I also loved watching game shows in my youth. Has anyone mentioned Who, What Where?
I have long thought that daytime television says something about our culture. 30 years ago we all watched these shows because we wanted to watch winners and we rooted them on.
Unfortunately today it's just the opposite. We want to see losers which is why shows like Jerry Springer, Maury Povich, Dr Phil and Judge Judy do so well.
I think that's ashame.
