Add two episodes of Pyramid to the tribute with Dick playing the game. This will air Saturday from 1:00pm-2:00pm.
What, they couldn't have bothered airing all three episodes of the Dick Clark Challenge? (I'll facepalm if they omitted the Betty White episode.)

And what Matt O. said -- Cullen $25,000 would've been a welcome sight.

Even if GSN had a 'lapse in judgement' (from their perspective) and opened the wallet would Viacom even have been able to find those two episodes on that short notice? (assuming they even have a clue where the series is stored in the first place)

When they aired the Woolery "Wheel" ep. during Merv's tribute, was that from someone on the trading circuit? Don't know why I'm leaning towards that idea, but it's definitely plausible I suppose.

As for the tribute, there's no need to go through all that trouble when you have eps. available where he played the game. Despite her revival of popularity, a lack of Betty White is not a big deal, because quite frankly the tribute's not about her. There's no reason why they can't dig up the 10/20K shows though. They could honestly do a tribute for a few hours, with a couple of eps. from those and the 25/100K versions.

I'm pretty sure it, and the other two daytime episodes GSN aired, all came from Paley Center. A 2004 Woolery interview (this one, in fact) showed clips of the March 1978 show also held by Paley Center...and it had a GSN logo.

That 1976 show isn't in the Paley Center holdings.  It is, however, in the Library of Congress holdings (meaning that was the episode Griffin Enterprises submitted for copyright purposes), and probably in Sony's vault somewhere.

True, but it was his strongest showing out of the three.

As usual, the average viewer not only doesn't know, they don't care.

My sources: Paley Center, GSCentral.net. This is the only '76 episode which Paley Center doesn't give names for (May 20 uses Elliot/Kathi/Lee, the Dream Machine show uses Richard/Patty/Rick).

As such, I'm pretty sure the June 7, 1976 show wasn't in the trading circuit prior to GSN's airing, but it was somewhere that Brad Francini could see it (his site also has photos of the March 15, 1978 show, which I've never heard of as being in the trading circuit).

The Betty White episode? Betty and Dick did the Pyramid "week" together, no?
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

No, he played against different people. In one case, Coolio...was available.

The GSN schedule indicates they're showing the Betty White and Coolio eps, in that order.

Who participated in the third Dick Clark show? It was pre-empted in Seattle for a "special" Pyramid featuring Seattle newscasters. (Maybe something similar was done in other markets?)

I thought there were two Dick Clark/Betty White episodes, but I guess not.

ETA: Chuck Donnegan's tape listing says Karri Turner, who co-starred in JAG.

Oops... my bad.  Nevertheless, I don't think the Paley Center is where GSN got their tape of the episode. Sony probably already had a copy.
