That's too bad. We were hoping for a rotating panel that would feature the casts of “Duck Dynasty,” “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” and any panelists still alive from “Match Game 73.”



Potato, patah-toe: A Washington, D.C., couple is suing British Airways because it ruined their vacation by sending them to the Caribbean island of Grenada, instead of Granada in Spain.
