I kind of felt the same way when I did the TPIR DVD giveaway. While I didn't expect everyone to participate, I was suprised at how few did. [/quote]

There was a TPiR DVD giveaway???

...I cannot THINK of fifty game shows off the top of my head. Of course there's lists, but the trick is for me to avoid using non-american game shows.

That's the hardest part, I believe. Just think of 50 game shows, never mind 50 AMERICAN shows, is a lot harder than it looks.

But that said, I have to ask...

1) was the intent just to include American shows?

2) if that's the case, would we see a smaller sub-list as to where they were ranked if people did vote for them (which I'm assuming some did)?
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

It was, in fact, specifically requested that that be so.

If that's the case, pity some people apparently cannot read.

For Dixon and Nick's benefit, I do believe this is to what Chris B. was referring.  And as to why I didn't enter, I didn't know the answer so I wouldn't have won anyway.

So, since the contest is over and I obviously don't know anyway (unless it was Rod Roddy taking over full time as announcer), what was the answer?

I had guessed that it was the day the DSW threshold went from $100 to $250, but I got a message on May 29 saying "The correct answer was the daytime doors were replaced by the Davidson 94 doors. Thanks for playing."

I still don't think that's right. I don't think my guess is right either, but I'm not sure what he means by the doors were replaced, because I don't think they ever were.

I remember in the early 2000s where they wanted to bring back Whistle or Lose It aiming to a young demographic.  Thankfully, if never came to existence.  Maybe because they wanted to name the show HUMMERS.

Sadly, I was never able to see the original, and whenever I tried to watch VH1's edition, my dish went out. I don't know if the gods tried to purposely screw me or if they were just doing me a favor.

To let you into the Laff Factory(tm), my own little comment was about the fourth one I wrote out before I was happy. Comedy: it can be hard. And:

This may be the most deadpan humor seen to date on these boards.

The photo I have has the date on the doors when they were replaced with the Davidson doors.

And I couldn't tell you offhand who else won. I cleaned up my mailbox that had those e-mails.

Enjoy lots and lots of backstage TPIR photos and other fun stuff here. And yes, I did park in Syd Vinnedge's parking spot at CBS
