Trivia / Blackout

For the game show:

  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Typical for a Wolpert show- CBS themselves would likely own the rights now (original co-producer Taft Entertainment Television having been absorbed into Worldvision Enterprises, which was merged into Paramount Television in 1999, which in turn CBS took with them during the CBS/Viacom split of 2005), but they haven't done anything with them.
  • Screwed by the Network: More like outside influences (though there's a rumor going around that CBS set up Blackout to take the fall for cancelling Pyramid so they could get both out of the way to air Family Feud).
