The Geek Eats Some
Quickstep Humble Pie
geek, of course, being me. I said P. Miller would be
thrown off Dancing with the Stars but his dance
actually showed some effort! I was surprised and quite
frankly impressed. So much for any psychic ability I
ever hoped to have.
Lets move on.
Myself, and my internet-buddy Jamey, are big into the
series Beauty and the Geek on the WB. The so-called
social experiment is a great show that doesnt feature
the backstabbing and contrived drama of other series
the planned third version, which will feature male
beauties and female geeks, should be very
interesting as well.
Were in the middle of the four biggest nights of TV
this January: the debuts of 24 and American Idol. Of
course, well spend the first three or four weeks just
laughing and shaking our heads at the awful singers
(term used loosely) who decided they should audition. I
had always wondered about how all these people say that
my friends told me I could sing great. Well, some
people tell me Im a decent singer
but I have absolutely
no plans to sing in public anytime soon. I know better.
They (apparently) dont. Of course, then you have people
like Christopher Noll aka Taboo host Chris Wylde
who are apparently just hoping for TV time.
But we watch. And we love it. And FOX is signed for four
more seasons. If auditions are rescheduled for next year
in Memphis, maybe GSNN will get a video camera and be
there, just to see if we spot the next Idol.
GSNN InSites Interactive
I enjoyed your responses so much on the Deal or No
Deal hosting gig, that every two weeks, Im going to
post a new interactive question, then discuss your
responses the following week.
If youre going to be watching the first two episodes of
Skating with Celebrities, send me an email after the
show(s) and tell me what you think. Id like to hear
your impressions, and whether you think the show is a
ripoff of Dancing with the Stars. Email me at email@example.com
(Ill have a new email address probably by the next time
we do this little interactive thing). If I dont get any
responses, Ill assume no one watched. ?
The Game Show Alphabet
our Game Show Alphabet continues with E. I
thought it would be terribly difficult to find. But not
really. I couldve picked:
Earn Your Vacation
I picked The Enemy Within. A short-lived British show
(still airing on BBC America) that was once rumored to
be launched in America as well
it features one player
who is given all the answers in advance. Some might
consider the PAX series Dirty Rotten Cheater to be an
adaptation of this series.

Enjoy the week
next week Ill take you to Harlemm
obscurity is instant. And if you didnt get the
no, I didnt make a typo there. Ill explain
Jason Elliott eats Nasty Nigel for breakfast in being
a bastard. E-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org
