As far as I know, status quo for the establishment in New York; LMAD and Price in the morning, Wheel and Jeopardy! on WABC in the 7:00 hour, and Feud at 7 and 7:30 on WWOR.

You Bet Your Life, as I mentioned in the thread concerning the show, comes to WNYW at 7:30 on the 13th.

So in the NYC area, YBYL will be competing against WOF, which gets good ratings. Good luck to Jay and Kevin. I'll watch a couple of shows out of curiosity.

The only noticeable updates I see in the Harrisburg, PA market is that YBYL will air the double run in the 6pm weekday hour on the CW channel of WHP.

WPMT still has Family Feud, and is airing it all the time at Who Cares O'Clock, no major changes there.

25 Words stays on the MyNet subchannel of WHP in the 5pm hour.

No changes to Wheel, J, LMAD, and TPIR, all on WHP in their same time slots.

In Austin, KTBC (Fox O&O) is airing YBYL at 6:30 opposite Wheel of Fortune on KXAN, which I'm pretty sure has been in that spot on their schedule since it started in syndication.

The only other change that I see is that Family Feud moves from 6:00, 6:30, and another hour late at night on KNVA to 5:00, 6:00, and 6:30 (with Daytime Jeopardy at 5:30.) This started alongside some other shuffles to make room for programs that otherwise would have been pre-empted for Olympics coverage on sister station KXAN.

Family Feud gets a sextuple run on WBNX-55--3:30 to 4:30 PM, 7 to 8 PM, 9 to 10 PM.
You Bet Your Life gets a double run from 8 to 9 PM on 55.  A 3-hour prime access/primetime block!
25 Words or Less' double run has a slight time adjustment, also on 55, from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM.

Daytime Jeopardy! stays at 6:30 PM on WUAB-43.  Everything else also stays where it has previously aired with one exception--no sign of Funny You Should Ask.

  • I'm as empty as this box.
  • You Bet Your Life: WITI at 10:35 PM
  • Unchanged: J!, Wheel, Feud, FYSA, 25WOL
  • FYSA note: The second run has more often than not been replaced with paid programming last season, and this trend seems to continue.

Network Daytime:
Let's Make a Deal: 9am
Price is Right:10am

Funny You Should Ask: 8:30am, CW (KSTW, CW11)
25 Words or Less x2: 1pm & 1:30pm, FOX (KCPQ/Q13)
Family Feud x4: 5pm, 5:30pm, 7pm, 7:30pm, CW (KSTW/CW11)
You Bet Your Life *x4*: 6pm, 6:30pm, FOX (Q13), reair? (or 4 runs?) at 7pm & 7:30pm, MyTV (KZJO) (sister station of the FOX affil)

You can make a three hour syndicated block out with channel changes, from Feud #3 & 4 at 5pm, You Bet Your Life at 6p, then Wheel/J! at 7p.  Great run for one of the nights where ABC is doing games.

Anyone else disappointed that Funny You Should Ask is getting relegated to strange hours for the most part? I get that it's typical for Byron Allen's shows to not get the best timeslots, but I'd like for a station to try a FYSA/25 Words block.

Whatís in it for the stations to continue committing good timeslots to reruns of reruns of a show that didnít set the world on simmer in the first place?

Anyone know if 25WoL is back in the regular studio this upcoming season, or will it remain in the Remote COVID format?

Back in the studio, and the word on the street is that even more changes are in store for it.

Poking through some schedules and I've found something slightly alarming: No Boston-based outlet has picked up YBYL at all. New Hampshire's WMUR is airing it at 10:30 AM alongside the second 25WOL run, but wouldn't the lack of a clearance in a Top 10 market/Fox's largest non O&O market be a bit lazy?

It isn't for lack of trying, WFXT's 2:00 hour is being taken up by reruns of the prior weekday's TMZ and ET (the latter replacing 2018-19 Millionaire reruns). Then again, this was the same market that had abysmal clearances for Celebrity Name Game until it was too late.
