<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNM3RNKm2qA" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNM3RNKm2qA</a> an episode of Dawson Feud (from '77) and a bonus clip with a familiar family (from Feud's past)

Neat to see a rare time where the winning family doesn't return next show due to unforeseen circumstances AND a family from the pilot returning too. Did anyone catch incidentally...that Richard made an error in FM? He didn't get back to the weed question that was passed in 1st half. I couldn't tell how much time was left based on the timecode blocking things (only thing I hate about timecoded shows and clips, they obscure some of what's on screen and in a show like this important stuff at that), but looked like there was at least a few seconds left. I would imagine if FM was that close, they mighta given the $5k out after the fact if it was discovered.

Don't know if he could swing a deal with WGBH and show at least one 1970s ZOOM game segment.

Highly unlikely he/his site would, but it's an idea.

Going to bump this to bring you a rare 1978 High Rollers pilot that Wink has posted:

The Unsinkable Maggie Brown strikes again.  Hope she's doing well today.

Given how rampant he was in those days, surprised they didn't book Jack Campion for it.

That pilot was an interesting watch to say the least......between the different music that really didn't fit the show.....the complete lack of it at ALL for the Gauntlet run, and more than even those things Tom Kennedy's SUPER HIGH enthusiam to the point of SEVERE overkill during the entire show, it was a bit of a tough watch for me personally. And I say that as someone who respects Tom and his work a lot. But this was really not good IMO. I'm glad the kinks got worked out on all levels before it made air. Wouldn't have lasted even as long as it did I don't think otherwise.

I actually like the Whew! concept for its "Guess the Blooper" aspect. It made the show hilarious, I think. It deserved a longer run, for sure.

I think the big problem is that the pace is so frenetic, you can't really enjoy the humor in the bloopers most of the time.  And it's really hard to play along i think.  I enjoy the show, but I can see why it did not last particularly long.

That's what Tom Kennedy himself said in his recent interview he did. It was a show that was funny...but with no time to really absorb the funny. Would need to be tweaked/changed somehow for it to work so that that could shine as intended. Was too serious a format for its' own good.

Here's the pilot version of Scattergories from the UK that's much different than the version that aired in the US in 1993.

Here's a real treat: the second pilot for the Eubanks version of Card Sharks, from 1985. Interestingly, this was taped several months before the series' premiere, which aired in January 1986.
