You can play along with rare classic game shows all this week from 8-10 pm ET/PT on over-the-air channel Buzzr.

Tonight’s first installment of Buzzr’s “Lost and Found” features shows hosted by Gene Rayburn: Make the Connection (1955), Choose Up Sides (1956), and the first episode of the original Match Game (1962). To fit in both original and new commercials, each episode runs 40 minutes.

Here, recorded off the air on December 5, 1962, is the premiere of The Match Game:

Another “Lost and Found” highlight is Nothing but the Truth (1956), the original pilot for To Tell the Truth, a series which has now run in some form or another over seven decades. Hosted by future news legend Mike Wallace, and with Dick Van Dyke as a panelist, you can catch this gem Friday at 9:20 pm on Buzzr — or stream it right here:

  1. During one of my High School classes, one of my teachers once shared with our class that he and his wife were contestants on a game show called
    “For Love Or Money”.
    Ever heard of this show? It was probably make in the late 60’s … early seventy’s.
