Buzzerblog is saying it's for ABC- makes sense with all the GS they've been doing over the past few years...

Their casting website (yes, it's legit) has a link that reads "http://facebook.com/pressyourluckABC". So yeah, it's for ABC. Really intrigued in what direction they go with this- stretch 1 game into an hour format, or 2 games?

I'd guess two games in an hour like Pyramid and Celeb Feud...I'd also assume this is for late spring/summer..

Has it been official yet that TTTT, Celebrity Feud and/or Gong will be back for another season?  I know that Pyramid is on the schedule for sure.

The spam filter flagged it, but am glad that it is legit.

The fact the show's coming back is exciting enough (fingers crossed that they don't screw this up), but I find it amusing that the franchise is coming back to the network that launched Second Chance to begin with. :)

So that's six classic game shows airing on ABC...Celebrity Feud, TTTT, Pyramid, Match Game, Gong, now Press Your Luck. I'd love to see a 20th anniversary Millionaire return.

Off the top of my head, I don't think any of the networks have ever had that many prime time shows at the same time. Maybe NBC during the 2008 Writers Strike, when they just threw anything on the air?

Celebrity Family Feud certainly is - http://on-camera-audiences.com/shows/Celebrity_Family_Feud. I swear I heard somewhere that TTTT will be back this summer as well, but I can't remember where. Much as I would like to see it happen, it is IMHO unlikely The Gong Show is coming back.

As for PYL...please be true and please be good. I would apply, but the casting page says they're only looking for people in Southern California.

I'd love to see a 20th anniversary Millionaire return.


I would too, but isn't Millionaire barred from returning to US primetime because ABC lost that lawsuit with Celador, and the syndicated version was only allowed to continue because it was negotiated under a different contract? Did I get that right?
Tricia stared at them.

"That must be very boring, isn't it?" she blurted out.

"Yes."

"So why..."

"Except..."

"Yes? Except what?"

"Game shows. We quite like game shows."

Maybe they could get Jim Peck to host..
Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.

I didn't even consider the 50s era shows. Should've realized networks would've had more back then. :P

You forgot Two For The Money, which during that season ran from March-September 1957; so that makes it ten.

BTW, I looked at the PYL contestant application; and the one thing that disqualifies me is that I don't have a "Facebook" account.

Vulture posted an article this morning. Both Press Your Luck and Card Sharks will premiere on ABC sometime this summer. PYL will feature a new bonus round where the winner goes head-to-head against the Whammy.
