This is not going to be like my regular

in the world of game shows, so I am going to share with them here.
It was announced that Drew Carey was going into the WWE Hall of Fame on
Monday, mainly in part to him being a big part of the 2001 Royal Rumble,
making him the first game show host to be in the WWE Hall of Fame. I'm
happy for Drew to be there, as both a fan of wrestling and game shows.
I'm now wondering if he'll be personally responsible for a WrestleMania
Package to be given away, or at least attempted to given away on The
Price Is Right. I can see The Miz or John Cena appear on the show to
help out with that particular showcase. It'll be interesting to see who
inducts Drew. I would mark out if it's Bob Barker or maybe Wayne Brady,
who is still a man in my book for taking a beautiful RKO this time last
Cash Cab has expanded after 6 years to Chicago. I think that's a better
idea than going out to LA to do a spinoff. I mean, it's really hard to
duplicate anything to the point of greatness, like what Cash Cab is. So
far, Beth Melewski and her version of Cash Cab is doing alright. It's
more Cash Cab, which is fine by me. But I'm wondering what would have
happened if they had gone to Los Angeles to do the spin-off show? I'm
guessing it would have ended in the same result, but maybe a bit worse
in the contestant department, due to the fact that you'll see more media
hos in the making because they'll be hamming it up for the hidden
cameras. But that's just my idea.
I'm currently trying to figure out what fan base has it worse: Game Show
fans or Wrestling Fans. I mean, think about it. Both fan bases are
pretty vocal when it comes to the big players in the group, or when it
comes to new people or shows coming into the fold. Back in the 70s and
80s, if you saw a game show that sucked, all you had to do is wait 10-13
weeks and it'll be gone. In the most extreme cases, it'd be 1 full year,
such as the case with the Magnificent Marble Machine. Although with game
shows, you have a lot of choice. With wrestling fans, especially WWE and
TNA fans, if you see something that sucks, you have to bear with it
because it'll still be there next week, unless there is a big amount of
backlash over it. Not only that, WWE is pretty much the only game in
town and TNA is making many mistakes to making sure that they're nothing
more than a glorified independent that will be out of business soon if
they don't get their act cleaned up so they don't have another "Jeff
Hardy Victory Road" Incident.
In closing to my rambling, I would like to thank all the people that
have watched my High Stakes Poker video. Over 3,000 views in less than a
month is nothing to sneeze at. Even if you thought I was fat and a fag
and all that fun stuff, I say thank you. And to those that thought that,
that's ok. I know you have your opinions on shows and someone gives you
a different opinion, you might be reactionary. I wish you guys god speed
and I hope you continue to enjoy the videos that I make.
Thank you for reading my random thoughts.
