GSN to air some syndicated WML for first time!
« on: Today at 10:39:21 AM »
Just a few, but this crowd will approve.

Starting on December 16, GSN will once again run selected episodes of What's My Line and I've Got A Secret through the holidays.  They've done this for a few years now, and usually there's nothing particularly noteworthy to report.  However, this year they're going to air at least two episodes of the syndicated What's My Line that they've never shown.  The mystery guests for those episodes are Monty Hall and Jack Narz.

The holiday event kicks off on the 16th with the debut episode of What's My Line, which is always a treat to see.  I do not know the time, nor the dates of any of the other episodes they'll be showing.  If there have been press releases I haven't seen them, but this information comes reliably from a GSN staffer and reference book co-author who prefers to remain anonymous.
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.
