Can we stop doing this now?: Our 1000th Post!

Normally you check out The Nostalgia Blog to get a half-assed summary of some obscure pop culture reference from your childhood…or you are an advertising robot who is promoting some very random product in our comment section. Either way we want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of our readers! We really enjoy writing this blog and although we might not be putting out as much content as we have in the past (I mean what the hell happened to our Throwback Thursday videos?) we will keep on writing if you keep on reading. A special thanks to sites like The Credible Hulk who promote the shit out of our posts weekly. We really appreciate that. Thanks again for the all the support and please like us on Facebook, Follow us on Twitter and check out our YouTube page (before it gets shut down for another year and a half…that was fun).

You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye.

If there is such a thing as a one hit wonder of television, The Weakest Link would be it. Premiering in 2001 on NBC, this show was an instant hit with a catchphrase that became immortalized in pop-culture. “You are the weakest link….goodbye!” The NBC version (American version) was adapted from the British version which was highly successful and ran for over a decade. The NBC show only lasted for 2 years (3 seasons). Ratings were solid off the get go, but quickly started to drop. I think that’s the case with most game shows really. NBC tried to entice viewers to tune-in with celebrity versions but ratings were even worse on those episodes. Soon after the show was cancelled. I guess it was the weakest link of game shows….goodbye.
