A note to those playing "Wheel of Fortune"...

Posted Image

With apologies to Jesse Jackson, this is not the right time to call for an "N". But the contestant did - and got an awkward silence for it.

I've always enjoyed Family Feud, Jeopardy!, and Wheel of Fortune. I also LOVED those dramatic trivia game shows from the late 90's/early 2000's. Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Greed, 21, Weakest Link.

I loved watching GSN until Cablevision pulled it off digital basic and onto the sports package. One of the many reasons I hate James Dolan and root against the Knicks and Rangers.

I enjoyed those too - I feel like that fad will be all over "I Love the 2000s" when that comes around. I don't watch TV much, I like "Deal or No Deal" but essentially it's just a game of chance mixed with some negotiating.

It's like watching the hellish undead creakily shuffling their way out of the flames of a liposuction clinic dumpster fire.

Story B: Red Wings go undefeated and score 100 goals in every game. They also beat a team comprised of Godzilla, the ghost of Abraham Lincoln, 2 Power Rangers and Betty White. Oh, and they played in the middle of Iraq on a military base. In the sand. With no ice. Santa gave them special sand-skates that allowed them to play in shorts and t-shirts in 115 degree weather. Jesus, Zeus and Buddha watched from the sidelines and ate cotton candy.

I've always been a big Price is Right fan, and thanks to GSN's reruns, I just about grew up watching Match Game and Family Feud (both 70's versions). I also find myself watching Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? often.

Also, anyone remember Win Ben Stein's Money? That was a great show, too.

I liked the old game shows where the hosts were drunk and hitting on the wives, and everybody was smoking.

When I was in England, I watched one episode of "The Cube"

I also came across "The Million Pound Drop" and "Are you Smarter Than a 10 Year Old?" ^_^
I saw, I came, I left.

That was almost as bad as the day when someone cheated in "Shell Game". Barker chewed that lady out pretty good.

Grew up watching the $25,000/$100,000 Pyramid on USA. I consider myself a better person for it.

I actually saw this when it aired.

Prize puzzle or not, that's terrible strategy.

I've watched enough Wheel to know that most people spin it fairly consistently. I think if you paid attention, you could get into a pretty good rhythm and avoid Lose a Turn and Bankrupt pretty easily.
