High Stakes Poker Returns


If you're a "High Stakes Poker" fan, remember that the new season airs on Saturdays, not Sundays, beginning tonight at 7pm CT on GSN. Hopefully, the often-annoying-and-not-as-funny-as-he-thinks-he-is Norm McDonald (who's replacing Gabe Kaplan in the booth) will say as little as possible and we'll get to hear more of the player interaction. That's the key to making "HSP" work -- yes, it's about big bucks and clever strategy, but the show is best when there's lots of table talk. And I wouldn't mind a little more Kara Scott, too.
