[quote name=\'Dan88\' post=\'252377\' date=\'Dec 12 2010, 11:10 AM\']* Vidal Sassoon tried doing a talk show? It does look interesting, I'll give it that.[/quote]GAME SHOW CONNECTION!!! The announcer for Your New Day with Vidal Sassoon was John Harlan.
YND was a good show, I thought. I especially enjoyed the make-over segment where at the end of Friday's show, an audience member was chosen to get all glammed, etc. by Monday through Vidal's expertise. Nothing like Molly's success story on The Brady Bunch, but he did do remarkable work with a few of them.
In my sixth year in the cornfield.

Also if you look at some ads.  I think Merv Griffin tried to syndicate Wheel twice during the Chuck Woolery era.

I'll add the 90-minute Bert Convy talk show (which obviously never went to series) -- produced by B&E.

I'll have to check more of these out.  Nice find.

Maybe, tentative deals were made, but then CBS applied the limit to both network & syndie, causing Viacom to look for alternate means
Your theory makes no sense whatsoever. Why would CBS make a "tentative deal" for a show with the grand prize right there in the title if they planned to enforce their prize cap (which I believe was $20,000 at the time, compared to the other networks' $25,000)?

Oh wow, "Strip Family Feud"!  Hadn't thought of that.  Although ... I have played "Strip Jeopardy!" at a couple of parties.  It can get wild, especially since the best-looking ones aren't necessarily the brightest.

Again, Wiki... and again, I apologize. I probably should have found a more credible source.

The source I have -- Erickson's Syndicated TV book -- noted that CBS pulled out at 64K.  I would guess (if the story is accurate) that the sale was done at the O&O level and only later did someone at the network level mention that this may be problematic.  Before you say it -- I know that the book has errors too.
Portions of this post not affecting the outcome have been edited or recreated.

It won't be long until There will be a game show related article on Broadcasting (December 19, 1988): Dan Enright Back on Top of his TV Game.  David is slowly going into the 80s.  BTW, I saw the pic of Leonard Nimoy and he does resemble John Oates a bit.

Also in the 1980 issues there are ads galore for The Toni Tennile Show produced by None other than Bob Eubanks!
