The taping schedule was brutal.  2150 episodes in just a few months.

Can anyone make heads/tails out of the Combs FF episode numbers on the Buzzr site?  They were airing daytime episodes from early 1989 with episode numbers in the 100s, now they're airing episodes from 1989 with episode numbers in the 2300s.

Maybe I've missed something, possibly even something obvious, but where on Buzzr's site are you seeing episode numbers for anything?  All I see are broadcast years (or for some shows, season #), and about half the time an airdate.

It's not obvious.  If you go to Buzzr's schedule page and use "View Page Source" mode on your browser (I use Chrome--it may or may not work with other browsers), the episode numbers will appear.  Can't remember whoever turned me on to that little trick, but whoever you are thank you.

Looks like the episodes in question are from the syndicated run, the Bengals vs. 49ers celebrity week.

The episode numbers (126-130) without the prefix also match the numbering from when they aired on GSN (PDFs to the rescue), and the two is probably just a prefix Buzzr tacked on to differentiate for the nighttime run shows.

The nighttime shows on the masters are slated as, for example from another episode, 89FF106S. Whether they slated the NFL week differently (not reflected in anything from the GSN days or indicated on the few nighttime masters i have) or whether Buzzr just, as mentioned, numbered the PM shows different for their own purposes (I tend to believe this - you should see my employers system sometime, holy hell) I can't say but I'd strongly guess the latter.

What were the numbers on the nighttime masters you have? I've seen a couple of daytime slates (four-digit sequential number followed by "D" [e.g. 0001D for the CBS premiere]), and that one nighttime one that Buzzr posted. Are the ones you have in that same "YYFFNNNS" format?

From what you're looking at when you see the GSN PDFs, GSN put in the 3-digit episode #s for the daytime counterpart, but for the nighttime counterpart, they put in the 4-digit episode #s, as far as I can remember. So the Bengals vs. 49ers Super Bowl rematch week was 0126-0130 and the Singing Sisters vs. Musical Misters was 0146-0150.

Buzzr announced a "Black Friday Frenzy" marathon of Supermarket Sweep, $ale, and Temptation. It looks like we may be getting PAX-era Sweep, based on the promo.

So last night on MG/HS....was the third $30K win.

Also mentioned in the old ATGS post outlining all of said wins. 

Tonight should be the official Christmas episode, with the electronic wall displaying tree designs.

Aha, so they'll cut off with the Leave it to Beaver reunion.

And we're not getting the premiere episode ever, huh?

Wasn’t the tape of ep 1 damaged?  Seem to recall it airing on NBC blemished.

So not only do we not get the Bill Cullen week, they’re missing a self-promotion opportunity by jumping back right before a week with David Ruprecht!

We should get in an episode or two of the Ruprecht week.

WHAT?!?! No Bill Cullen week? I feel like someone should check in on Matt to see how he's doing.

I got the news this morning, and I'm not taking it well.  Still, the prevailing wisdom from my friend who told me the news is that Buzzr will cycle through all these episodes a second time, and then continue to move forward with new ones.  The theory being they're too invested in the series to have only copied forty episodes.  In the traditional network model, it would make sense to have reruns playing during the less-viewed holiday season, so maybe there's some logic to that theory.
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
