Marcus Lemonis and Nancy Glass have bought the IP of Hatos-Hall Productions- so they now own LMAD and the rights to make Split Second, among other shows…

Dreading how the inevitable "MILLION DOLLAR Split Second" will be sucked dry of every ounce of life essence and will bear almost no resemblance whatsoever to the original, or even to Monty's version.

Guess when the deal went pending, that explains LMaD & Split Second's disappearance from BUZZR?

I doubt Split Second is indeed on anybody’s radar, much less for a gigantic prize. Why Marcus made this deal is anybody’s guess.

I actually thought Fremantle owned LMAD outright, though I had my suspicions that Monty’s estate still had some tie to it, given that it’s daily runs on BUZZR never seemed to be all that lengthy.

And as far as a Split Second revival, I could see someone thinking this might make a decent daily syndie strip. No illusions that it would be a Wheel/J!-type juggernaut, of course, but something that could make a little money for a season or two.

Heck, maybe they’ll try a Masquerade Party revival—which, given The Masked Singer’s success, wouldn’t be the most nonsensical idea ever.

There's always a chance that Sharon Hall could make a few tweaks to the CBS daily version, like the return of original-recipe LMAD pricing games and 2-player Big Deals...

You have put the cart EONS before the horse. No need to be this extra.

My Dad worked for Lemonis briefly and said he was an absolute idiot.

And he's crying about it all the way to the bank.
It was Bob Barker. He was eating a bologna and cheese-ball sandwich.
