Cool! Has GSN ever aired any of these episodes before?

All of them, as far as I can tell.

That must explain why Cathy's $31K loss (1984) isn't on here.

They wanted the marathon to be all new-to-Buzzr (it's mentioned specifically in their Facebook post promoting the marathon) and they've already shown that one.

Buzzr also plans to stream the "uncensored" version of the Jim Hess episode online (which I guess means it will be censored on air.)

The discussion I saw was that it was never censored when it aired on CBS or USA.  For the most part, unless you listen very closely, you can't hear much of anything offensive.  The episode is on YouTube.

GSN as well. You can hear the "S"-bomb, but only if you're listening for it. The "F"-bomb is pretty much buried.
