GSN greenlights "Hey Yahoo!"

Hosted by actor Tom Cavanaugh (The Flash, Ed), this show, scheduled to premiere this summer, pits teams of three in a battle to determine what "millions of people" are searching for on Yahoo. (*). Winning team will then advance to the bonus game to compete for the GSN-required $10,000.

(*) At this point, I presume all Yahoo searches consist of "Does Yahoo still exist?" and "No, seriously. Is it really still around?"

Plus, I'd reckon even DuckDuckGo was asking too much for license fees.
He got the binky!!!

Yahoo?  Serious? 
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.

I was laid off from Yahoo (for a second time) in April 2016 -- and most of my former team is still employed there somehow.

I hope the "round's over" sound is the Yahoo! yodel.

Sometimes at work, I need to link to a generic URL because our authoring tool is funky (welcome to Microsoft, here's your accordion), and in order to create the link you ACTUALLY want (usually to a settings page within Windows, or to launch an app), it's easier to make a link to anywhere and then edit the link in source. For no reason at all I use Yahoo.

This is literally the only time I even *think* of Yahoo in my day to day life anymore.

This GSN extravaganza will debut sometime in June. They ran a promo during the April 19 airing of Split Second.
