Much ado

The game show Interwebs are atwitter with the news that Family Feud will feature the cast of Honey Boo Boo vs. the cast of Cake Boss.

Naturally, what's left of what used to be Matt Ottinger's board takes this as a sign of the apocalypse. Then the thread runs off the rails into the usual intramural sniping. The sour fruit guy (anybody who reads the board knows who I'm talking about) takes the lead in the sniping, as he so often does.

There's also the usual nostalgia for the good old days when Feud was pure and holy, before the evil Steve Harvey defiled survey-saying. Except back in the good old days Feud was hosted by Richard Dawson. I don't want to call him a dirty old man, but he was not a boy scout.

Anyway, I've never watched a minute of Honey Boo Boo, and there won't be any minutes in my future. But who cares if Feud brings on some silly reality denizens? It's just a game show, folks.

  1. I haven't read a single thread in that board that didn't devolve into a parade of bitching and put-downs.

    I take game show far less seriously than them. Although I have my opinions on the current Feud and this announcement, I wouldn't spend a ton of time contemplating on it.

  2. GSF was formed to be an alternate to alt.tv.game-shows.

    The problem was, they brought people over like Chuck Gibson and Chris Lemon.

    It has been a high school cliquish group from the getgo. Many people banned for having different opinions, and namely not putting up with the insults from "Mr. Sour Fruit".

    Even Randy West hardly posts there anymore. That should tell you something.
