Livewire! 1/19

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

Livewire! Your news.......with sass. Presented by Pennywise The Clown. Wanna scare kids at your next birthday party? Hire this clown......or not. 

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

Me: Thank you Madi2theMax, welcome to Livewire! Snow is melting, weather is getting milder and we're ready to make more news from out of the furnace and in to the microwave. It's on a TV dinner tray and it's ready for you. So let's.................get wired!

Kimye.....yes, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.....have a third child. 

The 37-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star announced the big news Tuesday that she's now a mom of three kids on her official website. 

"She's here!" Kim titled her post. "We're so in love." 

The couple's daughter was born via surrogate on January 15 at 12:47AM, weighing seven pounds and six ounces. 

"Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl," Kim revealed to the world. 

"We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister. Love, Kim Kardashian West." 

Kim and Kanye's new addition joins big brother Saint, 2, and big sister North, 4. 

WWE Superstar Jey Uso, one-half of “SmackDown Live” Tag Team Champions The Usos, has been arrested on DWI charges in Texas.
A booking officer in Hidalgo County told TheWrap that the wrestler, whose real name is Joshua Samuel Fatu, was arrested on Sunday. He signed a personal recognizance bond for his own release.
“Joshua Fatu is responsible for his own personal actions,” a WWE spokesperson toldTheWrap. “We are investigating the matter and awaiting information from local law enforcement officials.”

Nick Viall just revealed last week he's dating again following his split from ex-fiancee Vanessa Grimaldi, but he apparently left out that he's seeing January Jones
Viall reportedly reached out to Jones after she admitted on The Late Late Show with James Corden last year that she's a huge fan of The Bachelor franchise. 

Jones had joked to Corden of Viall, "You don't know if you like him or if he's a scumbag, but that's why I'm attracted to him, maybe." 

And now it's time for our Game Show Live! Comix Zone content creator in.....

Jordan Sailors: Comical genius

More headlines now.

Award-winning production company World of Wonder announces today it is in development on the upcoming scripted comedy feature DRAG QUEENS ON A PLANE, executive produced by RuPaul Charles and World of Wonder's Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato and Tom Campbell. From the producers of RuPaul's Drag Race, RuPaul stars in the most glamorous disaster movie in herstory! On the maiden voyage of Glamazonian Airways, RuPaul has packed the flight with drag's finest. But some evil trolls who don't believe in loving yourself are on board and will do their damnedest to bring the plane down. Can drag's greatest queens thwart the terrorist's evil plan?

In addition to the new scripted project, World of Wonder continues its global expansion with the announcement of Drag Race Thailand, a Drag Race format extension with a fresh new set of judges and talented queens. The debut season is hosted by fashion stylist and trend-setter Art-Araya In-dra. The show, which recently went into production, will air on LINE TV and is produced locally by Kantana Group.

Phil Keoghan is about to explore.....on his own. Nat Geo Explorer, which has been seen on TBS way back when is the new host replacing Richard Bacon who was host in 2011.  And yes, he still does The Amazing Race.

Question: which red-hot app just crossed the 1 million player threshold?
Sunday night, HQ Trivia, which has surged in popularity in recent weeks, hosted 1 million players in its latest round of trivia.
The game, which is equal parts app and game show, is only available for play every day at 9 p.m. ET. On weekdays, it's also available at 3 p.m. ET.
Players get 12 multiple choice questions they must answer by tapping their choice on screen. If they get them correct, they win a cash prize.
Typically, the cash prize is around $2,000. On Sunday night, HQ upped the stakes by offering $10,000. During the event, up to 1.2 million players were seen participating at the same time.

By the way, the show's regular host wasn't here. It was Sarah Priblis that did. 

And in a related story, they're having a UK version. Sarah Carpenter, also an occasional host of the app will be the regular host of the UK version. HQ is everywhere, yo!

Why did Kelly Clarkson choose the voice over Idol? 

When ABC announced in May 2017 the network had decided to bring American Idol back after a one-year hiatus, reports swirled Kelly was ABC's top choice to sit on the judging panel. 

Kelly confessed that Idol producers did ask her to judge but she's always been interested in The Voice's format and concept. 

"It literally does come back to those Blind Auditions that really separates everything and it means something to me because I think that's who I represent, those people in this industry," Kelly explained of The Voice

"I don't fit the pop star image that people expect all the time. But I am a pop star and this is the image that I exude. That's why this show really does complement my desires for this industry." 

The 35-year-old "Love So Soft" singer is referring to how coaches on The Voice must commit to an aspiring artist based on the sound of his or her voice alone, before ever seeing the person's physical appearance. 

"That literally is the thing that separates The Voice for me... It's a rare opportunity that this show represents that people might not get through on other shows," Kelly told Us. "That's my favorite part of the show. It is interesting to make it about talent first. That's why I love this show." 

And now we turn to the Game Show Live! bulletin board.

And now for your Game Show Live! Crowning moment of awesomeness of excellence. 

Padma Lakshmi helped a Top Chef contestant with cancer. 

The 47-year-old "Top Chef" host said in an Instagram post Tuesday that she visited Fatima Ali in the hospital prior to the Season 15 hopeful undergoing surgery to remove a cancerous tumor.
"I'd love it if everyone joins me today in saying a special prayer for our @cheffati who went into surgery a couple hours ago," Lakshmi captioned a photo with Ali at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York.
"She was in good spirits when we walked her into OR, and am hoping for a great outcome today. #topchef," she added.
Ali was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, a rare type of bone and soft tissue cancer, in the fall.
The 28-year-old chef said in a post on her own account that she was having a tumor removed from her left shoulder.
"Going in for surgery today to get that tumor out of my left shoulder. Feeling content knowing I have so many well wishers and prayers from all around the world," she wrote.
Ali previously told Bravo's The Daily Dish that her fellow Season 15 contestants and Lakshmi have supported her since her diagnosis.
"All of the contestants have reached out in many ways; we are a tight group. I've had an outpouring of lovely messages and care packages from the production team and the producers. And Padma has been wonderful," she said.


So get the crown.

And now......Break Room Cooking with the Feast of Fiction crew.

That's...............when Game Show Live! returns.

(fade to break)

Madison: Some members of our viewing audience will receive.....

Starbucks Coffee, where the biggest escape from the snow is getting either a blonde espresso or if you live somewhere warmer for the winter, an iced blonde americano, all from Starbucks. Now back to our warmer weather wonder,  Pierre Kelly!

Me: Thank you Madi and welcome back. Was there a bomb threat in Hawaii? We'll examine it later on. 

But don't be a devil on this story.

Turner's TBS has renewed the hit unscripted series' Snoop Dogg Presents The Joker's Wild and Drop the Mic for second seasons. The network re-launched its unscripted business in 2017 with the re-imagined, classic game show reboot and the celebrity-led rap battle competition. They soon emerged as the top two unscripted cable comedies in 2017, reaching an average of 2.5M viewers per episode across TBS's linear, VOD, and digital platforms and have earned over 200 million social and Youtube views to date. Drop the Mic climbed digital audience score rankings week over week, holding the #1 spot three weeks in a row, based on all prime-time comedies that aired new episodes.

"Our relaunch of TBS' unscripted efforts hit the ground running with the series premieres of Snoop Dogg Presents The Joker's Wild and Drop The Mic, and we never looked back," said Michael Bloom, senior vice president of unscripted and specials for TBS and TNT. "And Season 2 is going to be filled with next-level celebrity beef under the guidance of Method and Hailey, and much, much higher stakes courtesy of some extra Snoop-a-fied gaming led by the Dogg himself."

Snoop Dogg, who counted The Joker's Wild as his favorite game show growing up, hosts the TBS version, Snoop Dogg Presents The Joker's Wild, set in his very own casino that includes an oversized slot machine, giant dice and playing cards. Snoop-a-fied questions and pop culture knowledge rule the floor with all the action controlled by the one and only Snoop D-O Double G. Snoop Dogg Presents The Joker's Wild is produced by Sony Pictures Television, in association with Turner's Studio T. Snoop Dogg serves as executive producer, along with two-time Emmy(R) winner, Super Bowl Champion and Good Morning, America co-host Michael Strahan. Also executive-producing are Vincent Rubino, Constance Schwartz-Morini for SMAC Entertainment and Ted Chung for Merry Jane.

Drop the Mic is based on the enormously popular segment from the Emmy(R) winning and viral hit The Late Late Show with James Corden. The TBS series is hosted by Method Man and Hailey Baldwin and pits celebrities from the worlds of entertainment, music, sports and pop culture to face off against each other in a rap battle royale packed with lyrically creative genius and "I can't believe they just said that" moments. At the end of each head-to-head battle, the studio audience votes to determine the winner. Drop the Mic is produced by CBS Television Studios and Fulwell 73 Productions. James Corden, Ben Winston and Jensen Karp serve as executive producers, with Joanna Gallagher as co-executive producer.

Both series will return in the Spring of 2018.

Looks like you missed a spot.

Nickelodeon’s Double Dare was probably the slipperiest, sloppiest, and slimiest game show in TV history, an iconic piece of the network’s identity that showed a generation of kids and families how much fun it can be to put on a jump suit, answer some trivia questions, and just dive headfirst into a big, snot-filled nose or whatever. Now, though, Nickelodeon has announced a new game show that is essentially a rejection of everything Double Dare and Nickelodeon itself once stood for. In other words, as horrifying as it sounds, it’s literally a show about staying clean.

Titled Keep It Spotless, the show will be hosted by difficult-to-see wrestling man John Cena, and a press release says it’ll be about “kids competing in a variety of physical and paint-filled challenges” where the goal is to not touch any paint. At the end of each round, some kind of machine will scan each kid and scientifically determine how much paint got on them, with the winners being the ones who stayed the cleanest. Clearly, “PC culture” has finally gone way too far.

In addition to hosting Keep It Spotless (which will premiere later this year, Cena will also appear on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as a bad guy named Baron Draxum, and he’ll host the 2018 Kids’ Choice Awards in March.

File this under......Yawn.

What does one have to do to get a two-year renewal for their syndicated game show? Funny You Should Ask. 

Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios today handed just such an order to its daily series hosted by Jon Kelley. The move will keep the show on the syndie airwaves until at least the 2020-21 season, which will be its fourth. By then, the series will have produced 520 episodes.

“Funny You Should Ask is growing rapidly in all key metrics,” Allen said. “This comedy game show is perfectly positioned for long-term success.”

Executive produced by Scott Satin, the half-hour Funny You Should Ask features a panel of professional stand-up comics who interact with contestants for cash and prizes. The stakes increase in every episode as the game progresses. The strip is cleared in 93% of the country including the top three markets: New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.

Because a very cheap program can be a hit. Moving on.....

Time for a Gamestop Game Break. It's an impossible question!!!!!

24% of Bartenders have had to do this for a customer- What is it?

Put your thinking skills to good use after a Google Play music interlude as our own Insta-bombshell Cindy Melissa Boisvert tackles.......ZELDA!!!!!!

So......24% of bartenders had to do this for customers. The answer: Take away their keys. Unless you want to call for a bus somewhere. 

Now we continue Joeykat January.

hidden somewhere between the back door of the offices/studio and the 2nd studio door on the far left is a place where no man should go all. Come with the hallway........of horrors!

Behold. The hallway of horrors. A place of rats.....mice......spiders.......ghosts.....and................this.

The $1000 Bee. A spelling bee that was on the Black Family Channel. A knock off of BET, TV One and Centric in know. The first game involves spelling as many words as possible in a short time frame. Then another lightning race, but with 2 players in a buzzer to buzzer showdown. Next up, the Bee Scramble round and this round calls for torture. While the players use refrigerator magnet letters to scramble up to 3 words, the annoying theme stuck in your head is playing. Does that add up to excitement?


Oh, and to give it a "reality" aspect, you must use one of the words in a 3 judges. Did they come from an elementary school for this? Survivor went on to the story round in which a player had to use all 5 make up a story the writers came up with. Since it was a tournament format, the grand prize was.........................$1000. Faint yay.  BTW, the host was........and don't think about goggling it..................Sinatra Onieyewacki.


Aah, gotta run!

(runs back to newsdesk)

Man, that was close.

That's it for this week. Today's consolation prize is a gucci bag. Don't make me say Gucci gang one more time.......or a million times for that matter.
