Yep, that's right. The first new daytime network game show in 15 years. Well, not exactly 'new' but the return of a classic with Wayne Brady hosting.

The show will be taped in Vegas.

Starting October 5.

 What's the old saying: The Lord never turns off a light without opening a door, or something like that? 

In all seriousness, I hope this does well. It should unless the production company mangles it beyond recognition.

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then. And while you're at it, PLEASE stop dropping DVD/laserdisc extras from Blu-ray releases of other films.

Well, I liked the show when Hall led it, and I like Wayne Brady.  I guess this means Don't Forget the Lyrics is a goner.  Dang.

I once read an article about the original show where they had an incident where one of the "Zonk" Prizes was actually worth MORE than "The Big Deal of the Day" (Which in those days was usually a New Car such as a Chevy Impala). A Contestant had the misfortune of choosing a curtain with the "Zonk" Prize, which was a Conestoga Wagon. (AKA "Prairie Schooner".)  Contestants were offered "Reasonable" Substitutions for these gags (I believe about $100.00 at the time - 1960s) however this contestant ran a Day-Camp for Kids, and he figured the kids would love to have this wagon to play in. Then it was found out the wagon was the real deal, and it had been on loan from a California Museum, which had it insured for $25,000.00! (Nearly 5 times what a Luxery Car went for in those days!). They ended up giving the Man the Money.
