Million Dollar Monday gone 12/19
I don't know if this has been mentioned yet, also I don't know if it's just for this Monday or what's going on but according to the GSN Online Schedule, Lingo with Bill Engvall will be on this Monday from 7pm-12am ET.
Not a big surprise. I figured if they replaced Million Dollar Monday, that it would be Engvall Lingo... although I'd rather see some Woolery eps, Catch 21, or Inaba's 1 vs 100.
I think GSN should try old GSN originals block on Monday's.
7:00pm - Lingo (Woolery)
7:30pm - Lingo (Woolery)
8:00pm - Friend or Foe?
8:30pm - Friend or Foe?
9:00pm - Russian Roulette
9:30pm - Russian Roulette
10:00pm - Whammy!
10:30pm - Whammy!
11:00pm - Chain Reaction
11:30pm - Chain Reaction
This one probably wouldn't do well but who knows? It's worth a shot. I think it's better than a whole night of Engvall Lingo.
GSN should try something new for once.
Wait a sec, why is Million Dollar Mondays gone? I thought it was after one week, but next Monday, it'll be gone and replaced with Engvall's Lingo? Why is GSN not acting right? Maybe Blockbusters Monday would've worked so well. It'll be a marathon of Cullen and Rafferty's version. Perhaps it'll be 80's Monday, with PYL in the first hour, Bumper Stumpers and Jackpot! in the next hour, TTD and TJW in the 9 o'clock slot, WOF and J! in the 10 pm slot and Body Language and Starcade in the last hour, all from the 1980's. What do you think about that? Now back to the MDM thing, why can't viewers drive away in favor of The Sing-off, Monday Night Raw or MNF instead of endless looping of million dollar game shows? I believe Greed would've been a lead-off show by now.
The 80s idea wouldn't work. No one is being driven to MNF from GSN. What do you think they are saying, "well I was going to watch reruns of an old game show but it's not on. I think I'll watch MNF now."

Million Dollar Mondays have obviously bombed so they probably figured they might as well try Engvall Lingo insted; Engvall did pull decent numbers in the 8:00PM hour over the summer, but this was a while ago, and the same might not be true right now.

Lingo might pull off decent numbers considering its a 5 hour marathon. At this point, the smartest idea for Dancing With the Stars is to make a marathon out of it Thursday nights, and move Deal or No Deal to Monday night. Lingo can't last on Mondays. And for DWTS, Monday and Tuesday are when new episodes premiere so I doubt GSN will put episodes in there.

The schedule above would work well if Whammy was moved to 8, Chain Reaction at 9, Friend or Foe at 10 and Russian Roulette at 11 . Since Chain Reaction is going off the air I would like to see an hour of Catch 21.
