    No, you are correct, as I saw it myslef on a dealer bulletin.
    It is going to be on dual-feed for a week, then it will be removed from 309.

    Hmm. On my HR20-700, I need to do trick play for the audio and video to show on both GSN channels. No need for any other SD channels or HD channels that I can find. Other DVRs are fine.

    Sherman...
    They did show TPIR reruns for a few years (even the original 1950s-1960s version with Bill Cullen), but can't get them anymore -- the company that owns TPIR apparently decided having reruns on GSN was detracting from the first-run episodes on CBS.

    If they air them at night or on weekends, I don't see why it detracts (except to show that Bob Barker is far superior to Drew Carey). Plus you have so many people not home during the day anyhow to watch it. The show itself, except for the host, is basically the same now as it was in the 70s.

    And yes, Jokers Wild would be a great addition. Basically a poor and dumber man's Jeopardy with a slot machine thrown in.

    Didn't TechTV died four years ago? I loved TechTv! :(

    Bill Cullen was a class act back in the day. Is he still living?

    He died of lung cancer in 1990. Indeed, he was a class act...always very low-key, considerate and not wrapped up in himself like so many others were/are.

    Give me "Treasure Hunt" with Geoff Edwards!

    Or "Who Dares Wins" from Australia. It used to be on GSN, and was awesome!

    Carey rocks. And he's not nearly as creepy interacting with the models.

    TJW consistently ranks high in viewer surveys and rankings, but is said to have been the lowest-rated program on GSN every time it's been run. While current rightsholder Sony Pictures Entertainment is still a GSN co-owner, it's unclear if GSN currently retains a license to air the show. It hasn't run in a very long time and is no longer listed on the corporate website as part of the channel's "Acquired Programming". (Then again, neither is CARD SHARKS, and that airs about thirty times a day...)
