    Wasn't GSN at one time showing the old Tic Tac Dough shows?

    Jokers Wild with Jack Berry, Great show!

    A couple more game shows I wouldn't mind seeing again:

    Liars Club
    To Tell the Truth

    Ah! Here's one! If I never see it again that'll be cool, but this is a trivia question I've never had the opportunity to ask...until NOW! After Happy Days, Ron Howard starred in another half hour drama/comedy. Does anyone remember the name of the show (without using google!)?

    I know he was the narrator for Arrested Development but that was long after Happy Days.

    I remember NBC promoting how Ron Howard was coming to NBC after Happy Days but I am not sure if hat was as a star or director..

    Yes, GSN used to run "Tic Tac Dough," "The Joker's Wild," and "To Tell the Truth," but they apparently weren't getting the ratings (and they wanted to concentrate on newer/original game shows). Although, actually, I wouldn't be surprised if "To Tell the Truth" shows up again as part of a late-late-night one-hour block of black-and-white shows that keeps going on and off the GSN lineup.

    They also used to run old episodes of "The Price Is Right" (both the '50s/'60s version with Bill Cullen and '70s/'80s Bob Barker episodes), but apparently, the current owners of the show are no longer willing to license the reruns to GSN because they don't want to distract from the current episodes on CBS.

    Ron Howard though only did one or two guest appearances on Laverne and Shirley (that I remember) and that would have been early on in the shows run plus I believe Laverne and Shirley was canceled prior to Happy Days.

    At least GSN still runs the old "Match Game".

    Maybe we need a classic game shows thread.

    Love to see "Guestward Ho" back! Though I suppose these days it might be a bit "misconstrued" as a title. Actually, I just want to see Joanne Dru in a tight sweater again. It made lots of little boys feel "funny"...

    Ok, crowd source time gang. What was the TV show with a big cast, around 1963-64. And it's theme was like "Big Country" or something (I know, that was a western). But this was about the modern West, Colorado or something, and it was kind of a Dallas-style soap opera with this gorgeous woman and her family and business and stuff, there were giant ranches and big sky and all this intrigue. But for the life of me, can't recall the name. It was an expensive, pretty high-profile show, too. It' was like "The Big West" or something.

    Must have the period wrong, there's nothing in that period like that.

    A GREAT show in around '64 was East Side/West Side with George C. Scott. About a brutally underfunded hospital in NYC. Startlingly honest and fresh show for the time. And could be very darkly funny, a trait way ahead of its time.

    Are you talking about "The Big Valley" with Barbara Stanwyck, Linda Evans, Richard Long, Lee Majors, etc. ?

    It had the scope of the Big Valley but that was an old West period show, right? Barbara Stanwyck.

    IIRC that show was based on the movie The Hospital which George C. Scott was in along with Dianna Rigg and Barnard Hughes.

    This thread caused me to search Netflix. Today I watched the first 4 episodes of Have Gun, Will Travel on Netflix Instant. 4 down, 35 to go for season 1. :lol: And guess what? A 30 minute episode has 25 minutes of the program. The first season of Rockford Files is in the queue. I've also watched the first episode of a British detective program A Touch of Frost from 1992. Fawlty Towers is in the queue also. And there will be many more.
