I'm beginning to suspect that Bob might be the reason episodes with Finish Line were never shown. He had stated in his Academy of Television Arts and Science interview that he disliked it because he hated horse racing.

Except for the February 20, 1979 episode that was seen on GSN's WIN-TV, I think it was basically in part due to fur coats like the rest of the earlier seasons and while some could have been available to show because of no fur coats, GSN was unable to reach that particular season from their normal schedule.

Today, that, model clearances, and some of the games in general are the reasons why we aren't seeing these epsiodes rerun yet (other than hopefully studio master quality episodes).

Out In Left Field / Re: The $100,000 Pyramid with Michael Strahan - Season Three

For Famous Songs, I would've started with "Happy Birthday" and "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and then said some well-known popular songs like "I Got You Babe" or "I Will Survive." Star Spangled Banner would've been a great clue too GameShowKid.
Thanks. I didn't have time to think about it during the actual round, but a contestant could just name famous songs by one band, like the Beatles, to get the partner to simply say the word "Songs".

For Things That Are Bumpy I would've said rough skin, I assume rough wouldn't be buzzed.

The TALK Is Right / How come season 7 (1978-1979) hasn't been rerun for 40 years?

The same season w/ Finish Line, Shower Game, the original Punch-a-Bunch... that can't be the reason why season 7 eps havn't been rerun/seen the light of day for 40 years, right? Right?

Or is there another reason? (Can't search the forums since "7" isn't a 2 letter word. go figure).

With only $33,000 won tonight, this show was an absolute train wreck. It gets a major F.

On the August 12th episode: Again, no big wins. And if I remember correctly, Kathy Najimy has yet to make it to the Winner's Circle this season.

"Polyester" was an excellent clue for "Fabrics (Materials)", and I thought the contestant spent way too much time on that subject. I would have passed, probably gotten the $4000 and $5000 subjects pretty easily, and then returned to it. Those subjects, respectively, were: "Things with Holes" (I immediately thought of "swiss cheese", which would have paired nicely with her "a golf course") and "Types of Oil" (I threw "canola" in with her "olive" and "grapeseed".)
 
Hoping I wouldn't get buzzed, I would have said "What You Preach" for "Things You Practice". I also thought of "your piano skills". How about "a dirt road" and "a teenager's skin" for "Things That Are Bumpy"? And the contestant didn't have much time with it, but I came up with "an expertly built bookcase" for "Sturdy Things".

Yes, brain freeze from Tim Meadows on "What a Margarita Might Say". And one from the contestant, who started off with "Bin Laden" for "People Whose Last Name is Obama". "Things You Pick Up"? How about "the check" and "a dropped hundred dollar bill"? :)

What would you have come up with quickly for "Famous Songs"? The first one that came to my mind was "The Star-Spangled Banner". But what else to say? The pressure!

Out In Left Field / Re: Buzzr newbie- programming cycle question

Not sure myself, as I recently got Comcast who carries Buzzr on ch. 284 here, but I noticed that their run of Iíve Got a Secret jumped from February 1964 back to the middle of 1962. The 5 and 6 PM runs of Match Game recently jumped from summer of 1975 and winter 1976 respectively to spring 1978 and late summer 1973. I guess biding time to see what rolls out is the best option.

They had a family reunion Christmas Week episode in season 45. It was just family members playing - notably, a grandmother and two granddaughters who won Triple Play.
