what "super whammies"

Who will host it?

According to the PYL Fandom page:

Quote
Press Your Luck (2019 reboot)
Press Your Luck is a 2019 primetime game show created by Bill Carruthers. It is based on both the 1983-1986 game show and the 2002-2003 version known as Whammy!, of the same name. It premiered on CBS in June 7th, 2019 and was hosted by Rhys Darby (replacing Peter Tomarken in the original series and Todd Newton in Whammy!). The show announcer will be voiced by Jeffrey Tambor (replacing the late Rod Roddy in the original series and Gary Kroeger in Whammy!). The Whammy 2-D animations appear in the reboot and are voiced by Jeff Bergman (replacing the late Carruthers in both the original series and Whammy!). Including some new elements called the Super Whammy, which will automatically eliminate the plyer who lands on it, and the Platinum Ticket, which will give the player an extravagant prize of the player’s choice so long as He or She avoids the whammy.

However, I cannot find anything on Wikipedia itself except for this:

Quote
On February 21, 2019, a casting announcement was posted for a new version of Press Your Luck advertising opportunities for potential contestants to apply.

All that said, I sure hope this is for real and not some jokester pulling off a Crane Game-esque hoax.

I can't see them having a square that completely eliminates a contestant. That would be really cruel.

I doubt that's Bill Carruthers' voice in the 2002 revival.

@tpir04: everything you quoted from the fandom page reads like fiction, and poorly-written fiction at that. The tipoff for me: it "premiered" in June 2019 (you can't talk about a future event in the past tense), and the "announcer" being "voiced by" (bad English).

The Wikipedia entry at least records a factual event, they HAVE just sent out a call, but I thought it was for contestants (personally I wouldn't call that a "casting call," but that's semantics).

@vnisanian2001: frankly, I'm with urbanpreppie0004.

Folks, a word to the wise: whenever you see something on a webpage that anyone can edit with no accountability, take it with a grain of salt. There are all kinds of people who use the Web, and a very common trope is people who post things just to post them (or post just to get attention and look like an "expert" with inside information), or who lack the ability/desire to distinguish their own ideas from reality. What was posted to that PYL Fandom page reads exactly like someone's own idea for what they'd like to see in a revival show, being misrepresented as fact.

Whoa, urbanpreppie0004, no need to gang up on me like that. I was merely questioning what I saw.

Dunno who this Rhys Darby is suppose to be (and considering portions of that paragraph is written in the post-tense, very likely total BS)  but I definitely wouldn't mind seeing Craig Ferguson hosting this version.

After taking a closer look at the original entry, I see it was posted in the Wiki Ideas page. My mobile phone is what I mainly use for research, so I usually get the mobile sites instead of what you might get on a laptop or desktop computer. The mobile site had no tip-offs or anything. The top of the page just said 'Wiki Fandom.' Only when I opened the full site did I find that it was only an Ideas page. If I had known that in the first place, I would not have posted the info here. My apologies for any confusion.

To tpir04 and anyone else reading: I think the lesson here is to not be in such a hurry and to do a little fact-checking before you post. If you share things as fact without doing due diligence, it gets you attention but doesn't do much for your credibility. I use my Android phone for most of my research, and I always pay careful attention to the URL at the top of the screen to know what site I'm actually on, regardless of what the mobile version may or may not show.

I would say the same before attempting to draw conclusions with little or no supporting information--such as concluding a station was going off the air simply because of an incomplete program schedule, with no other hint that it would be happening.

So, this revival of Press Your Luck is not happening?  Or, did I misread something?

^ I think that was referring to tpir04's post, not the original post by goldroadfanatic.

I am guessing that should and if Press Your Luck return, my guess is that it will be on CBS' summer prime time schedule. CBS and NBC desperately need to build a prime time game show line-up like ABC has.
