Cullen TPIR on Buzzr?
« on: February 24, 2019, 05:39:17 PM »
It's not on Buzzr's website yet, so take this with a rather large grain of salt, but TitanTV is showing a fairly radically different schedule for Friday, March 8, that includes a B&W block in primetime: The Price is Right (Cullen) at 8PM, IGAS at 8:40PM and WML? at 9:10PM.

Not sure if this link will work, but: https://titantv.com/programming/daily.aspx/callsign/WAGA-DT3/channel/234/major/0/minor/0/cid/2009727/sid/2005589/network/BUZZR/pt/4/hd/1/lid/0bda280b-6401-4f1c-bd06-869318046baf/date/201903082000/

Here's the zap2it show page?

Definitely there on 3/8 at 8 and 11, 3/10 at 8 and 11.
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!"

If Zap2It is to believed, they're starting with the 2/1/61 episode, which had Arlene Francis as a guest host.

The entire schedule for 3/8 seems to be jiggled around to heck from 10:00 on:

10:00/10:30 AM: Body Language
11:00 AM: Match Game PM
11:30 PM: Match Game
12:00 PM: To Tell The Truth
12:30 PM: What's My Line?
1:00/1:30 PM: Body Language
2:00/2:30 PM: Password Plus
3:00/3:30 PM: Super Password
4:00 PM: To Tell The Truth
4:30 PM: What's My Line?
5:00/5:30/6:00/6:30 PM: Family Feud
7:00/7:30 PM: Password Plus
[8:00-10:00: Said B&W block]
10:00/10:30 PM: Supermarket Sweep
[Repeat 8-11 from 11-2:00 AM]
2:00/2:30/3:00/3:30 AM: Match Game
[Regular B&W block]

Also, on 3/10 it looks like the Sunday afternoon block of Supermarket Sweep has been replaced by Body Language.

No Concentration ??

The 3/9 schedule is unchanged with the 4:00-8:00 PM Saturday block intact.

Tomorrow the schedule for 3/11 hits the listing services and it'll be interesting to see if this is a Friday-only measure.

At the moment, it looks like the TV Passport schedule for Monday, 3/11 is filling in with the normal lineup. So I’m guessing the 3/8 & 3/10 changes are a one-off. (Maybe a tribute weekend of some sort? I suppose we’ll get a promo soon enough.)

Perhaps there’s a bigger picture issue going on here, though: Could this be a sign that BUZZR is on the verge of clearing up the issues that have kept TPIR reruns off TV all these years?

Granted, it may be a bit optimistic to infer this from a Cullen-era TPIR one-off. And I’m certainly not "all in" on a prediction that it's happening just yet. Then again, BUZZR getting Classic Concentration and MGHSH reruns looked like a fantasy this time a year ago.

On a side note, nice to see Body Language returning briefly. I don't believe it's aired since BUZZR started streaming.

Wouldn't eps from '61 be in the public domain at this point?

Assuming so -- we have a local, low power independent digital sub-station who has been airing Cullen TPiR randomly, sporadically for over a year now.   They've aired about 30 eps in total.  They're the same ones seen on GSN.  Said station is almost 100% public domain content, and program against :08 and :38 of each hour.

Would any of the issues that have been keeping 1972-present TPIR off the schedule have any effect on the Cullen version though? Personally, I would think not.

So Buzzr shared Buzzerblog's Facebook post and said it's part of a celebration of International Women's Day. (As pointed out earlier, Arlene Francis guest hosts the episode they're airing.)

The only possible thing I can think of is if there's some issue between Fremantle and CBS (and anyone else who might have an ownership claim) involving the naming rights, similar to what appears to be the issue with Hasbro over Scrabble.

Otherwise I think I agree with you. That's part of the reason I don't really buy into the online fan theories that the entire series is being kept off the air because of furs, Barker's perceived beef with certain models, CBS supposedly fearing ratings erosion, or whatever--None of those issues should have any bearing on the Cullen version whatsoever. (Those theories all have other flaws, too, though not the least of which is the lack of relevancy to Cullen's version.)

Considering Cullen TPIR left GSN about the same time Barker did and never returned to national TV until now, I've figured it probably boiled down to some naming rights issue. I'm not a copyright attorney, though, and there's a lot behind the scenes that we're not privy to, so I'll gladly admit that's speculation on my part.

Random, but do the "rules" surrounding Barker's version not airing in reruns apply to Drew's? It's been 12 years, so I'm a little surprised BUZZR hasn't aired episodes from say, 2007-10?

I do remember back in the GSN dark period, they did air TPiR (and FF94), something about how those rights were negotiated separately. I believe Cullen TPiR was part of that package, and that they aired it during the dark period too. Could be wrong there.

I don't know if that is still the case with the rights. Simply presented as a data point for the discussion. Regardless, this March 8 showing may be a one-time negotiation.
