Tic Tac Dough is being rebooted (GSN)
« on: January 11, 2024, 08:30:05 PM »
Randy West posted on his facebook page about Tic Tac Dough being rebooted for Gsn. I wonder if Tom Bergeron will host or not.

Then there's the evergreen format that started in TV's first decade, Jack Barry and Dan Enright's "Tic Tac Dough." From its 1956 debut from NBC's Studio 6B, through various network and syndicated versions, most notably Wink Martindale's seven year run, the game almost returned on NBC during the height of Covid when the great Harry Friedman produced a 2021 pilot of an updated version hosted by Tom Bergeron.
The format is controlled by Sony, and the company is apparently prepping a new run for their GSN property. Details after Sony makes their announcement.

Just found Randy's Facebook post about this - he says in a comment that Tom Bergeron will NOT be hosting.

This has to happen months after I stop receiving GSN (my cable provider moved it to a different package)?

It'd be silly to think the dragon is going to rap. It's 2024!

The dragon is going to post TikToks.

$10K, when adjusted for inflation, is about the same or less than the $3,000-$4,000 prize packages that were played for originally.

My question is how will they self-contain the show and why is it a speed round?

You will take your 7-10 answers in :60 for $10,000 and you will like it! /s

I'm guessing do like HSq and you bank the pot (in points, of course) for each TTD. Highest score after three or four rounds wins. For a bonus round, I always liked the idea of having to get three-in-a-row in :30. Get the wrong answer, and it's a block a la Blockbusters. Unpopular opinion, no one but the fanboys would miss the Dragon and they're just gonna complain about it rapping anyway.

They could put dragons in the blocked squares.

Unless their experts with Xs & Os bring something incredible to the table, Tic Tac Dough will be mighty dull without champions on long streaks or big rollover pots.
