A question about wiped shows
« on: October 23, 2018, 07:20:09 PM »
So, I was wondering, if you could go back in time and save any one game show from being wiped or otherwise destroyed so that it could be shown today, what would it be? I would like to save the original Match Game because I want to see how Gene Rayburn hosted before MG 7x.

I'm sure I'd speak for many by mentioning 70s "Pyramid".

The original Jeopardy, and also much of the 70's and early 80's daytime Wheel of Fortune

I'd vouch for Second Chance (77)

Wasn't the 70s Pyramid preserved? I remember seeing it on GSN some years back.

Some of it was. But not a lot.

The entirety of the ABC version through June 1978 has been wiped. Most of the CBS version with the exception of the three weeks taped at Television City and a few episodes here and there are also gone.

For me, I'll put forward the 1971-1975 ABC run of Password.

I thought of that one too here, only incarnation of Password really not represented in any form isn't it? (the pre all star format anyway)....along with Concentration (not sure how I missed that with the Classic version now running again)

There is existing video of Rayburn hosting "The Match Game", as it was originally called. I have it on the DVD set I own, but I'm sure it has be floating around YouTube somewhere.

If it was wiped, let's recover the original Supermarket Sweep.

Like 70's Pyramid there is a bit, but only a small handful of episodes unfortunately. I'd like to see more of it too to see how the show evolved to what it became in 70's.

There's a single episode that exists, but only the one.
