Weakest Link is going Interactive according to Steve Beverly's site. It all sounds good to me. I do wish GSN picked up the Regis version of Millionaire.

Same here.  It would be great to see those shows again.

Whoa whoa whoa. How many episodes of Twenty-One were made? A dozen? Tops?

Hmm. Nineteen, according to the other post. As a marathon. Well, okay. I still have doubts.

 Being Weakest Link and Lingo are both on GSN, would it be safe to say that Phil Gurin (who produced/-es) all three would have something to do with this acquisition?

Not only do you have the problem of the limited nature of \"Twenty One\", you also have the fact that Pax ran that mofo into the ground a few years back in reruns.

NBC.  The company that sold the prime time \"TWL\" package to GSN.

I'm not too upset about this. I LOVED 21 and thought it should stay around for awhile. Let's just hop that it doesn't get played frequently, as there are only 19 eps. of it.

Well, I'm happy that Lingo was picked up for another season. As for Twenty-One, Well, the First Ep. was OK, but after that it was a train wreck. As for the Weakest Link Marathon, I'm not that impressed. It does now support Interactive play, so that will make the Interactive game fans happy I guess...

 Yet they still are hoarding Concentration *shrugs*

Any chance that the BBC TWL will ever see the light of day here?  Would love to have seen the EastEnders special where Wendy Richard gets to the finals :-)

I just wanna say that this 21 pick-up makes me believe that think Phil Gurin is getting way too much influence within GSN.  You just know he was a catalyst behind this, and it's REALLY starting to irk me that programming choices are being made in this way.

Yeah, I know, I'm a hopeless idealist.  Sue me.

Then there's Bob Boden getting royalties off of showing Greed over and over again...

But at any rate, it looks like Twenty-One's about as close as we're getting to a B&E show back on GSN.

 I too have thought about that. What can we do? I am glad to see \"Twenty-One\" again (I never caught the PAX re-runs) but I hope it is not a long term renewal.

I'm of the opinion that GSN just wants recent reruns, I don't think it is because certain people get royalties.  Wouldn't \"Think Twice\" be on the sked if there were some ulterior motive?
Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.

Hey, it could be worse: They might bring back a Fleming-era original, like AN3aC. ;)

(What's funny is that AN3aC was a Gurin product...)
