Status: Partially Lost

From May 3rd, 2004 to May 7th, 2004,[1] the game show Hollywood Squares had a contest week called "It Just Ain't Right". It plays like a spot the difference for viewers to tell seven things that feel out of place in that week's episodes than a regular episode of Hollywood Squares from that time. It was also the only week of episodes with a home viewer contest attached to it and was also the last unique themed week before the show's cancellation on May 31st, 2004. Although like most episodes from this version of Hollywood Squares have turned up online, only three of five episodes from that week have turned up online and two episodes are missing.

Youtube user thewhammy83 uploaded the first three episodes from that week on April 1st, 2010 and stated in the description of the third part of the Wednesday episode that due to bad reception at the time, he was only able to record the last ten minutes of the Thursday episode and he doesn't have the Friday episode. Despite saying he has the last ten minutes of the Thursday episode, he did not upload it because he says "which seems unfair to just put up". These episodes have never been reran on Game Show Network and it's unknown who else has the last two episodes in their entirety and as of the writing if this article, remains the only episodes from this incarnation of Hollywood Squares to have missing episodes.
