Variety had a front page story about the low ratings of all the NBC games when the cancellations were announced.  By that time KNBC had relegated Scrabble, Wheel and Concentration to the overnight hours.
Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.

Tonight's Sale of the Century is the Mary Ann/David/Whitney episode of Varsity Week which had previously been making the rounds from a USA Network airing. Nice to see it in context alongside (most of) the rest of the week. :)

Something happened on tonight's Sale episode that I don't recall ever seeing before...

... a player winning the WBMG after passing on a puzzle.

Also notable for Monday's show is Instant Cash is at $14,000.  (2nd highest, next to the penultimate show?)  The current champ has had the lead at IC on all 5 shows, and passed up IC all 5 times.

Unless I'm much mistaken, it will match said penultimate show's level when it's won.

That was just the rarely seen episode where the contestant matched the $ꟻ80 response. I was in the studio audience when he did it.

My bowling buddy said he got the $Ↄ40 response twice.

Our timeline mystery gets a little more clearer: Today's game is Robin McCarrahan's first day, so the $16,000 win will be on Wednesday.
You might very well think that, of course I couldn't possibly comment…

Re $ale: this should be somewhere between all of the special weeks and that car loss.

Which car loss are we talking?  Darrell's on the third-to-last show?  :)
Probably Robin McKirahan, which I believe was August 1988.

Which we can now confirm was 8/3/88 and will be airing one week from tomorrow.

While simultaneously adding something unclear: one of the challengers on tonight's episode, John Newberg (sp?), was back due to an error during his original second game (which was presumably earlier in the WBMG era, since Jim notes that winning today would let him play it for $6,000).

John's prior total isn't mentioned (nor particularly specified aside from a trip to San Diego), but subtracting what he wins here from his grand total of $25,200 leaves him with prior winnings of $21,483 (including $16,000 cash, indicating he claimed Instant Cash at least once and possibly the WBMG as well).

Bit of a bump, but I think it's notable - tonight's Sale of the Century, #1434 (Josh/Kathy/Kelton, aired 8/16/88), is the first episode without the six-number Winner's Board, though the change wasn't mentioned on-air.

Interesting, I haven't been watching so I had no idea it lasted as long as it did.
