The CW network is seeing a renaissance of creativity and decent  ratings ,since the UPN and  CW merged the best of their former networks. Under Mark Pedowitz who succeeded Dawn Ostroff who turned the  female driven channel,in a sea of female networks (Oxygen,OWN, Lifetime,WE, & ABC Family,which had become the new WB) into the DC Superhero network. He also been able to continue to extend a hand to the ladies with the horror show that will never die, SupernaturalJane the Virgin and white soul sister series, Crazy EX Girlfriend. Should the competition based GSN, which has pathetically chased female demo for years, create more guy centric games and save the network, like the CW did?

GSN time slot's are 70% filled w/ Steve Harvey's Family Feud, thanks to binge watching its the ONLY show that averages about 500,000+ viewers all day long. The recent episodes, give the channel an allure of relevance.

Currently president Amy Introcaso-Davis, keeps trying to run the channel ,like its the Oxygen network and only wants to launch women based shows, yet failed to be female compassionate and give away parting gifts to the losers on her shows. She even cancelled: Emmy nominated quiz marathon game (hosted by a woman!) The Chase & a less dark version of often reran series Chain Reaction, which still getting good numbers that exceed or nearly matched the Feud runs.

The self produced hits now, only include Idiot Test (the smartest show ever produced on the channel) and reality show clone Skin Wars.Wars success is troubling, since the network spent almost 20 years to find a reality show hit. Once they did, they just tried to clone Wars,with Steampunk-ed and a spin-off show called Skin Wars:Fresh Paint. Even worse for GSN, Wars numbers are cooling with woman, and men tiring of the non-sexualized female models being painted on the show, not being showcased like a Deal or No Deal model. This is the height of Davis's reign, other than being smart enough to buy the Feud reruns, in the first place.

The network hoped to find more comedy based,knock-offs, that succeed like Feud.This lead to failed clones like, Mind Of A Man with Empire alum Dee Ray Davis or Top Ten Fact Stacker, Winsanity with former Scrubs star Donald Faison.

Putting a man back in charge proves, "that Wu Tang Clan ain't nothing to fuck with" and launch games that appeal to men without running off the ladies,like in the glory days of Head TV programmer Bob Boden. His reign lead to a Renaissance of gaming. It included critical acclaimed and popular games: quizzers Russian Roulette, Friend or Foe and the rerun abused Whammy!,the all new Press Your Luck w/ Emmy winner Todd Newton. Three shows that need to be relaunched, pronto.

The new guy can launch the Feud clones properly with outright looking, like their doing that. This could lead to buying reruns of Wipeout- the hilarious Double Dare style game show, hosted by John Henson & Anderson. Also, another show in this vein, Oh Sit!, basically an indoor knockoff of Wipeout, but as big money musical chairs. The new guy can also launch sex based puzzle games in untried territory, like late night or bring back the prime time interactive games (phone/web) that kept viewers glued to see if they won, during the commercials.

Scum-bag elect Donald J. Trump said, about Hilary Clinton.....on the Epic Rap Battles of History. "We need a STRONG male leader" who deliver games that's appealing to men that satisfy woman- without making stupid,youth chasing programming decisions- that alienate everyone (like Trump himself) and as the Cinema Sins YouTube site deduced, ".....Reasons?!"
