BUZZR "Prime Time Party" beg. February 6th
« on: January 27, 2017, 11:57:50 AM »
Beginning February 6th, a big shake up in BUZZR's prime time line up will take place.  The hour of LMAD and the B & W 2 hour block will be replaced by the "Prime Time Party." The "Prime Time Party" consists of six half hour shows and FINALLY Password Plus will officially join the network.  The shows in the 3 hour block will be The All New Let's Make A Deal, Password Plus, $ale Of The Century, Tattletales, Card Sharks with Bob Eubanks, & Press Your Luck.  The schedule is not out that far yet, so I don't know if it will air in that order.  Also, it is not known what will happen to $ale on Sundays now that it will be airing daily.  Here's the promo that just started airing this week.

Didn't Password + air previously on the 4th of July marathon that Buzzr did in 2015?

Yep.

Really hoping BUZZR takes off this year and finds itself in more markets, mine included.

Intriguing. This means they'd almost have to have new-to-Buzzr episodes of Password Plus and Combs Feud, right? Even at only one episode per day, they haven't run enough of either of those shows during Buzzr's past specials to justify a five-days-a-week schedule otherwise.

(Hoping this also means new-to-Buzzr episodes of Now You See It.)

Not sure where Combs Feud is starting (other than they're 1988 episodes.) Password Plus is starting with the premiere with Elizabeth Montgomery and Robert Foxworth.

You would be correct Scott.  They've only run a total of 5 episodes of Password Plus and about 10 tops of FF with Ray Combs.  NYSI will definitely be new episodes as they have only run two of those.  $ale has run enough that it could get by with reruns for the first 6 weeks, but hoping there will be more to follow after that.  LMAD, Tattletales, Eubanks CS, & PYL has run plenty of episodes that at a 30 minute slot, the episodes they have previously ran will tide them over for months

Also of note: the 4PM/2AM hours of Match Game are New-to-Buzzr episodes of MG75, and SOTC is refreshed starting with the 2/19/85 episode.

Which is good because when we last left Jim and Summer, lot run #2 had just gotten underway.

Me as well. I would love to see more of 'WML?" and 'IGAS" outside of the last two weeks of the year.

Are the '85 Dawson Feuds currently running new to Buzzr also?

They are fairly recent to Buzzr. I think they started running those in the last few months.

Good to see the lineup being juggled a bit, and some new episodes being added to the mix. I was starting to worry they'd just fall back on recycling what they already have, since things seemed to be getting a bit stale, and some of the promises in 2016's promos never came to pass.

Seconded. While GSN is in love with Harvey Feud, Buzzr seems to be in love with Match Game and Dawson Feud. New episodes  are definitely a welcome relief.

Having been in the hospital for much of the last week (leg injury, recovering nicely), I can definitely say I prefer Buzzr to GSN at this point.  The latter pretty much is down to Harvey Feud and a bunch of originals that don't interest me.  I can imagine if Buzzr doesn't have a huge number of episodes available it could get pretty tiring to the hardcore audience (read:  us), but we're not really who they're trying to reach.

Has anyone determined whether the Tattletales episodes are from the 1980s run?  Otherwise, it looks like they're trying to push the '80s nostalgia buttons with the rest of the picks.
