Narz "Concentration" coming to Buzzr
« on: March 06, 2020, 07:20:01 PM »
After resting in the vaults for 40+ years, the syndicated "Concentration" with Jack Narz will be hitting Buzzr on March 30, replacing "All-New Let's Make a Deal" on the weekday schedule.

Buzzr's YouTube entourage posted this earlier today:

.......and they've also started advertising it on-air, with a promo that plays around the show's iconic trilon sound.

Now THAT'S a very pleasant surprise! Haven't seen this on T.V. since I was three years old in the late 70s. This will be appointment viewing for me!

Ever since I saw episodes posted by Wink on YT, I got hooked on that version of Concentration. I'm thrilled to see it on Buzzr.

This is great for sure. I make you a bet they'll pair it with Classic back to back like they do with the various Password incarnations. Really cool move.

I hope they do too.

They did the same thing with the Combs and Dawson editions of Feud, as well as the Eubanks and Perry versions of Card Sharks.

So where in the run will they begin showing Narz "Concentration" episodes? With five years and roughly 975 episodes ... it'd be interesting to figure if they advance right to the fifth season or start earlier in the run.

My understanding is that they're starting in 1976.

And on their social media pages they posted a clip from episode 0975 (which, in typical Goodson-Todman parlance, would be the 485th episode produced), which would almost be smack in the middle of the run.

I heard that NBC digitized both eras Concentration and Classic Concentration years ago,  so at that shouldn't be a problem.

I must say that seeing the Narz version of concentration is going to be fun!!!! I love the theme, and the use of "Double Play" for the bonus round! Even the music cues used for the 'head starts' are awesome! I can't wait! (even though I have to, LOL)
