Wow, this one came out of nowhere. I wonder if Monty Hall's estate still own the rights.

They do not. Here's the story from last year about the sale of Hatos-Hall's assets.

Of the four, I could see 3 For The Money working best on GSN; a solid trivia game that I feel didn't get a fair shake in '75. If you want to keep the same-players-all-week angle, swap the car out for a trip and you're good to go.

Split Second seems a good fit for GSN. It's a 3-player game where values are doubled in round 2, the 3rd round is more or less on the clock, and it has room for a bonus round. All that's needed is to eliminate a player in round 2 and they're all set.
This signature is currently under construction.

3 For The Money would need a complete rules revamp, especially in the final 2-minute round when the clock stops every time the lead changes hands.
Maybe if there were three rounds - the first two are played like the first round on the original (one player at a time on one team against 1, 2, or 3 players on the other), but each team is "in control" for a round, and the third round is more or less a straightforward 3-on-3 buzz-in round.

Or, make the first two rounds more like what they did on Genius Junior; two minutes - one player is asked a question; if correct, the next player on the team is asked the next question, but if incorrect, the next player has to try to answer the same question, and a question isn't changed until either answered correctly or all three players on the team miss.

Your First Impression depended on celebrities. Could GSN's numbers pull any weighty celebs to stop by? According to Monty's book, the show just barely squeaked by every renewal period for two and a half years until finally letting it drop. None of the other shows reached 26 weeks. I liked Chain Letter, but you'd need player categories that have a very wide list of subjects. Unlike most category games, Chain Letter called for contestants to come up with an answer where the first letter of the new answer has to be the same as the LAST letter of the previous answer (category: vegetables. Potato-Okra-Asparagus-Snow peas-Spinach - etc, etc). Makes one wonder how long it could go before repeating categories. My four cents, anyway... (due to inflationary trends)
