"It's coming" (Buzzr)

So we have a cryptic promo that's shown up during commercial breaks.  Speculate.
Some days I need Dick Clark to step in and give me the perfect clue...

I’ll let the person who found it take the credit…new logo.

That would be me. After someone on Facebook guessed it might be a new logo or name, I did some searching in the U.S. trademark database and found this, registered last month. The lightning bolt in the middle of the new logo matches the graphics in the cryptic promos.

Using a lightning bolt also is more reminiscent of the logo they used before being a tv network and were just producing YouTube game shows. (In as much as there was a lightning bolt LOL)

In case that link to the trademark search results isn't working for you, here's the image:

Is that all the promo is referring to, though? Networks don’t usually run mysterious promos for a new logo alone, unless something else is happening in conjunction with it—i.e. a blockbuster acquisition, a significant format overhaul, a new viewer participation opportunity, or the like.

That’s not to cast doubt on the new logo, though. Obviously they have it in place already, and the forthcoming Birthday Bash would be an ideal time to roll it out. But I’m thinking there may be something more going on besides just that. And granted, I haven’t yet managed to catch the promo in question, so I may be totally off-base.

Yeah, I think it's a new logo/graphics package, probably in time for their 6th anniversary.

Looks like they've already updated the logo on their homepage.

Promos I saw today indicate a "new look" starting Monday.

The new logo and graphics debuted at 8, immediately prior to Classic Concentration.
When you're at the grocery game and you hear the beep, think of all the fun you could have at "Crazy Rachel's Checkout Counter!"

Reminds me a lot of the Game Show Network to GSN transition in 2004.

And I hope that's where the comparison ends.

Have Kenny and Spenny patched up their differences?
