ROFL! I'm setting the TiVo for that series!
Gordon: Hey Joe - I didn't know you were a reality show star!
Gordon: OK - While we are waiting for Average Joe 2005 to
start, when do we
Chico: We have a new game, it's called 5 Good Reasons.
Basically, I give out
a subject and a panelist, they come up with five good reasons
for the subject.
Then they give out a subject and another panelist. Continue
for five rounds.
For example... Gordon, come up with Five Good Reasons why
Family Feud was
renewed for a seventh season.
Mike: Give him an hour.
Gordon: Sure, give me THAT one.
Chico: Why not? You like a challenge, right?
Gordon: 1. It's loyal to the traditional one, which is a
classic. 2. Richard
Karn is the best host in the current incarnation. 3. The
special themed shows
are fun to watch. 4. You have gotten a lot of classic moments
ridiculously dumb answers. 5. It sure beats watching an hour
of Life and Style.
Rob: Believe it or not, that's what is opposite Feud here in
Chico: Heh. I like that last one. Okay, Gordon, continue on,
Gordon: How's that?
Chico: Very nice.
Ryan: Well done Gordon.
Gordon: Does the panel want easy - or a challenge?
Rob: I'll leave it alone.
Gordon: No passing, Joe.
Joe: Pass. :-D
Chico: Judges? (BZZZ!)
Gordon: Joe - Give me 5 good reasons why more people should be
Joe: Anyways: five good reasons why people should be watching
Authentic UFC fights with newcomers. 2) Interesting
storylines. 3) It's right
after WWE Raw. 4) Willa Ford is kinda hot. (I like brunettes
better). 5) It beats
the hell out of The Bachelor. Literally.
Chico: Only her second game show, if you want to count "I Bet
Joe: Okay...my turn to make someone sweat?
Gordon: Yep. The choices are Rob, Ryan and Mike.
Ryan: Be nice :-) I've just gone through a stressful
Joe: Why? Did you win an auction for the Forrest sisters'
Rob: I guess that was a great birthday present for you.
Joe: Whatever happened to Jackie and Sammy anyways?
Chico: No clue.
Mike: They're in bed with me right now. BWAHAHAH
Joe: ROFL. Ryan - Gimme five good reasons Wheel of Fortune
sucks less than
Gordon: Hey! =(
Ryan: Gimme a second.
Gordon: Reality Hater.
Ryan: 1. There is more play along factor on Wheel than
Survivor. 2. No smarmy
Probst, only smart aleck Sajak. 3. I don't have to watch for
umpteen weeks to
find out who wins in Wheel. Nice and over with in 22 minutes.
doesn't have social politics as its main game frame. 5. Last
reason? I've yet to see
naked Richard Hatches on Wheel...
Joe: WHY OH WHY DID YOU BRING THAT UP?
Gordon: Well, there's an image I'd rather not have in my mind
this early in
Chico: Moving on...
Ryan: Yes but it proves my point :-)
Gordon: Rich - I'd like to buy a vowel. Pat - But you have no
money. Rich -
I'll buy it with my pants.
Rob: Control Booth: Quick, fade to black
Ryan: Ah, my pick eh? Okay... who would like to go next?
Mike: Oh what the heck.
Ryan: Okay... hold on...Five reasons why...TPIR should
continue doing prime
Mike: 1. Ratings, ratings, ratings! I believe every special
has been #1 in
its time spot.
Gordon: It has, Mike.
Mike: 2. People love Bob Barker. He's an American institution.
TPiR hasn't honored every profession. I'm waiting for TPiR's
Mike: 4. The cost of an episode compared with its rating is
unscripted show like TPiR costs a lot less than any scripted
Mike: 5. Exposure for Rich Fields. Even though I don't care
for him, any
exposure to a mainstream audience who is not home in the
daytime is only
beneficial for Fields.
Chico: Fields is coming into his own, I think... I attribute
that to writing.
Mike: I hate how he laughs at everything and you can hear it
over his mic.
Ryan: Do you think they should revamp how they give out the
big prize? I do
believe that the Aussie mega showcase is a better vehicle for
Joe: I still would've preferred Randy West, but Fields is
And he respects the fans.
Mike: It screams unprofessional to me. You never heard Rod,
Johnny, or even
the other subs laugh during the show.
Gordon: OK - Mike - toss one to Rob.
Mike: Rob, here's one I'm gonna toss to you.
Rob: Bring it.
Chico: And it's the last one, so make it a good one.
Mike: Give me 5 great reasons...why Street Smarts should see a
sixth season. Not good reasons. Great reasons.
Mike: I have standards.
Rob: 1. Frank Nicotero is really coming into his own as host.
2. Who doesn't
love to laugh at the street savants horrible answers? 3. The
contestants are just as enjoyable as the street savants. 4.
They are finally starting
to get a budget with the $100,000 Tournament. And 5. It would
St. John from producing any more really crappy docu-dateries
like Blind Date
and 5th Wheel (why did you take out Aisha Tyler).
Gordon: Very good (clap clap clap).
Chico: *Siren* I'm sorry, Rob, you used an illegal compound
word. *Dunce cap*
Gordon: Well besides the illegal compound word
Chico: And that is Five Good Reasons... very good round all
Gordon: And we will get to a very good BIG FINISH - right
after the Break
(Sponsored by The Price is Right - Lady of the Night Edition.
Next up - the
lovely Sasha. 24-36-24. You can have her...if The Price is
Rob: One dollar, Bob!
Mike: 24-36-24? She's shaped like a bong?
Chico: She's apple shaped. We call her Miss Applebottom.
Gordon: And with Sasha - you get a year's supply of Bongs!
Chico: Okay, not much time left, so we're going into the Big
Finish, with the
perennially late Jason Hernandez! Amazing Race. What do you
think so far?
Rob: Pretty good, worthy of the renewals.
Gordon: Excellent first episode. You have a lot of good
characters so far.
Ryan: Enjoyable - I like the change to giving out the cash
prize instead of a
vacation, just for variety's sake.
Jason Hernandez: Ditto for me on that.
Chico: Yep. I had to say "no loser trip this year" Today...
you get CASH!
Ryan: Wait, the trip is good - anything is better than those
Kodak Easy Share
cameras from a few years ago.
Gordon: You win a trip to Belize, you win $10,000, and you
CAMERAS! Hardly seems fair, does it?
Chico: YAY DIGITAL CAMERAS!
Mike: I love this edition of The Amazing Race, even though the
fat guys got
the boot on the first episode.
Gordon: AI4 - who's next to go bye-bye?
Rob: Amanda Avila.
Chico: If there is a god in heaven, Janay will go next week.
Gordon: I'm waiting for Joe's response to Rob's answer - lol
Joe: Janay's goin.' Rob, don't you be baggin' on my woman! :-D
Rob: Stop hogging them.
Gordon: Does it really matter which woman is leaving, and do
any of them have
a chance to win?
Chico: Nope. How about the Survivor? Will the Ulong get out of
Jason: *look up, Chico* =)
Rob: Knowing how Survivor usually goes, they will win both
Gordon: Ulong have no prayer.
Joe: I've said it before, I'll say it again: Survivor = teh
Gordon: They've gotten rid of two of the strongest players on
their team - I
don't see how they win without a team reshuffling.
Ryan: Which knowing Burnett, is just down the road...
Gordon: Speaking of another Burnett show - The Apprentice on
Thursday will be
doing a show promoting another reality show - Fuse's search
for a DJ. Will
the promo work?
Chico: Not that many people get digital cable, so... no.
Rob: Will go over as well as Crystal Pepsi.
Jason: ...... *look up, Gordo*
Mike: No because how many people know what Fuse is, besides
needs to be changed when you run the toaster and the microwave
at the same time?
Joe: Anybody else watch that Video IQ show they have?
Mike: Is it like History IQ?
Ryan: Wasn't Fuse MuchMusic before?
Joe: Whatever happened to Ed the Sock?
Mike: He's washed up
Ryan: He's still up here. He hosts "Fromage" - a once a year
show that shows
the worst videos of the past year.
Rob: Last year's opening theme: Sorry 2004
Gordon: With that, do we have any mail, Chico?
Chico: Sorry, Just looking at the mail. This one's from
Joe: MAIL TIME!
"Where can I find out the rating for the game show family
feud? And do you
think it will last another year? Thanks"
Jason: Maybe I might actually watch or go see a taping. I
haven't seen one in
a couple years, to be honest. (Feud, that is)
Chico: Well, first off, thanks for writing, Laudelino. We take
from numerous sources, Mediaweek, B&C, Zap2it, so you would
have to basically
take it as they come from those numerous sources...
Mike: Some of the ratings for shows can be found at Mediaweek,
Chico: And as for next year, Richard will be back.
Mike: Do we have more mail? Can we do like Karn and DOUBLE THE
Jason: lol *GASP!*
Gordon: LET'S DOUBLE THE EMAILS!
Chico: Why not. You got more mail? We've got time for some
Joe/Jason: MORE MAIL!
Mike: The slide itself has been living comfortably in a
landfill since late
Gordon: This is from Nat Dykeman...
This is Nat, I was a contestant on Ultimate Film Fanatic. I
was the Midwest
winner. Don't be surprised if you get some E-mails this week.
contestants became such good friends, we all keep in touch,
and, someone posted a link
today about your rundowns. We're gearing up for the next film
1 - 3. www.lakecountyfilmfest.com. Thanks for writing all
that, Nat Dykeman
Gordon: If you are in the Lake County, Wisconsin area and wish
to go, or if
you are interested in attending, go to the link and check it
out. Okay, time
for one more mail. TRIPLE THE MAIL!
Jason: MORE MAIL!
Ryan: Bring it on.
Hi WLTI -
I am quite a Fear Factor addict, so I wound up reading the
Gordon wrote and enjoyed it. Some thoughts: I don't think the
show ever really
was about love in the first place, but you are right it used
to be much more
interesting. Now who was gay from this season, and how do you know this? From
the few episodes I saw all the guys seemed pretty creepy. I
have a somewhat
unrelated question for you. I was watching Survivor tonight
and I am confused why
they don't seem to have clothes. Please enlighten me. - Bonnie
Mike: Sorry, my Gaydar is in the shop.
Chico: You didn't need it. There were several reports out and
Fabrice's picture on them, one of which is from a report on TVBarn, who
referred it to a Chicago Gay Pride Organization.
Gordon: As for the clothes issue, when Survivor says that you
only start off
with the clothes on your back - they mean it. The survivors
only started with
that - and since they have been cutting it off to use for
That's why for themost part they are bare - of course, most of
the guys don't mind
seeing barely dressed women. Except Fabrice - maybe.
Chico: Or Coby.
Chico: But that's another story for another day.
Gordon: Yep - If you wish to join the legion or mail people,
they write to, Chico?
Mike: Tickets c/o The Price is Right, 7800 Beverly
Chico: That would be
firstname.lastname@example.org ... 7800 Beverly
Hollywood CA, 90036.
Chico: Okay, Bob.
Mike: I think we found Rich's replacement.
Joe: Yeah: RANDY WEST!
Gordon: And with that, we end another jam-packed
episode of WLTI.
Joe: Incidentally, big ups to all the TPIR Live guys, should
they be reading
this - Randy, Todd Newton and Mark L. Walberg, especially.
Gordon: Next time - we review the new shows that premiered
over the past 2
weeks and we give you the first update of this year's Game
Joe: It's been real. See you on the next show.
Jason: CLANG! CLANG! Whoo Whoo
Ryan: Vickers... OUT! *slaps himself*
Chico: Okay, big thanks to Mike...ahem... *radio voice* Mike
Vickers, Joe Van Ginkel, Rob Seidelman, Jason Hernandez,
Travis Eberle and James
Dinan. That wasn't the show we planned on, but that's the show
you got. And
of course, thanks to you for reading. You know, we do this all
for you, and we
appreciate hearing from you.
Mike: We're done? I want more WLTI! Can you send WLTI to my
Chico: For Gordon, I'm Chico. Until next time, take it Joe...
Joe: Godspeed for now. Spread the love, and remember...
Mike: Over is this game indeed.
Jason: *whammy buzz*
Gordon: Game Over and...OUT!
