Kelly Clarkson, an AI alum didn't take her new job very seriously.

The Knockout Rounds will begin airing on Monday, October 30, and Kelly, the first-ever American Idol winner, will be shown mentoring the contestants on Blake SheltonAdam LevineMiley Cyrus, and Jennifer Hudson's teams. 

When describing her coaching style, Kelly said she's a mix of Simon Cowell -- who is known for being brutally honest and sometimes a bit harsh -- and Blake, who is pretty much a country-singing teddy bear. 

"I feel like I'm a mix of Simon and Blake. I'm constructive because it would be impossible for me not to be, if you know my mother," Kelly told Us Weekly

"I grew up with constructive criticism. And it made me a better human... I'm just saying I think that I'm incapable of not giving criticism constructively. So I think that's like Simon." 

Kelly, 35, joked that she's going to need "a cape" for her role as a "mega mentor" on NBC's The Voice this season. 

Normally, we'd do a 30-second song break with Lilbumblebear, but since it's gloomy out, we decided to do a quick nap. So Meadowfox, soothe me with your harp! Now!

Where was I?

Oh yeah, The Astros had a victory parade. Let's move on.

Stick to playing the violin

Lindsey Stirling may be a Youtube star, bur dancing might not be her strong suit. Earlier this week, she fractured a rib. This happened Sunday during a rehearsal. As of now, the newsroom tells us that they powered through. They scored a 30 on Halloween week. Very inspirational.


New singing competition series THE FOUR: BATTLE FOR STARDOM begins where most competitions end: with the four finalists. Four super-talented and fiercely competitive singers, chosen from their auditions by the show's panel of music industry experts, will try to defend their coveted spots on the stage, as they are challenged individually by new singers determined to replace them. Each week, if any of the four are outperformed, they'll go home and their challengers will take their place.
And those challengers could be fans who had been sitting on a couch one week, and singing onstage the next. Viewers who think they've got the talent to compete and unseat the four singers onstage will have the opportunity to submit an audition video. America will have the chance to decide who is brought onto the show by voting on the available streamed auditions and influencing which challengers will take on THE FOUR and shake up the competition.
If the existing four singers outperform their challengers, then they survive to sing another week, until the end of the season, when the singers have safely secured their spots on stage and face off against each other, resulting in one being named the winner. At stake is the ultimate prize: the panel of industry experts becomes key players on the winner's team. This elite group of star-makers will help shepherd the winner's career and be fully invested in making him or her a breakout star.


"I'll take A: Hole. Final Answer."

Demario Jackson of The Bachelor fan isn't liking the current host of "Millionaire."

uring an appearance on the Rose Buds podcast, DeMario was asked to say the first word that comes to mind when hearing a name or topic, and when "Chris Harrison" was brought up, DeMario responded with a sigh of disgust before blurting out "assh-le." 

"Prior to the whole [Corinne Olympios] show, [Chris] had a hard on for me as if like, I like, hooked up with his wife or something. It was crazy," DeMario said on October 24. 

DeMario made a name for himself on The Bachelorette's thirteenth season starring Rachel Lindsay when his alleged girlfriend back home, Lexi, showed up on a group date in Los Angeles to throw DeMario under the bus. Rachel felt betrayed and played, so she sent DeMario packing, although he later claimed Lexi was just a "side chick" he wasn't seriously dating. 

"I met this guy three total times for less than 10 seconds and he legit hated [me]," DeMario continued on the podcast when talking about Chris. 

"When I say hate, like deep-rooted. Like, him and I at The Men Tell All, we had like 30 minutes of battle and I'm like, 'Bro, Lexi, was not -- there was nothing. I was already told they put her up to it. Come on, we all know this.' And then he went to the press and talked all this sh-t when we were in the middle of all this." 

Following The Men Tell All taping, Chris told E! News that DeMario was "a loudmouth." 

The Imperfect 10

The ABC mystery Ten Days in the Valley got the axe. Literally. In its place: The hit-invention thing known as Shark Tank. But actress Kyra Sedgewick tweeted this:

And here's what we know about it.

Effective immediately, Shark Tank will air back-to-back episodes at 9/8c and 10 pm on Sundays through Nov. 12. The American Music Awards will air on Sunday, Nov. 19.
Ten Days will return at 9/8c on Saturday, Dec. 16, with back-to-back episodes. Single episodes will air at 10 pm on Dec. 23 and 30, and the season will wrap with a two-hour finale on Jan. 6 at 9 pm.


Katy Perry in Nashville played Wonder Woman......sort of.

The 32-year-old singer and upcoming "American Idol" judge jumped into the crowd after a floating prop malfunctioned Wednesday during a show on her Witness tour, according to E! News.
Perry was performing at Bridgestone Arena when her stage's suspension system stopped working.
She joked about the failure as the prop, which was shaped like the planet Saturn, was lowered into the audience.
"This is the first time that I've been stuck in space," the star said, according to People. "I know I'm kind of a space cadet, but actually this thing is stuck."
Perry hovered for a few moments before diving the final few feet into the crowd.
"Well, I guess I'm just going to have to get down and walk amongst my people," she said before jumping. "This is what you get for trying to bring out all of space to Nashville."


And now, enjoy one of those chicken nuggets of joy from our Match Game mistress of impressionism, Madi2TheMax.

Our own Remote Control redhead Christa Nannos has had an awesome wedding season all year and here's why she wants to find a song.

That's all for now, but remember one thing: If High School Quiz Show is added in Philadelphia and Smackdown Live's Tom Phillips is the host, then it's on!

So until next time and all the on playas.

Variety may be the spice of life, but Buzzr adds it and here's why.....


Welcome back to Game Show Live! Just later on, we'll show you how to make your house fly like the Disney film "Up."

(song fades out)

But first, we saw Snoop Dogg take the Joker's Wild and it was what a reboot of the classic was expected with guest stars popping in for trivia questions and drug references. Yes, drug references. So here's a 4-word review for you...



magine having thousands of dollars at your fingertips, only to have it disappear in an instant. Such is the premise of Seven’s high-stakes game show The Wall, where teams of two answer a series of general knowledge questions before the drop of a ball down a four-storey wall determines just how much they win.

The result could be life-changing or teams could walk away empty-handed.

Co-created by LeBron James, the drama-fuelled game show launched in the US last year and has become a huge international hit, spawning successful versions in France, Belgium, Germany and Canada.

The Australian installment hits screens this week, with Axle Whitehead stepping in as host.

Having called Los Angeles home for the past four years, the 36-year-old says the offer to be a part of the Australian version was one he couldn’t refuse.

“I was a fan of the show when it was on in the US,” the singer/actor enthuses by phone from LA.

“I’ve been out of Australia working over in the States, so to be working with Australians is a great reminder to me of just how awesome Australians are and how they’re just everyday people ... with a great sense of humor and they’re just fighters and they keep going through whatever life throws at them, so that for me was a really nice experience.

“Professionally and personally, it has been a really awesome experience and I hope that Australians lap it up and we can make more of it. I didn’t expect to really connect with the people but when you’re there, you can’t help but be moved by it.”

Shot in Poland, where several European versions are filmed, the commanding set is spearheaded by a 12m high by 14m wide wall that comprises 187 pegs which determine where the ball drops and how much money is added — or subtracted — to a team’s tally.

And the Winsanity goes on.

The all new WINSANITY, hosted by actor Donald Faison ("Scrubs"), will return for a second season airing weeknights at 5 p.m. ET (4 p.m. CT) starting Monday, November 27.

WINSANITY, which debuted in June 2016, was watched by nearly 13.5 million viewers during its initial 40-episode run. Changes to the show in season two include a new set, as well as a new format, with two contestants (instead of one) competing against each other for the $10,000 prize. However, the show continues to offer the opportunity for prizes to be won not only by the contestants but also by the studio audience.

In each half hour episode, the two contestants each represents half of the audience, who stand to share in the prize money their contestant wins. The contestants face off against each other, attempting to rank compelling and surprising facts in numerical order (i.e.: Which is greater: the number of marriages each year in the US, or the number of Pope Francis' Twitter followers?). Each correctly stacked fact earns money towards a cash jackpot.

In the final round, the contestant with the largest bank will play a final game of timed touch screen stacking without help from the audience. If they correctly put five facts in order, the contestant goes home with $10,000 and their audience section will share in an additional $10,000. If they fail, the contestant and audience section win the amount previously banked.

Behind some virtual door is......

Since Let's Make a Deal's inception in 1963 the variety game show has transformed its content considerably over the years. And now the Wayne Brady-hosted series is starting to break into virtual reality.

Pegged to Halloween on Tuesday, the show has revealed a series shot in 360-degree 3D video that introduces a way for fans at home to actually step foot inside the studio from the comfort of their homes.

Producer Jersey Feimster told The Hollywood Reporter of the newest addition to the show: "It is a virtual-reality experience as the host of Let's Make a Deal. Viewers can step into Wayne Brady's shoes and get a 3D perspective of being the host of the show." 

He added, "this is an opportunity for Let's Make a Deal to use new technology to engage with our home audience. They'll feel like they're stepping right onto the Let's Make a Deal stage without even leaving their home."

Said Brady, "They'll see the costumes and will experience the craziness that the audience can bring first hand." 

The longtime CBS show is slated to unveil a total of 15 VR behind-the-scenes experiences that will be introduced throughout the season with the Halloween episode being the first one. 

The newest development comes a month after the death of the show's original host Monty Hall. 

As for how Brady plans to evolve the series going forward the host quips, "We'll continue Monty's legacy of making people smile and changing lives—with my comedy spin on it, of course. If it ain't broke ...

Climb up the viral mountain to this.....

ouTube has ordered Ultimate Expedition, a 10-episode adventure competition series from Rabbit Films that challenges eight celebrities with no climbing experience to scale Peru’s nearly 20,000-foot Mount Tocllaraju.

Here’s the logline for the series hosted by Rabbit Films USA President and Dudesons ringleader Jukka Hildén that will premiere on YouTube Red next year: Mount Tocllaraju is not the only mountain the cast is trying to conquer. Each climber has a personal challenge they are hoping to summit. Some are chasing dreams, some are redefining themselves, and some are looking for a spiritual awakening. They will experience elation, anger, and even a bit of comedy, on their way to finding joy as they work to overcome personal obstacles. This expedition is a rare opportunity to isolate themselves from the daily stress of the modern world — and prove that nothing is impossible.

“The stakes are high, and the risk is even higher, but everyone has an inner drive and motivation to summit the mountain both physically and metaphorically speaking,” Hildén said. “There are no second chances. You gotta leave it all on the field. Because here, you’re competing against the greatest adversary of them all: yourself. Here is where true heroes are made.”

It's an international Netflix food battle royal!

No sooner than right after you finish Stranger Things 2 (which debuts on October 27), another long-awaited Netflix original will make its debut. Marvel's (but really Jon Bernthal's) The Punisher is coming on November 17. 

If insane levels of stylized violence isn't your thing, try insane levels of stylized everything else with season 2 of Maria Bamford's madcap Lady Dynamite on November 10.

But if you're a fan of food competitions, Netflix has you covered there, too. 

October 31 - Zumbo's Just Desserts: Season 1 - NETFLIX ORIGINAL (originally aired on Seven Network Australia)
November 3 - The Big Family Cooking Showdown: Season 1 — NETFLIX ORIGINAL (originally airing on BBC Two)

1st of November means an all-new.....

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

Um....a litlte Catherwood may mix it up for good measure. Marie Logerfo wants to know....

When will you air "Shop 'Til You Drop" with JD Roberto?

My Guess:

I don't think so. Michael Anthony Castellon tells us.....

"Oh come on, Give us a break man. Too much Family Feud and if you're gonna air too much Feud why don't you change your name to FFN (Family Feud Network) and just get it over with. Damn too much Feud back to back."

Really. Really. GSN is GSN and that is business.

Shantilla Davis asks: 

"What happened to Snap Decision?"

To answer that question, the previous commenter said:

"They care more about Feud so i guess GSNprobably cancelled Snap Decision to make room for Feud and too much Feud."

So in other words, it went in one ear and out the other.  Michael Fox, no not the actor says:

"50 hours a week of Harvey Feud?
That's disgusting. Show Combs or Dawson... Show some other shows like Press Your Luck, Lets Make A Deal, Jokers Wild, Bullseye, Supermarket Sweep.... Etc....
Just change your name to HFN and get it over with!"

Finally, Loretta Kruger: 

"I am a senior, dont get around much so I watch your channel most of the day But..why in the world is Steve Harvey on from 5 to 10 when you have other great shows on at ten or 11 at nite.Really getting sick of think people that work REALLY want to watch him All evening,,according to some of my friends they switched to other channels."

Aren't you sick of Harvey on the channel?

Now a question I never get sick of..........
