Nashville Squares-hosted by Bob Saget
« on: June 26, 2019, 01:20:53 PM »
According to the audience warm-up for Nashville Squares, Mark Sweet (@marksweetmedia on instagram), Bob Saget is the host.  From the pictures, looks like Marie Osmond and Gary Busey are just two of the celebs.

Country artists look to be the contestants.  Mitchell Tenpenny who is a Sony recording artist posted about it.

Should be interesting.

Other names I see include Bill Engvall and Carson Kressley. This makes me wonder how country-oriented this will actually be.

Carson I understand, but why are you surprised at Bill? He has a large following from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour (alongside Ron White, Larry the Cable Guy, and Jeff Foxworthy).

Already I loathe the set.  That seating arrangement reminds me of the MG-HS hour.  There's no "squares", just risers and seats. Blech!

I'm guessing they're basing it off the Hip Hop Squares set design, which went to a tiered setup for the VH-1 revival, as opposed to the grid used on the MTV2 season. Viacom usually keeps a similar template for its shows, based on the network. Economics and all.

I kinda like the look though...it feels more relaxed.

Exactly. Why pay for a brand new set design when you're already using it on the other network?

This set actually clues me in as to why Carson is there- for those of you who haven't seen Hip Hop Squares, it's probably the most celebrity-driven version of the show. The host, DeRay Davis, spends a lot of time interacting with the celebrities, and this set design also enables them to interact with each other all throughout the show- Carson is good at that. If HHS is any indication, the gameplay won't be the focus, as there will be some shows where they only get through two games.
I complain about some stuff, I praise other stuff, and I say "meh" to the rest...see it all at notableneurons.com

According to Randy West, Nashville Squares is taped in the same studio as Hip Hop Squares. The two share a lot of the same set pieces, they just redressed them for the new show.

It'll be neat to see what they've done with the rest of it, I like what I've seen so far.

What are those regular parallelograms behind the chairs?

Their setup is not too much different that Match Game-Hollywood Squares's setup.

Maybe Teena Marie can re-record the theme song as "Nashville Square Dance".

Unfortunately, Teena died in 2010. I did like her version that they used during the H^2 era.

Aw, I wasn't aware. That's what I get for not looking her up first. Mea culpa.
