Episode 32.8 - The Alex Trebek
Sweepstakes, Part 2
Gordon: Oh by the way, I'm winning the GSNN Good Vs. Evil Bracket
Chico: ... *shreds one more bracket*
Gordon: (Waves Duke Flag)
Chico: .... *dumps contents onto Gordon's head*
Chico: Damn you, Gonzaga.
Gordon: (Spits paper out of mouth). Not nice.
Chico: Welcome back to WLTI. Thanks for being a part of our week and
allowing us to be a part of yours. Now you're probably wondering why I'm flipping this coin here.
Jason: You are Two Face?
Chico: Well... yeah. But aside from that.
Jason: Tell us
Chico: Well, we're going to play a game of heads or tails.
Jason: Sounds good
Gordon: We want to give you some ideas that some people have. You tell me
if they are thinking with their head...or tails. I'll start...
This is from Paul Jolley, when he says the women have a huge edge
because they are being hyped up from the judges.
Chico: Tails. You know why they have an edge? Because a) they're genuinely
better, and 2) people like PAUL JOLLEY.
Jason: Heads actually. Because the judges are favoring the women.
Gordon: I agree with Jason on this one. I think the judges are favoring
the women and I think they are told hell or high water to make sure a woman wins
- just like the America's Got Talent judges were told to make sure a non-singer
Jason: Gordon is SPOT ON. This has been clear since the audition rounds.
Chico: Fair enough, but I honestly think that the die was cast during
Gordon: Of course it was, but he's not wrong either. Oh by the way, how are
Olate and his boring dogs doing?
Gordon: Exactly. Same thing will happen here. Next one?
Chico: Next one...
The Sing Off returns for the holidays 2013.
Gordon: I think it's a good idea. Heads. At least they realized that
though they won't get the huge numbers, the constant sellouts from Pentatonix
shows that there is a niche audience for this that will help fund the show.
Jason: Yes. HEADS. Right show...right time.
Chico: HEADS. A show where it belongs. An audience that will watch.
Gordon: I'll take that over Take it All
Jason: ANything over THAT
Gordon: Next one...
Let's Ask America, which got renewed, will challenge the Top 4
Syndicated Game shows, in 3 years.
Jason: Wheel, J, FF and?
Chico: Well, one of them... Millionaire. So HEADS on that, TAILS on everything
Jason: Chico is right. Millionaire will move into 5th...if it lasts that long.
Gordon: I'm going to say Tails. It's a nice show, but it needs the
long-term distribution if it's going to play on that same sort of playing field.
Chico: Next one...
Simon Cowell will find the next big popstar online, saying
"[YouTube] has literally changed the music business for the good."
Jason: Heads. For all the crap people we have seen on Youtube, we have Arnel
Pineda (of Journey), Susan Boyle, Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen....etc.
Gordon: No no no no no. Tails. Cowell hasn't been able to market anyone since
Carrie Underwood. He'll find the next passing fad that will
give him lots of money. 'Superrstar'? No. When's the last time you heard Susan
Boyle on the Radio?
Jason: Doesn't matter, she sells millions
Chico: I'm going to agree with Gordon. It isn't going to work if Simon
doesn't exaggerate a bit on that. Make no mistake, TV is still his bread &
Jason: You guys are wrong.
Gordon: I think the singing genre is starting to wind down.
Jason: That I agree with.
Gordon: I think Star on the internet, I think William Hung. Or Psy. And yes, he's a Star. They made millions and good for them. Superstar?
Chico: We'll see when the Voice launches on Monday
Gordon: Next one...
With all of the Love shows sprouting up in the Summer, we are
GuARANTEED to find a relationship. Especially the one that has 3 matchmakers
Chico: How about no. Is NO good for you?
Jason: TAILS. BIG ASS TAIL
Gordon: Tails. Only because Chico isn't on the show. Because he's looking
for Love. I have love for him in NYC but he doesn't like my choices.
Chico: This is true.
Gordon: Whats wrong with Delilah Brooks? Or Coco Montrese?
Chico: (Sighs) Let's just say Gordon is not going to be my matchmaker any time
soon. Still my wingman, though.
Gordon: Last one?
Chico: Last one..
Draw Something 2.
Gordon: Tails. It''s just not TV conducive
Jason: Agreed. I Thinks 4 pics one word is more TV Conducive
Chico: I agree with Jason. TAILS.
Gordon: So that's our Head or Tails this week. More multiple choice
questions after this!
(Brought to you by Crash. Celebrities jump off the high dive
into a pool of water.... except we forgot to pay the water bill so....)
Chico: Painful. Pain. Full.
Gordon: I'd watch.
Chico: You would. But would you watch Jeopardy! if someone other than Alex
Gordon: I would, but for most people, it depends on WHO was hosting.
Hence we have This, That or the Other.
Chico: This being Alex Trebek himself, that being Art Fleming, and the other
being Will Ferrell as Alex Trebek.
Gordon: Suck it, Trebek
Chico: These names come from various sources... but mostly from an
AfterElton article. :-)
Gordon: Let's do it.
Chico: First of all, let's start with the A-line.
Gordon: That. Not a top choice, but he's capable.
Jason: The other. Not on my list.
Chico: The OTHER. Lacks self-deprecating charisma. Next....
Chico: THIS. I could see AC hosting something like this.
Jason: That. The only one of the list so far that I like.
Gordon: That. He's good, but flat. I want someone with a little more
Chico: How about...
Jason: THE OTHER. Robot and no charisma
Chico: Indeed. OTHer.
Gordon: I'd take his brother over him. That.
Chico: And finally on the A-line...
Chico: Welcome to the Big Show. THAT.
Gordon: I think he'd be a nice fit. THIS
Chico: Dan and the Danettes on the big board.
Jason: Seriously...THE OTHER. Too snarktastic
Chico: That was the A-line. Thanks leaks. Next up, the logical choices.
Jason: THIS. SO THIS.
Chico: THIS. I've always said... The once and future host.
Gordon: You've seen him host a different version of the show. He would
work. This. Next one...
Jason: THE OTHER. Not for this show. She is burned out from the last one
and wants to do news.
Chico: Good choice, but has a tendency to zone out after a couple of
Gordon: True, but I think a recharged Meredith would be a nice fit. That
Chico: She'd have to split a bottle with Alex. :-) Next...
Neil Patrick Harris
Chico: We know How I Met Your Mother will end this time next year, and
that will free him up.
Jason: THAT...but by a hair. I want to see what he can do.
Gordon: THIS. He's ready for a slot.
Chico: He's ready for a slot, but THIS slot? Not yet. THAT.
Gordon: Next one...
Chico: THAT. Good guy. Great friend of ours. Not his gig.
Jason: We heart todd..but not the right fit. THAT.
Gordon: I disagree. If you've seen him on Hollywood Showdown, he's more
of a trivia guy. I think this would work. THIS.
Chico: So we've gone through good chance... logical chance... how about
"fat chance". Next...
Gordon: That. He has the chops, but I'm not sure about the snarkyness.
Jason: Agreed. THAT. Good choice...not the right one.
Chico: Agreed. And he's tall. Plus when he's not driving around in NYC he's a
Gordon: Next one...
Chico: See Bailey, Ben. He's a natural questioner, but he's got no
Jason: Speaking of wooden...THAT
Chico: Just a collection of awkward faces. THAT.
ANYONE from the Clue Crew.
Gordon: The Other. Too green.
Jason: Yup...THE OTHER.
Chico: Ummm... NO. THE OTHER
Jason: HELL NO. OTHER
Gordon: The Other. Sorry, Dave. Last one from Chico
Chico: Last one... and here's a shocker...
Jason: THAT. He can do it, but would he leave?
Gordon: That. He could, and do a good job, but he's not stupid
Chico: That. For reasons mentioned above. Finally, Gordon?
Roy Williams. He needs something to do.
Chico: ... I'LL KILL YOU!
Gordon: Tranquillo, Papi
Chico: Sorry... I thought that was a thinly veiled dig at my alma
Gordon: Oh it is :)
Chico: That's what I thought. I'LL KILL YOU!
Chico: ... Good idea. Speed Round after this...
(Brought to you by Perfect Score... One of these men can bowl a
300. Find him and you could be on a million dollar date.... with chicken fingers
and onion rings)
Jason: And beer
(And yes, Beer)
Chico: Hell yeah.
Jason: And all that good stuff.
Chico: You want more good stuff?
Jason: I do
Chico: How about a good Speed Round stuff? And it starts.... right now.
Survivor. Whos' next? I'm going to go with Eddie
Gordon: I think we get another fan out the door. The Favorites have been
dominating this season. Eddie it is. The Voice - Any Returning Media Hoes?
Chico: I'm going to guess that at least one repeat offender.
Gordon: I bet we see a bunch.
Chico: Idol. Who takes the eight spot?
Gordon: Hey Devin! You're turn to go.
Chico: Hi! Bye!
Gordon: Splash / Apprentice / DWTS / RuPaul's Drag Race. pick one you
care about and tell me who leaves next.
Chico: ... Dancing. DL Hughley.
Gordon: In honor of the Equality Hearings this week, I'll go with the
Drag Race and Roxxy. Any emails?
Chico: Nope, you?
Gordon: None. But if you want to give us an Easter surprise, where does
Chico: It goes to WLTI@gameshownewsnet.com... or you can check us out
on Facebook, Twitter, iTunes, and Stitcher Radio. @wltiongsnn. We put good stuff
up that we can't even think about right now.
Gordon: True. And that ends the show. Special thanks to Jason Block for
joining us this episode.
Chico: Next week, we pay a visit to Usher and Shakira. I call dibs on Shakira.
She just had a baby, you know.
Gordon: She did. Her hips don't lie.
Chico: And neither will the rest of her on this season of "The Voice".
Gordon: Nope. That looks to be fun. So does the rest of the week.
Chico: Until then, for everyone at GSNN, he's Gordon Pepper. I'm Chico
Alexander. the show is WLTI. Our time is up, we thank you for yours. Game over
and spread the love. :-)
