So. Let the speculation begin as to what will happen with the weekend Blockbusters airings...as well as the 2:30pm CS airing! Hopefully we don't lose all traces of Rafferty yet.

You can relax, pal. Rafferty is still with us at 2:30pm, for now.

Cordially,

Yes... and I want to thank my DVR for crapping out this morning and not recording this for me.

Gotta love technology.

It's probablily for the best.  There are after all more Cullen episodes than Rafferty's.

First of all, learn to spell. Second of all, you get the Captain Obvious of the Day award.

Obviously the point is that since his CS episodes have resurfaced, there's sort of been a newfound respect for Rafferty that (at least as far as I can see) never really existed before.

Honestly, one of the reasons I'd like to get GSN is just to see those CS episodes. I only remember seeing one of them (it was the premiere, I believe, and I think I got into something else at 4:30), and can't remember what happened.

Your darn right there is more respect for Rafferty now. His 'Card Sharks' is the one I like and 'Blockbusters' is another great showcase for him.

Is acquiring the rights to Every Second Counts within the realm of realistic possibility?

From whom did GSN get "Amazing Race"?  If it was CBS, making a phone call to get ESC as well is not outside the realm of possibility, since original distributor Group W is now part of the Viacom family.  GSN has a lot of lesser-known games in their inventory they don't show, so it might not be a priority.

King World syndicates "Amazing Race" and technically owns "Every Second Counts," thanks to all of the mergers.  Whether GSN would want to pay for having 130 tapes schlepped out of the Group W vault in Pittsburgh and sent to Jurassic Park at TV City for conversion is another story.

This (Saturday) morning's Blockbusters airing was still Cullen, so it looks like Rafferty's Blockbusters will be gone for an extended period of time.  I suppose the show needs a rest, but I hope it doesn't take another eight years for it to air again.
