Classic Concentration coming to Buzzr on 10/1
« on: September 03, 2018, 10:38:32 AM »
Per a post on Buzzrís Facebook page, Classic Concentration will be coming to Buzzr on October 1st. It is unknown what time it will be on, but I hope it will be in a prime time slot, I have a feeling either the second Supermarket Sweep airing will disappear or they will can Celebrity Name Game. I have never seen any form of Concentration before, but I am very excited for this show to join Buzzr.

Me likewise! It hasn't been on television at any time since it ended in the 90s, and as such, it'll be great to see it again.

So, NBC finally caves. What are the odds they can get the Narz edition (1973-78)?

I wonder how many Narz episodes still exist. Same goes for the original, though Goodson was not involved in that.

This is going to be amazing.

I've played the online flash games of the bonus round and have watched many episodes that made their way onto YouTube over the past 11 years. I can't wait to see the show on TV for the first time.

I think all the Narz shows are intact. Of the original series, some 12 or so kinescopes (including the 3/23/73 finale) are floating about on YouTube and the trading circuit.

There are several other shows from 1971 at the UCLA Museum of Radio and Television, paired up with those daysí telecasts of Sale of the Century, which followed.

Along with that,  the syndie versions of TTTT & WML? are coming to the network on that date as well.  There is a rumor that the color syndicated repeats of Password are coming to the network as well.

Well as of today, BUZZR is starting its second cycle back to the premiere after finishing up with the August 19, 1987 episode, the 58th episode of its lease. About a dozen or so episodes were skipped, but hopefully like Supermarket Sweep, have another lease come up soon so we can hopefully get up to around the introduction of the Take cards.
Now open for tape trading! Please PM me for an offer with a list included.

About a dozen or so episodes were skipped.

I thought only one episode was skipped (#13, OAD: 5/20/1987), and that only 61 episodes so far were converted to digital format, per a post on the Game Show Forum.

Now that they're back to the beginning, hopefully episode #13 airs, unless its master tape was damaged or lost, or the conversion was poor.

The online schedules are enough to confirm that we got 60 episodes (everything from 1 to 61, minus the skipped episode 13).
