Re: ABC revives two more game shows: Press Your Luck and Card Sharks

Or, as we saw, it can be moot because the whammy can drive off with it! :lol (That is funny to me that, it's the first show back and already they have a car lost.) Shifting those more expensive cars over to the bonus round might make that round more functional, though. As it stands, it's already goi...

Re: ABC revives two more game shows: Press Your Luck and Card Sharks

It is clear that the producers are completely clueless as to what made the original popular. If that were true, then the first half of the game wouldn't have had as much of a vibe that felt like the classic game as it did. That bonus game is going to take getting used to - the only reason I don't s...

Hmmm, Wednesday night I had Colbert on and didn't encounter even an interruption.

Re: John Dingell 1926-2019 R.I.P.

Perhaps Misogyny Radio and TV Buzzboard is a more descriptive name for this board. I've been of the mind that the mibuzzboard (as in its URL) is really nothing more than a sugar-coating for this place really being the MIBitchBoard, but that's just me. :lol [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_...

Re: Media coverage of Obamacare in 2010 vs Trump's wall today

So, your angle is to take a CNN analysis of one thing, and compare it to a RealClearPolitics analysis of another thing, and expect to make a point out of the mishmash. :rollin :rollin :rollin

Re: Golden Tate gets the last laugh!

Actually, it is quite amazing how many players have left various professional Detroit sports teams (quite a few from the Tigers as well) to go on to immediately be successful somewhere else. Is it just me, or does it seem like it's getting to where there's incentive to play badly because they're in...

Re: Casey Kasem The 80’s

Some nearby stations that did carry CT40 at that time, in addition to WVKS, included 102.5 WIOG (which also carried AT40), B96.9 out of Port Huron, and Lansing's Z101.7. I think Flint's CK105.5 may have had it too after WIOG switched to Hot AC in the early '90s. WIOG may have had AT40 all the way u...

Re: Casey Kasem The 80’s

The 80s has been a series since 2007, actually. Though WNIC playing them would be news to me; they'd previously had the series but had dropped it back at the end of 2010 - that coincided with the change to Fresh 100. Now, as for the 90s, don't count on that coming to fruition anytime soon, regardles...
