"These are the contestants, this is a name dropper, on Lohman & Barkley's… Name Droppers, starring: (insert three celebrities), and here are those glamorous game players, Al Lohman and Roger Barkley!"

Lohman & Barkley's Name Droppers was a one-year panel name dropping game show.


The game had three stars and twenty contestants who played for a weekday broadcast and along with "A Name Dropper"—a person who in some way had a connection to one of the three celebrities. Examples were: a maid, 1st grade teacher or mechanic. The stars told stories about how they related to the "Name Dropper". The contestants voted for the star whose story they believed. If they were correct they each collect $10 (possibly $200). "The Name Dropper" collected $10 for each wrong vote. In addition, each game had two contestants get a chance to explain why they chose as they did and if either of those cotestants were correct, they won a bonus prize chosen for them; if they were wrong, the "Name Dropper" won the prize(s).

The contestant with the greatest number of correct answers during the week won a $1,000 bonus.
