I'm watching Press Your Luck right now, and episode #594 is playing on my TV. The 9 that have been skipped are December 23-January 3.

You called it, although I suppose on the plus side this means there's no skipping between this Friday and next Monday, plus shows 594-597 get exposure for the first time since the USA repeats. Plus, hey, we still don't know how far this lease goes! :)

That said, the scheduled-then-skipped episodes may end up airing -- this post by one of the admins at Game Show Paradise (who emailed GSN recently, asking if they had any special programming planned for the holidays) indicates that GSN has some classic-related plans for Christmas/New Year's:

Quote
We anticipate having some more exciting news about Christmas and New Year’s programming ready to be announced in the next couple of weeks, and would encourage you to keep an eye out for it. There will be a few additional surprises for fans of our classic programming as well as our more contemporary shows, and it is our hope that you will enjoy it all while you celebrate the holidays.

I am not surprised that the four Christmas-themed episodes were going to be skipped in favor of the first full week of 1986.  I did agree with Vahan's theory, but I had to see it to believe it.  I would not be surprised if Christmas and New Year's weeks of Press Your Luck end up being reserved for the 2014 holiday season, and likely the same for Eubanks' Card Sharks and maybe The $25,000 Pyramid.  But in either event, I really am glad that GSN has finally started to air the 1986 episodes.  I did learn that the early 1986 episodes did air on USA in early 1989 - was that the last time the early 1986 episodes aired on USA, or have they been rebroadcast on USA since?

I do have to admit, it is great to finally get to see the Willie Nelson and Barbershop Quartet Whammy animations in pretty good quality.  And the audio of the Barbershop Quartet Whammy does sound familiar - doesn't it sound similar to the audio file used in Curt King's PYL game?

There was no Christmas-Decorated week of $25,000 Pyramid in 1987. It was a repeat of the one from the year before.

Thanks for clarifying.  I guess I should have resorted to Xanfan's episode guide for reference.

Tim's final episode is the one where it appears Kevin Nealon and the late, great Jan Hooks storm the stage to offer congratulations. Was that ever confirmed?

Tim really squeaked out a couple of wins …

I cannot wait to find out what lies past Tim Holleran's run before the endgame change for my episode guide.

I tried asking two people what was the cash jackpot on the final episode with the shopping endgame, and if the randomizer was put on the Fame Game by that time. One of them refused to help me, acted very rudely to me, telling me to "stop asking me these ridiculous questions" (They are NOT ridiculous questions!). The other, a trader named Andrew Kudey, said that he has it. But then he said that it was currently missing from his collection. He never retrieved it.

Well, all of that changes starting tomorrow.

You certainly have an interesting definition of "acting rudely to" you. Every time somebody doesn't do what you want, it's acting very rudely to you. And then we get to hear about it. (And a clunky way of stringing together the sentence, but that's neither here nor there.)

But then why did one of them call my questions "ridiculous"? They sounded legitimate to me.

It wasn't like I asked him about latex balloons. Now THAT'S a ridiculous question. I can agree with you on that.

Ah, so it's never a ridiculous question when *you* ask it. I get it.
