Complete speculation on my part, but I'd be willing to bet that Stephen shows up in the next segment following a contestant losing their fifth and final Gauntlet, so as not to "interrupt" someone else's run.
Or after someone wins the Gauntlet.
Not unless somebody felt like explaining why they gave away $50,000 in one show.

I am sure they are working to fit him back in as soon as possible -- regardless of their budget.  They're not gonna have Stephen on speed dial and during a taping session, call him at home and say, "Hey, we haven't given the 25K lately and the latest champ lost their 5th Gauntlet..can you get down to CBS in 30 minutes for the next taping?"

Technically, if they start any episode with a Gauntlet Run and have a two round sweep with the new players, they would end the ep with a second Gauntlet run as we have already seen...Ergo SOME episodes already have the potential of shelling out over $50k in a single episode.

It's happened at least once before: Episode 27 (5/30/79 approx; portions on YouTube) has someone winning the Gauntlet in segment 1, then Carrie sweeps Gene, then Carrie wins the Gauntlet in segment 4.

So Leonard was a five-time turkey.  Yet Tom promised two new contestants next episode.  I know, plans change sometimes.
I'm a pacifist, and even I would like to see a little more action.

Well regardless of whether or not Stephen shows up on the next episode, there will be two new contestants at some point.  So he wasn't lying, technically....

IIRC, when Stephen returned to pick up where he left off, it was NOT at the start of an episode.  It likely occurred during the second half of an episode as I don't think the first two segments would have had back-to-back Gauntlets and one celeb doesn't play for the first 10-15 minutes of the show.

Either Supermarket Sweep is in new-to-Buzzr episodes, or I missed them the first time around. The network is now airing season seven, although I seem to remember season six cutting off in the middle of a tournament of some kind. Did Buzzr ever convert the rest of those episodes (and I missed them) or are they skipping ahead?

Old news, but Bob Eubanks recorded some Newlywed Game promos and "coming up" bumpers for Buzzr. I like when the network brings hosts in to promote the shows.

Which they are, they started Monday, March 14th.

They skipped the final three shows of Season 6 (furthest they went was 1127).

The Cullen Price episode airing right now on Buzzr (10/12/60) has the nighttime version's first Home Viewer Sweepstakes. Last week's episodes apparently had the last Home Viewer Showcase.

Unfortunately, we won't see the results of either (unless those episodes have previously aired on GSN or Buzzr).

Wasn't the first TPIR Home Viewer Sweepstakes the one where they separated the cards by state?

Yes, and then they switched to the five drums. I saw one of the original format for the first time the other day and was amused at how much it looked like a giant wall of tumble dryers.
