A cleaner set of WorldVision logos, most of which have the disclaimer:

From Split Second:

"The car that started today was selected entirely at random just prior to the beginning of today's program."
"Game shows aren't about cruelty. They're about greed and wonderful prizes like poorly built catamarans." - Homer Simpson

Heard on recent Buzzr ep of Classic Concentration:

"Because neither contestant could correctly solve the puzzle in the second round, the rebus was replaced and the program edited."

It seemed like NBC shows in general of that era had announced disclaimers about edits in the shows that others didnít seem to.  Password Plus and Super Password were known to have Gene Wood announce things about puzzles not being solved or technical problems causing the program to be edited.

Now that you mention it, I vaguely remember Charlie Tuna doing the same on Scrabble...then there was Jay Stewart on $ale of the Century. Although, I could've sworn he also had a spiel about airfare for whatever trip offered was based on how much it would cost to fly out of Los Angeles.

MRS. HOLMAN (flustered): Si, si, uh, oui, oui!
BILL: Oui, oui. The dogs do also.

And it wasn't just the serious game shows that had that, either- I've seen a couple of Gong Show episodes where Johnny Jacobs announces over the end credits that acts who had competed and been judged but were not the winners had been deleted from the program.

On one of the MGHS episodes that aired recently on Buzzr:
"Because an answer was heard from the audience, a question was discarded and the program edited."

And displayed in the closing credits:
"Portions Of The Stars' Deliberations in The Match Game Were Edited"
(That happens all the time now, yes??)

The relatively simple forerunner of that, from Match Game '7x, as spoken by Johnny O.:

"This program was edited for broadcast."

How is that possible? Doesn't Alex usually break down the puzzle if neither solves it?

They said "This is horrible TV. Let's just toss the puzzle and try again."

The contestants, remembering the release they signed states clearly that the producers have the discretion to do damn near anything they want, said "Okay."

If it devolves into 'buzz in and win the cookie', it's bad TV.  Although we did have 'How Much is Enough'.

About three minutes, IIRC.

Genuine question: What happens if, while Alex is breaking down the puzzle, a contestant buzzes in and gives an incorrect answer? I assume their opponent would get a guess, but do they have the option to let Alex continue explaining the rebus until he tells them, "Just say The Treasure of the Sierra Madre!"?

It's a fair question, to which I genuinely would love to know the answer to.  I would hope if it ever got that far, they'd do what they apparently did and yanked the puzzle.
