Favorite TV Game Shows of All Time
- Jeopardy! - No, not just because I was on it, but because it's consistently the smartest and most competitive show on TV
- Cash Cab - Wildly uneven because the contestants have no idea they're going to be on a Game Show - but that's 90% of the fun
- High Rollers - The basic game design, trying to eliminate the numbers from 2 through 12 by rolling two dice was elegant, rewarding strategy, quick odds calculation and guts
- Win Ben Stein's Money - Ben defended his money well, making this a tough game on the contestants
- Card Sharks - A simple game of guessing if the next card would be higher or lower than the previous one, it was another game that encouraged and rewarded guts
- The Price is Right - "One dollar, Bob!" "Have your pets spayed or neutered"
- Password - You had to be quick witted giving and receiving clues in this game
- Remote Control - A great parody of the Game Show format, we all loved to "Sing Along With Colin"
- Beat the Geeks - A show I wouldn't have done well on - unless that Simpsons Geek was on, who I would have cleaned the floor with!
- Let's Make a Deal - Free Form Fun! The host could basically do anything to keep the show exciting, and, in the show's best moments, did just that!
