After all the pain and trouble I had to go through to render more and more TPIR pricing games, I finally posted them here. I hope you're satisfied, now that "Rat Race", "Vend-o-Price", the current version of "Side-by-Side", and all else is posted. For the love of God, BE GRATEFUL for what's here. And BE PATIENT as well. Got it? Gotta log off now. I need some rest.
I have just discovered the DEFAULTSORT feature on Wikipedia. When we've looked at Fandom all these years, we only saw that there were almost no pages with this feature. I have been trying to apply it to lots of pages, but there's so much one user can do at one time.
Would anyone want to help me, please? If so, that would be wonderful.
So im scanning through the channels and i just saw that best ever trivia show is now on Game Show Central (Roku). I added it to list of shows in the GSC page
Very few game show fans know that MarioGS, Daniel, and myself are big video game fans. Heck, we're big Mario fans.
However, it has come to my attention that there are some people out there still going hyper over a clue in this past season's Jeopardy! College Championship that has to do with Zelda, as well as a similar Final Jeopardy! round with such.
Both cases, people were arguing that the players who responded with "What is Zelda?" should've been given credit. Here's the problem: The game's name is The Legend of Zelda, not just Zelda for short. Zelda is just ONE CHARACTER. And Daniel and MarioGS can both back me up that Super Mario Bros., while being the first game in the Mario franchise, is NOT MARIO FOR SHORT. That's just ONE CHARACTER.
This is talked about on several game show pages; it applies to almost all shows of the 70s and many in the 80s, particularly those that are turn-based. Talk About is the series to beat for the most recently seen instance.
Straddling is when the episode ends before the regular round is finished; also referred to as picking up where it left off. The next episode starts with the board and / or accumulations being maintained in this manner to finish the round out.
Tomorrow 12/7 is the 77th anniversary of the birth of Peter Tomarken, the 32nd anniversary of the premiere of MTV's Remote Control, the 29th anniversary of the last first run episode of Tic Tac Dough 1990, and the 50th anniversary of the birth of Zach Horan.
More proof that Santa DOES exist, aside from the NORAD and Google trackers AND Virginia O'Hanlon's letter to the New York Sun
In years past, I've linked the sites to said sources for proof of Santa's existence. But considering you can find them in my past posts on this subject, I'll give another source: A Card Sharks syndicated episode with Bill Rafferty.
In that episode, they have 10 department store Santas, and to prove Santa DOES exist, Bill says that they couldn't have the real Santa, so they brought 10 of his "helpers"; and their nametags are numbered, what else, 1-10. You can find this episode on YouTube.
And recently, I have been reading that the tracking footage is edited. Nope. It's real-time and LIVE, so THERE'S NO EDITING! NOT POSSIBLE!
Last but not least, I am sick of the comments that, in addition to "Santa's not real/fake", etc.; We get things like "Sant…

What other classic game shows would work in the 2020s besides the ones that are currently in production?
I have been thinking about certain game shows from certain decades that aren't recent. I wonder which game shows would work in the next decade. I was thinking of formats from the 1950s to the 2000s, like What's My Line? or I've Got a Secret, Password or Concentration, The Dating Game or High Rollers, Blockbusters or Sale of the Century, not to mention Ready... Set... Cook! or Shop 'til You Drop. Can anyone tell me which classic formats from these decades would or wouldn't work in the 2020s?

A message to those who thinks James Holzhauer is a FRAUD or CHEAT, or that Jeopardy! is RIGGED or FIXED...
The above link is self-explanatory. But the rant I am about to do is anything but (your mileage may vary)...
During the time of the passing of Charles Van Doren and James Holzhauer's Jeopardy! streak, I had been yearning for more information on the quiz show scandals (link above). Heck, I even bought a 2-pack DVD set that not only talks about game shows in particular, but (on BOTH discs, also sold separately), you guessed it, the quiz show scandals. The Biography DVD also highlights Ken Jennings' streak, too, so that one is worth a watch.
But let us focus on the man chasing Ken Jennings, and that is none other than James Holzhauer, who as of the writing of this post, has won 29 games and ove…
This DVD features 26 episodes from game shows from the 1950s and 1960s. And no matter which era we were born in (most of us game show fans were 80s, 90s, and 2000s born), expect to learn a little about that era in school (like I did by taking a journalism class in college).
To kick things off, there's a Bill Cullen episode of The Price is Right from the NBC era (remember, if it's Don Pardo announcing, you know it's NBC; it's the only network he worked at).
The quiz show scandals are highlighted here, but not in the way you would expect. Twenty One, while highlighted, won't highlight the ever-popular Stempel-Van Doren duel that made Quiz Show famous. The episode featured here mentions James Snodgrass, the contestant who mailed the correct answers to …
As I write this, James Holzhauer is about halfway to Ken Jennings' record on Jeopardy!; all he has to do is win 75 (instead of 74), and he will hold the record to most games won.
Lately, I've been reading a lot of YouTube comments suggesting this is all "fixed", "rigged", and the guy is a "cheat".
Let me give you an insight to the show itself before we go back to the subject at hand: Merv Griffin was anxious to get quiz shows back on the air after the scandals of the 1950s. He was nervous, too, as his wife Julann suggest he do a shot where the players are given the answers and he literally had to remind her about what happened on the old shows: the producers went to jail. But then she clarified something to him: Give the players the answers, and hav…

Information, Please was the gold standard in radio quiz programs. Created by Dan Golenpaul, it tested a listener's knowledge by stumping the correct answer correctly.

In the past, the Wheel would be automated in the show's opening and closing, even a few months into the now 20+ year-old electronic puzzle board.
My initial theories were they were controlled by motors in the Wheel's base, or even by a computer in the control room.
But there's another theory on my mind...wind tunnels. I know, you're gonna ask, "John, how can a wind tunnel propel something as heavy as the Wheel?" Well, you all know that wind tunnels propel jet engines and helicopter propellers. If they can propel those, they can probably propel anything that can spin...except probably Price's Big Wheel (first off, it's a vertical wheel; second, the spaces are seen from the front; and third, it's a pretty heavy wheel compared to the Wheel).
It would …
Welcom to The Kollege of Musical Knowledge, old time radio fans! Kay Kyser hosted the classic radio quiz of musical nerves and strategy where contestants were pitted against Professor Kyser, headmaster of the fictional Kollege of Musical Knowledge, led by His Band of Renown.
About 14 years ago I watched an episode of Millionaire where I saw a contestant get a question about how many gifts there were in the song about the 12 Days of Christmas. He guessed 78, as did I, but both of us were shocked to find out it was 364.
You're wondering how we both guessed 78: Simple, the first line in each verse (i.e. the partridge on the first day, turtle doves on the second, etc.).
Now, the question is: how in the world was it 364, and where did we go wrong? Comment below. Gameshowguy2000 (talk) 04:28, December 21, 2018 (UTC)
Recently, I happened to find this video of a then 21-year-old (now 27, judging from the upload's date) getting a visit from Santa.
However, as much as I, and other autistic Santa-believers wanted the conversation about the video to be peaceful, some person who was very anti-autistic, started bashing the person in the video, the autistic people commenting in it, and myself. Needless to say, I was not happy.
Now, you know that I and my fellow admins William, Brandon, as well as Video Archivist and Wheel Wiki admin Daniel are all autistic as well as Santa believers. And we all know one thing: It's one thing to believe in Santa. It's one thing not to believe in Santa. But it's another to bash those who do believe.
You're wondering, "John, where are you g…
OK, I am glad to announce that I am officially a member of the Frozen watchers club (instead of the Wheel Watchers Club; though honestly, next time they go to WDW, they could use the characters/actors to introduce Pat and Vanna; wouldn't hurt, would it?).
For those who don't know, it's based on the Hans Christen Anderson tale The Snow Queen. But, given that most everyone's seen the movie to this point, I'll just go straight to my review.
It's a great movie, and like everyone else who finishes watching it the first time, you'll won't be able to let go (no pun intended) of "Let It Go". And there's a reprise version of the movie song for the stage show at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. In fact, every time I bring it up at work, some of my co-…
Recently, in honor of my late grandfather, I have been adding articles on old quiz and game shows that were broadcasted on radio during its Golden Age. These shows weren't on this Wiki when he died. So I bought a book on old time radio shows, and skimmed through the pages to find the quiz and game shows that were broadcast in that format. I use the information from the book to put information on the pages. When I need more information, I go to the website otrrpedia.net. OTRR stands for Old Time Radio Research. I use the existing episodes on their On Demand page (which has free access) to see what information is correct and what isn't.
If you would like to help me with this project, just go to this site, and click on Old Time Radio On Demand…
Reason being that they found a bug in the software. Downside to this is that we can no longer edit using the older Wiki format (which I really preferred); but hey, nothing stays the same forever, and we know it. So, for this post, and all my previous ones, commenting is open again. HALLELUJAH! Gameshowguy2000 (talk) 22:59, July 28, 2018 (UTC)
I would like to apologize to everybody on this wiki for everything that has happened over the past two days, mainly with Magitroopa. He's not really a terrible editor, he just couldn't accept our ways of editing around here, nor the fact that this is not Wikipedia. There are several editors out there who treat these Fandom sites as if this is Wikipedia, that they end up forgetting that it's really not Wikipedia and that we can be as loose as we can. Brandon Devers even says that first names are allowed not last names. Furthermore, you've seen his comments, rudely telling how to do my job. I usually don't get that rogue; I got pushed into being rogue as I've had many times before with other Fandom users. But that doesn't always mean that th…
This episode has an epic battle of becoming a Skatoony game show host and Chudd is the People's Choice.
I want to start a new Wikia run for 2018. My plan is to collect only the bronze achievements first. If there's no more to collect on the bronze, I take the next step and only focus on the silver achievements. And after that, I'll take the next step again in getting the gold achievements.
Since the late 1990s, there have been game and reality shows produced in my home region of New York City, NY. I am trying to figure out which shows were produced here. If any of you could help me, that would be very kind of you. Thank you.
Alex Trebek ruled the Saturday morning dance-show era in the early 1960s and, in 1961, began presiding over a briefly defunct CBC show called Music Hop. As host and interviewer, Trebek introduced Canada's most acclaimed sock-hop hitmakers durting that time; and this series took CBC viewers to the top of the Canadian Nielsen ratings during its entire run.
Music Hop debuted on CBC in the fall of 1961 pre-Soundcloud and pre-Spotify. 11 years later, Trebek would make his U.S. series television debut as host of NBC's ill-fated 1973 game show The Wizard of Odds, which featured the title theme composition by a pre-Growing Pains Alan Thicke, who went on to compose the themes from several hit sitcoms including Diff'rent Strokes, The Facts of Life and …
If you have been on this or any other wiki, you'll know that occasionally we have a thing called an editing war. It is the kind of war where two users have a disagreement over a certain page or for other reasons. There was even one here where it had nothing to do with this wiki. PSUAvatar14, the one who got involved here, because the guy who came after him for getting blocked by him knew about his editing here and that really blew things up. As you've seen, I've had my share of editing wars with the likes of SCC, Shadeed, Brandon Bridges, Brandon Devers and Daniel. I'm talking about this now, because today I was in an editing war on the Jumanji Wiki. The user who fought me is called "Pagonging", he claims that I was doing something illega…
First of all, this is not a post telling those who have done this to get out or they have ruined this wiki, especially since this is far from being ruined.
What I want to know is, what is it about a Wikia user (now Fandom user) that makes them act like the Energizer Bunny, they keep going, and going, and going, and going, and going, and going, and going?! This is what I like to call going on a rampage. To me, that's a crime! For constant editing on this or any other Wiki unless it is just starting out usually floods up the recent changes page, causing us to use the search box to get to the pages we want to see. I've said this time and time again. This is not a plea to stop nor leave; this is a plea to slow down; you know, take beat before e…

Yes, you heard right. And you wonder why you don't hear me do it.
Simple...do you really want me ruining anyone's holiday season around here?! I certainly don't.

What mini-games were used other than the ones on the wikia?
Hello. Forgive me if this type of question is not allowed, I have a great idea for a TV game show. Description is full and illustrated as a pdf file, in an easy to follow format. Modesty aside, the concept is very simple,to follow, yet very appealing. "Wheel" and "jeopardy" Come to mind as examples. Just like these classics it involves luck/chance and knowledge, Again, I have a description fully prepared with graphics and everything.
It's time for more insane ways to do to people who just can't seem to get a question right

If you might not know already, users like myself, Daniel, Brandon, and William are autistic.
I want to bring attention to something that's been crossing my mind--this so-called "cure" for it.
There is no cure. NO CURE AT ALL!
I've been reading a lot about how the organization "Autism Speaks" is literally bashing anyone who's autistic. And if you think that's bad, I read a comment on a YouTube video that suggests autistic people "need to be put in a zoo."
Well, excuse me! Just because Daniel, Brandon, William, and I are autistic doesn't mean we deserve to be put in a zoo. Just because we're autistic, doesn't mean we don't know right from wrong. With William running this Wiki and Daniel running Wheel Wiki, and even Brandon running the Coca-Cola Wiki, th…
Called it Canada's answer to ABC's defunct American Bandstand, and Alex Trebek's first series - the 1960s cult dance program Music Hop - was a success.
Trebek introduced Canadian teens to Canada's diverse roster of musical artistry in English and French (think "Go Go Trudeau" meets Nickelback's "How You Love Me") - and many of the world's top Billboard chart-topping musical acts appeared on MH - among them the Sinners.
The Sinners' offbeat novelty hit, "Go Glo Trudeau," satirized Prime Minister Trudeau's rise to power in the Canadian government as a means of controversy. So, where did Trebek steered away from the audience?
Trebek himself went on to fill in the shoes left by Art Flemming as the host of Jeopardy! during the 1980s.
As many of you know, there are slot machines based on Wheel. And...believe it or not, some of those can even be found on machines with names that have been casino mainstays for years--and I'm talking about names such as Red White & Blue and Double Diamond.
But whether it's the regular mechanical slot machine, or the computerized type (also with the reels, but on a video screen that switches in case you make it to a bonus round), every machine has a Max Bet function. You hit that button, and per the function, you bet the max number of coins, and if you hit a special combo, you trigger a bonus round for more money. But that's the only way you can trigger the bonus round...and it'll also increase your chances of winning the jackpot.
However, I've l…
In the show's entry at User:Daniel Benfield/Sold Pilot Theatre, I mention that "I really could tear apart this pitch's claims, they're that laughable." Well, for my first blog post here I think it's well past time I (try to) put my money where my mouth is.

Before there was Mall Masters at Mall of America, The Bachelor, You Deserve It or Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, there was Texas native and former Oklahoma City local television journalist Christopher Bryan Harrison, who covered the top stories making headlines in local television sports during the 1990s.
