Maybe you can explain this one, then. The guide I'm sure most of us have been using lists the Betty White and Richard Kline shows as episodes #229 to #231. Back in January, when BUZZR aired its tribute to Betty, the schedules listed two of the Betty/Richard shows as #224 and #225. I'm at a loss to figure out where the mistake in the fan-compiled listings are, since I heavily doubt the actual master tapes of the show (which I'm sure is where BUZZR is pulling their episode numbers from) would be mislabeled like that.

That's the $64,000 question. (Not The $64,000 Question.) My guess is that either TV Guide erred or a change was made at production level. We will find out when those two weeks air in regular rotation.

There was no 1/1/80 show due to the Cotton Bowl parade in the East, and the Rose Parade in the West.

Also no 1/3/80 show due to Magazine. Other 1980 pre-emptions due to Magazine are 2/7, 3/6, 4/3, and 5/1. There were no other known pre-emptions for the rest of the run.

Looking ahead to next Wednesday 4/6, episode 176 will be skipped.  It would have originally aired on January 9, 1980.

Just throwing it out there...
Where are you getting listings with original airdates on them? The Buzzrtv.com link I have doesn't have the dates.
Calendars are amazing.
Problem is, calendars don't help when

1) you know there's an upcoming mistake in them, and
2) you have no way of knowing where the mistake is until you reach it.

Contemporary TV Guides and newspaper TV listings. This is how we know when pre-emptions occur for "Magazine", and regional pre-emptions for live coverage of the Papal visit (#112 was pre-empted in PDT 10/2/79, and #113 was pre-empted in EDT and CDT 10/3/79).

Let me clarify my original question: where are the listings that show which particular episodes are airing on Buzzr on particular days? For example, where can I find something that says that the 1/9/1980 episode isn't being aired by Buzzr?
https://buzzrtv.com/schedule/schedule_by_date/22-4-6/America/New_York

There's the schedule for the 6th. If you open the source code for the page, it'll show the episode numbers for everything airing that day...

Look in the the source code - I had a feeling there was something I was missing...

So Roxie Roker and Dick Gautier appeared in six episodes from 5/7 through 5/14?

Ya know, how hard would it be to Greasemonkey that information out onto the actual rendered page?

That is my understanding based on TV Guide listings.

Someone on another forum alerted me to a potential news-related pre-emption on April 25 for coverage of the failed hostage rescue in Iran, which happened the previous evening DC time. This would have bumped Jack Carter and Meredith MacRae's last two episodes (#250-251) to 4/28-4/29, and Robert Mandan and Joan Prather's week (#253-256) forward by a day to 4/30, 5/2, 5/3-5/7 (with intervening Magazine and weekend), making Roxie Roker and Dick Gautier's week (#257-261) a 5-episode week from 5/8-5/9 and 5/12-5/14 (with an intervening weekend).

A bump would explain why TV Guide lists six episodes for Roker/Gautier. The schedule change would have reached Radnor before the 5/10 issue went to press.

We'll find out for sure when these episodes air.

I looked at the index of the Vanderbilt TV News Archive and they don't show times the reports aired, but they do have listings for 3 hours and 10 minutes of "Friday Morning" coverage. ("CBS Morning News" still had a one-hour slot before "Captain Kangaroo".) If I were a betting man I would say "Whew!" was pre-empted nationally and the episode bumped to the next day.

If 177 has a different champion to start, than whoever it was at the end of 175, that'll be a bit of a red flag.

Uh-oh...

To the guy who remembered seeing the original broadcast, how long did your winter break last? 
I'm a pacifist, and even I would like to see a little more action.

I don't remember how my winter break was scheduled back then. OR, as I have said before, I may have had a snow day when Stephen returned.  But what is for certain:

I saw his return, and Jay & Company did not just sneak him in with little fanfare --- far from it!!!

 That is all I will continue to say for now.

This may be a bit much to ask, but do you remember if they uttered the name "blackie" in his return appearance? If they did, that would more than likely get it on the skips list now.

I'm pretty sure that the nickname was mentioned at least once upon his return to the champion seat, picking up where he left off.

It would be a shame that Buzzr would skip the episode(s) that he appeared on post-injury instead of muting/editing out any references to his self-titled nickname.

Well yes, and....

Wait. EpisodeS?

EDIT: He appeared on more than one?  So he DIDN'T win his first re-attempt at the Gauntlet?

Yeah, if BUZZR can mute the word "midget", they can mute this too.

Only now, they seem to be more about throwing out the baby with the bathwater.  Hence them skipping episodes altogether.

I guess people complaining about the muting out made them decide to not bother with airing the whole episode.  Kind of like how we didn't want credit crunches (they asked), so they cut out fee plugs instead.
