The Trivia Monster among Men

This week....Jeopardy! has created a millennial Ken Jennings......

Sharks keep swimming with Mr. Harrison......

And you get an award.......for game shows. All this and.......

Have you ever dated my twin nephew? 


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.

For the first time ever since the Ken Jennings era way back in 2004, James Holzhauer is turning and turning victories into closer and closer wins with each day passing. Not only did he smash the 1-day single game record for the most winnings, but he is over the $1 million dollar mark and looking to nab KenJen off the record books. However, America's #1 quiz show is laying down a few ground rules for all future contestants who want to be like Charlotte flair in Wrestlemania this year. Here's why.

eopardy! contestants are dropping some knowledge about what is and is not allowed on the show as far as wager amounts, and it's pretty interesting.
It all started with Jeopardy!'s current big winner, James Holzhauer, who broke the $1 million earned mark on the show on Tuesday.
Holzhauer has got a lot of attention for his huge streak and his betting knowledge that allows him to make sensible wagers.
Former contestant Ken Jennings commented on this on Twitter, saying he also made "small, sensible Jeopardy wagers."
Someone responded, saying they liked how he "wagered $69 on every final jeopardy."
Then, Jennings revealed that wagering $69 is forbidden on the show. "As of last year. not even joking."

Holzhauer also tweeted on the comment, saying: there are five banned wagers from the show.

Actually, there are five banned wagers. This is probably the most innocuous one. — James Holzhauer (@James_Holzhauer)
Those other wagers include $666, $14, $88 and $1488. The first is due to the relation on Satan, which is well known in the punk/metal scene. The other three are associated with white supremacy, which is why they're banned.
Even though Jeopardy! isn't in to 69 jokes or Satanic rituals, you can still bet $420 on the show if you're into betting funny numbers.

After this commercial word, a Millionaire crossover to sink your teeth into. That's.......when Game Show Live returns. 

(fade to break)

Madison: Some members of our viewing audience will receive..

Tickets to Public Domain: The Musical. 

The characters of nearly every beloved animated movie musical (from “The Little Mermaid” to “The Lion King” to “Frozen”) have not always been under the same house of mouse: they began in fairy tales and stories from the public domain.
But what about the public domain characters who have never appeared in an animated movie? In “Public Domain: The Musical,” characters from the bottom of the barrel audition with original songs to show why they deserve to have their own time in the spotlight.
Anyone in the LA area should click on this:

Now back to a guy who's in the public eye everywhere he goes, Pierre Kelly!

Me: Thank you Madi and welcome back.  I want you all to look at this.

On December 31st of 2018 I bought a ticket to the #RuggedManiac mud run.πŸƒ‍♀️ It was a motivater for me to get in shape and start working out. The first 2 months of my training went fantastic. I was going in gradients, doing a mile run and cardio work outs every day, eating right and starting to feel good about my body. πŸ’ͺ😁πŸ’ͺ Then on February 16th tragedy struck. 😲 While training at the gym to practice for the obsticals I slid down a wall, my foot got caught under me, my sneaker held onto the wall as I continued to go down.... For two days I convinced myself it was just a sprain. It was not a sprain. My leg was fractured. πŸ€• The Doctor said there was no way I would be able to do the mud run. πŸ‘©‍⚕️ The following 6 weeks were some of the hardest of my life. I spent most of my time laying on my back with my foot in the air trying desperately to say up beat.  I had been feeling so good about my body and that I was on the right path. So to have it all just come to a complete stop... I'm not going to lie it was tough for me. But I know that I would be back on my feet one day. I would heal... eventually. You know the old saying "if you're going through hell, keep going". So I did. I started doing upper body work out and getting back to myself. πŸ’ͺ The day of RUGGED MANIAC finally came. I went, planning JUST to cheer on my brother and my friends but came away with a medal and the biggest sense of acomplenshment in my life! πŸ˜²πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜† I completed the course, I did some obsticals and I have never felt better! πŸ… Thanks you to @ruggedmaniac for this amazing race.Thank you so much to all the people that told me how impressed they were that I was doing the run in a boot. Thank you to @xan_rogers for getting me sign up. And of course thank you to @jedi_skater and @b.arbs_ for helping so much along that way! . . . #keepgoing #mudrun #getrugged #mudrunner #workout #ruggedmaniac2019 #spartanrace #spartanrun #Actress #Hollywood #voiceactor #storytime #brokenleg #walkingboot #walkingbootlife

You've heard of the Joker's Wild, right? Well......

The quiz show Joker features reversals of fortune from start to finish, as contestants win and lose money at breakneck speeds right up until the end.
The series has been licensed into a handful of countries by Global Agency, which has seen the format picking up steam as of late after being in the catalog for six years.
Joker was created by Erdi Yapim, one of the co-creators of Global Agency's hit daily strip Shopping Monsters. The series debuted in 2013 on TRT in Turkey, garnering strong ratings for the channel across more than 50 episodes.
The company's long-time client HervΓ© Hubert then came to Turkey to shoot a French pilot, which caught the interest of France 2. The channel aired 300-plus episodes to much success about four years ago, but gave the show time to rest two years back. Joker has since returned on France 2, now airing weekly instead of daily.
Izzet Pinto, founder and CEO of Global Agency, says that after its solid performances in Turkey and France, the format "was on pause" for a little while, since quiz shows were proving a tougher sell in the marketplace. Much like the changing fates of the players in the series itself, the format has now seen a resurgence in interest.
Poland's Super Polsat licensed the show and has aired 80 episodes across two seasons, with a third in consideration. Having its sights set on breaking into Western Europe, Global Agency sold the format in Portugal last year, with 200 episodes commissioned. Joker has since been airing every day on RTP. Slovenia is the most recent country to come on board, with public broadcaster TV SLO 1 having launched the show in February for 25 weekly episodes in prime time.
"The channel is super happy with the viewing figures," says Pinto. "Some episodes have reached over a 40 percent share; so almost half of the country watched the show. It's the highest rated program on the channel."
With the momentum continuing like a domino effect, in the last six months, Global Agency has secured a slew of option deals. This includes across Europe such as in Italy, Spain and Germany, as well as in countries across the Middle East.
In the format, players are asked ten questions and have seven "jokers" to help them eliminate wrong answers from the multiple choices offered. For each correct response, the player moves up the money tree. A wrong answer means they lose three jokers, and when the jokers have run out, contestants drop down three pegs on the money tree. Whatever their position is when the last question is answered determines their winnings.

If playing live trivia apps makes you feel like you're at a music fest, then you're in with a lineup of games you play instead of stars and the phone is the stage right in front of you all without at actual expense of Coachella or Bonnaroo or wherever.

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

As publishers struggle with short attention spans, a local trivia startup has found a way to help companies engage their audiences through games.
A new competition called ITK — short for "in the know" — launched Tuesday from Charleston-based Stream.
The new game was designed in the style of "Family Feud," where players answer a simple question by trying to guess what the majority of people will say.
Anyone can play the game on "The Q" app, but Stream's main goal is to sell the games to publishers, who could customize them for their brands.
Will Jamieson, CEO of Stream, first released The Q trivia game at the end of 2017 as a competitor to HQ Trivia, another popular game where users can tune in daily for scheduled competitions. Stream's key capability is in streaming video to large, live audiences.
But Jamieson shifted his strategy last year when he realized he could sell access to the gaming platform to publishers and other companies trying to keep audiences' attention. With the trivia game, users keep their eyes on the screen for 15 minutes, on average. Stream's customers can now build their own interactive game shows, with content specific to their brands. .

About a week ago, hangtime's trivia games are no more........some of it actually can still be in the Ringside Wrestling App, instead we get......

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

(song stops)

I'm counting on you to call this next segment......

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

Gary Zimmerman will begin the segment.

"I like watching the game show channel but I have one problem. You have the show Family Feud on TOO MUCH. Most of the other program are very good but l can’t watch Steve Harvey any more. Every time I turn on this channel he is on and then I switch channels so I don’t have to watch him anymore."

Maybe he' sided? Christine Zaptowsky gets the next one.

"Please put COMMON KNOWLEDGE back on at 10:00PM eastern time. Although I like America Says, my mom and I love watching Joey at night, which is the only time we can see him. Please change it back. Thank you."

Maybe Don Paradis takes his turn. 

"Dang you are taking all the good shows off and replacing them with the new ones that stink. No more baggage, my fav. What's up with all that?"

Making money to banish a few to late night. On to Denise Hefforn.

"I wish you would show less family feud or put that on in the middle of the night and put shows like idiotest and emogenius on during the evening hours so we can see them"

Yep. That might work. We go to Barb Dau. 

"Joey fatone or what ever his name is, is the worst. And you are beating America Says and Common Knowledge into the ground. Just like Family Feud. My God. Can you offer a little variety???"

At least a few from the 90's will help. We go on to Jason Martin.

"Watched “chase” today where the beast challenged three teenagers and won with one second on the clock, only problem is you guys restarted the clock late twice. I ran the 2 minute timer several times on my iPhone and beast should have lost between 2-3 seconds on every test."

See? The Chase here in the US was a must watch show. Let's end it with Stephanie Cervantes.

"If a team on America Says doesn’t use the skip button by the last round of questions, it’d be cool if they could earn 5 extra seconds on the clock!"

Wouldn't that be so nice?

Time for a Gamestop Game Break. Stare your eyes at this Idiotest......

We'll let you stay silent and think after this Google Play music interlude as we kick off the class of 2009 reunion with the host of this year's Billboard Music Awards.....Kelly Clarkson.

The awards show was also a game show. Games were played with members of the audience, giving away cash and prizes worth $100,000. The trophies were designed to look like buzzers.

The presenters were as follows.......

And while the Grammys were on the subject of crossover performances, this had......

It even featured this infamous moment in the ceremony.

There were even special tributes to Monty Hall, Bob Barker and Mark Goodson, but trying to be like the MTV Video Music went out like a light. But there's one award ceremony ongoing......The GSL honors. It'll all take place in December of this year, so keep it on this blog for more.

That's it for this week. Today's consolation prize is.....what else? Tickets to the Avengers movie!
