Tonight at 6p, Leah Remini tries her hand at hosting a game show, and she gets the grand prize for what a great she does with People Puzzler on Game Show Network.

People Puzzler is the type of game show that anyone can play. It is based on People Magazine’s crossword puzzles. Thus, if you can solve them, then you can sign up to be a contestant on the show and win $10,000. You can buy a lot of People mags with that dough.

Before you get to the final round, you have to play three rounds with two other contestants. Each round has its own crossword puzzle based on pop culture. The contestants each are given a chance to solve a clue on the board.

In the first round, they get $10 per letter and a $100 bonus if they guess three words in a row correctly.

For round two, those earnings are doubled. There is also a Wager Word where they can bet whatever amount they want. The player with the lowest score is eliminated at the end of this round.

For the third round, the two remaining contestants have to solve a whole puzzle on their own in 60 seconds. Each letter is worth $50, and they can get a bonus of $1,000 if they solve the entire one. The person with the most money moves on.

For the last round, they are given four categories with three words on them. If they can solve three complete puzzles within 60 seconds, they go home with $10,000.

It is so simple; even I can do it. Therefore, I really enjoyed watching and playing along. Something that is rare for me.

Another reason, why it is so much fun to watch is because who doesn’t want to be friends with Remini? She says it like it is. That is why she is not your normal game show host. It is nice to see someone be sarcastic with the contestants. Not in a mean way, but in a fun one. She was born to do this job. I hope we see her host more game shows. Heck, she would be great as one of the fill-in hosts on Jeopardy.

Since most of us are home now at 6p on weeknights, why not watch People Puzzler? It is better than the local news and so much less depressing. Don’t we all need something that makes us feel good about ourselves these days and is fun to watch? Now you have it with People Puzzler on GSN!


Get a clue and watch Get A Clue
January 6th, 2020 under Game Show Network. [ Comments: none ]

Game Show Network has a new game show debuting today at 4p and Get A Clue is a lot of fun to watch. It is a simple game played with two teams of four.

In the first and second rounds, each team has to pick one of the four categories on the boar. Then once they do, each member has to get the one on their right to guess the clue they are given. After they get it, they turn to the next team member until either they get all five clues or the clock stops.

For the third round, it is one team member who tries to get another one to guess the clue they are given. Each clue is worth either $200, $400, $600 or $2,000. The giving person has to decide which amount they want to play with for each word. The higher the dollar amount, the harder it is. Which makes you wonder if it is always smart to go for the highest amount.

Considering the winner of this round goes on to the finals, it does. For the final round, all four team members are back. Once again, they have to get he other team member to guess the answer. However, there is a twist. They don’t know who they are giving it to until they get the clue. If they get all answers right in the allotted time, then they win $10,000. Not bad!

As you can see, this game goes by really quickly. Even though it is a half-hour show, it only feels like a few minutes.

The best part of it being a guessing show, is watching them act out words. Rob Belushi (yes it is Jim Belushi’s son) calls them out on it all the time! Not in a mean way, but in a game show host sort of way which is endearing like Get A Clue in general.


Alfonso Ribeiro is dancing with Witney Carson on Catch 21
October 14th, 2019 under Alfonso Ribeiro, Game Show Network. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 2014, Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson danced their way to a mirrorball trophy on Dancing with the Stars. Five years later, he is back hosting a game show on GSN with his dance partner by his side.

Today at 6p, Carlton is once again holding the cards on Catch 21 and his partner is dealing them on the easy but challenging game show. The game starts off with the three players each being dealt a card. Then they have to answer a question and whoever gets it right gets to draw a card. If that second card gets them close to BlackJack, then they can freeze. If not, they can take that card and hope to get another answer correct. However, if they don’t like it, they can pass it on to one of the other two players. Whoever gets the closest to 21 without going over wins the round.

This goes on for two rounds. For the third round, only the two higher scorers move on. Then the winner of the third round goes on to the finals. In that round, they have to play three decks. They need to get all three decks to the magic number of 21. If they get one deck, they $2,500. If they bust then they go home with the $1,000 they won earlier in the game. If they get 21 again without busting, then they go home $5,000. Finally, if they get three BlackJacks without busting, then they win $25,000. Not too shabby! Better odds than Vegas!

While the questions they ask are pretty easy to answer, BJ is a game of luck. You never know what card you are going to be handed. You can get a King and an Ace, or you can get a 5, a 3, a 4 and a 10. It is going with your gut and sometimes it gets it wrong. Because of that uncertainty, Catch 21 is an exciting show to watch weekdays at 6p.

This is not Ribeiro’s first time at this table. He hosted the game show from 2008-2011. While I did not watch it then, I will watch it now because of the chemistry he has with his Partner in Crime. Ribeiro and Carson are such a good pair together, it is not a surprise that they won DWTS!

I should be honest, I do really like the show. However, I should tell you that I went to the same JHS as him and I support my old alumi. Well, minus two because of their corrupt past and present, but that is a whole other post.

Anyways, watch Catch 21 or bust!


America says America Says is the perfect game show
July 22nd, 2019 under Game Show Network. [ Comments: none ]

America Says is back for its third season on Game Show Network tonight at 9p and it is the game show that everyone can play.

It is two teams of four people have to guess what words answer a question. They even get a little help because they give them the first letter for all of the answers. For example, they asked married women something they kept from their wedding so they have to fill in the blanks for D, I and C. Those answers are Dress, Invitation and Cake. See it is very easy and yet hard. Both teams were stumped with the L which was License.

They play three rounds and the winning team goes on to final round. It is the same but harder. If they get all the answers right then they win $15,000! Not a bad deal!

Plus, John Michael Higgins is such a great host, it makes me want to be a game show host like him.


There is a lot to watch tonight!
January 14th, 2019 under ABC, Fox, Game Show Network, Joey Fatone, Mark-Paul Gosselaar. [ Comments: none ]

There is a lot of good stuff to watch tonight and the night starts early, 5:30p exact That is when Joey Fatone tries his hand of hosting a game show on GSN.

Common Knowledge asks 2 teams of three rounds of questions that should be common knowledge and the winning team goes home with $10,000. Sounds easy, but it is harder than you think. For the first round, each member guesses which of the multiple choices are the correct answer and they get more points for each member that gets it right. For the second round the whole team has to guess the answer as one. Thus, they get more points in this one, so anything can happen and anyone can win. Now it is time for the final round and they have to answer 7 answers correctly without getting one wrong. If they do it, they go home with 5 digits. If not, they go home with 0.

Not only is Common Knowledge fun to play along with, it is also fun to watch Fatone hosting it. He is a natural born game show host.

Then at 8p but over at Fox, The Resident is back. The episode picks up a little after the fall season finale.

Conrad (Matt Czuchry) and Nic (Emily VanCamp) are running into the hospital to find out how his father is doing during emergency life-saving surgery.

There is also still fallout around Chastain Park Memorial from Lane (Melina Kanakaredes) giving patients chemo treatment even though they did not need it. To make matters worse, she has just been released from jail for the murder of one of them. The first thing she does is visit Dr. Bell (Bruce Greenwood). He says that he is no longer going to help her and she blackmails him with something from his past. What is he going to do about it?

Meanwhile, Devon (Manish Dayal) is dealing with the fallout of his own after calling off his wedding at the wedding because he has feelings for another woman.

This is just a few of the lively moments from the episode where not everyone will make it to the end of the episode alive. Who dies and what ramifications will there be?

Then at 9p, The Passage debuts on Fox about how the ultimate cure can kill us all. Project Noah has come up with a cure that can rid the World of all diseases or it can it wipe out the human race. They have been testing it out on adults, but some of them have been turning into vampire like creatures. Therefore, they need a child to do the test on.

Amy Bellafonte (Saniyya Sidney), a young girl whose mother just died of a drug overdose and is now all alone in the World, is chosen as the subject. Project Noah hires Agent Brian Wolgast (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) to protect her. He lost a child of his own and feels a bond with Amy. Thus, he cannot let her be a test subject, and tries to do everything he can to protect her. Even if it means risking his own life.

He is on the run all by himself and Project Noah is using their best people to capture them. Can he save this girl that might the answer to all of our diseases or will they be caught and end the World? Each week, we will watch the two people who could save the World try to save themselves. All while learning what happens when we try to play Gd as we see the effects the cure has had on past test subjects.

Then at 10p, The Good Doctor is back on ABC. The episode picks up exactly where it left off with an unknown virus quarantining some of the doctors in the ER.

Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) is on the floor distracted by the sound of a buzzing lightbulb. Morgan (Fiona Gubelmann) is operating on a man’s bowel and needs his help. She cannot talk him out of it because she is busy with her hands in a man’s body, but she will try.

While they are doing that, Alex (Will Yun Lee) is watching his teenage son suffer an asthma attack from outside the ER and he cannot get in. Eventually, he breaks in and saves his son and calms Shaun down. That will last for just a few minutes because the virus is taking its toll on Allegra (Tamlyn Tomita). If they don’t figure out what the virus is soon, she will die. With death comes birth as Shaun and Morgan prepare to deliver a baby to a woman who is only 36 weeks along. Talk about getting a whole year of medical school in just one day. That is what they get, we get to watch it all and find out who will get out of there alive. Someone has to or we will not have a show.

Talking about life and death, Dr. Glassman (Richard Schiff) will find out if he still has cancer. Shaun was supposed to take him, so Lea (Paige Spara) has taken him instead. He is expecting the worse, and Lea asks him all about his disease. It is good for him to be with someone who is not a doctor who can help him look at the patient side of life. How will their wait together change both of their lives? That is if he has one.

It is an intense episode but shows why this show was last year’s break out it hit.
