Remember back in August GSN aired specials called Play it Back 70's, Play it Back 80's and Play it Back 90's? I wish they would show those again as a special this summer. Those are the types of GSN specials that usually do well for the network. Down the road GSN should do a Pyramid special, a special with The Newlywed Game and a special of Chuck Woolery and leasing some of his game shows. I would watch those
Also, generally speaking: in the earliest episodes of $25k, the set was a bit darker and the winner's circle boxes were blue instead of white.
PDFs through June 3rd are up at Casey's blog now. All $25k Pyramid airings even in the new PDFs still have "new" listed in the episode number slot, with no celebrities indicated. It's looking like we'll just have to wait and tune in next Monday at 10:30 AM and find out for ourselves what the story is.
One thing I will say is pretty certain is that whatever episodes come up on Monday, unless something else changes, they will likely air those episodes for 3 years or so if it is like the last lease of 25k Pyramid.
That looks like what we will have to do is wait till Monday. We may be pleasantly surprised, or some people are going to be uber pissed.
If this actually happens, this will be a "historic" year for GSN when it comes to classics in recent history. Within a period of six months we've gotten Super Password, Password Plus, and possibly a new season of The $25,000 Pyramid. I bet we'll get another lease on something later this year.
