Block's Holiday List - December 12

A Merry Game Show Holiday to you!

Welcome back to the Block Party, where the weather has turned frigid...but my wallet has been working overtime getting gifts for all my fave game show friends.

But why should I leave you guys out. I have some suggestions for the reality and game show fans in your life. Most of these items can be found at, bookstore or any major toy or electronics store. Do your homework and you will be fine.


The reality show fan has a lot to look at. December 5 is the release date for "Survivor: Vanautu" the latest from CBS/Paramount Home Video. You can also buy Survivor Season 1, 2, All-Stars, Palau and Pearl Islands.

Amazing Race Seasons 1 and 7 are out on DVD. Fear Factor Season 1 is out for the Joe Rogan fans out there.

There is a "Best and Worst of American Idol Seasons 1-4" out there. If happier reality is more your can buy "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" Season 1. And one of the best reality shows out there, "Project Runway" has seasons 1 and 2 for sale. And Yes, there are some seasons of the Simple Life out there for you to enjoy.

For the improv fan, "Whose Line Is It Anyway" Volume 1 is out in both censored and uncensored versions. Also, "Wild'n Out" is available.

And for the game show fans...there is a Jeopardy DVD that was released last year. And just in time...the Match Game DVD box set is out. 30 remastered episodes. You will laugh your ______ off.


I have to recommend both "Brainiac" by Ken Jennings and "Prisoner of Trebekistan: A Decade in Jeopardy" by Bob Harris. Both men have 2nd books on the way--but don't blow by these. They are both excellent reads and perfect for the Jeopardy and/or trivia fan in your household. Also, Fantasia Barrino's Book "Life is Not A Fairy Tale" and Reichen Lehkmuhl's book "Here's What We'll Say" are in stores now.


American Idol fans have a ton to listen to over the next few weeks. Chris Daughtry's debut CD "Daughtry" hit #1 on the charts and is a great gift for the fans who thought he should have won. The man who won, Taylor Hicks and Fantasia Barrino have new CD's out the 12th of December. Kellie Pickler released her debut CD--"Small Town Girl" on October 31. If you still haven't gotten Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood's CD, go get those. And Jennifer Hudson is about to explode onto the scene on the soundtrack to "Dreamgirls: The Movie" which comes out on the 5th.


DVD Games are hot hot hot with versions of Deal or No Deal, TPIR, $100,000 Pyramid, Family Feud, Newlywed Game, and Let's Make A Deal all out now on DVD for family play. There are board games for Deal or No Deal, TPIR, Newlywed Game and Family Feud. DoND has a PC Game, Handheld Game, Card Game and a board game out. And if you want to play Simpsons Jeopardy or can do that too!

I think I may have stretched your wallet enough. Happy shopping!
