Very good news, and Concentration is 60 years old this year. It also allowed Alex Trebek to show his humorous side, especially on the Halloween week shows where he dressed up in costume.

Good to hear; hoping it actually happens (the Wordplay experience makes me a tiny bit cautious).

Best news.  Selfishly hoping for an evening slot since I have to rely on the BUZZR livestream.
When you're at the grocery game and you hear the beep, think of all the fun you could have at "Crazy Rachel's Checkout Counter!"

Not to sound ungrateful, since it's great news...but is there any chance this could eventually lead to the Narz version being added as well? It's never been re-aired to my knowledge and would be pretty cool to see again.
It was Bob Barker. He was eating a bologna and cheese-ball sandwich.

No such luck.  1PM and 1:30 ET.

Just saw a promo that they're adding 70s To Tell the Truth on that date (the promo showed the last set.) I've also heard they're adding color Password.

Does that strike anyone else as odd? A show that literally hasn't aired anywhere for 25 years, but still looks good enough to be semi-modern, that they have probably gotten many requests to air, and it isn't airing in their primetime lineup?

Over at Game Show News FB page, there is a rumbling that the 60s syndie run of Password may show up as well.  No confirmation yet, but it fits with what era of G-T they're adding to the lineup.

Seriously? WOW! Congrats to them! Makes one wonder how come BUZZR was able to score this gem, but in all the years GSN has been around, they havenít been able to score it?

I wonder what the other ďname brandĒ show would be besides Concentration. I canít think of anything else besides TPIR or Scrabble that Fremantle would have access to. Iím not fully clear on what it would take for Scrabble to air, and Price seems like a long shot outside of maybe the Cullen shows or the first three CBS years.

For the “Buzzerless” (like myself, God bless YouTube)...I’m assuming this is the promo in question.

I know we’re only prognosticating here but if it’s the latter...if BUZZR is able to get over the NBC hurdle with “Classic Concentration” (in the risk of sounding Pollyanna-ish), anything is possible!

Were you able to see that from the advanced schedule?

Nevermind my question.   Just saw the promo for it.
