That's not fresh Whew!  Minus skipped episodes, the end of the civilian run is #133.

Oops. Thanks for the clarification, my own Whew! folder ended with #119...but then I just a found a number of forgotten uncatalogued ones.
Still misfiling entries after 25 years, what can I say ;D

According to this thread on Facebook, it looks like Buzzr is moving up the first day of the Betty White marathon to Saturday 1/8, but the other two days will remain on Sunday 1/16 and Monday 1/17.

Great Match Game tribute to Betty on 1/8. Included was an episode of the 60s MG with an all-star panel including Betty and an ep of MG '90 with Betty in Brett's seat on the upper tier.

Wouldn’t this be the first time MG90 has been on Buzzr? I don’t remember it being on before…
Indeed.

Post-MG portion of the programming stunt/tribute, I am reaffirmed in my feelings that while it does still have flaws, and while my ranking is influenced by how much I dislike the 70s version, especially the CBS run - MG90 is still my absolute favorite version of the show (with the current reboot a distant 2nd). And that of all the game shows to launch in 1990-91 and fail within 12 months, MG90 was easily the most underrated.

If Buzzr is going to turn six and a half hours (5.5 hours of 7x and PM plus the MG half of the two MGHSH airings) of their schedule over to the show, it'd be really nice if a little of that time went to this IMO. Way back in the day, GSN used to pair the daily syndicated early 80s version with MG90 late morning -  it might be interesting if Buzzr wanted to recreate that Noon (9a ET) hour where they have MG74 currently. (the daily syndicated run hasn't been aired regularly on the channel either, I don't believe)

I like the 7x version the best despite it being overplayed.  It is what it is.  (my one quirk is having a fondness for the post-Dawson eps as that was the MG I grew up with, blue set and Star Wheel and all) 

90-91 would come in second.  I get it...this time around, Goodson was emphasizing the "Game" part more but it was still fun.  And new wrinkles aside it stuck to the CBS version's format. 

98 and 2016/whatever are tied for last.  I guess I'd put the latter a tick ahead for at least returning to looking like the original and all that.  But it suffers from Steve-Harvey-Feud-itis.  Amongst other things.   (And unlike the other versions, none of the components that made it work were around...no Gene, Brett, Charles, etc.) 

Oh yeah, the MG half of MG/HS.  Ermmmmmmm....maybe on the same tier as MG90.  Not the same for many reasons, but Gene was there and still had his moments.  And honestly some of the celebs they ended up using weren't too bad.  Others were stinkers, sure, but....

I feel adding MG/HS helped a little just to get a then-rarely-seen version of the show.  Adding Shafer would be more of the same.  If they must have loads of MG there, it would still feel like a variety at least.
I'm a pacifist, and even I would like to see a little more action.

According to a press release, there will be a Black History Month marathon on 2/26 from 4-8pm Eastern. The shows will feature appearances by Sammy Davis, Jr, The Supremes, Berry Gordy, Pearl Bailey, Jesse Owens, Dionne Warwick, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Bill Melton of the Tuskegee Airmen.

They're also posting vignettes to social media about them throughout the month. They've already posted the Sammy Davis Jr. one.

I guess it would be too much to ask for an episode of "Musical Chairs" (with the first Black game show host, Adam Wade).

Well, if you call finding out if the episodes still exist, who currently owns the rights, and trying to get clearance rights for the songs used too much to ask, then...

At least they did a social media short about Adam Wade and showed a clip of him on Tattletales.

Rather interesting episode with the test Celebrity format in place.

So are we establishing then that the guide that was posted here was screwed up?
