Livewire! 7/6

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

Livewire! Your news.......with sass. Presented by Dollar Tree. Because if they catch you playing with fireworks in the store, you will be ejected like the button on your old VCR. 

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

Me: Thank you Madi2theMax, welcome to Livewire! How many of you are seeing the world cup? Well, I wish the USA would return in 2022, but we got to be on the pitch to deliver some good old news stories. Whistle has been blown, so let's.................get wired!

Katherine McPhee may have been in Smash, but she is about to make a marriage to David Foster a smash real soon. 

The singer and actress' representative confirmed to People that Katharine and David are engaged. 

Katharine, 34, posted a screenshot July 4 on Instagram of a text message between Just Jared founder Jared Eng and herself, writing that 68-year-old David popped the question during their vacation to Italy, which the couple had documented on social media earlier this week. 

"He did it at the top of this mountain in Anacapri," Katharine apparently told Jared. "Totally dark, only stars. Thankfully he didn't push me off the cliff. He said it was one or the other. And in the end he spared me." 

Jared seemed thrilled for his pal, gushing about how David had done "a mighty fine job" with Katharine's engagement ring being it's "beautiful and classic." 

The couple first sparked romance rumors in May 2017 when they were spotted getting cozy in Malibu. 

David's daughter Erin later prompted even more speculation when she referred to her dad and Katharine as "my parents" on social media in September. 

Months later, Katharine addressed all the chatter about her alleged romance in Health magazine's December issue. 

"I'm pretty single. I had a relationship with [Scorpion co-star Elyes Gabel] that was almost two years," Katharine said. "But I haven't had anything super serious since." 

She added at the time, "[David and I are] very close friends, and we've been friends for a long time... I'm really, really fond of him and I think he's an incredible person. I've known him since I was 21 years old, you know? He produced my first single. So he's been really good to me. People can say whatever they want." 


Yvette Nicole Brown was hoping to replace Chris Hardwick in the "Talking Dead," but she had other plans.

Brown, who will moderate the Walking Dead panel at Comic-Con later this month — a job long held by Hardwick — tweeted on Wednesday that she is merely “filling in for a friend” at the annual fan convention. Hardwick, of course, is being replaced in the wake of sexual assault allegations leveled against him in June by ex-girlfriend Chloe Dykstra — allegations he has since denied.
Though Brown did not specifically name Hardwick in her tweet, her post also seemed to address growing speculation that she will take over Hardwick’s role as host of Talking Dead, AMC’s Walking Dead aftershow on which she has appeared multiple times.
Following Dykstra’s accusations against Hardwick, AMC has pulled Talking With Chris Hardwick from the schedule indefinitely. He was also slated to moderate Doctor Who‘s panel at Comic-Con, but a replacement host for that event has yet to be announced

“The Bachelorette” was all about romance Monday night — and promoting the state of Virginia. However, not many viewers were up for the trip to the Old Dominion, even though VA’s official slogan is “Virginia is for lovers.”  If fans were looking for somewhere a little more “traditionally” amorous, well, sorry.
Becca Kufrin and her boys headed to Richmond on the state tourism board’s dime and were probably a little too into the history-packed field trip, ’cause fans took to Twitter to call BS.
“No offense to the state of Virginia, but by week 6 of the Bachelorette these guys were definitely expecting to be in Italy,” one user tweeted. “This is the most low budget season I’ve seen. Only ONE randomly placed hot tub and no yachts yet!!!”
“I still can’t get over the fact that ABC took the bachelorette crew to freaking Richmond, Virginia,” another wrote.
Hey, now!
OK, it probably didn’t help that this installment of the ABC dating series opened with a four-minute pitch for why Virginia is the best place ever to fall in love. Yeah, the pitch for the Commonwealth was pretty heavy-handed. And then Leo also said this, “Just like Virginia birthed the nation, I hope that it births a relationship that really lasts with Becca.”

The series premiere of TKO: TOTAL KNOCK OUT hosted by comedian Kevin Hart will debut at a new special time, 9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT on Wednesday, July 11, on the CBS Television Network. Wednesday's episode of BIG BROTHER will air at 8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT. The time change applies to July 11 only.

On to a new segment on Livewire! entitled.....

Think About this. This is where we ask you questions taken from local libraries, universities, pub quizzes and any book store in america and let your brain gets a little tougher. So think hard......and even harder. 

Here is your question:
According to the film website Rotten Tomatotes, what was considered the worst children's animated film of all time and had a score of only 8%? 

While you think on it, Ms. Vasko, a little music please......

Time's up. The question again: According to the film website Rotten Tomatotes, what was considered the worst children's animated film of all time and had a score of only 8%?

A: The Magic Roundabout or Doogal. 

According to William H. MacyHarvey Weinstein saw the film and decided to do an American version. On 24 February 2006, the film was released in the United States as Doogal, and was produced by The Weinstein Company. In the United States version, where audiences aren't as familiar with the series, the majority of original United Kingdom voices have been dubbed over by celebrities more familiar to the United States, such as Chevy Chase (Train), Jimmy Fallon (Dylan), Whoopi Goldberg (Ermintrude), William H. Macy (Brian), Kevin Smith (Elk) and Jon Stewart (Zeebad). Daniel Tay plays the titular character in the United States dub.
Only two original voices remained those of Kylie Minogue and Ian McKellen, Minogue, however, re-voiced her own lines with an American accent. The United States version also features Daniel Tay (Doogal), Bill Hader (Sam) and Judi Dench (narrator). Writer Butch Hartman (The Fairly OddParents) rewrote the dialogue in the film to make it more appealing to American audiences, but in the end, most of his rewrites were discarded, instead, the final version had numerous references and flatulence jokes, which weren't in his initial script. Hartman revealed in 2017 that the film was originally supposed to include a live-action frame story similar to The Princess Bride but was scrapped due to budget costs.[

According to the consensus: "Overloaded with pop culture references, but lacking in compelling characters and plot, Doogal is too simple-minded even for the kiddies";[7] the website ranked it the 82nd worst reviewed movie of the 2000s.[8]It has a score of 23 out of 100 ("generally unfavorable") on Metacritic, and an F rating from Entertainment Weekly writing that "very young children should be angry... where is it written that 4-year-olds don't deserve a good story, decent characters, and a modicum of coherence?". It was placed #5 on Ebert & Roeper's Worst of 2006. Michael Phillip of the Chicago Tribunedescribed the film as "Eighty-five minutes you'll never get back."

Think about that. 

The Spice Girls are finally getting back together!
The 43-year-old singer and "America's Got Talent" judge, born Melanie Brown, confirmed on Wednesday's episode of "Today" that the British girl group will be getting back together.
"I'm the only one that keeps on saying, 'We're gonna be performing,' which we are gonna be performing," she told host Hoda Kotb. "Finally they got it together."
Mel B dismissed bandmate Victoria Beckham's comments about how the group won't be reuniting.
"She's always bloody saying that. Stop it! We are touring!," she said. "Yes, we are going to be doing performances together, for sure."

Dare is a Demand Side

One of YouTube’s biggest stars has returned to the video site’s paywalled subscription platform. Liza Koshy, who recently surpassed 15 million subscribers on her personal channel, is the star of Liza On Demanda comedy series now available for YouTube Premium subscribers.
The attitude of Koshy’s character in Liza On Demand is laid out in the show’s first scene, during her argument with a bratty Uber customer. “I am ‘gig economy or die’ all day,” Koshy boasts. The series followers her adventures in the world of tasks, where she is joined by friends portrayed by castmates Kimiko Glenn and Travis Coles.
Liza On Demand was announced last year, with digital comedy network Above Average serving as its producer. This is Koshy’s second appearance on YouTube Premium; back when the platform was still known as YouTube Red, Koshy starred in Jingle Ballin’, a 2016 Christmas special that was also produced by Above Average.
The launch of Liza On Demand comes during a busy week for the show’s star. On Monday, the first episode of the rebooted version of the Nickelodeon game show Double Dare premiered, with Koshy serving as its host. That episode arrived just days after Koshy made her first-ever appearance on a late night TV show, in which she chatted about Canada, breakups, and more alongside Late Show host Stephen Colbert.

Nothing says summer like SHARK WEEK and this year the pop culture phenomenon kicks off its 30th anniversary on Sunday, July 22 and continues through Sunday, July 29 on Discovery Channel. Over three decades, the eagerly awaited summer TV event has become the destination for must-watch shark programming, and this year Guy Fieri, host of Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, is embarking on a very different dive experience. SHARK WEEK 2018 will combine the best of science and technology to capture the secret lives of sharks, and find better ways to share the oceans we co-inhabit.
An expert in the culinary world, Guy Fieri has finally met his match when he goes spikes to fins with the ultimate feeding machines of the sea in GUY FIERI'S FEEDING FRENZY. Guy and his son, Hunter, head to the Bahamas to experience local cuisine and explore the waters around these islands, and understand what makes them the perfect all-you-can-eat buffet for a wide variety of shark species.
"Like everyone else, I'm a big time Shark Week fan so to be able to hit the Bahamas with my son, Hunter, and get in on the action was an amazing experience," said Fieri. "Checkin' out some killer local joints and then tryin' not to become a shark's lunch... now that's a good time!"
For thirty years, SHARK WEEK has given viewers extensive insight into the mysterious world of sharks - taking them where cameras have never been before. This year, Discovery will employ new technology, from genetic profiling to miniaturized camera tags, to combine the best of science and technology to capture the fascinating and misunderstood behavior of sharks. In addition, Discovery will leave no shark fan behind, bringing the SHARK WEEK experience to viewers in new and innovative ways through digital and social media platforms, partnerships with nonprofit groups, affiliates, education programs, and more.


FOX has renewed GORDON RAMSAY'S 24 HOURS TO HELL AND BACK, the No. 1 new series of the summer, for a second season.
"Gordon gives 100% in everything he does, and he took on the task of turning these restaurants around wholeheartedly," said Rob Wade, President, Alternative Entertainment and Specials, FOXBroadcasting Company. "He may be these owners' harshest critic, but he's also their biggest champion, because he wants them to succeed. When all is said and done, it's really Gordon's heart that resonates with viewers, and we can't wait to see who he helps save next season."
The debut of GORDON RAMSAY'S 24 HOURS TO HELL AND BACK posted a 1.4/6 in Live +7 ratings, ranking as the summer's No. 1 new series. It has delivered 5.2 million multi-platform viewers, becoming FOX's most-watched summer debut in more than three years and its most-watched unscripted debut since 2013 (excluding NFL lead-out programming). The series' second episode posted a 1.3/6 in L+3 ratings, delivering 4.6 multi-platform viewers. Together with MASTERCHEF, the second episode of 24 HOURS drove FOX to win its 16th consecutive Wednesday night, among entertainment programs.

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

Time to fiddle around with The Quebe Sisters and a fiddle medley. Fiddle with it, won't you?

That's all for now, but remember one thing: Will Animal Planet ever create Whale Week? 

So until next time and all the on playas.

 The Opening Toss-Up story.   

Network Ten has commissioned an Australian version of the quiz show Pointless.
Premiering on TEN and WIN Network soon, Pointless will be co-hosted by Dr Andrew Rochford and comedian and writer Mark Humphries and sees three teams of two contestants each compete for a jackpot by finding the most obscure answers they can across a variety of topics.
The show marks the return of Rochford to TEN, while Humphries joins TEN after recently farewelling the SBS show The Feed. The aim of Pointless is to score as few points as possible. The contestants with the highest scores after each round are eliminated.
Dr Andrew Rochford said; "I'm very lucky to be forming a team with a talent like Mark and genuinely excited to be back at TEN but I'm even more excited about the fact my dressing room has a couch and Mark's doesn't."
Mark Humphries said; "Who said Twitter is a waste of time! After an extensive social media campaign (two tweets) TEN had no choice but to give me the dream role as host of Pointless."
Network Ten chief content officer Beverley McGarvey said: "We are delighted to commission such a successful and entertaining game show as Pointless. This is fantastic entertainment for the whole family, as contestants try to find the most pointless answers. "And we are absolutely thrilled to have Andrew and Mark co-host the show. They are smart, funny, and engaging and will make a brilliant duo."
Produced by Endemol Shine Australia for Network Ten, Pointless has been a standout success since its launch in the UK in 2009. It has been adapted internationally for broadcasters in 11 other territories including Germany, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Italy and Poland.

After this commercial word, Bachelors return to Paradise. That's...............when Game Show Live! returns.

Six talented chefs enter the summer house to square off in the new primetime culinary series, Ultimate Summer Cook-Off, premiering Sunday, August 5th at 8pm ET/PT on Food Network. Whether it's a chef with a restaurant right on the beach, a seafood master, or a chef from Hawaii, each competitor has their own connection to the summer season and their culinary reputations at stake. Host Eddie Jackson challenges the chefs over four episodes, as each competitor must take on two rounds of summer culinary heats that test their skill and creativity. The chef who wins the first challenge in each episode will receive a key advantage during round two, gaining access to a special cooler with high-end ingredients that no other competitor can use, before presenting their creations to a panel of expert judges. Southern and Hungry's Damaris Phillips and Let's Eat's Jamika Pessoa are joined by a roster of special guest judges each week, including Comfort Food Tour's Mark Anderson and Ryan Fey, BBQ blogger Susie Bulloch, Comfort Nation's Lazarus Lynch, Genius Kitchen's Courtney Rada and pitmaster Cameron Treu, to determine which chef exemplifies what summer is all about with their dishes and earns the $25,000 grand prize.
"Summer is synonymous with spending time with family and friends, while gathering around the grill to dig in to some finger-licking BBQ," said Courtney White, General Manager and Executive Vice President, Programming, Food Network and HGTV. "Eddie Jackson is the perfect host to challenge these six chefs in taking their culinary bona fides and placing them on the line, while creating summer dishes that are fun and exhilarating for a chance at walking away with $25,000."

Now to this story:

In the brutal cold of the unforgiving Pacific Northwest wilderness, nine modern-day warriors take on a relentless, 24-day survival challenge based on the ancient laws of the Ninja. In Discovery's all-new series ULTIMATE NINJA CHALLENGE, eight grueling missions created by Jinichi Kawakami, the last known Ninja, will push each warrior's body, mind, and spirit to their breaking points. Those who complete the entire survival challenge will receive a final lesson from the master himself in Iga City, Japan, the legendary home of the Ninja - and prove that they can endure the Ultimate Ninja Challenge. The all-new series premieres Sunday, August 5 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel.
Following in the footsteps of the ancient order, nine individuals each living their own interpretation of the life of a "warrior" will use their unique skills to attempt to survive challenges based on the sacred Kuji principles of the Ninja. These male and female warriors range from martial arts experts, a world-class survivalist, a UFC fighter, a veteran fireman and former military who all want to prove to themselves that they can endure any hardship when they take on the Ultimate Ninja Challenge.
With limited food and water, the warriors endure harsh conditions and challenges that include trekking through a frigid swamp, surviving overnight on an icy glacier, crossing a raging river, escaping imprisonment, and more, all while enduring sleep deprivation and debilitating hunger. Failure to complete any mission will force them to leave the challenge, and only those with the strongest stamina and willpower will make it to Japan for the final challenge. This is not conventional survival - this is the Ultimate Ninja Challenge.
ULTIMATE NINJA CHALLENGE was created by Charlie Foley and developed by Charlie Foley and Vaibhav Bhatt. The series is produced for Discovery Channel by Renegade 83 in association with the Original Content Group. For Renegade 83, David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe, Stephen Rankin and David Burris are executive producers. For Original Content Group, Charlie Foley and Vaibhav Bhatt are executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Joseph Boyle and Michael Gara serve as executive producers and Jessica Mollo is associate producer.

Catch this:

BBC One has signed Paddy McGuinness to present brand new Saturday night gameshow 'Catchpoint', which requires both brains and balls.
The format, co-produced by ITV Studios labels Possessed and 12 Yard, has a simple premise: don't drop the ball.
At the back of the studio is the 'Catch Zone', where ten large screens display possible answers to a quiz question. Above all ten screens are trapdoors, containing balls of various sizes. Contestants have to run to their preferred answer and hit a button to release the ball, which they must catch. However, only the door above the correct answer will open, sending its ball plummeting to the ground. If they're standing in the right place, catching it should be easy - but get it wrong and they'll have to rely on quick reflexes not to let the ball drop.
A variety of rounds will lead up to an exciting finale, when a cash prize will be up for grabs.
"I'm thrilled to be hosting Catchpoint," said Paddy. "It's always exciting being part of a new show, especially one that involves so many fun elements.
"I can't wait to get started! Now where did I put those cricket gloves?"
The Beeb has ordered a series of six half-hour episodes of Catchpoint, set to begin later this year..

Now for a segment where grievances are due......

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

Janet Gillman is up first.

"Why is the Cosby show interrupting the game shows?? He shouldn't even be on TV. Please fix this!!! And get different game shows on, can't do Family Feud anymore."

Ummmm.....GSN must've been punished?

Barbara Duro Largrenne goes up next....

"What is going on, I was watching The Chase today July 3,2018 and in the middle of the game show Bill Cosby show cuts in and continues with his TV sitcom. Bill Cosby of all people his show should not be on, he is a disgusting human being. Someone check out GSN. This is the game show channel."

They must've hacked it or something......

Maybe Lisa Morris Case will solve it for us....

"Every day I watch GSN. Every day I see an advertisement saying "America Says" Comes on at 5pm after family feud. Every day family feud is on from 4pm to 10pm. Im so confused. I really wanna see America Says. Birmingham, AL."

It's actually on at 4 central. Check the guide on your remote for it.  John Hazard goes next.

"Wish you had more of a variety of game shows, like price is right, high rollers, jokers wild, the newlywed game (Bob Eurbanks), the dating game, to name a few."

Yes, but it's Eubanks that you spelled it incorrectly.  Chris Mercer is up.

"When are you guys going to bring back Idiotest? Family Feud sucks and you play it for literally 18 hours a day on your channel."

I wished they did. Idiotest was a good show. Diana Hanson will go next.

"Okay. You have a show coming on called "Carolina and friends" not a game show. Put on the old prices right shows on instead. Take off cash cab. Stupid show. Put things on people will watch."

Yep. Give something GSN used to do back in the day. Finally, sandy Mika campbell.

"I love GSN!! I, too, would like to see some classics come back. Supermarket Sweep, Shop til You Drop, Password, Double Dare, and especially Name That Tune! Cash Cab is a keeper and I like the new America Says. I don't agree with the 5 and a half hour stretch of Family Feud during prime time. The show is sometimes a little more adult-oriented. This is the best time to reach all family members, young and old. Thank you for keeping our families entertained!"

You sure do, Sandy. 

Now for a Gamestop Game break. Have a look at this Body Language puzzle for you to solve. 

Tackle that for a minute after this Google Play Music interlude.

And now, Game Show Live! presents the award-winning Warp Zone Acapella Mass Choir with another one of your favorite geeky classics.

Now to the answer, it was.....

Who was that masked man?

Game Show Live! now presents the 7th Annual .....GSN..........MID-YEAR....MIDTERM REPORT CARD!

Every half year, we report on what GSN did so far in 2018 starting with the Good stuff. 

GSN introduced us all to a vintage saturday Night lineup and Cover Story on Sunday. Trish Suhr also became the mistress of the daily draw and that was it. Now to the failures.....and such. 

Family feud being put on in the afternoon hours until prime time and Divided and Winsanity getting sent to the late night hours. Grading the papers for you all.......

Papers graded! It's.....

It's a C. It needs lesser Feud and more of America Says if it becomes successful. Also bring Idiotest back for gods sake. And get rid of Caroline & Friends while you're at it.

That's it for this week. Today's consolation prize is  a prescription from Walgreens. Because if they refuse to, you might as well take it to Rite Aid. 

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.
