2:30 p.m. Eastern / 11:30 a.m. Pacific - Family Feud (1976; an ordinary episode in which "Bob Barker" is a correct answer)

"Guys, we're short a couple of shows for the tribute.  Use your heads, what else can we do?"

"Boss, I know just the thing!"


Could be worse, they could have pulled out an episode where a member of the family was named Bob, and he lived here -- https://www.villageofbarker.org/

And then went to jail and used his products: https://www.bobbarker.com/

Since they're often used in government contracts, the Check-Out price range is $10,000.00 high or low.

The 70s Feud episodes, as utterly tangential as their inclusion here comes off, have actually wound up being my favorite part of this stunt. Buzzr has, for whatever reason(s), almost entirely avoided any Feud produced before 1980 for as long as the network has been around, which is a shame as for me it's when the show was at it's most enjoyable and most relaxed. There's a leisureliness to the pacing of the 200 point shows that's just delightful, and Dawson's temperament is far more relaxed and jovial in the first half of the run.

I watched the 1976 episode (just the 49th episode in the series' run), and it was more surprising when Dawson didn't kiss all of the female contestants.

I agree with that.  The last half of the run you could tell his attitude was different, and for fans like us who know the backstory, it's not as much fun to watch.

It's a joy watching those initial episodes before that started.  I know that GSN ran all of the '76 episodes decades ago but I don't think I saw all of them.  I'm not sure exactly when it started.  My recollection is that by Christmas he was kissing some of the female contestants, but it didn't become a habit until a little later, IIRC.

ISTR that Dawson was probably getting complaints early on about picking and choosing who he wanted to kiss (and the comment he made on air about getting aroused), so his answer was to kiss virtually every female (with consent, of course). Times are not that different...

Anyone have any idea why the 6/3/63 episode of To Tell the Truth was included in Betty White Christmas today? Betty wasn't in the episode.

Betty was in a couple of Garry Moore TTTT eps that aired on 12/17. She sat next to hubby Allen Ludden. I had never seen these eps before.

Cool!  Did you get a sense they were from earlier in the run?  The mod set, maybe?  I think historically, GSN didn't run too many of those earlier episodes, much like they rarely ran the first season of Bruner and WML?
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.

NOT the mod set, the one after. So it was from 1974 and after.

Buzzr has aired this week of shows in the past. This isn't the episode that BillCullen1 saw specifically, but probably from that same week. April of 74. I remember catching it the first time around and being delighted that they had guested together on the panel. It's felt like Buzzr's been quietly blazing through this mid-era run of Moore TTTT and I don't know how much of that GSN has previously rerun, but there's been some gems in there when I've caught it and I need to watch it more.

A mistake has aired on Buzzr. During "This week in Game Show History" we hear the announcer say that in 1956 To Tell The Truth debuts with host John Charles Daly. OOPS

Hah! I'll never forget the one that recalled how Allen Ludden adjourned The Liar's Club for the last time in 1989.
Whoever's approving these isn't at the right level of "fan" ;D
(Then again, at least these little bits are easy to make disappear and forgotten.)
