Morning Buzz for May 17, 2011
Good morning, everyone. Here’s this mornings stories.
*ABC announced their Fall 2011 schedule. Who here expected Shark Tank to last three seasons? Not I, a fan of the show. I’m very happy to announce the critically acclaimed reality show has been picked up for a third season. The show sees entrepreneurs come before a panel of five Sharks, wealthy entrepreneurs themselves, to ask for cash to fund their ambitions and dreams. This season added celebrity Sharks such as Jeff Foxworthy and Mark Cuban, who has been a great addition. Very glad to see such a unique and interesting reality show return.
*This is pretty good. As we’ve been talking about, last Friday saw a record breaking moment on Deal or No Deal which culminated in contestant Suzanne winning the £250,000 jackpot. As with shows in America, Suzanne had to keep it a secret from her family. Want to see how they reacted? Take a look at the clip below. It’s great to see stuff like this.
*You can’t make this stuff up. GSN is considering doing a bible quiz show. This is somewhere between idiotic and very poor decision making. Mike Huckabee was first asked to host but he declined. He may be doing a new version of Hee-Haw instead. I don’t even really know what to say about this. Regardless of my feelings on the matter, it’s very funny that they’ll be doing about an hour and a half of penis jokes during their relationship block, and then they’ll cut to questions about jesus. Amazing, guys.
*Speaking of penis jokes, Baggage returns for a new season on Monday, June 6th, at 7:30PM ET on GSN. It will precede the season debut of Lingo.
*Live close to Scotland? BBC’s popular quiz show Secret Fortune is taping new episodes. Click here to get some tickets. It’s a fun show to watch, and seeing game shows in person is very fun. If you’re close definitely give it a shot.
*Here’s what’s on for game show fans tonight:
- ABC: Dancing With the Stars at 8:00PM ET
- NBC: The Biggest Loser at 8:00PM ET; The Voice at 10:00PM ET
