New episodes bust out all over

GSN just dropped a long string of press releases into my inbox. New episodes of various shows start on the network the week of March 12. Forty-one new eps of Newlywed Game will run on Monday and Tuesday at 6:00PM and 6:30PM. That's why the network sent the picture of Sherri Shepherd you're looking at.

Baggage will run 60 new episodes at 6:00PM and 6:30PM on Wednesday and Thursday. Hm, a lot more Jerry, for better or worse. And the ratings disappointment Dancing With the Stars will get its twelfth season run on Saturday nights.

GSN can certainly use some new material, because the ratings haven't been all that swell lately. The new eps of the originals could help restore some of their lost Nielsen luster. And maybe a more recent season of Dancing might hoof its way to better numbers. (I'm not too confident any more, though.)

There may be some schedule reshuffles beginning the week of March 12, but GSN hasn't sent me the advance schedule pdf yet. And the way things go, the pdf is usually obsolete before its week rolls around, anyway.
