Emogenius on GSN in June
« on: April 26, 2017, 10:58:09 AM »
GSN has started airing promos for their newest show Emogenius. It starts in June, no specific date mentioned. It reminds me of the classic oldie "Concentration."

A video clip in the GSN forum.  I hope someone will forgive me.

And sure, I can see a little Concentration here, but it's frankly a pretty clever little puzzle idea in its own right.  Could be fun.

This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.

Not for nothing, but this might be the first case of a host being the grandson of a host.

I got a Catch Phrase vibe from it...I do agree that it's a fun, clever format.

RemInded me of Bumper Stumpers, too. The puzzle concept does seem fun. I hope how they formulate the game is, too.

It's also prominently mentioned on his website.  For a kid who wasn't born when grandpa died in 1970, it seems to be a pretty important part of his identity.

He's a "YouTube Personality." (Insert universal "handjob" gesture here.) Pretty much anything that MIGHT link him to the slightest bit of fame or attention is an important part of his identity.

I knew there was a reason I got a crappy Fremantle YouTube game shows vibe from him. Not saying he did those shows, he just had the look.
