Okay, I'm thinking if he's certain enough to post the freakin' episode numbers, that challenging him for his source is really kinda unnecessary, don't you?

I got the press release too.  I posted it at Buzzer.  I would have gotten it up sooner but I was out.

PRNewswire's got the release, as linked to above - though I question the purpose of a release stating "we're airing 2 old episodes of a couple of game shows at 3 AM".

Well that answers my question as to whether Beat the Clock is a Narz or Wood episode.  How long has it been since these versions have aired on GSN?

The "Password" is from the daytime repeat syndication package, so it's been aired before on GSN at least once not too many years ago.

The only time I've seen anything of the Jack Narz "BTC" was a glimpse of the opening in the titles of "Faux Pause" (from the half-season at the Little/Helen Hayes Theatre in NY, with the video guy changing the slide colors all psychedelic--far out) so if those shows have aired before, it's been pre-Dark Period, if any.

When GSN first went on the air they were airing the Narz "Beat the Clock" that was produced in Montreal.  By August 1995, they switched to the Gene Wood version, and as far as I can remember, never went back.

I have one Narz and one Wood ep each taped in 1997, and two Wood episodes from 1998 (I believe this was right after they got the G-T rights back).

I'm glad a few people will be able to fill in the gaps, but believe me, that show was not very good in either version.  Done on the ultra-cheap, and it was not comfortable to watch Gene Wood host.  It was fun to watch Tom Poston blatantly cheat and get away with it, though.

Agree with Curt...it was hard to get excited over "the big money" being $200. Even for 1970-whatever, it was painful.

Especially if the big money was $200 Canadian dollars.

I want to be sure the Bob Denver shows are going to be on early SATURDAY and not early Friday.  At the GSN site they mention Friday and their grid makes no mention of Password after BTC either day.

I hope the BTC show is a Narz with the 1970-style set.  Back in broadcast TV days I could only hope to see that version about half a handful of times on grainy UHF...if I was lucky enough to have access to the color set.

Chris, wasn't "Get Laid" the rejected title of the FOX version of Get Smart a few years ago?
