Harry Friedman as EP is highly encouraging for me. This sounds like it'll be fun.

Cool color photo from the 50s era.

Jeopardy Friedman and not Wheel Friedman, please! 
Some days I need Dick Clark to step in and give me the perfect clue...

Okay, this is the third time I've seen this complaint in as many days, and I honestly don't understand. Because the show doesn't force a reference to the NBC years every other day, Friedman sucks?

I admit the show's been on cruise control for years, and is a rare example of a program being too much "game" and not enough "show" to break up the monotony, but it's not like he made it completely unwatchable. It's still people spinning a wheel and guessing letters in a puzzle, it's still a Top 3-5 show, and the times I've watched I liked some of the gimmicks (the Express space, the Crossword round, the old Jackpot space). So, yes, I'll take "Wheel Friedman" on TTD.

The shopping era's not coming back, folks.

Harry Friedman has produced game shows for years. Decades. I'll take Harry Friedman any day of the week and twice on Tuesday's over many of the current crop of producers.

I didn't realize this 'til now, but good on Don Howard for calling this back in 2004;)

If they're stretching it out to an hour, maybe do two games with two contestants each, a playoff game between each winner, and then a bonus round?
