• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Two-hour Game Show programming block (2:00-4:00 AM) on Game Show Network from 2001-06. Consisted of three classic shows shown in 40-minute timeslots, typically What's My Line and I've Got a Secret plus one of the following:

Notable for GSN, at least for most of the run, airing Winston-sponsored Secret episodes during this timeslor; prior to this, the Winston-sponsored episodes were banned due to the heavy use of said Winston logos on-set. The ban went back into effect around 2004 when the block itself was reduced to two games aired in regular 30-minute timeslots, and the "Overnite" title slowly phased out.

For the most part, episodes would be run in order except for special theme weeks, or if a noted celebrity died. In such a case, episodes featuring that person would run in the time slots with a special slide noting the passing aired directly before and after it. The "monochrome-only" rule was bent for this practice, allowing episodes from the syndicated What's My Line? and Beat the Clock as was needed.

The following tropes are common to many or all entries in the Black and White Overnite franchise.
