GSN casting for two new Reality Shows
« on: December 16, 2009, 10:57:35 AM »
Looks like GSN is going back to 2004. They have picked up 2 more reality shows, Life At Stake and Bunco.

Here is the casting link for Life At Stake.

Here is the link for Bunco.

Bunco?!?  Of all the possible dice games, they pick the one that has absolutely no skill or play-along factor whatsoever?  Now, I will admit that it's fun to play in the right group, but watching it?  I think I'll return to the paint drying on my wall...

That kinda sounds like Deal or no Deal.

No skill I'll grant you. Ironically, it has a huge play-along factor.

Good lord, I won't. :) Even in the right group, you could be playing something marginally more interesting like Farkle instead.

It does? "Come on, twos!" is what passes for play-along factor these days? Is this what we as Americans have reduced ourselves to? That's about a step from the zany fun of Ow, My Balls!

I thought that was called America's Funniest Home Videos.

In reading the Bunco one, it looks like they're doing a show about a bunco group, not making a bunco game show.  I know that's no improvement.

Didn't GSN already try Games Across America?
