It sounds a lot like a detective show theme song from the 70s.

Wouldn't hurt for ABC's promo department to dial back on the kinetic typography.
Hey, Im TVs Wayne Brady. I use Bald As Hell!

Now celebrating his 18th season on GSF!

Gee, what is with the ABC games and their phoned-in MIDI versions of the themes? M'eh.

Nonetheless, nice lineup of stars!

So worse than the WOF theme we have now as it is?
I bought a Sony Pictures Television t-shirt.  I use it to cover up whatever shirt I was wearing before.

Paul Reubens' name is spelled incorrectly.

You sure it's different? I can't tell the difference.

There's some different instrumentation. I'm inclined to believe that this was a different mix that was already recorded and just decided to use this one because it sounded more posh.
This signature is currently under construction.

Tell you what, Twitter has been on fire the last couple days over the whole Ken Jennings/Bean Dad thing, and looking at posts about the new Celebrity WoF, the Twitterverse isn't exactly going easy on Sajak either.

I thought about modifying my original reply with an "I see what you did there" type message, assuming Blanquepage was being sarcastic about how bland and nondescript the Wheel theme is now in general.

...No, no sarcasm. I'm referring actually to how the ABC versions of classic games take the themes with real instruments and turn them into make these half-baked synthed-up renditions. At least the regular 'Wheel' theme has real percussions and horns.   :-\
