The Big Board / Re: The "budget saver" episode
« Last post by Long live Jeopardy! on April 24, 2024, 09:11:28 AM »
The bonus round on Double Dare was pretty easy to manipulate for this purpose--any time they put the dreaded "find the flag buried in a giant pool of glop" obstacle in the 2nd, 3rd or 4th slot, you knew they were in budget mode.

There were some 1990 Family Double Dare episodes where Inside Out, Toe Jam, and Pick It were in the same obstacle course that day.

This is an extraordinary resource for information about old radio game shows.  There's some detail in the descriptions that I didn't know about before, including for some of Bill Cullen's old shows.  Unfortunately there just aren't a lot of us left who care.

That said, there is at least one point of caution- Mr. Keen, Tracer of Lost Persons was a dramatic series (and one that lasted for a rather long time at that), and the listings I've seen from the 1951-1953 period do not seem to suggest it having a format change during that time.

Came across this while looking for something elseÖitís a dissertation written by a student going for his doctorate at Ohio State University in 1958.  A good deal of information on radio shows.  Perhaps this is more appropriate for the archive?

I really wish I could remember where I read this, but itís a weird rhyme and reason to why thereís no huge difference in aesthetics over the last 15 years. I think that explains a lot. Iíll see what I can find.

I think it means more that game shows haven't changed in appearance much in the last fifteen years. 2006 or so was probably when game shows started slowly getting away from the Millionaire-style sets and bringing more color back into play, even while maintaining a little darkness.

The Big Board / "Timeless" game shows
« Last post by SamJ93 on April 23, 2024, 08:12:48 PM »
I was watching some Catch 21 on Game Show Central earlier today, and was struck by how it still felt like a show that premiered recently, even though the eps. in question first aired over a decade ago. Outside of the occasional question about "Vice President Biden" or similar, there really isn't anything in terms of set design, technology, or wardrobe that dates it to the late '00s/early '10s.

Is this a legit testament to how well-produced the show was, or just a sign that I'm getting old? And are there any other game shows that give you a similar surprise in terms of feeling like they were made in the last few years, even though they're actually much older?

This is roughly the time Fred Silverman wrote his thesis at anOSU about using demographics to better sell advertising.

I'm just glad that Beavis has managed to find steady employment in these difficult times.
