Was Hot Seat cut short by a commercial for anyone else?

Sounds like an improvement to me.

When Randy's episode got skipped, I downloaded the (really crappy multi-generation) copy from YouTube and compared the runtime to the timing between breaks on the botched episode. It was an exact match. So, the episodes got loaded in backwards.

By the way, I know that Whew! used an odd production number format -- e.g. #A-132D; is the number portion what Buzzr is putting in their program guide?

Melvin Van Peebles, influential actor/director and father of actor/director Mario Van Peebles, passed away yesterday at age 89 at his home in Manhattan, NY.  No cause reported. https://variety.com/2021/film/news/melvin-van-peebles-dead-sweet-sweetbacks-baadassss-song-1235071660/

I presume this was intended as a syndicated thing? Count me in as having "buzz" if that will help. If Jay Leno's You Bet Your Life (which really isn't all that bad) can be picked up, this should be a shoe in.

For some reason, Barbara spun second despite winning a higher value
IUFB than Michael did. They are listed here from lowest to highest
winnings.


That's because you forgot to add the $288 Michael won in Money Game.

The pilot for this was taped all the way back in June. Just waiting for a series order now.

Can't help but to wonder if this Tic Tac Dough revival will be Hollywood Squares in all but name with Tom Bergeron hosting? I mean, they're basically the same game except one has celebrities and a more light hearted atmosphere.
