B&W Overnight Down to ONE Night a Week...

* Monthly specials beginning this October which focus on classic game show icons. Upcoming topics include Match Game, a biography of Chuck Barris, and a countdown of the Greatest Game Show Hosts of All Time.

Hell, I could be misinterpreting that - wouldn't be the first time I was wrong OR right - but I interpret that to mean a countdown ala the 50 Greatest Game Shows thing.

Oof, mea maxima culpa.
*I* was the one who misread your post; my brain somehow eliminated the word "hosts" as I read it.

I'm going to make an early prediction that Chuck Woolery will be #1.  He's pretty much been GSN's unofficial mascot ever since Lingo premiered.

That is a good guess. They might have Peter Tomarken there, considering he hosted "Decades" for GSN and worked with them for a number of years, or the fact he hosted the cult classic PYL. Bob Barker might seem the obvious. Chuck Woolery is one canidate because of the reasons you mentioned.

So my canidates are
Peter Tomarken
Bob Barker
Chuck Woolery

And for those of you that still have your doubts, this release also confirms that GSN will air an ABC Password episode.

There will be a second Password aired during that hour, presumably from CBS.  Anyone have any idea which one?

If that's your criteria, I suppose we should expect to see Marianne Curan too, huh?

Much better reasoning.

I'm not a big fan of his...but I would be dissapointed if Bill Cullen doesn't make the list.

If Cullen doesn't make Top 3, then we can start the coup.
This signature is currently under construction.

Yeah, I would say it'd get pretty ugly, equal to what could happen if TPiR isn't #1 on this 50 "Greatest" Game Shows countdown.

I would like to see a series of "X Greatest Moments From..." akin to the "5 Reasons You Can't Blame So-and-So" series, or anything currently on VH-1 right now. That might be fun. "10 Greatest Moments from Feud," and so on. I don't know who would give the color commentary, or how it would be put together, but I think people would watch.

I dunno. Do we really need to see "Turkey" and "September" again?

I would like to see half-hour shows based on old parlor games, board games or trivia contests but with new twists.  These twists could include having modestly famous people as teammates and could involve some nominal sum of money or a prize (such as a car or trip) for the winning players or teams.

I guess they could run it by the focus groups, but the idea is a little too outside the box.
Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.

Well...that's it.

The last episode of BtC was aired last night...and it looks like it won't be back anytime soon.

And WML?'s hiatus is now underway. The next episode is Sunday Night 10/1(Monday Morning 10/2) at 3am ET.

But...Get the Message and What's Going On? are the rare B&W series being shown Sunday Night 8/27(Monday Morning 8/28) at 3am ET. I'm looking forward to the rare series...the ABC PW episode...and of course WML?'s return to the schedule in the times ahead for B&W Overnight...even though it is down to just weekly.
