Legendary TV game show host Monty Hall, who died Saturday of heart failure at age 96, will be honored by GSN with a marathon of the show Hall hosted for 23 years, “Let’s Make a Deal.”
The six-hour marathon is set for this Sunday, Oct. 8, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET.
“Episodes from the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s will be part of the marathon, including the first-ever episode, from December 30, 1963,” GSN said in announcing the special programming event. “Known for its surprising deals and the outlandish costumes potential contestants would don to attract Hall’s attention, ‘Let’s Make a Deal’ has continued to run largely uninterrupted to the present day. Hall hosted the show for almost 5,000 episodes through its airing on two different networks and then in syndication in the 1980s.”
