  1. So do you think the day has passed to make some cheap ass game shows for daytime? We talked earlier about Chain not working in prime if GSN brought it back, but how about $5k top prize and include it in a block with a few other similar payout games. USA and CBN/FAM made a few cheapo games to varying degrees of success and failure. Maybe 2-4p.m. would work as counter programming to mostly talk and court. Depending on costs for rights, I could see something like Caesars Challenge, Win/Lose/Draw or similar shows not costing as much to produce as most of their nighttime attempts. Just a couple pennies from me.

  2. Daytime word association games have always done well, alongside Catch 21. There's still enough to go around since it doesn't look like any shows from 2-4pm are on their way out anytime soon.

    Plus, GSN has stored away Engvall and Woolery Lingo, so those could go somewhere if something in daytime falls.

  3. I would've posted here on Wednesday, but I was out of town. Nonetheless, I'm back.

    Weekend mornings:
    10:00am Whammy! 249k
    10:30am Love Triangle 178k

    Sunday nights:
    12:30am 1 vs. 100 220k
    1:30am Love Triangle 158k

    Love Triangle as always does poorly, which is why The Pyramid can't do well on Sundays. The solution would be put Woolery Lingo at 10:30am and Engvall Lingo at 1:30am.

    Dog Eat Dog at 3am got under 100k, I hope that timeslot will change soon.
