A Game Show Rebirth?
I love game shows! Growing up in the 1970’s and 1980’s it seemed like game shows were everywhere! Just off the top of my head, I remember watching The Price Is Right, Wheel Of Fortune, Family Feud, $25,000 Pyramid and many more. Do you remember The Match Game, Card Sharks, Press Your Luck, Hollywood Squares, Password, Let’s Make A Deal, and many more?
I have the Game Show Network and I noticed that some of the classic game shows have been revamped. There is a new version of Pyramid and The Newlywed Game. Is this the beginning of the rebirth of the game show? I hope so!
Some iconic game shows have been on the air for over 40 years. Merv Griffin created Jeopardy and The Wheel Of Fortune. The Wheel Of Fortune started as a daytime show in 1975 on NBC with host Chuck Woolery and Susan Stafford. Pat Sajak and Vanna White have been with the show since 1981 and 1982 respectively. The Price Is Right came on CBS in 1972 with Bob Barker hosting until 2007 and Drew Carey since then. Family Fued has been on the air off and on starting in 1976 with Richard Dawson, now hosted by Steve Harvey. Let’s Make A Deal started in 1963 with Monty Hall and is back with Wayne Brady as it’s host.
So many great game shows over the years. What were your favorites and which one would you like to be on?
