Because fandom is NOT a spectator sport...

Today is

February 5, 2007

Chico: Today, a tribute to all things great... and small...Great people running a show... to small people ... being the show.
Gordon: We represent...the lollipop guild...the lollipop guild...the lollipop guiilllllld
Chico: And from somewhere down the yellow-brick road, We Love to Interrupt ... is... on! What's good, alongside Jason the Cowardly Block and the Tin Woodspepper, I'm the Scareman :-)
Jason: Are you saying I don't have a brain?
Gordon: Actually, the Lion doesn't have the nerve, though in your case, we'll make an exception.
Jason: Thanks heaps.
Chico: No problem. Okay, lots of stuff to cover and we're flying by the seat of our pants, so let's get right into it with...Chico and Gordon's tribute to short people. Short people are just the same as you and I, you know.
Gordon: Except they are shorter.
Chico: But all men are brothers until the day they die. It's a wonderful world...
Gordon: Whatever. Last week, we had a short person on Wheel of Fortune. This week, they invade both Deal Or No Deal AND 1 Vs. 100.
Chico: Let's start with Deal, shall we?
Jason: Let's.
Chico: For those millions of you who were busy watching the Idol...
Gordon: (raises hand)
Chico: You cycled. you don't count :-)
Gordon: Fine. I cycled. Deal with it.
Chico: That's the plan, man.
Gordon: So...what happened on Deal or No Deal?
Chico: Wednesday night, we met Vicki Monzingo, a woman of diminutive stature. Needless to say, she was a delight.
Jason: Yes.
Gordon: Was she a small wonder?
Chico: If only that were true. As the show ended, she only had one big amount left on the board, $750Gs. Three after we hear the bank offer of...$29,000. A drop from $45,000.
Gordon: It looks like the Banker is ready to short-change Vicki.
Jason: (hands over ears) I am ignoring you, Gordon. :-)
Chico: Round three was painful, she knocked out almost $2 million worth of cases. She said no deal to that, and she'll continue her game on Monday. Now.. This is an interesting predicament....
Gordon: And with the Superbowl on Sunday, she probably is going to be short on sleep come her next episode.
Chico: That's quite enough.
Gordon: What?
Chico: Heh... Anyway, here's the interesting predicament. With 10 smallies still in play and $750,000... with three cases to open... Pretty safe bet to say that all three are going to be smaller amounts. Let's do the math. 10/11 chance times a 9/10 chance times an 8/9 chance. That's... Need paper here.
Gordon: She has a 72% chance to pick out anything other than the $750,000 on her next turn.
Chico: In that round, She has 720/990. Or 72/99...or 8/11. Or.... About 72%. Thanks, G.
Gordon: But she has a 28% chance of picking the big one, making the game boring, and having Howie speed up the rest of the game, giving her as little air time as possible.
Chico: The odds are in her favor if she plays carefully, though.
Gordon: But as the game progresses, there's a major chance she could come up short.
Jason: (hands over ears) I am still ignoring you, Gordon. :-)
Chico: This is when she remembers our rule of the singleton rounds. Should the 750,000 still be in play when there's one to open, GET OUT! GET OUT AND DON'T LOOK BACK.
Jason: Run like heck.
Chico: Run straight home and don't stop until you get there.
Gordon: If she keeps the 750,000 in play, then she will get an offer that is no small potatoes.
Chico: One more bad pun and you're going home in the short bus, G.
Gordon: Hey, don't blame me. I was up until the wee hours of the night yesterday.
Jason: THAT'S IT! :p
Chico: And whose fault is that? =p So we'll see what happens with Vicki on Monday. Meanwhile, Bob invites 100 of his closest friends to play game show.
Jason: If his friends happen to be Mensa Members, Science Fair Winners, Spelling Bee Champs and a former Kid's Jeopardy champion.
Chico: That's what I call an AG teacher's nightmare - Students who are smarter than he is. On second thought, that was all of eighth grade for me :-) Gordon, if you promise not to make any bad jokes out of their expense, I'll let you give the lowdown.
Gordon: Yes, daddy. Mitch, who was the contestant, actually played the game very well, and it looked like for a while we could be seeing the one million being given out.
Chico: "It's great to be here on "Honey I Shrunk the Mob""... Line of the night :-) So what happened to Mr. Mishke?
Gordon: The shrunken mob, however, got the last laugh as Mitch found his shortcomings on this question - What is the same with the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts? The Founder, the Motto or the Badge System?
Chico: Can we lock in our answers now, daddy?
Gordon: Yes you may.
Jason: I think it's B. The Motto.
Chico: Gotta be C.
Gordon: Mitch said C. The answer is B.
Jason: Yes.
Chico: I'll be.
Gordon: 5 kids split $94,000 while Mitch was burnt like a Brownie.
Chico: I done been outsmarted by a bevy of kiddies.
Gordon: And an $18,000 win, which is the most ever that a person from the mob wins, is no small feat.
Chico: Dude.. we're... done with that part of the show.
Gordon: That was the last one. Promise. On the second half of the show, we had a very skittish female win $72,000. Why was she skittish? Because she left 2 Moblines on the table when she left.
Chico: Skittish? That the best word for that?
Gordon: Cowradly, as in Jason's lion character
Jason: Put em up...put em up!
Gordon: DL Hughley when he thinks that The Aristocrats is a bunch of animated felines..
Chico: Needless to say, Bob had an issue with that.
Gordon: DL blames it on control malfunction. I prefer to blame it on brain malfunction.
Chico: Maybe if he was walking and answering the questions at the same time. You know they do that on Aaron Sorkin shows. It's called the "pedalogue."
Gordon: During the past few weeks, 1 Vs. 100, as well as other game shows, have promised theme nights, which just HAPPEN to be during Sweeps weeks. Amazing, isn't it?
Chico: We likes us some sweeps around here. And look... It's sweeps month! Time for a big board...

Coming Attractions... of Love

- Wedding Week on Millionaire
- Doing Charleston on Wheel
- Million Dollar Movies
- Survivor Fiji
- Champs on 1 vs. 100
- Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader

Chico: The subject: Coming Attractions... of Love. Because, you know... it's
February. The month of Valentine's.  The month of love.
Gordon: Blah blah blah
Chico: Quiet you.
Jason: It's my Birthday month and all that.
Chico: Jason's birthday. Much love there.
Jason: On Valentine's day no yet.
Chico: Okay, here's what we have this month...Wheel is traveling to Vanna's birthstate... South Carolina.
Jason: Country Music Week in a week.
Chico: That's right.
Gordon: Like North Carolina...only more normal.
Chico: Spoken like a true South Carolina Gamecock.
Gordon: Don't you be talking about my gamecock
Chico: Meanwhile over in your neck of the woods, Millionaire slots up Play to Pay for Your Wedding and Million Dollar Movie Week. Next week: the premiere of Survivor Fiji... We're looking forward to that.
Gordon: Don't forget 1 Vs. 100's $250,000 tournament of Champions, as well as the people they love to hate special.
Chico: It'll be... INTERESTING to see Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter in the same room as Annie Duke and Ned Andrews.
Gordon: And Moma the Drag Queen
Chico: And ... a nun. And at the end of the month: the world premiere of Fox's... "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader", which will prove two things.

1) Some people tend to forget 5th grade.
2) Mark Burnett can produce a traditional form game show if he wanted to.
3) You can put anything on after American Idol, and people will watch it.

Chico: ... okay, so that's three things. Point is still valid.
Gordon: Actually, I had 3 different things to prove.
Chico: Interesting. Go right on ahead, compadre.

1) Most TV executives, who got the test questions wrong, are inherent morons.

Jason: Yes.
Chico: Yeah, but that show didn't prove that. That comes with years and years of observation.

2) Mark Burnett is just as capable as any other TV producer to take a really bad idea and make it into a really bad game show which won't last a month.

Jason: Yes.
Chico: True. See Davies, Michael and 7, Studio. Hey, let's blend Millionaire and the Real World!... stop laughing.

3) Instead of actually trying to build a TV network that will have shows not named Idol and 24, the spot after Idol will once again be wasted with sensationalistic programming. Welcome to Unan1mous 2: Electric Boogaloo.

Jason: There you go.
Chico: I'll take House over Unan1mous any day. But it could be worse. Could be Perfect Eden Forever... or something;
Gordon: It could be. They could have a show about reviving a classic musical in their spot.
Chico: Grease had their first live show. In case you missed it, or, like me, were trying to put it off for as long as possible... the repeats are on opposite the Big Game. (Apparently we can't use the term that the NFL gives its world championship game of American Football... which is a bowl of crap... a super one.)
Gordon: I personally watch for the commercials.
Chico: Grease thoughts, Gordon?
Gordon: The good - the talent is actually not that bad. Austin has potential and some of the female singers are good as well. The judges are not trying to imitate the American Idol judges, which is good - but they aren't nearly critical enough on the not-so-good performances.
Chico: Other than "Now we know why Let's Make a Deal 2004 failed".
Gordon: Speaking of which: The Bad - Billy Bush. You could put a brillo pad as the emcee of the show and he would be more emotionally charged than Billy Bush.
Chico: SO you're basically wondering... where's the bite?
Gordon: You don't need bite, but you do need a reality check. you can't say that someone was decent when they were clearly not up to par with the rest of the singers.
Chico: Seems like NBC is only giving Billy the gig because he already works for them. Makes sense to me... Doesn't make for an enjoyable time, though.
Jason: Not really.
Chico: Explain.
Gordon: Watching Billy Bush be as flat as a pancake during the whole show and seeming like he was just there for the paycheck makes me even more appreciative of what Ryan Seacrest does.
Chico: Those three little words of game show hosting..."Looks easy... Isn't."
Jason: Right.
Gordon: He is happy Seacrest-lite...all the time. he doesn't chance his all. If George W. Bush has a robot cyborg that he wanted to take out and play with, it would be Billy Bush.
Jason: LOL
Chico: No comment from the peanut gallery. But yes, it makes you appreciate the gumption of an Atlanta-bred DJ found by a man of great stature..
Gordon: Thank you Chico. I'm touched.
Chico: No problem. I just hope Ryan read that.
Gordon: Oh, I thought you were talking about me.
Jason: You do have a high sense of self-worth :-)
Chico: Sorry. Anyway, if it wasn't for Merv Griffin, we wouldn't have the man we revere as the god of all media today. And it looks like Mr. Griffin is about to get another chance to change the game again, as Let's Play Crosswords goes from zero to talk of the genre in two weeks. the NBC station group is reportedly in talks to pick up the show, which would give it a firm go in Chicago, LA, and... wait for it...New York City.
Gordon: Yay! Cross-Wits comes back!
Jason: Where would you put it in NYC...?
Gordon: Hope: 10am. Probably: 2am
Jason: :-(
Chico: On WNBC4. Two slots just became available with the cancellations of Megan Mullaly and Dr. Keith Ablow-me. Hey, if Gordon could use "Van Baaarf" couple of years ago.
Gordon: At least NBC didn't Mu-llallygag on their decision to yank the shows.

(Yes, you may groan and boo now).

Chico: GROAN!
Jason: BOO-URNS!
Chico: BOO! We want Bender! :-)
Jason: Boo!
Gordon: My adoring public. See how much they love me.
Chico: Now I'm in a conundrum here. Now if my local NBC affil was still owned by the network, we'd get it. Now we have to wait like everyone else.
Gordon: You get nothing there in NC, do you?
Chico: Hey, at least we don't get Play2Win anymore!
Jason: Point, Chico!
Gordon: Do you get MyGames Fever?
Chico: Hell no.
Jason: Praise be. Your TV would have a shoe in it in 5 seconds.
Gordon: But seriously, I think if the affiliates are smart and put it in the 9am or 10 am slot, it would dominate the time period. Not because it's a good show (because I think that it's a little too much like Cross-Wits, which has failed twice), but because there's no other game show on.
Chico: Oh yeah. What's on at 9a or 10a... your Dr. Phils... Your Regis and Kellys... Your Ellens... maybe a Feud/Millionaire block or two.
Gordon: Feud/Millionaire in NYC is in the afternoons. As far as the other shows - I'd watch Crosswords over them - even Regis (sorry, Reege)
Jason: I agree with Gordon. This could be a major surprise.
Chico: But if this show was to hit... along with Temptation, which MAY ... or MAY NOT ... get a primetime berth thanks to less reliance on telenovelas... we may see the floodgates open. But remember, that's if ... and it's a BIG IF mind you, Temptation ends up being networked on MNTV. Still syndicated so far as we know.
Gordon: I think Temptation WILL get a primetime slot, because right now, they are showing two nights a week...get this...fight night.
Chico: Nice.
Jason: The telenovela 5 night a week thing tanked.
Gordon: Anyone surprised by that?
Jason: Not us.
Chico: Nope. So to MyNetwork TV... a heaping helping of crow.
Gordon: Note to MyNetwork TV. You seem to be spending a lot of money on bad programming. If you really have a lot of money to burn, GIVE IT TO US! WE can make good game shows - for much cheaper than what you have been paying out.
Chico: And the rest of the money would be spent in Atlantic City on blackjack and sushi.
Gordon: Yep. burp.
Gordon: Going Back to Grease - since we didn't finish the segment.
Chico: Sorry, we love to... yeah, you get where we're going with this. Go ahead.
Gordon: The are the songs that the contestants were singing the first night of shows.

Men -
Crazy Little Thing Called Love
Money Money
Pretty Woman
Summer of '69
Walking in Memphis
Signed Sealed Delivered I'm Yours
Women -
I Love Rock and Roll
All By Myself
You're Still The One
Why Do Fools Fall In Love
Suddenly I See
The First Cut is the Deepest
The Shoop Shoop Song (It's in His Kiss)

Gordon: Can anyone see a problem here?
Jason: Grease songs.
Gordon: Ding!
Chico: Nope. It's Rockstar all over again! We sing songs... but not necessarily RELEVANT songs!
Gordon: If you are casting for a musical, why are you not people singing songs from the musical??!! At least Idol has a weekly theme. If you didn't want to overexpose Grease, then maybe do songs from other musicals. What were the ratings for the first live show, Chico?
Chico: First live show...Drumroll.
Gordon: brbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbrbr
Chico: 4.8/8.... for THIRD; Against 60 Minutes, AFV, Cold Case, and Extreme Makeover Home Edition.
Gordon: I believe that is a drop from last week, is it not?
Chico: Yes it is. And last week was on opposite football. This week... the above mentioned. You do the math.
Jason: Grease is slipping in the ratings...
Chico: This could be a slippery slide.
Gordon: Can anyone say Broadway Disaster?
Jason: This will be a disaster. When Musicals cost millions to back...this one could be bad.
Gordon: Quite honestly, they have no one to blame but themselves. The execution is completely wrong to this. It comes out like a pale clone to Idol, whereas if you have ANY sort of creativity, this could have worked by embracing the roots of Broadway instead of masking a Broadway audition with contemporary songs we have heard 18,000 times before. You have an untapped fountain of Broadway music - why not use that?
Chico: Oh yeah. I'd kill for one round of "Not While I'm Around".
Jason: Why do you think Modern artists such as Barry Manilow and others are doing standards...the music is timeless.
Gordon: On that note, why are you trying to force Broadway voices into singing Pop Music? As we have seen time and time again, the voices don't mesh. How amazing could it have been to see them do excerpts from Oklahoma or Camelot or Oliver. 'I Still Believe' from Miss Saigon is a beautiful piece of music.
Chico: Or Ragtime. I heart Ragtime.
Jason: Or anything else. Broadway is a historical art form. Music channels on Satellite Radio devote channels to it.
Gordon: Ragtime is great. Go contemporary with Rent, Phantom of the Opera or Avenue Q.
Chico: YES!
Gordon: Instead, we get All By Myself, version #15,492.
Chico: A quick rewind...Su Kim lost... on try #3. Third time not a charm on the Jeopardy!.
Jason: Teens took the wheel for almost 300K this week
Gordon: By the way Chico, I think the Hamsters have gotten the 'When You're a Jet' from West Side Story ready to go.
Chico: That'll be cute.
Jason: With Eve singing "A Person can develop a Cold" from guys and Dolls
Chico: And me singing "You Can Be As Loud As the Hell You Want" from Avenue Q.. Okay, Gordon ... Smile for the virtual camera...And say roll that beautiful brain footage.
Gordon: Roll that beautiful Brain Footage

Doug: Live, local, and latebreaking... From the four corners of the globe to your frontal lobe, this is WLTI Brainvision News, and now here's Gordon Pepper, Chico Alexander, and the award-winning Brainvision News Team)

Chico: Okay, let's begin. First up...

Big Brother will have a little shakeup at the top this summer, as Alison Grodner, she of the as-of-yet untitled kiddie quizzer, will EP with Rich Meehan, while partner Arnold Shapiro will stay on as executive assistant. Grodner cites this as a new beginning for the franchise that is trying to get its groove back after a lackluster all-star season.

Chico: And I think I speak for everyone in this room when I say... wouldn't take much.
Gordon: Any word if the mime will be the contestant coordinator?
Chico: Sorry, Gordon. No mime coordinator.
Jason: Darn.
Chico: But hey, here's an appeal... Let's see some mixup with the contestant make up. I'm going to cite a quote James Dinan made a while back. Same people... same hair... same body... same tattoos in the same places. I was beginning to wonder if Starship was going to provide the theme. *starts humming "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now"*
Gordon: Quite honestly, the show wasn't as interesting because you knew what everyone would do. New blood will spike the ratings - but yes, let's get some interesting personalities in the house please.
Jason: Agreed.
Chico: And how about people looking to meet new people, people there to win money for a noble end... and not just "Okay, we spanned through Myspace and got these 14 people."
Jason: Right. (laughs)
Gordon: But you know that is what's going to happen.
Jason: Do tell.
Chico: But still, an appeal is better than nothing. Diversify, damn you! If you could do it with Survivor, then this should be a cakewalk.
Gordon: Could you imagine a 'rich side of the house' and a 'poor side' of the house?
Jason: Sure I could.
Chico: BB3 The Battle in the UK. Wow. That was easy.
Gordon: They could take half of it and label it 'Hollywood' and the other side and label is 'Hollywood's reality show has-beens'.
Jason: Wait A Minute---Surreal Life Fame Games.
Gordon: Gee, you think?
Chico: See how easy that was?
Gordon: Now if you could add Chyna Doll and Mini-Me to the Big Brother House as team captains...
Jason: I don't think so, Gordon.
Chico: Okay, what's next?
Gordon: Next article...

Last Comic Standing goes International, as we see them spanning the globe to get new comedians for the next season, which will be this Summer. The host will be of a more cultural flavor as well, as Bill Bellamy takes the reigns.

Chico: It's not his first job as host actually. He currently hosts "Who's Got Jokes" on TVOne. Now he gets to host what is essentially the same show... on a larger network.
Gordon: Bellamy is a more than capable host. The problem, as always, is the format of the show, where we all vote for the one that needs the money, and not necessarily the funniest
Jason: True--see Josh Blue
Gordon: What is Josh Blue up to nowadays?
Chico: *shrugs* Another problem with the format... stacking the deck.
Gordon: Dat Phan? John Heffron?
Chico: ? and ?. Alonzo Bodden, Ant, and Kathleen Madigan, meanwhile, take a break from explosive careers to judge this thing.
Jason: From reading his web page...he is booked through July doing standup on weekends.
Chico: Kathleen Madigan is on Blue Collar Radio on XM, I believe.
Jason: That's Sirius...I have that.
Chico: Ah, right. I keep getting those two confused.
Jason: And she has some tour dates too.
Chico: Alright, next up...Pack your bags, because we're Going Global.
Gordon: Wheeee
Jason: (hands you my passport)
Chico: Today's trip will take us to Australia...

It seems like Eddie McGuire's career is all but saved as 1 vs. 100 is Oz's newest quiz show hit. That and the Oz version of The Rich List scored 3 million viewers.

Gordon: Combined or each?
Chico: The premiere of 1 vs. 100 was the number one program of the night with 1.95 million. Rich List was also respectable with 1.4 million, guaranteeing that it will surpass the US version by at least one episode.
Gordon: Who was the host?
Chico: None other than Deal or No Deal impresario Andrew O'Keefe.
Jason: Very nice.
Gordon: That had to help things. We'll see if it stays there

We next go to the UK, where we congratulate Shilpa Shetty for winning Big Brother UK over Jermaine Jackson. Finally, we go to Canada, where we see that they will be getting their own version of Project Runway.

Jason: Nice. After DonD, another good NBC import.
Gordon: and now we're home.
Chico: We realize you have a choice of airlines, and we thank you for choosing WLTI Airways. We hope you have a great stay here or wherever your journeys may take you.
Gordon: Anyone for some home grown Haterade?
Chico: Why not. I need the electrolytes.
Jason: I have been supplying my own...I need to taste another flavor.

Adding on to the people who are dissing American Idol, we have...Jennifer Hudson. In another classic 'don't poop where you eat' move, Hudson has accused Idol of abusing and brainwashing her and she had to sing her way out of it, only adding to here diva-esque reputation that she earned while on Idol.

Jason: Oh boy. Not a smart move, Jenny. Not smart, when you may be about to be awarded the biggest prize in acting.
Gordon: Regardless, it's not only a classless move, but you have to think that Idol still pulls a lot of strings on who they influence. And quite honestly, in that season, she was not remotely close to the best singer in Idol 3. I congratulate her for what she has done after that, BUT she got eliminated exactly when I pegged her to leave.
Chico: Think this will have any play in her Oscar run?
Gordon: I dont know when the votes are due, but it can't possibly help. I will say that it does take some of the shine off of her luster, and that she better curb her tongue.
Jason: And since Oscars are in 3 weeks, the votes have to been in very soon
Chico: Now if I can play the devil's... or the Dunkleman card. What if she's right?
Gordon: I'm not sure if she's wrong in some aspects. Idol is an image-making machine, and Jennifer was consistently told by Cowell and others to change her image. So maybe Jennifer didn't want to do the things that she was asked to do. Maybe she thought that telling her to change was akin to brainwashing. However, if you asked me if I think her image was a reason why she left early, I would have to agree with Simon and say yes.
Chico: I'd have to imagine that they sequester the academy something fierce...
Jason: Secret votes...only 2 people know who it is.
Gordon: And even if she's right, opening her mouth right when people are about to judge you where you are already a clear underdog is not a good idea. If she loses, and loses by a small margin, you could point to this diatribe as to why.
Chico: Alrighty...
Gordon: Next article?
Chico: Now... from the dark side of fame to the dark side of e-mail. Let's Load up.
Jason: HIC
Chico: .. Thank you .

Experts at SophosLabs have warned Internet users of a new e-mail scam that pretends to be a lottery notification from the makers of the hit TV game show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire."

Jason: We get these all the time. Everyone does.
Gordon: Hey kids. This is Uncle Gordy saying that if you have to pay money for 'winning' or reveal such items as social security number, bank account number, or internet passwords, it's usually a bad idea to do so.
Chico: The mail claims that someone's won 800,000 and are willing to cut you in. There are two things wrong with that sentence.
Gordon: What's wrong, Chico?
Chico: 1) Sharing prize winnings on Millionaire is grounds for termination of said transfer of funds, and b) Whoever heard of a 800,000 question?
Jason: And this is someone who has received LEGIT winning emails for contests over the years.
Chico: This is a scam on all levels, and you'd be best to avoid it, lest some unscrupulous phone-a-friend would want to part a fool, you, from your money.
Gordon: However, if you people really feel that you have too many pieces of green paper in your wallet, e-mail them to us at
Jason: Do NOT pull a Soupy Sales on us please :-)
Chico: Elsewhere... if you're an avid player of UK phonequizzes, get ready to read the fine print. Cost warnings and chances of successes are more than likely on their way. And on our way right now... *plays "Area Codes"*
Gordon: First up on this week's Media Ho Report...

'So You Think You Can Dance' auditions have been announced. If you want to be on the show, check out for the schedules. Also check out for auditions on Last Comic Standing 5. We get the indentities of the new media hoes for Next Top Model, TIm Gunn leaves Parsons for Liz Claibourne, rumors show up and are scattered that Paula Abdul will be replaced by Courntney Love (wha?)

Jason: That was a weird rumor.

Project Runway 2's Kara Janx gets married, Paula Abdul is the Nevada Ballet's woman of the year, Richard Hatch's appeal successfully moves to the next phase, and some of the hoes that will be appearing in 1 Vs. 100's February Sweep shows include real-life "Medium" Allison DuBois, celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, Juicy J and DJ Paul of the Academy Award-winning hip hop group Three 6 Mafia, sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer, and Rabbi Shmuley of "Shalom in the Home".

Chico: Really. I could've sworn that was Matisyahu. Oh well...

And we also see the end of Lance Bass and Reichen Lenkuhl's relationship, as that split was made official this week.

Jason: Sorry to hear that guys.

Also in trouble - Supernova, of Rock Star's CBS's Supernova. Their debut album fails to make the Top 100 and some of the shows on their tour are in danger of being cancelled. According to The Post, this Wednesday night's performance at Radio City Music Hall still has eleventh-row seats for sale.

Chico: Yikes. Not EVEN nose-bleed
Jason: Nope. If you can do that a week before a show...bad news.
Gordon: But none of them are the ho of the week.
Jason: Which is...(DRUMROLL)
Gordon: This one is a little different - because it's more of a memorial. Frank Philbin, Regis's only sibling, passed away this week. We honor Frank and Regis with the award and we all send you all of our condolences.
Chico: Agreed...I believe a moment is in order... for Frank.
Gordon: A moment of silence please?


Gordon: Thank you. And that ends Brainvision, Shut it down.
Chico: Shut down.
Gordon: When we come back, we unravel more about Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader and we get jiggy with spaghetti western theater.
Chico: But first, last week on You Love to Interrupt, we asked you when we should see the next installment of GSN's Game Show Hall of Fame. The results are in...Anyone up for guesses?
Gordon: I'll say next year.
Jason: Next Year.
Chico: Wrong, both of you.
Gordon: What did the public say?
Chico: 43 percent say... next month.
Jason: Wow.
Chico: 33 percent came up with next year.
Gordon: A faithful lot, our audience is
Chico: 14 percent say before 2010...And rounding out the results with 10 percent... next century.... maybe.
Jason: LOL
Chico: Translated another way, when GSN is damn good and ready.
Gordon: And this week's question...stays with GSN...

[FrontPage Save Results Component]

You are the new programmer at GSN. Which one show do you bring back from their library?
Extreme Dodgeball
Russian Roulette
None of the above

Chico: Please vote. Remember, we're doing this for you...20 Qs and a wanted poster is next. This is WLTI, celebrating five years, three HTML files at a time.

(Brainvision is brought to you by Step Off, removing wack rappers from tha White Rapper house since... oh, January.)
