Title: BUZZR 4th Birthday Marathon
Post by: NicholasM79 on May 27, 2019, 04:17:09 PM
Looks like we are getting some more classic episodes of The Price is Right...

A little teaser video here on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/BUZZRtv/videos/1222916101395699/?__xts__%5B0%5D=68.ARC_FBWNK2WPDmmnR9H0OQsUOn6suiegtPszqhvti0PWdhDegVx982YhjHwE6CejlIUjpGvc1vR74lMniaXWu0SL5geFXaDoZdvoaKe48WxbvHxDFdGhlTsbzhX_ZIb8HFaZFJj8ZixUHXEZaJTwxvIi0WrnmNazvsWaUQD923dlhm5XLzOQWtxqziZRJ0cn4OWFyRISB-k8jX0NlksJXsYsHhXE-_qXjOU-44dJKxBV_E9fq_LcdjSouZJvI8OMHW_4SvTV7E5WkxAacYZ_CWR5ZAM6CQq1REx-YhUMb0YtVQ7ZzvoCDSme32QiouU52k0Ie4wuEoAgqzOZ3RlBKDmrSKh6zb_6mpFJHw&__tn__=-R)

I hope they air more than JUST Price that day, though. But if they don't, plenty of other TV to watch.

BILL: Mrs. Holman, everyone knows that French poodles do not understand anything but their native language, French. Do you speak French?

MRS. HOLMAN (flustered): Si, si, uh, oui, oui!

BILL: Oui, oui. The dogs do also.

Brilliant.

At the very beginning I caught a glimpse of what looked like the last season of Collyer TTTT. Given their recent history of hacking shows, I wonder if they'd bother to hack a show that was 25 minutest to start. As is they would end up with extra commercial time given how without commercials those episodes ran about 19 minutes.

I'm hoping they update their schedule soon!  Right now there's nothing special on the 8th.

The 8th has a handful of Press Your Luck and Card Sharks (from 1988) episodes in primetime to tie in with the new shows premiering on ABC.

Maybe they can show the IGAS '72 episode with Paul Lynde. A B&W show with Robert Q. Lewis.

The press kit included some video clips. The ones for this marathon are the Paul Lynde appearance you mentioned and Judy Garland on WML?.

What would they have for Bullock?  Unless they have more than one week of MGHS or any of MG9x converted, BL would be about it, no?

He was also a regular on the seemingly very rare IGAS '00 from Oxygen. Some friends and I were wondering if that's where Lily Tomlin comes in? That episode featuring her is online though. Did she appear on syndie WML or something?

We suspect that while it could be MGHS for Bullock, it's probably BL.

Lily Tomlin was a mystery guest during the Wally Bruner era of WML, so it will probably be that.

Now confirmed, but at least it's one that's new to Buzzr (ep 357, OAD 10/29/85, Bullock and Mindy Cohn).  The other ep is labeled as 214, which has been shown before.

Two B&W WML eps (Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand) and two color ones (the aforementioned 1970 Lily Tomlin ep as well as a 1973 ep with Jim Bailey).  And the Lynde IGAS (as well as CNR's where he paints Janice Pennington's body).

Among others.

So from 4  to 8 pm ET we have Cullen's TPIR on the 23rd. Maybe someday we'll see color episodes of this.

Right week, but wrong ep.  Richard Chamberlain was the MG instead.
