This week GSN unveils a partially new daytime lineup. At 12pm, the highly anticipated but short-lived GSN remake 1 vs. 100 with Carrie Ann Inaba will air alongside another highly anticipated but short-lived GSN remake of Lingo with Bill Engvall.
Both replaced Chuck Woolery's Lingo in January, which last two months in the noon hour after replacing Shop 'Til You Drop (which really only lasted six weeks and should have stayed in the first place), which Shop replaced Richard Karn's Family Feud, which was one of the best classic to modern transitions.
In the 5pm hour (ET), Bob Saget's 1 vs. 100 will take over an hour of Shop 'Til You Drop.
Predicitions: These changes will tank, though the later (Saget 1 vs. 100) will do worse than the first two (GSN 1 vs. 100 and Lingo). Hour-long game shows have never done so hot in the 5pm hour with the exception of NBC's Deal or No Deal, only because it was super popular to GSN at the time. In the past two years GSN tried 5th Grader and Minute to Win It (Fieri) which were short-lived or struggled.
Lingo and 1 vs. 100, both from 2010-11 are too modern from the noon hour. 1 vs. 100 will especially tank since it is too modern and there is no big audience to want Carrie Ann Inaba's version back on the schedule, especially in early daytime.
Replacements/what actually worked: For both, bring back Richard Karn's Family Feud. There's definitely a lack of it around the schedule, where its only appearances since January are on weekends. There's still an audience for Karn Feud and it's an "old reliable". I'm not one to say "put more Family Feud", even though there is enough of it. It just might work. Shows like Karn Feud, Shop 'Til You Drop and Chuck Woolery's Lingo are a much better fit, being from the early to mid 2000's and a better transition to John O'Hurley Feud, which has worked wonders to the 1pm hour weekdays.
I would try to predict the GSN schedule, but then again, no one saw Chain Reaction disappearing completely, replaced by Deal or No Deal and not Lingo (or some word association game) no less and Shop 'Til You Drop coming to the network.
