      • FLIP REPORT: John flipped the remaining cards for the final game, a pair of contestants, at eight down because time ran out. The panel had gotten close, but was unable to exactly determine what was, admittedly, a rather difficult line to guess. - agent_0042 (2008)

      • (1) "WML?" SPONSOR WATCH: Tonight, the main sponsor is Helene Curtis, for the fifth consecutive week in this stretch.
        (2) MORE ABOUT THE GUEST: Frank Wayne, one of the two stunt coordinators for the 1950-1958 Bud Collyer-hosted CBS version of "Beat the Clock," in later years became an important cog in the wheel of Goodson-Todman Productions. Mr. Wayne was executive producer of the CBS version of "Password" from 1964 until its 1967 cancellation, and also had a hand in the creation of "Match Game" and "Now You See It" (the latter of which, as of the October 30, 2008 airing of this "WML?" episode, served as GSN's lead-in to "WML?" on weeknights). More significantly, Frank Wayne was the first executive producer of the 1972 revival of "The Price Is Right," remaining in that capacity until his death in 1988, after which Bob Barker, the program's host from 1972 until 2007, took over the reins. Frank's son Philip Wayne has also served as a producer of "TPIR."
        (3) "WML?" OVERLAY FONT WATCH: Only the first two contestants of the evening, including jockey Ted Atkinson, had their various overlays set in Futura Demi Bold. Second mystery guest Fernando Lamas' lower-third was set in Futura Medium, while the "Create Stunts for Beat the Clock" overlay of final contestants Frank Wayne and Bob Howard was set in the customary "last-minute" font.
        (4) "WML?" CREDITS CRUNCH WATCH: Following the travel arrangements plug for American Airlines, the complete production crew sequence was shown tonight. But while the end credits were full, the way they were shown by GSN on its October 30, 2008 airing of this episode was in its really scary (in the spirit of Halloween) "crunched" manner.
        (5) "TO THE MOON, ALICE": Following GSN's October 30, 2008 airing of tonight's show, the cable and satellite channel reran the January 17, 1955 edition of "The Name's the Same," hosted by Dennis James. This marked the debut appearance on the panel of Audrey Meadows who, like fellow "TNTS" panelist Hy Gardner, was an alumni of the short-lived and ill-fated "What's Going On?"; the second and most famous of the "Alice Kramdens" in the history of Jackie Gleason's "The Honeymooners" stayed with "TNTS" for the remaining ten months of its run. The balance of the panel, as usual, consisted of Roger Price and Joan Alexander. In later years, there was to be an ironic significance to Miss Meadows' replacing Bess Myerson on the "TNTS" panel -- because in 1959, Bess replaced Audrey's sister, Jayne Meadows, as a panelist on "I've Got a Secret," and remained with "IGAS" until its 1967 cancellation. The celebrity guest on this "TNTS" episode was George Montgomery. It should also be noted that Jerome Schnur has resumed his on-again, off-again directing duties for "TNTS" on this episode, and Mitchell Leiser -- another individual who would later be involved with "IGAS" -- is now the program manager, replacing Doris Hibbard. - W-B (2008)

      • MYSTERY GUEST Fernando Lamas promoted his very first Broadway musical. Although not mentioned, the play was titled "Happy Hunting" which opened December 6, 1956 at the Majestic Theatre and ran for a total of 412 performances. - Suzanne (2005)
