Livewire! 2/2

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

Livewire! Your news.......with sass. Presented by that sassy cheerleader you had at your 10-year class reunion. 

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

Me: Thank you Madi2theMax, welcome to Livewire! Once again, the groundhog predicts 6 more weeks of winter, but I am not a meterologist for some local TV station, I just give you the news. No repeating. So let's pop out of our shells and........ let's.................get wired!

Mastering Your Mind

Wanna know why Bill Wright created the UK quiz classic Mastermind? Well, he was a Prisoner of War in WWII and the inspiration to ESPN's 2-Minute Drill with Kenny Mayne as host.

Now we check the Game Show Live! bulletin board.

If you're a regular whizz at TV game shows, why not put your money where your mouth is and try your luck for real.
A brand new BBC quiz show is being launched and makers are on the hunt for contestants to take part.
Letterbox will be presented by former Bake Off host Mel Giedroyc, who will be going it alone without on screen partner Sue Perkins.
And the good news is you will have safety in numbers as producers are looking for pairs to get involved.
The idea behind the show is for teams of two to go up against others to crack a series of passwords in an attempt to open a letterbox and take home up to £2,500 in cash.
You'd need to be available to film in London in February, but expenses will be paid, and the final call for applications has just gone out.
Go on Glasgow, give it a go!
Find out more here.

Moving on to Take a Number, our new segment. The Number is.... in Chrissy Teigen being 5 months pregnant. 
The 32-year-old model and "Lip Sync Battle" co-host discussed her second pregnancy on Tuesday's episode of "The Tonight Show" starring Jimmy Fallon after confirming she's expecting a son with husband John Legend.
"I got a little baby boy!" she told host Jimmy Fallon with a smile.
Teigen asked Fallon to guess how far along she is after telling the late-night host how "everybody keeps touching [her] belly and saying, 'Any day now!'"
"I'd say you're about five months," Fallon guessed.
"That's great! That is a really great guess. He got it!" Teigen responded. "I just had to say it because everyone thinks I'm due tomorrow. I'm like, 'Nope. Just second baby.'"
Teigen announced her second pregnancy in November, and confirmed she's expecting a son in an Instagram post Sunday after the Grammy Awards.
She and Legend already share 21-month-old daughter Luna.


Remember Darryl Sabara from "America's Most Talented Kids" on Pax? Well......
Meghan Trainor says her fiance Daryl Sabara orchestrated the "perfect" proposal.
The 24-year-old singer and "The Four" panelist shared details about her engagement to the 25-year-old actor while appearing on Wednesday's episode of "The Tonight Show" starring Jimmy Fallon.
"He took me for my birthday to Palm Springs to this zoo that had incredible Christmas lights, which he knows I'm obsessed with," Trainor told host Jimmy Fallon.
"I was like, 'You killed it! Great birthday. Let's do this every year,' and then I tried to Snapchat and he was like, 'Can you just put that away for one second?' I was like, 'Uh oh,'" she recalled. "I was like, screaming. My whole family was there."
"I blacked out," the star jokingly added. "He got down, I remember that. I was like, 'It's happening!'"
Trainor announced her engagement in December by sharing a video of Sabara's proposal on Instagram.
"I SAID YESSSS!!!! For my 24th birthday, the love of my life @darylsabara made all of my dreams come true. He proposed to me under a tunnel of beautiful Christmas lights and surprised me with my family and friends," the singer wrote at the time.
Trainor and Sabara, who is known for playing Juni Cortez in the "Spy Kids" movies, have been dating since July 2016.


It's time for Chris Stuckmann's Stuck @ The Movies. And today......

Snoop Dogg did something this offseason: Twitch streaming. Watch the clip.

Even though the whole stream was wacky and hilarious, I hope Ben Gleib does the same thing. Maybe Sonya Belousova might join in for a request stream like Player Piano did back then.........

I'd like to know.....

Why is this news? 

4 Years....4 Real?

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are celebrating four years of marriage.

"The Bachelor" couple celebrated their wedding anniversary on Friday amid the Season 17 winner's second pregnancy.
Lowe marked the occasion by sharing a photo with his 1.1 million Instagram followers. The picture shows him taking off Giudici's garter with his teeth at their wedding.
"Celebrating 4 years of marriage with my sidekick Hottie McSpicy Pants today! Life is better with you attached to my hip @catherinegiudici," he wrote.
Giudici also dedicated a post to Lowe on her own account.
"Goodness gracious, I love this man," she gushed. "Happy Anniversary sweets!"

Quiz Gauntlet

This week......

Slumdog Squares......

HQ cuts its ties.......sorta.......

And HQ clones something.   All this and.....

Why Karma is a...........


Madison Brunoehler: From coast to coast..............

And Across America.....and the world.........this is..............

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

Me: Thank you Madi2TheMax and this of course is  Game show Live! As live as it gets, as live as it happens and as live whenever you feel like it. Let's get into it with......

 The Opening Toss-Up story.   

Can you take Padma Lakshmi to block? Sure you can.

Indian on-demand service and affiliate pay TV network Star MAA are working up a local version of classic CBS gameshow format Hollywood Squares.

Hollywood_SquaresThe series is hitting the localmarket through boutique content house Morris Street Advisors, which acquired the format from distributor CBS Studios International.

The Indian version, shot in the Telugu language and which will be known as Tollywood Squares, debuts locally on January 27. It will run to 26 episodes.

The news is a boon for Morris Street, which recently saw another US client, Lionsgate, end their relationship ahead of the launch of Lionsgate India.

Asian VOD service Viu, meanwhile, is hungry for international formats. In December, it commissioned an adventure reality series, I Can You Can, from BBC Worldwide India.

GroupM-owned Motion Content Group is also attached to the project.

The Hollywood Squares format dates back to 1965 and is based on the game of Tic-tac-toe. It features a 3×3 vertical stack board of open-faced cubes, each of which a celebrity facing contestants occupies.

The stars answer questions from a host and the contestants have to decide if they are telling the truth. The player that gains squares in the right pattern wins the contest.

US broadcaster CBS has often delved into its classic TV catalogue as an option for international networks. It 2015, it sold rights to scripted series I Love Lucy to MTG’s Latvian broadcast arm in one recent example.

“At Viu, our constant focus is to bring refreshing narratives and exciting new formats that appeal to the millennials,” said Vishal Maheshwari, country head of Viu India. “Our insights gave us the belief that a format like this, which is iconic in its own right globally, would be a timely new addition to our bouquet of differentiated content.”

Rohit Tiwari CEO, Morris Street Advisors, said: “This is a milestone moment for Morris Street Advisors. As a leading provider of entertainment content, we are now placing more focus on producing popular programming that captivates Indian viewers.”

Roxanne Pompa, VP of international formats at CBS Studios International, said: “Hollywood Squares has had success in many countries around the world, and we’re convinced it will appeal to viewers in India. We are thrilled to be working with Morris Street Advisors to bring this iconic game show format to Indian audiences.”

Going through a winter storm of sorts, here's the Yay & Yawn of December/January.

The Yay: The Joker's Wild gets another season.......with Snoop. Smokin'!

The Yawn: This.

Word of advice: Arizona Tea is much cheaper than toothpaste. You heard me?

After this commercial word, HQ pays cheap people. 

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

(fade to break)

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

Starbucks Coffee, because eveyrbody gets Pike Place or decaf, or better yet a frappuchino. Get one from Starbucks. There's even cookies and sandwiches, too. Now back to our sandwich maker, Pierre Kelly!

Me: Thank you Madi and welcome back. Why is Post Malone driving an Armed Humvee in Vegas? Find out why later. 

Here's some HQ news for you. 

The HQties have spoken, and creators Rus Yusupov & Colin Kroll have listened. 

As Just Jared reported on Friday, HQ Trivia has made two major rule changes, modifying how the cash prizes and the extra lives work.

According to Just Jared, the live quiz game will now allow anyone and everyone to cash out their winnings, no matter how much money they’ve earned playing the app. As HQ Trivia announced on Twitter on Friday, “It's payday, baby! We've removed the minimum balance required to cash out your HQ winnings. Put that money in the bank today!”

Before this new rule existed, players could only cash out if they had a balance of $20 or more in their banks, and winnings would be forfeited if they were not claimed within 90 days. As the HQ Trivia terms of service put it,

“You will need a minimum Prize balance of $20 in your account to cash-out via PayPal, a third party service.”


“The winner must cash-out the Prize within 90 days after the date of notification of such Prize. A Contest winner's failure to cash-out the Prize within the specified 90 days will be considered such Contest winner's forfeiture of the Prize and Sponsor may, at its option and sole discretion, choose not to award the Prize at all. If an entrant is found to be ineligible, Sponsor may, at its option and sole discretion, choose not to award the Prize at all.”

And as for the second brand new HQ Trivia rule? Players now have more freedom when it comes to using their extra lives. You know how the game would make you spend your extra life if you missed a question, whether you liked it or not? Well, from now on, you can decide if you actually want to use an extra life, or if you'd rather save it for later. So, if and when you earn some bonus lives, don't worry: You can do whatever you want with 'em.

No fear for this.....

"Fear Factor" returns with a new season of physical and psychological challenges that will push contestants to their limits like never before. The news comes on the heels of MTV's second consecutive quarter of YoY ratings growth - the best streak in six years. Global superstar Ludacris returns to host and executive produce. The first ten, one-hour episodes will debut on Sunday, February 25th at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT with the remaining ten episodes slated for this summer. Internationally, the new season will begin airing in March.

Dubbed the "season from hell," contestants must conquer insane challenges like escaping from a haunted house and freeing themselves from a buried coffin. Team pairings will consist of families, students, twins and ex's who'll tackle a "date from hell." Only the bravest (and craziest) will walk away with the $50K cash prize and "Fear Factor" bragging rights.

Keep up to date with all things "Fear Factor" with @FearFactor on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Anthony Carbone, Kevin Wehrenberg, Rob Smith and Robin Feinberg serve as Executive Producers for Endemol Shine North America. Christopher "Ludacris" Bridges also serves as Executive Producer. Nina L. Diaz, Pamela Post and Tim Palazzola are Executive Producers for MTV.

Four Real? 

A former employee has accused “The Four” judge Charlie Walk of sexual misconduct.

Tristan Cooperman said Walk, the Republic Records Group president, “made me feel sick to my stomach almost every day” when she worked for him at a Sony division years ago.

Walk told “Entertainment Tonight” the allegation was from more than a decade ago and was “false.” He said he has “consistently been a supporter of the women’s movement.”

Neither Walk nor Cooperman immediately responded to HuffPost’s requests for comment.

The accusation, Deadline pointed out, emerges at a critical time for “The Four,” the singing talent show on Fox that premiered Jan. 4. The grand prize is a recording contract with Republic, which Walk runs. The show began its final round of taping this week, Deadline said.

“We have only recently learned of these past allegations regarding Mr. Walk,” Fox said in a statement. “We are currently reviewing this matter and are committed to fostering a safe environment on all of our shows.”

A spokesperson for Republic’s parent organization, Universal Music Group, told “Entertainment Tonight”: “While it appears this blog post relates to the period prior to Mr. Walk’s appointment to his position at Republic Records, we take the allegations very seriously and intend to conduct a full and complete review of this matter.”

And finally, a classic video game legend becomes a game show. 

Can this be true?

Pong—the groundbreaking electronic table tennis game that’s been known to remain absolutely riveting for upwards of seven minutes at a time—is about to get the TV game show treatment. Not just any Pong, though; Variety reports that the famously minimalist Atari title is being spruced up with the addition of big ol’ stacks of money, in the form of Million Dollar Pong.

It’s not clear which network the show—produced by prolific reality TV creator Scott Sternberg—will land at. More importantly, though, we also have no idea what its take on Pong will look or feel like. Will it be as visually stimulating as watching a pair of ’70s teenagers twiddling their knobs and occasionally loudly swearing? Or will it embrace all the grandeur that the name Million Dollar Pong implies, and hot-glue a couple of diamonds onto the paddles, too? We’ll just have to wait and see how this one bounces out.

Time for a Gamestop Game break. Solve this Scrabble word from 1987. 

Hint: She wasn't suited for her most famous role. 

Think on it after a Google Play music interlude from Postmodern Jukebox's own Aubrey Logan and a spin on this classic.

Now we spin off to the answer: 

As in Lady know, the lady who rode naked through the streets before streaking was ever a thing in the seventies. She should've worn clothes next time. 

And we have reached the End of Joeykat January. 

HQ is fast becoming a phenomenon. Survivors answer questions to reach a cash prize. One incorrect answer.........and you are toast. Burnt toast. with butter. And hot tea. But there are ripoffs that are duplicated. Or are they ? Let's investigate!!!!

From Charleston, South Carolina, a city in which the Civil War first got started comes The Q. Also known as The Question, they give out free hints to help you get a free pass towards the money.....or elimination. And all of this takes place in a secret bunker. I wonder where it is........

But out of its way also comes Cash Show. Not only can you answer non-prize questions correctly, but you'll answer prize questions.....for pocket change. And there's a take 1 wrong away for a 50/50 chance at which is right. Which ripoff is next?           We don't know.

That's it for this week. Today's consolation prize is a supply of Tide Pods. Don't eat that. Seriously, don't eat that! 

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.

Breaking News

VO: We interrupt what you're doing right now for a late-breaking blog............thing.

...with the master of Everything buzz.....and  chief classic Tv correspondent, Pierre Kelly!

Me: Welcome to @ The Buzzr. Way before Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me, Goodson-Todman wanted a predecessor to it. I'll tell you why after this one.

It was one of the closest Buzzr Beater polls on whch Supermarket Sweep announver and by was Johnny Gilbert. Nice job everyone......but is it really news to me? Let's find out now.

(song stops)

It's News To Me was a precursor to Liar's Club and somewhat a derivative of What's My Line?

Each typical episode contains two contestant rounds, followed by a newsmaker round, and occasionally followed by an additional contestant round.

Each round was a bluffing game where contestants attempted to determine if answers that was given by one of the panelists was true or false.
The contestant was staked to $20 (later $30) at the beginning of the game. The contestant and panelists were then shown an item or items including props, drawings, photographs, or motion picture/newsreel footage. Sometimes a dramatic performance (example: Goodson-Todman staffer Frank Wayne appears giving part of a speech) was presented. A panelist chosen by the emcee would then supply a story that would tie the item to a news event, past or present. The contestant would then decide if the panelist's story was true or false. The contestant earned $5 (later $10) for a correct decision and $5 (later $10) was deducted for an incorrect decision. Play continued until all four panelists had played and the contestant kept whatever money that was earned at the end.

Then came the newsmaker round.

In this round, eyewitnesses or participants involved with news events in the past or present would play a game similar to I've Got a Secret. The panelists would question the guest to determine the identity of the news event. If the panel failed to identify the event within two minutes, the newsmaker would receive $100. If the panel identified the news event, the guest received $50.

John Charles Daly and Walter Cronkite were hosts in the series.

But the Buzzr beater question figures you out by guessing which one in 2 weeks from now.

That should end it.  anything you question or comment goes to me on social media or email and we'll explain. We will see you all @ The.....................
