Livewire! 2/10

Madison Brunoehler: From Game Show Live!, this is.....................

Livewire! Yesterday's headlines today. Brought to you by....

13-year old girls. Trust us, nothing says "Cash me outside, how bow day?" And punching somebody on a flight than a teen who used to be on a talk show. 

And now from our Game Show Live! Newsroom, here comes Pierre Kelly!

Me: Thank you Madi2theMax, welcome to Livewire! It's close to Valentine's Day and for the fancy dinner our newsroom has set up, we've hired actress Meghan Ashley to provide classical harp for us while our dinner is caterered by Seasons 52 Steakhouse. But we're here to spread the love of game shows, so let's go on a romantic journey to Game show news.....with sass.

The Truth about Animal instincts

Anthony Anderson wants to talk to the animals. Sorta. Animal Planet hired him to do a new talk show entitled "Animal Nation" in which the guests....have animals. Imagine what Jack Hanna will bring to this new talk show.

A very mad beast!

File this under breaking andf entering. Mark Labett aka The Beast once snuck in BBC rival quiz Pointless. He has even admitted that host Bradley Walsh has snuck inside the BBC show, co-hosted by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman, to snoop on their rivals, according to Woman’s Own.
Mark, 51, added: “If the Pointless set falls apart, the screws are not in my pocket!” No word yet on when Brooke Burns will have him counseling.

Ben and Lauren have broken up despite "fake news" rumors. But why?

Higgins bashed "fake news" and said he's "extremely lucky" to share his life with Bushnell in the caption of a sweet Instagram photo he posted of the couple just last week. Life & Style reported, however, the reality TV stars have indeed broken off their engagement and split despite the united front. 

"Ben and Lauren's relationship has been crumbling since before the holiday season, and now they have officially called it quits," a source told Life & Style. "It's only a matter of time before they announce it." 

So what went wrong? After all, Higgins, 28, and Bushnell, 27, appeared very happy together on their Freeform spinoff Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?

"They couldn't agree on many life decisions," the source explained. "Ben was constantly trying to make Lauren love life in Colorado, and Lauren couldn't stand it. She missed LA and wanted to move back, but knew that wasn't an option." 

Bushnell is a former flight attendant who began blogging once she moved in with Higgins in Denver, where the former Bachelor holds down a steady day job in software sales. 

"They had been putting on a front for months, pretending to be happy for the [Happily Ever After?] show, and Lauren got sick of it," the insider said. "She got sick of sitting at home being an 'almost housewife' to Ben." 

Higgins and Bushnell were set to wed in a televised special for ABC, but once the bride-to-be got the ball rolling on wedding plans, an overwhelmed Higgins got cold feet and eventually called the wedding off much to Bushnell's dismay. Higgins wanted to get to know Bushnell better before they took the big leap of getting married. 

"Lauren wishes she could have found her happily ever after," the insider told Life & Style, "but she's thankful she didn't air a fake wedding to the whole world." 

Bushnell, however, captioned an engagement photo of herself with Higgins two days ago, "We ain't perfect but we tryin'." 
Well, at least they both tried.

Mike Adamle, the same guy who blessed us all with American Gladiators in the 1990s, is having a dementia diagnosis. He may also have possible CTE. Pray for him, won't you?

And now....

Something you Already know.

The weddings of Trista Rehn (the 1st Bachelorette), Jason Mesnick (13th Bachelor), Ashley Hebert (the 7th Bachelorette), and Sean Lowe (the 17th Bachelor) were broadcast as television specials. Rehn's vow-renewal ceremony upon her 10-year anniversary was also broadcast.

And that's....

Something you Already know.

And we segue into...

So Impressed! with Madi2TheMax. Since Valentine's day is days away, we thought Madi would do Disney characters doing romantic movie quotes. Please show your love if you can, for....our very own Match Game mistress of impressionism, ....Madi2theMax!

(canned applause button)

  (canned applause button)

Thanks Madi. I heart you very much.

That's all for now, but remember one thing:  don't ever sneak in to a rival or sister quiz show without a permission slip. Because the police will escort you out of here. And that's not fun. So until next time and all the on playas.

An Old School type of match

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 Lady Elaine Fairchild in the neighborhood of Game Shows and we're reached the destination on the trolley to 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. If you got more than $50 in your pocket, you'll get a delicious fruit bouquet. Perfect for your boss, your sweetheart or your In-laws. Trust me, you'll get it at an Edible Arrangements store or at its website. Time to pull the strings as we begin with....

   The Opening Toss-Up story.

Old School Game shows. They have stood the test of time in reruns, but one event on the east coast is doing its thing. Old School Game show. Sure, it may be a game show, but it's a variety show, too. OSGS is a live interactive theatre experience done with all the pageantry and analog style of a 1970's television game show. The show combines elements of pub trivia, variety specials, video shorts, dance numbers,  and comedy sketches to produce a completely unique trivia experience that tests players pop culture acumen.

So.....How do you play?

When you arrive at the show the lovely usher, who takes your ticket, will ask you if you are interested in playing the game (you also have the option of just watching the show, you kinky bastard.) If you would like to play you will receive a name tag and your name will be placed in our official OSGS fishbowl.

 At the beginning of the show 8 contestants will be called up to the stage (Price is Right Style) and divided into two teams to compete in the first round. The winning team of each round will win fun, fabulous prizes and the losing team will be replaced with new contestants.

This continues over several rounds (each one a completely new original category) until the night’s greatest contestants square off against one another, Highlander style, until there is one final Old School Game Show Champion!

It's like Sqrambled Scuares: After Dark ......or not.

There is more....

What would a variety show be without guests?  The Old School Game Show stage has been set on fire by the likes of Boston Music Award Winner Ruby Rose Fox, Boston Rock n’ Roll winners Eddie Japan, horror-rock stalwarts The Evil Streaks, and with guest appearances by members of Boston’s own Sidewalk Driver, Kingsley Flood, Parks and many others.

And who's running the show?

On top of our fabulous special guests Old School Game Show is also a scripted sketch comedy bonanza with recurring characters, wild plot twists, and gratuitous spectacle. Our fabulous character storylines are written by a team of sketch writers made up of some of the best comedy writers in Boston. These kooky characters have had our audiences coming back for more.

Get The Know The Cast here!

And like The Gong Show or LMAD, we got a band.   Fronted by our band leader Chuck Ferriera and stacked with professional musicians like Paul Ahlstrand, Eric Ortiz, Eric Brosius, Jason Raffi, Jonathan Donaldson, and more! Our swinging Old School Game Show band keeps the music flowing and hips bumping with polished tunes that are sure to get the OSGS crew singing and dancing!
So if you're ever in Titletown, please come to the wildest and hippest time warp in the New England area. The site is....

And there's a Facebook page too:

Otherwise, head on south if you're sick of the cold weather to Myrtle Beach, SC for Sqrambled Scuares every Thursday at Barefoot Landing. It doesn't have a band or cast of characters like Chuck Barris did on the Gong Show, but it's pure clean insane fun.

This Friday on Livewire!, The Beast goes all-out. And I mean, all-out.  all on Livewire!  Catch it here!

(song stops)

And we've reached intermission. Coming up, Match Game takes us all to lunch. Seriously. That's on the way, but first...

(song fades out)

If you're a wrestling fan like a I am, and want to show it at your next event, Have I got a thing for you.

(song fades out)

Welcome back to Game Show Live! Later on in the show,  we look back at the nip slip of Chrissy Teigen using our knew Game Show Live! NYSI telestrator.

(song stops)

Before we get to that, we got one from the Game Show Live! mailroom. And the real  Skipper Kress chimed in. It reads this:

hello kelly,
read your article.  not bad, but at least, if you are going to have some fun going after an almost 15 year old crappy reality show, please make sure to know that i was never charged with serving a minor.  i'm still in the restaurant business, as you stated in your article, and this false information could possibly affect me and my family in the future.  good luck with your articles, and if you want to know anything else about the show, or how bad it was, feel free to ask.  cheers.
Well, Skipper. We apologize for a mistake we made last week. Even though you're still making tips at a restaurant, you were never charged for serving a minor. The restaurant business is all ages, but it's a hard job. Game Show Live! apologizes in advance for any errors made and will be regretful in the foreseeable future. Stephanie Panisello, where can they send their grievances and praises?
Stephanie Panisello: Well Pierre, if you want to ask Pierre anything and everything, please send it to the email address below or write it via snail mail to:
1711 ALLY MAQUE DRIVE, Ste. 101
Be sure to include a self addressed Stamped envelope when you write. Now back to the guy with more Stranger Things than Barb, Pierre Kelly!
Me: Thanks Stephanie. Save Eggo waffles for me, won't you? Alright on with the show.
I'm not <BLANK>ing. GSN has dropped its noon hour (Central time!) of John O'Hurley's Family Feud in favor of another hour of the best game show of all time, Match Game.
That means, you get an extra hour of stars and blanks and Gene. All to go with your lunch date. But, Buzzr is being added to the mix as well. Here's the way it goes....

 2:00AM-4:00AM Buzzr
8:00AM-9:00AM GSN
10:00AM-12:00PM Buzzr
1:00PM-2:00PM GSN
4:00PM-6:00PM Buzzr
It's a <BLANK>-ing flip flop of sorts, but you'll spend all day switching the channel for a star-studded, big money marathon.

Across the pond comes the return of a program that here in the USA, all we got was Roger lodge and a real-life date with graphics.
'Blind Date' is set to return to television screens before the end of this year.
The classic game show was fronted by the late Cilla Black for almost two decades from 1985 until 2003 but is set to return to be given a reboot over the coming months.

Speaking to The Sun Online, a source said: "'Blind Date' is the original dating show and it's huge news to bring it back.

"It's a classic format that will be rebooted to make it young, sexy and modern. Expect sparks to fly. In an age of Tinder, you have got to earn the right to love on this show."

It's not known who will replace Cilla, who tragically passed away in 2015, as the host just yet.

Bosses are keen to keep some of the "traditional" elements of the previous run but have decided to give it an updated twist to appeal to a "new generation of viewers".

It's expected to run on Friday nights - rather than its traditional Saturday night slot - and will consist of six to eight episodes per series for the first few installments.

The program sees three singletons grilled by a member of the opposite sex in order to find the perfect match without being able to see them. The new couple then pick an envelope with their holiday destination - abroad in the UK - inside.

Channel 5 have bought the rights to the dating show but will have some stiff competition from ITV as it also has 'Take Me Out' and 'Meet The Parents'.
'Blind Date' proved a hit with viewers for years but the plug was pulled in 2003 when Cilla announced she was quitting during a live episode following a drop in ratings.
You don't need the most dramatic rose ceremony to know that Chris Harrison will be welcoming a string of fan-favorite bachelors and bachelorettes from seasons past to compete for the grand prize on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire next week.

Beginning on Monday, February 6, former stars of The Bachelor franchise will test their knowledge and luck by answering questions for Millionaire host Chris Harrison in the hope of winning up to $1 million for charity, E! News reported.

The event will run all week long. Participants will include Chris Soules, Tenley Molzahn, Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth, Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum, and DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano.

Harrison told E! News that the mini reunion provides him a chance to "not really talk about the Bachelor as much as talk about their life, kind of catch up on what they're doing, and show a different side of them."

"I get to know these people really well, and so it's fun for me to get to show everybody else that side," he continued, "and I think you get to see a little bit more of that on Millionaire obviously when they're not searching for love."

Harrison said the couples who are still together will play together on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.

"You would think the couples would have a massive advantage playing together, but it's actually a little more difficult," Harrison said, before revealing which couple did very well in the game.
But.....there's more. Some of the smartest kids in the country will play "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" opposite host Chris Harrison during the second installment this season of Whiz Kids Week, airing MONDAY, FEBRUARY 13-FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2017.

Throughout the week, five amazing and talented young minds ages 12-14 will play for the chance to win $1 million: Naman Shah of Peachtree Corners, Georgia; Annie Ostojic of Munster, Indiana; Josh Darrow of Virginia Beach, Virginia; Uma Upamaka of Saint Charles, Missouri; and Charles Horowitz of Weston, Florida.
Let's fill in this Family Feud survey from 1976. Give me another name for the devil.

The #3 answer was....
The #2 Answer was....
Luficer.  Do you know the #1 Answer? It'll all be revealed after this Google Play Music Interlude from.....Lindsey Stirling. Time for more of her on her appreciation month with this.

 So what was the top answer? Survey Said.....

Talk about a devilishly good survey.

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: Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch. VH1 has had a string of dating programs.
Flavor of Love with Flava Flav.
Rock of Love with Brett Michaels.
And now....Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch. Best known for being a controversial NFL player, Chad Johnson wanted a dating show. He got one. The show places him with 85 women to choose from to find love. In the first episode of the show, he eliminated 69 girls. Yes, 69. Don't get it twisted. Fellow NFL Wide Receivers, and Ochocinco's close friends, Bernard "B-Twice" Berrian and Terrell Owens appeared on some episodes offering tips and helping Ochocinco select the girls.
And like any dating show, they go on dates, but it's an NCAA basketball-style tournament to determine the winner. Only one was withdrawn and that was Lisa. The reason: She left the show early because of a family emergency. She has to attend to her grandfather, who is terminally ill with cancer. She is automatically eliminated from the show. The winner was.....Rubi Pazmino. The show, like the XFL and any game show that premiered in 1990 ran for.....just 1 season. If there is a dating show with a WWE on! But you can tell Ochocinco was nothing but a .....

Relationship Disaster.

That's it for this week. Today's consolation prize is  a $25 gift certificate to Sonic The Hedgehog CafĂ©.
