On the 3 pm episode of Buzzr's TPIR, airing on 6/14, they played the retired Phone Home Game and Poker Game. Last week I saw an episode featuring Pick a Pair with the Ferris Wheel set. They also showed female contestants reaching into Barker's pocket for their $100 bonus on these shows.
...................................so?

And on the 7pm episode of Password Plus, somebody guessed the password.

  • Just leave the set; that’d be terrific.

What a coincidence!  On the episode of Supermarket Sweep airing right now, team two used a shopping cart, while team three grabbed turkeys.

Out of curiosity, why would he?

"And the number one way to piss off Bob Barker... Ask him 'Hey, how's Dian?'"

Nope. Per Eubanks at the expo, hiding Barks wgmc sign under the couch was it. Bark would not start tape til they found out who did it. They call Eubanks on his ranch and finally gives up the, hidden, location

I imagine they never spoke again

Looks like GSN's added a several episodes of Blank Slate and Master Minds to its Youtube channels. Dunno if it means much of anything, but it caught my eye a moment ago.
"I just wanna give a shoutout to my homies in their late-30s who are watching this on Paramount+ right now, cause they couldn't stay up late enough to watch it live!"

Now celebrating his 21st season on GSF!

Forgive me if this has been discussed already. I noticed that if I watch the Barker channel on the Pluto app, and watch it on The Roku Channel app, I get different broadcasts. Does anyone know what the disparity is between the two?

As I type this, Roku's stream is showing E5845, whereas Pluto's stream is showing a TNPiR72 episode.

It's always been that way. The feed Roku uses (and is also on Amazon Freevee, Plex and maybe others) has fewer commercial breaks and isn't beholden to start shows on the top or bottom of the hour. The Pluto feed has more commercial breaks and tends to stick to a more strict schedule, though it can get a little off at times.

Freevee seems like they have far less commercial breaks than the others. I can usually watch 3 or 4 segments in a row before there is another commercial break.

Ok, so as the days and weeks go by, the streams get farther and farther apart. It's not like one is six hours ahead of the other.
