Full GSN Primetime Ratings for 10/6 for 'Family Feud' and 'Winsanity'

Summary: From Winsanity heavily weighing down primetime below and doing nothing to help with the 18-49 demo, I am confused why Winsanity gets a hiatus starting this week. Instead, Winsanity should be pulled from the GSN schedule.

  1. So for the record, it's not a revival of The Joker's Wild, which would have actually been a pretty good idea. Instead, we get another garbage "not a game show" idea by the idiots running the network. Which, to be honest, no one should be surprised at anymore, considered the recent blatant ignorance this network has displayed towards its fan base.

    The slot-machine show is called "The World Championship of Slots". GSN picked it up for 16 episodes, each 1-Hour long, and it's literally watching people across the country play slot machines at casinos. Whoever's luckiest makes it to the finals for a chance at winning $1,000,000.

    If I wanted to watch people play slot machines at casinos and lose thousands of dollars, I'd just go out to the local casino myself and take a video camera with me.

    Just another FANTASTIC IDEA (/sarcasm) by the NON-GAME-SHOW-NETWORK.
