"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 whole week with "Name Droppers" (people who in some way had a connection to one of the three celebrities). 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 won $10. "The Name Dropper" won $10 for each incorrect vote. In addition, each game had two contestants explain why they chose as they did, and if either of those contestants were correct, they won a bonus prize chosen for them; if they were wrong, the "Name Dropper" won the prize(s). All contestants would each be given one opportunity to win prizes.

The contestant with the greatest number of correct answers during the week won a $1,000 bonus which would be divided in the event of a tie for the most correct answers.
