After the shows from the marathon in September air again ending on Thanksgiving Day, Friday jumps back to where the run started on Labor Day--show 78.  This means Randy's first show should rerun on the 10th of December, and his win should air on the 13th.  By weird coincidence, in between on the 12th is the 20th anniversary of his passing.  The 16th should be episode 92, a great episode which BUZZR mangled in its first airing.

For those who keep track of these things, how many times does BUZZR usually repeat shows before they add new episodes to the rotation?  I'm guessing they'll likely run thru the entire 65 shows again - do you think we'll see new episodes after that or are they likely to repeat again before adding new ones?  Based on past history...just curious.

My guess is they'll get through them a couple more times before getting new ones, but it's really anybody's guess. Some shows have gone a year or more without new episodes and then new ones pop up out of the blue. Other shows get new episodes regularly every few months.

I also have a slight hunch we might see a week of celebrity shows during this year's Betty White Christmas, but the schedule for that isn't out yet so I don't know for sure.

...(do the DirectTVs and DISHs even carry it? If so I suppose they would qualify too, I think I can access those data feeds as well)...

DirecTV doesn't carry it on the national satellite-delivered lineup, but I have their "Local Channel Connector" add-on that integrates OTA channels into the on-screen guide. Looks like their source has decent data for some Buzzr shows ("Super Password," for example, has celebrities and original air dates listed)... but "Whew!" is not one of those.

Ah, that might be why. I should grab a Super Password and see what NPVR does with that.

Betty was on five episodes in total: 3 with Richard Kline (3/26/80-3/28/80) and 2 with John Saxon (5/29/80-5/30/80, end of the series).

Since it has been reported that Whew! has been a big hit for BUZZR, one would guess they'd want to get fresh shows out there ASAP.  ISTR Concentration's original batch of 30 shows was repeated once before fresher shows aired.

Celebrity Whew! as part of the Betty White Christmas would be a pleasant surprise...

I didn't hear that, but it's good to know Whew is doing well for them.  Are ratings for any BUZZR shows available online anywhere?

Negative, but the streamers have generally reported that BUZZR is one of their most viewed channels.
