Definitely an upgrade from the infomercials that are in that slot now.
Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.

Must have been a cheap get, to just schedule it at 7 AM.

I would say Byron paid GSN, but that isnít likely. I guess it goes well with Match Game?

The time is a bit odd considering 25 Words has a nice afternoon slot, but I think it fits in well with what GSN is apparently trying to accomplish. Fun, light-hearted daytime games for low stakes with some play-along value. And it's not taking a slot occupied by another game.

Wouldn't be surprised if this is the first exposure to the show for many people. It aired at 10:30 am for a while here, but I wonder how many stations aired it in the middle of the night along with all the other Byron Allen shows?

Now celebrating his 19th season on GSF!

I know it's been stuck in the middle of the night in Hartford since at least 2019-20 and I know that it airs late nights in Raleigh to think of two markets off the top of my head.

At least one market (Albany, NY) will have current FYSA up against the GSN reruns.
