Looking forward to this myself. I saw the show when it originally came on in the 80s, and I always thought that Jon Bauman got a bad rap. He was terrible, he was just unpolished as a host. With proper seasoning and a little time I alway thought that he would have improved.

Remember the show during its original run as well (albeit barely).  Bauman didn't have a chance I'm afraid since he basically had big shoes to fill and was teamed with Rayburn.  Wasn't Jon's fault Peter Marshall passed on the opportunity to host.  I still wonder what the outcome would have been has Pete hosted (and if they had a better set and/or timeslot)

I wonder if Fremantle could work magic and re-create MGHS to air somewhere following this rerun (similar to how Whammy made its debut following PYL's return to TV in reruns after a 6-year absence)

Seeing as how it ran just nine months, it's doubtful Fremantle would take a chance. Then again, Chain Reaction ran only five months on NBC originally and it's been revived three times since.

From what I understand, the opportunity was never Peter's to pass up. For some reason NBC never thought to offer him the job (this is probably why, by Peter's own admission, he was glad when the show was canceled).

Is this true? Is Buzzr really going off the air forever on Wednesday February 27 at 9:00 a.m.?

I just find this troubling. First, there were problems in New York, and now comes this.

I have never seen this happen before; the week's schedule only partially filled (if it did, I don't remember). That was how one of the posters claimed it was a sign of the channel being gone forever.

That is quite the leap in logic there.

The schedule being only partially filled happens all the time.

Sadly, such faulty leaps in logic (or illogic, as the case is here) are par for the course for him.

Absolutely not.

As someone who works in TV, stop making such generalizations. Most stations only program the next 1-2 weeks in advance. Anything beyond that is STILL BEING WORKED ON. People have jobs at a station or a network. Let them do their jobs and don't play the Chicken Little card when you see fit just because you don't see a schedule past a certain date.

According to Buzzr's schedule, the four episodes will start airing at 4:00 pm on that Sunday. Did they say yet whether they'll start from the premiere? One of the promos has Gene talking about the "marriage" so it seems plausible.

They're running episodes 2 to 5 (Tuesday to Friday of the premiere week).

If the promos showed clips from the premiere, then I'm guessing we'll be seeing it later in the year, when Buzzr puts it on their regular schedule.

If not, oh well. At least it's on the trading circuit.

Curious question.  Is "The Hollywood Squares" owned by MGM Television or CBS Television Distribution?

According to "The Other Wiki",  CBS owns only the HS NAME,  Sony owns the format, thereby explaining why the most recent incarnations were called "HIP-HOP SQUARES".

I'm looking forward to this marathon and seeing this show.  I saw the commercials during Classic Concentration during my lunch break while I was working from home today.
