Gordon: Is that your dream, Chico?
Chico: Actually, it would be "I'm a Game Show Personality, Get Me Out Of Here, But I Ain't Listenin' to Ya" (^_^)ers. :). Well... Here we are, fellas... We're at the end of the year.
Gordon: With that, it's time to get to the last 2004 BIG FINISH! Who wins the Biggest Loser?
Chico: I'll give it to Gary. How about you?
Gordon: Ryan should win this (not you, Vickers. Sorry). Jep Tournament of Champions 2005. Is there anyone not named Ken Jennings who has a shot at this?
Chico: Umm.... I pass, next question, please.
James: Anything can happen...a Ken win is not a guarantee.
Gordon: Would they bring in Nancy Zerg, because...well, you know...
Chico: Nope. Only one win. And not even that spectacular a win.
James: No Nancy.
Chico: Amazing Race ... was the To Be Continued plug completely unnecessary or what?
Gordon: It's completely unnecessary - but apparently, the show is doing well enough to make expanded episodes. I have a feeling this it was the 2 hour special that they extended just to get more air time out of the series.
Chico: Right. Way to put off AR7 that much. Mail?
Gordon: Well, instead of mail this week, being that it's the end of the year and all, We all have created New Year's Resolutions for next year. We'll start it with Ryan Vickers.
Chico: *starts humming Auld Lang Syne*

Ryan: A happy 2005 to all GSNN readers - here's hoping for some more fan choice on GSN and maybe a revival of a good studio game. And Mole reruns hand delivered to all of us.

Gordon: Next up - Aldo Villalona, recapper for Outback Jack.

Aldo: For 2005, I resolve that the networks should have a new game show, with a new premise that isn't a reality show - like a throwback game show, or even a studio show revival.

Chico: Joe Van Ginkel, semi-reg on the show...

Joe: New Year's Resolution - To make some effort to further my career as a game show host and producer (and to try and officially make friends with Amy Jo Johnson).

Gordon: Jason Block, our resident Wheel man...

Jason: My resolution is that GSN comes to it's senses and realizes that it is alienating its fans by its scheduling. And that they put back the TPIR reruns on.

Chico: What's yours, James?
James: For at least one studio show to premiere in 2005.
Chico: Well, I wish, of course, that people start getting the hint at innovation keeps the genre thriving. All this copying is killing game shows. I mean, you can pretty much do anything, but if it's good, then leave it and try something else. With that, from all of mine to all of yours, all the best in 05. Gordon, your thoughts?
Gordon: My resolution is to the audience - I resolve that I hope the audience continues to honor good shows, stop watching bad shows, and show the people in the industry that game shows of all types and ilks, whether it be studio, reality, sport, casino, video game, or whatever, is just as important as any other sort of programming. And finally, I resolve that the audience that has made WLTI one of the most visited segments to our site a wonderful, happy, healthy and successful 2005.
Chico: Haven't seen Starcade in a while...that'd be pretty nice to do again. Well, that's it... No more for 0-4. We're back with new episodes weekend of January 22 (after we all get some well-deserved rest!)
Gordon: Rest is good - and after we have seen the new shows - we'll give you the lowdown.
Chico: Until then, we leave you with some of our favorite moments from 2004 on WLTI. We hope that you enjoyed reading as much as we enjoyed giving it to you... for regulars Jason Block, Jason Hernandez, Rob Seidelman, Ryan Vickers, Aldo Villalona, Joe Van Ginkel, and Chris Wolvie...
Gordon: And our special WLTI guests this year - Steve Altes, Alex Davis, James Dinan, Travis Eberle, Mike Klauss,  Lee DiGeorge (wherever the heck he is), Brian Moore, Jay Lewis, Jeff Suchard, and Eddie Timanus...
Chico: ..And everyone here at Game Show Newsnet, we're Chico Alexander and Gordon Pepper. Happy new year, everyone!
Gordon: And to 2004 - Game Over. See you in 2005!

(The Great Take a Side Debate)
Chico:
I'm going to recuse myself from voting because no one said jack about presentation... The key was presentation. That's where the innovation lies.
Jeff: So it's a TIE?
Gordon: I knew this was coming. We're getting a draw, aren't we?
Chico: We're getting a draw, yes.

(on On the Cover)
Tim Hsieh:
Since we had been there for about 7 hours prior to taping our show, everyone was getting tired. Catherine was feeling some of those effects. Plus, she had tasted the mystery pudding.
Rob: Ah, that's why she ended up in 3rd place.

(after a round of Deserted Island)
Gordon:
OK - so to sum it up - We'll send the Scwab, Omarosa, Janice
Dickinson, Mike Matesou, Ron Artest, Jermaine O'Neal, Stephen Jackson, and the heads of ABC and CBS to the island, have them eat the Fear Factor Thanksgiving feast, then stuff the executives and keep the NBA players, the Schwab and Omarosa and Janice to breed the island so we have plenty of being to stuff for next Thanksgiving.
Ryan:   I like it.

(opening)
Gordon:
The man with the stellar opinions - and the man who has yet to be beaten on WPLJ's show dedicated to him - Jason Block.
Travis: Oh, that's right; I forgot about that show "Beat the Blockhead," or
something.
Jason: It's Beat the Block.
Travis: See, it's a pun...
Jason: I got it--didn't want it...but I got it...

(Dr. Gordon’s response to a Trump trash talker)
Gordon:
Well, TTT, I think you need to evaluate your position in life, and you need to figure out if this is the right position for you. But in the meantime...sue. Sue NBC for editing you that way. Sue the Donald for trashing you on national TV and for libel. Sue Stacy for libel and for talking too much. Sue the old job for false firing. SUE EVERYONE AND GET RICH DOING IT!!! THAT'S HOW THE REAL BUSINESS WORLD WORKS!!!

(another opening)
Jeff Suchard:
Happy to be here. Am I more SPECIAL because it's in caps?
Chico: But of course! But not that kind of special. The good kind. You know,
until the end of the show, when you WILL be the other kind.
Joe: *rimshot*

(on Lost over Top Model)
Jeff Suchard:
What are two shows that don't interest me much, Alex? I'll be watching "Lost" to see when the Sleestaks appear. Cuz they are in the Land of the Lost, right?
Chico: We'll have to see once the claymation dinosaurs appear... Because we can't afford CGI =p
Joe: Are you forgetting Wesley Eure?
Chico: After watching him on Finders Keepers I'd like to. :-)

(yet another opening)
Chico:
  I think Nigel Lythgoe is the scariest thing to come from Britain since mad cow disease. Your thoughts, Gordon?
Gordon:
I think that you've been hanging out in his kitchen a little too long for my liking.

(on who could be the Player Operator)
Gordon:
I am sick of the dopey Bachelor shows. Since no one is looking for love anymore, let's throw a nasty twist into the genre. I would make STEVE from MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS FIANCE the player and then the game would be to try to get eliminated from the show so that you DON'T get married to him.
Chico:  Seppuku is allowed, right?
Gordon: no - no Seppuku allowed.
Chico:  Damn.

(And finally, Steve Altes...)
Steve Altes:
Ban dodgeball? Why you might as well ban apple pie and mother's day! America is getting softer than microwaved butter! I know what those NPR-listening, Birkenstocks-wearing, frappuccino-guzzling parents want. They want their Joshuas and their Olivias to grow up in a cozy womb of non-competition, where everybody shares their tofu and the three little pigs and the big, bad wolf set up a commune. Then their kids will be shoved out into the real  world and discover that there's weak and strong and winning and losing. You'll recognize those kids. They'll be the ones steaming your chai. It's a very noncompetitive pursuit.
