    Food Network
    Have you ever thought you could host your own show? Food Network tests that belief in this competition that focuses on both cooking proficiency and camera skills.

    Season nine resets, in a way, to season six. The finalist head count is back down to twelve. Alton Brown, Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis return as mentors, but back from behind the committee table. They will not run teams head-to-head this year. Each day's challenges, however, now number three, up from two. A new Mentor Challenge, a newly positioned Star Challenge, and a first ever Elimination Challenge. Continuing from last season is the viewer-voted winner, and brand new to this season are focus groups made up of Food Network fans and the chance for one eliminated chef to come back in the finale. Through it all the finalists must always demonstrate the overarching theme of this competition: excellence in the kitchen, ability to share their points of view, and an on-camera that will enthrall fans and newbies alike. Join the fun as the brightest stars from the network and select special guest stars coach these hopefuls toward their dream.

    The winner is awarded his or her own Food Network show produced by the team leader, and a feature in Food Network Magazine. Produced by CBS Eye Too Productions.

    Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?

    Follow
    PBS (ended 1995)
    Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, based on the popular computer game, was first seen in September of 1991 and became one of the most popular kids' game shows of all time. The series aired on PBS, probably the best place to reach it's target audience. Like the computer game, the game show's basic purpose was to ultimatly capture the head of an international crime syndicate. In this case, the head was Carmen Sandiego and in each episode she would send one of her henchmen out to steal a national landmark. The contestants job was to use their knowlegde of geography to track each criminal from country to country and city to city with the goal of capturing the henchman, restoring the landmark to it's home, and whom ever got enough points would have the chance to capture Carmen. The game show was hosted by Greg Lee and the contestants were given orders from The Chief, played by Lynne Thigpen, who ran the ACME Detective Agency. Rockapella was the singing group that sang the popular theme song and helped give the contestants clues. The V.I.L.E. Henchmen
    Carmen's henchman consisted of Vic the Slick, The Contessa, Robocrook, Top Grunge, Eartha Brute, Patty Larceny and Double Trouble. The Contessa left at the end of the 1st season and returned in the 4th season with a new look. At the beginning of the second season, Kneemoi and Wonder Rat joined the ranks of the other henchman, followed by Sarah Nade in the 3rd Season. In 1996, the original format of the series came to an end. That fall, the series was redesigned and renamed Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?
    Theme Song: "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?"

    TLC (ended 2008)
    The first and best home decorating show, and certainly the most copied show of it's kind, ended its run in December 2008 after 8 years. Host Paige Davis, 2 talented professional designers and 1 or 2 skilled carpenters were given just 2 days and a thousand dollars each week to help 1 person and their friend or relative improve a room belonging to another person, usually a neighbor, while that same other person and their friend or relative had a go at improving the first persons room in return. The journey was much of the fun as both the viewer and the homeowners learned new ways to remake their rooms in innovative ways, while wondering if the homeowners would love or hate their new rooms! Ever sit in a friend or relative's home and wish you could strip or paint the walls, take up the floor, sew and replace fabric on the couch or chairs? Well this show was for you... Trading Spaces was a design show based on the British series Changing Rooms. For the first 4 seasons, the show took two sets of neighbors, and they switched one room in each other's home. They were given a $1,000 budget and they only had two days to completely redesign their neighbor's room. They were assigned a designer and shared a carpenter. Starting with season 5, the neighbors and the designer got to choose the room and if they get the right room Paige picked, they would get extra money (usually twice the normal $1000) for the room. But they still only had two days to completely redesign their neighbor's room after the prep day. They still were not allowed back in to their own rooms until the two days are up. At the end of each episode, the host would sit down to talk with the designers about the room they just finished. Then, the host took the owners into their rooms, with their eyes closed, and revealed the room to them. Will they like the design? Will they hate them? Will they get rid of the design... The answer could be surprising during the reveal. During season 5 and continuing through season 7, Paige Davis was dropped from the show and a host-less format took over, with the designers and carpenters serving most of the functions Paige had done so well. The show continued, but seemed to loose focus, as the producers tried a number of changes to the format. They added a 2nd carpenter to each show in several seasons, added several of the designers and carpenters from the sister show While You Were Out to the roster, but ratings continued to stay low. So in season 8 the producers replaced everyone except Laura Day and Frank Bialec and one carpenter with a handful of new designers & 2 new male carpenters. The ratings must have nosedived because after less than half a season was shown, the new network bosses at TLC fired the production company and convinced Paige Davis and a 1/2 dozen of the most popular designers and carpenters to return to the show and see if going back to basics could restore the popularity the show had lost when Ms. Davis was let go. With the best talent on the show again, could the magic happen again! Apparently not, as the show was canceled after two more short seasons were shown. Some of the last season episodes were moved to a morning time-slot which probably lost the viewers that still remained. It was apparently a case of fixing the mistakes made to make the show without Paige Davis a little too late to recapture the audience that had moved on to other decorating shows during her absence.

    GSN - Game Show Network
    TV Rating:
    Canada: (Varies by episode from G to 14+)
    USA: (Varies by episode from TV-G to TV-14) Lingo is the word game that's taken the Game Show Network by storm. Hosted by Chuck Woolery (Greed/Love Connection/Scrabble), with assistance by 2004 Miss America, Shandi Finnessey, who directs the play and acts as word judge. The team in control has up to 5 chances to guess the mystery word. The first letter is provided to start. Each guess must be spelt out, and must begin with the given letter. It doesn't really matter what word is said, as long as they spell a five-letter word. The board will then indicate whether each letter is in the word and if it is in the right place. The team that gets the word will then draw two Lingo balls that correspond to their own board. To get a Lingo you need 5 across, up and down, or diagonally. The team will lose control if they fail to spell a five letter word, if they run out of time, if they draw a red ball, or if they haven't correctly answered after five attempts. The point values are 25 for a word and 50 for a LINGO. In round 2 the points are doubled and 3 "?" balls are added, which act as wild cards. This means that they can be used anywhere on the Lingo board. Bonus Lingo: The team that wins then goes on to play bonus Lingo. They get two minutes to try to guess as many words as they possibly can - this time instead of 1 letter they get 2 letters to start each word, with an option to enter bonus letters which help them. They get 1 bonus letter for winning the game and 1 for every Lingo they get during the game. In this round, the team gets $100 and one LINGO ball for each word they get right. A new board is presented with 12 spaces already filled. They then draw those balls for the chance to win $5,000. If a team gets a LINGO on the first pull, prizes are as follows: Season 2: Trip to Jamaica and the $5000. Season 3: Trip to Lake Tahoe and the $5,000. Season 4: $10,000 cash. Season 5 forward: Progressive, starting at $10,000 and rising by $1,000 each game until won. Lingo became GSN's top rated original series of all time upon its debut, almost singlehandedly rescuing the network from ratings failure, and has retained that title through season 6. At the start of season 5, a new interactive Lingo tournament was added for viewers, who can compete for cash prizes, and a chance to play on future episodes. Some of the best contests have been between teams of online winners and former champions. There have been some celebrity and 'themed' episodes where the prizes were higher, and a tournament of champions at the end of season 3.moreless
