January 31, 2006
Looking ahead to
believe that January 2006 is already behind us? With
that in mind, lets take some time to look ahead to a
few events in February.
February 2nd: Survivor returns, this time
with four tribes
and the all-new Exile Island twist.
More interesting is the fact that Survivor will go
head-to-head with the juggernaut that is Dancing with
the Stars for at least the entire month of February.
Will Survivor be hurt in the ratings? (Probably.)
February 8th: American Idol goes to
Hollywood. Finally, the auditions are over, and were
done with the worst of the bad singers for the season.
Until the finale. Or until they show Crazy Dave again.
February 14th: We learn that CBS really
doesnt know how to schedule, as they place an episode
of Price is Right: Million Dollar Spectacular against
American Idol and the Olympics. Oh
and theyve been
holding this episode of TPIR since April 2005.
February 28th: Amazing Race goes back to
its roots with traditional teams and a worldwide focus.
The teams were just announced, so go to CBS.com and
check them out.
InSites Bonus Round
anyone whos ever read this column or website anytime in
the last few years knows
I am a huge fan of American
Idol. My work schedule wont allow me to participate
in our GSNN Roundtable after the show, but I still want
you to see what I have to say. And that doesnt work so
well with a Tuesday column, now does it? Details are
still to be worked out, but starting with the
semifinals, youll see my Idol Scorecard either on
GSNN or a separate site. Ill try to have it posted by
Wednesday morning each week so you can see how I think
things went. This will start with the semifinal rounds
(when Ill also have a post by Thursday morning since
there are two performance shows). We still have a
couple weeks before this starts, so keep an eye on this
column for details on how you can see the InSites Idol
this weeks Interactive request. Are you watching
Survivor or Dancing with the Stars this week? Or
watching one and DVRing the other? Send me an email at
firstname.lastname@example.org and Ill post your results here
next week. Id also like to hear your initial
impressions on the new season of Survivor as well
those in too.
Game Show Alphabet
weeks selection in the Game Show Alphabet wont have
you learning much or going back to a classic show. But
this weeks show does take this website
back to their roots.
know by now what show Im talking about, right?
promises, but with our humble webmasters help, we
may try to restore the old PTTGSP Greed page to
GSNN this year. Stay tuned.
