The Match Game/Hollywood Squares Hour is an unmitigated disaster. I can't believe Mark Goodson was involved with this train wreck.

Here’s the bonus game I came up with while watching last night, to keep it a Q&A show all the way through.

4 questions in the bonus round. To win the car your first day you would need all 4 correct answers. 2nd day only need 3. 3rd day two. 4th day just one. If you go 0/4 on that try, if you win the 5th day we just give you the car, no questions asked.

Your bonus round would be a good improvement.

I just bumped into this show and do enjoy it. Never saw it before for it must have been on in its heyday in the mornings when I was working. Monte Hall is good host.

With each additional game won by the same contestant the odds of winning a car would increase going from a 1 in 5 chance to a 1in 4 chance etc. .If a contestant 5 games they could pick any of the 5 cars on stage as the winning prize.

When the 86 version started it was one car and the contestant picked the numbered tile (1-5) the car was behind. As the weeks went past, other elements were added overcomplicating the process.
"We'll see how long that lasts".

Then it was moved from weekdays to Sunday nights, then to Saturday and Sunday late mornings, as of today gone altogether.

Split Second isn't gone. I just watched the 10:30AM and 11AM airings, it has that hour on Saturdays and Sundays now. Split Second replaced what used to be E/I shows there, Buzzr only airs E/I in the 10AM half hour on weekends now.

Thanks, my cable system did not have it listed for Saturday or Sunday. I have BZZR on an over the air station, I hope they aren't running local content at that time.
