The whatstrending.com Opening Toss-Up story.
We told you last week that Toddlers and Tiaras may be coming to GSN. Well, it seems that the controversial TLC program may make a spot this year. The nature of the reaction went to Game Show Follies in which Casey Abell wrote the past about it.
The show over the years has garnered negative reaction from fans and fans alike over 7 seasons and with it looking for a home on GSN, will it do the same?
Now comes the segment in which you planned it accordingly all month. It's the Yay & Yawn of April.
The Yay: Match Game. Time After Time got the boot....and Match Game filled the blanks it once was lost. So yay!
The Yawn: Charo. She shook her....you know what on DWTS, but the public shook her out....for good.

'Countdown' will remain on screens until at least the end of next year.
The popular game show, which sees contestants tackle tough word and number puzzles under a tight time schedule, doesn't look like it'll be leaving the small screen any time soon as Channel 4 boss Jay Hunt has called for more episodes per year.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, host Nick Hewer said: "The show is doing great. I don't know about the opposition from other shows as scheduling is a mystery to me. All I know is that C4 want 260 shows a year which is more than last year so obviously they are happy. The show works like clockwork and they want more. The show is in the Guinness Book of Records for the longest running show."
'Countdown', which was originally hosted by Richard Whiteley with Carol Vorderman as his sidekick, first hit television screens when the network began in November 1982.
Since then, its screened more than 6,500 episodes and seen Richard replaced by Nick and his new sidekick Rachel Riley, who has proven a huge hit with male fans.
Asked if he'd ever take part in the competition, Nick said: "I would be terrible on the show. I used to be quite good on the letters but I am hopeless now. I am better on the numbers."
It looks like Channel 4's decision to pump more money in 'Countdown' comes just months after it was reported that the cash money game show 'Deal or No Deal' had been axed.
Over the Years, TPIR has gives away all types of shoes, but Complex has this to show for.
Complex Networks have greenlit "Price the Hype," a game show where contestants have to price ornate sneakers for prizes, for this summer.
Complex Networks is comprised of Complex, Rated Red, First We Feast and Sole Collector channels. They combined for 2 billion video views in the first quarter via YouTube and through output deals with premium distributors including Verizon’s go90.
The world’s first sneaker game show that asks contestants to make their best guesses on the resale values of streetwear’s most hyped items in order to win shoes or lose. Hosted by Complex’s Rich “MaZe” Lopez and Yaya in this fast paced show where contestants can win big or be sent home with their credibility in shreds. Sneaker resale culture is a billion dollar business with sneakerheads and die-hard collectors thinking nothing of dropping thousands of dollars on rare and limited editions of Nike or Adidas shoes. Price the Hype taps this passion and lets contestants show off their aftermarket skills.
Here's what makes you click:
Subscription service Fullscreen has green lit a new original game series, Clickbait with SSSniperWolf, hosted by YouTuber gamer SSSniperWolf.
Produced by Znak & Co, three social media influencers will be pitted against one another in challenges, with points awarded in each round. The player with the most points after three rounds picks which of the two losers becomes the ultimate clickbait themselves in ‘The Clickbait Chair.’
Three rounds will see contestants competing in games such as grabbing hanging hot dogs covered in wasabi using only their mouths, attempting to catch an uncontrollable fizzy soda and mint eruption without the use of their hands and pushing an electrified toy car with their bare fingers.
The series will feature guest digital influencers including Sean O’Donnell, MacDoesIT and Jordan Doww. It premieres May 11.
Clickbait with SSSniperWolf is produced by Znak&Co for Fullscreen — a division of Fullscreen Media.
Executive producers are Natalka Znak and Michael Dietz.
Look in my eyes....what do you see......
Former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar Phil Brooks — operating under the handle of “CM Punk” — is now a bona fide Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) “pro” after compiling a healthy 0-1 record.
That’s according to MTV, for the purposes of its new reality game show.
Sure, Punk was asked to go fight somewhere else after Mickey Gall splattered him across the cage at UFC 203 last fall in Cleveland, Ohio, but his credentials were good enough to land him a spot alongside other pros in the network’s six-week gameshow titled The Challenge: Champs vs. Pros.
MTV.com explains how it works:
Each episode will focus on a different strength (agility, ingenuity, brawn, brains, endurance and guts). Every week, the winning team’s captain will choose one member of their team to go into the elimination round, and the rest of the team will vote in their opponent. The losing team’s captain is automatically sent into elimination, and their team will also nominate their opponent. The final male and female competitors of the season will endure the ultimate test, showcasing each strength in one heart-pounding race for the chance to win $50,000 for their favorite charity.
Punk will be competing for his local animal shelter.
The competition brings together 10 “champions” from a collection of its previous Challenge seasons to see if they have what it takes to beat hired guns. Joining Punk will be NFL linebacker Shawne Merriman, Olympian Lolo Jones, and former WNBA player Candice Wiggins, among others.
Hosted by NFL star Victor Cruz, The Challenge: Champs vs. Pros debuts May 16 on MTV.
Remember Power of 10 with Drew Carey? Well, Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who has been hosting Bigg Boss on Colors for several years now, will be back to hosting game show 10 Ka Dum aka Dus Ka Dum soon! If our sources are to be believed, the Tiger Zinda Hai actor is all set to woo television audiences again with his charm and presence.
The game show 10 Ka Dum made Salman Khan very popular as a TV show host and he beat rival Shah Rukh Khan at it. 10 Ka Dum had its first season in India in 2008.
The show is a version of the international reality game show Power of 10. In the show, the contestants include celebrities as well as commoners and they have to take part in a fun quiz. Their answers are compared to mass surveys conducted in India and then adjudged right or wrong.
Salman Khan is now a very popular host and his fans eagerly wait for him to host Bigg Boss. With 10 Ka Dum now back, as per a report on TimesofIndia.com, Salman Khan might return to hosting the new season. A source close to Sony told TOI, “Salman has already made up his mind and in all likelihood is expected to host the third season of the show. A final meeting will take place between the channel and the star in couple of days. The show is expected to go on air in July.”
This story will make you get put in a box.......Letterbox that is.
Former The Great British Baking Show host Mel Giedroyc is set to deliver a new BBC game show, Letterbox.
The TV host often appears alongside comic partner Sue Perkins, but will be going it alone as the host of the forthcoming daytime series.
Created by David Young, who produces hit challenge shows The Weakest Link and Eggheads, it will see pairs of contestants go head-to-head to crack a series of passwords that could win them £2,000 (about $2500).
Mel said: “I played a version of this game and was a) extremely competitive at it, b) annoyingly bad at it, c) strangely addicted to it, d) needed to do more of it, e) asked the big cheeses if I could present it, f) was delighted when they said yes, g) can’t wait to start recording the shows and meeting the contestants, h) hoping to get seriously skilled at playing it so that i) I’ll be able to SMASH IT if the board game comes out.
“Now how many letters have I used up? (see what I did there).”
Letterbox is being touted as a simple yet addictive word game that is designed for audiences to be able to play along at home.
David said: “It’s a word game designed to appeal to a family audience because it doesn’t contain any general knowledge questions.
“On Letterbox you don’t need to be an Egghead to walk away a winner.”
The series has been commissioned for 15 30-minute episodes for BBC Two.
