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).

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.

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.

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

I don't know too many owners who would want to stake their broadcast licenses on that.

Itís probably a good thing I donít own a television station then. :P

Historical context is key.  The shows in question aired decades ago.  Their associated advertisements are deals that were made decades ago and are completely and totally null and void today ó no new deals are being struck with the cigarette corporations, certainly.  The entire broadcast(s), minus present day ad inserts, are of a noticeably different era in history and would, presumably, be viewed as such to virtually all viewers, ads and all.

It would help if there was a precedent set as for whether or not such ads have been allowed to be shown alongside the shows they accompanied via direct sponsorship.  A couple of quick Google searches reveals very little, and itís quite possible no network has ever even tried, especially given how low of demand exists for such dated programs to be rebroadcast.  In such a case, it might just be easier to not air such shows at all than to go through the hassle of getting permission from the FCC.

Though, for what it's worth, I've also observed many, many skipped episodes of Buzzr's other B&W programming (I've Got a Secret and To Tell The Truth being the primary offenders here), and I'd almost be willing to bet that's a direct consequence of embedded cigarette advertising rendering the entire episode unfit for current OTA broadcast (the fact that many of the "skips" are on an every-other-episode basis with the "aired" episodes on Buzzr makes me think some kind of alternating-week sponsorship was in place).

Apparently, they're a special series of showings. On June 30, they have a block of What's My Line?, I've Got A Secret and Body Language scheduled from 4 to 8 Eastern.

Actually, that day's festivities run from 4 to 11 eastern.

Apologies for the bump, but starting in October, Cullen TPIR joins the regular lineup. Sundays at 4:00pm.

Also, LMAD returns to the lineup, airing weekdays at 7:30pm. I would assume they're simply swapping LMAD for Temptation.

Hoping that this is an omen for the Barker eps to finally get on the lineup.

I'm glad to hear that at least TPIR will be on Buzzr, even if it's not the more familiar version that turned 47 today. (However, I'm still holding out hope that Barker, or the estate in case he dies, will finally allow his episodes to be re-aired in some form.)

I'm actually hoping it's an omen for the 1972-1977 Dennis James-era TPiR to join the Buzzr lineup.

In any case, any idea which version of Monty's LMaD will air? Or would I be correct to presume that such is unknown as of yet?

Either that or the 1980s Tom Kennedy version; after all, they showed Body Language in the past. Those would be the next-best thing to having Barker on the air again.

Was his full season run aired on GSN? Or only a portion of it?
Title: Re: Cullen-era TPiR episodes coming to BUZZR
Post by: mellongraig on September 04, 2019, 04:14:35 PM
I think most of his episodes were run on GSN, but I don't think the whole season was fully rerun. I could be wrong though...
