Very nice...now for all the folks who's had GSN longer than I have (since 2002), I know they've aired a few episodes from the 1994-95 run in the past, but has the premiere ever been aired on there?

Yes...there's at least one copy of it on Youtube that originally came from GSN.

October '97. The '94 version was on the schedule in Fall 1997/Spring 1998, during the time frame when GSN lost the rights to the entirety of the Goodson library save TPiR and the aforementioned Feud eps, both of which were separately licensed.

That alone I've got to see!

Cordially,

I will be watching and taping this. Looks like a very nice tribute to Mr. Dawson.

Meant to say this earlier. Johnny Gilbert announcing the Feud sounded really weird. He literally sounded angry in the intro.

Was this Gilbert's only time doing a G-T show?

As opposed to figuratively angry. :-P

I listened to it...I sensed a little more excitement than Ghene's more low-key delivery. He also read a little faster.
"I’m not gonna miss a Biggie question, Sara.”

Now celebrating his 19th season on GSF!

To my immediate knowledge, he did Cullen Price after it moved to ABC.
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.

Add to that a brief time during the late 1980s on Card Sharks.

I think he did some Child's Play episodes as well.
