** Season 1 of the Woolery version hasn't been aired on a regular basis since 2005, [[ObviousBeta presumably due to its blatantly low production values]]. However, ever since the Engvall version tanked, GSN has been [[OldShame extremely hesitant in airing either of their versions]] despite lesser-received originals like Series/ChainReaction and Series/{{Whammy}} still receiving regular spots on their schedule; the Woolery version in particular has only returned to GSN's schedule '''twice''' since 2012, once for a cycle of Seasons 4-6 and about half of Season 3 in 2014, and once for a near-complete cycle of Seasons 3-6 in 2016. As a result of this, no Season 2 episodes have been aired since 2012.

* TroubledProduction: The original version had financial issues which led to several contestants never getting paid. In fact, Michael Reagan left the show as a result of this, not because of money, but because he feared that it was tarnishing the reputation of his father, UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan, who was already smarting politically from the Iran-Contra affair and from Black Monday of 1987.
