Cozi TV, the classic television digital specialty network that launched in January, is adding a few new shows this month: The Name of the Game and Run for Your Life. While neither of these shows are obscure, they aren’t nearly as well-known as most of the shows (The Six Million Dollar Man, Charlie’s Angels, Marcus Welby, M.D., Magnum, P.I.) Cozi TV has been airing to date.
The Name of the Game debuts tomorrow (Friday, August 2nd) from 3-4:30AM but based on television listings through mid-August will air primarily from 3:30-5AM most days of the week. Run for Your Life, on the other hand, has been given a regular weekday time slot. Starting Monday (August 5th) it will air from 11AM-12PM with an evening episode on Fridays from 11PM-12AM.
Both shows originally aired on NBC; Cozi TV is owned by NBCUniversal. Run for Your Life, which ran for three seasons and 85 episodes from 1965 to 1968, was last seen on television a few years ago on Retro Television Network (now known as Retro TV). But The Name of the Game, which ran for three seasons and 76 episodes from 1968 to 1971, has not been seen on television since the late 1990s when it aired on Encore Mystery.
I am also seeing in the Cozi TV listings something called “Dramatic Anthologies” which consists of episodes of anthology series from the 1950s like Four Star Playhouse and The Star and the Story. Two episodes are scheduled to air this Sunday (August 4th) and another two next Sunday (August 11th).
