The announcement means it should be back for at least one more season. But they seriously need to make changes to it.....or else.

For the last time, it's renewed until at least the end of the 06-07 season.

Mark Goodson must have realized that it was either syndication or no shows on the air. There weren't any G-T shows on any of the networks between Sept of 69 and April of 71.
What was Goodson's first syndicated show (reruns included) and when did it go into syndication? Reruns of Password? I'm thinking it might predate September '69?

"Password" started reruns on WPIX in NYC on 9/23/67, one week after its last airing on CBS.

Maybe it was the cancellation of all the primetime panels that prompted the change of heart re: syndication.

WML started its first run strip in Sept of 1968.
Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.

In fairness, there really weren't many games in syndication until Truth or Consequences in 1966.  When the prime time panel shows were cancelled, they were naturals to go to syndication like T or C -- known properties, and relatively low budget.

And luckily for Goodson, NBC had converted its facilities to color and CBS had converted studio 50 (Sullivan theatre) to color, and local independent stations were hugry for color programming at the time.

I was at a party attended by many G-T folks in 1990 and several of them were telling me what an expensive show TTTT was to do. I asked what the big expense was in doing it and was told they had to pay four panelists and there were a lot of travel expenses. I still don't buy the notion that TTTT is particularly expensive to produce.

I believe the Gil Fates line was that you couldn't have a floor of paneled offices on Park Avenue with a private dining room and bathroom attendants off of the revenue from two daytime strips ("Snap Judgment" and "MG").

Or PDQ in 1965.  Stump the Stars was also packaged in 1964, but I would assume that's just gravy off the local version.
