Card Sharks next to return
« on: February 25, 2019, 08:12:46 PM »
I just read this evening on buzzer blog thatCard Sharks is the next classic game heading for a reboot. One issue I have about this, I personally cannot see this as a prime time offering; my gut feeling is that it will be a new daytime version and will likely be on NBC, paired up with the first new version of Concentration in nearly 30 years, as a new one-hour game show block, replacing the third hour of Today. The other choice would be first-run syndication paired as a two hour block with Steve Harvey's Family Feud, Alec Baldwin's Match Game and a new Press Your Luck.

I think Match Game and Family Feud should be paired together. IMO it makes more sense, whether or not it is feasible. Family Feud did evolve from the Super Match, as we all know.

...paired up with the first new version of Concentration in nearly 30 years, as a new one-hour game show block...

May I ask your source? I have not seen anything about a new Concentration.

There is zero chance NBC News is relinquishing an hour of Today at this juncture. Even sans Kathie Lee, the fourth hour isn't going away, at least not in the near term. Nor is Alec Baldwin hosting daily show, nor is it confirmed Press Your Luck is daily.

For those interested, here is the post on Buzzer Blog that mentions this:

http://buzzerblog.com/2019/02/25/card-sharks-revival-casting/

"Concentration" is not mentioned.

When it's a "gut feeling" that seems completely at odds with reality, you'll forgive me for being a little dubious.

I don't see why Card Sharks couldn't be in primetime. If they make the Money Cards a high enough prize it would certainly fit in primetime.

At this point I'd consider any post from jaywilliams "a little dubious", given his posting history.

No source but it is my personal two cents and opinion other than a wiki rumor from last summer that leaked a new Concentration with Stephen Cobair, but that is nothing but a wiki rumor, but we have had no remake of Concentration in nearly 30 years so it is time that NBC and NBCUniversal considers it, again my two cents.

There might not be a choice for NBC but to give up the third and possibly fourth hours of Today. It is time for NBC to start exploring other daytime programming options, including game shows.

 I can confirm that indeed Card Sharks is in the works for a reboot to be aired on ABC.  I got this information from Randy West. :) He has information on his facebook page on being a contestant.

That's....not how any of this works.

NBC just announced Kathie Lee's replacement. That hour is going nowhere. NBC makes serious money off the Today franchise, and until such time as that's not the case, they most certainly are not in a position of "having no choice."
