Something such as Zap2It, TV Guide, Cableword...which, to my knowledge didn't publish this "report".

Okay. I'm far from a defender of the Perfesser.

But, please to be explaining to me the difference between the Perfesser taking a press release faxed to him from GSN and making a story out of it, and one of those sites that you mention doing the same thing. [/quote]
Because I have a problem with the legtimacy of stories posted on Steve's site.  If one of the sites above posted the story, and turned out to be wrong, they would likely issue a retraction--Steve would not.

Basically what I'm saying is that I really don't trust any information posted there (and don't visit his site), but would be likely to trust it if it came from anywhere else but him.

Reasonable. Overly paranoid, especially in a situation like this where it's plain he parroted from a press release and didn't editorialize, but reasonable.

Well zap2it has The Amazing Race listed in the 3am slot on August 21st. Boy now GSN's savior of a show in a slot like that. Now to me that is funny.

Before someone hounds you for it, I'm sure everyone knows that you meant August 21st.
Welp, if it wasn't on the 50 Greatest Countdown, Amazing Race just had to shaft What's My Line somehow. Suckage.

Yep... scanned through Zap2It (thank goodness the old version of the grid is still available) and TAR is at 3am 6 days a week starting then.  Here's the schedule for the new and not-so-improved B&W block for the next few weeks:


8/28 - Get the Message and What's Going On
9/4 - Make the Connection and Play Your Hunch
9/11 - Password and Judge for Yourself

I like that they're playing the rarely seen shows, and I wouldnt have minded if they had started showing those on Sunday nights/Monday mornings, but did they have to take the B&W block off the rest of the week?

I'm a big TAR fan, but I can't watch the hacked-up GSN reruns. I wonder if this isn't an attempt to plow through their contracted number of reruns of each ep so they can let the show go?

(TAR should've been on Fox Reality Channel all along.)

Zap2It is also showing that, starting on Sat. 8/26, two repeats of 'Lingo' and a 'Dog Eat Dog' showing will replace the 10PM-12AM airings of 'TAR' on Saturday nights.  Great, we haven't seen these two shows on GSN since a few hours/days ago!

Thanks for that, Greg. Five of the six shows above are shows that I have never seen before. Looks good. I thought it was only thirty minutes per week, but this makes the situation seem a tiny bit better.

Judge For Yourself? Was there any period in the show's run where it wasn't sponsored by Old Golds?

Didn't stop them from airing Two For The Money. Or is the no-shows-sponsored-by-cigs a recent policy?

I believe the episodes of Two for the Money that GSN aired didn't have the Old Gold logo on the set.

Actually, the last time Two For the Money aired on GSN (which IIRC was around last Thanksgiving), the only ones they were able to air were the handful of episodes--I'm thinking it was only 6 or so--that weren't sponsored by Old Gold... and that included the one surviving episode with Sam Levinson.

Which goes back to my original question, because back in the day when 2FTM was a regular on the GSN schedule, they very much aired the Old Gold episodes.

Yes, I watched TFTM every Sunday back in 99 or 00, and each contestant got a box of Old Gold.  The no-cig policy went into effect last summer or so.
