The total winnings for this show should be $72,890.

The griddle cart has been a one bid several times this season and is $2,699
The tools are presumably $540 from the February 25th playing of More or Less.

Also it looked like Drew was about to reveal the rest of the ARP's in Take Two, but the show went to commercial before he could do so.

The one day I stop going -251, BOTH SCs end in 2xx - that's a pretty cruel joke. That lawn mower was $3300 in a Big Money OB, so DC was probably pretty cheap. Meanwhile Beachcomber hot tubs are never cheap.

Painful loss not just for Lucky Seven but the same for IITB.  Maybe not painful, but IMO it always hurts to see people win nothing after a rather solid performance. 

That's the whole rationale beside why I yell at the television for the player to stop on It's In The Bag when that player gets to $8K-- far too much to lose, but the player will push ahead and crash and burn anyway.

Orson would've been a hit for Family Feud, especially given how several people act like their celebrities or a bigger deal than they actually are.


I actually enjoyed Bert on Super Password, probably because I enjoyed his work overall.  However I agree that him and Tom swapping would have been perfect.  Really if you think about it, Mark could have sorta kept things the way they were.  He kind of traded Kennedy for Bert in a way.  Just keep Bert in the 4:00 timeslot with the then new gameshow and have Tom return to his role within the Password franchise as he did so well with Plus.  I don't know if Body Language lasts longer with Convy at the helm; I think it would have as he was quite good IMO for Win Lose or Draw.


I usually give folks like Bean and Convy a pass but it's really about the nature of what gameshow they're working as well as the "supporting cast".  Man, I would have loved to see him run Hollywood Squares!

Adam, I'm glad you're feeling better.  Regardless of those circumstances (and more often than not it works itself out in a mostly positive way), it may happen to everyone but it sucks within the moment.  Take care

Ouch, tough break on Lucky $even somehow guessing 9 for the 3rd digit but then losing on the last two numbers.

Push Over came down to deceptively cheap vs deceptively expensive for the right price, and it turned out to be deceptively cheap.

The second half sure made up for the winless first half including Switcheroo and Take Two won on the first try!

They lost me at Roger DOBOWITZ.

This is what counts for hard-hitting content these days. There is nothing new here.

I laughed out loud for a good minute when I first heard that.

My problem with Bert on Super Password was that his hosting style was not quite suited for that show. He came off as a little too chatty. I wished he had swapped places with Tom Kennedy on Body Language. He would have been a perfect host for Hollywood Squares, though.

That's how I'd classify Orson as a host too funny enough. At least in those pilots. On a celebrity driven game maybe he'd do better ala Bert? But depends.
