Where's the buzz?

It seems to me whenever a new GSN original is coming around in a week or so, there would be a lot more talk about something like Minute to Win It, which premieres in ten days.

The Apolo Ohno-hosted stunt show premieres next Tuesday at 8pm. Though, looking through different message boards and blogs, very little discussion has taken place around Minute to Win It in comparison to American Bible Challenge and most certainly, The Pyramid.

The sneak preview of this Minute to Win It revival was seen on May 23rd, which dropped more than 50% in viewership after the very highly rated American Bible Challenge finale. The episode received mixed reviews between the similarity of the NBC version, Apolo's 'decent' hosting skills and the commercial cut-ins, deliberately planned and extremely annoying.

Who knows if Minute to Win It will go down the same road of The Pyramid, but we'll see next Tuesday. It goes up against America's Got Talent, which unlike American Idol is actually doing well, but like Minute to Win It attracts very similar demos.
