Chico: Welcome back to the... how you say...
show...we've reached playtime with Jason, Alex, and Josh
Gordon: Well, now that he
got that out of the way, it's time to distribute the
whammies. Everyone open up your Whammy bags and lets see
which one you've got.
Chico: I got a car! No, wait.. Wrong show.
Jason: I got a Flokati Rug! I automatically lose! :p
Josh: I just got a headache.
Gordon: I got the Bowling Whammy - I'm Bowling for
Bucks...and it's a Strike!
Jason: I got.... the Liberace Whammy???
Gordon: NO comment. Chico and Alex?
Chico: I've got the Coffee Whammy. Because I'm
Gordon: Do you have coffee beans in your pants?
Chico: No comment.
Alex: I have the Hockey whammy.
Chico: Okay, Gordon, what do we do with these Whammies?
Gordon: Your whammy, Josh?
Josh: I hit Big Bucks. Be on your way.
Jason: ....you got an extra spin, there. Pass it to me!
Josh: I'd like to pass my spin to Jason.
Josh: And comment about how ridiculous I feel :)
Jason: Big Bucks.....STOP! Awww (Whoooo, whoooo). I got
Josh: I honestly don't even know most of the names of
the Whammies or I'd play along.
Chico: Just stick him with Fang and let's get going.
Gordon: Josh - I give you Fang the Whammydog. Chico.
Josh: Now, is this the mature, grown-up game to get us
away from the sandbox? ;-)
Gordon: Here's what we do with them - we will be having
a selection or people or shows. Your job is to sic your
whammy on the one that needs to get one.
Chico: Okay... the execs at Millionaire or the execs at
ABC for Play for a Billion. Both had some success, but
were mitigated by more setbacks. Which one
was the worst?
Alex: Execs at ABC. I must be one of the few that
feels the Millionaire changes weren't THAT bad - Albeit,
the new money chain needs a tiny bit of work.
Chico: That's really the only complaint I have, too. I
just needed a related choice.
Alex: But PFAB was much much worse.
Josh: I thought Billion was better this year than
Gordon: Play for a Billion was pretty weak this year - I
have to go with the majority. Next up - The Donald or
Mark Cuban. Which one do you send a Whammy
Alex: MARK CUBAN
Chico: The Donald. I actually LIKE Mark Cuban.
Alex: Actually, can I send it to both?
Gordon: no - Only Jason has 2 whammies
Alex: But The Apprentice is original at least. The
Benefactor is basically Without Prejudice, with a
reality twist - and for a lot more money.
Chico: Funny, Alex. I said the same thing.
Jason: Mark Cuban. :p
Gordon: I don't understand why I should care about two
people I don't know playing a game of Jenga. Lack of
character development is bad. I toss my Whammy in Mark
Alex: ABC needs to do something badly.
Gordon: They do a lot of things badly - like air TV
Alex: lol, yeah
Chico: So apparently me and Mike Klauss are the only
ones who like the Benefactor.
Alex: Regis needs to save them again.
Chico: True... The set designers of Balderdash I or
Balderdash II. For reference, II is the glittery set.
Who gets a Whammy?
Alex: Balderdash 2, no doubt. They can't seem to find
a happy medium. Balderdash 1 was too bare. Balderdash 2
is too glittery
Gordon: Can I toss the whammy at the celebrity
Josh: Have fun.
Jason: I toss both my whammies at both of them.
Chico: Please, do.
Gordon: Fire whammies! Wheeeeee!
Alex: Best set PAX has ever made was On The Cover, but
best game was Dirty Rotten Cheater.
Gordon: DRC blew chunks.
Alex: I loved DRC.
Chico: Reel to Reel?
Alex: Don't make me relive that.
Gordon: I think my favorite Set was The Liar's Club -
the 70's Version
Chico: More lights. Okay, Gordon, I'm blind here. More
Gordon: OK. Tuesday from 8-10 features Amazing Race, Big
Brother, Last Comic Standing, World Series of Poker, The
Next Great Champ, King of the Jungle 2
and Dream Job, while Thursdays from 8-10 has Survivor,
The Apprentice, CSI, Extreme Makeover, the WWE and the
OC. Which time slot do you send whammies to the
Chico: Hard to choose.
Alex: Let me erase WWE from my mind
Chico: On one hand, show overload. On the other... the
Alex: Send the Whammy to Thursday. Tuesday is better.
Chico: Have to side with Alex. Mostly because of CSI.
Gordon: Which time slot has the better shows, Jason?
Jason: Obviously NOT Thursday. :p
Gordon: What don't you like on Thursdays?
Chico: Extreme Makeover, the WWE. Don't care that much
for the OC. Tru Calling, on the other hand...
Gordon: lol - so we send the Whammies to Thursday night
Chico: Right. There are two more CSIs to make up for
Jason: BOTH whammies to Thursday. Heck, ALL whammies to
Chico: It's a Whammy infestation.
Jason: Not only because they are crappy shows, but it's
the reason I have a life. :-p
Gordon: Sorry Donald and Jeff Probst. Next question,
Chico: File this one under horribly mismatched cohosts.
CBJ's Alex Borstein or Fake Out's Tina Malave. Apologies
if I've done this before.
Alex: I often get jokes via email about GSN's show
Alex: But that's on Spice TV, Not GSN. I was waiting
for Craig Kilborn last night, so I turned on TV Guide
and Alex Borstein was on. They made each guest,
Andy Dick and her, say what they are currently on. She
completely left off Celebrity Blackjack.
Gordon: Fake Out Sucks. Next Action Star didn't suck,
but it wasn't good. Let's whammy Tina.
Alex: As much as I love Fake Out, Tina is just bad.
Alex: Alex is not only funny, but shares my name. She
Gordon: Alex doesn't really fit in CBJ, but she does
Alex: CBJ wouldn't be as funny without her.
Chico: She's the female Dave Foley.
Chico: So Tina, don't open any red boxes in the near
future. One more, Gordo.
Gordon: Who gets the last Whammy - Jay Mohr or Julie
Alex: Julie Chen
Alex: Jay Mohr is at least kinda funny
Jason: *tosses whammy in Jule's direction*
Gordon: Jay Mohr grates on me like cheese and is just
Chico: Julie Chen.
Gordon: He needs a new skit - or maybe its LCS overload.
either way. He needs a whammy.
Jason: This was kinda a toughie for me, but I can
tolerate Jay better than Julie.
Chico: Not for me. Jay's funny. Julie's a soulless
destroyer of planets.
Gordon: You equating Julie to Galactus?
Chico: Wouldn't you?
Gordon: Well, I don't really see her as eating
contestants. Roseanne, on the other hand...
Chico: Not contestants. Just their souls..
Gordon: ok - The Whammy bag is empty. We need to reload
for the Big Five, where we get into shows that are
really deserving of Whammies. Commercial please.
Chico: Big Five is next. Jason and Alex, you're
