Sounds like this show is more suited for John Davidson to host.

If only Bill Cullen were here to host.

But isn't that true of just about everything?

True! And there'd be one fewer show the host and contestant ambling around the set in an annoying way.

Whammy: You are the absolute worst at this game.

(and by game I mean coming up with new ideas)

Another tidbit I am getting out of this: there's a Mary Hartman remake on the way as well? 
I bought a Sony Pictures Television t-shirt.  I use it to cover up whatever shirt I was wearing before.

Whac-A-Mole?

Seriously, Whac-A-Mole?
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

Tricia stared at them.

"That must be very boring, isn't it?" she blurted out.

"Yes."

"So why..."

"Except..."

"Yes? Except what?"

"Game shows. We quite like game shows."

TPiR used Super Ball for several years. Maybe a version of Whack-a-mole would fit? You have thirty seconds to whack. You win money for each mole and you have to earn enough to buy the prize on stage.

It's probably still a better idea than this:

https://www.thewrap.com/slip-n-slide-competition-series-in-the-works-at-critical-content/
Given that flipping a coin a whole bunch of times was a thing, game shows based on Whac-A-Mole and Slip 'N' Slide get little more than an eyebrow raise from me.
The Game Show Forum: over 15 years of beating the **** out of the competition, and still going strong.

What's next? Frisbee and Hula Hoop Olympics? Oh, let me not give them ideas.

The sad thing is someone got paid to come up with these ideas. Quite handsomely I’m sure.

Hell, I could go to my local Chuck E. Cheese and find something in there to create a game show around; where’s my paycheck?

I hear "The $100,000 Tie My Shoe" is back in consideration somewhere too.

I hear “Celebrity Rate My Poo” may be greenlighted soon
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
