Sound like a winner to me.
Chico: Nice bit of rhyming there. I'm writing in Bobbo,
Gordon: The rhymes that we make, as we're done with the
break. So we're on
with the show, what's the next game, Chico?
Chico: Well... newness has been born in the world this
week, not only with
our new area of the site, the Video Wall (which I
suggest all of you go to now,
it's at http://www.gameshownewsnet.com/video) , but with
the US premiere of
the hit Japanese show "Hey! Spring of Trivia", where a
panel of judges analyze
trivia bits sent by the audience. I thought, why not
make a WLTI game out of
it? So born into the world today... ! That's the name of
the game... !.
Chico: Here's how it works, I'll present trivia, and the
three of you have to
give it anywhere from 1 to 10 !s.
Jason: Got it.
Chico: get it, exclamation points?
Gordon: Sounds groovy
Gordon: I get it!!!!!
Chico: Then I'll show corresponding video and you'll get
up to 10 more !s.
Gordon: Let's do it
Chico: Alright, everyone at the Wall?
Chico: Okay, I will prompt you to view the video..
Chico: Let's see the first bit of trivia, this one comes
from The Price is
Right. While proposing to his girlfriend, a Showcase
Showdown player... won
Jason: Very cool.
Chico: That's a lot of !s, Jason.
Jason: I think it's awesome to do. I am a romantic what
do you want.
Travis: What if he had gone way over in the showcase
Jason: He got the best prize of all...a fiancee
Chico: I'm waiting for Gordon to rule on this.
Travis: I guess I'm the opposite of Jason. It was a
coincidence that he won
Travis: Now if he won the $11,000; THEN proposed, I
might go more.
Gordon: Cool and cute - but no $10,000
Gordon: He needs the $1,000 more for taxes than the
Chico: Alright. Nothing more to say than.. Let's watch
the video tape.
Gordon: !!!!!!! - He gets some more for the Showcase win
Jason: The video is another !!!!!!!!!!! Great Barker
moments and the music
done by Dobkowitz.
Gordon: Jason - too many exclamation marks.
Travis: I'll give him !!! overall. Actually, I'm going
to go down to !!,
because of the music.
Chico: Is that three more or another three in addition
to the 1?
Travis: Two !s, total, from me.
Gordon: You've given him 11 exclamation marks out of a
possible ten. You are
obviously amused too easily
Jason: Ok then...!!!!!!!!!! more.: Very amused.
Chico: "Price is Right Proposal and Showcase Win... 33
Jason: It's very rare you get these Price moments these
Chico: Very much so. It used to be that we would stain
ourselves over a DSW.
Travis: Used to be?
Chico: Okay, some of us still do =p
Gordon: I'll give !!!!! just for a mention of it
Chico: Let's go right to the next bit of trivia, from
yesterday's On the
Chico: Mark Walberg... was the subject... of one round's
Chico: Three out of ten all around.
Jason: Cute, but it's been done before.
Travis: Self-referential bits have been done.
Travis: "Who Wants to Win Ben Stein's Monkey," anyone?
Chico: Okay, 10 out of 30. Let's go to the video.
Travis: Oops, wait. I think I did two jokes there. I'll
stick with my 3.
Gordon: Woolery's was better. 1! more
Jason: ! It seemed way fake
Chico: Then again, often times Mark Walberg seems way
Chico: Some added notes, only two of the answers were
Mark Walberg. Two out
of five... and after those, he had to put in an aside.
Very much like Ron
Maestri there. "Mark Walberg is a question on On the
Cover... 12 !s." Okay, next
bit of trivia coming... This one is from Wheel of
Fortune. "An old man... called
letters he already used... and didn't solve the puzzle."
Jason: I saw this doing my recap here on GSNN. !
Chico: Nothing excites Travis there.
Gordon: Me and Travis are Simon and Randy, and Jason is
Chico: Jason is Paula.. That's scary.
Travis: Well, the guy blew an easy puzzle, and forgot
what letters came
Gordon: I give !! for the silly value
Chico: Okay, let's see what happened. Let's watch the
video. Now you all know
my ABC affiliate. They sent me a mug :-)
Travis: I'll stick with my one.
Jason: The audience cheated the people out. !
Gordon: !!! more stars
Chico: No more !s from Travis?
Travis: Nope. That was a slam dunk. The puzzle, I mean.
Chico: Not even for the silly factor.
Travis: Not even for the silly factor.
Gordon: He's just not feeling it, Dawg
Travis: It was indescribably awful.
Chico: "Robin Balboa... 8 !s." Okay, have to go with the
auxiliary on this
then. Another TPIR clip coming... first, the trivia. "A
player on The Price is
right... overbid... by a dollar."
Gordon: THAT's the rare one !!!!!!!
Jason: Happened at a live show in Reno I was at. !!!!!!!
Chico: 19 out of 30... that's pretty high. Let's go to
Travis: I'll add one for the standard "First time ever"
bit from Bob.
Gordon: I'll take one away - since it wasdn't the first
time ever, but
Chico: I'm beginning to think that Travis should be the
underexcited Chairman of trivia,
Travis: That is totally me.
Jason: Very good stuff
Travis: Not for the contestant, it wasn't.
Chico: Okay... Heh. Point to Travis. Collect 60 points
and you can have your
own show on GSNN.
Travis: I'll hold you to that.
Chico: "TPIR Player overbid by a dollar... 30 !s." Okay,
one more. Ready?
Chico: Let's hear it.
Gordon: go for it
Chico: From Jeopardy. "Ken Jennings broke the record...
on a question about
Gordon: Jennings - Blah. Record though is good - !!!!!!!
Jason: Jennings is not Blah!
Gordon: If Jeopardy was the House of Je Ne Sais
say BLAH!. Thank you,
Chico: Travis.. You exploded.
Jason: Jennings rules!
Travis: KJ is the man. What can I say?
Gordon: Play the tape so I can get the torture over with
Chico: Well, let's roll tape..
Travis: I defer to my colleague Mr. Block on that.
Gordon: So he wins. So what?
Travis: He won. And he won again. And again. And
convincingly, every time.
Travis: Reasonable people can disagree unreasonably.
Chico: Who said we were reasonable?
Travis: I'm gonna stick to nine, someone could break the
Jason: and I add !!!!! more... Ken Jennings--contrary to
my colleague Gordon
is the GREATEST game player of all time. Period.
Travis: I have to disagree on that...
Chico: And I have the poll to prove it :-)
Gordon: I disagree with it completely - and I tale back
a ! due to that
Jason: Jealous are we?
Travis: Bitter, party of one, your table is ready.
Gordon: What sort of Whine do I get?
Jason: "I Wanna Be On Jeopardy!!!"
Travis: Something that goes with cheese.
Jason: from Trebek Vineyards
Chico: Any more !s, Travis?
Gordon: lol - 2 more !!
Travis: I don't think that's possible.
Travis: Nine for me.
Chico: "The Coronation of King Jennings: 37!s.
Chico: now the awarding of the Golden Buzzer! *fanfare*
... with that piece
of bread inside that looks like a buzzer! *smaller
fanfare* This is pretty much
an open and shut case, Ken beats a marriage proposal.
And now we go to the
Silver Buzzer, which goes to Gordon's favorite piece of
Gordon: ooooooh. and the winner is...
Chico: *drumroll* I guess he's holding us in suspense
until after the
break.... So I guess we're going to do that, and then
finish up big...
(Brought to you by "My Big Fat Obnoxious Millionaire":
One brainiac is going
to take home the big bucks, but what he doesn't know
is... none of it's real.)
Travis: ("Who Wants to be an Argentinian Millionaire?")
Chico: wanna run that by me again?
Travis: The Argentinian unit of currency deflated faster
than (insert joke
Gordon: Thew winner is...Mark Wahlberg on the Cover!
Gordon: Only kidding, The winning is Jennings, in a rout
- and speaking of
rout, we are down to ...THE BIG FINISH! Are the men
finished in Survivor?
Travis: Hells yes.
Chico: Oh yeah
Jason: Men are done. Unless they win immunity
Travis: Wow. What a vote of no-confidence.
Chico: They're going to need one heck of a run
Travis: Even so, the women can get whoever is next in
Chico: How about the Race? Any favorites emerging?
Travis: Too early.
Jason: I am rooting for the wrestlers.
Gordon: I do like the wrestlers, I don't think they will
go all the way, but
they will be entertaining
Travis: I also am rooting for them, but it's only one
Chico: Yeah,. and the team I was rooting for is gone
already. So now we're
left with a glut of daters, models, and dating models.
Travis: Kevin and Drew, v6?
Travis: Lord help us all...
Gordon: The Biggest Loser - who has the upper hand?
Gordon: I'm sort of wondering where the rationale for
either team is,
mentally, but we'll go with Red
Chico: Red. Celebrity Charades was announced as a go for
AMC. Anyone looking
forward to another round of parlor games?
Jason: Yes, if it's done right.
Travis: Not terribly, no, especially if it plays
straight, like the 70s
version. I enjoy my charades with puzzles.
Gordon: As long as we don't see the SAME stars in EVERY
show, sure. How much
Dave Navarro can we take?
Chico: So you're a Body Language guy
Jason: Great game.
Travis: Yes I am. I find Charades by itself to be
Chico: Okay, some quickies going out... we have a date
for American Idol 4.
Clear your calendars for January 18.
Jason: Appointment TV.
Chico: One day before my birthday.
Travis: That means any winter entries on the other
networks are toast.
Gordon: and why Amazing Race is on at 9 instead of 8
Travis: Smart move by CBS.
Chico: So it can trounce on House... which is a good
show, but it's no
Jason: Hugh Laurie---no Phil Keoghan.
Gordon: We'll see if Fox's lead-in of Idol can help out
House - something
less exciting - January 10 is Bachelorette 3
Chico: And with that.. and no viewer mail.
(More Crickets Chirping)
Chico: We like viewer mail, you know.
Jason: boo hoo
Gordon: Where is the mail going to?
Chico: But it should be going to this address: email@example.com
Gordon: That's the e-mail, and that's a good night. A
Special thanks to Jason
and Travis and Ryan for showing up.
Jason: Good night.
Travis: Anytime. Good night, all.
Jason: And thanks.
Chico: For Jason, Travis, Ryan, Gordon, and the entire
team at Game Show
Newsnet, I'm Chico Alexander...
Jason: See ya!
Gordon: and until next time - Game OVer - and make sure
your turkeys have
Chico: Mmm.. Giblets
