Merv Griffin's Crosswords
« on: September 03, 2012, 08:25:38 PM »
I was looking on tvguide.com and noticed that in the Roanoke-Lynchburg Market that their ABC affiliate WSET still airs Merv Griffin's Crosswords on their 13.2 channel.  Does MG Crosswords still air in other parts of the country?

I thought this show was cancelled along time ago.

Reruns on RTN. I noticed it a couple of weeks ago and wondered the same thing.

Yeah, Retro (RTV) and My Family TV (both Luken nets) carry it. They had carried some other Program Partners material and I wouldn't be surprised if they got Crosswords for a song. Or even a few notes. A guest resident in our home loves it, so I'm back to catching it on occasion - in fact, between the two nets, which we get over the air, I think it's on three times a day....yes, noon and 6 pm on MyFam, 9-10 am on RTV. I've mellowed a bit over Ty's hosting, as he actually winds up doing an adequate job for what he's given, as far as a game goes. It's better that he doesn't have extra time to get more in-depth with contestants.

Yep. WHTM-DT2 (subchannel of ABC27), our local RTN affiliate, carries them at 9am and 9:30 weekdays. As do most of the RTN stations, AFAIK.

ObRTN: Watched an episode of "The Bill Cosby Show" on RTN the other night. Not bad.
