Did they do them like GCW did them? Tape them Saturday morning then air them that Saturday night or did they tape two or three weeks worth at one taping?

I think for the most part JCP taped the show that Sat. morning and it then aired that evening.

I believe Ole's post Black Saturday promotion (Championship Wrestling from Georgia) taped two weeks worth of shows every other Wed. and then aired them the next two Saturday mornings. The final two shows were taped under Crockett and the last CWG show aired the same day that JCP took over the Sat. evening WCW slot.

The next week CWG was replaced with "Championship Wrestling", which I think was taped the same morning as WCW (same set except they took off the "World") but didn't air until the following Saturday.

I attended a show there in Summer of 86. The way they did it then was they taped two shows on Saturday morning in a 3 hour taping. One of the shows was that night's 2 hour show and the other was next Saturday's 1 hour morning show.  Problem was, they told us at the beginning of the taping that the 2 hour Saturday night show was pre-empted (I think it was the Braves), so we only got to see the next week's morning show.
