TPIR and GSN

We talked about this last year, Fremantle doesn't own TPIR anymore, it's CBS is now owning TPIR. Now after CBS gives up on showing TPIR, GSN could still get some interest in showing the back episodes because we've read about Rich Cronin's interview in bringing back TPIR Classics back in July of last year and he said they'll bring it back but again, CBS is holding on to TPIR reruns until they chose to give it back(which is a false statement until around 2007).

Everyone in the room is now stupider for having read that.  I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

Even if TPIR ended this year, and ended up with all 33 seasons being bought by GSN. Knowing them, they'd pull a WOF on us and air like Season 32 year over and over and over.

I believe a Brit named Greg Lyle is FremantleMedia North America's chief these days.  Syd was pushed into consultant limbo about the time Pearson bowed out and sold their share to RTL.  In a rare showing of insight by the Perfesser, he could probably also be called informally "Fremantle VP-in-charge-of-Barker."

Well, you're right, except for the fact that his name is David Lyle, he's from Australia, and he hasn't been with Fremantle since February.

Tom Gutteridge ("Paradise Hotel") is the new head honcho.

Boy, when you're not paying any attention...  :)

And no wonder Amanda Byram got "The Swan" gig (of course, A. Smith is the U.S. showrunner company for both shows...).

And BTW, TPIR is a Goodson/Todman and/or a Goodson show so it can be aired in multiple years everyday.

This is for IrisMason ONLY.

May I ask the question that most people here want to know...

Are you disabled? Because there has got to be an honest reason for your postings. And I just don't believe that you're like AdamJK, Karlberg, Witch, Bandit, Henke and the rest.

Only the Nicholson-Muir and Fishman-Freer libraries have licensing agreements like that.

And I still believe that Barker doesn't want those shows where he's talking to Dian to be seen anywhere, even if they were 20 to 25 years ago.
Is there any basis for this or is it pure speculation?

Well, GSN showed many shows with Barker and Parkinson back when they had TPIR before, and he didn't seem to mind. In fact, it was more controversial back in 1996-2000 than it is now (in my opinion), so why would he mind now?

Think about it...
