This never caught anyone's attention, even for the music, which would have been the more likely trigger.

One thing I noticed is there's very little policing of the use of the name for trivia nights, radio contests, and homemade Youtube games. That may change now, but the owners of the format certainly kept the title circulating around which is in a very small part helping their name recognition.

In fact, their .com site has Youtube embeds from VHS uploads, so they are using it to their advantage. I had registered the .tv domain long ago when it looked like they lost control of the .com. Within the last year or so, they actually have some content there now, and probably paid a ransom sum to get the domain back. The focus has been on the international properties, so it looks like a lot slid by on the domestic side.

Revisiting Santa Esmerelda, a la the "Bullseye" pilot?

Different part of the song, but yeah, that was intended to be a little Easter egg in there.

During TV's early days, this would be considered  a "runaway" production.
Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.

It looks like Name That Tune is coming back for a second spin, and this time they're recording in Ireland during the first two weeks of November.
Check out the variety of game show books under ten dollars I've written on my Amazon.com page!

Not a surprise on filming location, as Fox has launched a production hub in Dublin to test unscripted formats for potential international distribution. Perhaps NTT is part of this testing ...

And based on the info we know and this, looks like Jane caught a case of breakthrough Covid while they were taping (she's vaccinated and they did regular testing)
