Hi, welcome to Game Shows Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the GSN Live page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Neubauer (Talk) 18:18, November 12, 2012

hi, do you know who hosted the Israeli version of Hot Streak Called Hamesh, Hamesh (5/5)? ( 16:42, January 26, 2013 (UTC))

Please do not post hateful pictures of anyone, as I have received complaints from other editors of doing so.

You have contributed so much, and I hate blocking people.  Please do not be malicious.

Not Game Shows

Brandon, I know that I shouldn't be talking to you at all, but I don't think that both The Real World and Road Rules (the regular individual series on MTV not the Challenge spinoff) are accepted as game shows.(Gameshowsareforever (talk) 13:11, November 8, 2013 (UTC))

Never thought I'd do this, but I'll have to agree. They can't be game shows, just simple reality opera shows (ala Jersey Shore). GEOFF: I think TMBLover, ladies & gentlemen, HAS MADE A MISTAKE! HE MADE A MISTAKE! OH, this is a great day for all us bumblers, I tell you!--William Henry Sydnor Jr. (talk) 13:33, November 8, 2013 (UTC)
Well I never though of doing this either Kingofgameshows800, but I'm glad that you agree with me. Seriously, that's like making an article of The Hills as an entry in U.S. game shows wiki; it's unrealatable and it's WAAAAAY! out of the genre. Now oddly enough, both TRW and RR can be accepted at a reality soap opera wiki (if there is one made of course) but not here on u.s. "GAME SHOWS" wiki.
I agree with the both of you.—Brandon Devers 19:22, November 9, 2013 (UTC)
Once again, thank you Brandon. Look here's the things, Survivor, Big Brother, Dancing with the Stars etc. are in 100%, no doubt about it reality shows. Yes, they are annoying. Yes, we wish that they don't exist in the world of television in the first place. Yes, they are not "R-E-A-L" game shows. However, they all have a "HOST" (but some others may not have a HOST either). They all have a "COMPETITIVE" theme to them and they all have a "PRIZE" for the contestants to keep at all times. Others like RR, TRW and TSL are in no way, shape or form "GAME SHOWS"; they don't have a "HOST" for them. They do not have participants "COMPETING" against each other (unless you count the arguing and b****ING between the participants) nor do the have a "PRIZE" or "REWARD" for the participants to keep. In other words, I believe that Road Rules, The Real World & The Surreal Life (their original counterparts and not its spinoffs of Challenge and Fame Games, respectively) should be deleted/banned permanently from this site forever. So, hopefully, one of you guys can get to it and thank you.
Same deal with Hell's Kitchen and Gordon Ramsay...except the "prize" can be kept or given up at any time (they can choose to stop working as his head chef at their will). And before anyone even thinks about it--none of these shows are scripted or fake or whatever. NONE! You think the chefs are deliberately making the mistakes just to see Ramsay yell at them?! NO! They're trying their darndest to impress him...but Hell's Kitchen is like any other fine dining restaurant--you have to (learn to) cook under pressure.

Whammy Pilot Photos

How did you get the photos from the whammy pilot. Did you see a video of the whammy pilot? - Emoinuyasha9

Short-Running before Flops, Packager(s) in between Broadcast & Host and No categorizing single photos

Sorry to message you again, but you left me no choice (right after I saw how mad you got Brandon).

Listen man, there are three things you'll have to follow from now on:

  1. The category "Short-Running" should go before the category "Flops".
  2. The Packgers (production companies) section must go in between the Broadcast & Host sections.
  3. Do not categorize/subjectize single pictures. Only do it with multiples (two or more).

Thank you.

Oh ok, I written what to do with that on my paper just in case, and BTW I was going to do a No Logo thing for "Separation Anxiety" but it wasn't working in my favor.

Do you see all the new videos?

I uploaded them from YouTube here. Also, it is possible for you to adopt this wiki! CalzoneManiac (talk) 12:44, January 29, 2014 (UTC)

The $1,000,000 Chance of a Lifetime Pilot Spiel

How on earth did you learn about the pilot opening spiel of The $1,000,000 Chance of a Lifetime?--William Henry Sydnor Jr. (talk) 14:05, March 8, 2014 (UTC)

I never thought I'd say this but, thanks buddy.--William Henry Sydnor Jr. (talk) 03:16, March 9, 2014 (UTC)
Now this will answer your question: [1]

Checking In

Hello. I just thought I would check in and see how things are going. I’ve been busy with things unrelated to game shows, such as my health.—Brandon Devers 12:23, May 20, 2014 (UTC)

I know you usually despise me since we don't really have a good relationship but I'm still alive and kicking thanks for asking and I'm sorry to hear about your health, I won't ask what condition you have if it's a little too embarrassing to talk about it.

Don’t be sorry. It’s just minor arthritis. Furthermore, I don’t hate you. Sure, we have had conflict, but I never hated you. It is good to see that you are alive and well. Take good care.—Brandon Devers 01:11, May 21, 2014 (UTC)

Senior pains huh? well of course all of us are going to suffer through that later on in life but at least we got Tylenol to cure for it (LOL!) but it's good to have a minor chit-chat from you without the arguments and complaining.but before I go their was a question that I have ask kingofgameshows800 before and I never got a straight-foward answer to which is how about we add companies (i.e. Ludia, Gametek etc.) that have done merchandise for board games, video games etc. based on game or reality shows? basically we give a little brief origin and we add the list of series that were based on it. again if you think that's impossible I'll understand if you don't want to go forward on the idea. until then in the words of Jerry Springer from his controversial daytime talk show (which I don't watch BTW) take care of yourself and each other.

I don’t think it’s impossible. Good night, friend.—Brandon Devers 04:27, May 21, 2014 (UTC)

So that's a thumbs up? on the idea of course and good night to you.

Yes. It is a “thumbs up”.—Brandon Devers 21:20, May 21, 2014 (UTC)

I figured, but at the same time I also though that you were going to reject the idea as well but thanks for the support anyway.

Hi, please help me find more pictures or videos from the dating game. I have been searching for the one my dad is on, where did you find those pictures? thank you!

Hello to you sir or madame I really don't know which pictures are you talking about and I wouldn't mind helping you out of the pics or vids of your father but I really can't find any sources for it, sorry!


One tip: When placing an infobox on articles, place the starting paragraph/sentence two rows down. Only put the paragraph next to the infobox when the article is talking about a person.

Example: This... {| cellpadding=2 cellspacing=2 align=right border=1 width=256px style="font-family: verdana, sans-serif; padding: 6px; margin: 0 0 1em 1em; font-size: 10px; background-color: #f78ff; border:1px solid #8888aa;" | align="center" colspan=2|'''Host''' |- |[[Chris Harrison]] |- | align="center" colspan=2|'''Co-Host''' |- |Mellisa Rycroft (2010) |- | align="center" colspan=2|'''Broadcast''' |- |[[File:8624776_448x252.jpg|center|160px]]ABC: 8/9/2010-9/10/2012 |- | align="center" colspan=2|'''Packager''' |- |Next Entertainment<br />Warner Horizon Television |}'''Bachelor Pad''' was a three-seasoned, elimination-style series in which former contestants from the ''The Bachelor'' and ''The Bachelorette'' face weekly challenges while living under the same roof.

Should be like this: {| cellpadding=2 cellspacing=2 align=right border=1 width=256px style="font-family: verdana, sans-serif; padding: 6px; margin: 0 0 1em 1em; font-size: 10px; background-color: #f78ff; border:1px solid #8888aa;" | align="center" colspan=2|'''Host''' |- |[[Chris Harrison]] |- | align="center" colspan=2|'''Co-Host''' |- |Mellisa Rycroft (2010) |- | align="center" colspan=2|'''Broadcast''' |- |[[File:8624776_448x252.jpg|center|160px]]ABC: 8/9/2010-9/10/2012 |- | align="center" colspan=2|'''Packager''' |- |Next Entertainment<br />Warner Horizon Television |} '''Bachelor Pad''' was a three-seasoned, elimination-style series in which former contestants from the ''The Bachelor'' and ''The Bachelorette'' face weekly challenges while living under the same roof.

And another thing, just because you do things over at the Goodson-Todman Wiki (like upload YouTube videos or arrainging information on the pilot the way they do over there), doesn't mean you have to do them here.--William Henry Sydnor Jr. (talk) 01:27, August 6, 2014 (UTC)


I know you're going to wonder what I'm talking about, but why do you keep doing that?--William Henry Sydnor Jr. (talk) 02:29, December 26, 2014 (UTC)

I'll take a shot in the dark and guess adding the title of the actual show in bold is a very big issue to you KOGS800?

Nope.--William Henry Sydnor Jr. (talk) 16:46, March 16, 2016 (UTC)


Are you trying to break a record or something?--William Henry Sydnor Jr. (talk) 19:41, June 9, 2015 (UTC)

I sense that your talking about the uploaded remaining Gameshow Marathon episodes of TPIR, LMAD, MG'73, BTC, PYL and Feud if I'm not mistaken and no I'm just trying to do a job here. Just kind felt that the page was a little bit lonely with CS hanging around that's all! Oh BTW the logo for "The Seventies Edition" of The CNN Quiz Show is already uploaded in the "Photo" page if you want to use it in the article.
Not exactly, beside, I actually didn't mind about those other Gameshow Marathon show or "The Seventies Edition" logo. I was referring to this around the clock editing you're doing ala Gamerman1990.--William Henry Sydnor Jr. (talk) 14:12, June 10, 2015 (UTC)
To be fair, William, GSAF's edit history suggests he does have a schedule for these things and does take breaks (as it were) for noticeable periods of time (between 90 minutes and 13 hours, depending on the time of day). Same goes for Gamerman1990, whose edit history indicates he edits way less often with much longer breaks (sometimes spanning days), although I definitely get your point in referencing the latter.
That said, to GSAF – I recommend that if you're gonna upload a bunch of pictures for a specific page (such as Mark Goodson Productions), upload the pics first and then edit the page to add 'em. -Daniel Benfield (talk) 19:48, June 10, 2015 (UTC)

Broadcasting Magazine

How long are you going to keep on "invading" the Broadcasting magazine as it were, at the American Radio History site?--William Henry Sydnor Jr. (talk) 13:19, December 16, 2015 (UTC)

I figured this was going to be about the multiple adds poster on this site, I though it would be cool to extended some life on some of the pages hopefully I won't get any "controversies" from them. I deeply apologize for that KOGS800.
Believe me, there are some things that can cause controversy, but this isn't one of them.--William Henry Sydnor Jr. (talk) 20:29, December 18, 2015 (UTC)
Well that's a relief KOGS800, but in your view I'm assuming that you want me to stop because of annoyance right? but to be fair I got those ads to upload here on this site because I though that they look cool and interesting to me especially ones from the 80s.
Just passing through, but I think the ads give context for various shows (especially the syndicated ones), and in several cases show that some programs were ready for another season they ended up not getting (for one thing, I didn't know the 1971-77 syndicated Let's Make A Deal was trying for a seventh year, and especially that they wanted to go to five-a-week). -Daniel Benfield (talk) 21:16, December 18, 2015 (UTC)
Well Daniel, you learn something everyday right? as they say in the G.I. Joe cartoon P.S.A's from the 1980s "So now you know, and knowing is half the battle!".

Dream League

Where did you find the Dream League logo?--William Henry Sydnor Jr. (talk) 17:20, June 8, 2016 (UTC)


On the contrary KOGS800, where did you get the 2006 pilot logo of The Joker's Wild?

John Ricci Jr's Flash Work II video. Here's the link [3]--William Henry Sydnor Jr. (talk) 19:10, June 8, 2016 (UTC)

I appreciate your help KOGS800, but I don't really know why the GSN logo needs to be in use since even though reruns of the classic series have pop up on the network a few times but was never ever a GSN original.


Congratulations. You have achieved #1 on the leaderboard. I am impressed.—Brandon Devers (talk) 00:14, October 27, 2016 (UTC)

Sorry to ask Brandon, but where was I #1 on which leaderboard?

You are #1 on the leaderboard on this wiki. Your last badge put you at #1.—Brandon Devers (talk) 13:11, October 30, 2016 (UTC)

Wow, honestly, I never bothered/thought to look at it that way Brandon, To me I though it was a fun reach out to help the community in my view, but yay for me I guess. Also (and you can reject this if you want to) I was thinking of adding a list (ex: The WB Shows, UPN Shows, TBS Shows) in their own page, if of course if I get the "greenlight", but if not then I'll leave it the way it is from now on.


I was looking at the pages for DuMont shows and noticed you put a screencap of the What's the Story logo on its page. A quick Google search and a reverse image search turned up nothing, so I'm wondering where you got the pic from. -Daniel Benfield (talk) 06:52, January 1, 2017 (UTC)

I think that this is the site that your looking for (look under W)

Are you There?

I noticed that you are currently MIA (Missing In Action)! Are you there and are you alright?--William Henry Sydnor Jr. (talk) 20:55, January 4, 2017 (UTC)

I'm fine William, I'm just having a problem with the laptop issue trying to trade this in with a new one I just got for Christmas of last year althogh I haven't got up to speed yet sorry!  

Hi, I apologize if this isn't the best way to reach you, but I'm a writer with HuffPost and would like to ask about the source of a few photos you uploaded for a story. If you're up for providing the context, you can reach me at . Really appreciate the help. 21:27, March 8, 2017 (UTC)

Hello Todd from the HuffPost (a.k.a Huffington Post) are you doing an article game shows? If so than good luck in your endeavors but sorry, I don't do e-mails let alone do not know how to do it.

New message

Can you make a page for actor Charlie Schlatter, he was on the CBS medical drama Diagnosis Murder from 1995-2001. He was also a celebrity contestant on the Tom Bergeron version of Hollywood Squares. -Andy39 (talk) 11:22 AM May 3, 2017 (UTC)

Now I usually don't ever get people like you requesting on doing pages for celebrities, but I'll think about it Andy39. (Gameshowsareforever (talk) 21:00, May 3, 2017 (UTC))

I thought that I would add an infobox to pages on the British Game Shows Wiki Page. Why don't you help by adding some photos.

Quizmaster1995 (talk) 22:04, September 16, 2017 (UTC)

I hate to break this to you Quizmaster1995, but my British knowledge (especially in game shows) isnt that strong, sorry. (Gameshowsareforever (talk) 00:11, September 17, 2017 (UTC))

Correction of the klutter. I was trying to put the "High Rollers" game of "Lucky Numbers" to the mini games area.

Good luck on that.

The Dating Game

Hi Gameshowsareforever,

My father was on The Dating Game back in the 1960s and I have been trying to find a way to locate his episode.  I've contacted Sony Pictures Entertainment and they are currently looking into the inquiry.  The reason I'm contacting you regarding this is because one of the pictures you uploaded for The Dating Game appears to show my father!  You uploaded the picture on July 1, 2014, and the picture file name is "1620731 641109869259899 1775186167 n.jpg".  My father appears to be the gentleman on the very left, closest to the woman on the show.  With this picture being uploaded over 3 years ago you may not recall where you found out but I have to ask; do you have any information whatsoever regarding the picture?  For example, where did you find it, what episode number was it or date it aired, who the contestents or woman on the show was?  My family and I would greatly appreciate any information you can provide.  Thank you! 05:45, October 20, 2017 (UTC)

Sorry mystery person, but I do not recall.

Angebot des Jahrhunderts

Hello from Germany, I saw you had a lot of information about the german Sale of the century pilot. Do you have this episode by Chance? BossonHH (talk) 21:07, January 10, 2019 (UTC)BossonHH

Sorry BossonHH, I do not!

Strike it rich format

Where in the world did you get your information about the format for earlier episodes of this show. The premiere episode (which logically is an early episode!!!!) uses the same format as the rest of the show and the amazon prime episode also use the original format. Unless you have evidence to back up your claim you need to fix your post

I assuming your talking about the short-lived 1986-87 version hosted by the late Joe Garagiola cause I have no clue myself.

Wheel of Fortune and The Price is Right

Both games use a spinning wheel, but the wheel in Wheel of Fortune is in the downright position, and the one in The Price is Right is in the upright position and built in the wall. (Chris Reibel (talk) 12:23, January 18, 2019 (UTC))

Thanks for the info Chris Reibel. And yes both WOF and TPIR do have spinning wheels although in Wheel you supposed to land on a amount while avoiding the Bankrupt/Lose A Turn and solve the puzzle while Price in the showcase showdown (although this long-running show was never my strength) you supposed to make a dollar without going over in order to advance to the showcase, but what's your take on The Big Board from Press Your Luck since contestants have to land on a random square with a big red button that's right in front of them by yelling STOP! instead of spinning a wheel.

Early Pictures of Stars on TTTT

Where  did you find those early pictures of Cynthia Nixon & Anderson Cooper on To Tell the Truth?--William Henry Sydnor Jr. (talk) 13:48, June 17, 2019 (UTC)

Buzzr's Official Facebook page.


Try this little program one day:; It'll upload as many pictures as you want in one fell swoope!--William Henry Sydnor Jr. (talk) 19:18, July 15, 2019 (UTC)

Thanks! Sorry KOGS500, I bet its probably driving you bonkers about it now.


Sorry, but I don't I just saw the picture in some old NBC promo.


Hold up...YOU HAVE THE MG/HS HOUR PILOT?!!? So many, how? Can you download more pictures? The rules?

Sorry, but I just saw some of the pics from a very old NBC daytime promo from the 80s

If I may kindly ask, in the article "Game Show", where did you get the three pictures that mention about Classic Game Shows including Press Your Luck, Card Sharks, Beat the Clock, What's My Line?, To Tell the Truth, Tattletales, Sale of the Century, and Match Game?2600:1700:E750:BD30:201B:8D74:7281:6722 05:43, February 9, 2020 (UTC)

I think it was from a now-defunct website called FremantleMedia Enterprises, but I do not recall the address.

Best Friends Date

Hi Gameshowsareforever, I was wondering if you remembered where you got the screenshot for Best Friend's Date or where any episodes are. I've been looking for the show for so long. Thanks so much. Quailney (talk) 22:59, September 21, 2020 (UTC)

I think it was from YouTube Quailney and thanks.
