Couple more fresh entries the week of 1/24: Password Plus is picking up with #287, and Whew! goes onward with #121.
That's not fresh Whew!  Minus skipped episodes, the end of the civilian run is #133.

So are we establishing then that the guide that was posted here was screwed up?
Only screw-up I'm detecting was that there was no pre-emption on 10/3/79 (at least not at the network level), thus everything from #113 to #133 is listed one weekday later than it should be. As in, #133 (last non-celeb show) should be 11/2/79 and #134 (first celeb day) should be 11/5/79. [only pre-emptions that should be there are the Magazine ones]

Aha! So as a result the numbering is off and there is one more civilian show than you originally thought, is what you are saying? I've been using this to rename files I've been recording and that would explain discrepancies.

Gotcha gotcha. Easy enough to fix my copy and I think I located my own naming discrepancy (and discovered I was missing an episode); question is whether I deleted the recording during this current reairing run. I don't think I have yet! (Just checked; nope, should be there!) Thanks!

Yes. There was a show (#113) on 10/3/79 that aired only in the West thanks to coverage of the Papal visit to New York. Episode numbers past that point should be increased by one. Last civilian is 133 (11/2/79) and first celebrity is 134 (11/5/79).

Evidently Classic Concentration has moved forward in its run, effective yesterday.

Is 12 seconds the most bonus time anyone's earned for the Gauntlet so far?

I cant imagine how you could top it. I guess $1,500 plus an assorted melange of blocks in a board won by your opponent, assuming your opponent lays down and you scamper up the right side twice.

March 7 to 14 is up on the schedule page...

* Now You See It is still fresh.
* Eubanks Card Sharks is still new.
* The 1pm hour of Classic Concentration continues onward, and hits the start of 1990 (and a random observation: it's ironic that show #666 would air the day after Christmas [12/26/89]).
* Not sure when, but Ludden Password Plus loops back to November 1979.
* Whew! goes on far enough that we should get all three of the "trial" celeb weeks, and the one week return of the normal format (so we SHOULD get Stephen Matthews' return trip during the week of March 1, if I'm counting right, and if the recollections out there are right), and onward into the "permanent" celeb era.
* While not strictly "new", the Darrell Garrison episodes of Sale of the Century turn up in the normal rotation for the first time, for anyone who missed them in November.
* Because of the weekend of March 12/13 being when we reset the clocks, there's no late Saturday repeat of To Tell The Truth, since that falls into the switchover point.

To my knowledge yes - I have seen 11 seconds a few times.

Some CW! thoughts, if I may...now that we've seen at least two weeks worth of eps. (what we got from the trial three weeks so far, plus the two Betty episodes)...

I still enjoy watching it.  I am sure the celebrity element will wear thin with me eventually, after the initial novelty of seeing those episodes again.  But I can totally see why the change did not work, as it rarely does.  (HAS there been a show to successfully add celebrities to their format in this way?)  First, if W! needed anything, it's not more rules to explain.  Second, the gameplay feels a bit more clunky as such.  Pyramid and Password are the two player simultaneous video games; CW! is playing Super Mario Bros. 3 and having to alternate turns.  I can say giving up half your fate to another (celebrity) player is not an unusual feature on game shows, but still, it feels more glaring on this show to have the celeb and player on two different pages.  Especially with blocking and running the Gauntlet. 

The Carol Wayne/C.J. Gauntlet is a prime example of the latter.

And is it me, or have they watered down the bloopers?  I find a lot of $50 and Gauntlet questions seem to be much easier.
I'm a pacifist, and even I would like to see a little more action.

During the Gauntlet win drought, when I would play along I would average 4-6 correct answers.  In the last week and a half, I have been averaging 7-9 with a couple of personal wins.  I wonder if CBS execs said to ease the difficulty level a bit.

Exactly. #112 was pre-empted in the West by JPII's speech to the UN General Assembly, and #113 may have been pre-empted in the East by JPII's visit to Philadelphia, if I'm not mistaken.

Could've been worse--NBC pre-empted it and SCRABBLE on Xmas Day for a Jane Pauley-hosted Hope Of Christmas show.

Of course, NBC usually pre-empted that hour every Xmas Day, so without the pre-emptions for that and Wimbledon 666 would've aired earlier in the month.  :)

I am now debating whether Celebrity Whew! or syndicated Match Game was butchered more by editing for broadcast...
