Have Kenny and Spenny patched up their differences?

They're going to take things to Extreme Dodgeball to settle it.

Will they get stoned after the match? Naturally.

Just my optimistic $.02 worth…

A few weeks ago, BUZZR sent out a survey gauging interest in a premium fan club where, for a nominal fee, subscribers would get bonuses including branded apparel and such. (I was half expecting they might announce the launch of it with this new logo rollout.) From what little I know about apparel production, you can do a lot more and get higher quality results with a basic, streamlined logo—as opposed to the basic screen-printed T-shirts they’ve done previously.

I tend to think new merchandising is what’s driving this. And that’s not the worst reason to change a logo. (Remember the rumor a while back that the Viacom networks had streamlined their logos so they’d fit better on a business card?)

And this new logo isn’t really straying too far from its roots. They’ve kept the orange ball & centered white lettering and the “Let’s Play” slogan. The GSN comparisons are understandable, but for now, I don’t think it’s the same situation as when Game Show Network became “The Network for Games.”

Although, if in 3 months BUZZR announces an aggressive new slate of original programming that includes Extreme What’s My Line and a revival of Ballbreakers, I’ll stand corrected.

To the points made here about merchandising, Buzzr's already added a bunch of new logo merch to their Amazon store: https://www.amazon.com/buzzr

Though the black shirts with the all-black version of the logo are a little baffling.

Just to clarify, what I had in mind was higher-quality than just screen-printed T-shirts: things like polo shirts, hats, etc. with an embroidered logo. From what little I know about apparel manufacturing, it’s easier to do an embroidered logo that’s more basic & streamlined, rather than one with unusual fonts and odd curvatures like their previous logo.

I guess we’ll find out soon enough if that’s their plan.
