Rare game show back in reruns....

Let's Go Back, the early 90s game show on Nostalgia Television hosted by GS producer Scott Sternberg, is back in reruns on Goodlife TV Thursdays at 3:30(Steve B. doesn't report whether it's PM or AM, but I'll assume PM EST).

Never heard of the Show, but I can confirm that after 3 AM eastern, Goodlife goes to paid programming.so it is probably 3:30 PM..Off Topic,  If you like relatively rare Warner Brothers Westerns and Private Eye shows, Goodlife is a neat channel..I always thought it would be a good channel to air some of the Goodson-Todman shows at some point, not that it would ever happen..

 Maybe Goodlife could get a hold of one or more of the shows people here say they want GSN to get but probably won't.

Like Second Honeymoon, perhaps?

I ran across Let's Go Back a few weeks ago while channel surfing.  It's bad, REAL bad.  The prizes I saw on one show were $500 to the winner, a \"pin the tail on the donkey\" game from the 50s, and an Elmer Fudd drinking glass.  (I know this is GoodLife TV we're talking about but thrift store merchandise?  C'MON!)  The final round is a blatant ripoff of Split Second's Countdown Round, even using 4, 5, and 6 as the number of right answers needed to win the game (from the Monty Hall-hosted shows 17 years ago).  Sternberg is an abysmal host.  There couldn't have been more than a few dozen people in the audience.  The only redeeming quality is Charlie O'Donnell announcing but even that can't save a show.

While going through the digital cable guide right now, Let's Go Back is on today (Thursday) at 3:30 PM, Friday at 8:30 PM, and late Saturday night at 1:30 AM, and presumably other times throughout the week.

I doubt it -- I'd bet the only reason Goodlife has game show reruns from Nostalgia TV is that Goodlife *is* Nostalgia TV, just with a new name.  They didn't have to acquire \"Let's Go Back\" because they already owned it.

I'd be *very* surprised (but pleasantly so) if Goodlife were to get rights to other game shows.

 I thought Nostalgia turned into Goodlife. If Goodlife won't likely look into getting more game shows to air, maybe Trio(who got a hold of the quasi-game show Battle of the Network Stars and that Idiot Savants episode) would. Not likely, but a nice thought nonetheless.

 If you think he's a bad host, look at his absymal productions. (Wheel 2000, Extreme Gong...)
