According to the Associated Press, Shepherd will take over the reins of the long-running game show when it returns to the GSN in November. Presumably GSN felt that Shepherd, with her bubbly (or some might say bubble-headed) on-air personality, would be a zingier presence on the show than its previous host, Carnie Wilson, who left the job after just one year, and filed a suit against the network last month.

news broke that Carnie Wilson would be leaving her post as host of GSN’s The Newlywed Game, I had some mixed emotions.I love the Game Show Network. I realize this is a bold statement coming from someone (way) under the age of 50. But in the two weeks after I graduated college, I literally sat on the couch all day every day watching GSN. I can’t help it! I’m obsessed with reruns of the classics ($25,000 Pyramid, Password, Card Sharks etc.), and I’m even a fan of some of the new shows (just try and give me a Lingo puzzle I can’t solve). So when the
My first feeling was one of joy. Have you seen GSN’s recent revival of the show? It pales in comparison to the days of Bob Eubanks. The questions are just downright silly. (Yes, even sillier than they used to be, if you can imagine that.) And there’s this ridiculous tie-in to eHarmony’s 29 dimensions of compatibility.

Ugo.com has up a fun gallery of game-show hosts and the movie roles they’ve played, both as themselves and — in some cases — in dramatic acting roles you might never have envisioned them in. (Dick Clark as a robber in 1968’s Killers Three? Ack!) What’s most notable to me, though, is the regularity with which Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek once popped up in various movies, from quick drive-bys in 1991’s Dying Young and 2000’s Charlie’s Angels to — my favorite — a hefty subplot in White Men Can’t Jump concerning Rosie Perez’s trivia savant character. (Jeopardy! announcer Johnny Gilbert: “A former disco queen, originally from Brooklyn, N.Y….Gloria Clemente.” See clip after the jump.) READ FULL STORY
