It is early Saturday; some people consider the B/W overnight late Friday night.

Then just tape both nights :-P

I'll be sure to be watching to see the Narz version, and speaking as someone who remembers those Saturday mornings at 8:30 AM right after Child's Play (just after the dark period was over), I know how unfcomfortable I was with seeing Gene Wood hosting, he definately had his talents behind the cameras at his announcer's mic. But, you have to give him an E for effort.

According to GSN's schedule, it's still Friday night until 6 AM (and that's true of other networks like TBS, Nickelodeon, TV Land, etc.).

The set didn't change until Gene Wood took over as host--it'll just depend on what color curtains they pull out for this episode (they weren't always consistent on what backdrop curtains they used).

Also, until Gene Wood got out of the announcing position and positioned himself to hosting, the couple had to do a stunt before a celebrity of the week was introduced and also, the entire logo was changed when Gene took over the hosting duties.

I don't believe it!!! This post makes sense. And it provided useful information.
First, OU pulls that overtime magic against Pitt last night and now this.
It is truly the age of miracles.
Anyone know why Jack stepped down as host after three seasons?

I would guess the chance to work closer to home on "Concentration," there may have been some gap between gigs, but we were still getting Jack's BTC into 1973.  It was nice to see Gail.

Having suffered through Wanny's regime in Chicago, Ohio's win over Pitt was no miracle.  :)

I couldn't read the copyright on the credits. What year was the BTC episode from?

Yes, but in the not-so-distant past, The Little Sisters Of The Poor would've made mince meat out of the Bobcats. We take our blessings as they come in all their seldomness and are very grateful.
Ditto on the "nice to see Gail" remark earlier in this thread. Did she quit the biz after BTC went bye-bye?

Good theory, but when Narz stepped down from Beat the Clock in 1972, Concentration was still airing on NBC daytime.  I don't think Jack was that clairvoyant; he probably got sick of commuting from California to Montreal (which is about the same as NY to LA).  I mean, even if Doe Narz worked all the flights, that's still tiring.

Still, I've never really gotten a good answer for this one.  He obviously didn't have a falling out with G-T.

The only other thing I can think of that might play a part in Jack's departure (and this is speculation but not enough to change game show history) was that perhaps the rules regarding Canadian personnel started to kick in and since Jack and Gene were Americans, that led to the hiring of Nick Holenreich?

Or it could be that G-T liked Gene's hosting style on the BTC clone "Anything You Can Do" and wanted to get him away from that, forcing Don Reid to replace Gene with Don Harron.

Either way, that question probably didn't come up at the recent Game Show Congrefs.

Per this interview with Gene, issues with Canadian authorities led to the show stopping production in 1974 (although how many stations were running it at that point, anyway?), and he left Anything You Can Do because it appears they didn't test the stunts very well.
