[quote name=\'TimK2003\' post=\'231109\' date=\'Nov 23 2009, 07:29 PM\']"Don't Stop Me Now" by Queen would make a pretty good theme.[/quote]

Good grief, that has to be the campiest song Queen ever did.  And catchiest too, I might add.

[quote name=\'William_S.\' post=\'128409\' date=\'Aug 21 2006, 11:36 PM\']Tank! ( Cowboy Bebop opening): For some reason I can see this as the theme to Card Sharks. It does have that casino/lasvegas feel to the music.[/quote]
Seconded.

Also, while not a TV theme Secret Base Zone Act 1 from Sonic Advance seems fitting.  I can especially hearing that opening part being used as "going to commercial" music.

Reminds me a bit of the theme to "Blackout".

There's a production piece being used on promos for the Tru-tv show It Only Hurts When I Laugh that is just screaming to be used for a cheesy 70s-style game....Password All-Stars, Stumpers, Three For The Money... you could probably come up with a dozen easy....

River Deep, Mountain High = This Version will work as a Game Show Theme
I Wonder Who's Hot Tonight = That Will work as well too
Turn The Beat Around = Maybe, It will stork work as a theme for an late 70's-early 80's game show.

Both themes to The Bob Newhart Show, the 1970s version, some great tunes by Patrick Williams, who apparently did most of the MTM 70s sitcoms (except for WKRP).

The first rendition has a piano breakdown that could be used for a cue along the lines of a contestant intro. The closing five bars would make a sweet victory cue, and remind me a lot of the closing stinger for the contestant intro on TJW.

Apparently the second theme was part of a 3-minute track called "Home to Emily". This version is jazzier and makes a nice prize cue for something along the line of a stereo or home furnishings. The version used on the show was faster, although both are snazzy.
