I'm pretty sure it will be the eps GSN played way back when. I wonder if Buzzr may either uncover other episodes or tap into those on YouTube (at least the ones without cigarette sponsor tags).
The Georgia Lottery's slogan is "Today could be the day." In my case, it's "That'll be the day."

They have about 70 episodes, give or take a few, in their possession.

They've posted an I've Got a Secret episode with cig ads on Social Media recently.

What are the rules on airing episodes with  cigarette advertisements?

I'd assume "don't do it", but I wouldn't swear to it.

Well, this is a start! Having the original TPIR on should be of interest to those who weren't familiar with that version and thought that it started with Barker. (BTW, it's a bit ironic that the Cullen edition began at almost the same time as Barker's first TV series, Truth or Consequences.)

How do you know that? I am fairly certain that GSN aired way more than 70 episodes of Cullen Price.

There was an alt.tv.game-shows post made way back in the late 90's about that, but I'm having trouble finding it.

UPDATE: I found it.

That is by no means official. I am fairly sure that more than 70 episodes can be aired. I would rather hear from Fremantle themselves as to what they have or don't have overall rather than the number of episodes GSN aired.

Honestly, I don't know what the rule is. GSN aired a portion of Winston ads back in the day (early 2000's) with seemingly no problem, but haven't when they've aired the series since 2006. I don't know if those shows were preceded with some message about smoking.

Worth noting that the episode Buzzr posted on FB featured a Surgeon General's message in the info. That could be the answer to what the rule is. To just warn against it.

Two things to note...
1. GSN is a cable network, Buzzr is over-the-air, thus Buzzr is under stricter rules than GSN is.
2. There's no restrictions on uploading to the internet, thus a good way of sidestepping broadcast regulations.

Just from my perspective as a journalism major, cigarette ads are most certainly a no-no today, which we all know that.  However, given the ads in question were intended for an audience some 50+ years ago, in addition to their historic value, I donít believe it would be a problem for them to be aired.  Itís doubtful any reasonable person would confuse the Ďadvertisementsí as being intended for them, at least in my opinion.
Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.

Very true! These cigarette ads were part of historical broadcasts from way-back-when; it's not like cigarettes are still being advertised today.
