The White out Blues

Today's blog is dedicated to the memory of Jim Williams, a dear friend of Game Show Garbage. May he rest in peace.

Stephanie Panisello: From Coast to Coast, Shore to Shore, Border to Border and beyond the far reaches of our galaxy's solar system, it's time to go all the way live on....

Now here is America's favorite contestant, Pierre Kelly!!!!!

Me: Thank you Stephanie Panisello, my uber and lyft driver and we got a lift to our destination: Game show Live! As live as it gets, as live as it happens and as live whenever you feel like it.

Today's program is presented this month by Edible Arrangements. What I have is a Berry Chocolate Bouquet dipped Pineapple and Banana. Voted Best arrangement of 2017, this selection has 5 sizes starting at $87 and you can get that on the website or at a store near you. The fare is paid and we're here. Let's start with:

     The Opening Toss-Up story.

Turning 60....and still turning letters, Vanna White made Wheel of Fortune what it was since she came in 1982. She's a knitter, wears fancy dresses and played a greek goddess.....once. One source is Closer magazine says "Age is only a number, It’s really about how you feel.” And it is true.

The TV icon also told the publication that she’s looking to keep the celebration as low-key as possible.
“I’m not one who likes to celebrate my birthday. I never was,” she said. “I remember for my 40th I went to bed early and just watched movies with my kids! So I may go away for the weekend to a spa or resort to just chill. I’m doing nothing; is that terrible?”
One thing that is keeping White busy lately is empty nest syndrome. Her youngest daughter, Gigi Santo Pietro, moved away to attend college in 2015, leaving White unable to cope with her new life.
“I’d go to her room and into her closet to smell her clothes, lie on her bed and cry. I took it hard,” admitted White.

Even though White tried to pose nude for Playboy, but turned it down, she is also involved with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “I’ve gotten more involved with charities, and I like helping other people.” So happy 60th, Vanna. Keep turning them letters.

This Friday on Livewire!,  one DWTS couple sitting in a tree, D-A-N-C-I-N-G.....but there's more to it.  all on Livewire!  Catch it here!

They say it's a thin line between lobe & hate. But in the world of game shows, it's a thin line between.........Yay & Yawn.

The Yay: Rachel Lindsay. She made Bachelorette history and will make it soon.

The Yawn: Nick Cannon leaving AGT. Who will fill Nick's place now that he's gone?

Red light means we must stop for a break. After this, Buzzr goes in a scheduling snafu, but how? That's on the way, but first...

(song fades out)

It's time for a new segment called.......Tenspot.

From  the archives of Buzzr, we give you 10 moments in game show history. Today, the top 10 moments of Tom Poston on Super Password.

Welcome back to Game Show Live! We have a 1990's fashion show all set up in our studio today. Don't miss that, but first....

Buzzr seems to have an interesting scheduling change. Here's why. This week had these changes:

 Tuesday Feb 28
8:00 PM Let's Make a Deal
8:30 PM Let's Make a Deal
9:00 PM Tattletales
9:30 PM Tattletales
10:00 PM Press Your Luck
10:30 PM Press Your Luck

Wednesday Mar 1

PYL leaves the 10 eastern slot and Super Password comes in to replace it. What is going on here? Well, it's because they're adding extra SP shows. MG and Feud get slimmed down a lot. No word on when the changes will take place. And there's this if you want to see it.

Million dollars's on MTV.

MTV’s new reality gameshow series Stranded With a Million Dollars (premiering tonight at 10p) sees 10 contestants who are total strangers left on an island with, yup, you guessed it $1million.
Those cast members that manage to survive for 40 days get to keep the cash, but there’s a twist. During their stay they have to buy supplies to keep alive and give themselves shelter.

And these items are seriously expensive, like $10,000 for a machete, $30,000 for a tent, and $1,000 for a bottle of water. So during their time on the island they have to decide between them how best to spend — or save — their cash, so they have as much left over as possible for whoever manages to survive.

What makes it even more difficult is that every purchase needs be made by vote, with a majority needed to go through with it.
There are also ‘Temptations’, where individuals get the chance to use the group’s cash to buy personal things. This is obviously a massive recipe for conflict.

Who knew Alex Trebek had swagga?  This past week on Jeopardy!, a category was called "Let's Rap, Kids!" and this moment was filed under ROFLMAO. Have a look.

Ya heard me?

Remember Heroes of Cosplay? Well, Syfy is getting back into the cosplay game. The world's most innovative cosplayers go head to head each week in Syfy's new transformation competition series COSPLAY MELEE - an epic showdown of creativity, eye popping costumes and one of a kind characters. Premiering on Tuesday, March 21 at 10/9c, the hour-long battle is hosted by actress and self-described "super fan girl" Yvette Nicole Brown ("The New Edition Story," "Community") and executive produced by Jay Peterson and Todd Lubin of Matador Content ("Lip Sync Battle").
Each week, four world class cosplayers compete to create not only intricate full-body costumes - but fully-formed characters that they must bring to life through their own realistic performance. Guiding and critiquing them are a panel of judges including world class cosplayer LeeAnna Vamp, and A-list costume creator, Christian Beckman ("The Hunger Games," "TRON: Legacy"). At the end of every episode, the winner will walk away with $10,000 ... and the right to claim cosplay supremacy.

"Cosplay is passion, artistry, engineering and theater all rolled into one," said Heather Olander, Senior Vice President, Alternative Development and Production at USA/Syfy. "At the intersection of the maker world and fandom, the incredible artists of COSPLAY MELEE will blow your minds with their transformational creations."

"As a huge fan of the creativity cosplayers bring to their craft, nothing makes me happier than having a front row seat for the amazing creations set to hit the COSPLAY MELEE runway," said host Brown. "These talented artists are going to shine!"
Best known for her roles on NBC's "Community" and having recently starred in "The New Edition Story," Brown began her television career on "Girlfriends" and currently stars as Dani on the reboot of "The Odd Couple." Previous film credits include "Little Black Book," "Tropic Thunder," "Meet Dave," "Dreamgirls" and more. Brown can also be seen peeking through prosthetic makeup as one of the Three Fates in the Percy Jackson sequel "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters" and has lent her voice for several characters on the big and small screens, including roles on "Family Guy," "Pound Puppies" and, most recently, "Yellowbird."

KICKING & SCREAMING is a new competition series that teams 10 expert survivalists with pampered partners to face the toughest challenges of their lives.

From executive producer Matt Kunitz ("Wipeout," "Fear Factor"), in association with Lionsgate Television, and hosted by Hannah Simone (NEW GIRL), the series drops these unlikely duos into a tropical jungle in Fiji, where they must overcome dangerous animals, raging rivers, hunger and extreme weather.

While these no-nonsense survivalists are accustomed to fending for themselves, there's one thing for which none of their previous expeditions has prepared them: their teammates, who think "glamping" is roughing it. Among them are a former beauty pageant winner, a model and a professional gamer. To win the competition, and a cash prize of $500,000, THE EXPERTS will have to drag their partners, KICKING & SCREAMING, to the finish line.

Produced by Pulse Creative's Matt Kunitz, in association with Lionsgate, KICKING & SCREAMING is created by Kunitz, David Shumsky and Mark Harris, and executive-produced by Kunitz and Anthony Dominici. Rebecca Shumsky Quinn developed the project and is a co-executive producer, along with Shumsky and Harris.

They say good love is hard to find.....but.....

most dates end in a disaster. Introducing.....

Relationship Disasters. A month of disastrous TV shows involving dating.
Today's relationship disaster: Mr. Personality. Let's all pretend that Alexa Bliss wants to go on a dream date with a lucha libre wrestler. Mr. personality did just that. Hayley Arp tries to find true love from 20 bachelors. But here's where the line gets drawn from here on out. all 20 bachelors.....are wearing masks. That's right. Each man is disguised throughout the dating process, keeping his looks hidden behind a rather scary-looking mask. While she does not see the appearances of the men she is dating, viewers do. As the series progresses, the woman ultimately narrows her choice to one man. Good thing the loser didn't get slammed by AJ Styles. To make matters worse, it only ran 1 season and lasted only 5 episodes. And to make even matters worse: Monica Lewinsky. Yes, the girl who was involved in Clinton's presidency as host. Mr. Personality may be a wrestler, but on TV, he's a ....

  1. There may be practically a full week March Madness of action before the NCAA tournament

    it's simple enough to project the four Zero.

    The four top seeds should be March Madness Live Stream

    Villanova (28-3, 15-3 Big East) has put together a sensational season after beating New you are

    Villanova is the Little. 1 seed in the Big East tournament 2017 March Madness , and while that league has regularly

    produced upsets in the conference tournament, it would be somewhat of a shocker if the Wildcats
