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! :) ........
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." :)
#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! :))

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! :)
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

:laugh: 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.
