Password Returning in April...
« on: March 19, 2012, 07:59:49 PM »
The 14 day schedule from Zap2it shows that both Password Plus and Super Password are returning to the schedule starting April 2nd. Password Plus will air at 10:00am and Super Password will air at 11:30am. Also, The $25,000 Pyramid will return to its old 10:30am slot as well. The schedule goes up to 7:00pm that day, so the status of both Card Sharks is not known.

Hey, wasn't GSN supposed to get rid of all the classics by March? :P

Educated guess (No pun intended)........ Card Sharks's contract is up.

Educated indeed.  People seem to forget that late-March/early-April appears to be the calendar point for their Fremantle deals.  We're coming up on the third anniversary of the major shakeup when most of the second-tier Goodson-Todman stuff disappeared.  Since then, it seems every year at that time there's been some sort of less-seismic but still noteworthy schedule change with regard to the classics.  This year appears to be no exception.
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.

2:00AM: Jeopardy!
2:30AM: Password Plus
3:00AM: $25,000 Pyramid
3:30AM: Super Password

Vanilla Password isn't anywhere.

Not saying that this isn't happening just yet because I don't know, but, as far as I know, schedules that far have not been sent out.  The furthest-ahead schedule sent out that I have is the week of March 26th.  Zap2It may have gotten something no one else did, but they typically send everyone PDFs of the schedules at the same time and nothing beyond March 26th has been released.

And according to Casey Abell, never trust them.

Well if this is true, I may finally have enough reason to return to GSN regularly. One of my favorite shows once again available for viewing on my television. I'll jump for joy once Alex receives and posts the PDFs.

Here's hoping they move Card Sharks and put "What's My Line?" and "I've Got a Secret" back at the 3am hour.

Me: Of all of the game shows you've hosted besides Jeopardy!, like High Rollers or Classic Concentration, which is your favorite?
Alex Trebek: I'd have to say To Tell The Truth, because it was the first time in my career that I got to sit down while I was hosting.

Actually, all things considered, yeah, I believe it.

He continues to lurk here, and occasionally references something said on our board, either on his blog or on the GSN board, where he continues to post.

I had an argument with him the other day about Harvey Feud being more racy than any of the other versions. He continues to say that Dawson was equal to Harvey in the Racy category, and that Harvey Feud "occasionally" uses dirty answers and questions. I don't know why I waste my time with the guy, but I do.

I still remember the content of my one post there, where I told a certain Geoff Edwards fanatic to get a life. To which I got a response of "why don't you shove it!!!".

Speaking of, whatever happened to said person?
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

Which?  The Geoff Edwards fanatic or the person who told you to shove it?  The Fanatic is still viewing the board, posting status updates to her GSF profile, and I assume she is still writing about her dreams about Geoff elsewhere.
