THIS IS TOTALLY NECESSARY

By 04.16.09

The Game Show Network is actually going to host and air the first-ever Game Show Awards to honor “classic and modern game shows.”  Now, I know what you’re thinking.  You’re thinking, “That sounds f-cking idiotic and pointless.”  But wait until you hear more about it before you rush to judgment.

Special honors are on tap for now-retired host of The Price is Right Bob Barker, Let’s Make a Deal‘s Monty Hall and game show producer Mark Goodson, who produced Price, Family Feud, I’ve Got a Secret and dozens of other programs…

The awards show will also be a game show itself, with the studio audience given a shot to win prizes by playing some of their favorite games on stage.

So, yeah.  F-cking idiotic and pointless.  Does Bob Barker really need to be honored?  It’s not like he did cancer research or saved lives or built schools in impoverished nations.  He read note cards and held a skinny microphone for a couple decades.  All things considered, I think banging the show models is more than enough of a reward.

Full list of nominees below.  “Oooh, Jeff Foxworthy! He brings such gravitas to that show with the functional retards!”
