To celebrate the revival of Fremantle’s two show in the lineup (Match Game and Family Feud), Buzzr, Fremantle’s retro game show network (click here to find it in your area), will give fans a special look at the classic formats all week leading up to the series premieres.

If you missed it the first time, the episodes will re-air 11:00PM ET to 1:00AM ET. The celebration culminates on Saturday, June 25th, with a marathon from 11:00AM ET to 7:00AM ET the following morning recapping the entire week.
