Do you have any favorite game shows? Here are some of mine:

Wheel of Fortune
Press Your Luck
Price is Right
Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?
Supermarket Sweep
The New Hollywood Squares (John Davidson/Shadoe Stevens version)
Hollywood Squares (Tom Bergeron version)

Those are some good choices. I used to like Classic Concentration where you had to solve Rebus puzzles.

But the greatest game show of them all was Ken Ober's Remote Control, where Kari Wuhrer pretty much got her start. I loved everything about it because it felt like a game show made for my generation.

Oh, and because it started in '97 it still counts (I think). Win Ben Stein's Money.

Finally, this lasted only one season. Greg Proops had a game show in '99 called Versus, where two opposed teams would face off. You had porn stars versus nudists, dominatrixes versus soccer moms, Valley girls versus Jersey girls, etc. As fun as the show was, it just didn't have the legs. Still, it was a fun run.
