Carnie Wilson Progressive Insurance commericals airing on GSN
Wilson on GSN's The Newlywed Game
If you have watched some of Game Show Network lately, Progressive insurance commercials have aired with an appearance by Carnie Wilson. Here is a YouTube link to the Progressive advertisement.

In case you were not around the GSN environment in 2010, this is more interesting than you think.

The last Carnie Wilson appearance on GSN was in 2010 when she hosted The Newlywed Game. Wilson left The Newlywed Game due to a lawsuit over money that GSN did not pay Wilson for extra filming time from her short-lived GSN reality show, Carnie Wilson: Unstapled.

A big deal? No, not at all. Just an eye-catcher. 


  1. Carriewed ain't back on the schedule, but I did get new pdfs for June 29-July 5 and July 6-12 and posted them on Game Show Follies.

    Actually, I think that when the lawsuit was finally settled in 2012, GSN did run an episode of Carriewed as sort of a peace offering.

    1. I vaguely remember GSN running a few episodes of The Newlywed Game with Carne Wilson, or "Carniewed" as some say. It was during that awful block scheduling era where GSN would run one show for five hours each night. The Newlywed Game had Tuesday nights for a long time and the Shepherd version was always on except one week where there were Wilson eps for two or three hours. The Davy Jones tribute was for Jones, not Wilson if that is what you are referring to.

      Thanks for posting the schedules. I will check them out later.

    2. Oops, should be "Carniewed." Anyway, I found an entry on my blog from 2012 about Carnie's brief return to GSN that year...

    3. Not much to report on the advanced schedules. Just some more Skin Wars reruns.
