The new GSN Feast of Favorites promo shows clips from Lingo, Whammy, and one or two other originals, plus Feud and $20K PYRAMID!!. Whether that means $20K Pyramid will be shown on Thanksgiving is unknown at this time.

We'll that promo sounds a little more exciting than the other one.  Maybe we will see some 20k Pyramid.  Who knows?  I guess we'll see soon enough though.

I feel like the Brain when it appears that one of his plans to take over the world is going to work.  I have a feeling it won't work out any better for me, though.  GSN has at least some history of using shows in a promo that aren't part of the actual event.

They showed Bullseye, BTC, and J! last year. None of them showed up on the countdown.

I read somewhere that the $10,000 Pyramid has only one episode still in existance. I could be wrong about that.

GSN has shown Twelve $10,000 Pyramid's alone, the other 3 shows (1 from Duncan/Asner, two from Feldon/Schuck) *should* at least be there, so that's 15, plus one ep from elsewhere in 1973 that exists on the trade circuit.

That's a minimum of 16 eps that exist, at the very least.

Well, If my memory isn't failing me, I remember in last years feast post voting promo, there was a clip of Bullseye inserted, yet it didn't make the top 12.

...but I'm willing to bet Bullseye made it THIS year.

Heheheh.

Something I've always wondered about:  for the episodes which exist on the trade curcuit, a lot of them came from studio masters.  Surely GSN must have them as well (for the shows they have rights to) -- it would seem strange to me if the studio master existed ONLY in the trade curcuit.

I'm still holding out hope for "Break the Bank"!

 But it would probably be Rayburn's version if they have the rights to it.
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

 Your logic eludes me, unless this is just another cheap joke at GSN's expense.  We know which version of Break the Bank GSN has.
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.

How do you gather that, being that Barry's BTB has been shown before?

 It was a joke. (albeit bad)

Like GSN giving viewers what they want.

As if you have documented scientifically-researched proof that television viewers outside of the 300 of us that subscribe here are demanding to see Barry & Enright shows of the late 70s and 80s again.

I sometimes see one of us being in Rich Cronin or Bob Boden's position and doing a sales pitch to ad agency media buyers--and using as our big draw to get them to throw some money GSN's way "and we're going to start airing 'Bullseye' and 'Play the Percentages' every night in prime time!  Those were cool shows!  And then we're going to air 'Chain Reaction' and 'Pass the Buck!'"  The derisive laughter among the media buyers would be deafening.
