BUZZR Q1 2024
« on: December 16, 2023, 06:49:42 PM »
New year, new thread.

Starting January 13, 2024, BUZZR will be airing episodes of (presumably just The All New) Let's Make a Deal, in honor of the show's 60th birthday.  The online promo shows just All New episodes.

And on 1/15/24, new-to-BUZZR CLASSIC CONCENTRATIONs emerge (we'll get into 1991).  But the same way they did it before--three new eps on Monday (12/27,28,31/90), Tuesday (1/2-4/91) and Wednesday (1/7-9/91), one on Thursday (1/10/91).  Only that week has cleared, so we'll see how far into 1991 they go.

Starting January 13, 2024, BUZZR will be airing episodes of (presumably just The All New) Let's Make a Deal, in honor of the show's 60th birthday.  The online promo shows just All New episodes.

Exclusively the 80s run for now. These shows (starting with show 88) ran eons ago when the network launched, but haven't been part of the rotation since the earliest days of Buzzr's existence. If this lasts into early February, we'll get the week of shows with Geoff Edwards hosting (shows 130-134).

The change is part of a broader schedule change taking effect this Saturday:

Weekdays: 11a ET: Perry CS from '79 swaps in for Eubanks for the hour. (edit: Eubanks was quickly restored at 11a, with Perry remaining at 11:30)

Weekdays: 12p: Press Your Luck (1985) returns to weekdays (after being weekends only briefly), in place of Match Game 79

7 days per week:
Split Second w/ Monty Hall runs for an hour on the schedule at 1pm (starting from the show numbered 1 for the US market, which was the 19th show produced overall). They made it through about 80 episodes when the show was on the network previously.  This replaces Tattletales on weekdays and Temptation (2007) on weekends.

An hour of 80s Let's Make a Deal (starting with show #88, see above) takes over at 2pm and on weekdays only these episodes also take over for the existing 11pm time period. Replaces Password Plus on weekdays and Sale of the Century on weekends.

Additionally, Tattletales goes in 7 days per week at 9PM replacing an hour of Newlywed Game.

Lastly, Weekends Only: Password Plus from 1981 for an hour from 7PM-8PM (replacing the aforementioned Tattletales)

In addition to Buzzr having already largely reverted to Eubanks CS on weekday mornings as of a couple weeks ago, starting this weekend, Temptation '07 and Sale from '88 return to their previous weekend slots. Split Second and 80s LMaD continue on weekdays, with Geoff Edwards' five episodes (130-134) airing the full hour on 2/5 and 2/6 and the first of the two shows on 2/7.

Weekend primetime in February (7pm-Midnight ET) will be marathons themed around Black History Month. I am not even about to try to list out data for every episode here. When B&W shows air in clusters of three they'll air in 40 minute slots; by themselves in 30 minute slots.:
2/3 is three episodes of Narz-era Beat the Clock (476-478), three episodes of Monty Hall era BTC with Roxie Roker as one of the celebs (39-41), plus an ep of TTTT from '65 and two eps of Steve Allen CBS IGAS.
2/4 has an episode of nighttime Password from 1963, two episodes of the syndicated WML, an episode of Tattletales from '75, a Dawson Feud from '79, and a week of shows from the Combs syndicated Feud from '89.
2/10 has two additional syndie WMLs from 1970/74, a TTTT '80 episode with Rosa Parks, a 1990 episode, two 1976 Tattletales eps, a WML from 1958, another Password from '63, and a TTTT from '60
2/11 has an entire week of Tattletales from 1983, four Super Password episodes from 1988, and a Password Plus from '79
2/17 has two syndie WML (1969/1972), a CBS show from 1956, followed by Lynn Swann's last seven episodes of TTTT 90 (104-110)
2/18 has a week of celeb specials from the nighttime Dawson run in '85 followed by a week of Tattletales from '75
(no schedule data yet for the final weekend, 2/24 and 2/25)

Kroeger-era Newlywed takes over primetime for three hours the week of 2/12 for Valentine's Day.

Additionally and exclusive on their Youtube channel, they will be posting one episode per day from a 1993 football celebrity special of Combs Feud (nighttime) this coming week.

two eps of Steve Allen CBS IGAS.

Can someone with access to the details tell me which two these are?  Buzzr has occasionally aired some shows that GSN has skipped, and I don't want to miss anything.
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.

Fairly confident that #67_0002 is with guest Pearl Bailey, and #66_0027 with Wilt Chamberlain.

Even though the Wilt Chamberlain episode would seemingly make more sense, the '66 episode is actually the 10/17/66 show with guest Lucille Ball. One of the earlier segments has a jazz musician named Rufus Harley who brought bagpipes into jazz and had put out a couple of albums. Buzzr's rerun the show before (last February).

(I hate the way the CBS-era panel shows are numbered in their scheduling system. Essentially just the episodes they have, taped in that year, numbered sequentially. Except for when they DO skip a number.)

67_002 should be the Pearl Bailey episode, however.

Yeah, for that to have been the Wilt Chamberlain episode would have been pretty remarkable, since that's one of the ones that's never been replayed.

Fortunately I've not needed to refer to their numbering system much because yeah, that would drive me up a wall.

Of course, that numbering tells me that they must not possess the episode that aired January 2, 1967, which is another one we've never gotten.

/Seriously, I'm into this stuff.

The Super Passwords airing on Feb. 11 are Apr. 25-29, 1988, with Susan Ruttan and Scoey Mitchell.

They're skipping over #919, 4/27/88, almost certainly because one of the passwords that day was "Oriental".

Interesting, because there was a January 1986 episode with Orson Bean that they aired this week - the password was "Chinese," and "Oriental" was given as a clue. There weren't any dated jokes surrounding the clue, so maybe it passed muster.

Yeah, I would think the word itself would not be a problem, but the vocal affectations and/or facial expressions used to convey it definitely might.

Now that said, there are multiple instances on LMAD that have aired on Buzzr where Monty has gone up to that line and even crossed it with both Asians and Native Americans.

Some of these are definitely repetitive. Both WML tonight with Owen's and Stokes have aired before. And the Swinging Sisters Feud week has too. I guess the 79 one is Sammy Davis Jr?

The frequently rerun Rosa Parks TTTT got a small mention on Jimmy Kimmel Live this past week (the usual "they made the real one stand up" line and "Hey it's Mr. Carlson from WKRP")

The schedule for the last two Black History Month-themed weekend days are out:

2/24: Two eps of Body Language from a week with Kim Fields and Todd Bridges, MG '77 886, MGHSH #14, and a full week of MG '90 from near the end of the run with Jimmie Walker on the panel.
2/25: A 1975 LMaD with Nipsey Russell (First time they've run 70s LMAD in eons, I think), 4 of the 5 Super Password '85 week with Nipsey and Pat Sajak, and an entire week from 1987 with Nichelle Nichols and Tom Kennedy.

Buzzr is airing some episodes of Tattletales with Bob and Ginnie Newhart at the moment. None of theirs have ever rerun on GSN or Buzzr before. There's no one Black on these shows though so I honestly have no idea why they're airing in the Black History Month marathon.
