This game show news is so hot! How hot is it?
April 28th, 2016 under ABC, Alec Baldwin, Game Shows. [ Comments: 1 ]

It is so hot that Alec Baldwin just got a chubby over it. That’s because ABC is bringing back Match Game and he is hosting it. According to Vulture, the 10 1-hour episodes will air this summer at 10p after Celebrity Family Feud and $10,000 Pyramid hosted by Michael Strahan. The only thing ABC is missing is Hollywood Squares at 7p and then it would be a ’70s game show fan’s wet dream.
Actually I really like that we are getting a full night of game shows, and I hope that the networks will consider doing it in the regular season too. Lord knows that it will do better than what they have now for the most part.

UPDATE: ABC just confirmed the news about Match Game returning on June 26th. In the press release, they reveal that Baldwin is foregoing his salary. Why? He says that, “Hilaria and I are thrilled to donate this fee to arts related charities. And we look forward to having a lot of fun.” Normally, I don’t like him, but this one little notion completely changed my opinion of him. I wish more celebrities who don’t need the money would do things like this. Don’t you?


Good thing you don’t have to know Geography to win Wheel of Fortune
February 18th, 2016 under Game Shows. [ Comments: none ]

Wheel of Fortune is all about solving puzzles, and yesterday Pat Sajak decided to test the contestants knowledge about Geography.
David and Keri solved the Prize Puzzle Round’s puzzle that reads “Gondola Ride Through Venice,” and that meant that their prize is to go here. The host wanted to see if they knew what country they were going to and David said, “Paris.” Then he thought about that and realized Paris is a city and not a country, so he guessed again. This time he said, “France.” Which is a country, but not the one that Venice is in. Keri then asked the Sajak, “Do we still get it?” Thankfully, they do and off to Italy they will be going. And I am sure that David will never ever forget that Venice is Italy.
If this was Jeopardy, David would have to take his wife out for a very expensive Italian dinner in their hometown to make up for his error. But since it isn’t, they will just have to eat Italian food in Italy instead. Good thing the couple went on the right game show for him.


Watch all 3 Jeopardy contestants end up with a big fat 0!
January 19th, 2016 under Game Shows. [ Comments: 6 ]

During Final Jeopardy, Alex Trebeck asked the three contestants, “A 1957 event led to the creation of a national historic site in this city, signed into law by a president whose library is now there too.” Even though all of them were in the positive at the start of the round, they all ended it with a nothing because none of them guessed the correct answer “Little Rock, Ak” and bet all of their earnings.
So what happens on Jeopardy when none of them have any money left? They all go home and three new contestants will be on the next show. Is this the first time this happened? No, but it still fun to watch during the rare occasion when it does happen.


To Tell The Truth, I am excited ABC is bringing back the show!
July 1st, 2015 under ABC, Anthony Anderson, Game Shows. [ Comments: 1 ]

Hot off of the huge success of Celebrity Family Feud, ABC announced today that they are working on a new game show. Actually, it is old one because they are bringing back To Tell The Truth but modernizing it.
The show has three contestants all of whom claim to be same person, but only one of them truly is that person. Four celebrity panelists, including Betty White and NeNe Leakes, will ask them questions and then have to guess who is the real person.
To Tell The Truth will be hosted by Anthony Anderson and his hilarious mother, Doris, is going to be the scorekeeper. ABC says, she will be making fun of her son whenever she can.
The 6 TTTT episodes do not have a launch date, but ABC says it is coming soon. Personally, I am hoping ABC gets rid of their current Sunday dramas and instead does a night of game shows. The huge success of CFF proves it is worthy of being a fall show and I think TTTT has the potential to be a good fit with it.


Alex Trebeck gets jiggy with the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme!
June 30th, 2015 under Game Shows. [ Comments: none ]

Recently on Jeopardy, Alex Trebeck asked the contestants, “In the theme to this ’90s sitcom, ‘I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8 & I yelled to the cabbie, ‘Yo, homes, smell ya later!'” But the game show host didn’t just read answer, he rapped the part in quotes.
Let’s just say he won’t be switching jobs anytime soon, but it was a really good effort on his part. Will Smith would be proud.
