feud with Ray Combs and more Dawson Feud from the 1994-95 season??? More 1990s programming please???"

Wished GSN would do that. They've done it before. How about Laura Renee?

"I will no longer be watching your network until you stop airing commercials for "VIPoo" by Airwick/Reckitt Benckiser. The commercials are crass and repulsive. "Punish the porcelain"? You've got to be freaking kidding me. Some of these commercials were aired during times when children could see them. Disgusting."

Can't GSN get rid of that ad once and for all? I mean, come on, It's just a product, but please get it out. Alright, on to Danny EyHeralde.

"THANK YOU GSN for putting "Wheel" on the schedule. it seemed like prior to this, all I was seeing on GSN was Steve Harvey "Feud" practically all day, and while it's a good show, it can get old if that's all you had. Too bad you and Buzzr can't both have the Mark Goodson games as I don't even get Buzzr on my TV."

Yes, Wheel is back! Danielle Magouryk says....

"Thank You GSN for bringing back Wheel Of Fortune to your network.It's been my favorite game show since I was 2 years old."

Wheel Praise! What about Matthew Lausmann?

"Bring Back Whammy!"

Yes, but at an early afternoon time. And finally, Robin Groesbeck!

"GSN finally got smart & is showing Wheel of Fortune replays! Thank you for that. I'd love to see some of the really "classic" episodes. And how about "Who Wants to be a Millionaire"? Those episodes definitely would be worth watching. Shows that have games to exercise the brain, i.e., THE CHASE, Idiottest. Doubt you'll have anyone wanting to see reruns of lousy shows like Scare Tactics & Hellevator 30 yrs from now. And when did body painting & window dressing become an enterta...ining game show?..NO THANK YOU! It must be a generational-thing. And, was beginning to think GSN should be called the "Family Feud Channel" for all the episodes that are shown. Let's face it, the only reason to watch F.F. is for Steve Harvey; GSN can quit showing all the episodes with John Hurley & that guy that used to be on show with Tim Allen. Also enjoy the old shows like Match Game & Block Busters. Please, give us game shows that require some thought!"

That's what we want to see.

(Song stops)

Now the 2nd intermission presented by It's finally here, boys & girls, Nan-November is in full gear and all charged up like a portable charger. Our resident Soda Girl Christa Nannos wants to kick it off in a big way.....and what better way than with a cover from a guy who hails from my hometown. So here she is doing "Can't Stop The Feeling" from the upcoming animated movie, "Trolls." Take it, CN!

And with that, the express can't stop as we head into period 3.

Not only did Wheel return to GSN, Pat Sajak turned 70 this year. And with a moment to live by, he proves that theory of horses true.

And with that, we must walk out. Today's blog is presented by the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. Come get your piece of the rock by checking in on Facebook and knowing when to expect to stop the pipeline from the cops. It's a whole different view.

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.
