Livewire! 2/15

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

Livewire! Your news.......with sass. Presented by Chuck E. Cheeses, where a kid....and not a Youtube personality....can be a kid.   And now from our Game Show Live! Newsroom, here comes Pierre Kelly!

Me: Thank you Madi2theMax, welcome to Livewire!  After giving out candy hearts and greting cards yesterday, we're about to give out a love story between reality and game shows. Where do we begin? And why do I have to get this stupid theme from "Love Story" out of my head? I need to listen to "The Standard" a little less and listen to Meri Amber's music. But we're here to listen to us.......get wired!!!!!

Brooke Burgstahler has been cast on GH as Zoey, someone who will cross paths with two men in Port Charles. Burgstahler has had small roles in the TV shows Black-ish and Or Die Trying.

Jennifer Hudson recently surprised the audience of THE VOICE with a spontaneous performance of 'The Impossible Dream' from Man of La Mancha. Watch below!
Jennifer won the Academy Award, Golden Globe, and BAFTA Award for her performance as Effie White in Dreamgirls. Her breakout film performance also garnered a Screen Actors Guild Award and an NAACP Image Award. Additional film credits include Sex and the City, Secret Life of Bees, Winnie Mandela, The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete, and Black Nativity. Her highly acclaimed album, JHUD, dropped this past fall in the top 10 on Billboard's Top 200. Just prior, she released singles including the recently Grammy-nominated "It's Your World," featuring R. Kelly; "He Ain't Goin' Nowhere," featuring Iggy Azaelea; "I Can't Describe," produced by Pharrell and featuring TI; and "Walk It Out," featuring Timbaland. Most recently, Hudson was featured on Gorgon City's chart topping track, "Go All Night," off their new album, Sirens. Hudson's 2008 debut album went Platinum and entered Billboard's Top 200 at No. 2 thus marking the biggest first week sales for an R&B female entry since 2004. The album was nominated for four Grammys and won for "Best R&B Album." In 2009, Hudson released her sophomore album, I Remember Me which debuted at No. 2 on Billboard's Top 200 and R&B Albums charts and has since been certified Gold in the U.S.

One viewer sent a tweet to our servers about.....The Great Sewing Bee......yes, it's a real show.....and she said.....

Joe will host this year as the ten contestants battle to be named Britain’s Best Home sewist. As per previous years, they will be under the watchful eyes of judges Patrick Grant and Esme Young.
Joe kicked off his career as a stand-up comedian and has also hosted a BBC game show called The Time It Takes. We're looking forward to seeing more of his presenting skills as Sewing Bee continues.

In case we left the memo in the meeting room, RET Worldwide is 10 years old. Can you believe it? It's a coincidence it came around the same time as the analog shutdown. Ironic. And here's a retrospective to show us why retro still rules.

 And because you've been a good boy....or's Tellymime on a countdown focusing on a 90's detective show. Hint: It's not L&O.

Call Blocked!

It’s closing time for Last Call With Carson Daly: The NBC late-night series is coming to an end after 17 years on the air, TVLine has learned.
Daly has decided to step away from the talk show in order to spend more time with his family and concentrate on his other hosting jobs at Today and The Voice.
“If you had told me in 2002 I would be a part of the historic NBC late-night family for 17 years, I would have said you were crazy!” Daly said in a statement. “Hard to believe it’s been so long — 2,000 episodes. It’s time to move on to something new and let someone else have access to this incredible platform. My twenties were about finding a good job. My thirties were about taking on as many of them as I could. Now, in my forties, I’m focused on quality over quantity. I want to do more with my Today family and continue hosting and producing The Voice and explore new opportunities.”
He continued: “I’m forever grateful and proud to all who have worked with us at Last Call over the years. So many have gone on to achieve incredible success… I could have all the jobs in the world, but none of them are more important to me than that of Dad. My family will always remain my top priority and greatest gig.”

The Steve Harvey money machine just keeps on rolling along.
The latest enterprise by the ubiquitous TV and radio host is Steve Harvey Deals, a website offering discounts on products and services.
“You buy whatever you were going to buy and you get a discount,” Harvey said at a press conference announcing the venture last weekend before hosting “NFL Honors,” a CBS primetime special from Atlanta. “The best way to have money is to keep it. When I’m in a store, I’m hustling, looking for bargains.”
Initial participating companies in Steve Harvey Deals are Holiday Inn Express, 1-800-Flowers, Budget and PureTalk. More are expected to follow.
Formed in conjunction with Atlanta-based Rhythmic Ventures and operated by BrandON Enterprises Limited, the new platform “leverages Harvey’s huge popularity and reach with his daily morning radio show and multiple television programs,” according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

ABC will air a special first-look episode of "Videos After Dark," a new comedy reality series hosted by comedian Bob Saget and featuring home videos with an edgier twist, TUESDAY, MARCH 12 (10:00- 11:00 p.m. EDT), following the epic conclusion to the two-night season finale of "The Bachelor," on The ABC Television Network.
Following the notable success of the original franchise, the producers of "America's Funniest Home Videos" have created a new comedy reality series, "Videos After Dark," featuring comedian Bob Saget. As the original host of "America's Funniest Home Videos," Saget is no stranger to the world of home videos, and this hour-long episode will center on videos from Vin Di Bona's vast video vault, highlighted by Saget's comedic commentary and catered to a more mature audience. "Videos After Dark" reunites Vin Di Bona and Bob Saget in a show where the hits are a little harder, the language a bit saltier, the animals a little less cute, the kids a tad less adorable and the embarrassing moments more revealing.


Hey, Eva Marcille, you just won ANTM. What are you going to do next? 

Yes, Tyra Banks will open up the theme park later this year.
The 45-year-old model and "America's Got Talent" host announced plans for the new attraction in Santa Monica in a press release Tuesday.
Modelland will be located in a multi-level, 21,000 sq. ft. space at Macerich's Santa Monica Place. The theme park is slated to open in late 2019.
"Modelland has been 10 intense years in the making," Banks said in a statement. "It has been my ultimate dream and I have worked tirelessly with laser-focused tunnel vision to bring it to fruition."
Modelland is an entertainment, retail and dining destination that aims "to bring modeling to the masses and expand the definition of beauty."


You don’t have to be a game show fanatic to enjoy the enthralling celebration of chance on display in the 2018 documentary Game Changers. Now streaming on Prime VideoGame Changers is just about as must-see as it gets for anyone who’s ever found themselves shouting answers at their TV while watching JeopardyFamily Feud, or The Price is Right.
Hosted by living legend Alex Trebek, the doc explores the rich history of the genre by interviewing a veritable who’s who of game show legends, including Monty Hall, Bob Eubanks, Wink Martindale, Pat Sajak, Vanna White, and many more. While the nostalgic stroll down memory lane is entertaining, the most compelling aspect of Game Changers is, naturally, all that hot game show gossip.

How about a little love song from JJ Heller to end the day?

That's all for now, but remember one thing: Will there ever be a Great Crossword Puzzle bee? I hope Merv Griffin is smiling in heaven.....
So until next time and all the on playas.

It's Paradise....not a pair of dice.....

This week....A bachelor's return to paradise....

Millionaire gets on the postive road.......

And have you ever dated Trisha Hershberger naked before she got married? And if so why? All this and.....

There's a Jeannie on the bottle if you gotta fold your arms and blink the right way.


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.  

It's another wild ride as "Bachelor in Paradise" will return for its sixth season this summer with favorite members of Bachelor Nation getting another chance at finding love. Host and keeper of the keys, Chris Harrison, greets the familiar men and women that are hoping to find love on the beach like Ashley I. and Jared, Carly and Evan, and Jade and Tanner.
Hosted by Chris Harrison, "The Bachelor" and "Bachelor in Paradise" are productions of Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television. Martin Hilton, Mike Fleiss, Nicole Woods, Bennett Graebner and Elan Gale are the executive producers of "The Bachelor." "Bachelor in Paradise" is executive produced by Martin Hilton, Mike Fleiss, Nicole Woods and Bennett Graebner.
Meanwhile, the recipient of the 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2014 Emmy(R) Award for Outstanding Structured Reality Program, "Shark Tank" features The Sharks - tough, self-made, multimillionaire and billionaire tycoons - as they invest in America's best businesses and products. The Sharks will give people from all walks of life the chance to chase the American dream and potentially secure business deals that could make them millionaires. Mark Burnett, Clay Newbill, Yun Lingner, Max Swedlow, Phil Gurin, and Sharks Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John & Kevin O'Leary are the executive producers of "Shark Tank," which is based on the Japanese "Dragons' Den" format, created by Nippon Television Network Corporation. The series is produced by MGM Television in association with Sony Pictures Television.

As for "Dancing with the Stars", newly-installed Alphabet entertainment president Karey Burke addressed the speculation Tuesday at the Television Critics Assoc. winter press tour, declaring unequivocally that the show will "definitely be returning in the fall." Regarding the decision to skip a spring cycle for the first time in franchise history, Burke deflected, "That decision was made before I got here."
Having skipped this spring outright and aired an abbreviated all-athletes edition a year ago, could DWTS ever be a proper twice-a-year show again? "We're in conversations about that," Burke told TVLine. "They're coming in soon to talk about their plans for the fall, and we'll discuss it then." 

After this commercial word, a positive story you don't want to miss. That's.......when Game Show Live returns.

The real live online quiz truth in real live online quiz news, suckers!

HQ is cozying up with Google.
Most famous for viral app HQ trivia, the company is launching an "action" for Google Assistant called HQ University on Feb. 11. The game is quite similar to HQ trivia: Players answer 12 questions that get increasingly challenging. Players are walked through the game with HQ trivia host Scott Rogowsky and teacher's assistant Fredo (a voice bot).
However, people playing HQ University don't have the chance to win cash. The game is intended to help users get better at playing trivia. The game is available on Google Home, Smart Displays that have Google Assistant and the Google Assistant app on smartphones.
Even though it's a voice-first experience, players using Smart Display or Android phones will have special interactions on their screens. This game is part of an ongoing sponsorship deal between Google and HQ, which began last year.
HQ declined to share how much Google has paid, so far.

A new app's creators think they know the key to dating success: a trivia-oriented game show where the questions revolve around a bachelorette. It's a unique idea, for sure, albeit one that I can't imagine having wide appeal.
The game, called Quiz Date Live, comes from a company called East Meets East, which has raised $4 million in funding to get its iOS show off the ground. The team plans to monetize in a way similar to the mobile HQ game show by giving users the option to purchase extra lives. The game has two parts, and the second part has three rounds.
The first part involves a contestant who the company chooses based on email entries, telling potential participants about herself. The second part is where that shared information comes into play. In round one, users have to answer multiple choice questions based on that live stream. In round two, the bachelorette asks players questions to get to know them better, which they then answer through SMS texts. The single person will pick her top three people (based on their answers) to be in round three.
In round three, those final three are then asked to "impress" the contestant with a song, dance, poetry, or whatever else. This is streamed to viewers live. The winner, as chosen by the contestant, gets to go on an expense-paid date, like a helicopter ride or a dinner at a fancy restaurant.
A host is present during the live game, in addition to the bachelorette, to keep the game flowing and to moderate the live stream.

Facebook keeps plowing more money into original programming for Watch: The company ordered a six-part docu-series on NBA superstar Stephen Curry and set a Feb. 20 premiere date for BuzzFeed News' interactive trivia game show "Outside Your Bubble."
BuzzFeed News is gearing up for next week's launch of "Outside Your Bubble," powered by Facebook's interactive game-show platform, hosted at
The live trivia show — which promises cash prizes to both in-studio contestants and audience members — is the latest move into the genre inspired by the popularity of HQ Trivia. Facebook last year launched its own live trivia game show, "Confetti," which bestows cash prizes.
BuzzFeed's "Outside Your Bubble" was an experimental concept that originated in early 2017 as an attempt to show readers what's happening outside their own social-media cocoon. The game show challenges contestants to reach across the cultural divide to guess what their opponents on the other side are thinking.
The show will be hosted by Brian Tong, an online, TV and radio host, creator and podcaster who is one of the hosts for WarnerMedia's DC Universe. "Outside Your Bubble" features a dynamic jackpot that can fluctuate throughout the show, depending on decisions that are made by the studio contestants.
Richard Brown serves as showrunner and executive producer of "Outside Your Bubble," along with BuzzFeed News head of programming Cindy Vanegas-Gesuale and VP of news and programming Shani Hilton.

And now for something completely different. Publishers Clearing House has an app now called Wincredible. They have three games a day, at 2, 5, and 8 pm ET. Pixel Pop, Total Recall, and What's That? I just played Total Recall, where they showed 10 GIFs and then asked a question (how many puppies? What was the kid of car in the background? etc.) 

You have until February 21st to do it, so get on this....

Over to Words with Friends live and this week......there will be changes.

Image may contain: text

Plan accordingly. Finally.....

Cheddar, the leading post cable networks company, today announced its first-ever weeknight primetime programming, featuring Comedy Central’s critically-acclaimed business comedy series Nathan For You.
Named ‘Cheddar Nights,’ the weeknight block also includes live music game show Out of Tune, in which viewers have to guess a Top 40 song in under 10 seconds, and Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch, where entrepreneurs have 60 seconds pitch their business to real investors. Cheddar Nights will air on the Cheddar Business network weeknights 8 pm to 10 pm ET.
“After the bell rings and the market is closed, Cheddar Nights takes over with a fun, light way to wind down in the evening. These programs are a perfect fit with Cheddar’s millennial audience and focus on business content. Where else can you watch Nathan hilariously lending a hand to business owners, amazing entrepreneurs making their pitch during a 60-second elevator ride, and play along with the world’s first interactive music game show?” said Peter Gorenstein, Chief Content Officer at Cheddar.
Out of Tune, which averages thousands of live players, will air live at 8 pm weekdays as part of Cheddar Nights and will also run a second show at 11 pm. With 90 percent of the audience under 34, the game features DJs playing twelve songs out of tune, giving players ten seconds to guess the correct title. The game is sticky. Even after players are eliminated, 65 percent stay for the entire game.

And that sadly was the real live online quiz truth in real live online quiz news, suckers!!!!!

most dates end in a disaster. Introducing.....

Relationship Disasters. A month of disastrous TV shows involving dating.

Hide your eyes folks. 

Dating Naked is an American reality dating game show shown on VH1, which debuted in July 2014. The show matched up several contestants who were routinely switched with other contestants. While contestants were nude most of the time, the show does not show contestants' genitals. Amy Paffrath served as the host for the first two seasons and was clothed in her appearances. The first season was filmed on an island in Panama.
The second season, re-titled Dating Naked: Playing for Keeps and filmed in the Philippines, premiered on July 22, 2015[2] and concluded on September 16, 2015.[3]
The third season, hosted by Rocsi Diaz and filmed in Bora Bora, premiered on June 29, 2016 and concluded on September 14, 2016.[1]
On April 14, 2017, VH1 announced that Dating Naked was canceled after three seasons, though VH1 left open the possibility of a future series reboot.

I guess Dating Naked is nothing but a.....

Relationship Disaster.
