Do you remember BZZZ!?

https://twitter.com/BUZZRtv/status/1219689643429519361 - Remember the short-lived dating show BZZZ! from the mid/late 1990s? Buzzr is going to show it for Valentine's Day! :D

And perhaps the bigger news, episodes of the syndie Tattetales from '77 are in there as well.

Anyone remember if BZZZ! was a choice on that BUZZR survey a few months back?

Huh..."BUZZ on BUZZR". The promos just write themselves, don't they?

The survey asked if Buzzr should air dating/relationship shows, then gave a list of about eight such shows, asking which one(s) you'd most want to see. Bzzz! was indeed one of those choices.

I don't recall the syndie version of TT.  Was it any different (formatics, mo' money, etc.) than the daytime?

I think the only difference was an increase in prize money for the last question of the game—if that.

Little detail:  The two P+ eps are the Monday and Tuesday shows from Betty's last week of any Password with Allen still hosting.

Minor nitpick--P+ was on a Tuesday-Monday cycle by then (so they actually aired Tuesday and Wednesday, 9/23-24/80), but they are indeed the first two shows of that taping.

I think the only difference was an increase in prize money for the last question of the game—if that.

Muchas gracias.

Does Fremantle have an ownership stake in Edwards-Billett?

If the Wikipedia is to be taken seriously, Fremantle does has a stake in TorC. If they did actually buy out the Edwards catalog, then I, for one, would rather see TorC or "Cross-Wits" than "Bzzz!"

Nope.

I've never seen a syndie Tattletales and would like to (I'm sure that probably applies to most of us).  For those of us who don't have BUZZR, I hope it will eventually find its way to youtube afterwards.

Agreed. “Bzzz!” is a nice obscurity, and it holds some nostalgic value for me, but other than that, I’ll take some of Ralph’s others shows any day of the week.
