Fremantle is only airing its library. I'd imagine that it'd be too taxing to lease anyone else's.
Getting back to the original point about this article, about what shows may or may not air, and based on Freemantle's holdings (Goodson-Todman/Mark Goodson, Reg Grundy and the Hatos-Hall program "Let's Make a Deal"), here's my guesses as to what Freemantle has to choose from. Keeping in mind this is only speculation on my part:Goodson-Todman/Mark Goodson
* "What's My Line?"
* "To Tell the Truth."
* "I've Got a Secret."
* "Password"/"Password Plus"/"Super Password".
* "The Price is Right."
* "Card Sharks."
* "Match Game."
* "Family Feud."
* "Beat the Clock." (I wonder if this would include the 2002 run?)
* "Blockbusters." (Cullen version more than likely, although Rafferty isn't out of the question.)
* "Tattletales." (Any possibility of the 1977 syndicated run? Probably we'd see 1974-1976 and 1982-1984 CBS runs.)
* "The Better Sex."
* "Call My Bluff."
* "Choose Up Sides."
* "Double Dare."
* "Get the Message."
* "He Said, She Said."
* "It's News to Me."
* "Judge for Yourself."
* "Make the Connection."
* "Missing Links."
* "The Name's the Same."
* "Now You See It." (Narz run only.)
* "Number Please." (The one existing episode.)
* "Play Your Hunch."
* "Say When!!. (Whatever few episodes remain and in broadcast quality.)
* "Split Personality."
* "Two for the Money."
* "What's Going On?"
* "Winner Take All."
A distant possibility, depending on cross-ownership and how rerun rights are worked out:
* "Concentration" and "Classic Concentration" -- The 1973-1978 syndicated and 1987-1997 runs.
* "Match Game-Hollywood Squares Hour." Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't Sony hold the rights to only
the 1998 Bergeron run, and that someone else has rights to the various other runs?Hatos-Hall
* "Let's Make a Deal": Probably 1971-1977 and 1984-1986 syndicated and the current Wayne Brady run, with possibly a few scattered ABC daytime eps. that exist, and 1980-1981 syndicated.Note: I did not include other Hatos-Hall programs because I don't know if they are part of Freemantle's holdings.Carruthers Co.
* "Press Your Luck."Reg Grundy
* "Sale of the Century": Probably the syndicated 1985-1986 and the final eight months of the NBC run (as what was seen on GSN and USA).
* "Scrabble": More than likely 1the 1984-1990 NBC run.
* "Time Machine": Not that anyone's clamoring for it, but a certain possibility since the entire run exists.
* "Bruce Forsythe's Hot Streak": The short lived ABC daytime run from 1986.
* "Scattegories." Yes, the short lived 1993 adaption of the board game.Freemantle-only
* "Temptation: The New Sale of the Century." Run for your lives, folks!
Anyway, those are guesses, and only guesses. What actually gets aired, well, we'll have a program schedule soon enough and some of those burning questions will be answered.
