I didn't get the exact lyrics, but finally they altered that annoying tune they've had all summer. I wonder what the heck they have planned for the fall?

/Red October?
//Or go ahead and celebrate Christmas months ahead like the retail industry?

You know, this isn't even the *first* time that GSN has based promos around songs:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqklGZXPSFU

And the idea is just as bad in 2008 as it was in 2001.

Man, "Mars" isn't capitalized in the Match Game spot.  The commercial's only turn-off.

Guide_Angel posted on the GSN Boards that GSN will end this horrible "Catch A Game" campaign on Sunday. Let's see what they replace it with.

Maybe it's because I just watch a few of the older shows (Match Game, Password, B&W overnight) but it hasn't bothered me that much.

But if they continue running that until it gets below zero here in Wisconsin, footwear and screen may collide.
This isn't a plug, but you can ask me about my book.

I'm pretty much the same way.  I was just messing with the Prepster a little.  :)

/And besides, I prefer to think of it as Jan & Dean they're remixing.

I don't see any problem with them continuing to run it for another three weeks.  :-)

...then again, I'm currently sitting a whopping three blocks south of the Illinois/Wisconsin border, so maybe I shouldn't be too quick with the mocking.

They won't. The whole campaign will be gone on Sunday says Guide_Angel.

I always thought they were kinda cute. I've seen worse.

They don't bother me at all.

Then again, I liked the kareoke promos from 2001, so I may not be the best judge...

It's one of the least annoying things that ends up on my DVD's for a split second going into commercial. However, the graphic has too often covered up passwords (on P+) and the fourth row (on NYSI) coming out of commercial.
Protecting idiots from themselves just leads to more idiots.
