30 more years of the PRice is Right would be OK. Otherwise, noen at all would be ok, too.

Dick Chop Porn Bombardment Super Attack!!! -- Is that a Pokemon thing? "Weenieblendo, I choose you -- use your Bobbit-Slash... Now."

Best game show ever?
The Bridgekeeper scene from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail".

As for all the current offerings?

In the late 1950s and pretty much thru the 1960s there was a program called Queen For A Day, that, made life a bit bearable for some really, really sad case women. Husband looses both legs, can't work, all of the children go blind and Grandma and Grampa move into trailer with the family type stories. We loved to watch that stuff!! Every Day!
If I remember correctly it was even on twice a day for a while!!!
The commentator paraded out four or five women who told their plight and desperation and then a pretty woman or the host went and stood in back of each woman, put his/her hand over each contestant's head as the audience voted which of the woman would be Queen For a Day by applause.
The applause meter, was shown to the viewer in an screen in screen type display.
It was great.
We would vote for which one was the worst case!!

Then, the winner would be chosen she would cry, cry, cry.
Get a bunch of roses, a crown, a robe and a whole shiat load of stuff that shoe would never be able to use.. Like changing the diet of Ethopians to McDonalds or giving dollars to beggars in India type shiat.
I liked that show, so much!!

I would like to see another show like that with the type of people who regualrly appear on Jerry Springer!!
Jerry Springer is a graduate of Tulane University, and, has a really great show!!! Jerry knows a lot about tv, and, what make people watch tv.
Jerry Springer!!

Jerry Springer!!!
judge judyu is where it's at IMHO.
the white trash factor is very slightly lower, but the way the judge "lays the smackdown" is unmatched.

Three words.... Game Show Network.

Jerry doesn't come in clear unless you have the signal amplification afforded by the metal framework and siding of a mobile home.

I'm a court show junkie. They provide endless hours of white trash, mullified, trailer park, hick yellin' fun.

I farking hate these "parody reality shows". They are NEVER funny.

I'm still waiting for a Running Man type of game show. You know -- contestants running for their lives while WWF superstars hunt them down with powertools. Weren't we supposed to get this type of thing by the year 2000? Man this millenium is not living up to the hype!
2002-02-03 02:01:28 AM  
You can never go wrong with Press Your Luck.

No Whammy, No Whammy. Big bucks!!!, STOP! 2000 and a free spin...woohoo!
2002-02-03 07:13:59 AM  
And then of course there is always "Bowling for Dollars"

You know that game "Smash TV" was based on the game Running Man. "I'd Buy That For A Dollar!" hahaha. Classic stuff. That was easily one of my favorite games, and Running Man was a great movie.
