Please tell me someone will post tonight's MG/HS to the video section since my Pluto is acting up and my register/monitor was too busy to go back and forth to the BUZZR live feed...

Thanks mondo mucho, my friend!!

I don't know that using the marquee to show the game progress would be feasible, especially going live to tape. My impression of the big light wall is that it was programmed pixel-by-pixel, rather than with anset of characters.

I always thought they should have built lights into the base of Jon's podium to show the game progress on that nine-square grid.

Having the celebrities make shapes with their arms was a good solution from a "silly fun" standpoint, but during that entire act, all I could think was, "I really hope they have a cue card off to the side with a tic-tac-toe grid drawn onto it for the contestants to look at."

I wonder how long that stopdown actually was.

I was surprised to see the big Viacom 'V' instead of the Fremantle script at the end of the Split Second eps this weekend.

edit: and it pronounced 'Vee-a-com' instead of 'Vy-a-com'

Interesting.  This same mistake was made in the "I Predict" pilot that was posted here previously.

"Vee-a-com" is by all accounts how they originally wanted the name pronounced.  Per Wikipedia's "Notes" on the original company:
Quote
The pronunciation /ˈviːəkɒm/ VEE-ə-kom was used by inaugural chairman Ralph Baruch. The pronunciation /ˈvaɪ.əkɒm/ VY-ə-kom was favored by Sumner Redstone and included in its audible identification marks following its purchase by National Amusements in 1986.

First mention of Mr. Smith being a "former" NBC show (after Gary Burghoff says "Who's Mr. Smith?"--much like most of America apparently)

And apparently Nedra Volz can traverse the stairs up to the third tier as she's only playing HS on tonight's rerun.

GARY BURGHOFF (getting booed): "Hey listen folks, you should try it up here some time! Not everyone's Richard Dawson, you know."

GENE: "Thank God for that."

Also Gary (every other HS question this week, it seems): "That's the dumbest question I ever heard!"
