GSN's "Hellevator" Returns
From the Futon Critic
GSN, the leader in game
shows and competitive entertainment, announced today its
horror-themed game HELLEVATOR returns for season two
with a special four-week network event, just in time for
the Halloween season, with all-new spine-chilling weekly
episodes, beginning Friday, October 7 at 9:00 PM ET/PT.
HELLEVATOR is produced by Matador and Blumhouse
Productions, in association with Lionsgate.
Jason Blum, executive producer and master of the horror
genre, whose company, Blumhouse Productions brought the
world the "The Purge," "Insidious," "Ouija" and
"Paranormal Activity" franchises, now presents a
terrifying, genre-bending series that dares a team of
four friends to ride a haunted elevator into the depths
of an abandoned slaughterhouse. With $50,000 at stake,

by one of the "Seven Deadly Sins" (Pride, Envy,
Gluttony, Lust, Wrath, Greed and Sloth). In addition to
the psychological terror players will face during their
quest, they must also endure the wrath of the show's

Catch "Finding Prince
Charming" on Logo
From TV Line
TV’s gay bachelor has
officially been outed.
As revealed in the exclusive introductory video below,
the star of Logo’s upcoming dating series Finding Prince
Charming is Robert Sepulveda Jr., a 33-year-old
successful interior designer from Atlanta who is as
strapping as he is busy.
“I travel a lot for work, I have my own non-profit, I’m
starting a home collection line, I do a lot of things,”
he explains in the clip. “So I need someone that has a
similar schedule.” And, in a perfect world, that someone
in question would be “sincere, honest, humble [and]
loyal,” he admits, adding that while “good-looking is
always great” it’s more important for his potential
partner to be “sweet and loving” with “great family
As previously announced, the Lance Bass-hosted program —
set to debut sometime in September — “will include 13
charming and gorgeous suitors, all housed together, who
compete to win the heart of one of the nation’s most
eligible gay heartthrob. The sexy suitors grapple to
stand out from the crowd all hoping for a moment of
intimate connection, romance and, perhaps, true love.
One by one, the suitors are eliminated until the
heartthrob chooses one ideal man to sweep him off of his
feet and commit to an exclusive relationship.”
Sepulveda, who was born in Puerto Rico, confesses that
he’s not looking forward to partaking in Finding Prince
Charming‘s version of the rose ceremony. “I’m nervous
about eliminating the guys,” he sighs, “because I know
that everyone is trying to find love as well. And I’m

Blankety Blank is Blank
UK "Match Game" Set to Return
Funnyman David Walliams is
to be unveiled as the new face of Blankety Blank.
The Britain's Got Talent star, 45, will front a
Christmas Special of the cult game show, TV sources
confirmed to the Mirror last night.
Presented by the late, great Sir Terry Wogan between
1979 and 1983, the show was last seen when hosted by
Paul O’Grady’s alter-ego Lily Savage 14 years ago.
Now the rotating seating grid, catchy theme tune and
awkward ‘chequebook and pen’ prize are apparently on
their way back, thanks to the recent craze in reviving
old TV formats and the recent craze in creating really
bad new ones.
A source told the Sunday People: ‘Blankety Blank was
such a huge hit in the 80s and ITV bosses want to

Final Season of "Deal or No

From the Guardian
Noel Edmonds’ game show Deal
Or No Deal has been axed after more than a decade.
Channel 4 announced the studio version of the game show
will finish after a final series in the autumn, but the
presenter is to take it on a tour of the UK’s famous
landmarks later this year.
Edmonds denied that the show was ending and said the
tour was “the beginning of an exciting new era for
He told Press Association: “Jay Hunt [Channel 4’s chief
creative officer] and I have been working on this for
the last six months and now the logistics are virtually
finalized we can start recording the shows in some
The show has been filmed since 2005 in Bristol and
Edmonds said he was excited about now “taking the show
to the fans”.
He said: “We can go anywhere and this is something I’ve
wanted to do for years. Twenty-two boxes, a phone and
me. Where will we pop up next?”
Beginning in 2005, Edmonds has presented almost 3,000
episodes of the show and handed out £40m in prize money,
although just eight people have walked away with the
£250,000 (US$326,750) jackpot.
Ratings for the show have declined in recent years, with
it attracting an audience of about 300,000 viewers
compared with more than 4 million at its peak a decade
Deal or No Deal was based on a Dutch format by Big
Brother producer Endemol, which has been sold to more
than 100 countries since its launch in 2000.
Edmonds will remain on Channel 4 screens with a new
big-money studio game show in the pipeline and two
Cheap Cheap Cheap will see Edmonds challenge contestants
to guess the lowest price of three items in his eclectic
general store to win a huge pot of money.
The pilot for Noel Edmonds’ Sell Or Swap sees the
presenter become auctioneer as contestants bid on items
ranging from expensive antiques to a second-hand speed
boat or a never-used wedding dress.
Edmonds will also host a pilot for a second studio-based
Channel 4 game show.
Asked how he thinks viewers will react to his new
ventures, he said: “Let’s wait and see. It’s early days
and a lot of work has to take place before we go to air.
“Needless to say I’m hugely grateful to Jay Hunt and
Channel 4 for this massive vote of confidence in my
ability to create popular TV shows.”

Over a decade after it gave
fashion design a new look, Lifetime's Emmy(R)-nominated
series Project Runway returns Thursday, September 15 at

to uphold the runway legacy, this celebratory season
will take fashion to a whole new level. Get ready for a
new wave of designers to be pushed to their creative
limits as they attempt to "make it work" on the Project
Runway catwalk. Determining whether they've created a
fashion feat or faux pas will be returning host
supermodel, fashion maven and Emmy(R) Award winner Heidi
Klum, mentor and co-host Emmy(R) Award winner Tim Gunn,
with judges Nina Garcia and Zac Posen. Guest judges will
include actresses Nina Dobrev, Emily Ratajkowski, Sutton
