BREAKING NEWS: Playmania Becomes Block of Two New Shows
I like this development: According to a GSN website, the two-hour live interactive game show “Playmania” is becoming a block of two shows, “100 Winners” and “Quiznation”. “100 Winners”, hosted by Mel Peachey, sees contestants who are selected answer an in-show question. If they do, they get to pick one of the 100 safe deposit boxes containing a prize. Mel Peachey’s goal for the show is to open up all 100 safes in the show’s time. “Quiznation”, hosted by Shandi Finnessey, is basically going to be what “Playmania” is now, so no big development there. Here’s the site you can look at.
It’s looking like Jessica York was left out of the picture. Quite frankly, that’s not surprising or a bad thing. I’ve seen her host, and she just isn’t that good at it. She might be a very good television personality on other shows, but on “Playmania”, she just wasn’t that good, in my opinion.
UPDATE: Scheduling information has been announced in a breaking press release. “100 Winners” will air Tuesdays through Thursdays, starting next week, from 12AM to 2AM ET. “quiznation” will air Fridays through Sundays from 12AM to 2AM ET. All three ways to play along (text, internet, and landline).
