And exactly how many people ďtruly want to seeĒ one particular episode of  Body Language? Itís not worth the effort.
I'm sure their thought is that with their library of thousands of shows, nobody is going to miss one episode here and there. And while this group proves that "nobody" is an exaggeration, they're not wrong to think that.

For those wondering why, the former has a bunch of Indian jokes, while the latter has Patrick Wayne acting out the word "midgets".
Speaking of which, a contestant actually said the word "midget" in yesterday's episode and BUZZR forgot to bleep it.

I'm kind of surprised this one didn't happen sooner. I think Trebek CC will have a wider appeal at that time slot.

Iím guessing they didnít want, or may have been contractually prevented from, CC running against new episodes of Alexís better-known show. And given time zone differences, that would have happened in at least a handful of markets, with pretty much any prime time slot they put it in. For obvious reasons, thatís no longer an issue.

I agree that Trebek CC will have wider appeal, though. But I hope Narz Concentration doesnít get too shafted. Thereís a lot of it we still havenít seen. And Iím thinking it must not have done badly, for it to have gotten an upgrade from 7:30 to 8:00 not that long ago.
