a "get in touch with Game Show Network" bumper.

A significant number of Fremantle's copies of episodes come from GSN ca. the 1990s to early 2000s - and back in the day, those promos were dubbed over plugs that GSN didn't air on the master tape.
It was reported that during the big dubbing project in the mid-90s, two copies of each tape were made - one for GSN and one for the Goodson archives. I guess GSN returned their tapes at some point, but the question is why are they using those and not their own copies which should be unaltered.

This Monday, Classic Concentration is new to Buzzr again, picking up with episode 784. I'm sure I've said it before, but I never would have predicted it would be such a runaway success -- good on Buzzr for giving it a chance back in 2018.

Press Your Luck also resumes new-to-Buzzr episodes this Monday, picking up with episode 456. I know they've been seen before, but I'm watching the Buzzr run with fresh eyes, so that makes me a happy camper.

Iíve said this before, but Iíve seen a few people from the Gen-X/millennial generations bring up CC on social media and how it took them back to their childhood. I dunno what kinda metrics Buzzr uses, but I imagine the numbers and impressions look good for we 80s and 90s babies.

My guess is it's a marathon celebrating the Oscars, which are on 3/12. A lot of the celebrity-type shows have Oscar winners. The Super Password has Academy member Leonard Maltin. One of the TTTTs has Sacheen Littlefeather (who infamously declined Marlon Brando's Oscar for him one year) and the O'Hurley TTTT has an accountant who knows the Oscar winners ahead of time.

Makes a bunch more sense. Thanks!

This Sunday (2/26) from 8:00 PM-12:00 AM ET, Buzzr is running a four hour marathon of rarities and not-so rarities in celebration of Black History Month.

8:00 PM: TTTT '90 (a Lynn Swann-hosted episode, number unknown)
8:30 PM: WML '71 (Mystery Guest: Odetta)
9:00 PM: IGAS '66 (OAD 10/17/66, jazz bagpipist Rufus Harley is a contestant)
9:30 PM: WML '74 (Mystery Guest: Ruby Dee)
10:00 PM: Super Password '88 (OAD week of 4/25-29/88, Scoey Mitchell and a big endgame win)
10:30 PM: Beat the Clock '71 (Guest: Cab Calloway)
11:00 PM: Family Feud [SYN] '85 ('84 US Olympians week w/Evelyn Ashford)
11:30 PM: Body Language '85 (one of two weeks with Kim Fields)

If memory serves me right, this is the first time Buzzr has touched Swann TTTT or Narz Beat The Clock and one of the few times they've delved into Allen-era IGAS or Bruner-era WML.

They've aired Swann's version during Betty Christmas marathons, but I think your assertion's applicable to Elliott's tenure unless I missed it.
Correct about Narz BtC, and I'd hope the recent dust-off of the '70s BtC leads to a spot on the regular lineup.

The clip in the promo is from Week 14 (Jay Johnstone/ Vicki Lawrence(-Schultz)/Orson/Kitty) so it's probably a new-to-Buzzr episode.

Not surprising when it has its own channel on Roku and other platforms

Say, why are people on the buzzr page begging for TPIR when it can be easily found on many streaming services?

Thanks, Greg! Fixed my post.
