Episode 32.16 - Week of Champions: Part 2
May 27

Jason: Not enough Celebrity!
Chico: More celebrities!
Gordon: MORE MORE MORE! Gordon and Chico and Jason back here again. Thanks for being part of our week and allowing our week to be part of yours.
Chico: Now we're going to Play the Percentage.
Jason: A ha
Gordon: Chico, please start iuus off.
Chico: Right.

Adam and Blake still have three singers on The Voice. Usher and Shakira... one. But they're good ones. What are the odds that either of them survive THIS WEEK?

Gordon: Well you're only getting rid of 2 people, so 90%. There's other peopele on Adam and Blake's team that aren't as strong as the front runners.
Jason: I will go 75%. For Gordon's reasoning
Chico: I'm going to go with 80%. Like I said, the best on Usher & Shakira's team are still in it, and there's still one or two stragglers from the veterans' squad. Amber Carrington...
Gordon: True, but I don't see both of them on the same episodes getting shut out
Chico: That would just be ... killer. Not in the good way either. Next up...

Mike Darnell is gone. How much of his library that hasn't been aired is going to see daylight on FOX?

Jason: 20%. There will be more that have his fingerprint on it.
Chico: About 15 percent. They need hits. The new stuff isn't hitting.
Gordon: Usually when a new head comes in, they go their own direction and phase out the old shows and materials. Hence, I think only the cream of the crop Darnell has will see the daylight. I'll go with 35%.
Chico: Sounds good. Next..

Crowd Rules is a big flippin' fail on CNBC. What is the percentage we see all the produced episodes at their current time period?

Jason: 100% they have to burn it off somehow
Gordon: 100% Burnoff + Summer no Main Sweeps = expendable time filling programming.
Chico: I won't go all-in on this just yet. I think next week will tell the tale, but when you have 2/3 the population of Eau Claire, Wisconsin watching.... 95%.
Gordon: Next one...

The Experts is a very well made game show on Youtbe., What are the chances a TV station picks it up?

Jason: I will say 25%
Chico: It would probably be an IFC or an FXX. Definitely not an Esquire... they're trying to steer away from the geek market. Geeks have money, too you know... Anyway, 25% sounds about right
Gordon: I'd LOVE to see this show get reformatted and picked up by GSN. 40% on GSN.
Chico: It won't be on G4 because after this summer, G4 will no longer exist.
Gordon: Which makes me sad :(
Chico: Me too.
Jason: Me three
Chico: But for me it died a long time ago when Adam Sessler was fired.
Gordon: And Chris Hardwick moved on
Chico: BBC America... you's my woman now.
Gordon: Next one...

What are the odds that Let's Ask America gets expanded into more markets for season 2?

Jason: 95% This is their year.
Gordon: 90% If it's still around, you have to expand it.
Chico: You have to in order to expand the revenue. 98%.
Gordon: Last one...

Hearing about the current hubbub on judge changing, what is the percentage of judges on this season's Dancing With the Stars that return on next season's Dancing With the Stars?

Jason: I will say 66.6%. Carrie Leaves
Chico: 33.3%. So does Bruno.
Gordon: I'll go with 33% also. They seem to love Goodman.
Chico: The old fuddy duddy.
Gordon: We drag in the toilet next - after this!

(Brought to you by the Ineligibles. We bring the people that can't play any games because they know too many producers and pit them against each other. Starring Travis Schario, Ben Ziek and Gordon Pepper.)

Jason: HA LOL
Chico: Nice
Gordon: Just a rule of thumb. Don't challenge a producer at a game he created and then beat him at it. He will remember it and use it against you on a future project.
Jason: (falls off chair laughing)
Chico: Yeah. There's a story we can't tell behind that. Don't worry. It wasn't that funny.... I'm kidding. it was the FUNNIEST STORY EVER!
Jason: HA!
Gordon: Shut up. (Wheels in Supertoilet 8000a)
Jason: New Model?
Chico: A fancier button and a larger screen
Gordon: It's swaggy.
Jason: Lets do it. Explain the rules for those who dont know
Chico: Sure thing. We have to gauge how a should would, should, and could do. If we like it... PUSH IT (that's four stars) or PASTRY push it (three stars). If not, JIGGLE (two stars) or FLUSH (one star or less)
Chico: If all three panelists flush... that's why we have this giant plunger.
Gordon: Not so shiny.
Chico: No. First up...
