With not much to write about on a slow news weekend, I'll do some inside baseball stuff.

This site is really three blogs in one. There are the main entries, the faux tweets, and the videos from our little genre. I get the embedded videos from YouTube, where game shows have different levels of commitment. For instance, the CBS pair, The Price is Right and Let's Make a Deal, pile up lots of videos on their YouTube sites. I always find plenty of new clips to choose from.

Family Feud is another show with a stuffed video channel on YouTube. On the sad other hand, Wheel of Fortune doesn't post much on the site. They put most of their clips on Facebook.

ABC's game show reboots vary. 100K Pyramid posts a fair number of YouTube videos, but To Tell the Truth is pretty stingy with them. TBS insists on festooning all their Joker's Wild videos with cannabis leaves. I wonder why.
