    From PR newswire:

    "PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- GSN, the network for games, is
    bringing back one of the most successful game shows of all-time, I'VE GOT A
    SECRET. Premiering Monday, April 17 from 11:00-11:30 PM ET/PT, the updated
    series will feature a panel with its own unique chemistry and will air Monday
    through Friday in the time period. The announcement was made today at the
    Television Critics Association's Winter Press Tour by Ian Valentine, Senior
    Vice President of Programming, GSN.
    "I am very excited to announce that GSN will air a fresh new version of
    the popular game show, I'VE GOT A SECRET," said Valentine. "Our audience will
    enjoy a smart, hilarious new panel, and a bevy of crazy and fun secrets."
    Putting a new twist on an old classic, I'VE GOT A SECRET includes an
    eclectic foursome including today's most outrageous comics, a Broadway dancer
    and an ex Major League Baseball player.
    I'VE GOT A SECRET is hosted by Bil Dwyer (EXTREME DODGEBALL, THAT 70'S
    HOUSE), who is charged with keeping his panelists in line. The panelists
    include Frank DeCaro (Sirius Radio's "The Frank DeCaro Show", "The Daily Show
    with Jon Stewart"), Suzanne Westenhoefer ("Late Show with David Letterman",
    "Politically Incorrect"), Jermaine Taylor (Broadway actor and dancer) and
    Billy Bean (former outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Detroit Tigers)."

    I know at least 3 of the 4 new panelists has a "secret"...why isn't GSN mentioning it?

    Hmmmm. Well, Frank DeCaro is no secret, so it can't be that.

    If they continued with the original plan, the fourth one has the same secret. The selling point originally was an all-gay panel.

    Well, that's what I'm questioning. They obviously assembled an all-gay panel, so why doesn't the press release state that fact, instead of using code words like "eclectic"?

    I really want to get a season pass to the new show, but it also includes the older version of this show. :mad:

    The program guide information for this show doesn't include original-air-date, so TiVo can't do First Run Only (it records all episodes instead).
