I'd be happier with a separate central gameboard between Bob and the contestant desk, just to make it a little less cramped.)

Well, here's a compromise.  Photo #4 is, I'm betting, the bonus game setup.  Why not have the player face the podium and use its gameboard?  Sure, you'd need some sort of backdrop for the player, but since there probably isn't an in-studio audience anyway, that wouldn't seem to be an intractible problem.

Yeah, I didn't see that picture until after I posted. I'm wondering if the contestant maybe *is* facing a screen of some sort with that setup. If they are, then the photos are pretty deceiving with regard to set size and it might work better than I think.

Your idea of using the podium as a gameboard is an interesting one, but I wonder if any backdrop wouldn't make the set look even *more* cramped, if indeed what we are seeing is representative of the set size.

The BTC episodes are Monty's- when's the last time (other than the Christmas ep they've shown) it's been on?

I'm guessing they're skipping to the celebrity episodes of Hall BTC...

Since the listing is "All-Star Beat The Clock," I'd say that's probably a pretty safe guess.

I guess that was a premature "wow."

Did GSN advertise "All-Star Beat The Clock" and then not deliver it?

Apparently the folks who read the initial info on Beverly's site took it to literally mean they were skipping the civilian portion of the run entirely, and starting at the Celebrity portion of the run, and it snowballed from there.

At no point was it stated by anyone providing the programming info, aside from Das Perf, that GSN was starting at the All Star episodes.

Effective when, and, if anyone can hazard a guess, which version of TTTT?

Effective today, and if the bumpers give me any indication, it's O'Hurley's. (Am I right?)

I suppose you can still learn stuff on TLC, though it would be more in the Goofus & Gallant sense, that is (don't do what these parents did)"- Travis Eberle, 2012

Also, the Tues-Fri primetime has changed... to Millionaire, TTQ, and a repeat of 4:30-7.

Based on that, I would also venture that the TTTT eps. are O'Hurley.

I saw both afternoon TTTT eps. this afternoon.  Both were O'Hurley eps., with the 4 PM episode being the first aired episode.

Are the 3 airings of Feud all Dawson?
Enjoy lots and lots of backstage TPIR photos and other fun stuff here. And yes, I did park in Syd Vinnedge's parking spot at CBS

Nope. The 3pm airing is Dawson, and then the other 4 airings of Feud are Karn.
