Give me a glass of wine and all the minutiae floods back into my mind.
John Daly did It's News to Me and WML at the same time in '51. And I'm sure Bud did something similar with TTTT and Number Please. Ok I'm done. Carry on  ;D

And, at least in my TV market at the time, CC and TTTT were aired back-to-back for at least a while. 

Jane Lynch is a good choice for Link.  Bringing back Anne after almost 20 years (already!?!?) For the sake of nostalgia is overkill.  George Gray would still be a good pick, but he's gone on to bigger and better things.

Prior to "Number Please", Bud certainly did it with  TTTT & "Beat the Clock".

Maybe this time around, when Jane says "You are the Weakest Link, goodbye," the floor can open up and the player drops out of sight. It worked for "Russian Roulette."

With "who's still standing?"  and Ellen's "Know or Go"  pretty much overdone already.

Another Promo a bit longer.

Jane has always been my pick to host Weakest Link.  The Set is interesting. I am not really a fan of the podiums.

Knocked it out of the park, she did. I was never a huge fan of the original, but I'll watch this a couple times just to see her at work.

And is recovering from a heart attack.

And his persona has become unnaturally smiley and the complete opposite of a Weakest Link host.

So they've done 13 episodes. Other than Jane, the one other lady who I could see pull this off with her snarkiness is Ellen DeGeneres. But she has a full plate and her own issues to deal with  at the moment.
