Game TV April 4 - Nice additions!
« on: March 03, 2023, 02:35:50 PM »
Oh, how sweet this lineup looks. Look at 1PM & 4:30 ;D

One of the programming staff mentioned some time ago that they were looking to acquire Wink's TTD, but it looks like they're even diving into more of the B&E library!
It doesn't say "S8" for TTD like it used to, but we'll see. BTB is enough to for me be excited about, frankly.

I'd like Barry too alongside it, but....oh what the hey why nitpick?  This is awesome news!!

Moreso if the Buzzr/GameTV deal is in play, as there's always a slight chance to get BTB on there. 

BTC '79?  Perhaps we'll finally get closure on the series finale...if you know, you know...
I'm a pacifist, and even I would like to see a little more action.

They've been airing BTC79 for a few months now and they've only shown the ones converted for Buzzr. In fact, they've never shown any classic Fremantle shows that hadn't already been converted for Buzzr. Probably cheaper that way.

I imagine Baldwin's MG at 2:30pm is an error because of 1) Alec's legal situation and 2) GameTV listing it as a half-hour show.

Break the Bank?  Wow - this is surprising news.  Hopefully they'll get to episodes that never aired on GSN.  Some of their leases have been quite small, but I can't wait to see this one!

I do remember that the last time somebody (GSN?) aired it, it stopped on the Monday of the final week.

I emailed GameTV and they replied saying it will be season 2 of Tic Tac Dough (1979-80) which means they'll eventually get to Thom McKee.

Not immediately obviously, even with a VPN, near as I can tell.

I'm playing the old "Let's pray some of our Canadian friends will record Break The Bank & post those episodes on a video-sharing site" game myself.

Not legally. There are a few paid IPTV services that include GameTV in their offerings, but I'm not going to risk linking to any here.

Just a quick note to say that after airing the premiere episode of Break the Bank on April 3rd, today they skipped to the third episode.  Since GSN did the same thing when they ran the show in the late '90s, it's probably safe to assume that the second episode is 'missing".

I think there are a few missing. In the inventory file that leaked some years ago, it shows a total of 97 episodes available. If the episode guide is accurate, there should be 104 with 74 ABC & 30 syndicated.

I've always questioned the 30 syndicated.  I'd be willing to bet there were only 24.  I made hand-written records of game shows back then and we had reruns that started in our area in March 1977.  I remember at the time counting 23 (based on my records) before the reruns started.  I missed one when we were away, which was never repeated as the show was dropped in July 1977.  GSN ran the first four shows and there were two done with each panel (they changed the seats a bit between the tapings).  Some celebrities appeared on more than one panel.

In looking over old TV Guide listings (ours' and quite a few out of town), I can only find panels for 24 shows.  If there were 30, we didn't get all of them on our station (WKBW).

I can't remember in what GSN showed us if there was anything else missing or not.  They aired most of the first six weeks before they dropped the show.  We'll have to see how far GameTV gets in the run and if there's any more missing shows.  I'd love for them to show the Barry episodes after the Kennedy ones are done - if there's fewer than 100 that would still make for a nice little run - but I wouldn't count on it.  Some of GameTV's leases have been quite small.

Not sure if GSN skipped N1 or I just don't have a copy of that version, but I DO have the master of N1 (as well as N19) and while the panel matches a GSN ep I have, the contestants don't. (did GSN run five?), and can obviously confirm at least 19 shows were definitely produced.

If they ran any eps I'm missing here, they can be added to the tally, but I have record of:

Slated: N1: (VTR 7/17/76): Clifton Davis, Elena Verdugo, Jaye P. Morgan, William Conrad, Joey Bishop, Anson Williams, Barbara Eden, Hermione Baddeley, and Pat Morita; Debbie vs. Jeffrey

GSN (Dark Period): Same panel as above; Herlinda vs. David

GSN (Dark Period): Abe Vigoda, William Conrad, Lee Meriwether, Barbara Eden, Joey Bishop, Bob Crane, Jaye P Morgan, Bill Cullen, Anson Williams; Allison vs. Scott

GSN (Dark Period); Same panel as above, Elaine vs. Carl

GSN (late 1999 or 2000): Nipsey Russell, Shelley Winters, Jan Murray, Pearl Bailey, Bob Barker, Vicki Lawrence, Orson Bean, Anne Meara, Jimmie Walker; Kaye vs. Dwayne (possibly N20? because..)

Slated N19 (VTR 8/8/76): Same panel as above: Sandy Lee vs. Richard
