Bottle of whine
This was the thread that went bonkers when some clever fellow thought Toddlers and Tiaras was coming to GSN. (He had somehow misread an ad for Emogenius.)
The deep thinkers on the thread refused to be embarrassed when their cries and whimpers were revealed to be laughably baseless. Instead, they groused that GSN didn't deny the idiotic rumor. As if anybody in the real game show business pays much heed to boards like Game Show Paradise.
A typical comment on the thread: "Honestly, GSN is a train wreck anymore." They might as well just leave it at that and forget about further remarks. But they keep finding variations on the theme. Right now they're grousing about how David Goldhill's departure means that GSN won't ever run any oldies any more.
Just to break a bit of news to these folks, GSN's oldies are simply cheap filler for some low-rated hours. Meanwhile, GSN has actually doubled down on traditional game shows, as their upfront presentation, recent acquisitions, and current wall-to-wall traditional schedule make clear. But don't expect Game Show Paradise to notice what's really happening at GSN. They probably think that Goldhill's successor will bring Toddlers and Tiaras to the network, first thing.
