  1. The daytime schedule seems to be doing well except for 3-6pm. I say put Chain Reaction in the 3pm hour and Fieri MTWI in the 5pm hour. I don't know what could do well in the 4pm hour.

    Mind of a Man as always is doing awful. I'm starting to wonder if GSN will ever learn that shows like this don't work.

  2. Of course they won't. They're too arrogant. They thought they could put an African American host on a game with polls and instantly it would become Family Feud. They have no idea what they're doing.

  3. Here's something that can save GSN's afternoon, move STYD at Noon, move down DOND to 4pm. Add a double run of Chain Reaction at 5pm. At 3pm have a double run of LINGO.
