Rafferty's Card Sharks returns to Buzzr
« on: October 16, 2018, 02:56:37 PM »
According to a promo on Buzzr, Rafferty's SC will replace Eubanks CS starting October 22 at 4:30 pm ET.

Speaking of Eubanks' CS, there was a mistake during the Money Cards round on the 10/15 show. The lady was on the 2nd level with $600 and an Ace. She said "All of it HIGHER." Nothing is higher than an Ace. Eubanks just went on, the producer didn't say anything. They gave her the $600. Lady ended up with $1,800, they went to a commercial. I'm figuring they have to give an explanation for this. When they came back, Eubanks just brought out the next contestant. No explanation. They might have snipped it out. But I find this unusual since Goodson shows are mostly sticklers for the rules.

Looks like on 11/29 we're back to the Eubanks 1/6/86 premiere. I'm still pretty new to Buzzr, have they aired Rafferty's version in the past and only showed this handful?

Sadly yes, before then, Buzzr will again show the May 7-9, 1986 episodes this coming week. Jamie, I'm sure you have a lot more CBS Card Sharks episodes in your collection than the no. of episodes Buzzr has shown so far.

How different would the totals have been if she had said what she meant?

How exactly could you be a stickler for a mathematically impossible scenario? "Higher than an Ace? Nooooo, it's a 9!" (fail horns) strikes me as bad television.

If it's a King, I get it, but as you mentioned, nothing is higher than an Ace, so just treat it like a slip of the tongue and keep going. I seem to remember there being an occasion where either Jim or Bob said something along the lines of "since you  can't go higher than an Ace/lower than a deuce, how much would you like to bet?", and the emphasis was more on the wagered amount.
