* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Wink Martindale uploaded on his Youtube page [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTXrEcpBXGk a pitchfilm]] for a syndicated revival from 2001. Tom Arnold would've hosted, the format was classic Gong, and was intended to air late nights. It didn't get off the ground, though. Sony tried again in 2003; this was pitched to Creator/TheWB with [[TheRoast Jeffery Ross]] as host; didn't work.

* HeyItsThatGuy: More people than we could list here. A ''partial'' list would include the likes Creator/SteveMartin and Creator/DavidLetterman (who made appearances as panelists), and Gary Owens (who hosted the first season of the syndicated edition).
