Losing contestants were sucked off the set in their leather recliners and don’t forget the final challenge – naming music videos from clips played on a pile of TVs.
Hosts: Dick Clark (1973-1988), Bill Cullen (1974-1979), John Davidson (1991-1992), Donny Osmond (2002-2004) Years on TV: 1973-1988; 1991-1992; 2002-2004 Whether it was ,000 or 0,000, the set for Pyramid was a killer – those monitors for the clues and of course, the ultimate final pyramid challenge with the fenced in “winner’s circle” and the cubes that revealed each correct answer in the pyramid. Host: Ben Stein Years on TV: 1997 – 2003 Who would’ve thought that lawyer and presidential speechwriter Ben Stein would be a worthy host and competitor on a Comedy Central game show?
Hosted by super cheeseball Marc Summers (he of the Cosby sweaters), kids were put through their paces with trivia questions and physical challenges. Host: Peter Tomarken Years on TV: 1983-1986 Any game show where eager contestants shout out “Big bucks! ” has to make the list, despite the dorky animated “Whammy” character that took away contestants’ cash and prizes.Check out this video of some whammy highlights: Host: Jack Bailey Years on TV: 1947–1964; 1969–1970 An oldie for sure, but in its day, Queen for a Day allowed women to escape their everyday drudgery and become royalty (if only for a day) when the audience voted the biggest sob story with the applause meter.Hosts: Chuck Woolery (1983-1995), Pat Bullard (1998-1999) Years on TV: 1983-1995; 1998-1999 Super-suave Chuck Woolery hosted Love Connection, a different take on The Dating Game, where contestants would select their match from three potential dates.The audience voted on which date they thought was the perfect match and the contestant would reveal his/her choice.And No, I do not know any of the characters or actors at all, but I just want to send in my comments due to the ratings I saw for this season.
I am a very conservative person, not a smoker, drinker or drug user, so this show is my escape from the stressful living from day-to-day work.
The Dating Game saw a variety of hosts through the years but ended with the big cheese of game show hosts himself, Chuck Woolery.
Host: Ken Ober Years on TV: 1987 – 1990 This MTV game show classic combined pop culture with quirky host Ken Ober, a unique format and a set that was supposed to be Ken’s mom’s basement.
David and Natalie are both very easy to watch, and were the perfect fit for the show.
I like their energy and applaud the producers, editors, directors and all others who brought this season's show to the success that I see it as.
Chuck’s interview of the couple’s date provided some of the best moments – especially when the dates were a total disaster.
