Here it is... the promo they should've been running since they announced the pickup.

Now, that's more like it.

They finally did do a decent promo (using show clips) during P+, I'll share it here later tonight.

EDIT: Here it is... the promo they should've been running since they announced the pickup.

Yep.  The others were right down there with the "Tic Tac is Back" campaign, and at least some of those had some references to how you play tic-tac-toe.

Airing at 3:30 in Chicago, same time as Jeopardy. Now I get how some of the older folks here felt having to decide what to watch when two games ran opposite each other in the daytime.

The shows for Whew's launch marathon on September 5th are shows 1-2 & 4-7.  Episode 3 is being skipped.
https://buzzrtv.com/schedule/schedule_by_date/2021-9-5/America/Los_Angeles

The run then jumps ahead to show #0078 starting the subsequent Monday, in sequence from there, skipping 70 episodes.

The civilian part of the run did 133 shows, last one 11/2. Show 78 rewinds us back 55 episodes to early August.  Don't know the exact date, but 2-3? weeks before Randy's episodes ballpark.

That is a very large group of episodes being skipped, and regardless I am super excited to see this show.
(Links use the west coast timings since I live over here and so that's the version I use. Add hours for your time zone accordingly)

I'm ok with that. I think I'd enjoy seeing the show more after its gotten its legs under it a little. At least for starters.

For its entire run, “Whew!” was preempted on the first Thursday of each month for CBS’ monthly “Magazine” (titled according to the month, e.g. “April Magazine,” “May Magazine,” etc.). Assuming no further preemptions during the early months, episode #78 should take us to 8-14-1979.

Aside from “Magazine” days, there’s another possible preemption on 10-3-1979 for news coverage of the papal visit to NYC. CBS’ games apparently didn’t air in NYC on that day (they’re not listed in the NYT), but I don’t know how the West Coast feed was handled.

So, this should be close to, if not exactly right?

Whew! 79_0001 (original airdate 4/23/1979)

Celebrity Whew! 80_0273 (original airdate 5/30/1980)

This sounds pretty realistic.  I always thought the 247 number was too low.

Too bad they're skipping so many episodes - I wonder if it's to line it more up with the calendar - so when Tom says celebrities will be playing starting Nov 5th, it'll be pretty close to that date when they get to them (?)

Hopefully the skipped episodes will pop up eventually.

Do we have a list of the celebrities who played? I poked around some of the Wiki-type articles about the show and didn't see any. I count ~29 weeks of celebrity shows, give or take.

I am wondering if there is some subtraction to be done...perhaps some of the celebrities didn't clear their appearances? The only celeb shows I see on YouTube have Marcia Wallace, Gary Collins, Betty White, John Saxon, Mary Ann Mobley, and Robert Vaughn.

Also, that post-Thanksgiving week with no celebrities is interesting. Perhaps they saw a bump in ratings from November sweeps, and decided to make the format switch on very short notice.

Also, poking through YouTube, I found this Winker upload of show "A-131 D" with a VTR of 10/5/79, where Tom references the first celebrity week starting "next Monday." Whether this corresponds with Bryce's show 131, I'm not sure...it may be from the prior week of shows, as Tom emphasized "next" and didn't say "this Monday."

Wink also posted 132-D with the same VTR date.  Tom mentions that it's Halloween and to watch "tomorrow" for the CBS Magazine, and that they'll be back on Friday.  131-D most likely aired 10/30/79 instead of 10/31.  Looks like it could be one off.

There are nine TV Guides from early 1980 on archive.org, and looking through them yielded several weeks of celebrity listings for "Whew!" Not every consecutive week was available, and that causes a small problem: TV Guide ran Saturday-Friday, but because of preemptions, "Whew!" often changed celebrities in the middle of a week. While one would presume that five episodes were taped with each pair of celebrities, shorter or longer weeks are possible. In order to keep the data "pure," below I've listed only the dates that I found in TV Guide; my speculation as to the airdates of the rest of a taping week is in brackets.

Jan 7-11, 1980: Elaine Joyce & Sal Viscuso
Jan 14-18, 1980: Gina Hecht & Brian Patrick Clarke
Jan 21-25, 1980: Joan Prather & Jay Johnson
Jan 28-Feb 1, 1980: Roxie Roker & Richard Paul
Feb 18, 1980: Meredith MacRae & Jon Walmsley [rest of this week probably aired Feb 12-15]
Feb 19-22 & 25, 1980: Rita Moreno & Ross Martin
Feb 26-29, 1980: Mary Ann Mobley & Gary Collins [rest of this week probably aired Mar 3]
Mar 10-11, 1980: Jamie Farr & Dick Gautier [rest of this week probably aired Mar 4-5 & 7]
Mar 12-14, 1980: Marcia Wallace & Clifton Davis [rest of this week probably aired Mar 17-18]
Apr 28, 1980: Meredith MacRae & Jack Carter [see note]
Apr 29-30, May 2 & 5-6, 1980: Joan Prather & Robert Mandan
May 7-9: Roxie Roker & Dick Gautier [rest of this week may have aired May 12-13]

Note: I'm uncertain about the airdates of the rest of this taping week. After the April 3 "Magazine," new celebs should've started appearing on Thursdays until the next "Magazine" day. Possibly some shorter weeks were taped or there were additional preemptions.

To add to the above, in my own holdings...

* An episode dated April 8, 1980 with Trish Stewart and Jamie Farr
* Two episodes, dated May 20 and 21, with Mary Ann Mobley and Gary Collins
* Two episodes, dated May 22 and 23, with Marcia Wallace and Robert Vaughn
* The series finale, featuring Betty White and John Saxon.

This is great data, thanks for the research. Interesting that there aren't many repeat celebrities...looks like Marcia Wallace and Roxie Roker each did two separate weeks. Interesting that Mary Ann Mobley and Gary Collins may have had two separate weeks in Feb and May. Perhaps the May airing was a repeat.

.  According to TV Guide LA edition, the first week of celebs started Nov 5, 1979 with Carol Lawrence and Patrick (You Block!) Wayne. November 12 was Sal Viscuso and Carol Wayne (who could also be seen on Mindreaders that week) November 19-21 was Linwood Boomer and Mary Ann Mobley.  Back to regular format the next Monday.

The permanent Celebrity run started Wednesday  December 5, 1979 with Didi Conn and John Schuck
12/12-Richard Kline and Rita Moreno
12/20-Gary Collins and Trish Stewart
12/27-Robert Mandan and Michael Young.  That wraps up 1979.  If wanted, I can fill in the rest of the 1980 run.
Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.
