I'm happy to see Dancing GONE, and I hope it stays gone. I just hope they make wise decisions and diversify the game show programming that's already there...no reality garbage, but real game shows.
So, not only did GSN blow their budget on a non-game show that failed, but they want to double down and create more non-game shows that will most likely fail.
Oh, and they don't have the money to make further seasons of actual game shows, or new game shows, or to acquire old game shows, so they have to run 20 episodes of Family Feud a day.
Shows are recorded in digital format and stored on disc these days.
As for Dancing With The Stars leaving GSN, I have every reason to dance now.
Hasta la vista, DWTS. You will not be missed.
WOW I'm shocked that they are ending dancing so soon. They leased 10 seasons and only aired 2 or 3 of them (I don't watch the show so have no idea). I'm surprised they are just going to move them to 2AM-4AM like they did with High Stakes Poker at the end or Unstapled.
Glad Harvey Feud is getting a weekday slot. I think 5PM will be fine for it, since the 4PM Karn hour does so good. Should be a nice lead in for the 6PM hour.
And before you go all "Bill Nye the Science Guy" on me, keep in mind I'm a Master's Degree student with a 4.0 GPA, so yes, I know that's the temperature at which the volcano explodes. I don't want even a trace of the show left.
Upcoming Shows: Iron Maiden, Devore, September 13
Kamelot, Anaheim, September 21
This is all good for GSN, but we're seeing a lot more Family Feud now. We have three nights of it, another hour in the afternoon everyday and then Sunday afternoons it is on a lot too. But, Family Feud is a show I could watch for hours. So I don't mind.
GSN should sell the Dancing with the Stars season 4-14 to another network. They'd make money off of it. Or better yet, sell it back to ABC if they could do that.
Three Nights of Feud every week from 7pm-12am, plus on weekdays, 1 hour of Feud from 9-10am, 2 hours of Feud from 4-6pm, plus 1 hour of Feud from 12:30-1:30am.
Essentially, we're looking at 9 HOURS OF FAMILY FEUD on MONDAYS, WEDNESDAYS and SATURDAYS. Does anyone other than me see a problem with that?
9 Hours of a 19-Hour Day are spent on Family Feud. That's almost 50% of the day's schedule devoted to Family Feud.
9:30am: Card Sharks (Perry); instead of Karn
5:30pm: Syndie Deal or No Deal; instead of Harvey
1:00am: The Newlywed Game (Wilson); instead of Karn
5:00pm hour: Baggage (instead of Harvey X2)
Shorten it to two hours of Feud...
3:00pm: Catch 21
3:30pm: Chain Reaction
4:00pm: Karn Feud
4:30pm: Karn Feud
5:00pm: O'Hurley Feud
5:30pm: O'Hurley Feud
This way, it would be cut down from the 79 airings a week (starting April 16) to 60. Much better.
I'll say. And it's about time that Dancing With The Stars was gone.
Does it matter what time that Family Feud does well at?
Also, what I noticed about the schedule which I don't like at all is that 5th Grader is now "GSN new" at 6, 7 and 8pm on Sunday nights, but has same night repeats at 6pm and 7pm. The same thing happened with Harvey Feud and those repeat episodes nearly bombed. Harvey Feud will continue to have those same night repeats too, when they should show some of last week's episodes instead.
Past Videogame Marathon champions: Michelle Wie, Rob Cesternino, Marie Digby, Quentin "Rampage" Jackson and ijustine.

Good riddance. As far as them having Family Feud 3 nights a week, something I thought of is why not pick up a recent season or two of Wheel of Fortune (2005-2006 maybe) and on Saturday nights do a Wheel/Jeopardy Block.
I know in some markets they do a re-run of Jeopardy and Wheel Saturday Nights at 7:00 and 7:30 but they could wait until 8 to start the block for that night and end it at 1 instead of 12.
