BUZZR Celebrates One-Year Anniversary With Exclusive Programming

On this day in 2015, FremantleMedia North America launched the much-anticipated retro game show digital subchannel, BUZZR. Now available in over 65 percent of U.S. households since its debut, BUZZR will be celebrating its first anniversary all month long with a special birthday bash. Today, the network will be airing special milestones of classic game shows including I’ve Got A Secret, Dawson’s Family Feud, Press Your Luck, Super Password, To Tell The Truth and What’s My Line. As a special bonus, BUZZR will be airing the 1987 pilot of the Combs version of Family Feud along with the show’s first anniversary episode. That’s only the beginning of BUZZR’s big birthday bash. Take a look below at what the network has in store for its loyal viewers in June. 

New-To-Network Episodes of Let’s Make A Deal  The first show to air on BUZZR was the 1963 pilot of Let’s Make A Deal. Beginning this month, BUZZR will be rolling out 80 episodes of The All New Let’s Make A Deal from 1985.

Nothing But The Truth Pilot Surfaces – On June 12, BUZZR will be airing a special marathon of To Tell The Truth to reintroduce the inquisitive format to viewers who might be tuning into the premiere of the latest incarnation of the series on June 14 on ABC. The marathon will also include the original, unaired 1956 pilot of the show, briefly titled Nothing But The Truth, hosted by Mike Wallace. 

Match Game/Family Feud Blocks On June 20, BUZZR will be hosting a week-long block of Match Game and Dawson’s version of Celebrity Family Feud, including episodes featuring cast members from Leave It To Beaver and The Brady Bunch competing for charity.

BUZZR Birthday Scratchers Game – Although today is the last day for the three-day giveaway contest, BUZZR is giving viewers a chance to enter and win daily prizes. Go to for more information on how you can obtain your digital scratcher. 

There are now 67 local affiliate stations (and counting) currently carrying BUZZR including all top 10 television markets. Denver, Sacramento and Cleveland are some of the cities who have recently launched BUZZR in their area. Cable providers including Time Warner, Comcast, Verizon and Charter have also opened the door for more viewers to check out the network thanks to BUZZR’s expanding partnership with their broadcast partners. BUZZR’s one-year celebration also ties into the 75th anniversary of television game shows, as Truth or Consequences was the first game show to air on broadcast television in 1941.
