I've frankly never cared for John Davidson's hosting. He always came across to me as a phony, stereotypical game show host, to the point that I thought he was the real-life incarnation of the Mr. Game Show toy from the 80s.
 
15
Wonder if Bob (or the Estate) would get any residuals from his episodes airing again, especially those when he was Executive Producer.
16
Perhaps the Cullen version or one the syndie versions might surface, and that would be good enough for me. There's also no Barker-related red tape to get through as well except for the late '70s nighttime run.

But then again, GSN is milking out relatively recent Wheel from over the past couple years, though of course, that doesn't have a network associated with it.

The TALK Is Right / Re: Your TPIR wishes for 2019
« Last post by pannoni1 on Today at 08:00:07 AM »
It's kind of a catch-22 when you think about it (or at least that's how I see it). We all know daytime TV ratings are steadily falling and have been for ages. I think a major driver of that is the overload of advertising, but that's an unsubstantiated belief. Regardless, falling ratings mean they have to squeeze in more ads, to maximize return on investment for everyone who IS watching...which turns into a vicious cycle. (Ad overload is precisely why I rely on Amazon Unbox for just about all my TV needs...no commercials.)

I strongly believe that reducing the amount of ads per show would get people to start tuning back in. Not only is it less disruptive, fewer commercials should in theory result in better ones.

Yes, I know...long shot, but I'd like to think the logic is sound at least.

It's not just the overload of ads, it's the TYPE of ads that play through! As you know, 60-second (and even some 90 and 120 second) prescription pharmaceutical spots (AKA the "Ask your doctor") ads are some of the most commonly seen on TV these days, as opposed to the 15- and 30-second over-the-counter ones that were common for the show's first 25 years or so. You also have more stuff like insurance companies and money lending that only sells with a much narrower-focused audience. You don't see as many ads for things like food, house cleaning products, department stores, or even things like batteries like you traditionally saw, and so many of the "good" ones are just 15 seconds long, often sandwiched in between the long pharma/insurance ones. So the Selsun Blues, Lysols, Actifeds, Kellogg's, and Duracells have taken a back seat to the Xeraltos, Liberty Mutuals, AstraZenecas, and more that appeal to the teleworkers as opposed to the stay-at-home moms. You'll see that difference if you watch the original broadcasts with commercials that circulate from most of the Bob era compared to those from the Drew era.
18
To make it better, I would have shortened MG two just two rounds and allow for both the Super Match (just up for $10,000, no special multipliers with just six stars) and HS's "Pick a star for a prize" bonus round, where then I would have introduced the multiple choice question, similar to how it was on the first three seasons of the Bergeron version while having the multiplier cards showing stuff ranging from money, trips, rooms of furniture, jewelry, to a new car. I'd keep the $25 for correct answers, but of course force a contestant to answer correctly to win a round. And there's another thing that could have returned as well: The Secret Square. That way, not only HS is back to a much more respectable format, it would also allow for more equal time between the MG and HS segments, which was more 40/20 as opposed to 30/30. If it was called "Match Game FEATURING Hollywood Squares Hour", then it would make better sense. Too bad John Davidson wasn't available a few years early for the HS portion, even if he had been a square many times in the original version by this point.
19
Can i also say that Gene, bless his heart, looked downright pained to be there?

You may, and you'd be right.

Was that edited in any way?

Not that I recall. They didn't edit out any of Vend-o-Price either, which made for good tv!

Yes, Drew is awesome in person!
