Buzzr posting Winston-sponsored IGAS episodes
« on: May 07, 2019, 01:28:32 PM »
So it seems Buzzr has now taken to posting Winston-sponsored episodes of I've Got a Secret on Facebook. They've posted at least one so far (along with a surgeon general's warning about smoking).

I think this period is when the show was at its best, so that's good news!

This is marvelous news.  There are many of these that GSN never got around to airing, even when they didn't have a problem with the smoking content.
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.

If I recall correctly, weren't the Winston episodes relegated to Friday nights as "lost episodes" on GSN and only a precious few actually aired?

That's right, though I want to say that there might have been a couple dozen that eventually aired.

The beauty of this Buzzr show (and I hope it's the first of many) is that they're running the episode completely uncut.  Not only do we get the show, we get the forbidden advertising content too!

Actually quite a few Winston IGAS shows finally aired spanning 1955 to 1961 during the days of B/W Overnight in the early 2000s back when I used to do the nightly B/W Overnight Guide on the old alt.tv game show group.     The IGAS shows that have still remained largely MIA over the years are the shows from mid-1953 to early 1955 that were sponsored by Cavalier cigarettes.
