I've got....2 tickets to.....Fantasy Land?

Compete by Setting a Weekly Lineup of Bachelorettes Based on Categories Ranging From Who Will Get a Rose to Who Will Say, 'I'm Here for the Right Reasons'
Grand Prize Winner Gets Fantasy Trip for Two to 'The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose' in Los Angeles Next Summer
The Bachelor Fantasy League, the official fantasy game of ABC's hit romance reality series "The Bachelor," is back with an all-new, re-imagined game experience for the 2019 season. Introducing a new format that allows fans to set a weekly lineup and earn fantasy roses based on how their Bachelorettes perform in each of the categories, the new Bachelor Fantasy League will bring viewers even closer to the action each week as Colton Underwood searches for his true love during the 23rd edition of the show.
Developed by Disney's Direct to Consumer & International (DTCI) Technology division, The Bachelor Fantasy League is available now at and on the ABC app and ESPN Fantasy app for iOS and Android mobile devices. The new season of "The Bachelor" premieres MONDAY, JAN. 7 (8:00-11:00 p.m. EST), with a live, three-hour special on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.
Fans playing The Bachelor Fantasy League game have the opportunity each week to set a lineup of Bachelorettes, anticipating who they think will get them the most fantasy roses based on specific categories for each week. Weekly categories may include predicting which Bachelorette will receive a rose from Colton, who will kiss Colton, who will say "I'm here for the right reasons," and more. Each Monday during the season, fans will have until 7:59 p.m. EST to set their lineups. Fans can join The Bachelor Fantasy League and start to earn roses at any point throughout the season. Also, fans who forget to update a lineup for a given week can still receive points for any of the remaining Bachelorettes carried over from the previous week's lineup.
In addition to competing with family and friends, fans who earn fantasy roses will be entered into a drawing for the chance to win The Bachelor Fantasy League Grand Prize: a three-day, two-night fantasy trip for two to Los Angeles to attend "The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose" special for the next season of "The Bachelorette" in 2019.

Time to check the Game Show Live! bulletin board.

Jan. 3, 2019 / PRZen / LOS ANGELES -- The Whiteboard Challenge Game Show is scheduled to film its pilot episode on Saturday April 27, 2019 at Cross Campus in Downtown Los Angeles from 2pm to 5pm.

The Whiteboard Challenge Game Show is a revolutionary game show taking aim at the tech-industry's interview process.  With decades of experience in the industry, Michael Kureth envisioned a game show that would introduce the masses to what actually happens in the interview conference rooms of top tech companies.

Three contestants will have the chance to impress the judges, all tech-industry insiders, for a chance to show off their technical prowess both on the whiteboard and in a timed coding event.   With a set of tokens, players will be able to change the outcome of their own whiteboard session while hindering that of their colleagues.

Filmed in Los Angeles in front of a live audience of industry professionals, contestants compete for prizes and recognition.  Being crowned champion labels one contestant as the true "rockstar" above all in an over saturated tech industry where everyone is claiming to be a software engineer.

To guarantee seating for professionals and avoid interruptions, we kindly ask that no recruiters attend the event.

(song stops)

Tyra Banks is leaving her job on the NBC competition program "America's Got Talent" and will focus on producing, The New York Post's Page Six reports, citing unnamed sources.
The report notes that Banks has been hinting around about exiting the program.
She's quoted telling "Access" in November: "I think I had a really nice run with 'AGT.' I had a lot a lot of fun."
At that time Banks said she was focusing on her Freeform movie sequel, "Life Size-2: A Christmas Eve." Banks executive produced and starred in the project. "A source close to Banks told Page Six that after the film's success this month, Banks has had a raft of offers and will focus on producing television," The Post reports.
The report adds: "Banks has also been teasing a big 2019 project — she's previously said she wants to make a 'Coyote Ugly' after she starred in the 2000 original with Piper Perabo." 

Iconic game show "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" will celebrate the 2019 edition of National Trivia Day on Friday, Jan. 4, with a day-long sweepstakes giving fans of the program the chance to test their knowledge, answer "Millionaire"-style questions and win prizes.
The sweepstakes will play out across "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire"'s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram platforms from 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. EST. Every two hours during that window of time, the show will post a trivia question and ask fans for the correct answer, using the hashtag #MillionaireSweepstakes. And every two hours, the "Millionaire" team will randomly pick two winners who each will receive a $100 American Express ® gift card. 

Oh and Sticking with Millionaire......

Jeremy Clarkson has claimed he's a lot nicer to the upcoming batch of 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?' contestants.
But don't go thinking he was visited by three ghosts over Christmas or anything like that, he's actually said he just reckons the new lot are cleverer than their predecessors.
The divisive presenter is currently gearing – pun intended – up for his second stint as host of the ITV quiz show, which was originally hosted by Chris Tarrant.
When asked how his second run as host differs from last year's episodes, he said (via The Telegraph): "I'm told I've been nicer to the contestants, but last year there were some very stupid contestants who didn't warrant any niceness.
"This time they've been - by and large, with one or two exceptions - sparky and on-it and bright and deserving of a place in the chair."
'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?' returns for a week starting tonight on ITV.

After being on TBS for close to 2 seasons......guess what is on TNT.........

Season 3 will be more jokers.....and less devils.

Get ready for our first 2019 edition of......

Buzz-GSN where we ask you guys on the GSN facebook page everything and anything.  And the first to kick off a new year of opinions and comments and questions is Louise Smith. Louise? 

"We want The Chase brought back - it is a very educational show and is watched by 91 percent of the people - America Says is on toooo many times and we get tired of that show - bring The Chase back immediately ."

Agreed, my friend. We go on to Jim Green. 

"Dear GSN - you do know there are other game shows besides Family Feud? If you must show FF 18 hours a day,
why not show the Richard Dawson era?"

Well then, why not? Have some Combs mixed in there.  We go on to Brian C. Apuzzo. 

"Wanted to say Thanks GSN for showing episodes of the Classic" What's My Line?" I Love this show and wish you would start airing it all year long again along ..the orig shows from the 50's and 60's are the Best! Please consider adding it on a regular basis! also " To Tell The Truth" orig shows as well!"

Everything is appreciated. Next up, Candy Mcintosh-Smith.

"I absolutely love "America Says", however, when the rest of the answers are revealed, could you please have the camera zoom in on the answers? The audience is so loud that we can't hear the correct answers. Thank you so very much!"

That would be a good way to keep the viewers entertained at home. We go on to Jonathan Lahti.

"Where are my classic game shows? You should show some that Buzzr doesn't currently show. You should bring back Tic Tac Dough and Joker's Wild. Also show older episodes of Wheel of Fortune and not ones from recent years. You also have to get the remaining episodes of Press Your Luck that you have yet to air. I really want Shop Til You Drop back because Supermarket Sweep is on Buzzr. I remember when you guys started airing Lifetime episodes that haven't aired in over 20 years, but after 3 episodes, why did you have to take it off? You need to show more classic shows. Stop this Steve Harvey nonsense. People are going to get tired of seeing the same old shows. Please limit Steve Harvey to 2 hours a day. #IWantMyClassics"

Sounds like 1998 to me. On we go to Mary Lynn Ewing.

Bring back Caroline and Friends.

Our reply:

We have Jenifer Lawrence now. Notice the single N in order not to cofuse herself with a famous actress. She says:

"Please add a score graphic to America Says so we can keep score along with the contestants. It Will create much more suspense for the viewer. I’m often lost as to what the actual score is."

That would be a cool idea. Next up, Dee Cardillo.

"I have been enjoying watching GSN and love Family Feud but the continuous repeats are annoying. The show has been on forever you would think they wouldn't have to keep repeating them.
Also, this week it looks like Cash Cab is no longer on at 11 and 11:30 pm. What's up with that?"

 I do not know. FInally, Tim Bowling.

"Love the shows. What I'm NOT loving is the "K Y Yours and Mine" commercial on every. Single. Commercial. Break."

Yep. That's watching the commericals getting repeated to see something to people. 

Now on to a Gamestop Game Break. We want 2019 to be off to a fresh start and a new game is here. Let's call it.....

I have a stack of old TV guides left when the owners last last before the building got sold to us and I want you to find out what TV show I'm describing. Ready?

The series featured the story of Dr. Jonathan Chase, a shape-shifter who could turn himself into any animal he chose, and used this ability to help fight crime. Only two people were aware of Jonathan's secret, his friend Ty Earl and Police Detective Brooke Mackenzie. Jonathan and Ty would assist Brooke with a case she was working on, with Jonathan transforming himself into an animal when it became useful.

So...What are We Watching? I'll give you a minute to think after a Google Play music interlude. We've received many emails and texts and tweets regarding AudreyisMusic, our newest Bullseye bonus island blonde ambition and she has agreed to do an acoustic version of "Bandit" being performed at the 2nd annual Game Show Live! honors last month, so Audrey........go to it.

And.....let's find out what were we watching....

It was Manimal. Manimal was scheduled opposite CBS's popular soap opera Dallas. The 90-minute pilot aired on September 30, and the one-hour series began airing two weeks later. Manimal was placed on hiatus after only four regular episodes had aired, and production on the show ceased at that time. The show returned to the NBC schedule a month later, burning off the three remaining produced episodes before the show was officially canceled due to low ratings. Manimal was a part of NBC's 1983 fall line-up which also featured eight other series that were canceled before their first seasons ended (including Jennifer Slept Here, Bay City Blues, and We Got It Made).[4]
Manimal is not well regarded by many TV reviewers. John Javna's book The Best of Science Fiction TV included Manimal in its list of the "Worst Science Fiction Shows of All Time", along with Space: 1999Lost in SpaceBuck Rogers in the 25th Century, and The Starlost.[5] TV Guide also ranked Manimal number 15 on their list of the 50 Worst TV Shows of All Time in 2002. In 2004, readers of the British trade weekly Broadcastvoted Manimal as one of the worst television shows ever exported by the U.S. to the U.K. It placed fifth on their list, exceeded only by BaywatchThe Anna Nicole ShowThe Dukes of Hazzard and Wild Palms.[6] The Ultimate Encyclopedia of Fantasy described Manimal thus: "Axed after seven regular episodes, the only surprise being that it ever got past the pilot stage".[7]

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, Price geos Bonkers.....way too much. But first, here's a perfect example of how you play it.

But this.....

Anybody got an Aleve? That's how dumb Carla was.

That's it for this week. Today's consolation prize is a box of tide pods. Why a box of tide pods? And when can you actually eat it?

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.
