Livewire! 11/21

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

Livewire! Your news.......with sass. Presented by the new James Charles makeup palette. Look cool. Then pretend you're stupid. And now from our Game Show Live! Newsroom, here comes Pierre Kelly!

Me: Thank you Madi2theMax, welcome to Livewire! We're doing back to back days and the office is prepared to close up shop for the Thanksgiving day holiday. Starting on Cyber Monday, we want you to warp speed ahead to the polls for the 2nd annual Game Show Live! honors. Wonder why? It's about you, the fans. So study up on yesterday's blog before I open the floodgates to you. Now let's open up today's Livewire!, so  Let's............get wired!

ABC is switching things up at the top: Channing Dungey is stepping down as the Alphabet network’s entertainment president, after serving in that position for nearly three years.
Karey Burke, the current head of original programming at Freeform, will take over as ABC’s entertainment president, the network announced on Friday. Burke will be responsible for all development, programming and scheduling for ABC’s primetime and late-night lineups, and will report to Dana Walden once the Disney/Fox merger is complete.
“I’m grateful to Channing for her significant contributions and unwavering dedication to the success of ABC over the past 14 years,” Disney CEO Bob Iger said in a statement. “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed having the opportunity to work with and mentor Channing; her curiosity, passion and creativity will ensure she is successful in whatever path she chooses going forward. Over the past four years at Freeform, and throughout her career, Karey has proven herself a gifted leader with a strong track record of developing unique programming. Karey’s attention to, and intimate knowledge of, the audience, and a commitment to quality will be a great addition to the creative team at ABC.”

They will receive the prestigious award at a special reception on Wednesday, January 23, 2019, at the Eden Roc in Miami Beach. The Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Award is presented each year during the annual NATPE Miami Marketplace & Conference, which will take place from January 22 to 24, 2019, at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach, Florida.

Drew Carey and fiancée Dr. Amie Harwick ended their engagement after less than a year, Us Weekly reports.
The two sparked dating speculation last year in June when Carey, 60, shared an Instagram photo with Harwick, 37. "Had an awesome time w [Harwick] watching @kaskade in #Vegas during #EDC week :)" he captioned the photo at the time.
Harwick recently shared a photo of herself going solo to a family wedding in her hometown of Lansdale, Pennsylvania. "It felt so good to reconnect to where I’m from this weekend for a family wedding," she wrote on Instagram. "Embracing fall, changing colors of leaves, gloves and scarves, hot drinks, comfort food, and loved ones."
The last time she shared a photo with Carey was in September at a Rock to Recovery event. Carey, who is less active on social media that Harwick, last shared a photo with Harwick in February.
CNBC's all new "Deal or No Deal" premieres on Wednesday, 12/5/18. Back-to-back new episodes will air at 8 PM and 9 PM ET on Wednesday, 12/5 and Wednesday, 12/12. Beginning Wednesday, 12/19, new episodes of "Deal or No Deal" will air Wednesdays at 9 PM ET/PT.

All programming subject to change.

With the Thanksgiving holiday coming up, The Dramatic Questioners share something to be thankful for. Enjoy.

No, Seriously, who was that masked singer?

Fox has released a nearly full performance from The Masked Singer, and whether it gets your wheels turning may foretell your enjoyment of this upcoming game show competition series.
Based on an international format and (of course) hosted by Nick Cannon, The Masked Singer (premiering Wednesday, Jan. 2) features singing celebrities shrouded from head to toe in an elaborate costume, complete with full face mask to conceal his or her identity. With each performance, the host, panelists, audience, viewers and even the other contestants are left guessing who is singing behind the mask.
The Season 1 roster of masked singers ranges from “Grammy Award winners to legendary athletes, and everything in between,” says Fox — and the singers may attempt to throw the crowd off of their scent, while keen observers might pick up on tiny clues buried throughout the show. One singer will be eliminated each week, ultimately revealing his or her true identity.

What, you wanna see it? Alright fine. Roll it Sinema!

After a bit of a minor ligament injury and some 4-day physical therapy, we finally bring back.....

The 60-second Dance scoop with our senior dance correspondent Kristyn Burtt. Let's dance!!!!!

Now for our recurring segment......

Country singer (and season 10 America’s Got Talent finalist) Benton Blount was four shows into a seven-show run opening for ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons when he was reportedly kicked off the tour. His removal followed his posting of a photo of himself wearing a MAGA hat and an “I Voted” sticker and holding a Chick-Fil-A sandwich on Facebook with the caption “Someone reading this just got offended multiple times. My work here is done! #Vote,” which also apparently led to him being banned from Facebook for 24 hours. Blount told The Greenville News that he was notified by Gibbons’ management upon arriving to the venue on Thursday that he was removed from the tour, and that the reason for his temporary Facebook ban was that his post “did not meet community standards.”
Upon returning to Facebook, he posted a video explaining the situation, and also wrote: “I was banned from Facebook (for 24 hours) and now I’ve just been banned from my opening spot on the Billy Gibbons tour. But suppression of Conservative opinion doesn’t happen and it doesn’t affect your career!” You can view the video below.
Today, he posted a longer statement, which reads:
I have let it ride for a few days because I wanted to see how bad it would actually get. If you want to see how the party of acceptance and tolerance really treats people, look at any of the National headlines that have been posted about me this week, at the love videos that I posted, and even some of my families pictures.
Some vile nasty creatures have crawled out of humanities sewer and decided to do everything from celebrate my removal because of my political affiliation, all the way to wish me and my family ill will and even injury.
It reinforces why I have always felt that it’s important for everyone to be able to give and have differing opinions.
For the longest time, I had a few liberal friends that would argue that this type of language doesn’t come from their party. I’m glad at least now people can see it for themselves.
A spokesperson for Billy Gibbons said “Benton Blount was disinvited to continue the tour because of a creative decision.” Gibbons himself has not commented.

As part of ABC's "25 Days of Christmas," "The Great Christmas Light Fight" ignites Season 6 with two new episodes, MONDAY, NOV. 26 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EST), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

 The Opening Toss-Up story.  

While Project Runway is set to return to Bravo for season 17, Lifetime still has one more season of Project Runway All Stars. And it's going to be epic.
ET can exclusively reveal that All Stars will determine the first-ever "world champion of the catwalk" when it welcomes seven foreign champions -- all winners of international editions of Project Runway -- to compete against seven previous winners from the U.S. for its seventh and final season on the network. Contestants include winners from Australia, Brazil, Canada, the Netherlands and the U.K.

Hosted by Alyssa Milano, the series welcomes back longtime judges Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman as well as mentor and Marie Claire editor-in-chief Anne Fulenwider. They will be joined by a roster of A-list guest judges: Debra Messing, Vanessa Williams, Anna Camp, Andrew Rannells, Andrea Riseborough, Cynthia Erivo, Asia Kate Dillon, Wendy Williams, Tamron Hall, Danica Patrick, Disney stars Sofia Carson and Peyton List, designers Reem Acra and Rebecca Minkoff, fashion icon Iris Apfel, models Lily Aldridge, Olivia Culpo, Joan Smalls, Martha Hunt and Jasmine Tookes, and the fiercest judge of all, Nina Garcia.
While the new season marks the last for All Stars on Lifetime, the reality competition will continue on Bravo. However, the upcoming 17th season will also be notably different, with host Heidi Klum and mentor Tim Gunn both departing to partner on a new fashion-themed reality competition for Amazon. They have been replaced by model Karlie Kloss and past Project Runway winner Christian Siriano. Additionally, Zac Posen, who joined the judging panel in season 11, is also leaving the series.
The final season of Project Runway All Stars premieres Wednesday, Jan. 2 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime

After this commercial word,  Fox gets back on the island. That's....when Game Show Live! returns.

Today, USA Network announced that it will reboot one of the buzziest reality shows in television history: TEMPTATION ISLAND.
The 10-episode series, produced by Banijay Studios North America, will premiere on Tuesday, January 15 at 10/9c. Mark L. Walberg, who hosted the original series that premiered in 2001, is set to return as host. TEMPTATION ISLAND follows four dating couples at a pivotal time in their relationship, where they must mutually decide if they are ready to commit to one another for the rest of their lives -- or should go their separate ways.
Together, the couples travel to the tropical paradise of Maui, Hawaii, where they join 24 eligible men and women. There, they live the "single life," in a test that is meant to help answer their most difficult questions about their relationship.
David Goldberg, CEO, Banijay Studios North America, comments: "In a period of revival television, the return of TEMPTATION ISLAND, a show that leapt onto the scene with equal parts ratings bang and media attention, makes all the sense in the world. TEMPTATION ISLAND retains key format elements, but a concerted effort was made to populate the island with singles genuinely looking for love whose personalities are appealing to the four couples who are questioning the long term viability of their relationships. TEMPTATION ISLAND has never been more relevant because in so many ways it mirrors the way singles and couples navigate today's myriad of options to connect."
"As cable's #1 entertainment network for 12 years and running, USA is home to some of the most-talked about shows on TV," said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. "Our reboot of TEMPTATION ISLAND is sure to spark intrigue, debate and conversation for a whole new generation of viewers."
