I don\'t think GSN is pulling an [adult swim] and providing the listings provider with false information with the intention of airing something else on 4/1. If anything this would be a mistake but, like Seth said, this would be an odd one to make.

My EPG (Comcast) has Sale listed for both 4/1 and 4/2.

Wonder if this means there\'s the slim chance they could pick up Scrabble down the road \'somewhere\'.


 


Awesome news if it turns out to be true, nonetheless (and no matter which episodes they picked up)

No joke, they just ran a promo for it at the end of PYL

Did they show any clips that might hint what era they\'re showing?

Here is some crude video camera recording the tv footage of the promo that was run.

It\'s definitely Jim Perry - we\'ll have to wait and see if it\'s daytime or nighttime.

That Olds in the promo looks like the front wheel drive Cutlass Supreme (which came out in \'88)...might be the WBMG era (last season).

I\'ll be quite annoyed if they air the \"Terrance and Philip\" special.

Interesting pickup, but nice to see...introduces a younger audience to a great show. Part of me wonders whether they feel Temptation is worth reviving, and want to use the original to test the waters...but Fremantle doesn\'t need to screw that show up a second time. I once predicted GSN would get this show, so it\'s good to see I was proven right.

Here\'s a copy straight from the HD Feed. The promo stretched the footage. Whether or not the actual show will be stretched in HD is yet to be seen, but damn does that quality look good.

This is extraordinary. Thanks to those of you who posted the commercial; I was about ready to post a \"proof or not real\" comment. Wish we could give reps on this board.


 


I bet it\'s very much of a test-the-waters sort of venture. The Reg Grundy library might be available on the cheap for daytime filler programming. Interesting that they thought it important enough to make a promo for it...anytime any of the G/T shows were added or pulled from the schedule, rarely would you see a promo for it.


 


The holy grail would be \"Scrabble\" for me. Maybe that\'s not too far off.

Didn\'t all of the WBMG era sets have a turntable with chasing lights on which the car sat? The car in the promo did not.

 


Regardless, cue the nerdy dancing.


 


Edit: You can see the chasing lights during Jim\'s entrance at the start of the promo. It might be WBMG era.

I was shooting the HD channel when I posted my video, of which I have since deleted because your video is much more prettier to watch. :-)

I can\'t believe it\'s been 17 1/2 years since $ale has been rerun. I wonder what took so long: was Fremantle asking too high of a price all this time, or was GSN simply not interested until now?
