The husband of Si model and host Chrissy Tiegen and the man who accomplished a feat this past Monday, John Legend is joining "The Voice" in the rotating chair replacing Jennifer Hudson. Pretty interesting. 

Legend, who achieved EGOT status this past weekend after winning an Emmy as a producer for Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, will appear on the show’s upcoming spring cycle, joining returning coaches Kelly Clarkson, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, and host Carson Daly. He replaces Jennifer Hudson, who serves as coach on Season 15, which premieres Sept. 24.
“John Legend is a one-of-a-kind musician and producer with remarkable skills that are beyond measure,” said Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative and Reality Group, NBC Entertainment. “His multi-dimensional career and incredible talents provide a repertoire that will excite and inspire our artists. This coaching panel is sure to ignite season 16.”
Legend won an Oscar in 2015 for his original song “Glory” (co-written by Common) from the movie Selma; won a Tony Award in 2017 as producer of August Wilson’sJitney, which won for Best Revival of a Play; and has won 10 Grammy Awards. Legend has released five studio albums and began his impressive Grammy run in 2006 when he won Best New Artist for his debut release “Get Lifted,” which captured Best R&B Album. “Get Lifted,” along with each of his next three albums – “Once Again,” “Evolver” and “Love in the Future” – reached the Top 5 in album sales on the Billboard charts and achieved gold status.
As a film producer, Legend worked on 2016’s La La Land, in which he also appeared. In addition, Legend has acted in several TV and film productions, including Underground, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Soul Men.

Oh and sticking with The Voice.....

Four-time Emmy Award-winning hit musical competition series "The Voice" will debut its first-ever, 10-part "Comeback Stage" companion series in its upcoming 15th season, which premieres Monday, Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
Chart-topping country music star and acclaimed singer, songwriter and performer Kelsea Ballerini will serve as the companion series' "fifth coach" and mentor six deserving comeback artists who auditioned for coaches Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton during the Blind Auditions but did not make a team. These six Comeback Artists will compete for a chance to re-enter "The Voice" competition and earn a spot in the Top 13 live shows in November.
During the series, Grammy Award nominee Kelsea Ballerini will pair the six Comeback Artists into three Battle Pairings, coaching each artist on an individual song. These artists will go head to head in a Battle Round, and Ballerini will determine the winner of each Battle Round.
Then, in the next phase of the series, the three Battle Round winners will move forward to the Comeback Stage Finals, each performing a final song in the series. Based on these performances, Ballerini will identify the final two artists who will move on to the final phase of the series and perform live for America's vote.

You think This is Not A Game? Well....

Wednesday evening, TBS will launch a new live mobile game from the team at the comedy show "Full Frontal With Samantha Bee." The game, called "This Is Not A Game, The Game," will look familiar to fans of HQ Trivia, the app that popularized the interactive mobile game show format.
Each day there will be 10 questions -- some easy, some hard, some just silly -- and at the end of the game, everyone who answered all of them correctly will split a cash prize.
Of course, coming from a comedy show, it also needs to be funny and fun.
"The humor is really similar to what you would get on the show. The tone is similar, but the execution is totally different, and that was a really interesting learning curve for us," Bee says, speaking to reporters at an app preview at the Helen Mills Theater.
But while it is a game, the idea came from a field piece that aired on the show last year. In the segment, the show tried to help a fledgling local newspaper by "gamifying" the subscription, offering scratch-off tickets to people who subscribed. It was a joke, but it stuck with the "Full Frontal" team.
"After the field piece it occurred to us, could we gamify the midterms?" Bee says. "Could we apply those principles, and incentivize people to do things they didn't want to do, like voting? Is it possible? Is it legal? Could it be fun?"
As a result, "This Is Not A Game, The Game" seeks to do just that, awarding extra live for registering to vote, or finding your polling place.
Bee says the game won't be making any endorsements or try to push viewers to any particular party or candidate, but rather will generally attempt to get people informed about the elections. The game will also adapt to current events and news, with new challenges or questions being added in to keep people engaged. On Thursdays, for example, it might call back to Wednesday evening's show, while Friday may be a current events day. They are already planning something for National Voter Registration Day on September 25.
Bee says: "Obviously, we will terrorize people with the game on Halloween."
Ultimately, if the game is deemed a success, Bee suggests that it could continue in some capacity beyond the midterms, but for now the focus remains on making people laugh, and keeping people engaged. "If you accidentally learn something, and we accidentally cause people to engage with something that is your technical civic duty, then good for us," she quips..

The 10th anniversary season of CBS Daytime Emmy Award-winning game show LET'S MAKE A DEAL kicks off Monday, Sept. 17 (check local listings) on the CBS Television Network with a jam-packed week of big surprises. LET'S MAKE A DEAL is hosted by Daytime Emmy Award-winning game show host Wayne Brady.
LET'S MAKE A DEAL returns with fan-favorite "Zonk Redemption" which gets super-sized from one episode to a week-long event as a thank you to the series' devoted audience. The exciting week of episodes offers formerly "zonked" traders from the show's past nine seasons the opportunity to redeem themselves. Each of these former contestants will be in the audience for the entire week and have the chance to leave a big winner or get zonked yet again. The excitement is multiplied by the possibility of uncovering one of Wayne's coveted "golden tickets," which gives unsuspecting contestants throughout the week a shot at ultimate redemption and guarantees $100,000 to one lucky winner - the single largest dollar amount given away in the history of the series!
On Monday, Sept. 17, Wayne will give away the first golden ticket, and model Tiffany introduces her new baby, Carter, to her LET'S MAKE A DEAL family. On Tuesday, Wayne officiates a surprise wedding for an engaged couple in the audience. Then, on Wednesday, Emmy Award-winning television personality RuPaul drops by to assist Wayne in making a deal. On Thursday, Wayne invites a contestant to play this season's new game, Decade of Deals, showcasing memorable photos from the past nine seasons. The week builds to an exciting conclusion on Friday when the newest Zonk mascot, "Zonkaroo," hatches and the $100,000 winner is revealed!

Remember when Les Moones left as CEO of CBS? Well, we have a follow along on his wife Julie Chen as of this week.

Julie Chen is stepping down from "The Talk" on CBS, one week after her husband Les Moonves left the CBS Corporation under pressure.
Chen's decision is effective immediately, according to two sources close to her.
She will address the decision through a videotaped message to viewers on Tuesday's episode.
"She has decided that her main focus needs to be clearing her husband's name from accusations made 25-30 years ago and tending to her son," one of the sources said.
The sources said she will continue to host the CBS reality show "Big Brother."
A CBS spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment Monday night.
When Moonves, the powerful chairman and CEO of CBS, was accused of sexual misconduct in the pages of The New Yorker in late July, Chen publicly supported her husband and said she would only issue one statement on the topic. 

We at game Show Live! will keep you posted.

Now we go to a Gamestop Game Break. Look at this screenshot of a 1984 PYL episode with 3 answers. 

Ready to hear the question? I do. What former president wrote a book titled "Profiles In Courage?" 

Give it some thought after a Google Play music interlude because our Remote Control redhead Christa Nannos is about to start fantasy dating in.......Super Single.

Alrighty then.....let's see the answer.

The book focuses intensely on mid-19th century antebellum America and the efforts of Senators to delay the Civil WarProfiles was widely celebrated and became a best seller.

And now to review a newer book out in the stores is the announcer in your head, our Match Game mistress of impressionism, Madison Brunolehler. 

Now it's time to find out......

How Dumb Are You?

It's where we take the worst and stupidest miscastings in all of recent game show history. Today, Millionaire tackles the worst school subject to us all.............Math.

Did she need a calculator on her phone to whip it out for help? That's how dumb she was.

That's it for this week. Today's consolation prize is a copy of Mortal Kombat. The greatest video game movie of all time. Of all time.
