Any time we hear "Starcrossed" and "Splendido" is definitely a good time  :-)

Finally. One of the episodes I'd most been looking for. (But I'm not done yet.)
Like this one, I'm always looking for any episodes in which "The Money Game" is played.

I wonder if Wink has any episodes of his old show Words and Music from 1970. I've heard it wasn't a very good show, but it's been something I've been intrigued to see for a long time.
I'll put this in here, but I didn't want it to overshadow the more interesting topic of specials. Earlier in the show Mike and Beth talked about Jenny McCarthy's appointment to The View and it leads to Mike talking about her appearance on Price. Mike says that he and the staff mulled over whether or not to have her on the show because of the controversy that follows her. They ultimately decided to have her because she's "a great advocate for what she believes in." Now, Mike didn't specify exactly what he meant by "what she believes in" and what "belief" of her's that he's addressing, but that could certainly be taken the wrong way.

To address my earlier post, Wink swapped around the two Concentration shows to keep them in chronological order. :embarassed: #1541 shall now be unlocked for 2,000 YouTube subscribers.

Speaking of Wink, he has found this in his collection:

The above is my opinion and mine alone.

I asked on his Facebook page about it, and John Ricci Jr. said he'd keep an eye out for it.

Now this is something. Going to be quite a sight if or when we get to see them.

Awesome, thanks. As far as I'm aware that's one show that's been pretty much lost since its original broadcast; I don't think it ever found its way to the trading circuit over the years.

Per a very recent update, they are currently transferring from Betamax not solely the final two episodes of Gambit but at least one Las Vegas Gambit episode (from the second part of the run, if the screencap shown is any indication):

Wink has uploaded a blooper from the Geoff Edwards era of Chain Reaction (specifically 1987, based on the color scheme of the set):

That's a surprise. Looking forward to it.

Hopefully there are shows of the original 1974-1976 High Rollers out there. I would love to see the finale.

At least two, possibly three, episodes are known to exist. Two of them exist at the Paley Center, clips from a thirdófrom the final seven weeks, using the "Face Lifters" formatócan be seen on YouTube in the "March of the Game Show Hosts" video.

Looking through the notes I have compiled from a myriad of websites, I am aware of at least five episodes (possibly six, as RJSchex notes) that exist in some form:
-The two held by the Paley Center are June 11 and July 4, 1975, the former being a master copy (more specifically, per the listing, show #258) and the latter having been recorded by Andy Warhol. The former is also rather noteworthy for co-host Ruta Lee being hit in the head by a falling chandelier.
-Regarding the other three, they are held by Archival Television Audio, Inc. (as audio recordings, per the company title): the debut show (July 1, 1974); October 15, 1974; and July 15, 1975.

clips from a thirdófrom the final seven weeks, using the "Face Lifters" formatócan be seen on YouTube in the "March of the Game Show Hosts" video.
Which per my notes is from the 1983 Daytime Emmy Awards, among a variety of other game show clips.

...Hm.

For whatever reason, several of the uploads have been made private, including the Baffle clips and Press Your Luck April Fool's joke.

I've seen one of the Paley High Rollers shows. Fairly certain it was the July 4, 1975 episode. It was enjoyable, so I'd not complain if it came up on Wink's channel.

The July 3, 1975 episode also exists in the hands of a private collector and has been viewed by Adam Nedeff.
