For some reason, I thought that came a couple years later. Maybe I’m thinking of when they started displaying the solution during Gene’s intro?

Are you thinking of the contestant showing the solution instead of Alex? I know that was a couple more years down the road...

In unrelated news to this, CC continues to at least the week before Xmas 1987 (151 on 3/15, OAD supposedly 12/18/87).  TATTLETALES goes back in time from 252 to 202 on 3/12.

We'll get into 1988 on 3/22.

And only get as far as 1/6/88 on 3/25.  3/26 we go back to ep 1.

No, no. At some point, during the intro, Gene would explain the puzzle, and they would superimpose the solution there too, then wipe to the cars.

According to a promo that started airing today, the Card Sharks celebrity tournament from 1980 starts airing on April 1st.

This was an enjoyable little marathon. Quite a few things I hadn’t seen in a long time if ever. (I’m not sure I’d ever seen anything from the To Tell the Truth ‘80 run.)

Glad they kept the WML color panel intros for these episodes. While I’m not a huge stickler about minor edits here & there, the panel intros are really not something that should be edited out. Hopefully they’ll keep the intros in new-to-network WML eps going forward.

And about TPIR, I had a somewhat amusing thought, wondering how many casual game show fans stumbled across it in their channel guides or Pluto/STIRR/etc. app, turned it on expecting Barker era, and were lost as to what was going on.

I've only seen a few episodes of Primetime Cullen TPIR, but what I have seen has always been just wonderfully bonkers. I also enjoyed that this episode gave a little hint of what the show would eventually become, with the winning bidder playing a game for more prizes, instead of just being given an automatic bonus.

I also find myself liking Feud '94 more than 16-year-old me did when it came out.

Used to seeing it back in the day on GSN...think it was a weekend only airing by the time I got the network.  What I DIDN'T expect was to see the old Viacom ident at the end (yes, here we go with closing logos again...)  But really, GSN took care to eliminate that from its prints as well as other syndicators' logos, so that came out of nowhere. 
Post over.  You may enter your smarmy comebacks here.

Is Buzzr rerunning any of these, or is anyone putting them on Youtube?

They're rerunning a good chunk of them today, I think.

One question that I hope someone can shed some light on is the closing music that Price used in this era (between approx. 1959 and 1961.) It's certainly stock music... but I wonder if someone possibly knows what it might be? I have video pasted below, cued up to the closing.

I've often wondered about that music as well...hope some answers will come...it is a bright and bouncy tune!

Apologies for the bump, but per Buzzr's Instagram, starting in October, we'll be getting Cullen TPIR every Sunday at 4:00pm.

So we finally get to hear the dulcet tones of Don Pardo on Buzzr, on a regular basis.

One of the things I remembered about the Cullen episodes when GSN aired them was, when they announced the home showcase winners, they left the names and addresses in. They have aired three home showcase results episodes so far (at least, that's how many my DVR picked up), and now, the names and addresses are censored, and whited out on the screen (although they did let one name slip through, and either they forgot to remove the last names when the host congratulated them, or decided it wasn't necessary).

What still surprises me is, multiple people - wasn't it over 60 for one of them - got the price of the complete set on the nose, to the penny, but they did not get their prices by knowing the prices of all of the individual items separately.

The one show (the third one) I saw on 10/13 had Merv Griffin hosting for vacationing Uncle Bill. Contestants were bidding $1 higher than a previous bid even back then.
