Game Shows "On The Move"
« on: January 31, 2024, 11:33:32 AM »
What game shows switched locations multiple times during their specific runs?  In other words,
• Specific single game show incarnations
• NOT shows which simply shot in multiple studios on the same property.

In it's 14+ year run, I believe Wayne Brady's LMAD leads the pack as far as number of moves within the same incarnation with SIX different studio locations:

Tropicana Resort & Casino, Las Vegas (2009–10)
Sunset/Bronson Studio, Hollywood (2010–15)
Raleigh Studios Hollywood (2015-17)
Saticoy Studios, Van Nuys (2017-22)
Quixote Studios, Sylmar (2022-23)
Haven Studios, Glendale (2023-present)

Any other shows even close to that?

Feud has gone back and forth between LA and ATL quite a bit over the years.
"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!

Current Feud would be the most obvious example to me.  Orlando, three locations in LA, and three locations in Georgia, plus a move to another Georgia location coming up.

Didn’t Millionaire end up with six when all was said and done?

I know they shot at Lincoln Square, 106 and Park, Stamford, and Caesars in Las Vegas, but I could swear they also shot at Bally’s in Vegas and another studio near the Hudson River in Manhattan.

WWTBAM also taped at Sony in Culver City during the Jimmy Kimmel-hosted pandemic seasons.

As far as Vegas, my memory is a little fuzzy on this, but I think the show first taped inside Bally's (Jubilee Theater, perhaps?) before moving into a production studio "under the tent" around Bally's and Caesars.

Accurate. I was personally surprised that they fit the whole set on top of the theater stage. Alternatively, when it was in the tent, it felt tiny (which is why all those GSN shows shot there felt so cavernous).

I saw that tent when I visited for the last TCONA. That did not look very big from the outside, and I can’t imagine it was bigger on the inside.

Although come to think of it, the set really isn’t that big to begin with, right? I don’t seem to remember a whole lot of space being taken up and everything kind of being stacked on top of you, but will also concede that might not have been everyone’s experience.

I presume that episodes taped on-location don't count either? If not, Wheel would qualify from when they traveled to a new city quite often back in the '90s.
It's a well-known fact that Lincoln loved mayonnaise!

CBS studio 59 housed WML?, IGAS, TTTT, PYH until CBS abandoned it and moved to studio 52 circa 1960. WML? and TTTT were later in studio 50 which had been converted to color for the Ed Sullivan Show.

I forgot about that condition.  I'm thinking moreso shows that did most, if not all of their seasons at one specific studio, then moved for whatever reason.

G.E. College Bowl used to film on the campus of the current champion until this proved to be a logistical nightmare.

Not as close to some of the aforementioned, but Davidson "Squares" did a bit of studio-hopping in its 3-year run (NBC Burbank > ABC Prospect > Metromedia > Universal)......and that doesn't count their special remotes.
There are three things I've learned never to discuss with people: Religion, politics, and the proper wrapping of microphone cables.

That's interesting - tho I will say, that stage was HUGE. When I announced Price is Right there, the backstage held ALL of the props and sets needed for the at the time Vegas show at the Jubilee theater, including a rendition of the Titanic, that yes, sunk, every night :)

The Jubilee Theater has an elevator stage. After each performance of TPIR Live everything was lowered into the basement — prizes, set pieces, everything — so the stage was clear for the nighttime shows, then TPIR Live was reset the following day.

The stage of the Jubilee Theater is remarkably deep, which is great for shooting television.
