BUZZR will be paying tribute to Monty Hall with an all day marathon tomorrow beginning at 8 AM EST.  The schedule online hasn't been changed so no word on what exactly they'll air.  Unless they've got clearance to air other shows, my guess is they'll be showing Let's Make A Deal, Beat The Clock, Tattletales, & Password Plus.

BUZZR Remembers the Life of Game Show Icon Monty Hall in Special Tribute on Tuesday, October 3rd

MONTY HALL TO BE REMEMBERED IN ALL DAY PROGRAMMING MARATHON OF LETíS MAKE A DEAL AND THE ALL-NEW BEAT THE CLOCK

With the passing of game show icon and avid philanthropist Monty Hall this weekend, BUZZR has put together a special tribute to honor the legendary host.  Beginning at 8:00 AM ET/5:00 AM PT on Tuesday, October 3rd, BUZZR will air a special marathon of retro Letís Make A Deal and The All-New Beat the Clock episodes, hosted by Monty. 
 
Monty was the co-creator of Letís Make A deal, teaming with writer and producer Stefan Hatos.  The duo premiered the series in 1963 with Monty serving as the host.  Throughout the show, a number of deals were offered to contestants, who then attempted to trade items and/or ďmake a dealĒ for prizes with the possibility of winning something more valuable, all while running the risk of being awarded a worthless piece of junk called a "Zonk."  With Monty at the helm, eventually the show became known for the crazy costumes worn by audience members in order to increase their chances of being chosen as a contestant.
 
BUZZR premiered on June 1, 2015.  In celebration of the network launch, BUZZR kicked off by airing the original 1963 pilot episode of Letís Make A Deal.  This was the first time since the initial broadcast that the pilot aired in primetime.  To supplement this historical broadcast, BUZZR aired exclusive clips from a sit down interview with the original Letís Make A Deal host, Monty Hall, and current host, Wayne Brady.  The two hosts took an intimate look back at the show and discussed on set bloopers and their craziest contestants:

Along with Letís Make A Deal, BUZZRís tribute to Monty Hall will also include the airing of episodes of The All-New Beat the Clock, which Monty hosted beginning in 1979.  The show was a revival of the original Beat the Clock series in which pairs of contestants were required to perform wild and crazy tasks as they raced against the clock.  Rather than requiring brain and muscle power, the tasks often required physical dexterity and a lack of inhabitation, combined with a bit of luck. Contestants who were able to beat the clock went home with fabulous cash and prizes.
 
In addition to his hosting duties, Monty was an avid philanthropist who is estimated to have raised more than $1 billion for various charities throughout his lifetime.  BUZZRís commemorative broadcast will also include information on how to carry on Montyís legacy of giving by donating to UNICEF, a charity chosen by his family:  https://www.unicef.org/.
 
BUZZRís special tribute to Monty Hall will begin airing tomorrow, Tuesday, October 3rd beginning at 8:00 a.m. ET and will conclude on Wednesday, October 4th at 2:00 a.m. ET.  Included in the tribute will be a special airing of the original 1963 pilot of Letís Make A Deal at 8:00 p.m. ET, and again at 11:00 p.m. ET.

Hope some of these find their way to Youtube, since I only have buzzr in my summer home...

Apropos of nothing related directly to the tribute...

Someone needed to proofread this before sending it out.  My high school English teacher would mark this with (ww) for wrong word, unless a lack of a habitat was truly a skill needed for Beat the Clock.

Social media runs so quickly, it seems spell check is considered an acceptable substitute for actual proofreading.

Of course, I've made plenty of posts with typos myself. And I didn't catch this error (probably because I didn't read the original post for anything other than what shows Buzzr was airing, but still...).

GSN is also having a Let's Make a Deal marathon on Sunday from 9AM to 3PM. Supposedly it will include the very first aired episode, but I wonder if someone is confusing the pilot for that.

Right now, it looks like there might not be a pilot as all slots are set for half hours right now, and the pilot is nearly 40 minutes unedited. My guide has four original airdates listed for the marathon:
9:00 AM: Sep. 18, 1971
9:30 AM: Oct. 9, 1971
10:30 AM: Mar. 18, 1972
11:00 AM: Jul. 15, 1972

All other slots are generic right now. GSN's website has some, but not all, of the Big Deal of the Day values in their schedule.

Due to Positive Viewer Response, BUZZR Will Once Again Remember the Life of Game Show Icon Monty Hall in Additional Special Tribute on Saturday, October 7th 

MONTY HALL TO BE REMEMBERED IN ALL DAY PROGRAMMING MARATHON OF LETíS MAKE A DEAL AND THE ALL-NEW BEAT THE CLOCK, ALONG WITH RARE TATTLETALES EPISODES FEATURING MONTY AS A CONTESTANT

Due to positive viewer response, BUZZR will continue the networkís special tribute to game show icon and avid philanthropist Monty Hall on Saturday, October 7th.  Following the networkís initial tribute that aired on Monday, October 2nd, BUZZR will air an encore special marathon of retro Letís Make A Deal and The All-New Beat the Clock episodes hosted by Monty, beginning at 11:30 a.m. ET/8:30 a.m. PT.  With the networkís fans continuing to share their love and adoration for Monty, BUZZR will also include in the tribute two rare episodes of Tattletales in which Monty and the love of his life, wife Marilyn Hall, appeared as contestants.
 
Monty was the co-creator of Letís Make A deal, teaming with writer and producer Stefan Hatos.  The duo premiered the series in 1963 with Monty serving as the host.  Throughout the show, a number of deals were offered to contestants, who then attempted to trade items and/or ďmake a dealĒ for prizes with the possibility of winning something more valuable, all while running the risk of being awarded a worthless piece of junk called a "Zonk."  With Monty at the helm, eventually the show became known for the crazy costumes worn by audience members in order to increase their chances of being chosen as a contestant.
