In the Chicago market, it seemed quite a few syndicated game shows got passed up. Among the game shows passed on were the 1973-78 syndicated Concentration with Jack Narz, the original Crosswitts, the syndicated 1974-75 Jeopardy, Bullseye, the 1985 syndicated Tom Kennedy Price Is Right. The 1985-88 syndicated $100,000 Pyramid wasn't picked up until its third season on WPWR 50 in the fall of 1987 and the syndicated Bill Rafferty Card Sharks aired a full year behind.
When I lived in Dallas (1976-79) we didn't get any of the syndicated
daily game shows (To Tell The Truth, Concentration, Crosswits, Liars
Club, etc.) except for The Dating Game and (IIRC) The Newlywed Game.
Yet we did get practically all the weekly syndicated games (this is when
many stations programmed a different show in access time each night):
Hollywood Squares, Name That Tune, Match Game PM, The Price Is Right,
$25,000 Pyramid. By the early '80s, however, Family Feud was on KDFW/4
at 6:30 (Central) and Tic Tac Dough was on KXAS/5 (WFAA/8 had PM Magazine).
