BUZZR to pay tribute to 'Let's Make A Deal' legend Monty Hall

BUZZR has put together a special tribute to honor Monty Hall, the legendary host of "Let's Make A Deal," who passed this week at the age of 93. Beginning at 8:00 AM ET/5:00 AM PT on Tuesday, October 3rd, BUZZR will air a special marathon of retro episodes of "Let’s Make A Deal" and "The All-New Beat the Clock" the Hall hosted.  

"Let’s Make A Deal," premiered in 1963 with Monty serving as the host.  Throughout the show, a number of deals were offered to contestants, who then attempted to trade items and/or “make a deal” for prizes with the possibility of winning something more valuable, all while running the risk of being awarded a worthless piece of junk called a "Zonk."  

BUZZR aired exclusive clips from a sit down interview with the original Let’s Make A Deal host, Monty Hall, and current host, Wayne Brady back it 2015, the network's debut year.  The two hosts took an intimate look back at the show and discussed on set bloopers and their craziest contestants. 

"The All-New Beat the Clock," with Hall hosting began in 1979.  The show was a revival of the original "Beat the Clock" series in which pairs of contestants were required to perform wild and crazy tasks as they raced against the clock.  Rather than requiring brain and muscle power, the tasks often required physical dexterity and a lack of inhabitation, combined with a bit of luck. Contestants who were able to beat the clock went home with fabulous cash and prizes.

BUZZR’s special tribute to Monty Hall will begin airing, Tuesday, October 3rd beginning at 8:00 a.m. ET and will conclude on Wednesday, October 4th at 2:00 a.m. ET.  Included in the tribute will be a special airing of the original 1963 pilot of "Let’s Make A Deal" at 8:00 p.m. ET, and again at 11:00 p.m. ET.
