No, I saw those and they repeated last Monday and Tuesday's shows as scheduled.

Ah- yeah it stinks, but maybe it was an problem on their end (with the timing issues maybe a computer error)

Not a bad ep though- FIVE blocks hit in the 3rd round, she finds the one safe spot with the longshot to win, then beats the Gauntlet at the last secondů)

I'm guessing the commercial timing was for Randy's second episode but somehow the video file for a different episode got cued up instead. Maybe it'll get fixed for Sunday's rerun.

Looks like Buzzr inherited the GSN Monkeys along with most of its classics content...;-) 

Hopefully they make amends as far as airing Randy, Part Two, if it was indeed technical difficulties.  If not, not the end of the world of course.  Sucks of course and seems like fate trolling us, but, yeah.


Some days I need Dick Clark to step in and give me the perfect clue...

Looking at Zap2it's listings, it appears that Randy's second episode (17 by Buzzr's numbering) is scheduled to run Sunday.

Commercial breaks are way off, we just cut to a commercial with 13 seconds to go for this contestant.  I'm assuming this is because this episode was meant to air yesterday so the timing is gonna be off since these break times were meant for a different episode?  On the bright side since this episode airs on Sunday there's a good chance we'll see it with properly placed commercial breaks on that day!!   :)

Everything online about this episode has Anneliis' name spelled "Annelius".

RANDY'S ON!
Good! I was irrationally upset about them skipping his episode.

I'm guessing here, but I'm thinking the episode Buzzr aired the 20th was episode A-92D, 9/3/79. I say that, since at the start of the show Tom mentions that they've given away over $75,000 in the last four shows, and right before that day's Gauntlet Tom expands on that by saying if Gwendoline won, it'd be the fourth win in five attempts, and in Randy's recollections he mentions that there were three other $25,000 winners besides him on his second tape day. So, since we know Randy's second show was A-88D, counting four shows forward would get us to A-92D. Which means the commercial alignments should go back to normal by Monday, if they air A-89D tomorrow, A-90D on Thursday, etc.

...and for those of you looking for a slightly better copy of not just the contestant plug in question (at the 4:44 mark), but the entire episode (ads & all), look no further than here.

Nice restoration! Love the M*A*S*H plug at the end.

Either I hadn't noticed or completely forgot until yesterday that after coming back from break, Tom said: "Fred Amasia was truly amazing..."
FRED?  ;D
