No new original programming planned until Fall 2012
According to Buzzerblog's twitter page the other day, sources are saying that GSN is not planning any original programming until the fourth quarter of this year. For me, this is going to be a long year of not much for GSN, unless they acquire lots of new programming or get new classics.
The actual tweet read: Hearing from some sources that GSN has no long-term original programming outlook until the 4th quarter of 2012. Get ready for a long year.
Well I haven't watched a minute of GSN since September or October. If I have the urge to watch a specific show (usually Baggage, 1 vs 100, or Catch 21) I just watch them on the GSN website. Other shows are on YouTube. GSN doesn't show anything that I am interested in during the times I can watch. I am sure that by Fall 2012, A lot more people will be in the same boat that I am.
Oh joy. DWTS must have cost an arm and 2 legs.
Maybe try re-showing some older originals, Russian Roulette, Hollywood Showdown. Hell, I'd even wouldn't mind seeing The All New 3's Crowd. The network's OK, but it could use some more spice
Probably no money left for any of that. Nonetheless, aside from some schedule tweaks, DWTS wasn't going anywhere until the fall anyway at the earliest (despite what the ratings say). I wouldn't expect any more acquisitions either for the forseeable future.

Come to think of it, GSN is not producing any new original programming until late this year, and that could be because - and this is wishful thinking on my part - the network may be focusing on picking up additional episodes of Match Game, Card Sharks, and Family Feud (most likely the final O'Hurley season and maybe even Dawson's version), and maybe one or two Sony-owned shows during that time. If it takes anything to combat the monotony of the same episodes of classics GSN is currently airing, I am all for it! We don't want to see the same 400 episodes of Match Game and 200 episodes of each run of Card Sharks over and over again for 3 years, do we?
As for new originals, I don't really care for them at all.
