Had Barker retired in the 90s Doug Davidson would of done a great job taking over the day time show.


I don't think Davidson would have fit the daytime version well. I think Ray Combs, had he not passed, would have been a hand-in-glove fit on the daytime version of Price. I'd have liked to have seen Mark Wahlberg hosting Price, as Dobkowitz said he liked Wahlberg the best of all who stepped up. Todd Newton would have been a good fit for Price as well IMO.

When that Ireland last showed less than three weeks ago, I wrote that I thought it was about 12k. Well, I was wrong, it was 10k today for sure, and I paid for it. Being naive was the better play as only Torgo & I went over. Hag is the only 28xxx bid as well, and DSWs.

I don't know what sexed up 1, but it certainly was sexed. No one over here, and the top of the board includes those who went most aggressive, including the only 37xxx bid, Hag, who DSW'd.

Other than an "I'll bet Bill Cullen would be good at this game" type of reference, I can't imagine anyone would have given this any serious consideration.

I would love to see how Andy Richter would of hosted Family Feud before Steve Harvey came along.

Tom Kennedy did a great job on the nighttime Tpir he could of carried the daytime show fine. Had Barker retired in the 90s Doug Davidson would of done a great job taking over the day time show.

Todd Newton for Card Sharks. I think he could carry the show well.

I would like to see how Mclean Stevenson would of been if he hosted Match Game. I saw the episode where Gene let him host a show. I think if he took it more seriously he could of made the show fresh again. I thought the show was getting tired when they went to the blue set.

I'm normally not the grammar police, but man, substitute "have" everywhere you wrote "of" and it makes a lot more sense.  The expression is "would have" not "would of".

Bill Cullen was actually considered for millionaire in 1999, until it was discovered that he passed away nine years earlier. Can't remember exactly where I read that.

I can't wrap my head around this. I would think many in the game show business would know he passed away years earlier when Millionaire was being developed for American audiences. Maybe that was one of those "so and so would have made a great host" stories.

Though, to be fair, Bill dropped out of the public spotlight after his final appearance on The $25,000 Pyramid in 1987 and seemed to live a private life until his death.

I'm not sure if Bob would've thrived on a game show like Jeopardy. He was so great with TPiR because of his ability to interact with contestants and Price has several contestants to interact with each show unlike most other game shows which only have 2 or 3 on one show. I could see him doing well with Let's Make a Deal if not for Monty Hall because it too has many contestants on each show to interact with, but a show like Jeopardy or another more traditional show where interaction with contestants is pretty limited would not have suited Bob well. Alex is also too "down to business" for a show like TPiR also.
Maybe you're right, but the fact that Alex had the Goodson pedigree (from his days of hosting Double Dare and Classic Concentration) made me daydream that alternate scenario.
