There are two other GT shows from the 70s GSN hasn't aired any episodes of(besides Narz Concentration and syndie TPIR for reasons we already know): the 1977-78 weekly syndie version of Tattletales and the Summer 1976 CBS primetime run of IGAS


It is believed that GSN actually has the weekly "Tattletales", but couldn't air it due to celebrity clearances.  According to old TVGuide listings, Bob Newhart was a frequent guest on it, and it's believed either he or his wife Ginny has requested those episodes not to be seen again.  GSN probably figured it wasn't worth touching it considering how few episodes of the weekly version were produced (which is too bad, because I've never seen that version).

As for the '76 "I've Got a Secret", altough there is one episode of it in the trade curcuit, the four-episode series is another that is MIA.

Bob Newhart was seen on some of the nighttime Marshall HS episodes aired on GSN in 2002-03, so it could have been Ginny deciding she didn't want the episodes aired. Some weeks of daytime Tattletales from both runs featured the Newharts, and those weeks too were skipped over.

I've gotta ask...have either of the Newharts given a reason why they don't want these aired?

Pure speculation...but considering the sometimes personal subject matter that was discussed on "Tattletales", maybe they didn't want that to be brought up again.  The ban must have been "all or nothing", because a week of "Super Password" they appeared on has never aired on GSN either.

I hear the people who worked on that show were complete hacks. ;)

Going off topic a bit, G-T produced other shows in different categories, like drama, variety and talk.  Are these shows intact as well?

I forgot to ask this question, how many episodes of the nighttime version of Tattletales exist?  Also was this a 5-a-night strip program or a weekly version like the previous nighttime G-T shows at the time.  Also were the rules different in this version?

Could it be possible that Dick Martin has refused permission to re-air it?

My impression from watching Dick Martin is that he wouldn't mind too much. Heck,  GSN showed "Monday Night Quarterback" didn't they?
Let's Make a Deal was the first show to air on Buzzr. 6/1/15 8PM.

True.

The problem is, it shouldn't be erased, at least by the network, as there's no evidence that NBC erased anything after April 1978, over a year before the premiere of "Mindreaders".

Some would argue that "Time Machine" SHOULD have been, though... :)

The western shows Branded and The Rebel, which I believe GT were connected with, should still be around, having aired in reruns as recently as the late 80s/early 90s on CBN/FAM and WABC-NY late nights.

This was a weekly syndie, so more than likely 39 shows were done of it for the 1977-78 season. The shows may well exist, but GSN has never aired them.

Which answers about 1/4th of the mans question.  AFAIK, the rule structure was the same, as well as the payouts. I'd be happy to be proven wrong.
