    Let's all vote for favorite/best game shows and hosts.
    Let's make it your Top 3 (or just your 1 fave if you prefer).
    For the hosts, I'll vote for these three playful emcees! [​IMG] ........
    1.) Bob Barker (Game Show KING of Kings!)
    2.) Bud Collyer
    3.) Bill Cullen
    --------------------------------------------
    THE #1 GREATEST all-time game show was What's My Line? ... the original B&W version, that is, with the great John Daly as panel moderator (1950-1967). ..... "Six down and four to go....and we go to Miss Kilgallen." [​IMG]
    #2 on my list is .... Password (with Allen Ludden).
    #3 = To Tell The Truth (classic Collyer B&W version, natch. Polly Bergen was a riot! [​IMG])

    Y'know, funny thing is, I probably wouldn't have noticed this if you hadn't posted that sarcastic aside to the audience...good strategy! [​IMG]
    My favoritest shows:
    Jeopardy!
    Press Your Luck (that's the one with the "whammy's", right?)
    Iron Chef
    Umm...if that last one doesn't count, just pretend I typed "Who Wants To Win Ben Stein's Money?"...
    Favorite hosts:
    Regis Philbin
    Bob Barker
    Wink Martindale

    [​IMG] It's alright...you still get the home game...
    I think Millionaire was it, although according to IMdB, he was a field interviewer for "Almost Anything Goes". Does that count as "hostly"?

    Anybody remember David Letterman's stint as game-show host?

    Game Show Network aired an episode (probably the one and only ep.) of it a few years ago.

    Game shows:
    Press Your Luck - Just the most bizarre game show, but it was addicting
    The Price is Right - This is such a fixture of the television gaming industry that I can't imaging television without it
    Family Feud
    Game Show Hosts
    Bob Barker - Defines the unflappable and charismatic host
    Richard Dawson - Seeing him kid around with the male guests and grope the female guests was a laugh riot.
    Chuck Woolery - The guy had no other talents as best I could tell, but he had a good sense of humor.
    Worst - Pat Sajak. This guy has no personality whatsoever. I can't stand the show largely because of him. Of course, Vanna seems less vacuous in comparison.

    Of course, the best Game Show Host is Kuni from Wheel of Fish.
