Title: A few GSN Schedule Notes
Post by: xavier45 on August 17, 2007, 08:47:23 PM
According to Zap2it, Starting September 1st, H2's weekend 10:30am slot will be replaced with Family Feud with Dawson. Also they are showing for the 6:30pm airing of H2 a "To Be Announced". So from the looks of it, GSN may have lost the rights to H2. According to the GSN schedule area, they show that Body Language is airing Late Sunday Night at 1am. So if this is true, Playmania may be getting its airings cut.

I remember back in 2005, GSN.com claimed that Match Game '90 was airing at 2:30 A.M. on a certain day, and that turned out to be an error, so take GSN's showpage listing with a grain of salt

Since the redesign of their site a little while back, the scheduling system active on GSN's site has been one of the site's most reliable features - including those little blurbs at the top of show pages with the scheduling details.  It mentioned the return of Combs' Feud before anything.

That said, given that it's showing *Body Language* in place of Playmania, you have to ask if this isn't just some sort of one-off stunt. Or who knows, maybe people *are* beginning to turn away from the call in and lose shows.

Steve Beverly has now confirmed the schedule for the Late Sunday/early Monday schedule. In the place of Playmania is the following:

12am: Super Password
12:30am: Double Dare(Trebek)
1am: Body Language
1:30am: All Star Beat The Clock(Hall)

This looks like a great schedule. I much rather have this than that stupid Playmania show. Nice job GSN.

Wow -- if this is indeed true, it actually kind of smacks of GSN's pre-"Dark Period" sked in '97. DD had some late night airings, as well as ASBTC.

And yet, smacking of the "Dark Period" may arguably be an improvement.

I remember there was someone new coming into one (or more) of GSN's top positions.  Do you think that may have something to do with the recent influx of awesome?

Helpful hint: if "a lot of people you know" believe something, and those people frequent a board that has been known to punish members for posting correct information, you should give it an extra thought at the very least.

But you've got the right attitude for dealing with mistakes.  Take a deep breath, admit it, and try your best not to do it again.  That's all we can ask. :-)

Oh I know, I'm fine with that, I've been humbled quite a lot on this board, and have admitted to my stupidity. It's just when people have to add in the extra snarkage ("/wow") that just makes me question why they have to be using high school taunting and sarcasm. They really shouldn't HAVE to. It's cases like that that made me want to not post here until February of 2006. Oh well, C'est la vie. I was very much wrong in that one. :)

Well we have even more schedule changes. These changes come from Zap2it.

The 3pm Blockbusters is being removed for Family Feud with Dawson. Blockbusters will now be on Weekends at 10:30am only. But there is nothing in the space for the 5pm slot. I wonder what is going in there.

The 6pm weekday slot will now be more "Millionaire.

The 3:30pm airing of Lingo will be the only airing Lingo gets on weekdays. 7pm will be the new season of That's The Question, and 7:30pm will be Camouflage.

All these changes happen on September 10th.

Somehow I think this move cancels out what is going to be happening late Sunday nights. Sucks for Blockbusters and Lingo and kinda sucks overall compared to other recent moves.

You mean a show that GSN has shown the full run of numerous times, and an original that has enough reruns on other days, automatically nulls the move GSN did for Sundays?

I don't care about what GSN does at 5 P.M., honestly. As long as the Sunday Midnight-4 A.M. schedule stays put, I don't care what they put on weekdays at 5. That change is awesome...I haven't seen much of Hall Beat the Clock, and Double Dare is a favorite of mine.

Maybe they'll surprise you and pick up Family Feud Challenge instead.  Why is it such a bad thing?  Isn't the Sunday night block a decent enough tradeoff?

I find it hard to believe that there is only going to be one episode of Lingo per weekday.  I don't disagree with the reduction, but it just seems a little out of character.

Maybe we'll get lucky and get something that hasn't been in the rotation (recently).

Agreed, and it baffles my mind why GSN would downgrade Lingo to bring back That's The Question when the latter has not seen any airtime in months though if it did it would be major rerun abuse. I didn't have access to GSN at the time, but did Lingo take a break between their 20 Amsterdam episodes and when production started in LA, even though the amount of time between the two was a lot smaller than what's happening now?

The DVR will be busy running, since given the choice between Camouflage and Lingo I'd take Lingo in a heartbeat. I wonder if the "original to fill a hole" show will shift given how old Camouflage has gotten in a mere two months (well, just short of it).

Post by: xavier45 on August 22, 2007, 09:45:19 AM
And just when you thought GSN was done changing the schedule around, there is even more. According to the GSN pages, they now list "That's The Question" for Tuesday September 11th at 9pm.

So it seems that the show will be getting a primetime slot for its Season Premiere. I wonder if Lingo will be put pack at 7:30pm.

And it's Hilversum, not Amsterdam.  Hilversum is where the Netherlands' TV and radio comes from.  Amsterdam is where the dope and prostitution comes from.  :)

Why do I think that the new president is a fanb0i of Karn Feud? That brings it to, how many showings a week, 24? For a show that GSN probably has licensed only a season of from Fremantle, this is beyond overkill. Weird to see Camouflage totally gone, or at least exiled to weekends, after a mere two months as well, could their future be in doubt?

I'm liking the daily O'Hurley TTTT and the once-weekly doses of Trivia Trap and NYSI, but ease up on the Karn Feud!

Actually, they seem to have at least the first two seasons of Karn Feud. But seriously, 24 showings a week is WAY too many.

Not surprised about Playmania being cut down again. I know many think it's inane, but it's a fun little show- in small doses and not every day.

Good thing about O'Hurley TTTT. It will suck though when we/if we get to Season 2.

And I'm glad Now you see it is coming back. Ive actually never seen a whole episode.

If so, that was their own fault. They could have run 1 episodes nightly instead of 2.

Do you think the 9-12 block will be showing the same episodes as the 4-7 block (or something similar)?  That can't have been set up like that on accident.

Of course, this is just one more version of something that seems to be in constant flux.

As I've said before, I don't care what they do to their afternoon/primetime schedule. I'm usually doing other things anyway. I'm just glad that that we'll now even see Now You See It and Trivia Trap. This is the first time that both shows have been on the schedule in a very long time, right?[/quote]
I'm having a hard time remembering Trivia Trap ever being a part of the regular schedule.  It's also one we don't talk about much, whereas NYSI gets mentioned quite a bit.

And yes, it's really neat to see their willingness to pepper late-night with some vintage library product.  I'd still love to see a weekly home for the truly, wonderfully weird (they teased us on day one with the possbility of Peter Marshall's Fantasy, as just one example), but this is at least proving that they don't consider the lower-profile 70s-80s product toxic.

9 years for Now You See It,

Not quite nine years, I don't think, because three days hence marks my nine-year anniversary of moving to Seattle, and I didn't have my own place (and therefore, cable and GSN) until almost four weeks after that. And I know NYSI was on the schedule for at least a little while after that, because I kept forgetting to set the VCR for it.

Prolly close enough, tho.

They had NYSI on for a stint on weekends in 1999.  Lasted fairly briefly,= then they replaced it with Click. (Remember *that* show?)

Trivia Trap last aired - at all - on the network in early 2003. They ran it weekdays for a couple of months, before pulling it for Eubanks' CS.

The hate for Seacrest just makes me giggle. Because it's SO misplaced. Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but I haven't seen one indication that he's anything but really really good at the jobs he's asked to do.

A while ago we had a thread where we were talking about the slow death of the "broadcaster" as opposed to just a TV host. Bob Costas was cited as an example of one of the few remaining ones. I would put Seacrest in that list without hesitation.

I wonder if it's the fact that he works with pop music, both on radio, and with his TV show, and the fact that pop music is so heavily criticized (rightfully so). I agree that he's a very competent host, and knows when and when not to use the pop-star persona. With the right format, he could do very well.

And I've said for years that Bob Costas would do very well with the right format.

It's possible. To which I say: don't shoot the messenger.

We also have quite a few change-resistant folks around these parts (to the point of screaming and pounding their little fists when the least little change alters their overbooked taping schedules), and it is true that a lot of what Seacrest has accomplished has involved change: taking over for Rick Dees, Casey Kasem, Dick Clark (partially now, but eventually fully), and as the designated "fill-in" guy for Larry King after the Costas thing fizzled over the Schiavo situation. So I could see them disliking the guy for mucking up their favorite television and radio shows with, you know, progress.

Good call. I found myself forced to acknowledge that I didn't really loathe Seacrest as the host of American Top 40; I just hated what had happened to the show and to popular music by the time he took over.

That's the one they have open access to these days.  Anything from Sony, they have to buy now.  If it's really obscure, they have to convert it.  They only buy a small portion because they know that most of the viewership is hit-and-run, there's-nothing-else-on-let's-watch-"Match Game."  Why spend money when only a minute portion of the audience is actually going to watch every single one?

You may not agree with it--I know that hardly any of us do--but that's the rules that prevail.

Well, I can understand it, but it's still disappointing.  Mr. Average Viewer out there is probably not going to remember Double Dare any more than Play the Percentages; and I know this show has its fans, but how many times has Body Language been on and off the schedule?

It's good that they're airing some of these shows, but you'd figure if they wanted *somebody* to watch, they'd probably have a better chance with shows more people remember - like Joker's Wild or even Dating Game, rather than Trivia Trap.  What good is it that the other stuff just sits there?

Oh well...I guess we just keep on waiting.

Right on the ratings, but I highly disagree with your assessment on how TJW sucks badly, considering the show aired on GSN for quite a few years, and still gets aired on occasion.

Now, was it the most solid game in the world? Not at all. But for you to use a subjective opinion for the reason as to why GSN dropped it is unnecessary.

I'm pretty sure they have made it all the way through Body Language at least once.

As for Joker's Wild, it might have been true at one time, but I doubt GSN would have had it on the schedule all those years if it was doing that poorly all the way through.  Even if they were bad for a while, were Trivia Trap's that much better?

I'd love to see how the ratings for some of their other shows have been over the years.  All shows have their ups and downs.  Haven't Match Game's ratings dropped a bit after years on the network?

I always think that if they're willing to bring back certain shows, then they should be considering their whole library.  After all, some of those shows haven't aired in years, and viewing patterns do change.

Which is why I cannot get too down on Rich Cronin.  He fought the good fight and made an effort to keep GSN as both contemporary and classic, along, of course, with Bob Boden.  I woud hope that the rebranding was forced upon him--but I would've rather had that than GSN turned into AXN or going blank.

(On the other hand, no GSN might've meant that Fox Reality and Reality Central, if it had launched, might be including game shows in their programming.  Is Boden still at Fox Reality besides working on "Lyrics?"  David Lyle must be immovable if after two years on the air, there still aren't any studio game shows on the schedule--even Freakin' "Studs."  I just like to think that Bob would've sneaked a game show on the schedule by now.)

BTW, we have a couple of schedule changes for the weekends starting September 15th. Dog Eat Dog will now be on Weekends at 6pm replacing Super Password and Weakest Link. HighStakes Poker will get a replay at 7pm on Saturdays. And That's The Question will take Lingo's 2pm slot with Lingo airing at 1:30pm.

I don't believe the complete schedule was mentioned in this thread yet, and I created one for myself so I'll include it here too.

GSN late night schedule, beginning 9/10, all times Eastern. Infomercials begin at 4a as always.

SUNDAYS (Early Mondays)
12 Super Password
12:30 Double Dare
1a Body Language
1:30 Beat the Clock
2a Anything to Win
3a Late Night Black and White block (WML + other show)

MONDAYS (Early Tuesdays)
12 Millionaire
1a Millionaire
2a Blackjack
3a TAR

TUESDAYS (Early Wednesdays)
12 Millionaire
1a Trivia Trap
1:30 NYSI
2a Blackjack
3a TAR

WEDNESDAYS (Early Thursdays)
12 Playmania (2h)
2a High Stakes Poker
3a TAR

THURSDAYS (Early Fridays)
12 Playmania (2h)
2a LMaD
2:30 LMaD
3a TAR

FRIDAYS (Early Saturdays)
12 Playmania (2h)

2:30 LMaD
3a TAR

SATURDAYS (Early Sundays)
12 Playmania (2h)
2a LMaD
2:30 LMaD
3a TAR

I don't think the addition of an hour-long LMaD block at 2a from Th-Sa nights was mentioned before...

/Now to empty out my DVR because it will be full in exactly three days with shows new and old starting Sept 10...

Rather than start a new thread, I'll just put this hear.  GSN has a brand new set for the first US season of That's The Question and, I have to say, it's an incredibly nice set.  One of the best they've done.  There are four pictures below.

One (http://\"http://flashgameshows.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2007/09/show_taping_mg_9990.jpg\")
Two (http://\"http://flashgameshows.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2007/09/show_taping_mg_9958.jpg\")
Three (http://\"http://flashgameshows.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2007/09/show_taping_mg_9952.jpg\")
Four (http://\"http://flashgameshows.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2007/09/show_taping_mg_9934.jpg\")

All courtesy of GSN's publicity department.  I really love the idea of the board on the contestant's desk.  Whoever thought that one up deserves a bonus.  Has any other game show had the actual game board on the player's desk in lieu of graphics?

The new season, with actual writers, starts on September 11th at 9PM ET.

Edit: Picture 4 is fixed.  Sorry for the thumbnail.

It seems a little sparse to me, but then, what else are you gonna do? I like what they did with what they've done, though.

(If it were mine to do, as much as I like the effect of the gameboard and scores being on the projection screen in the desk (what, actual non-Chyroned scores on the podium? Perish the thought!), I'd be happier with a separate central gameboard between Bob and the contestant desk, just to make it a little less cramped.)

A little show called Who Wants to be a Millionaire came and everyone figured since it was successful, they might as well copy it.

Truthfully, I think the dark and foreboding sets for a show with a $5K top prize is just stupid.  However, I've just grown used to it and if they had to have a dark set, at least this one's very nice.  Can't be worse than Who Wants to Chain Reaction's set, and at least it doesn't look extremely tiny like Camouflage.

I donno Mark.  TPiR's set (IMHO) became dated into the '90s, and Millionaire was a fresh set kick.  Maybe with the new set coming with Drew's arrival, maybe the set designs will swing back to cheery again.

I don't disagree with you on the fact the set is dated at all.

I was thinking moreso as to the general idea that people are having fun on Price.  Sure, it has its share of losers, but I don't think the feelings are as bad on Price as they are on some of these other shows.

I wonder if the difference is just that "That's the Question" has indeterminable black space in the background while "Camouflage" has visible walls (even if they are imaginitively lit up).

Post by: BrandonFG on September 04, 2007, 05:27:28 PM
I honestly like the set. It's kinda slick, although small. I agree the game board should be placed either between the contestants and Bob, or at stage right. The set seems "lacking" with the board on the desk. However, I like it a lot more than using CG to superimpose a game board.

As for it being "dark", I consider the Donnymid set to be too dark, or the shows from fall-1999/winter-2000. This reminds me of a few sets from the 70s and 80s, which consisted of dark surroundings, highlighted by bright backdrops, i.e. Cross-Wits, Child's Play, or 80s Newlywed Game.

Well, let me say that I DO like it on the desk as something to use during play for a shot of the players. A lot. I just want to see a gameboard along with it for the players to look at instead of having them work off of monitors.

Well, here's a compromise.  Photo #4 is, I'm betting, the bonus game setup.  Why not have the player face the podium and use its gameboard?  Sure, you'd need some sort of backdrop for the player, but since there probably isn't an in-studio audience anyway, that wouldn't seem to be an intractible problem.

Yeah, I didn't see that picture until after I posted. I'm wondering if the contestant maybe *is* facing a screen of some sort with that setup. If they are, then the photos are pretty deceiving with regard to set size and it might work better than I think.

Your idea of using the podium as a gameboard is an interesting one, but I wonder if any backdrop wouldn't make the set look even *more* cramped, if indeed what we are seeing is representative of the set size.

Apparently the folks who read the initial info on Beverly's site took it to literally mean they were skipping the civilian portion of the run entirely, and starting at the Celebrity portion of the run, and it snowballed from there.

At no point was it stated by anyone providing the programming info, aside from Das Perf, that GSN was starting at the All Star episodes.

I would note, however, that the TTTT runs are separate, unlike the SP shows. It appears that the 3:30 run picks up where the primetime run ended, with the 4:00 run being several weeks behind.

Steve Beverly has now confirmed the schedule for the Late Sunday/early Monday schedule. In the place of Playmania is the following:

12am: Super Password
12:30am: Double Dare(Trebek)
1am: Body Language
1:30am: All Star Beat The Clock(Hall)

This looks like a great schedule. I much rather have this than that stupid Playmania show. Nice job GSN.
[/quote]
I absolutely love the idea of GSN running a once-weekly 90-minute block of former CBS network games that all got bumped in Des Moines during their original runs. I'm really appreciating the gameplay of Double Dare all over again (this one was imported from Cedar Rapids via cable for as long as it aired at 10 AM Central, but I was completely cut off from it at a crucial game point when CBS moved it to 9 AM and neither city got it any more). Body Language suffered a similar fate, although this is one show I can take or leave.  But the real treasure here is Monty Hall's Beat The Clock which I only caught one time during the CBS run, when I was out of town in Mason City on a Thursday morning in October 1979, where it aired over KIMT-TV.  Now if only GSN could be persuaded to obtain the rerun rights to that other short-lived CBS 9 AM game I only saw once on KIMT four years earlier!
