Monty Hall will be the focus of a marathon that will include rare episodes of “Tattletales” featuring the iconic TV game show host appearing as a contestant along with his wife, Marilyn. The two “Tattletales” episodes will be shown along with episodes of “Let’s Make a Deal” and “The All-New Beat the Clock” hosted by Monty Hall in the tribute running this Saturday, Oct. 7, on the digital multicast network Buzzr.
The programming move follows strong response to Buzzr’s initial Monty Hall tribute that aired Monday, Buzzr announced. Hall died Sept. 30 at 96.
Saturday’s tribute begins at 11:30 a.m. ET and runs through Sunday, Oct. 8, at 2 a.m. ET.
Buzzr, owned by FremantleMedia North America, premiered on June 1, 2015. “In celebration of the network launch, Buzzr kicked off by airing the original 1963 pilot episode of ‘Let’s Make a Deal,’ Buzzr notes in its announcement. “This was the first time since the initial broadcast that the pilot aired in prime time. To supplement this historical broadcast, Buzzr aired exclusive clips from a sitdown interview with the original ‘Let’s Make a Deal’ host, Monty Hall, and current host, Wayne Brady. In a rare and exclusive interview, the two hosts took an intimate look back at the show and discussed on set bloopers and their craziest contestants.”
