  • Notes

    • (1) MORE ABOUT TONIGHT'S "WML?" SPONSOR: While Bristol-Myers corporation, the maker of Bufferin, is sponsoring "WML?" for the first time tonight, this is not the first time they have sponsored a Goodson-Todman show. During the 1959-1960 period, the company had alternated with Winston cigarettes as sponsors of "I've Got a Secret." When "IGAS" episodes from that period were aired by GSN in the spring of 2006, prior to the debut of the newer version of "IGAS," only the Bristol-Myers sponsored episodes were shown, because of the channel's ban on showing episodes of old game shows sponsored by cigarette makers.
      (2) "LIVE" WATCH: Tonight's edition is the 42nd known surviving kinescope of a live broadcast to cut the word "live" out of the intro.
      (3) "WML?" OVERLAY FONT WATCH: For the second straight week, News Gothic Bold is the overlay typeface used for occupations and mystery guest names. As was mentioned in the notes to the previous EPISODE #755, this font pointed to the future as it would come to be used for overlays (and also the end credits) on the syndicated "WML?"
      (4) Following GSN's November 27, 2006 airing of this episode, the channel aired a rare surviving episode of the 1962-1969 NBC version of "The Match Game" which was originally aired on July 28, 1964. The black & white vintage episode featured Jayne Mansfield and Orson Bean as the celebrity panelists. The only things this version and the raunchier 1973-1979 CBS incarnation (and its parallel syndicated run which aired in various forms from 1975 until 1982) had in common, outside of their both being Goodson-Todman productions, were host Gene Rayburn and announcer Johnny Olson. This broadcast was likely shown because the evening before, GSN premiered its special The Real Match Game Story: Behind the Blank -- a retrospective documenting the program's history and featuring rare interviews. - W-B (2006)
