[[http://gameshowgarbage.com/ Game Show Garbage]] (GSG) is a website created in 2009 by Robert Q. Seidelman. The best way to describe GSG is basically that it's Website/{{WrestleCrap}} for the worst in {{Game Show}}s.

In 2014, the site expanded to add [[http://tooncrap.blogspot.com/ Tooncrap]] (a blog about terrible cartoons) and Video Game Garbage (same, but with video games).

!!This website provides examples of:
* AprilFoolsDay: As a joke, Seidelman "inducted" ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'' by painting it as a bad show. The fact he's bashed the show in the past, though, makes it feel less like a joke.
* {{Crossover}}: Seidelman made a rare video review of ''Think Fast'' with WebVideo/TheHardcoreKid.
* DeadpanSnarker: Seidelman himself, as well as [[WhatAnIdiot/GameShows Dumb Answer of the Week]] correspondent Jim Williams.
* {{Homage}}: The site's layout is one to Wrestlecrap.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin: Unfortunately.
* RunningGag: Several.
** Seidelman's OverlyLongScream whenever the host is revealed to be Pat Bullard. Also used when the host of ''Hidden Agenda'' was revealed to be Debi Gutierrez, and when the webmaster suggested Jack Wagner for a "The Price Is WRONG Month".
** "Thank you, High." A picture of High, the dice-rolling monkey from the 1986 ''Series/HighRollers'' pilot, {{Face Palm}}ing whenever an IncrediblyLamePun shows up (even from [[SelfDeprecation Seidelman himself]]).
** "[[{{Botchamania}} SEND FOR THE MAN]]!", whenever a show or host is "corpsing" (i.e., "failing").
* ShoutOut: The ''Burt Luddin's Love Buffet'' induction ended with Seidelman saying "THIS SHOW SUCKS!" in an homage to ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall''.
