Buzzr takes the WABAC machine to the 50s and 60s for this batch of shows. The list (all times ET):
4 PM - Call My Bluff (1965)
4:40 - Number Please (1961)
5:20 - Say When!! (1961)
6 PM - Get The Message (1964)
6:40 - Split Personality (1959)
7:20 - What's Going On?  (1954)

Call My Bluff was wildly popular in the UK on BBC, compared to its original USA incarnation.

Supposedly, Mark Goodson asked the BBC to adapt the format for the USA at one point, forgetting the fact that he was the original creator.

Call My Bluff seems like a precursor to Wordplay. I wonder if that's where that came from.......

Jim Lange hosted Take My Word For It, a Bluff clone in syndication, which was a revival of an earlier show, Oh, My Word! which Lange also hosted..
