Didn't the nighttime Price Is Right end before the fall 1979 season started? If so, it's still an impressive 43 half-hours.

Nighttime "Price is Right" was on from 1972-80, so 1979-80 was its final season.

Turning to my trusty TV Guide collection, WCBS had NTPIR at 7:30 Saturday until June of 81.  It had switched from WNBC in the fall of 79.  Of course, it's possible Viacom ended production before that and Channel 2 was running encore telecasts.  Veering away from G-T, but interesting nonetheless, the TVG also has WABC showing Hollywood Squares in access in 81---with Wally Cox and Charley Weaver among the panelists.

That was actually quite normal back then.  "Match Game" and (the non-GT) "Newlywed Game" were two other shows that stayed in syndication long after the production stopped.  "Match Game" was still listed in TVGuides as late as the '83-84 season, and "Newlywed Game" carried on until about '82, before it disappeared for a couple of years.  In fall 1984, "Dating" and "Newlywed" reruns were re-syndicated, which led to newer versions a year or two later.

Would this explain why I seem to remember "Match Game" airing mornings on WPVI in Philly in '83 or '84? After the 'official' run ended?

That almost has to be the case -- I've been lurking/posting on ATGS et al. for seven or eight years, and I've never seen a reference to the show being in production beyond 1980.

WPVI aired the SYndie MG from June 30 1980-September 10 1982 during its original run, but never aired syndicated reruns of it which aired on some stations as late as 1986(KDKA in 1983 and WPXI in 1985-86 in Pittsburgh both aired reruns of MG Syndie)

Other stations that aired syndie MG reruns included:
WVIT (Ch. 30), Hartford (had it for the 82-83 season, possibly also 83-84)
WNEV (Ch. 7), Boston (may have had it as late as 85)
KRLD (Ch. 33), Dallas-Ft. Worth (which was quite generous to GS fans, also airing reruns of the '70s Treasure Hunt and syndie DG around that same time...they had it until at least 84)
WSB (Ch. 2), Atlanta (they had it until 86)

I was at a taping of nighttime TPIR in December 1979 to discuss game ideas with Frank Wayne, so it ran at least until some time in 1980.

Good enough for me. Guess my "encyclopedia" contains a no-no.

Here in NY, WPIX (Ch. 11) carried NG reruns, while WOR (Ch. 9), ironically the station that originally carried the late 70s DG when it orig. aired, got said show.

My first memory of the 70s NG? During the credits to one ep, I remember a camera shot ANOTHER cameraman who was shooting the credits as they ran across the board...only on a Barris show, folks. :-)

I believe that show has been run by GSN.  I remember another episode where the full credit roll ran the correct way, got to the final "Chuck Barris Production" slide, then ran backwards, all the way back to the "Exective Producer...Chuck Barris" slide, which was usually the first credit shown.  They had a lot of time to fill that show so I guess they figured, why not?

For what it's worth, there is a copy of the nighttime "Price" in the trade curcuit that was taped March 12th, 1980.  It is widely believed to be the last nighttime show.

WOR aired a 70s syndie DG-NG rerun block in 1984-85, in afternoons after TJW and TTD, but WPXI did air them for a brief period in 1983-84.
