The article failed to mention that Johnathan hosted a short-lived syndicated game show called "Ruckus" in 1991.
It failed to mention it because

1. "syndication" in this case was to exactly one station, WNBC in New York.

2. Almost nobody except GSN viewers around the Dark Period (or thereabouts) ever saw the thing, apparently.
