Left Behind

It's been a while, hasn't it?  I hope you haven't forgotten me.  I certainly haven't forgotten you.  Since I handed this place over to C&G (just sounds more official, doesn't it?), I've been pretty quiet around here.

 

Let's face it.  The shows that got PTTGSP started six years ago this fall -- has it really been that long?! -- just aren't around any more.  Well, that's not true.  Many of them are...in reruns on GSN.  

In 2001, the revolution was over.  My shows were mostly gone.  And the time to do what this site requires wasn't there anymore.  I owe Chico, Gordon, and the more than a dozen contributors to GSNN a huge debt of gratitude for their tireless work in taking what I created and making it into something bigger and better than I ever could have imagined.

I know this sounds like some sort of goodbye message.  It's not.  It's an overdue, yet timely, throwing out of kudos to people I've never actually met but who work hard virtually every day, just as our banner up there says:  for the fans.

As for me, in 2003 I moved on to another web project, working hard to make it a success.  I gave up control of that website in December; and it closed just weeks ago, in many ways a victim of its own success.

There's a difference between that project and this one though:  it's you, our page viewers, who are the judge whether this little experiment (and after six years, that's still what it is) is good or not.  It seems like you do, and I think I speak for all of us at GSNN when I say thank you for it.

And someday I'll meet these crazy people.  :-)

 

Gotta Have It

A lot of folks (read:  TV Guide collectors) are peeved about the magazine's format change and local listings depletion.  But I have to give credit where credit is due.  TV Guide has just released the "TV Guide Guide to TV 2006," which includes this fall's new series.  At a sickening near-1400 pages, it lists every show known to man.  

Best of all:  it's only $14.95!  (that's about penny a page)

So each column for the next 20 or so columns (which, at the rate I've written lately, could last until 2015)...I'll showcase one game show from each letter of the alphabet, skipping over letters where I don't find one.

The winner this time:
Almost Anything Goes (1975 - 1977, in various formats)
Hosted by Dick Whittington, Regis Philbin
also aired as "Junior Almost Anything Goes" and "All-Star Anything Goes."  

I wonder why the celebrities got away with more than kids or regular folks.  (Read the titles again if you don't get that sentence.)

See you next time.
