Title: $ale of the Century on GSN around 2015
Post by: Card Shark on February 08, 2021, 04:53:24 PM
For those who remember this kind of thing, what era of $ale did GSN in the evenings in early 2015? And was it the syndicated version? Thanks in advance.

It was indeed the syndicated version. They stopped airing it in March 2015; the final episode they showed was 2/17/86.

Thank you. This is extremely helpful. So, I'm looking for an episode that they aired in February of 2015. Do you or anyone else happen to know if it was from season 1 or 2? I know you said that the last episode they aired in March of that year was from season 2, but they did skip around. Any additional information you can give would be appreciated. Why am I looking for this particular episode? I remember Jim asking a question about what I'm teaching my middle school students now and every time a question about that appears on any game show, whether it's this, Weakest Link, Jeopardy, etc., I like to show them how it COULD pay off for them.

You do that too?  I don't incorporate videos, just a nod to Jeopardy or other shows that had math questions.

Yes, isn't teaching wonderful these days? I am trying to find an episode that aired in mid to late Feb of 2015 on GSN where there was a question about "Lion City". So, I intend to comb through the entire second season until I find it. Game shows can be educational.

To help you narrow it down, GSN aired season 2 all throughout February 2015.

Episode S-157 from Dec. 3, 1985 was aired on 2/2/15.

They continued through the month without any skipped episodes. S-176, from Jan. 20, 1986 aired on 2/27/15.

If you're looking for episodes by airdate, SOTC took a three-week hiatus in that season, so the airdates jump from 12/13/85 to 1/6/86.

If you need any more info let me know. :)
