  • show Description
  • Jeopardy! contestants NOT wanted. This comedy "game show" was the exact opposite of programs where contestants are expected to know something. The host, Joe Flynn, would pose a silly question to the panel of comics--something with an obvious answer like, "Who's buried in Grant's tomb?". After a few minutes of jokes and bizarre reasoning, the group would agree on a preposterous answer that was inevitably wrong. The panellists played on behalf of contestants who were chosen from a dunce cap that dropped from the ceiling. The viewers were always rewarded a prize despite the celebrities' asinine conclusions. This syndicated series was an update on a popular radio and early television series from the 1940s and early 50s.moreless
