Welcome back to The Blog Is Right everyone! For this week’s article, I have decided to spotlight a few game shows that you should check out for the next two weeks, as well as a schedule of game shows coming on this week. Enjoy!

The Newlywed Game Davy Jones Special
In remembrance of The Monkees front man Davy Jones, GSN will air a special encore episode of The Newlywed Game featuring Jones and his wife, Telemundo actress Jessica Pacheco, on March 6. Davy Jones passed away in a hospital in Florida almost a week ago on February 29 due to a heart attack. This special episode, which originally aired on January 21, 2010 with Carnie Wilson as the host, also featured celebrity couples Jonny Fairbanks (“Survivor”) Michelle Deighton (“America's Next Top Model”) and Ronn Moss (“The Bold and the Beautiful”) with Devia DeVasquez (actress-model and former Playboy Playmate). Stay tuned for the re-airing of this special episode on March 6 at 7:00pm on GSN! Check out the first part of the special episode in the clip below!


New Seasons of The Newlywed Game and Baggage
GSN’s original shows, The Newlywed Game and Baggage, have been renewed to return for brand new seasons. Sherri Shepherd returns to the helm as the host of The Newlywed Game as the GSN revival series enters into its fourth season. GSN has ordered 41 episodes for the new season, that are guaranteed to be filled with interesting couples, personal question, an d often surprising answers. On a quick side note, Sherri Shepherd will be competing on the upcoming season of ABC’s hit dancing competition series Dancing With The Stars. 

Speaking of talk show hosts hosting game shows, Jerry Springer opens up a new set of personal baggage on a new season of Baggage. GSN has ordered 60 brand new episodes of Baggage, as the show enters into its third season. It is no surprise that this show has been renewed for another season, especially after the show entered into syndication in select cities and markets. Stay tuned for the season premiere of The Newlywed Game, which premieres on March 12 at 6:00pm, and Baggage, which premieres on March 14 at 6:00pm, on GSN.

New Episodes of Cash Cab 
The Emmy Award-winning game show, Cash Cab, is currently airing new episodes from Monday to Thursday and next week. On Cash Cab, contestants are surprised with the news that they are on a game show upon entering the cab. Host and driver Ben Bailey gives the contestants a chance to win cold hard cash by answering general knowledge question while arriving to their destination. The catch is if a contestant answers too many questions incorrectly, they will be kicked out the cab on the spot and win nothing. Who will step out of the Cash Cab with a fistful of cash? Stay tuned for all new episodes of Cash Cab this week on the Discovery Channel at 9:00am and 9:30am.

America's Game on Wheel of Fortune 
All this week, Wheel of Fortune celebrates the U.S.A. with the “America’s Game” theme. Contestants this week will have a chance to win cash and prizes on the Wheel, including a trip to Lake Tahoe, a trip to San Francisco, and even a 2012 Kia Soul, with the ½ Car Tags in play. Join Pat Sajak and Vanna White on Wheel of Fortune this week as they celebrate the red, white, and blue (and a little bit of green) by playing “America’s Game”! Check your local listings.
