I saw a post somewhere seeking audience members (Buzzerblog maybe?), but no official announcement regarding a premiere or number of episodes.

Sigh.  Guess that makes this game show number 7 that I applied to and didn't get picked.
Due to an error in judgment, a contestant's post was removed and the thread edited.

Question, I know you can only appear on so many shows in a certain length of time (isn't it 1 show in a year, or 3 shows in 10 years? I'm not sure of that exact rule, feel free to correct me if I'm mistaken with my guess), but is there a restriction on how many times you can try out for a given show, assuming you haven't actually gotten on-air on that show yet, and assuming you are not under any other eligibility restrictions (such as having appeared on too many shows to get picked again so soon, for example)?

That varies by show. Jeopardy is once a year, but Millionaire is five times in a year(that's what the PAs told me at the Chicago auditions on Monday)

From what I've read, Jeopardy has a six-month cool-off period.

I was under the impression that it was once every twelve months- at least that's what I gathered from the rulesheet I read every time I sign up for the online test.

Trying out, though, I would figure that as long as you adhere to the rules regarding how often you can try out during one season, you can keep coming back as often as you want to. Especially for Millionaire, as far as I understood- you're going there on your dime (at least to the NYC auditions- do they still do individual city auditions?), so it's no one else's money but your own that you're spending.
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

I don't believe it...Norfolk finally gets a game show audition. I think the last one was when the Wheelmobile came in late-2001.

Unfortunately, I worked for an ABC affiliate up until 3 months ago, so I think I'm still ineligible for another 57 months. :-P

Back to The Pyramid for a moment, GSN has made it official.  This highly anticipated version debuts Monday, September 3 at 6pm.
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.

And with Mike Richards behind the podium. Which is a shame, because it means a bunch of people won't give the show a chance.

It's an interesting choice to be sure, and one I probably wouldn't have thought of (many host choices nowadays are, seeing as there's no longer a big dedicated pool for game show hosts).  But Mosher's report said he did a good job.  Plus I don't have the prejudice certain people have against him, as I still like TPIR and LMAD and don't always see all the fuss those certain people seem to have.

To me, the fact that he hosted five series of "Beauty and the Geek" and didn't make much of an impact doing that says something.
Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.
