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.


What is Willy Wonka’s Mike Teevee on Jeopardy?
March 15th, 2018 under 70s, Game Show Network, Jeopardy. [ Comments: 1 ]

On Tuesday, Paris Themmen was on Jeopardy and he was the biggest question of the night. While his name might not sound familiar to you, most of us grew up with him. Back when he was several inches shorter and he had a little more hair on his head.

Back then, he was also obsessed about being on television, and a golden ticket was going to make his dream come true. Boy was he thrilled to pieces about it. You get where I am going with this? Themmen was in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and he played Mike Teevee the only American who got the golden ticket in beloved film.

Fast forward to this week and him being on the game show. Unless you are wannabe contestant who knows everything about ’70s movies or you follow Themmen on Twitter, you were never going to know he was on the show. Neither he nor Alex Trebeck mentioned his past. Which seems odd because you think that would be the first thing they would bring up. Unless they did not know?

Either way it is so cool to see Mike Teevee all grown up and on TV. Now that I know he lives in the same city as me, I am going to be on the look out for him because Willy Wonka is one of my all-time favorite movies.

When it comes to how he did? The Oompa Loompas came to get him and sang, “Oompa loompa doompety doo, I’ve got another puzzle for you, Oompa loompa doompeda dee, If you are wise you’ll listen to me, What do you get when you’re on TV, You get a second place finish, and sixty-eight hundred to take home.” And then he turned into a bunch of particles never to be seen again until the movie’s 50th anniversary in 2021.


Samantha Markle will do whatever to get to her sister’s wedding to Prince Harry
January 17th, 2018 under Game Show Network, Suits, The Princes of England. [ Comments: 1 ]

This Sunday at 7p, GSN is going to air Cover Story: Meghan Markle, The Prince and the Game Show Model. The documentary will feature several exclusive interviews about the future Mrs Prince Harry including one with her half sister. Samantha Markle told them that she is not estranged from her younger sister, only by distance. She also talks about what it was like growing up with an interracial family and how they did not see it that way.

When it comes to May nuptials, she said, “I never for one minute thought I would not be at her wedding,” adding, “And I would do whatever I had to do get there.” Hopefully, she will be invited to the big day.


Game Show Network, of all networks, is doing a Meghan Markle doc
January 11th, 2018 under Game Show Network, The Princes of England. [ Comments: none ]

When you think of Game Show Network, you do not necessarily think they would do a special documentary on Meghan Markle, future wife of Prince Harry, but it makes sense that they are doing one on the American who is set to become British Royalty in May.

Before she suited up for Suits, she was a suitcase girl on Deal or No Deal. Therefore on January 21st at 7p, GSN is going to air Meghan Markle – The Prince and the Game Show Model. The one-hour documentary will follow her modest upbringing to game show model to actress to future duchess. Her life story and path to royalty will be told by entertainment experts, family, and those who knew her. People like her stepsister Samantha Markle, friends who knew her before she was famous, the owners of the yogurt shop where she worked at as a teen and her fellow models on Deal or No Deal. Larry King will also be part of it as he compares her to Prince Harry’s mother Princess Diana. He has interviewed both ladies.

Now don’t you think it makes sense why they are doing a one-hour special on the commoner turn fiancee of an English Prince.

If that is not enough Markle for you, then you can watch a Deal or No Deal marathon of her episodes earlier that day starting at 9a.


GSN’s Emogenius makes me ☺️!
June 14th, 2017 under Game Show Network. [ Comments: none ]

Emojis have taken over our phones. So much so, that some people actually text in just Emojis. How well can you speak Emoji? Find out tonight at 9p on GSN’s new game show Emogenius.

Each week, Hunter March will test two teams knowledge how well they know how to read Emoji. All for the chance to win $10,000.

The first round, each team is given a scenario where two people are texting each other and one answers in Emoji. They have a :15 seconds to guess. If they do not figure it out, the other team gets a try at it.

The second round they have to guess a clue from an Emoji. They have three chances, but lose a dollar amount with each line of new Emoji.

In the final round, one team member has to get the other one to guess a clue with the help of 14 Emojis to choose from.

The winner of third round goes on the championship round. This one is like the third one, but the partners go back and forth trying to get the other one to guess. If they guess 5 answers in :60 seconds, they go home $10,000 richer. If not, they text the other one things like 🖕 and 💩.

Emogenius is not only fun to watch, it teaches you how to understand Emoji. Let me know tell you, it is not easy as you would think. Or maybe I just suck at it. Hopefully, after a few episodes of Emogenius I will become fluent and you can too.
