Hall of.....hall.

Stephanie Panisello: From Ghost to ghost, cemetery to Cemetary, haunted house to haunted house and beyond the far reaches of the pumpkin patch, it's time to go all the way live on....

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

Me: Thank you Stephanie Panisello and flying in like a dove, it's Game Show Live!, as frightening as it gets, as squeamish as it happens and and as scared whenever you feel like it.

Our program is presented by Party City. You think things get scarier? With Party, City, you can. All the costumes to stock up for Halloween. It's time to let it fly with......

 The Opening Toss-Up story.

It's been one week since Monty Hall passed away. So how did they do a tribute? Well, Buzzr was the first to start things out with. Last Tuesday, Buzzr did a tribute to Monty by airing LMAD and BTC' 79. Buzzr also did it that same Saturday. CBS had no choice but to honor him the right way on LMAD on Friday afternoon. GSN decided to run a marathon for the first time in years by running a tribute with LMAD eps on Sunday. What a way to go out on a tribute to TV's Big Dealer. He will be missed.

Coming right up, the Idol judging makes it official. That's on the way, but first......

It's Station Break time! A gaggle of commercials. Which happens.....after these messages.

Welcome back to Game Show Live!  Later on, Rick & Morty take a trip to Sonic and the results......well, you'll find out.

The Idol judging picture is starting to get into shape.

Grammy- and Emmy-nominated music luminary Katy Perry, country music superstar Luke Bryan and music icon Lionel Richie, along with host and producer extraordinaire Ryan Seacrest, were on hand when ABC's AMERICAN IDOL kicked off judge auditions in New York City this week. The three judges round out the panel for the beloved music competition series' first season on ABC, and Ryan Seacrest returns as host. Check out the photo below!
At its new home on ABC, "American Idol" will continue to be a force in the television landscape, reaching every corner of the country in its search for the next great music sensation.
As previously reported, Ryan Seacrest will return to host Season 16 of Idol, which is slated to premiere in March 2018.

Nick Cannon-Ball!

Nickelodeon treats fans to all the fright and fun of Halloween in Lip Sync Battle Shorties Halloween Special, airing Sunday, Oct. 15, at 7:00 P.M. (ET/PT). The all-new episode, hosted by multi-faceted entertainer Nick Cannon, features real-life kid participants syncing and dancing their hearts out to their favorite pop songs, set against Halloween-themed stages. The special also features a surprise appearance by Rico Rodriguez (Modern Family), who will present the Lip Sync Battle Shorties winner with their very own Shorties blinged-out mic.
In Lip Sync Battle Shorties Halloween Special, three hyped-up kid-battlers from across the country use their imagination to personalize their Halloween-themed performances from eccentric decorations to monster-themed costumes. Those going head to head include: Serena, from Staten Island, NY, performing one of her favorite songs "Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga; Ethan from Salt Lake City, taking on "Immortals" by Fall Out Boy; and Kea from Honolulu, lip syncing "Rolex" by Ayo & Teo.
Viewers are in for a treat as Rodriguez surprises the contestants and joins them, along with host Cannon, show sidekick and commentator JoJo Siwa and the Shorties Dance Crew, for a Halloween celebratory performance of the classic "Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker Jr.

Here's one:

From Digital Spy
Comedy game show Takeshi's Castle is being rebooted, though it looks like we'll no longer have Craig Charles' dulcet tones to guide us through all the mayhem.

Comedy Central will be showing all-new episodes of the series this autumn, this time with Jonathan Ross providing the commentary.

Shot in Thailand, the show will see 100 members of the public try to tackle a number of ridiculous obstacles as they attempt to storm a castle.

"Takeshi's Castle is the gold standard of physical game shows and we can't wait to bring the delightful mayhem of this show back to the UK with this new series," said Louise Holmes, Vice President, General Manager, Comedy Central UK.

"Jonathan's comedic brilliance will add a fresh level of funny to this well-loved format for both original fans and hopefully, a whole new generation of 'Keshi-heads'."

Takeshi's Castle originally aired in Japan in the late 1980s, before transferring worldwide including the United Kingdom

But what does this remind you of?

MXC or Most Extreme Elimination Challenge. A program which dubs the program and makes it look funny with fake names to avoid....obvious issues. So much fun.

This next story adds a ring to it....

Every major player in the nonscripted space has been trying to make reality TV interactive, to stitch together the AARP-heavy live TV audiences with millennial-friendly multiscreen viewers. Everyone, so far, has failed. (Remember ABC's short-lived Rising Star? Didn't think so.)
5 Gold Rings is Talpa's big interactive play. The trivia show, in which contestants place gold rings over their answers on a giant LED screen while viewers play along at home on their phones, has just been renewed for a second season on Britain's ITV and is also on the air in France and the Netherlands.

"We really focused on embedding interactivity in the initial phase of the content process, so it doesn't come as an afterthought but is truly integrated and feels natural," says Maarten Meijs, managing director of Talpa Global. "There needs to be a level of interactivity and connectivity to reach our viewers where they are."

It's still too early to say whether 5 Gold Rings will be the interactive breakout the market has been waiting for. Compared to Talpa juggernauts like The Voice, it is still a minnow, sold to just a handful of territories. NBC commissioned a U.S. pilot of the format but passed on the series, and Talpa is currently rethinking its American strategy.

"It's a very technical show, and we are attempting to have the exact same game on mobile devices as we have on live TV," says de Mol. "The challenge is to get the viewer to download the app and play along, but the penetration [for the U.K. version] was very high and will hopefully grow in season two."

Interactive or not, Talpa is betting big on a game show revival at this year's MIPCOM, with an array of formats, including The Big Picture, Divided and What Do I Know?, tapping into a new vogue for the genre (think ABC's revivals of Match Game and Pyramid).
"You see that this genre, one of the oldest genres on television, is coming back," says Meijs. "The challenge is always to be original, to add interactive technology components when they make sense and, most of all, to take risks."

Take this if you will.

Trivial Takedown is a comedy game show where your favorite comedians, musicians and social media celebs face off and have their pop culture and music knowledge tested in a rapid-fire battle. And you can compete and test your own pop culture IQ by playing along. Watch. Experience. Win.

This season will feature some of today's hottest celebrities, musical artists and a cast of influencers including Kid Ink, Flula Borg, Frankie Grande, GloZelle, Mamrie Hart, Omarion, Brittany Furlan, Gina Brillon, Romeo Miller, Tim Delaghetto, Justine Marino, Kingsley, Ayo & Teo, Sevyn Streeter and Chico Bean.
Catch the 1-hour Trivial Takedown premiere Tuesday, November 7 @ 11PM on Fuse.

Shall we play....

Madi2theMax: Incoginto. 

When Madison Brunoehler is not doing impressions just for fun, she "allegedly" and I mean by that, sneak in as a contestant on TV game shows. So tell us, what game show did she sneak herself in?

Here's a hint: A punny thing.

Ponder on that after a Google Play music interlude from.......Svengoolie.

Now let's reveal the answer and pull back the curtain.....

Image result for quicksilver game show

Quicksilver. A show Maude Garrett, Jamie Petitto or Anna Kerr of Circiots and Coffee should've hosted it. Ron Maestri hosted his only game show for the USA network. It should've been in syndication had it been for the returning champion rule. Oh, and those questions.................................

Tune in next week to see where she goes incognito.

Let's celebrate....

Clarktoberfest. All of the moments of the show that made him best from the man that made him best.....DICK CLARK!!!!

That's it for this week. Today's Con-Scare-ation prize is a VIP tour of the Trivia Murder Party house. Where nobody comes out dead. That goes for you, too, Lilbumblebear.

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.................................Scare on, playas.
