[quote name=\'rialtus\' post=\'127447\' date=\'Aug 15 2006, 12:45 AM\']I'm just waiting for someone to ask if The Match Game/Hollywood Squares Hour would be considered a potential double duplication on the list... [/quote]
If anyone included the show (two or three have, actually) I gave it its own place in line, though it stands little chance of making the top 100.  In every case, not surprisingly, each of the two individual shows had been ranked higher.

Noted.

We're up to fifty entries.  Looking for at least fifty more!
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.

At the risk of wrath, put me in the camp that wishes to separate He Said/She Said from Tattletales. And yes, they were celebrity couples - such as could be snagged in the New York area. The only one I remember with any certainty was author and former Jack Paar writer Jack Douglas and his Japanese wife Reiko, as I was (am) a fan of his books. In one sense, HS/SS was keeping with G-T's policy of doing every variation of word association game possible back then. Like the pilot "It Had To Be You", you told stories about yourself based on key words- which Tattletales did at first, until they got into opinion/agree with questions. Whatever you decide is fine, Sir Matt, if it avoids a headache. Just as long as you don't lump Win, Lose or Draw and The Rebus Game together.... ;-)

And at the risk of seeming intractable, I just don't see this.  The latter was designed and conceived as a remake of the former, back in the G-T remake-happy early seventies.  The rules changed - eventually -  but not nearly so radically, one could argue, as in the remakes of TPIR and Match Game.  Tattletales could just as easily (though awkwardly) have been called "The All-New He Said/She Said", in which case I doubt we'd even be having this discussion.  Certainly, I understand having a preference for one version over another (see: Reaction, Chain) but for the purposes of our list, I can't see calling them two different games.

Besides, combining the two only serves to help both versions.  He Said/She Said by itself would never make the Top 50.

Oohh...now I gotta go refigure everything.  Thanks a bunch.

What about Win, Lose or Draw and Pictionary?  ;-)

Would anyone even admit to considering it?

Don't tell me now we'll get into an argument over whether the kiddie "Pictionary" and the Alan Thicke "Pictionary" should be considered separate shows because Thicke didn't have the pro wrestler or a sloppy end game.

And don't get me started on "Shenanigans" and "Video Village Jr."
This isn't a plug, but you can ask me about my book.

Should my vote for Wheel Of Fortune have specified whether or not I meant the Todd Russell version?

P.S.: Don't banishash me. I'm too cute.

I'm in the process of making my list, and I've coupled "Double Dare" and "Card Sharks" because they have the same theme song. Everyone else has done this, right?

Right?

Yeah and I counted Family Feud and The Price is Right as the same show because I heard the Feud theme once while Janice was showing off a car.

That would also mean a fusing of 2 Bob Stewart games into one "Blankety Blank/Double Talk Hour", right, Matt?   ;-P

And don't you dare lump Wheel 2000 votes into the Wheel Of Fortune popular vote!  I'll take Rolf over Cyber-Lucy...On second thought, it might be better to Rolf *on* Cyber-Lucy!
