Yes, can't judge...all ideas are valid? Nah..suggesting that a show that didn't work on cable would work on a network is a bad idea.

Ya gotta call them as you see them.

Of course, CBS could just go back to reruns of "The Beverly Hillbillies".


Naahh..."I Love Lucy" would probably get better ratings :)

Ian, that idea is not too far fetched.  Around 1999 or so, our local CBS affil, had some syndicated show at 9am that ended in mid-season, so the station plugged in "ILL" and "Andy Griffith" b&w reruns as a stop gap that turned out to run the balance of one season and into another.  It would be easy for CBS to go to the vaults and run these classic shows on the full network with a retro feel.  It would be just like the CBS daytime sked of the '60's.  BTW, be sure to watch the NBC presentation of the 1947 "Miracle on 34th Street" with John Payne and Natalie Wood on Thanksgiving day at 2 eastern in glorious black and white.  Everything old is new again.  But it has to be reeeely old to be hip.  Having said all that, if "Whammy" were to reappear on CBS, I would think it would be new production, with the mistakes of the GSN version corrected, rather than reruns of a cable show on the Tiffany network.
Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.

That begs another question then:  since those shows have long been syndicated, how hard would it be if CBS wanted to pick up reruns again?  I know that they aired some "classic" "All in the Family" episodes in prime time about 10 years ago, but I wonder what the logistics are of running repeats of something that local stations also have rights to.

"I Love Lucy" and "Andy Griffith" are two that puzzle me:  they're both on TVLand, *and* on local stations.  It used to be that once something went on a national cable channel, it disappeared from local stations.

Lucille Ball was a frequent player on "Password Plus" in the late '70s.

Actually, I hear that Pat Finn is rehearsing for "Definitions...The All New Joker's Wild" which is to be paired up with "Rappin...The All New Tic Tac Dough" with Snoop Patrick Wayne.

I think the answer is demand.  Local stations want the shows, Viacom controls the shows and everyone is okay that the shows also run on cable.  Dual revenue stream for Viacom.

THIS is a problem.

Says you,  that the "GSN Version" had mistakes.

Says the producers, the programmers, and the staff of "Whammy!", that the show was fine.

And since THEY got a show on the air, and you didn't, what would stop a new version from being as retched as the current incarnation? It's their idea for a show, not yours.

[quote name=\'DjohnsonCB\' date=\'Nov 22 2004, 12:35 AM\']no more suggestions of any kind from this apparently clueless misfit whose efforts to bring his own brand of relevance to this group are now prove about as welcome as my 1990 plea to the CBS station I left behind to move here to pick up a couple of non-game syndies me and the entire market was missing then.  So long for now...

Waah.

The over/under on when he comes crawling back is officially set at 6:00P PDT. As usual, I am accepting all action, with a 5% rake on all payouts.

Getting way OT...

Speaking of everything old being new again, one of our local stations, WPIX 11 (aka WB11) is showing a block of '70s sitcoms on Saturday prime time.  On WPIX's website, they have a page for this block that even uses the "11 Alive" logo from the '70s and has an online version of "TV PIXXX" (also called "TV POW" elsewhere, remember that?)  They've also brought back the Yule Log since 2001 on Christmas Day, and a few years back did a retrospective on a pretty famous NY kids' show, The Magic Garden.
