I haven't seen them in the system myself, but this afternoon, BUZZR announced that the 1986 Strike It Rich - a show I didn't even know was under their umbrella - will be streaming on Amazon.

Well this one certainly comes out of left field. Loved this show, glad it's seeing light of day again!

Wow.

Some Wiki-research shows that the British adaptation was produced by Thames (edit: the late 90s reboot was produced by Grundy/Fremantle outright). I wonder if the worldwide format rights were eventually acquired by Fremantle through their purchase of Thames' assets.
And after all the violence and double talk,
there's just a song in all the trouble and the strife...

That could open the door to other K&F shows.  IIRC, Third Degree and Vicki's Win Lose or Draw on NBC has never been seen in reruns either. 

Joker's Wild (the game of definitions) has been rerun on cable.  Did Break the Bank? And what versions of WLOD outside on Convy's brief run on GSN were rerun?

Well, in some of the examples you cited, there might be a cross ownership problem.  Bert & Burt had a hand in both the shows you mentioned, IIRC.

Break the Bank aired on CBN.   I think only Convy syndicated episodes were reran; no Weller either.

When GSN ran WLOD, they acquired it from Buena Vista/Disney, so they probably still own it.

Win, Lose, or Draw aired on USA in the early-90s, but I think they aired Weller episodes too. I definitely remember seeing episodes with the $5,000 bonus round.

I forgot that Disney and Burt & Bert had a hand in those.  I assume Pictionary reruns are not wholly owned by K & F either in that regard.

I think Pictionary is owned by NBC for the 1989 version and CBS for the Thicke version.

Disney did a version of WLOD a few years ago, so I'd definitely say they still own it.

Don't know if this is new or a recurring thing, but I happened to flip over to Buzzr, and their entire 7:00pm ET hour has been informercials for a child cleft lip repair charity.

That's been happening on Saturday evening from time to time.

For what it's worth, I thought I'd check to see if these eps were live on Prime this morning. Not yet. No bandit no bandit no bandit

Strike It Rich is on Amazon Prime now. 19 episodes throughout its run. It's not all continuous.

The surprise in the set is the 19th episode listed, which appears to be an earlier taped show with different rules. The couples automatically see each prize, and then try to stop the Bandit, which moves sequentially through each active monitor, with a slap of the button. Charlie O is on the mic, the bandit has no laugh, and his simple design looks like it would be more at home in a game of Berzerk than it does here. In the bonus, the payoffs were $1,000 for 3 dollar signs, $2,000 for 4, a new car for 5 and a pair of new cars for 6.

I hasten to say pilot, because Broadcasting & Cable had pictures & artist renderings of a pilot with three arches, three couples, and money scoring.
