Title: Feast of Favorites 2003!
Post by: Pyramid80 on October 03, 2003, 06:30:23 PM
The moderator Guide_Angel on the GSN boards replyed to a post Feast of Favorites 2003 and said that voting begins October 13th.  It is looking like our hopes have come true again!!

Dangit.... I was banned so I can't vote... LONG LIVE \"FANTASY!\" :-)

But seriously, anyone wanna bet it'll end up being the same as last year's, minus TTD and TJW plus Cram and Funny Money?

EDIT: Guide Angel said, in jest [I hope] \"It won't be 21 hours of GSN Video Games!\" ...why do I fear that'll show up in there?

It wasn't rigged.  Otherwise, TJW and TTD would not have been on there, let alone TJW #2.  That's so bass-ackwards bizarre it *has* to be legit.  

I've got a feeling that this year will skew more classics.  Mainly because the SOS of the 7 originals has GOT to be wearing thin by now, especially for all but, oh, 2 or 3 originals (Which WOULD be down from last year)

I don't think it was rigged by GSN, but it certainly wasn't scientific. Not that I'm saying it was supposed to be. It is what it is and that's a gimmick.

And c'mon...what's with people shouting twit? Can't we just argue civilly?

 Exactly, and I expect that aside from maybe one or two surprises like last year, everything will be from what's on the current schedule (because that's all the voting population is familiar with).

As a bunch of people said after last year's \"train wreck\", it would be more scientific if GSN showed one episode of everything that's up for voting, but we all know that would NEVER happen.

 My apologies then.

But the people who complain day in and day out about GSN not showing *their* favorite show; thus hating the network gets really old...as do the people who contend the marathon was rigged; forgotting that the rest of the country votes too.

I will not be voting for WWTBAM even though it is my favorite game show that GSN has. My reasoning is that since it is on the schedule, we will see the episodes anyway.

 Hey, look... yet another way to keep the results inaccurate.  And posting it in public, too.

All the Feast of Favorites is, is a way for GSN to make the viewers think they actually listen, while killing a day of programming and allowing their marketing department to get some practice.  And it gives us some discussion, because some people don't understand that this unscientific poll has no bearing on network decision-making.

GSN cannot listen to us because our wishes are contrary to what is best for the network.  I'm sure they'd love to give us 100% of the Recommended Daily Allowance of TJW and TTD, but it's simply not profitable.

Can't we just vote for our favorite game shows and allow the actual favorites to be shown during the Feast?

Oh please. I would rather see shows for just one day, that are not on the schedule now. What in the world is wrong with that? Jeesh. I do not care if GSN listens to me or not. I just want to see a show I haven't seen in years.

I am not telling anyone how to vote. You can vote for your favorite show if you want. Go for it. Most of the general public will be doing just that anyway.

Just do not criticize me for the way I vote and I will not criticize your way of voting. As you said it is unscientific anyway, so the results are not accurate anyway, correct?

Tim

P.S. Why am I getting a lesson in what is profitable for cable television? Where did that come from in my original message? I was not criticizing GSN.

You know it seems that some people on this board tend to easily attack someone who they do not agree with, does anyone else notice this trend lately? We often forget there are real people on the other side of that screen.

Actually, following the tradition of Cartoon Network of Thanksgiving being the only time they show such horrors as \"The Three Robonic Stooges\" and the 70s \"Tom and Jerry,\" I would like to see a Game Show Turkeys marathon for Thanksgiving, starring \"The Fun Factory,\" \"Celebrity Charades,\" \"The Diamond Head Game\" and everyone's favorite, \"Burt Luddin's Love Buffet.\"

Oh yeah--\"Camouflage.\"

In what way is advocating classics a way to make it inaccurate? It's going to be inaccurate anyway, or as I've said before unscientific. Why not make it in the hardcore gamers favor?

Besides, if it's on the ballot, it's fair game, is it not? They're saying that they're willing to stunt it one time on this one day only, so if enough people vote for TTD or Play the Percentages or TJW or Bullseye, then they are promising to show it.

And I'm sure no one (or not many) expect more than that. We get a one time airing and it'll be a nice little holiday treat. I, for one, am advocating making that treat as palatable to us hardcore gamers as possible. Is that a crime?

 No. But if you think that GSN is going to take the results of this poll literally and show everything that comes up on it in the order that it comes up, no matter what the result, you are being somewhat naive, that's all.

[quote name=\'Timsterino\' date=\'Oct 5 2003, 09:12 PM\'] Oh please. I would rather see shows for just one day, that are not on the schedule now. What in the world is wrong with that? Jeesh. I do not care if GSN listens to me or not. I just want to see a show I haven't seen in years.

I am not telling anyone how to vote. You can vote for your favorite show if you want. Go for it. Most of the general public will be doing just that anyway.

Just do not criticize me for the way I vote and I will not criticize your way of voting. As you said it is unscientific anyway, so the results are not accurate anyway, correct? [/quote]
 Just because the poll is unscientific doesn't mean that it should be abused.  You're supposed to vote for your favorite show out of the ones they have on the ballot, not vote for a show you because you haven't seen in a while.  The fact that it's unscientific and last year's votes were likely inaccurate doesn't mean that it has to be the same way this year.  If everyone voted for the show that was their favorite -- the question of the poll -- it would still be unscientific but would at least be accurate.

And hey, let's include legitimacy here.  Why should GSN listen to us if a portion of us is going to take a simple poll and attempt to mess with the results?  A group of people who vote for Fantasy and Winning Streak because it's not on the current schedule deserve exactly the zero respect we currently get.

Truthfully, I don't give a toss about the results of this, just like last year.  But that doesn't mean that I can't say it's pointless and immature to try and skew the vote for selfish purposes.

Score five points for creative use of the word \"palatable.\"

However, what you're advocating is purposefully trying to skew the results to please a very, very small minority of fans, a number of which will never be happy with the results.  If something rare makes the list, there'll be clamoring for it to be on the schedule.  If nothing rare makes the list, there'll be complaining about how the poll is unscientific and how GSN is squelching the true votes and tinfoil hat this and tinfoil hat that.

We make up the extremist part of the game show fan spectrum.  We could at least try not to act like it.

It is your opinion on how I am supposed to vote. Everyone may vote which ever way they please, as you may. It is an opinion poll. Fantasy is a favorite of mine. I am not voting for it just because it is not on the current schedule although that is one of the reasons. The poll is \"Feast of Favorite(s)\". They allow you to vote once a day (at least they did last year). It does not mean you have to pick one show and stick to it.

It is pointless and immature to think that the poll actually represents a true top game show list, because it does not. It does not include every game show ever made. Now that would be a list.

BTW, what is selfish about voting for your favorite show(s)? Everything! That is the whole purpose for the poll!

Yes, perhaps I am being naive. However, it's one of those things that doesn't hurt to try, so why not see if it can be done? One day not so long ago, MTV had to play \"Hangin' Tough\" by the New Kids on the Block on TRL because a bunch of kids thought it would be funny to do it and see if it could be done. I'm not even suggesting a prank. I'm suggesting doing like the AARP and voting in a bloc so that something interesting (to us) gets aired.

If everyone voted for their favorite shows, then things like J! and WOF surely will get the lion's share of the votes because of their popularity. So, the rest of the marathon is to be filled with the odd show or two that people felt compelled to vote for. IIRC, didn't Bumper Stumpers make it on last year? Why can't we vote as a bloc and get NYSI or Fantasy or Play the Percentages on?

And so what if people want shows on? That's not going to stop due to a silly marathon so it's certainly not a reason not to do this. And who cares about accuracy? It's not going to be accurate, it's not going to be scientific. Legitimacy? It's only legitimate because GSN says it is. Let them decide to change the places of things if they want. If they do so, then I would ask why they bothered asking in the first place.

I doubt we'll affect the top of the list. MG will probably still be up there as will FF and PYL. What I'm saying would probably only change one game near the bottom of the list. I mean, why can't we try? If we make it, then we get a treat. If not, well, better luck next year.

Game show extremists? You make us sound like we're at jihad for game shows. Passion should not be mistaken for blind fanaticism. Why should we be heard more than ordinary fans of GSN? We shouldn't. We should get the same number of votes allowed everyone else. I just advocate using those votes as intelligently as possible, is all. Besides, GSN once asked us to accept Extreme Gong into our hearts, why can't we ask them to accept Extreme Fan into theirs? (Nevermind that we didn't accept EG into ours)

In the end, Dan, it sounds like you care a lot much more than your post says. If you didn't care, you'd wish the project (which I admit has a very minute chance of even coming together much less working) luck and be on your way. From where I sit, methinks you doth protest too much.

Agreed.  That's what's lacking from GSN today.  In the old days, sometimes on Thanksgiving or other holidays, they'd show the more obscure stuff just for the day - just like many of the other cable networks do.  It was a nice treat for fans to see that sort of stuff - and I'm sure that on holidays they don't have most of their regular audience anyway, so why not?  You can't live by the exact same thing all the time - it's nice to mix things up once in a while.

I wonder that if shows like \"Joker's Wild\" make it on the list again this year if GSN will realize it was no fluke and finally relent and put it on the schedule?

Personally, if we do decide as a group to vote for one rare show, my choices would be either \"Bullseye\" or \"Break the Bank\".

That may be, or it may not be. I can only speak for myself, but I can say unequivocally that I couldn't give a single tin one about the results of the FoF, much less two, but that doesn't stop me from having an opinion about it, and the belief in my convictions to argue that opinion with passion.

Again, the mere statement that we are \"rigging\" this election is actually your opinion. How is voting for your favorite show(s) rigging this election? The whole purpose of this poll is to see your favorite shows up there. So again, I ask how is that rigging anything? . Was my post \"C'mon guys let's all vote for Fantasy!\" No. My post stated that I was voting for Fantasy because I could see WWTBAM any day of the schedule.

Again. What is wrong with a voting for a show that you have liked in the past because it is not on the schedule? Nothing. It is not like I am rallying the troops to vote for my show. I said nothing of that sort. I think if people have more than one favorite and one of them happens to be on the schedule then they should vote for the one they want to see more. Again, I can see WWTBAM seven days a week so why would I not want to vote for a show that I can see for one day only? What you are stating about it being wrong is only in your opinion. While I will respect your opinion, I do not have to agree with it. I almost feel like it is telling a Democrat to vote Republican because voting Republican is the right way to go or vice-versa.

Yeah. I'm not advocating rigging anything. All I'm suggesting is that we vote smartly. If you don't want to, you don't have to participate, just don't accuse me of cheating. I will vote no more than the times alloted me by GSN.

The AARP does nothing more than what a political party attempts to do. They advocate a position or a candidate and urge people to vote in that direction. I'm not suggesting that they are good or bad or whatever, I am just saying that the idea of voting as a bloc has been historically and continues to be effective.

I'm also not suggesting that people vote for shows they don't like. I'm merely saying that it's better to vote for a favorite that's rarely seen than an episode of Match Game that will be rerun for the umpteenth time or an episode of WWTBAM that will be on the regular rotation anyway.

I accuse them of \"rigging\" it in only one sense, and it was self-evident:  \"PYL\" and \"Whammy\" were separate entries, while Pyramid was only one entry.  Likewise, IIRC, Password was a single entry.  They probably assumed that PYL and Whammy would each get enough votes to make the list (and they were right), giving them a full hour of original programming instead of a half-hour of classic and a half-hour of original.  In retrospect, it probably helped Pyramid and Password as well, although not enough in Password's case.

I too am glad to say that I voted.  But today, it was for TTD.  Tomorrow, it's going to be TJW, and Thursday, I'll be marking the ballot for Bullseye.  Repeat process until voting closes.

 Small Talk was a Grundy Production in association with Pearson, as per the end credits of the show. GSN has it as it was part of the FAM games library they got once the Family Channel was sold to Fox in 1997-98, but for whatever reason it did not appear on last year's Feast ballot.

Well, I think it's time that GSN "hits the Bullseye," don't you?  That's going to be the show I vote for every day.

Hey, with as many of us "stuffing the ballot box" as there are here, do you think it actually has a chance this year?  (It finished in the top 15 last year, right?).

BTW, my predictions for shows (in no particular order):

Lingo
Funny Money
WinTuition
Russian Roulette
Friend or Foe
Whammy
Cram
Match Game
Family Feud
Press Your Luck
Who Wants to Be a Millionaire
(probably) Weakest Link

I am, of course, being optimistic that we get at least one B-E show on there, but I think this will probably be how it looks (after last year's votes, I don't have much optimism right now).  How about you?

I am definitely for doing that.  I think that is about the only way that we can get a rare classic in the line-up.  I am not cracking on anyone, but the younger crowd on the boards especially the GSN boards are pulling for RR or F or F.  I think these boards appreciate the classics more and actually care about what is going to be aired.  This is about our only chance to make something happen.  I really want to see Bullseye and GO.

 I don't consider myself throwing things at people.  I just think for the one's that want to see classics should stick together and try to accomplish something.  If you decide to vote one way that is fine and if we want to vote another way that is fine too.  People want variety and with us having the opportunity to have variety for 12 hours, it gets ruined with the same stuff over and over again.  I am just hoping for something different to be on GSN for a change.

Part of the problem is that it seems all of us have different ideas of "rare" shows we'd like to see on the Feast of Favorites.

For me, it would probaby be "Break the Bank" or "Bullseye", but I've heard a lot of people might vote for "Go", which I don't really care for.

If we all do vote for "rarer" shows, they might end up splitting the vote and not making it to the Top 12.

That's sad.  That's really sad, especially when this is supposed to be a democratic voting system!  :)

Anyway, so, about the actual voting, well, to almost guarantee a vault show, it would be wise for all of us to vote in a block (I keep remembering "Bullseye" and "Bumper Stumpers" making the top 20 last year!), but that's not right, especially since everybody's idea of a "vault show" is different.  I think that, if we just vote every day like we have been, especially since MANY are voting for "Bullseye" and "GO!", there's still a chance that we may see one of these two (it's the former that's gettin' all my votes!).  Hopefully, though, thericker will post the list again like last year before the actual marathon just so I know whether to set my VCR or not.

Here's hoping that GSN "hits the Bullseye!",

I only voted one day thus far - for "Chain Reaction", but I'll vote more and mix it up a bit with the classics...

Well, thus far, I have voted for "Headline Chasers", a very underrated game from the 70s, created and hosted by Wink Martindale.  King World, who originally syndicated this game, put this show to lead into the local news for the most part.
Now years later, a show called "The Challengers" came out and Buena Vista, who syndicated the show, did the same thing, since this game was topical and dealt with news items of the day.
Sadly, both "Challengers" and "Headline Chasers" lasted only one season.
I intend to vote again for other shows, and I would like to see a mixture of what GSN has on now and what it doesn't have.  Hope for the best!!

 I for one have never seen much of Bullseye.  I did however see part of the pilot which was such bad quality I didn't care to watch any more of it.  Since so many people want to see it, along with myself, I am alternating my votes between Bullseye and GO.  I really hope that GO makes the countdown this year!

 A lot of it, I think, is that it was a VERY GOOD (albeit long) front game, with a great strategic element to go along with the knowledge quiz...do I stop here and take the money, or keep going and possibly lock myself down to a longer contract than I want to next time?. It's also entertaining to watch because the set was very representative of its time (and sadly the sort of thing you don't see these days).

I agree. All three members of the B-E Trilogy [TJW, TTD, Bullseye] did the strategy thing to some extent [TJW w/ the different valued categories; TTD with the 3 in a row element] but out of all 3 shows, Bullseye did it the most.

Were Password and Super Password treated differently last year?

Neep. Password Plus and Super Password were lumped into the whole "Password" category.

 I'm sure there are some that would vote for Jeopardy! 1978 versus the current J! run if the runs were treated separately, or would vote for 70s NYC Pyramid versus 1987-88 $100K if those runs were treated separately, but oh well.

[quote name=\'tommycharles\' date=\'Oct 25 2003, 04:42 PM\'] You know - I don't remember the commercials for this last year (correction...I didn't have GSN last year), but the Feast commercials show all the GSN originals and Family Feud, and then invite viewers to vote for their favorite shows.

Any guesses as to what we'll see? [/quote]
 A 70s Newlywed Game clip is also seen in the promos. Newlywed didn't make the top 12 last year. Expect to see Cram, Lingo, and Whammy!, Feud, and MG7x among the top 12 methinks. What they could do is take the top 24 shows and show one ep. of each(lower the number a bit if Twenty One, Greed, and/or Weakest Link make the cut, as those shows only have hour long episodes available). We'd be more likely to see some lesser-known or at least lesser-seen shows if they did that.

One good reason I think as to why the various runs of Password & Pyramid were all lumped together is for variety's sake; suppose all the versions of Pyramid in GSN's holdings made the top 12...that'D be 4 whole hours of essentially the same show! Same story for Password.

It's fairly understandle as to why GSN would make an exception and make its original program a seperate entry from the original Press Your Luck.

Maybe I missed it, but has anyone entertained any possible theories as to why The Gong Show isn't on the ballot again? Even though there are at least 12 shows missing, that one would have a shot at making the top 12.

Hmm, I say.

I'll go out on a limb and say that there's probably only going to be 2 slots that will be up for grabs...the rest will be Feud, Match Game, Whammy, PYL, Lingo, Millionaire, Cram, WoF, J!, and Squares (Bergeron)--not in that order, of course.

(EDIT: totally forgot about Pyramid...looks like the almost uncertainty is down to just one slot)

Going to be interesting to see if Millionaire will dethrone Match Game for the top spot.

J! and Squares didn't make it last year. I wouldn't count on it this year, either.

 My guess would be the ever-present problem of clearing music. -_-

See, music clearance issues crossed my mind almost immediately after I clicked "Add Reply." However, they DO after all have the $1.98 Beauty Show on the ballot, and for years it was in the same boat as The Gong Show.

I doubt 2 episodes would sink their financial ship, especially since they ran a 4 hour marathon of episodes multiple times within the past year.

Ah well.

 Even though I voted Go all the way, I wouldn't mind if Bullseye got in, as I've never seen a full show.  (I may have caught a few minutes in a store once, but it wasn't on in the area where I lived at the time.)

 Yes, yes it was. You get megakudos from me. Thanks also go to PeterMarshallFan whose idea it was to adopt Bullseye.

I can't believe TJW made it, too.

 At the same time, I give PeterMarshallFan a thumbs down.  I only got one solid response (that being from Chris Lemon) as to why Bullseye is such a great show.  I would appreciate a little more feedback on why you think this show is worthy of our attention.

 Maybe because Chris pretty much summed up what I would have said?

Bullseye had an exciting front game, exciting [albeit long] endgame, good host, and an amazing set to boot.

More in detail:

The front game was good for the reason Chris gave. There was a huge amount of strategy involved, as you could lose it all by getting yourself into a contract you couldn't fufill if you didn't bank the money in the pot at the right time. The bullseye contracts also added another angle, as you could run up a few hundred in the pot, then blow a question because you didn't stop and leave it wide open for your opponent to take.

The endgame, admittedly, was in the same vein as the TJW and TTD endgames, but was superior to both, IMO. It was exciting when two of the windows were covered by Bullseyes because that ever-threatening Lightning could still be under the last open one.
