Livewire! 9/8

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

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

The "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service" sign. If you're Dashley Driveby or Bert Kreischer, pay attention to the sign or else go somewhere else where they don't have it like......the swimming pool or the beach.

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

Me: Thank you Madi2theMax, welcome to Livewire! Ingres agents, it's time to move. Move as if you were a dancer, so let's get out in the field to research stories and facts to get it popping. Get out there and do the news.............with sass.

ESPN: The final Answer

Millions of television viewers watch Chris Harrison host ABC's popular series The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, BACHELOR IN PARADISE and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire but it's not well-known that Harrison started his broadcasting career covering sports. Harrison's career will come full circle on Thursday, Sept. 7, when he returns to his sports roots and fulfills a wish he's had for many years by joining ESPN's SportsCenter:AM as a special guest anchor. Regular anchors Sage Steele, Jay Harris and Randy Scott will welcome Harrison to the set for multiple segments during the 7-10 a.m. ET program.

Harrison and Steele, who will work together on ABC's telecast of the 2018 MISS AMERICACompetition on Sept. 10, are friends and have talked about Harrison's love of sports for the past two years. Harrison revealed his interest in visiting ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Conn., to Steele as well as his desire to appear on SPORTSCENTER and Steele set the wheels in motion. 

Oh, and if Tom Phillips and Michael Cole want in.......

A seat for congress you won't throw

Daytime TV host and former Cincinnati mayor Jerry Springer says he'll decide soon whether to leave television and return to Ohio politics.

Springer, 73, attended a Cleveland union rally on Labor Day, fueling speculation that he's testing the waters to become a Democratic candidate for Ohio governor in 2018.  He's also been doing focus groups and appearing at Democratic fundraisers, reported Jo Ingles of Ohio Public Radio. 
The 27th season of the nationally syndicated daytime "Jerry Springer Show," starts September 11.  It was No. 1 on TV Guide’s list of the "Worst Shows In The History Of Television” in 2002. Springer has said many times that he would not run for office while the daytime tabloid TV show was on the air.
"I've got to make a decision soon," Springer said Tuesday after recording his weekly Jerry Springer podcast at the Folk School Coffee Parlor in Ludlow, Ky. 
In the past month, the pressure has intensified for him to return to Ohio politics, he says. Springer indicated that he was being encouraged to run for a variety of offices, not just the governor's spot on the ticket in 2018. (In June, Howard Wilkinson said Springer was being urged to challenge U.S. Rep. Brad Wenstrup.)
No Word yet on when Steve Wilkos will run for Illinois senate.
The Aces of Comedy series welcomes Emmy nominated comedian Howie Mandel to the Terry Fator Theater, along with special guest Puddles Pity Party, November 24 - 25 at 10 p.m. inside The Mirage Hotel & Casino. Mandel has starred in countless comedy specials, both on cable and network television. Puddles Pity Party, known as the "sad clown with the golden voice" who recently appeared on "America's Got Talent," will bring his brilliant sense of the absurd, mixing humor with awkward, tender moments.
Tickets starting at $39.99, plus service charges, are now on sale. Tickets can be purchased at the Terry Fator Box Office, online at, or by calling (800) 963-9634or (702) 792-7777. Children over the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult (18 years of age or older). Children under 16 are not permitted.
Mandel has remained a constant force in show business for more than 30 years. He is executive producer of many shows through his Production Company Alevy Productions, which has produced the series "Take It All" and "Howie Do It" for NBC, "Deal With It" for TBS and "Mobbed" for FOX, among others. He is currently serving his eighth season as a judge on NBC's hit summer talent competition series "America's Got Talent," now in its 12th season. Mandel received an Emmy nomination for "Outstanding Host For a Reality or Reality-Competition Program" for "Deal or No Deal" and a Daytime Emmy nomination for "Outstanding Game Show Host" for the syndicated version of the show. Mandel's versatile career has encompassed virtually all aspects of the entertainment spectrum including television, film and stage which has led him to become a mainstay of the American comedy scene.

Last week, Walter Becker of the iconic rock duo Steely Dan passed away. So in honor of him, we decided out of respect to do a 30-second song break with Lilbumblebear which starts whenever I get the lunch in the microwave.....In fact I'll get it....

Back to the news.

They say it's Your birthday: Bachelor stye

Jojo Fletcher wished Jordan Rodgers a happy birthday.....but why?

The former "The Bachelorette" star, who got engaged to Rodgers on Season 12 of the ABC reality dating series in 2015, celebrated her husband-to-be's birthday by showering him with praise in an Instagram post.
"Happy Birthday to this gem of a human-- there are so many reasons why you deserve to be celebrated, not only today, but everyday!" Fletcher wrote.
She went on to list a number of things that Rodgers does that she's thankful for, before ending the post to keep it from getting too "mushy."


After 5 months.......

Nick & Vanessa of "The Bachelor" fame......are off to Splitsville.

"It's with a great amount of heartbreak for the both us as we have decided to end our engagement," Nick and Vanessa told E! News in a statement. 

"We gave this relationship our all and we are saddened that we did not get the fairytale ending we hoped for. We will continue to be there for each other no matter what. This hasn't been an easy decision, however, as we part ways, we do so with lots of love and admiration for each other." 

Although Nick and Vanessa were apparently spending a lot of time together in Los Angeles in recent months, the couple was plagued by rumors they were headed for a split. 


Same old #@$@$!

Sasha Farber and Jenna Johnson return to their usual jobs: being in the DWTS dance troupe.

Sasha and Jenna will instead be members of the Dancing with the Stars Troupe next season, according to People

The show's Troupe dancers typically perform during commercial breaks and big group performances, as well as serve as alternates in case a professional partner gets injured during the season. 

Sasha and Jenna will reportedly be joining Brandon Armstrong, Artur Adamski, Britt Stewart and Hayley Erbert in the Dancing with the Stars Troupe. 

Sasha and Jenna, however, may be disappointed in their new positions considering they have starred on the show as pro partners before. 

Jenna, a current All-Star on So You Think You Can Dance, competed as a pro partner for former Disney star Jake T. Austin on Season 23 in 2016. The pair, however, was the first couple eliminated from the season.  

As for Sasha, he is a four-time professional partner who has most recently danced with Little Women: LA star Terra Jole on Season 23 -- when he placed fifth overall -- and Olympic gymnast Simone Biles on Season 24 this past Spring, when he finished in fourth place. 

And now because no one asked................

You can't make this....


Alexa Bliss and Dana Brooke should be ashamed of this.
CLEVELAND -- Fans of Cash Explosion experienced a whole new edition of the Ohio lottery’s TV game show Saturday night.
And many of them aren’t happy with the overhaul…
Viewers filled Cash Explosion’s Facebook page with commentary surrounding their disappointment with how “boring” the new show is.
One fan even started a petition to bring the original Cash Explosion back.
“After watching the first episode of the new Cash Explosion, I found out that the new format was horrible,” the movement declares. “It eliminates the interaction and the excitement with the players. The set was dark and the theme music was creepy. … So, in writing this petition, I say we need to bring back the format we all know and loved very much.”
Only 15 people signed it as of noon Monday.
The previous incarnation of Cash Explosion had four contestants per round take three turns each to win money by slapping a stopper button that would land on a letter in the word “Explosion.” That player would then choose the corresponding letter in the word “Cash” they wanted to turn over. That person would win whatever prize money was revealed.

Look at this and we'll get back to the story.

Now here's what the new format is like.

Kinda dark and feels like Millionaire, but not for this show. The revamped version, however, has squeezed all eight contestants into a single round. Each player takes their turn approaching the “Spotlight” game board one at a time to pick three numbered tiles. The money behind those three tiles would then be added up. The two players with the most accrued money move on to the “Cash Challenge” finale.
While the “Cash Challenge” has a slightly different look, its concept remains the same. Next Wednesday on game Show Live!, your reactions to the new look Cash Explosion.

Since we're in Carly Smashes September, here's a new segment called......

Horoscope Hangovers. Here to read your fortune while you watch Wheel Of Fortune......The Sassy Astrologist.

And now, sing it Carly Smashes Ivory!

That's all for now, but remember one thing:  Make Me A Millionaire should've added more games at all. Really. Rat Race and Hot Seat would've gotten inspired by it. 

 So until next time and all the on playas.

 The Opening Toss-Up story.

CBS announced today the 18 castaways who will compete against each other on SURVIVOR, when the Emmy Award-winning series premieres Wednesday, Sept. 27 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. This season returns to the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji and will celebrate the 35th edition of the series.
This edition, themed "Heroes v. Healers v. Hustlers," will feature 18 castaways, divided into three groups of six based on how they are perceived by others. Heroes are used to being heralded for their achievements, healers receive gratitude for their work and hustlers must earn respect from others. These castaways will be forced to compete against each other with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast each other in an attempt to become the Sole Survivor. The show is hosted by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst. This season's castaways include an Olympian, an NFL player, a bellhop, a diversity advocate and a urologist.

MTV today announced that singer and actress Christina Milian will join Lance Bass as host of the network's highly anticipated new series "90's HOUSE," premiering Tuesday, September 26th at 11 PM ET/PT. 90's fan-favorite guest stars include Mario Lopez, Tatyana Ali, Michelle Williams, Joey Fatone, Marques Houston, Tyson Beckford, Salt N' Pepa, Kid N' Play, Bill Bellamy, Joey Lawrence, Kel Mitchell, Lori Beth Denberg and more.
The competition show places 12 millennial housemates in a 90's inspired house that forces the young adults to officially unplug their modern-day devices and party like it's 1990. With only the technology, catch phrases and fashion from that decade, each episode opponents will face elimination by competing in various 90's themed challenges. The raddest contestant will win $90K, a Mazda Miata and two VIP tickets on a 90's cruise.

Milian is a multi-talented phenomenon whose career has spanned multiple, chart topping records including "Between Me and You, "AM to PM," and the two time Grammy-nominated "Dip It Low," from her second studio album, "It's About Time." Her co-songwriting credits include: "Play" (Jennifer Lopez), "Baby" (Justin Bieber), and "Walk Away" (Paula DeAnda). Milian's talents extend across all aspects of entertainment from "The Voice," "Dancing with the Stars," to starring as Magneta, in the remake of "Rocky Horror Picture Show." In addition, Milian has also starred in major films like "Baggage Claim," "Love Don't Cost a Thing," "Be Cool," and "Bring It On: Fight to the Finish." Currently, Milian stars in the unscripted series, "Superhuman."

Lance Bass is the quintessential illustration of a highly successful and driven jack-of-all-trades: singer, host, actor, producer, writer, entrepreneur, philanthropist and cosmonaut. Beyond his fame as a member of the phenomenally successful group *NSYNC, where the group sold an impressive 60 million plus records worldwide, Bass has made himself a household name throughout the globe. Most recently, Bass served as host of LOGO's "Finding Prince Charming," a daily panelist on "The Meredith Vieira Show" and hosted the daily SIRIUS XM pop culture talk show, "Dirty Pop Live."

Parle vous Francais, let's play the Feud!

Canal+ channel C8 in France has picked up FremantleMedia’s classic gameshow format Family Feud, which will air in an access primetime slot on Fridays from next month.
The show, which previously ran in France for 10 years as Une Famille en Or on TF1, will arrive on C8 as Family Battle on September 22.

It will air as part of daily talkshow Touche Pas a Mon Poste (TPMP), whose presenter, Cyril Hanouna, will host.

Originally a feel-good format that commented on other TV shows, TPMP found itself at the centre of controversy last season when it was accused of playing homophobic and humiliating pranks. The channel was fined €3m (US$3.6m) by regulatory body CSA after it received 47,000 complaints about the show.

C8 is appealing against the decision, but has announced TPMP will revert back to its original, less risqué format in the autumn and will now also include gameshow segments.
The channel is looking to develop its schedule in order to grow its reach. It moved into gameshows last year, enjoying success with original format Guess My Age. It also launched original primetime adventure gameshow format Cash Island a week ago.

We probably expect too much from our food shows. It’s not sufficient for a host to mug his way through the pancake palaces and greasy spoons of America — that person must be Guy Fieri, who represents the sentient id of a deep-fat fryer. A host can no longer teach viewers the perfect way to roast a chicken, they must do so while also soothing our various postmillennial neuroses. We aren’t satisfied watching the country’s best young chefs cook incredibly intricate restaurant dishes unless they do it with artificial time constraints against at least a dozen other young chefs.
That is to say, we need our food shows to be about more than food. The Great British Bake Off, which you may know as the Great British Baking Show (its title for American broadcasts on PBS), is the reigning champion of food TV that is about much more than its central, gently unfolding narrative. Look past its unending procession of custard tarts and Swiss rolls and you see that the show’s bucolic tent setting is nothing less than a “symbol of British society today.”

That quote is from Nadiya Hussain, who in addition to being a fantastic cook and the victor of the show’s sixth series — season three, Stateside — is a Muslim woman who sports fashionable hijabs and has become a star in her own right. The marrow of most GBBO assessments is that the show’s light drama functions as a sort of spiritual balm that transcends borders, most notably seen in its sensible approach to issues of diversity and representation.

It is also exceedingly popular: During the show’s previous season, which aired on BBC One, episodes garnered an average of 13.6 million viewers, and more than half the TV-viewing public throughout Britain watched its final episode live. Episodes can cause sheet-pan sales to spike by 800 percent, and one writer took an NSA-level look at social-media accounts to try to determine who would be a finalist in the upcoming season, which debuts in the U.K. this week. The Great British Bake Off, in other words, is required viewing.
So you probably heard, many times, that the show has been ruined by creator Love Productions’ cash-grab-motivated migration from (the relatively staid) BBC One to (the flashier) Channel 4. Only Paul Hollywood, one-fourth of the show’s original hosting team, made the jump to the new show. Beloved hosts Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc are headed into game-show territory, and the even-more-beloved Mary Berry diplomatically stayed behind at BBC to tour “stately” homes and help locate Britain’s Best Cook

One Food Network chef has a challenge.

Alton Brown takes over the Chopped kitchen for this epic five-part tournament, Chopped: Alton's Challenge, premiering Tuesday, October 10th at 10pm ET/PT on Food Network. Four competitors face off each episode to create unique and delicious dishes over three rounds - appetizer, entrée, dessert - utilizing the mystery ingredients with a theme, as they must impress a rotating panel of Chopped and special guest judges, including Alton himself! Ted Allen hosts the edge-of-your-seat competition as Alton influences the mystery baskets and demonstrates the science of some of the ingredients throughout the tournament. Over the course of the tournament the chefs are put to the test with challenges that tap into the science of cooking and the physics of food, with each winner from the four preliminary heats competing in the finale airing Tuesday, November 7th, with a chance to impress Alton and the judges, and go home with a $50,000 grand prize.

Fuse is ready to take trivia down.

Fuse has ordered “Trivial Takedown,” a U.S. version of British pop culture gameshow “Blink” that the cable net promises will be “the fastest quiz on TV.”
The show pits two celebrity contestants against each other in a head-to-head competition to identify music and pop culture icons. The format comes from British producer and distributor Zig Zag, which did the Fuse deal and is making the U.S. version. Production is underway in L.A.

In Britain, two seasons of “Blink” have aired on free-to-air broadcaster Channel 4. Celebrities and social media influencers confirmed for Season 1 of “Trivial Takedown” include Flula Borg and Mamrie Hart, both of whom have deals with Lionsgate, Frankie Grande, GloZelle, Omarion, Brittany Furlan, Gina Brillon, and Chico Bean.

The U.S. show was ordered before Fuse inked a deal with Complex Networks that will include distributing Fuse-branded content on Complex Networks, but it will be part of that programming. TV airtime for “Trivial Takedown” is to be confirmed, but the expectation is late primetime, or late night.

On linear TV, “Trivial Takedown” will comprise 20 half-hour installments, while Complex Networks will air short-form versions and segments on its digital platforms. Fuse is also working on interactive extensions to the linear show, including a second screen game, with results displayed on an on-screen leaderboard.

The original British version of the show had a retro video-game vibe and was shot against a green screen, while the U.S. format has a dedicated set, which Fuse says help give it a millennial and social media flavor. “We’ll keep some of the look of the U.K. show and the video-game vibe, but created a set for ours; influencers are creating content out of their bedrooms on [their] phones and we wanted to capture that feel,” J-T Ladt, chief content officer for Fuse Media, told Variety.

Ladt, who joined Fuse from Red Bull TV earlier this year, says “Trivial Takedown” is indicative of his vision for attracting millennials to the cable channel. “The tone, pacing, and aesthetics of this show are right for that audience,” he said.
Fuse merged with English-language Latino-oriented channel NuvoTV in 2015. Zig Zag is the London-based indie producer behind Fox reality show “I Wanna Marry Harry.”

Now comes the squad of ladies who can act a line better than any Shakespeare play would........The Dramatic Questioners.

Now we move on to.......

Buzz-GSN where we ask you guys on the GSN facebook page everything and anything.

Loretta Kruger kicks it off with.....

"I enjoy watching your channel but you are getting carried away with Family Feud,,,how about switching some of the early versions with versions of Cash Cab..its on too late and we like that show."

But Cash Cab is coming back this fall, can you believe that?   harry Hill is up and he says......

"Thank you for finally going a little forward of (The $25,000 Pyramid) into Fall 1983, but you should've aired these a long time ago, you wasted too many years and you skipped one episode from The Post/Kline Week."

That's much appreciated. Phil Peluso says......

"My sister and I love watching this channel when we are having dinner and we love it. What I don't love , is the sponsors-the drug comapnies that go on with graphic detail-how their drugs can cause Diarreah, vomiting, etc..... while I am trying to eat my dinner. How about putting on companies, like Brillo, Chiquita Banana, Chevrolet...stuff without gross stuff in it?"

I guess that's what GSN does, huh? Eric Denies says.....

"I love GSN, Family Feud is constantly on in our apartment - however whoever green lighted Snap Decision should really regret that decision. This show is absolutely terrible!! Please cancel ASAP!! There is no skill involved whatsoever, based entirely on stereotyping, and the host is awful. Ironically he seems to try to resemble Steve. Sorry for the harsh words, but I think I speak for a lot of viewers."

But it'll be on just fall to Sinclair stations also. Don't worry about it. Kris Camron goes with......

"Dear Game show network. I was just watching a episode of Divided and I must say that I was a little alarmed by a couple of comments made by one of the contestants, who just happened to be black. At the end of this episode, the guy, who just happened to be "white", had kept the group from winning money because he felt he shouldn't choose the last spot. I am offended by the "white male privilege" comment that came from one of the female "black" contestants.. If he would have said anything related to color, it would have been labeled racist. Normally, i do not comment on this stuff, but I think editing should have cut that out. With everything going on in the world today, I would hope you would be more pc. Wont be watching that show again.... — feeling concerned."

Guess it's a case of "All Lives really do Matter", don't it?

Laurie Perper gets the last one:

I" just watched the episode with David. He demanded all or nothing. He was appalling and in this time of hatred and white supremacy, to allow him on the show and then to air the show is disgusting. I liked Divided but I will never watch again."

Yep. Talk about someone who hates it.

On to a question I often ask time and time again:  Can you....Sqramble This?

Hint: In 1977, an NBA team won one in this city. Give it some thought after a Google Play music interlude because all September it's.....

Carly Smashes September. Direct from the Hal Hidey school of prize music, it's Carly Ann Worden doing music like you've never seen it before.

Ready to see what the answer is? It's.......

It was the trailblazers that won the 1977 NBA title over Philadelphia.

Now it's Time to Adorkable Rachel's Ridiculous Radical Radiant reviews of...........Rhinoplasty!

And our last segment is.......

There, you happy now?

That's it for this week. Today's consolation prize is your very own Tinder date, complete with dinner, a matinee movie and a motel room somewhere that we actually paid for all this................kinda.

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.
