Fremantle has made a fair bit of money off my channel.  As long as they are cool with it, Iím cool with it.

Since 2013, I donít believe Iíve received any takedown notices.  Then again, my video library isnít as extensive as some othersí here, so who knows, really.

Itís to their advantage to allow as many of our videos to stay up as possible.  Recent episodes, especially from the current season, are understandably problematic, so I donít blame them for taking those down.  But the rest of the content probably nets them a decent amount in ad revenue that they literally have to do nothing to earn.  Shoot yeah, Iíd take that if I was them!

Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.

Now if someone could drill this mindset into the thick skulls of everyone at Sony, we'd be set.

Getting back to the Price reruns on Buzzr topic, aside from the rights for the episodes belonging to CBS, does the staff and/or Drew have any known objection to reruns airing? I could see them (and CBS) not wanting the first few Drew seasons to rerun because of their overall quality (especially Drew's first few months of season 36 and season 37).

Besides Drew, Stan, and Adam, is there anybody who was around in Seasons 36 and 37 who's still with the show?

I don't think there's anybody else with enough influence to say "I'd rather not".

Password looks like any idiot could have made it up, but we have 14 of our people working on that show. There is a great complexity behind the screen. It requires great work to keep it simple."

Gina. Rachel and Amber. Manuela joined in season 37. And undoubtedly several Television City employees are still working in Studio 33.

Why the comparison? Both eras are memorable and remarkable by their own way. The thing is just that some people (just SOME) prefer a certain watching a certain era of a show, just 'cause that's the era they grew up on, just like some rants on YT about watching Dawson's Feud reruns over Harvey's first-runs.

Also, I wouldn't think CBS would think that way, they've already established the fact that the show is still strong, without any comparisons of each of any eras of the show.

Oh, to hell with Shaffer and the horse he rode in on.

As sad as it is, he's still at it whenever a new classic Price is Right video is uploaded by a YT user and doesn't like episodes that meet his standards to the point where it's not going to stop. The best thing that can be done is just block and report the user.

Sony unfortunately doesnít need the money and doesnít care. They have the J! archives under lock and key and it seems unlikely theyíre ever going to make them available. Someone should just compile everything thatís available amongst tape traders at this point and make them available illicitly, same with the Wheel archives.

The lack of road trips for both shows when they were once a staple seems to suggest otherwise. They used to do three (sometimes four) road trips every season for a good stretch and then at least one a year up until the late 00s. Now, I think WDW in 2017 for Wheel and DC in 2016 for J! were the only trips they've taken in the past five years.

I also thought that massive email leak among other things at Sony indicated that they weren't exactly doing great compared to their expectations on both the film/TV side.
