I would hazard to guess that the renewal is more about the pandemic's effect on the inability to develop new programming rather than any perceived commitment from CBS to this particular show. Given that the panel has been decimated, there are few guests, and even fewer informational segments, the show is obviously on its last legs. However, there's nothing waiting in the proverbial wings to take its slot and even CBS wouldn't revert to form from the 80s and show primetime reruns in daytime.
I wish they've talked more about the remote with the cable cars which they briefly touched on and Marland changing Daryl as the killer. They could've gone another half hour. The good reunions are the ones that fly. This one did. Some drag and are so boring because the right topics aren't covered and the actor is mum and doesn't say much.
