New Buzzr Stuff Coming
« on: September 19, 2017, 06:01:00 AM »
I just saw a commercial promoting Buzzr's new fall schedule. It looks like there will be new episodes of "Now You See It", Combs "Feud", "Match Game '75", "$ale of the Century", "Tattletales" and the addition of Bill Rafferty "Card Sharks". It also looks like they went far enough with "Trivia Trap" episodes to go into the second format. As a side note, a post on Buzzr's Facebook page talks about "Dream Maker" only being around for a limited time.

hope you enjoyed "Wordplay" while it lasted.  Episode one of MG73 is running now, in it's place. 

OH!  I've got a word for that, what's the definition of (this word did not meet the approval of NBC's standards and practices) ?

Seriously? That's absurd, asinine, and ludicrous! Did a test pattern beat it in the ratings?

I don't think ratings really matter on a digital subnet.

My guesses are either that someone screwed up tonight and loaded the wrong show, or that, after showing episode 1 last week, they meant to show it again this past Monday, but showed episode 2 instead, and filled the slot with something else tonight to bring the series back to airing each week from Monday to Friday.

Or maybe they really did pull it after 3 shows. Guess we'll know for certain come Thursday.

That wouldn't work anyway because the first week of shows was only four episodes due to a New Year's Day preemption.

That's what I was thinking.  The digital guide said Wordplay, but they did indeed air episode 1 of MG '73.

They did, however, advertise Match Game as coming up next during Super Password, so Iím thinking it was no mistake.

Buzzr has posted a message to their Facebook page apologizing for the sudden schedule change, stating that "unforeseen circumstances" forced the change. Match Game will be in that slot for at least the rest of this week, and next week.

Their online schedule for the next two weeks has also been updated to show MG73 instead of Wordplay. Wonder if some sort of rights issue came up?

Either that, or the amount of episodes they initially digitized to play (and rerun to death before adding more episodes) were deleted from their hard drives accidentally.  My first thought was maybe they didn't get all the clearance issues from all parties who
had their hand in producing the show (Fiedler-Berlin, Rick Ambrose,...). 

Just a couple of theories...

Could celebrity clearances have been an issue also? After all, these episodes have never been rerun anywhere before.

Buzzr said that this is going to be the schedule for the next week and a half; on their FB page they cite "unforeseen circumstances" as the reason for the abrupt change.

Schedule for week of October 2nd is on Buzzr's site now. Wordplay is still replaced with Match Game 73. Also, the 8PM run of Super Password will be swapped out with Password Plus on that date.

And Password Plus looks to be a new batch of episodes, picking up from where they left off last time.
