Title: Buzzr changes, effective 1/11/21
Post by: Bryce L. on December 17, 2020, 11:36:13 PM
Buzzr's been posting the schedules for January 2021, and on Monday, January 11, we get a few changes/refreshes...
Also, there may be something coming up later in January or early in February, considering that there is an hour of infomercials both Saturday and Sunday evenings.

Yay, more Cullen TPIRs that haven't been seen since their original broadcasts!

  • Supermarket Sweep from 1993 replaces Tattletales in the Saturdays at 10pm hour.

That totally bites...that hour-long block of "Tattletales" on Saturday nights has been the highlight of my viewing...

Glad I'm not the only one who feels that way.

  • Sale of the Century reverses its two runs (the syndie run is now at 9am, the 1988 shows are at 7:30pm)
  • Supermarket Sweep reverses its two runs (the 1993 episodes are now at 9:30am, the 2000 season is now at 9pm)
  • Body Language (weekdays at 10am slot) is fresh, starting with episode 258.
  • Perry Card Sharks replaces Eubanks CS in the 4:30pm slot (reducing Eubanks to Saturday evenings only, in the process), with fresh episodes, FINALLY moving into 1979. Fresh episodes start at episode 175.
  • Concentration with Jack Narz is fresh, starting from episode 1124.
  • Cullen TPIR is new, picking up at March 25, 1959.
  • Supermarket Sweep from 1993 replaces Tattletales in the Saturdays at 10pm hour.
  • Sale of the Century (1988) is now in the 5pm hour on Sunday afternoons.
  • Tattletales is now on late Sunday/early Monday at 2am, replacing the hour of Sale that had been there.
Also, there may be something coming up later in January or early in February, considering that there is an hour of infomercials both Saturday and Sunday evenings.

Is there a new link for the sked?  My link is all blank after 12/23.

Got it.  Thought I had changed a date to some time in January but it didn't seem to populate.  This time it did.

Notable that two BL eps are being skipped--260 (Wednesday ep with Jonelle Allen and Richard Moll) and 263 (Monday ep with Jo Anne Worley and Patrick Wayne).

For those wondering why, the former has a bunch of Indian jokes, while the latter has Patrick Wayne acting out the word "midgets".

I know, two different shows, but didn't stop MG/HS episodes with the latter word being muted out. 

(given there's been skips since in the MG/HS schedule, wonder if we are now just not bothering instead of censoring) 

Question: when they got back to the St. Elsewhere week, the one episode they did show was skipped (part of Before They Were Stars).  Did that contain any "cancell-able" material?

Muting is one thing.  Surgery is something else (not only do they have to mute the word [up to several times depending on how long it took to solve the puzzle], but blur it too).  :)

Dumb question, but why not sidestep the problem of "unairable" content by uploading the affected episodes (unedited/unblurred/etc.) to their YouTube channel? They've done it before (the Jim Hess episode of PYL, for one).

Because, I think, they likely donít want to be associated with the content at all ó whether on their YouTube or on the channel. The ďMĒ-word isnít bleeped on network tv by default; they likely arenít trying to appease super strict advertisers; itís likely the content itself, not the method by which they share it, that theyíre trying to avoid having their brand on.

So the Sicilian moment on PW+ turned up to 11.

Honestly, I think this is the best way to go about things. Just add a disclaimer noting it's a product of its' time, like the disclaimer on the WB cartoon sets. That way the people who truly want to see it can see it, while the casual Buzzr-watching public don't have to. Everybody wins.

And exactly how many people ďtruly want to seeĒ one particular episode of  Body Language? Itís not worth the effort.

I'm sure their thought is that with their library of thousands of shows, nobody is going to miss one episode here and there. And while this group proves that "nobody" is an exaggeration, they're not wrong to think that.

Speaking of which, a contestant actually said the word "midget" in yesterday's episode and BUZZR forgot to bleep it.

Starting Monday, 2/22, Narz Concentration moves to weekdays at 9:00am ET, while Classic Concentration takes its slot at 8:00pm/11:00pm ET.

I'm kind of surprised this one didn't happen sooner. I think Trebek CC will have a wider appeal at that time slot.

Iím guessing they didnít want, or may have been contractually prevented from, CC running against new episodes of Alexís better-known show. And given time zone differences, that would have happened in at least a handful of markets, with pretty much any prime time slot they put it in. For obvious reasons, thatís no longer an issue.

I agree that Trebek CC will have wider appeal, though. But I hope Narz Concentration doesnít get too shafted. Thereís a lot of it we still havenít seen. And Iím thinking it must not have done badly, for it to have gotten an upgrade from 7:30 to 8:00 not that long ago.
