* ScrewedByTheNetwork: The US version suffered from the crowded syndication market that felled many other shows over the years; the then-new Lorimar-Telepictures had an "insurance policy" in place for stations, ''Perfect Match'', hosted by [[Series/{{Blackout}} Bob]] [[Series/WheelOfFortune Goen]]. And the UK version initially got screwed over by TVS' loss of broadcasting rights, only for Carlton (the replacement for Thames on London weekdays) to rescue it and run it until 2002 (though the move to daytime is where the series started slipping).



** Before that, Pasetta had tried to revive it in 1987 as ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7V4Ei39uCg&t=37s Puzzle Roulette]]'', and again in 1989 as ''The Puzzle Game''. [[Series/BullseyeUS Jim]] [[Series/TheDatingGame Lange]] hosted these attempts.
