Title: Buzzr New Schedule 1/14
Post by: tvmitch on December 21, 2018, 07:22:41 AM
Cross-posting from Harvey's post on the Game Show News Facebook group, credits to him.

Looks like Buzzr has a new schedule starting 1/14. New additions include Match Game PM (starting in 1979!) and new episodes of Classic Concentration. Non-notable additions include the return of Temptation.

Also, from 2 to 3:30pm daily, it's an GSN-old-school P/P+/SP block.

Looks like if one changes the day in the hyperlink, it'll show the rest of the week, Name's the Same and Beat the Clock will get a rest.
A block resembling GSN's Black & White Overnight will air from 4:00am - 6:00am with WML, IGAS, and TTTT Monday - Friday.

So that would be with the new set and without Dawson. Haven't seen these in a while.

Looks like they have new eps of TTTT and WML as well. TTTT today (!/14) had a pinball spot and guest Nipsey Russell had a rhyme about pinball ready. WML had mystery guest Earl Wilson. One of the guests was a lady dressed like a drum major who was a doorman at the Miami Marriott.

Upon the panel being seated on TTTT, Garry said "We have our regular lineup of Cass, Cullen and Carlisle, otherwise known as pretty, witty and Kitty. You can decide who is which."

Trying to stomach an episode of Temptation as we speak.  I think I saw only one or two episodes back in the day.  And now I remember why I stopped watching this trainwreck pretty darn quick.

Today's episode saw one contestant get screwed out of an instant bargain, IMO, because they started the 5-second shot clock too soon, and they didnt credit her buzz-in in time even though she really only had about 3.5 seconds of the 5 to really decide.

The only good thing I'll credit Buzzr for doing to Temptation was editing out all the home viewer shopping segments.  But the show still was worse than I remember.

Depending on where in the run they are (and as I remember from the original airings, everything was shown so out of order that there may not actually be a determinable place in the run,) the original broadcast may have done the favor of editing out the home shopping on its own.

They air the episodes in taping order; the airdates on Buzzr's schedule are all totally wrong.

The first taped week aired March 3-7, 2008. Don't know if the Seen On Temptation plugs were still intact by then.

Today on TTTT we have Bert Convy joining the regulars. I think this is the only week he did with Garry. On WML, we have Joanna Barnes and Tony Roberts joining Arlene and Soupy. I never saw Tony on WML before.

They had something unusual on Temptation today - a male contestant. He proved to be quite the game player.

A few of the male contestants they had absolutely steamrolled the game. They accidentally cast a handful of game players instead of shoppers during the series, and those people had a pretty easy time winning cars.

In the double-run markets, their first undefeated champion was a guy who won a Jaguar. I didn't watch the show often, but I do remember another guy winning a Nissan Altima later in the run.

/It took $ale five years to go from luxury cars to more mainstream models

Nope, he won a Prius.

From what I've pieced together, Temptation went back and forth as tapings progressed - the first car offered was a $21,000 Mini Cooper, while the last was a $25,000 Nissan Altima Hybrid. (The aforementioned Prius was $23,000.)

Most of the cars seem to have been in the $2X,000 range, as was the safari package that sometimes replaced the car. The only exceptions I'm aware of are the BMW 328i ($34,000), the Jaguar X-Type ($35,000), and some sort of Lexus ($37,000).

I double-checked the archive and you're absolutely right. I sit corrected.

I'm pretty sure I saw the male contestant on yesterday's Temptation on Woolery Lingo as well.

Spoiler about the upcoming Buzzr reruns of Temptation:

Buzzr did indeed air the first double-run episode yesterday, so we're going to see that guy win the car in the next few days.

It's also pretty easy for most men to turn down the designer cosmetics and Bag Borrow or Steal Instant Bargains.

Last night's Match Game PM (3/20) featured the old set and Richard Dawson. First time Buzzr has aired the PM show with the old set. In addition to the three regulars, the panel included Dick Martin, Polly Holliday and Fannie Flagg.

It was the Brian Billick episode. They aired that in their Super Bowl marathon. Tonight will be back to 1979.

Couple of notes--new to BUZZR SP episodes start next week (picking up with the 6/27/85 ep of Lauri Hendler/Marty Cohen).

Also, new to BUZZR P+ eps start 4/8 in the 8PM (rerun at 11PM ET) slot (picking up with the 7/26/79 ep--Linda Kaye Henning/Dick Martin) plus CS at 9:30PM (rerun at 12:30AM) on 4/8 we go to January 1980.
