Whammy! Season One
« on: November 01, 2004, 03:16:37 PM »
I was surprised to catch a Season One episode this afternoon -- and of all episodes, it happened to be the first taped episode (as opposed to the first aired episode).  I hope they continue to air these episodes, as the Season Two episodes are getting a little stale to me.

I didn't catch the very beginning though... does anyone know if they reair Monday's and Tuesday's episodes on the weekend, like they used to?

Like I said on TVRules, it could've been a mistake from GSN - unless their reality shows are tanking, they're gonna throw in some surprises from game shows to please some of the folks who don't really care for the network anymore!

whammy must get decent ratings if it's still on the air... so why no new episodes with upped stakes and prizes?

Mo' Money doesn't make a show better.
Would you watch the $1,000,000 You're In the Picture?

Also, it's probably more productive for GSN to air reruns than to commence new episodes; when game shows really aren't the focus anymore.

[quote name=\'itiparanoid13\' date=\'Nov 1 2004, 06:10 PM\']Whammy is currently the lowest rated original traditional game show on GSN.  Friend or Foe ranks above it.

It is safe to say...........yes. BTW, iti, how is it's predecessor doing in the ratings? Not too great, I'd imagine, since it's still relegated to weekends.........

To keep from sounding like an ass to the GSN people, I only asked for the 6 shows they push the most currently, which are Lingo, RR, XD, CJB, FF, and MG.  Later, I asked for Millionaire, WL, and WBSM, but I doubt I'll get those.  But yeah, just out of common knowledge, it would be safe to assume that PYL is only getting around .1.

I don't think PYL would be on the air right now if it was barely registering a rating (and placed a companion show as it's lead-out). A simple "I don't know" would've sufficed. How did you find out that Whammy was the lowest rated traditional original if you only asked for six shows' ratings? Yes, inquiring minds wanna know.......;)

I asked for the order of the originals, and the ratings for those 6 shows.  Hell, Match Game is only getting a .2.  I doubt Press Your Luck is getting at that level.

*This* is the best thing I've read all day.  $1M YITP should be the new code word (ala "Woolery left Wheel") for shooting down Mo' Money Syndrome.
I'm a pacifist, and even I would like to see a little more action.
