BUZZR's Betty White tribute schedule (1/17/22)
« on: January 17, 2022, 08:23:35 AM »
Would anyone here know what the original air dates are for the shows airing in today's of the chronological Betty White marathon (1/17/22...what would've been her 100th birthday)? I think someone posted it elsewhere on the forum, but I can't seem to find it.

Big thank you in advance for someone who can track it down for me!

Don't have enough concrete info about the Tattletales ones to nail airdates to those, and I'm making an educated guess on the Whew! shows, but they should be fairly close.

I'm guessing observations about the marathon are okay to put here.

I haven't seen Celebrity Whew in awhile....having done so, the main caveat is leaving half your fate to another person now.  Rest of the show is quality as always.  I got a fellow GS fan who didn't know of the show to get into it when I reminded him about the marathon.

Wonder why neither of her Million Dollar Password episodes were on the PW day of the tribute, as it were?

I hadn't seen the TTTT 67_1419 and thought it was a gem.  I kept waiting for Betty, and then there she was.  (not spoiling for anyone who hasn't seen it yet).

Speculation I shared with some board members...

I have noticed a trend that whenever BUZZR airs something in a special, non-normal manner like Lost and Found and the like, those shows are out of the rotation.  Examples of shows which haven't rerun on BUZZR for this reason are episodes 2-5 of MGHS, the MGHS from St. Elsewhere week which aired during Lost and Found in 2019, episodes 1, 2, and 4-7 of Whew!, and episode 127 of Whew! which was on Lost and Found this past September.  Did Betty's MDP air on Saturday nights over this past summer?  If so, there might be your reason.

Echoing Chris, the TTTTs from the late 60s were a nice treat, particularly the 1967 episode.  Same with presumably the strongest 4/5 of the final week of Super Password.

It's possible. I forgot that MDPW was in the weekend rotation for awhile.  Still, would have been a nice addition to remind viewers that BW did do every version of Password (well, the ones they have the tapes to...)

And the first week of MG/HS WAS in regular rotation at least once.  Barring the premiere of course, and there's been speculation as to why.  Besides the marathon thing, those eps. threw off the commercial timing for Buzzr since they kept all the fee plugs intact. 

Back to Celebrity Whew! ...another question or two...

1) I don't think they did it on the eps. in the marathon, but were there any switching partners rules like between games/rounds?

2) Were the teams allowed any time to discuss strategy off camera or otherwise?  I am thinking particularly with blocking.

As best as I could tell, the only time you'd switch partners was between matches.

Aha.  Probably hard to tell as I only saw the first episode and well, someone won the $25,000 and they ended mid-game in the second half.  So like pre-1981 Password Plus, then.

On another note, TTTT90 was extremely well done despite its problems and def. belongs somewhere on the schedule, probably weekends.  (I can see that and MG90 somewhere on Sat and/or Sun)

Seconded. Could probably replace the Sunday afternoon MGHS, if they ever decide to ditch that.

Could I trouble someone to repost the Password day of the tribute's schedule?

Many thanks for the above! 

I'm somewhat surprised that no one has found occasion to run the outtake PW+ episode  on Buzzr yet.
