New Year, New Perspectives
More interesting news came out this week regarding the
newest game show sensation, Deal or No Deal. There are
already discussions about stripping the show in
syndication. So lets go ahead and start the
speculation: Who would host such a show? Could be
but its been ages since a prime show and a
corresponding syndie show were hosted by the same
person. (The last one that comes to mind for me is
Jeopardy!/Super Jeopardy!...anybody think of one more
If not Howie, then who? Would you even think of trying
George Gray on another syndicated series? What about
Todd Newton? Or maybe someone from one of NBCs hit
series. Oh wait, NBCs only hit series is Deal
or No Deal. Oops. :)
So lets hear it
who would you put in the host slot?
Email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post your
along with my opinion
here next week.
The midseason premieres start this week. The
self-contained episodes of The Biggest Loser kick
things off Wednesday, followed by Dancing with the
Stars on Thursday. (Yes, I know Celebrity Fit Club
launched Sunday, but Im only counting shows that
havent jumped the shark yet.) Ill handicap Dancing
in this space next week.
Were back to the alphabet again picking back up with
C, and our C game show is:
Host: David Sparks
Crosswits was a short lived revival of The Cross-Wits,
which aired from 1975-1980 and was hosted by Jack Clark.
