  1. Beginning on 4/21,
    9am is now Password Plus with Blockbusters being moved to 9am weekends.
    9:30am is Whammy with PYL being moved to 9:30am weekends.
    10am is 25K Pyramid.
    10:30am is SotC.

    100K Pyramid goes away.

  2. If those rumored schedule changes are true, then here's what I hope the GSN schedule will look like in June (if nothing gets acquired)

    8:00am Match Game
    8:30am Match Game
    9:00am Password Plus
    9:30am Press Your Luck
    10:00am $25,000 Pyramid
    10:30am Sale of the Century
    11:00am Super Password
    11:30am Blockbusters
    12:00pm Lingo (Woolery)
    12:30pm Lingo (Engvall)
    1:00pm Family Feud (O'Hurley)
    1:30pm Family Feud (O'Hurley)
    2:00pm Catch 21
    2:30pm Chain Reaction
    3:00pm Family Feud (Karn)
    3:30pm Family Feud (Karn)
    4:00pm Bingo America (Karn)
    4:30pm Bingo America (Duffy)
    5:00pm Whammy!
    5:30pm The Pyramid
    6:00pm Family Feud (Harvey)
    6:30pm Family Feud (Harvey)
    7:00pm Family Feud (Harvey)
    7:30pm Family Feud (Harvey)

  3. Haven't gotten any new pdfs yet, but this looks like the weekday morning lineup starting April 21:

    8:00am Match Game
    8:30am Match Game
    9:00am Password Plus
    9:30am Whammy
    10:00am $25,000 Pyramid
    10:30am Sale of the Century
    11:00am Super Password
    11:30am Woolery Lingo

    Whammy was doing decent numbers on weekend mornings, so GSN must want to see how it would do with a regular weekday slot. Bringing back Woolery Lingo is apparently an effort to help Carrie Ann's 1 vs. 100 with a better lead-in. Weekday morning just wasn't performing that well, so a shakeup was likely sooner or later.

    If I get any new pdfs with these changes, I'll post 'em.

  4. Oh, one other bit of good news for me: Chain Reaction apparently returns at 2:30 PM. It should never have left.

  5. One more comment: this looks like an effort to take a little age off the weekday morning schedule. That's been coming for a while, I think. The changes also fit in with Goldhill's remarks at the upfront about emphasizing GSN originals.

    My guess is that GSN's fondest fantasy would be to get last year's (or at least recent) Wheel of Fortune tp spruce up weekday mornings. But that's probably pure fantasy as long as Sony zealously guards Pat and Vanna.
