For the Game Show:

  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Reruns of the NBC version aired on CBN and USA, and on GSN. GSN got up to episode 75, skipping 13 of them along the way. Rumor has it the 13 that were skipped don't exist anymore, but they were shown on CBN and USA.
    • GSN played a handful of USA episodes before yanking the series.
  • Screwed by the Network: NBC president and CEO Fred Silverman was swift to can the original series after six months in favor of The David Letterman Show (High Rollers and The Hollywood Squares also fell victim to Silverman's purge). A year later, Silverman was given the pink slip due to repeated programming failures (including Letterman) and was replaced by MTM Enterprises co-founder and president Grant Tinker.
