Perhaps an exception to the recent rules, the 3pm ET airing of WML on 10/12 featured an uncut opening...First guest was related to one of the first domestic VCRs and the "secret" was they just recorded the intro from that VCR and played it back. 

When I saw the opening, I thought for a brief moment "Wow! They're showing the full intro. Buzzr's had a change of heart." But no, the intro was shown because that's what was on the video cassette of the first guest. Oh well, at least we saw it for one show.

Having been to tapings of WML at NBC, I know there were three commercial breaks, one after each guest, or "spot." With Who's Who, they announced what prize those people won (also being cut) and went straight into the MG. During Blyden's run, WML taped mostly in Studio 8H, now home to Saturday Night Live.

Sure enough, we're back to the chopped opening of WML. Soupy Sales is good at guessing the MGs. Today he got Henry Gibson in less than a minute. Friday, he got Jack E. Leonard in about 10 seconds.

TTTT started a new week today (10/15) with guest panelist Orson Bean, who was a regular during the first season of this version. He's wearing glasses, which I never saw him do before, as far as I can remember.

Orson Bean with glasses isn't as out there as Orson Bean with long hair, as was seen two hours earlier on MG '76.

The new  WML panel consists of Allen Ludden, Gail Sheldon, Soupy and Arlene, with Johnny O announcing. Gail was on Beat the Clock.

This week's guest panelist on TTTT is Joe Garagiola, who would go on to be the host. The new WML panel which started on Wednesday has Anita Gillette and Jack Cassidy joining Soupy and Arlene.

EDIT - Thursday's guest panelist on TTTT was James Narz, aka Tom Kennedy. IIRC, this was the one time he vas on. Garry introduced him as the host of Split Second. There's a blast from the past.

Today's ep of TTTT featured popcorn guru Orville Redenbacher. Everyone raved about his popcorn, including guest panelist Joe G and Garry. All four panelists voted for 1. Orville was number 3.

Today's ep (10/9) was the stroganoff food show where Garry jokingly tells the panel they're eating dog food. The look on Kitty's face was priceless. She said it tasted good but it was a bad idea. Gene Rayburn was the guest panelist sitting in the chair closest to Garry.

We're back to reruns of TTTT and WML as of 11/12. So we got six weeks worth of shows for each one. They'll probably air these continuously like with the B&W shows.
