Valentine's Day special programming announced...including the debut of....BZZZ!

They're also promoting 1977 episodes of Tattletales with an image of Bert in a tuxedo, so that may mean rarely seen nighttime shows.

Has GSN shown Tattletales from this late in the original run?  I remember GSN showing episodes from 1976 during their afternoon block of relationship shows at least 15 years ago.  (BUZZR omitted since I don't think they have shown anything past '75.)

A small scattering of shows from 1977 and 1978 turned up in various early years marathons, specials, and stunts, Game Show Saturday Night, and at least once in that weekly Sunday 3AM random GT show slot they did for a year or two in the mid 2000s. Easily less than 20 total, though.

And I don't think any of them were from the syndicated version.

To the best of my knowledge, at least, GSN never broadcast anything from the nighttime show.

Would there be ways to distinguish a CBS episode from a syndie one, aside from Bert in a tux?

Besides a mention of Firestone Program Syndication in the credits, I want to say the payouts for the rooting sections were bigger, but I'm not 100% sure of that. It was also a weekly show.

Not that I'm...um...anxious or anything, but we're only a couple weeks out from what you guys were telling me was going to be *the week*.  Do we have anything confirming Bill's appearance on MGHS is coming soon?

Thanks.  I trust somebody with such access is saving them for me? I can watch it on their website, but I don't know how to save that stream.

I'll make sure you get them one way or another.

IIRC, the nighttime TT had five questions, the first four worth $150 and the final one $300.

Seeing the last of the first MG/HS batch last night,  I was interested to hear Dorothy and Gene make reference to a "don't write " light that appeared behind the celebrity nameplates whenever they matched.  Don't recall any references to such a thing on other versions of MG.  Anyone in the know know if other versions used this sort of indicator?
Post over.  You may enter your smarmy comebacks here.

There was definitely something similar in the MG '7x era, as I had heard Gene make subtle comments about the "Don't Write" lights on several occasions.
