WILLIAM G. STEWART: 1933-2017
Host of the Original "15 to 1"
From the Huffington Post

Former ‘Fifteen To One’ host William G Stewart has died at the age of 82.

The TV presenter’s agent, Julia Wyatt, confirmed the news of his death on Thursday (September 21), revealing that he died “after a brief illness”.

She said (via BBC News): “Sadly William G Stewart passed away peacefully this morning surrounded by his family after a brief illness.”

Although best known for his 15-year stint presenting the Channel 4 quiz show, which he did from 1988 until 2003, he also served as a TV producer and director.

Among the shows he worked on behind the scenes include the sitcoms ‘Love Thy Neighbour’ and ‘Bless This House’, as well as gameshows ‘The Price Is Right’ and ‘Family Fortunes’.

In fact, William was initially only supposed to be a producer on ‘Fifteen To One’, only agreeing to present it himself when plans to snare his top choice, Jonathan Ross, fell through.

Prior to breaking into the entertainment industry, William worked in the 1960s as a private secretary to the MP Tom Driberg, making a documentary about him in 2009.

Throughout his career, William never shied away from voicing his support for causes he believed in, such as when he gave a speech during one infamous episode of ‘Fifteen To One’ about how he felt the Elgin Marbles should be returned to Greece.

In 2009, he also appeared on ‘Daily Politics’ to speak in favor of the BBC license fee.

Fifteen To One was rebooted in 2013 for a celebrity special presented by The Last Leg host Adam Hills, and returned the following year with Sandi Toksvig at the helm. Both Hills and Toksvig have paid tribute to Stewart on Twitter, with other notable names from the world of quiz shows also paying their respects on social media.

Toksvig said: ‘Sad news about William Gladstone Stewart. A lovely man, a consummate TV professional and of course, host of 15 ot 1 long before I stepped up.’

The Last Leg host tweeted: ‘Farewell to William G Stewart. Even if I had three feet, I’d never have filled his shoes.’

Paul Sinha, comedian and Chaser on ITV game show The Chase, paid tribute saying: ‘RIP to William G Stewart, the perfect host of one of the greatest quiz shows ever.’

His fellow Chaser Anne Hegerty recalled her appearance on Fifteen To One and described Stewart as ‘brilliant’.

Eggheads star CJ de Mooi credited Stewart with launching his career in quiz shows.

‘So sad to hear about William G Stewart’s death. A lovely man who kindly encouraged and advised me. I wouldn’t have had a career without him,’ CJ said.

Voice-over artist and Quizmania presenter Greg Scott said: ‘Just heard of the passing of William G Stewart. So much more than merely a quiz host. A producer & director of huge standing and talent.’

Meanwhile Channel 4 released a statement saying: ‘We are saddened to hear the news about William G Stewart, whose inimitable style set 15 to 1 apart from all other quiz shows.

‘He was a broadcasting legend and our thoughts are with his friends and family.

William is survived by his five children, and his wife, Laura Calland, who previously worked as the voiceover artist on ‘Fifteen To One’.

He was married twice before, first to Audrey Harrison and later actress Sally Geeson, who he met while working on ‘Bless This House’.

Variety: Luke Bryan Joins "American Idol" Panel
From TV Line

Country singer Luke Bryan reportedly is on board to serve as a judge on Season 16 of American Idol, according to our sister site Variety. He joins anchor judge Katy Perry, whose deal for the ABC revival was confirmed in May.

As previously reported, Ryan Seacrest will return as host of Idol, which is slated to premiere in March 2018.

Word of Bryan’s hire comes just one week before auditions in front of the judges are set to get underway. (Open call auditions, which are not filmed for television and are conducted without the judging panel, have been underway since mid-August.) A third judge has yet to be named.

ABC declines to comment at this time.

Billy Off The Street
truTV Comic Quizzer Not Picked Up... Not Canceled Either?
From TV Line

Billy Eichner will no longer be stalking New York pedestrians — at least not on truTV’s dime.

Billy on the Street, Eichner’s long-running variety show, will not return to the basic cable network for Season 6, Variety reports. It has not, however, been cancelled.

Eichner on Tuesday first hinted that Billy on the Street would not continue on truTV, tweeting, “We have had a fantastic, life changing, Emmy-nominated time working with my friends at truTV and I can’t thank them enough. They’re the best.” A second statement indicated that the show would return, possibly in a new format or on a new network:

For those asking, yes BILLY ON THE STREET will be back! But we're shifting gears a bit...exciting things ahead...more will be revealed soon!
- @billyeichner


Billy on the Street first debuted on the cable channel Fuse back in Dec. 2011, where it ran for three seasons. Beginning with Season 4, the show made the leap to truTV, where it’s been airing since 2015. All five seasons are available to stream on Hulu.

In addition to Billy on the Street, Eichner is one-half of Hulu’s Difficult People, which releases its Season 3 finale on Tuesday, Sept. 26. It has not yet been renewed for Season 4.

"Wheel Of Fortune" Slot Creator Heads to the Hall
Game Joins Three Luminaries to Be Inducted October 4
From Las Vegas Review-Journal

A casino manager and philanthropist, the inventor of the automatic card shuffler, the man who brought “Wheel of Fortune” to casinos and a businessman who pioneered gaming along the Rancho Drive corridor and participated in the development of major Strip resorts will be inducted to the American Gaming Association’s Gaming Hall of Fame next month.

Diana Bennett, John Breeding, Joe Kaminkow and Melvin Wolzinger will be presented with the industry’s highest honor in an invitation-only ceremony Oct. 4 at the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas.

“The class of 2017 is quite special in the unique ways they shaped the casino-gaming industry,” said Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the association, which will bring about 26,000 industry professionals to the Sands Expo and Convention Center for its G2E show Oct. 3-5.

“From revolutionizing the way games are seen and experienced, to reshaping employee operations and business development, these leaders’ achievements extend throughout the nation and even the world,” Freeman said in a statement announcing the honorees.

The Gaming Hall of Fame, formed in 1989, has honored leaders who have distinguished themselves through significant contributions to the industry. This year, more than 100 people were nominated for the recognition with four selected by a committee of seven gaming industry stakeholders.

Joe Kaminkow was one of the pioneers of bringing pop culture into gaming. He led the industry’s development of slot machines tied to licensing brands from movies, television shows, quiz shows and personalities.

His most successful pairing of “Wheel of Fortune” to slot machines is a casino staple. He also brought “Sex and the City,” “Game of Thrones” and Britney Spears to slot designs.

Kaminkow founded his own online social gaming company before being tapped by Aristocrat to bring his games to the casino floors in an immersive experience with new-age cabinets.
