Can Do was a short-lived primetime game show in which contestants tried to predict whether or not guest celebrities could perform stunts.

Gameplay[]

Contestants tried to determine whether or not guest celebrities could perform stunts for as much as $50,000. After a series of question-and-answer rounds between the contestants and celebrities, the contestants were put in an isolation booth where they made their decision. The first round was worth $1,500 and the value doubled on each following round. An incorrect guess caused the players to leave with 10% of the prize he/she was going for (or roughly 20% of his/her winnings to that point).

Studio[]

NBC Studio 6B, New York City, NY

British Version[]

Can Do was eventually remade in the United Kingdom on ITV for 10 weeks in 1958. The host of this version was Jon Pertwee.
