I haven't seen these programs shown in a while. I guess they only appeal to those of us who are
old enough to remember them.
And don't forget To Tell the Truth, another favorite.
Had no idea that Dorothy Kilgallen had a drinking problem back then.
Arlene Francis, Bill Cullen, and Johnny Carson were also panelists on these shows. You'd also get guests who were appearing on Broadway at the time.

You can watch them on Buzzr during evening and daytime hours.

Supermarket Sweep is in the rotation. That's entertaining on a whole different level.

From what I gather, Buzzr is very similar in programming to what Game Show Network was like when it was first launched back around 1995. Back then, GSN aired everything from old black and white episodes of I've Got A Secret and What's My Line?, to obscure programs like Whew! and Treasure Hunt, to the classics like Match Game, Press Your Luck, and early season episodes of Alex Trebek's Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune back when contestants would shop for prizes after solving a puzzle. Am I accurate in guessing Buzzr is similar to that?

I enjoy watching BUZZR daily. Some of my favorites are:

Classic Concentration (Alex Trebek)
Password Plus (Allen Ludden)
Password (Allen Ludden)
Blockbusters (Bill Cullen)
Family Fued (Ray Combs)
Supermarket Sweep (David Ruprecht)
Press Your Luck (Peter Tomarken)
Super Password (Allen Ludden/Bill Cullen)
Tattletales (Bert Convy)


If they add a couple more shows, it would be perfect.

Scrabble (Chuck Woolery) & Hollywood Squares (John Davidson)

John Davidson's Hollywood Squares was highly underrated. Joan Rivers in the center square, Jm J Bullock, Charo, Stuart Pankin, and Shadoe Stevens (who was also the announcer) in the squares among many others.
