Brian: LOL
Gordon: Ok - Are we ready for the New Game?
Brian: Let's do it!
Chico: Ready, but what's up with the podia?
Don: Yep!
Jason: Oh yeah.
Gordon: This is actually a game where there WILL be a winner!
Chico: So Take a Side it isn't.
Gordon: No it's not
Jason: I NEED a win....bad.
Chico: Okay. What do we call this new bastion of happy fun?
Gordon: We need four people who Loooove Sale of the Century
Chico: ME!
Brian: Me!
Jason: ME
Gordon: We'll throw Don in too, if he wants to play.
Don: Alright.
Gordon: Get ready for...The BLAME GAME!
Jason: The BLAME GAME?
Gordon: Played like the Fame Game. (Fame Game Sound) Blame Game!
Jason: Ok.
Chico: I gotcha.
Gordon: We have 9 squares on the board. You will pick a number. 6 of those spots will be questions, 2 will have points to help you catch up, and one will be a...surprise. (ooooooh)
Chico: Oooh.
Jason: Fine.
Chico: I'll drum up the SFX somewhere. Courtesy our good friend Jay Lewis. His International Game Show SFX Archive, by the way, is at Stop on by, tell'em the WLTI boys sent you.
Jason: No problem.
Gordon: Ready to play?
Chico: Ready.
Brian: Yes.
Don: Yep.
Jason: Yup.
Gordon: ok 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. Mr. Block, you select first.
Jason: Number 2
Gordon: Number #2...question. Hands on buzzers.

I was born as a blonde woman in the Midwestern United States, but when I was introduced, you remember my origin as Las Vegas. Many people said that I was to blame for the ratings going down...

Chico: DING
Gordon: Chico
Chico: Janelle Pierzina?
Gordon: Incorrect
Chico: Damn.
Gordon: (BUZZ) Out of the rest of the question, I continue...

Many people said that I was to blame for the ratings going down when I won, by a 4-3 vote...

Don: DING!
Gordon: Don?
Don: Maggie?
Gordon: THAT is correct.
Gordon: 10 points to Don.
Jason: Maggie from BB6.
Chico: At least I got the show right.
Don: Whoo!
Gordon: 5 point bonus question - was Maggie to blame?
Don: I'll say no.
Gordon: And why not?
Don: I think it was a general lack of interest, due to people in the house not being as interesting.
Gordon: That's a good answer. 5 bonus points to Don.

0 0 15 0

Jason: I like this.
Chico: I like it, too.
Gordon: Ok Don - 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. Select.
Don: I'll pick 7.
Gordon: OK - 7...question time.

I was blamed for the beginning of the end of this genre, but all I wanted to do was create a new spin from it, without being under any tycoon's shadow...

Brian: DING
Gordon: Brian?
Brian: Paris Hilton?
Gordon: Nooooo. (BUZZ)
Jason: DING
Gordon: Jason?
Jason: Kathy Hilton?
Gordon: Nooooo. (BUZZ) Continuing.

My show started as I eliminated the first 3 people within the first 15 minutes of the first episode by watching their movements from a secret camera location...

Chico: DING
Gordon: Chico?
Chico: Mark Cuban?
Gordon: THAT'S who I wanted.
Chico: Booyah!
Jason: Darn.
Gordon: 5 point bonus. Was Mark Cuban to blame for mangling that genre?
Chico: I'd have to say yes... He changed the game as ABC changed the order. Didn't give any reason for why.
Gordon: Judges say to give more support.
Chico: Well, they cut back the order, so they cut the rules to suit, but you probably want to hear about the one where Mark said that the person not picked would be out, but then later, he was brought back.
Gordon: We were looking for favoritism and destroying the ethicality of the show, so we'll allow it. (DING) Close enough.

15 0 15 0

Gordon: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 - Your selection.

I was originally born in Canada, but I made waves on an American show.

Gordon: Brian?
Brian: Alex Trebek?
Gordon: Incorrect (BUZZ) Continuing...

I was described as an egomaniac, but yet the show continued to revolve around me...

Don: DING!
Gordon: Don
Don: J.D. Fortune?
Gordon: That's right!
Jason: Very good.
Chico: I was thinking Pam Anderson :-)
Gordon: 5 point bonus - was J.D. Fortune to blame for Rock Star's slumping ratings?
Don: I don't think so. But I don't know where the blame would go...
Chico: DING
Gordon: Chico for the steal.
Chico: The Monday show for moving slower than hell.
Jason: DING
Gordon: Jason?
Jason: Mark Burnett for making a rock music show the most boring show through editing.
Gordon: Brian - your guess?
Brian: Being a big waste of time?
Chico: I'd say take'em all. =p
Gordon: The judges agree with....Jason. 5 point for the Block.

Chico: *applause*
Don: Nice.
Jason: Yes.
Gordon: 5 point bonus - was Johnny Vaughn to blame for the demise of My Kind of Town?
Brian: Nope.
Gordon: What was, then?
Brian: Apparently, it was being too British and it was kind of like Don't Forget Your Toothbrush.
Gordon: Judges? (BUZZ)
Chico: DING
Gordon: Yes Chico?
Chico: Lack of a clear focus, and being a giant injoke.
Gordon: We'll take that!
Jason: Chico wins.
Gordon: Or you could say that he WAS part of the problem, and the judges would have been ok with that.
Chico: But no, Johnny wasn't THAT much to blame in the slightest...

Chico: 4 for Bobby Orr, baby!
Gordon: 1, 3, 6, 8
Chico: 8, please.
Gordon: Question.

I am an entity that should have been a hit, as I was placed on a Network that hasn't had a miss in a while, and I had a good premise that was based on being an entrepreneurial idea. But alas, even with Todd Newton on board, I wasn't...

Jason: DING
Gordon: Jason
Jason: Made In The USa
Gordon: Correct! 5 point bonus - What was to blame for Made in the USA's failure?
Jason: And to answer the question...the lack of focus of a clear concept, with the fact the people/inventions weren't that hot.

Brian: DING
Gordon: Brian.
Brian: Tommy Hilfiger.
Gordon: Got it. Wow.
Chico: Wow.
Don: Whoa.
Jason: That's impressive...and I had it too and I covered the ******* show.
Gordon: 5 point bonus - Was Tommy to blame for the Cut?
Brian: Being an Apprentice clone.
Gordon: Judges will allow it. 

30 35 25 25

Gordon: So this is for the match, as everyone is all bunched up. (don't forget about the 5 point bonus)
Jason: For all the marbles....
Gordon: Last one...

I have been known as the game show killer, because my appearance on a show usually means that it's lights out. My appearances include the beginning of the end on Celebrity Millionaire and The Weakest Link. Ironically, enough, I was not on either Celebrity Mole, nor Celebrity Fit Club nor the Surreal Life. But I did show up on the latest completed edition of Poker Royale and I finished in a dreadful last place of the comedians. I am comedian Paul...

Chico: DING
Gordon: Chico?
Chico: And he should never host the Newlywed Game again... Paul Rodriguez!
Gordon: YES!
Chico: Woo!
Gordon: 5 point bonus question - was Paul to blame for the crap fest that was the last edition of Poker Royale?
Chico: Him and the rest of the comics.
Gordon: Judges? (DING DING DING)
Chico: They were too busy cutting up to notice that their game was slumping.
Gordon: You mean they had a game?
Don: lol
Chico: Oh, my bad.
Gordon: FINAL Score -

60 35 25 25

Gordon: Thank you all for playing - that was a lot of fun.
Chico: Yes it was.
Don: Yeah, that was quite fun.
Gordon: I figured Chico would enjoy it.
Chico: That was scary fun.
Gordon: We'll finish this one off - after this!

(Brought to you by FremantleMedia. Bringing the new classic games to the world... except for America for some reason...)

Chico: Yes that was a subtle hint on Temptation.
Jason: Bring it here.
Chico: You have the money for it.
Gordon: You'd get better ratings than Larry Elder
Chico: Speaking of which, a happy birthday is in order for Gordon's hero... Simon Cowell turns 46.
Gordon: YAY Simon! Happy Birthday! You deserve it! Whoo-hoo!
Chico: No kissing ass, Gordon.
Gordon: Why not? You do.
Jason: Lot better ass to kiss...Meredith Vieira...any of Barker's Beauties...
Chico: Oh my. Next week, you're going to want to check out the We Love to Interrupt show. it's a big one. It's number 75.
Jason: Next week is a big one.
Chico: Very true.
Don: It oughta be awesome.
Chico: We're going to be doing what we usually do, go over the week in games, but ... hell, it's show 75, you have to watch it!
Gordon: Do we have a special guest?
Chico: Should I tell?
Gordon: Don't tell.
Chico: I won't tell.
Jason: Nah. Keep them waiting.
Chico: It's called "a hook".
Jason: a tease.
Gordon: Do we have any mail?
Chico: Yes we do, but first... the Big Finish! Survivor: despite what others say, Brooke of the Nakum is toast after a Switch. Cue Switch music! Did I get that right?
Gordon: Yes you did.
Chico: Thank you.
Jason: How long do you think Gary will be able to pull off the big lie?
Chico: I don't think it'll be long at all. I think, like every lie save the Grandma, it will come unraveled, unless Gary is that smart a player. Still too early to say for sure.
Gordon: As long as Danni is in the game, Gary has problems.
Chico: Did anyone catch the Millionaire show this week with four players? We had our first llama of the season.
Don: Yeah, that was a weird one.
Gordon: llllllaaaamaaaaa. llama. l-l-a-m-a
Don: All 3 lifelines on the $500 question, and he still gets it wrong.
Chico: Can we get that question real quick?
Don: Coming up... What parts of speech are usually classified as being in the "active voice" or "passive voice"? A: Adverbs. B: Verbs. C: Nouns. D: Adjectives.
Jason: B. Verbs right?
Don: Yep. The audience said B. The 50:50 left A and B. The Phone-A-Friend didn't offer much help. His gut feeling said A.
Jason: And he llamaed on that? Oh boy. But who am I to talk.  I am talking about my trivia fu. It is weak this week.
Chico: You'll recover, grasshopper.
Jason: Thank you sensei.
Chico: Yeah, J, you only won six figures on the show :-)
Jason: :D
Chico: Next, AR Family. Who's going home?
Don: Please be the Paolos.
Chico: Yes. My family's already (^_^)ed up as it is. I don't need to see them on TV =p On reality TV, no less. Okay, time's running short, so we go to viewer mail! Our good friend Jason Wuthrich writes again. Let's see what he has to say...

I'm applying for the position as an extra Jason. :-) Seriously, just out of curiosity, what does it take on get on WLTI, besides an internet connection and an alarm clock to help get me up on Saturday mornings?

Chico: Thanks for writing, Jason. Well, considering that the panel is made up of editors and contributors to GSNN, you'd do well to go that route.
Gordon: Thanks for the e-mail Jason. The requirement is actually very simple. You participate on the site - you get to play with us on WLTI.
Jason: Find a show you want to recap, and see what you have to offer.
Chico: And it's not that bad a gig, really.
Jason: We always love to hear new face and opinions. Although the pay stinks.
Chico: I pay you in good times :-) No man is poorer who has friends, I always say.
Gordon: And with that, we end this edition of the show. Remember,, open 24/7.
Jason: This was a fun one. Nice new game.
Don: Indeed.
Chico: Very much. Join us next time for seven-five, baby. For Jason Block, Don Harpwood, Brian Moore, Joe Van Ginkel, and everyone here at Game Show Newsnet, he's Gordon Pepper.
Gordon: and he's Chico Alexander, and we all say...
Chico: The show is We Love To Interrupt... Game over and spread the love!
Jason: See you for #75.
Brian: Bye! (as Larry The Cable Guy) GIT-R-DONE!!!
