Will we see Price reruns on Buzzr in 2020? (will explain)
« on: February 17, 2019, 08:27:38 PM »
So thinking about what shows Buzzr should acquire in the near future....and I mentioned it in the thread about it in OILF, but think it deserves its' own thread really too here, I have a theory. Assuming it could be pulled off, I think there's a chance Price reruns could return next year. Reason being, they've reaired Classic Concentration and now Match Game/Hollywood Squares Hour on anniversary years of both airing for last time, 25 for CC, and 35 for MG/HS. Price will have been off air in repeats at least 20 years next year, so I am thinking if they were to bring it back....that may be the time they do it so they can market it as a big deal like these others. Logistics could make it difficult course, but I can see it occurring if they can work through that. It'd make a ton of sense to do it this way to me.

Anyone else think it's possible we'll see it like this? I'm hoping so anyway. Could be wrong, this is merely a theory mind, but the timing checks out at least around it based on what they've done the last 2 years now.

Regular repeats, yes, but given that CBS showed a 1975 half-hour episode after the 2002 Pillsbury Bake-Off, it would only truly be 18 years.
The above is my opinion and mine alone.

To answer your questions: yes, I am a guy and yes, I have a face. (I also have the occasional spurt of weirdness.)

I doubt most casual viewers would remember that. That's fair though, but I think it would be treated as 20 for all intents and purposes here.

I'd chalk it up to coincidence more than anything. Patterns get recognized after the fact.

In a theoretical world where they got clearance to air Price reruns tomorrow, they'd get hyped no matter what. It doesn't become more or less significant just cause it wouldn't be "a round number from when it last aired."
"It's the greatest challenge in the world to invent a new game.
For every one you see, every concept that is ultimately refined and developed, a dozen are worked on and not worked on, or almost worked on, or dropped because they don't read any more.
We test and hammer and test and hammer.
When you finally get it down so that it looks very very simple, that one has had the most complicated amount of work." -Mark Goodson

I don't think the time since the show was last rerun is considered a milestone. A more plausible time would be in 2021 to coincide with the show's 50th season.

Possibly....could maybe see that too. Like I said, could be wrong, but was just something I picked up on and wondered if the trend might extend to this. Time will tell.

Could Buzzr run into red tape with CBS because of the fact that the show is still being produced?

Whether they acquire the series or not, it's a shame that the first episode can't be rerun.
You know you're desperate for an answer when you look at the second page of Google.

What makes me laugh is at the live stage show, they air BUZZR promos and the host says the show is affiliated with BUZZR.

Bob could be willing to make an exception on the fur ban given the show's 50th anniversary if they did air classic episodes in celebration. Would the fur ban still be intact when Bob passes on?

Probably, likely is part of why it's not on the schedule now. Although they did get rights to show the current Match Game recently so.....there could be some precedent for Price there with that. But who knows for sure.

Perhaps the Cullen version or one the syndie versions might surface, and that would be good enough for me. There's also no Barker-related red tape to get through as well except for the late '70s nighttime run.

But then again, GSN is milking out relatively recent Wheel from over the past couple years, though of course, that doesn't have a network associated with it.
Now open for tape trading! Please PM me for an offer with a list included.

Wonder if Bob (or the Estate) would get any residuals from his episodes airing again, especially those when he was Executive Producer.

It's a very small window of what he would allow, at least initially. Starting around 1996, at Season 25 and continuing until his retirement, is the most likely timeframe, as by then, the show offered only American cars, Holly was let go in the middle of Season 24, and we all know about his stance on animal rights.

I would wonder too if Drew's shows would get a play. He's been on it for about 12 years now (which is crazy to think about lol), and they have already shown the current Match Game once, so it wouldn't be without precedent to run these too. I imagine be a lot less red tape to do it as well relatively when compared to Bob's run.

Many months ago now, around last summer if I remember correct, I received an email from Buzzr with a survey about current and future programming. There were quite a few questions where they asked about what your favorite gameshows were and which you'd like to see aired on the network in the future. On most of them the first choice in the list was "Classic The Price is Right starring Bob Barker." I'd assume they are certainly interested in getting Price on the air at some point.
