Could "Whammy!" replace TPIR
« on: November 21, 2004, 01:27:12 PM »
I was just thinking that "Whammy!: The All-New Press Your Luck" might be a solid property for CBS to pick up for the TPIR slot, paired with reruns of TPIR from 1972-1975 before it expanded to an hour, if there is no way for the current TPIR to continue after Bob leaves.  What do you others think?

Not gonna happen.

Either "TPIR" continues after Barker leaves or the hour goes back to the stations.  I honestly don't think there are any other alternatives.

That has just as good a chance as Elimidate has replacing TPiR.  Saying Whammy is a solid pickup is a bad idea because, last time I got the ratings, they were really bad, worse than Friend or Foe?.  And if we want to get into it, Whammy has a lot of things to work out if it hypothetically was to take the place.  I can't believe I even made that hypothetical since that's the most inane idea I've ever heard, game show wise.

They could replace TPIR with Mindreaders. Or not.

Actually, even though the CBS daytime lineup (the afternoon part) has remained unchanged for almost 18 years, I could see this happening once TPiR goes off the air (all times EST)

11am - B&B, expanded to an hour (Bill Bell has wanted this for years).
12pm to 1pm - local programming
1pm - Y&R

The rest of the schedule (ATWT @ 2pm, GL @ 3pm) remains unchangd.

Ya know, I usually try to be at least reasonably polite, but this is one of the stupidest ideas I've ever heard.

No.

Per Steve Beverly, it's "Plinko!, The All-New Price is Right"

Whammy! sucks. Period.

Enjoy lots and lots of backstage TPIR photos and other fun stuff here. And yes, I did park in Syd Vinnedge's parking spot at CBS

An hour block for TPiR reruns and PYL reruns would be really nice, but it'd never happen.

Most likely: CBS will snooker its affils into a new talk show hosted by either a sitcom has-been or someone nobody's ever heard of. Or Claudia Jordan.

My gut feeling is that the eventual replacement will be encore broadcasts of "Cold Case."
Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.

Would be the first daytime reruns since "Designing Women", also on CBS of course. That would be something......

I'd lean more towards CBS giving the 11 AM hour back to the affiliates if the show is shelved after Bob leaves. Whatever they put in there will more likely than not tank.
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

To those in the know: Is the future of TPIR post-Barker a big topic of discussion among the TPIR staff? G-d knows it's been as big a topic of discussion as any in the 11 years of this online community.
