Oooooo....I just found a new vintage game show channel. I am watching John Forsythe and Barbara Hale on Password. Wow, John Forsythe was HOT. I watched Concentration earlier today. Loved that show. What's My Line was on just a little bit ago. The guest was Art Carney. (before my time but fun to watch)

It might be helpful to others if you actually mentioned the name of the network. I assume you are talking about Buzzr. If Buzzr is not carried in your local area you can watch it free online:

BUZZR

I think that is it but I had only seen it a couple of times so I didn't know what network it was.

I like the real old shows from the fifties : I've Got a Secret , What's My Line and all.....It is
wonderful seeing the real old (mostly) New York celebrities such as Dorothy Kilgallen , Bennett
Cerf , Henry Morgan & all. All of these people dressed up for the show and were truly relics of
that long ago time when people on television were refined and mannerly (at least on the show ).

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.

I like watching Match Game with Gene Rayburn from the 70's. I watched this show in the 70's and remember many of the episodes. Everyone on the panal is great and there is such a relaxed energy back then, slower pace, remember the time period well and really miss it.

Also, like Concentration, Blockbusters, Sale of the Century.

All I ever see on BUZZR is 70s-era Match Game. I love What's My Line, but it's on at 3 a.m. It would be nice if they mixed it up a bit, instead of showing hours and hours and hours of Match Game.

Game Show Network (GSN) used to rely on a mix of old and new game shows, but over time they phased out all but a few of the classics. They air Match Game in a two-hour block in the mornings and another hour in early afternoon, and I love it. As GSN tried (and still tries) to produce new, gimmicky game shows to appeal to younger audiences, the older shows are still the most watchable. My only concern is that they seem to keep repeating the same 1973-4 episodes and 1977 episodes, skipping the period of 1975-76 and everything in the post-Richard Dawson era. The "Match Game PM" episodes are also on a shelf somewhere, which is a shame. Maybe this Buzzr channel obtained the rights to certain batches of episodes and left the rest to GSN?

Well, I have seen it during the day. I definitely wasn't up at 3 am watching game shows.
