TPIR may be coming to Buzzr
« on: February 25, 2019, 03:01:06 PM »
I learned my lesson with the Press Your Luck Fandom fiasco, so, please, take this with a medium-sized grain of salt.

The TV Passport listings for Buzzr for 3/8/2019 show the Cullen TPIR on at 8:00 PM.  The schedule for Thursday, March 7 is the same as the current one. Body Language also appears to return as well.

I walk into Barker's Bargain Bar to find some deals. I notice the men's department and encounter some Temptation. I go over and look at some t-shirts trying to figure out which one is 1/2 Off. One shirt has Five Price Tags on it for some reason so I must go to the price scanner to find out which is the One Right Price. Next I go over to the slacks and see a sign, "2 for the Price of 1." I figure the Clearance Sale price is around $40 each. Seeing that it's a good deal, I Take Two. Time is running short, so I hurry over to the shoes department to see if I can Pick a Pair for my meeting tomorrow. I find the perfect shoes, hurry back to the Check-Out and hand the clothes to the clerk so she can ring them up. She tells me the Actual Retail Price for all the items, and I discover...

THE PRICE IS RIGHT!

Have a nice day.

UPDATE: The Monday, March 11 schedule for Buzzr seems to revert back to the existing lineup. My advice: Catch it while you can!

Assuming her episode was February 1, 1961, then yes.

Looking at the episode guide, Her episodes were January 9th through the 27th of 1961. February 1st's episode seems to have been pre-empted or interrupted with an NBC News Bulletin.

I don't know what episode guide you are looking at, but those dates are wrong. The primetime version was on Wednesday nights at 8:30 for the 1960-61 season. January 9 and 27 are not on Wednesday (in fact, they aren't even the same day of the week!). February 1st is.

Just addendum: If this was your source, then those dates referred to the daytime version, which does not exist. We are only talking about the primetime run here.

It was, although it does mark that Arlene Francis did host a few primetime episodes during the same month. My apologies about getting primetime and daytime mixed up.

Hot off the presses, here is a promo and it does indeed have a clip from that episode within, plus a lot of other goodies!

I've got a question: If all Holly and Dian episodes were banned by Barker, how was GSN able to show them throughout the late 1990's? Didn't someone say not a single clip of Holly was seen in the 25th anniversary special?

And David Levine and Cliff Mac, who worked on the BCI DVD both said the rumor about banned models wasn't a rumor.

Just to make people like you ask stupid questions like these.

It was not a stupid question, Bryce. It was a valid one.

Think about it. Barker supposedly forbade CBS from showing any Holly and Dian clips in the 25th Anniversary special, but when GSN started airing the show, he then says, "You can show Holly and Dian as long as the episodes don't have any furs". How did this happen?

Holly and Dian weren't generally shown Because Bob would have been actively involved in the selection of clips and videos for the 25th Anniversary special and could easily say "Nope, not airing that".  As the EP and per his talent agreement if he wanted to sit in a production meeting and say "Don't show Dian", they aren't showing Dian. It's not "forbidding CBS", it's "sat in a production meeting and said "don't feature them, and if you can avoid showing them even better"'. Although a quick 15 second skim of the episode on Youtube without even trying shows Holly is in the background of at least one clip (a Hole in One playing).
