Livewire! 12/1

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

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

Egg Nog. It tastes so good.......even Santa likes it. Yeah.

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

Me: Thank you Madi2theMax, welcome to Livewire!  Well kids, here we are, the last Livewire! of 2017. It's been a blast giving you faster headlines at the speed of light and sound to give you a bi-weekly news program focusing on reality and game shows giving you a more fun and relaxed atmosphere. And we promise 2018 will be a more safer and saner environment. For the last time, here's the news....................with sass.

Hooked up with a square

Finding Neverland finds it's Captain Hook: Joooooooooohn Davidson. That's right, the 2nd host of the Hollywood Squares is donning the pirate suit and plays antagonist to Peter Pan. Expect Jm. J. Bullock playing Tinkerbell. 

A preggo Spark

AI alum Jordin Sparks is about to have a baby boy. 

The pregnant singer and sixth-season American Idol winner took to Instagram to share the big news with fans. 

Sparks posted a photo of Isaiah and herself on November 23 in which they were sitting outside and grabbing onto strips of blue confetti. 

"IT'S A BOY!!! We have so much to be thankful for and this is definitely at the top of the list!" Sparks, 27, captioned the picture on Thanksgiving day. "@_danaisaiah's gonna have a little mini me running around! We can't wait to meet him. We love you lil man!" 

In the photo, Sparks was wearing a hot pink T-shirt and jeans while cradling her baby bump with one hand, and Isaiah was sporting a baby blue shirt with dark pants. The couple was clearly celebrating their own little gender-reveal party. 

Another World

All DJ Khaled does is win, win, win but he already won.......a birthday.

"Today @djkhaled celebrates anotha one. Happy bday bro!" Seacrest wrote on Twitter in reference to one of Khaled's catchphrases alongside a selfie of himself with Khaled and Combs, who will serve as panelists on Fox's new upcoming "The Four" reality singing competition.
Khaled is seen in the photo wearing an all-black outfit including a jacket while Seacrest and Combs are donning more formal attire.
"ITS MY B DAY !!!!!!! GOD IS THE GREATEST!!!!!!!!!!" Khaled wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of himself holding his 1-year-old son, Asahd Tuck Khaled, amongst balloons.
"ALL THIS LUV IS MAKING A ME TEAR UP!!!!!" he wrote. Well-wishers included Busta RhymesT-Pain and Trina.


In case you have heard, he is now 42 years old.

Long day of christmas decorations and planning a holiday party in the newsroom, so  we decided to do a quick nap. So Meadowfox, soothe me with your harp! Now!

Where was I?

Oh yeah, egg nog sales spiked up 75%. I wonder why the Grimsborough Galleria is playing christmas remixes all December? Moving on.....

I want You.....and a Turkey!

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton had the best Thanksgiving ever.

The singer's message accompanied a photo of her smiling while the fellow music star and "The Voice" coach kisses her cheek.
They are standing next to another couple doing likewise.
"Family #sograteful gx #happythanksgiving," she captioned another group photo.
The couple, who have been together for about two years, spent the holiday in Oklahoma, E! News said.
Stefani's three sons with her ex-husband, rocker Gavin Rossdale, were also there to celebrate.


It takes 2 to make a samba go right.......

For 2 stars from this past season, they're not done..........yet.

For the first time ever, two celebrity finalists will be joining DANCING WITH THE STARS winter tour, "Dancing with the Stars: Live! - Light Up the Night." Season 25 Mirrorball Champion Jordan Fisher ("Hamilton," "Grease: Live!") and actor/race car driver Frankie Muniz ("Agent Cody Banks," "Malcolm in the Middle") will reprise their incredible season 25 performances alongside their professional partners Lindsay Arnold and Witney Carson.

Fans who voted Frankie and Jordan all the way into the finals will now have a chance to see the standout season 25 competitors perform live in their very own hometowns. This all-new production showcases every style of dance seen on ABC's hit show, produced by BBC Worldwide Productions, from sizzling salsas to elegant waltzes and high-energy group numbers, plus original pieces choreographed by Emmy®-winning choreographer Mandy Moore.

When it comes to newer things on Livewire!, we always expect surprises. One of them is.....

"Really, Doe?"

Our newsroom saw this: 

If you're watching this, it's a japanese game show where 6 players go up a slippery staircase.....and slip down as many times as possible. Hilarity ensues. A lot. Really, doe?

Quiz Busted!

With Quizbusters marking the end of an era, here's some info to see a long-running high school quiz program take it's final bow. Seriously. For real.

A merry maze gets a merrier story.

The Crystal Maze is returning for a Christmas celebrity special, all for Stand Up to Cancer.

The Channel 4 gameshow, fronted by Richard Ayoade, will be welcoming Saturdays singer Mollie King (who is, of course, currently competing in BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing) and Made in Chelsea's Ollie Locke, as well as Murder in Successville actor Tom Davis and boxer Nicola Adams.

Paralympian and gold-medalist swimmer Ellie Simmonds has been announced as the team captain.

The Christmas special will be getting a holidays touch, as the Aztec, Medieval, Industrial, and Futuristic zones will be "festooned with festive frivolity".

Jessica Hynes and Adam Buxton are also reprising their roles as The Knight and Jarhead respectively.

The episode will be broadcast sometime in December.

Now we get thsi timeless holiday classic from Mannheim Steamroller. Go to it, boys!

That's all for this year, but remember one thing: santa Claus is coming to town.

We leave you now with Madi2Themax doing Frozen. Let's end in a big way. Until 2018......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................Play on playas.

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

Me: Thank you Stephanie Panisello and welcome to the program that hears what you hear. Game show Live! As jolly as it gets, as merry as it happens and as toasty and warm whenever you feel Fa-la-la-la-like it.

Today's program is presented this month by Hobby Lobby. With the whole thanksgiving thing out of the way, we enter the holidays. You enter the store and you get something to enlighten your Christmas. That's Hobby Lobby. Now listen to what I say with.....

 The Opening Toss-Up story.

Let's draw in today's top story.

For the first time, the series will welcome back three "Ink Master" winners to coach and mentor artists in the quest for $100,000, an editorial feature in Inked and the coveted title of "Ink Master." In addition, the former "Masters," Season Two's Steve Tefft, Season Seven's Anthony Michaels and Season Nine's DJ Tambe, will be competing against each other to win $100,000 of their own. From Truly Original, the tenth season of "Ink Master," titled "Ink Master: Return Of The Masters," will debut on Spike TV starting January 9 and will continue to air on Tuesday nights when the network relaunches as Paramount Network on January 18.

Throughout the competition, the artists will be tested on their technical skills along with their on-the-spot creativity, as they must conceive and execute original tattoos on "human canvases." Each episode will focus on a different and distinct style of tattooing and, as always, while the artists' masterpieces will last a lifetime, so will their mistakes.

After each challenge, the contestants will face a tough panel comprised of musician, filmmaker and artist Dave Navarro, as well as world-renowned tattoo artists Chris Nu�ez ("Miami Ink") and Oliver Peck (Elm Street Tattoo).

Welcome back to Game Show Live! Later on, we speak to "Toy Freaks" as they break their silence for the first time since Youtube took them down.

(song fades out)

Tom Bergeron has announced Season 26 of Dancing with the Stars will only air in Fall 2018 instead of this coming spring. "There will be a mini-Spring season (4 Weeks). Not DWTS Junior. More info Tuesday," Tom tweeted on Monday ahead of Dancing with the Stars' Season 25 finals.

After questions and comments poured in from concerned fans on Twitter, Tom elaborated, "Season 26 of @DancingABC will be next Fall."

The game is available now at a price of $19.99 for a limited time, and the developers have already announced that a Season Pass will become available early 2018 that features special event quizzes and other game features. For more on It’s Quiz Time, check out below:

MXC goes to Saudi Arabia....but.......why?   Well..........

Saudi Arabia’s General Sports Authority (GSA), which is responsible for all sports-related actvities in the Kingdom, has partnered with Japan’s Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS) to bring Takeshi’s Castle onto screens in the Kingdom for a new version of the cult Japanese TV show, returning for the first time since 1990.

The Saudi version of Takeshi’s Castle will debut in late 2018 across several of the country’s leading channels and see the fast-paced physical gameshow and its signature challenges be transported to a Saudi setting. An Arab style castle featuring over 50 obstacles will be built in Riyadh over a period of 10 months, in a space of 300k sqm.

The weekly program will be open to everyone in the region and will run over 13 weeks, with huge prizes and new challenges each week

And now a 30-second holiday song break with Lilbumblebear which starts as soon as I chug the egg nog.........

Back to the news.

It seems that Winsanity wanted to welcome the  2nd season, but  it disappeared out of nowhere. Can this be true?

This is what Buzzerblog tweeted out.

Maybe it was because of the changes. Oh well.

Now a question that confuses many doctors and lawyers.......Can You......Sqramble This?

Hint: Why are you staring at dinosaurs?

Give yourself a little pondering after this Google Play Music Interlude because we are concluding.........

NAN-NOVEMBER! I wonder what our resident Remote Control redhead Christa Nannos is singing this time......

And here's the gorgeous reveal to this puzzle......

Doesn't that  make you want to watch "Night At The Museum?"

Okay kids, let's admit it......

"The Joker's Wild was better over Drop The mic."

The show put Snoop Doog on the Game show scene and Drop the mic is just a rap battle. That's all. While the new TJW puts in puzzles to trivia questions other versions didn't do, Drop the Mic hires in a beatboxer to keep up with the energy of the battle. Kaila Mullady wouldve been a better hire. TJW enlists Pyramid host Michael Strahan as producer while Drop The mic gets in James Corden as producer. This isn't the first time a late night segement gets its own show, Lip Sync Battle was on Fallon first and made it a bigger hit today. So admit, The Joker's Wild is better than Drop The Mic. Any questions?

 That's it for this week, today's "lump of coal in the stocking" is a copy of that new BTS album......which I have no idea why they named it but...............

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. Happy holidays everyone, and until we return, Play on playas.
