I'm curious about this, but in a different vein. Syndicated Millionaire comes to mind. That show aired on just about all the stations in my market over its many years. If I worked for a TV station that had aired the show in the past but was not airing it now, would I be eligible? Do these rules only apply to on-air talent, or all station personnel?

Definitely applies to all station personnel.  My understanding from at least Jeopardy (and thus Wheel) is if you work at a station that airs the show, you're ineligible until either five years after the station drops the show or you've moved on.  If you join a station that dropped them, say, three years ago? My assumption is that you'd still retain eligibility. At my J! audition three years ago, I know Maggie distinctly asked me about currently as well as whether I had in the last few years - and I am the opposite of on-air talent.
