Looks to be some changes afoot starting the week of March 13 to the weekday schedule, per Zap2It and TV Passport:

9am hour - CS replaced by Body Language
8pm hour -Newlywed Game replaced by TTTT
9pm-11pm - Super Password replaced by Newlywed Game
If that schedule is correct, Supermarket Sweep is off the lineup as well, replaced with an hour of Super Password.

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?

Someone's going to say the quiet part out loud

Nothing quite like 2 solid hours of The Newlywed Game each primetime evening.  Joy.

Funny, wasn't GSN stripping the heck out of the Newlywed Game years ago too?

The original, yes. Then Sherrys version was on that Tuesday night block 2011 or thereabouts

Do we know which version of Truth will be airing in the primetime slot (assuming this news is true, of course)?

Not yet. But..I'm going to make a wild guess: 90s version in one slot, and O'Hurley's version in the other.
The 70's version just feels more suitable as a morning to midday offering with something more modern fitting into the evening, IMHO.
But we'll see...

I get where they’re coming from (I think). There’s probably some perceived prominence in having the show on a traditional TV network rather than just streaming. And let’s be honest, the ostensible target audience for BUZZR’s traditional channel is probably less adept at streaming as a whole. So it makes sense that some folks would still like to see Barker TPIR on BUZZR if they can ever clear up the remaining issues and make it happen.

Although, given they seem to be completely shifting Supermarket Sweep over to streaming, Fremantle probably feels it no longer makes good business sense to worry about it.

Welp, I done fouled that prediction up. TTTT will indeed be Moore beginning with episode 1693.

Wow! The Moore version of Truth in primetime? Yeah, I would've lost that bet, too. Has Buzzr ever aired Ep. 1693 before?

Yes.  They've gotten as far as 1791.

The BL and SP eps are ones they've shown before (BL starts at 247--5/23/85, SP also in 1985).

And CC ends new to us episodes this Friday (813 and 814--7/26-27/90).  P+ ends new-to-Buzzr eps next Friday (438 and 441--9/12, 17/80).

There are a few new P+ episodes after that. For some reason when Betty White Christmas preempted the normal slot last December, they skipped a handful of episodes, so they're coming back around to those.

Gotcha.  So those are starting with 375 (6/16/80).  But, yes, after 441 they're not going forward for at least a little while (Buzzr sked only goes up to the early morning of 3/27/23).

And after they get through those eps, they go back to the Cullen-hosted weeks (starting at 335--end of Uncle Bill's first week).

Looks like they will get further--1791 and 1792 are both scheduled to air 3/27.
