Title: Mild changes to the GSN schedule...
Post by: aaron sica on June 12, 2006, 07:53:16 PM
Starting July 3, afternoon will now look like this (all times EST)

2pm: Card Sharks (Perry)
2:30: Card Sharks (Eubanks)
3pm: Lingo
3:30: Match Game '70s
4pm: Super Password
4:30: Family Feud (Dawson)
5pm: Millionaire
6pm: Hollywood Squares (Bergeron)
6:30: I've got a Secret (Dwyer)

Bill Rafferty's CS now goes to the 9am-10am hour on Saturdays and Sundays.
Greed will air at 9pm Thursdays.
The Collyer "Beat the Clock" will air at 3am.

The SP hour on weekends, now airing at 5pm and 5:30, will air at 6 and 6:30 as Millionaire will be on at 5pm, 7 days a week.

Also, they are trotting out something new: "The 50 Greatest Game Shows of All Time" airing Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays 10-11pm for 7 weeks, beginning July 17.

Finally, a reason for me to order the sports tier and get GSN back. This sounds awesome!
I'll bet at the GSN boards people will start compiling their 50-show wish lists.

I wonder if Dwyer's IGAS will keep both the 11:30pm & 3:00am EDT slots or if maybe the 3:00 one might see the return of B&W IGAS?

EDIT:  It looks like the B&W Overnight hour WILL be restored with Collyer's "Beat the Clock" in for Dwyer's IGAS at 3am EDT.

I don't think so.  SP currently airs at 2PM ET, so Perry CS replaces it and SP moves to two hours later.

Actually, we don't know what's going to be scheduled from 4pm-5pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Perhaps that will still be the "Feud Hour", with one episode of each show.

It would appear so.  As much as I like that version, my opinion differs now from when Fleming ran GSN.  This show could use a rest.  Well, so can the Dawson version, really (that version needs a rest even more).

Wow!  The "50 Greatest Games of All-Time" starting July 17th sure sounds like a winner & a good time-waster at 10 PM during those hot summer nights for 7 weeks.  I have a feeling at least 50% of my favoritte shows will show up on it(not divulging any speciffic number at this point).  If they do show TPIR, I'd be very surprised because they haven't run a single episode out of there in years

Let's see.  21 hour-long installments or 42 half-hours covering fifty shows.  I would guess the latter.

What I would like to see is a year-by-year overview of all game shows, that way the unsung get their due instead of just the well known.  Any shows without clips would be represented by photographs from the Westbrook collection.  Doing the show chronologically would allow for new episodes covering subsequent years.

Post by: Scott on June 13, 2006, 03:20:55 PM
Interesting schedule.  The Lingo/MG hour is the only non-casualty of the change.  Plus, we get double CS, including the return of Perry!  (Although, I'm kinda gonna miss seeing the Rafferty Syndie run.  I've grown rather attatched to seeing Mr. Land of Parting Gifts at the 2:30 slot.)

Also, say adios to George's Weakest Link.  Kinda sad, too.  I was hoping we'd see the second season eps on GSN.  They've been attatched to the $75,000 episodes ever since they acquired Syndie Link.

I'm afraid GSN wants to do one of those "I Love The..." formatted shows where they do a countdown of 50 shows, show 30-60 seconds of footage then spend much longer time with the usual comedians and D-list celelebrities doing the usual wandering commentary on said shows.

Screw the D-listers, just get about 30 or 40 of us in a room and let US do their color commentaries!!

And if they brought back TJW and TTD and also the 1968-75 WML and 1969-78 TTTT that would be cool. And NBC-Universal should get the anchors out of their pants and reduce the price to air Concentration so we can see all versions of the show on GSN.

Right now those tapes are generating ZERO revenue.  Something tells me NBC-U may consider an offer that gets them something for them.

Nah, I'm betting we're looking at another VH-1 list show, which seems to be all they ever carry these days. (And more and more channels are carrying them. In the kingdom of the million channels, the five-second stop is king).

Given Occam's Razor, there are two likely possibilities:

1) GSN hasn't made them any offers, in which case someone needs to deliver unto them a proper cockpunch, or

2) NBC does indeed place a value on those tapes currently generating nothing, and GSN has not made them an offer of that size.

I know not NBC's motive for the latter, nor do I know if it's reasoned or intelligent, but I'm leaning in that direction.

The Prof has added several item to his 'breaking news' section (http://tvgameshows.net/breakingnews.htm (http://\"http://tvgameshows.net/breakingnews.htm\")): Body Language replaces TTTT'90 at 9:30AM beginning July 31st.  Finally, GSN pulls a show out of the vaults for a schedule change rather than just move existing shows around!  Also, Chain Reaction and Starface debut Aug. 1st from 9 to 10PM Tuesday through Sunday ('Chain' gets encores at the overnight 3:00AM time slot on Thursdays/Fridays and a 2:30PM slot on weekends) and some other stuff gets moved around weekend afternoons ('Lingo,' 'Love Connection,' etc.).  Looks like we have to remove the 'mild' from this title thread.

Glad to see the return of Body Language. An awesome show, if I do say so myself. But I may be saying that only because it was the first game show I watched religiously...

I mean, I'm fine with T.T.T.T. taking an exit, because I've seen all of these epsiodes. I thought T.T.T.T. '80 was going to take its place, though...

WTF?! English, Steve! His attempt to make a cute analogy makes the sentence very awkward to read, not to mention there's absolutely no significant punctuation (not counting the period is "vs." or the exclamation point in "Jeopardy!". Some things are just better left unsaid.

"Chain Reaction" met the same fate as many other game shows that were scheduled against 'The Young and the Restless," cancellation after only a few weeks.

If you'll pardon me, I'm going to ring up the South County Journal and see if they need an editor.

Not to pile on too much, but Y&R had moved to 1pm in Feb of 80, a couple of weeks after CR debuted.  Many markets delayed Y&R to 1 even before that. For CR  clearance was probably the biggest problem.  In my home state of Michigan, not one NBC affiliate cleared the show.

I don't speak Beverlese (damn that actually works), but I guess he's saying that after NBC moved "Jeopardy" in 1974, anything they scheduled against Y&R crashed and burned. If he had left the Forest Lawn reference out, it might've made sense.

That's more or less what he was saying.  People got tired of "Jackpot!" quickly, switched over to "Y&R" at a critical point in a new soap's life (since networks would give new soaps a year to prove themselves before considering cancellation, since it was considered that soaps needed a longer time to build up buzz) and stayed at CBS.  NBC never really recovered at noon after that.

Bumping this up for a question...

Body Language is going to take the place of TTTT on July 31. It's already been stated that the schedule changes will take place on July 3. Is it possible Da Perf's info was wrong, and ALL those changes will take place on July 31? The reason I ask is because no online TV listings show the new afternoon lineup for July 3. My DVR doesn't show it, Zap2it doesn't show it, TV Guide online doesn't show it.

Post by: Chelsea Thrasher on June 25, 2006, 07:03:22 PM
The easiest way is to go by-show.  Click on a show title, for example, Super Password.  (However, you can only do this on the old version of the listings grid so far as I've found)  You should see airings until, near the end of July at this point.  And they show the timeshift occuring on July 17.

If they have the data already into the system, there's probably some way to manipulate it to display a grid showing that far in advance (as used to be done to Adlink once upon a time), but I personally am just not interested enough in spending actual time trying to manipulate a website just to get advance listings for a TV channel,

Especially given that that's a Tuesday.  I can't exactly say I've heard of many schedule changes happening on a day of the week other than Monday or Saturday except in cases of a show lease expiring, which certainly doesn't *appear* to be the case here.

OK, I just asked GSN and they told me August 1st.  Therefore, I have absolutely no idea what is going on.

Especially given that that's a Tuesday.  I can't exactly say I've heard of many schedule changes happening on a day of the week other than Monday or Saturday except in cases of a show lease expiring, which certainly doesn't *appear* to be the case here.
[/quote]

The only exception I've ever seen to that is a schedule change which happened 4/1/99 (in which either P+, SP or both returned to weekdays), and that fell on Thursday.

They wouldn't premiere "Starface" on a Monday because of their casino programming that evening. I don't think the High Stakes Poker will be done by then.

That was also the day that GSN's original "Burt Luddin's Love Buffet" debuted.

Sorry to bring up a painful memory...

So my Comcast DVR Guide has the changes made for 7/17. I can't go any further than 7/21, so I don't know about a weekend schedule.

I see no Body Language on the schedule though...it's still TTTT at 9:30am eastern. Interestingly, and I'm sure this is an error, the info for H2 gives a date of (1968) before the description. I know we saw a brief Marshall HS clip in the 50 Greatest promos, but I doubt it's the classic version again.

Does anyone have a reliable source for the replacement of TTTT with BL? That would be a welcome change. Or a TJW/TTD hour at 9am, but that's completely wishful.

Everywhere I have read says that BL will be coming on the schedule on July 31. Whether it really is or not, I guess we'll have to wait and see...I certainly hope so!

It's offical!!

The first GSN shed. change will start on July 17; according to GSN.com
Which features:
2pm: Card Sharks (Perry)
2:30: Card Sharks (Eubanks)
3pm: Lingo
3:30: Match Game '70s
4pm: Super Password
4:30: Family Feud (Dawson)
5pm: Millionaire
6pm: Hollywood Squares
6:30: I've got a Secret (2006)

Don't worry about Combs' Feud, It might still be on Weekends as the Feud Hour is still there; according to Zap2It

Here's the interesting thing, although it's probably just a goof on the DVR.........The 6pm airings of HS are listed with an air date of 1968 on them with a different description than the weekend airings...Is it somehow possible the classic HS episodes are coming back?

Davidson Squares, anyone? :-P

I just checked a few episode guides for you.

Today's Eubanks CS episode was from March 7, 1986. Audience polls were added in July, and the car game was added in October.

The weekday Super Password is from July 1986; don't know the exact day.

My Comcast guide just went to 7/31 yesterday. The only change from the 7/17 schedule is the addition of Body Language at 9:30am, replacing TTTT90. Yay! (This is as previously announced, but I didn't see a confirmation from anyone.)

Also, looks like BtC is permanently at the 3am timeslot, 7 days a week. I hadn't paid much attention to that before, so that change probably already happened.

Still wishing for a TTD/TJW hour. Dust them tapes off, GSN!

Pat Manning's backwards logic appears in a couple of days (if not already happening), which was the only reason why I remember this week in particular (I just so happened to tape his first three matches on a weekend in 1999/2000).

glad to see they haven't started back in 1978, maybe now we can get to 1981 without any interruptions...

Even though she was the executive producer, the one thing that irritated the hell out of me during her years was her camera hogging, esp. when the intro would say "Starring Whoopi Goldberg". However, I did actually like the rotating center square concept.

Me too. I'm sure it wasn't this way for real but it seemed to me that when another star got picked for a question, and that star gave their funny line, they cut to Whoopi for her reaction every. single. time.

Post by: FeudDude on July 20, 2006, 11:56:58 AM
Whoopi never really did much for me, and I agree about the "camera hogging".  When she left,  the show seemed to become more about having fun and not so much about ego-stroking.

I also thought rotating the center squares was a good idea, and while I like Martin Mull, I don't think he was center square material.  I would say season 6 as a whole was a step down from season 5, even though I liked the straddling format.  But I guess that's what happens when a show is on its last legs.
Title: Mild changes to the GSN schedule...
Post by: PYLW on July 20, 2006, 01:18:35 PM
Then who would've been good center square material? I think Martin Mull was the only person not doing anything, so that's why they made him center square. :P

Damn, Mark. Don't hold back, tell us how you really feel...

Going back to my statement, I actually do like Whoopi outside of her show, but on the show, I felt she let her EP power go to her head. The show flowed much better after she left.

Well, that's fine, but that also completely personifies why GSN shouldn't do it. If people are going to complain that they're not getting the TJW they want instead of being appreciative that they're at least reverting to the classic game show lineup that we all enjoyed back in the day, then why even program to throw them a bone? If I was in Cronin's shoes, I sure wouldn't.

I'm not saying people should fall to their knees and thank the deity of their choosing every time GSN so much as hints at airing classic shows (like people seem to be doing over this Fifty Greatest Shows series - for God's sake, people actually WANTED to see Studs?), but if something as seemingly-sought-after as TJW were to come back, turning up your nose and saying "But you're airing the WRONG ONES!" seems really whiny to me.

It might, but I'm still not getting a reasonable explanation as to what would be wrong about it. I'm getting one that might apply to a few tape collectors, but if we haven't gotten the point across yet that the taping contingent doesn't count for enough to matter, then we're not going to, and we have no common ground on which to engage in rational discourse.

I mean, really. If the World Series Of Go Fish or Two Hours Of Horseface Begging For People To Blow A Buck To Talk To A Real Live Girl were to be yanked off the air tomorrow (heh, he said "yanked off"), and replaced with an hour of TJW (and at first I was going to qualify here that I am excluding the Finn version, but you know what? I'm not. Even if it WAS the Finn version) and TTD (yes, even with Patrick Wayne), would that not be a net improvement?
