Going back to the very beginning this time, I see. This would be the first time the 1982-83 season has aired on GSN since 2001.
Was this know at the time when it was formerly known as "The New $25,000 Pyramid" just to avoid confusion with the original 1974 syndication version with Bill Cullen?
Yep.. for the 1st weeks, the word "New" wasn't in the title.. it was added because people thought "Oh, they're airing the 70s syndie version again" instead of brand new eps. Mon-Fri..
That's what I sort of thought Gregory Pearsoll.
To all who are looking for Sale of the Century, look on Fremantle's Buzzr channel (usually a digital sub-channel of your Fox Station.) They have shown Sale of the Century there.Yet not Scrabble, which was produced by the same Fremantle subsidiary. (Has Hasbro refused them rights to air the show?)
They'd have to go through Hasbro and Fremantle to get the rights to air Scrabble, yes
the blue trilon episodes!!!
Maybe classics aren't doomed afterall?
Well they just replaced one classic with another.
True but this means they either renewed the lease or signed a new one
"Maybe classics aren't doomed afterall?"Not for now-since we have a fresh lease of The $25,000 Pyramid that should be around for at least a year, if not two.My best guess is GSN executives were not thrilled with Card Sharks ratings at 3 airings within two hours and also realized viewers want pre-1990's still in the mornings, not 2000's shows like Lingo.
I'm guessing they are hoping for a boost from Strahan Pyramid.
Well, at least we're back to 1982 for Episode 1 of The New $25,000 Pyramid.
