Summary
Nothing has evoked American showmanship and competition more effectively than the TV game show. This program traces one of broadcasting's most popular genres from its beginnings in radio through its heyday in the late 1960s. The Price Is Right host Bob Barker talks about his earliest work, and Merv Griffin details the "eureka" moments that led to his creation of Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. Monty Hall recounts his compelling rags-to-riches story, while Betty White remembers her role as the first female emcee and Phyllis Diller recalls her first TV appearance as a painfully shy contestant on Groucho Marx's You Bet Your Life.
