Last May, nothing was farther off my radar than ABC’s weekly (and weakly-received) National Bingo Night. I saw those promos and thought, “What next, Regional Polka Expo?”

Fast forward to today’s strike-ravaged TV landscape, which finds NBN‘s producer in a recycling mood, and me willing to watch anything.

Like this, which will star Patrick Duffy (pictured).

My reaction to this news, literally, was: “Please let the strike end soon because this lamebrain programming has got to stop — wait, I can win money while I watch? Hell yes, I’ll tune in!”

Tell me, PopWatchers, will you be trying your luck in March when Game Show Network’s Bingo America debuts?
