Disconnection Issues

This revamp of a dating show pulls the plug.....

Live mobile game news to pull you in....

And a second opinion on Small talk to pull you over. All this and.....


Bullseye!  Let's..............Get.....................Lit!!!!!!!!!!

Jordan Sailors:  From coast to coast..............

And Across America.....and the world.........this is..............

Now here is America's favorite contestant, Pierre Kelly!!!!! 

Me: Thank you Joeykat while Madi2Themax is in bed somewhere in the Maple Heights area because she suffered an injury and has decided not to come to our studio for a long time. We have a report about it, and here it is. 

        Hope your foot will heal, Madi. Sending you postive vibes. However, the month will continue as plan, but we got a blog to do. You're looking at 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 may be fun while it lasted, but after 2 seasons, we'd all prefer the OG version with Chuck.

FOX has officially canceled its Love Connection reboot with Andy Cohen after two seasons.
Love Connection has struggled through its two seasons on the air, with low ratings and little fan engagement. On Wednesday morning, Cohen himself announced the cancellation in an interview on Sirius XM's The Howard Stern Show. "They canceled it," he said glumly.
Later, a FOX representative confirmed the news to reporters from TVLine. Love Connection finished its second season in September.
Even the big finale did not draw an impressive audience. The show scored a 0.5 Nielsen rating in the key demographic of adults ages 18 to 49. Its total viewers were judged at 1.82 million. To its credit, Love Connection took a lot of risks to draw in more viewers in Season 2.
The show ditched one of its most callous features — the optional pay-out. It allowed the audience to vote on the contestants' best match, and if the contestant picked the same person, they were awarded $10,000. If they did not, they were forced to choose between their date and the cash.
The show did away with this part in Season 2, as it had been heavily criticized by critics and viewers. It re-branded, promising "more happy endings" for the couples that played, but it could not reclaim its alienated viewers.. 

And to show you why the classic is still cool......

After this commercial word, headlines....on the live mobile frontlines. Game Show Live! will return in.....2 in 2. Hey, I'm getting good at this.

A few weeks ago, Skylar Mcnulty or as we know now as Skyeheart Z. Tellymime was freed with a new look and a new personality the internet was talking about. Now she's stepping up to the soapbox to talk about a local groundbreaking station in the southeast. Roll it!!!!!

We've all heard the phrase, March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, right? Well, here's a segment that lets you come in determined and out like a heavyweight champion. It's.....

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

We could all use an extra $1000, right? And we could all use a little light-hearted fun in our work/stay-at-home/work-at-home mom day, no doubt. Enter School'd by Scary Mommy. The extremely addictive new trivia game just for moms.
Hosted by NYC-based comedians Brittney Jenkins and Kami Dimitrova, the game is easy to play, a ton of fun, and can mean winning big money. Think HQ Trivia, only questions you might totally know the answers to.
First of all, players need to follow the School'd by Scary Mommy page in order to get an alert when a new game starts. That would be every Tuesday and Thursday at 1pmEST/10amPST.
You'll need to play on your Smartphone because the game isn't playable on computers, so you'll just have to wrestle it from your Baby Shark-obsessed toddler for a few minutes every day around lunchtime. No big.
Again, it's just like HQ. The host will ask a total of 12 questions, one at a time. You'll have 10 seconds per question to choose an answer from the multiple choices. If you get all 12 questions right, (which, YASS GURL) you'll win the $1000 prize. If you're not the only trivia genius playing to win, you'll just split the $1000 with the others who got them all correct.
A very cool feature of School'd is that players can continue playing even if they get a question wrong–they just can't win the money. Which means you can get in some super low-pressure practice and hopefully, come back and win next time. N
ow, you might be wondering about what types of questions we'll ask, and don't worry — they're all geared toward moms and meant to be fun, not stressful. There will be special categories like Old School'd (think fun throwback stuff), That's Sick! (health), Girl Power (women empowerment), Hangry Games (food), and Hot and Bothered (relationship/sex). Knowing that the topics are all pretty close to home makes the game a lot more fun.
So there you have it, all summed up. Follow School'd by Scary Mommy so you get the alerts every Tuesday and Thursday at 1pmEST/10amPST. May the odds be ever in your favor.

For those of you who still play Joyride (and those who stopped only because you didn't have enough keys to play anything), they've made it preposterously easy to stockpile keys at no cost while playing a game on your schedule. The ten-question "Trivia Blitz" solo game they introduced a couple weeks ago is (for now anyway) easier than it was before, and it's paying out buckets full of keys.

If you want your primetime fix of Gambino, here's why.

However, at the same time, Swag IQ is no more. Nowadays........

Same hosts, newer edginess.

Over to Out of Tune and March Madness has begun. Every game has a theme and it's madness every game you play. Also, if you refer with a friend, you will be in the running for.....a  t-shirt. Not bad. Also, The Little Mermen which if you didn't know, is a Disney tribute band will stop by the show. In fact they have a message for them.....

It'll all be on March 12th. Mark it on your calendars.

Finally, The Q is having a secret to keep it, in fact.....

I signed up. You can too.

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

Top Chef spin-off Just Desserts is heading to Thailand alongside a second season of World of Dance after NBCUniversal closed a pair of deals. The Hollywood studio's international formats division has signed a deal for the shows with The One Enterprise. It will produce an 11-part series of Just Desserts for its One31 channel that will see pastry chefs flex their professional skills and go head to head in a series of challenges. Top Chef also airs on One31 and was recently renewed for a third season. Meanwhile, World of Dance, which was originally produced by Universal Television Alternative Studios in association with Jennifer Lopez' Nuyorican Productions, will run for a second season on One31. Ana Langenberg, SVP, Format Sales & Production, NBCUniversal International Formats said, "Top Chef remains as one of our most successful franchises to date, so to bring a third season and a Just Desserts spin off to local audiences is truly exciting. To add to that, we are also excited for another season of World of Dance within the territory. The One Enterprise and One31 generated a local version that boasts high quality production standards and excellent on-screen talent, so we are proud to see the remake prove so popular and successful."

Going Across.....The Pond to this.

Hey Tracey! is a brand-new quiz show for ITV2, hosted by Joel Dommett, where celebrities play to win cash for members of the public… with some unpredictable consequences.
In real life if you don't know the answer to a question you can ask Siri or Alexa. In this show, unfortunately you're stuck with Tracey.
If our celebrities don't know the answer to Joel's unusual questions, they can say "Hey Tracey!" and enlist the help of his very own virtual assistant. But forget your high-end Silicon Valley artificial intelligence – Tracey was thrown together by some sixth formers in the late 90's as part of their technology coursework… and she can usually be found tucking into a pie or painting her nails.
Each time our celebs summon her help, Tracey can connect them with someone in the real world that might be able to help. Less phone-a-friend, more like comedy cold calling. And that means everyone from dog groomers to massage parlours, piano tuners to equine dentists, roadside burger vans to reptile houses.
So, if our celebrities want to win big, they'd better make sure they say… "Hey Tracey!" 

And hey, it's time for.....

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

Lynn Darby will get it going. 

Really like the show Common Knowledge. Could the producer tell the host Mr. Fatone,to give up the posing with his hands folded,and resting on his jacket? Could they make him more well dressed? My husband says Joey is not very lively. So Sorry. I want to watch the program and he wants to turn it off because of the non-liveliness of the host. I want to end the battle. Thanks."

Um.......I wished he did. David Saltzmann will be next.

stuff that Common Knowledge pop up on the site. you want to tick people off, keep that pop up. i will not watch that show because of that pop up. don't you know if you piss people off it has the opposite affect than your looking for.

Seriously? What about Steve College?

ENOUGH OF FAMILY FEUD. Every time I turn Game Show Network on, its Family Feud. Go into the archives and show different shows.

Enough is really enough. Elieen Bohannon is up next.

Love America Says, but please change the awkward camera work. You should show the whole team, not just one person at a time. We want to see when someone answers out of turn for instance.

Ok then.......Brad Fitzpatrick is next.

How is Caroline & Friends classified as a gameshow?? It's just a talkshow with funny videos. Granted, most of us are sick of Family Feud being shown 14 hours a day, but still...

GSN thinks they know it, but hey, they got rid of it.  Debbie Hughes will be next. 

Sure wish you would alter your line up. With all the great games out there you keep repeating Family Feud, over and over and over and over...... ad nauseam. 
And yet that very funny Idiot Test you air at 2 a.m. And Cash Cab so late but at least it's on all afternoon on the weekends. What happened to Minute To Win It or Concentration or Password or Wipe Out? Yeah Wipe Out was a great show.

Yep. Finally, Jonathan Lahti.

Here are some shows I would like to see back on Game Show Network. The classic Joker's Wild since another season of Snoop Dogg's Joker's Wild just started, Lifetime Shop Til You Drop since Supermarket Sweep is on Buzzr, Press Your Luck because you still have to show the remaining episodes (one of which has the falling N), all versions of Card Sharks, different episodes of the Pyramid that never aired on your network, older episodes of Wheel of Fortune from the 80s and 90s instead of ones from 2013 and other recent seasons, and also the Richard Dawson and Ray Combs Family Feud instead of ALL THAT STEVE HARVEY FEUD! Please show more classic game shows on your network instead of spending your money on ones from recent years. You should replace a few Match Games, one episode of Catch 21, and a few hours of Steve Harvey Family Feud with classic shows. You guys show about 5 hours of Steve Harvey every day and that is too much. Please limit him to 2 hours a day.

That would be a really great idea to get more eyeballs into the channel. 

Time for a Gamestop Game Break. Here's a question I might ask in secret:  Can You.....Sqramble This?

Hint: Hawaiians drink it.

You will get a Google Play music interlude becuase in it's third year......

Prepare for a maximum of madness. Prepare.....for a madness of Madison. Prepare......for Madi2TheMax-imum March Madness.  Our Match Game mistress of impressionism is about to do a new favorite of mine: The Dragon Prince.

Here comes the answer to this:

Hey kids, if there was a children's version of Hollywood Squares, then you've found......Small Talk. Here's the UK original.....

The original of course had 9 but by the time it was over, the US decided to fiddle around with it.

Subtract 2 for this experiment and it's 7 kids but with a different flair of the same show. Game Show Garbage told us about it.

But sometimes, you need a second opinon. Here's my opinion.

When I was about a teenager in middle school, Small Talk was my show when I got off school along with other Family Channel programming. It seemed that way Wil Shriner wanted to stick to the channel that made him the man of "That's My Dog," but Reg Grundy needed a hit since Scrabble back in 1984. Time Machine was the start of a bad run of shows done in the USA but with $ale and Scrabble around the 1980s and 1990s, they were surefire daytime hits for NBC. The guys behind those two wanted to try cable and guess what? They wanted a BBC show and acquired the show. It was supposed to be the same, but alas, it was this. It was a question that might lead or mislead into a question to predict what the child would say and in between all of this, Wil having a funny quip. What did the family channel deserve for his paycheck? Plus a bonus round for $1000? Why not $5000 or something? What was this show the last gasp for Reg Grundy's company to get back into the business? Guess Small Talk wasn't the big fish in a pond.

That's it for this week. Today's consolation prize is a dailymotion video. It doesn't give you the stupdity you get when you upload it on Youtube but it gives you memories.
