Title: ABC Sunday Fun & Games starts 5/31
Post by: BillCullen1 on May 30, 2020, 12:47:53 PM
Shows are Celeb Family Feud, Press Your Luck & Match Game. I think this lineup is better than the Thursday night one. Starts at 8 pm ET.

Agreed but only because they  got Holey Moley sandwiched between the two great ones.  BTW If you have not watched it Thursday's To Tell The Truth was a lot of fun.

Unfortunately, it may be preempted in some areas tonight for continuing protest coverage, meaning we'll have to watch on demand tomorrow.

 Right now, WCPO is preempting PYL for coverage of the protests.

Entire lineup pre-empted by riot and protest coverage in Seattle/Bellevue.

From what I could see (I didn't get home until after 9 but recorded PYL), WPVI in Philly pre-empted the first minute or so of PYL.

In NYC, ABC aired all three shows with no interruption.

Not that it really matters in perspective, but Tampa aired Feud & PYL in full but Match Game was pre-empted by coverage.

Orlando's WFTV aired all three shows in full.

But sister stations WSB (Atlanta) and WSOC (Charlotte) didn't.

Yeah- any ratings watchers should just forget about the numbers this week (I know WMAR in Baltimore aired at least FF and PYL in full).

Early numbers at this point are promising, but these are the time-slot ratings, not the shows considering the numerous pre-emptions around the country.

Apparently WABC got all shows.  I wasn't home for them though...I hear I missed a doozy of a PYL.  And some old friends from the 80s are back in the presentation...and not just the Whammy remakes.

I thought they over milked it a bit, but the female contestant (whose name escapes me) pulled it out on the last spin after losing $180K, then goes on to nearly surpass the $500,000 threshold, coming about $60,000 short. Also, the win cue made a HUGE difference.

The (infamous) Flokati Rug is back as well...

Based on the episode title "I'm not crying, you're crying" I thought that she would re-win the accessible van, and/or break the $500,000 mark to win the million. Of course, she won enough to BUY one now.

She should sell the freaking Tesla- she can buy the van and get a nice car for herself..

Celebrity Feud, despite the numerous preemptions, cracked the Top 10 this past week with 4.63 million viewers.

Just an FYI- no new eps this Sunday due to special programming (7pm is a CFF rerun, 8pm is a John Legend Fatherís Day special, 9pm is an ABC News special w/ a John Bolton interview, 10pm is a MG rerun)
