This is a big chunk of the primetime daily lineup to take considering how tame MG is (and how lame the HS game is). Weekend airings would have been nice.

I for one am excited to see Split Second coming to Buzzr.  I haven’t seen this show since the mid 90’s on The Family Channel.

When i saw LMAD on Buzzr back in ‘16, I thought “Split second couldn’t be that far behind...”


Yet here we are. I am shocked.
You might very well think that, of course I couldn't possibly comment…

If I'm not mistaken, isn't LMAD the only Hatos-Hall show that Fremantle owns outright? If not, maybe Buzzr is slowly dipping their toe into licensing shows from outside companies.

Query: What is the status of the Hatos-Hall shows? Are they intact or destroyed? Is there any chance Split Second with Tom could be shown? Cause, IMHO, it was light years better than Monty's.

And, given Masked Singer's success, why hasn't someone looked at Masquerade Party for a nice little GSN offering?

AFAIK, ABC Split Second is mostly gone. Shame too, because from what I've seen it was quite fun and intense for an early '70s quizzer. I want to say the network reused either those tapes or Password's tapes for Family Feud.

Wiki confirms this. Too bad. I thought Tom Kennedy's SS was one of his best shows.

Agreed. I trust Wiki for information like this as much as I trust a telemarketer.

At first I took their word on this since ABC was prone to wiping during that era, but then I remembered that there were clips from a couple episodes in that special Monty Hall hosted in 1975, so who knows?

And have you seen "Masquerade Party"?  One viewing and you have your answer...

I wouldn't mind seeing Masquerade Party rerun, I enjoyed the one episode of the 1974 version that's floating around the trading circuit.

Hopefully that's not the only episode of the 1974 version that exists today!
