Game TV Match Game
« on: March 14, 2021, 01:39:49 PM »
Starting Tomorrow from 1 pm to 4 pm, Monday to Friday for the rest of the month, Game TV will be doing a Gene Rayburn 1970s Match Game Marathon, they are calling it "March Matchness".

They also had "March Matchness" marathons last year too.  But this year, it pre-empts the other retro game shows such as Super Password, Press Your Luck and The $100,000 Pyramid.

Speaking of Press Your Luck, GameTV started airing fresh episodes at the start of March, which started from sometime in September 1984 when John Harlan was at the mic.  However, unfortunately, Combs' Feud is gone.

I also discovered that Match Game '75 started airing at the start of this month.  Are they fresh episodes, or are they the same episodes GameTV previously aired as far back as 2018?

Just for clarification, the marathons are not scheduled for the remainder of March. GameTV's online schedule shows that the pre-empted programs return on Monday, March 29.

The shows pre-empted for the last two weeks are now back on the air, continuing with fresh episodes of Super Password and Press Your Luck from where it left off on March 12.  No skips to report.
