GSN to Air 'Let's Make a Deal' Marathon to Honor Monty Hall on 10/8
GSN announced today it will celebrate the work of TV icon Monty Hall with a 6-hour marathon of "Let's Make a Deal" on Sunday, October 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. 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 1980's.
