Buzzr showed me that there's at least 2 shows I can enjoy this way: Dawson Feud, on one-after-the-other late at night, is hard to put down.
Since the introduction of the Feud Classics channel, I'll often sit down with a different TV watching plan, but the splash on my screen will tempt me and I'll instead choose to knock back two or three or five of those.

Im very much enjoying Break the Bank. The game itself is so good, the celebrities are just a bonus. Or in the case of some, a detractor.

I binged on Trebek Double Dare when it was on Amazon. Lots of games carried over, some champions were funny characters, and it was a hoot to see Spoilers a few times in a row. Man, a reboot could be great.

Jim Perry with Card Sharks and $ale.

And thinking outside the box a bit, no pun intended, Bill Cullen's "Three on a Match".  There was (any maybe still is) about 5 to 7 episodes, most involving one champion Fred Abrahams.  I adored the show as a youth back in the early 70s and was so tickled to have found a few full episodes of this lost NBC gem.

Blockbusters with Cullen is another I could binge on.  I love the trivia aspect of the game.  The strategy part isn't too bad either.  My only gripe was the Gold Rush (later Gold Run) end game seemed a tad too easy to win.  The Rafferty version was okay, but prefer Cullen's.

Rayburn Match Game '73 through some of '78 is another I could binge watch.  '74 to '76 or '77 was the peak of the show for me.  I never cared for the syndicated Match Game episodes at all.

Back around the Christmas holidays, I guess I did some weekend binging of The Liars Club ‐‐ mostly the 70s version on YT.

With all the different items they used, works of art, and yet another show where Betty White can really be a bit naughty while still flying under the radar --  even better if hubby Allen was hosting.!

Watching GSN right now and America Says is on. Its really come into its own as a fun show to watch on a weekend afternoon. Id add most of GSNs current originals.

Not exactly a game show, but Shark Tank too.

I lean more toward the English side. I try to watch as much of the current iteration of Catch Phrase whenever Im able to, and I also like to watch older episodes of Countdown in bunches.

I could binge watch Hollywood Squares just to see the different celebs on it. Given my username, I could also binge on IGAS, Blockbusters and Child's Play.
