Episode Summary

Behind the Chuck
The first episode of Chuck Woolery: Naturally Stoned takes viewers on a whirlwind tour of Chuck's life and also sees him peforming his hit "Naturally Stoned" for the first time ever live and behind the scenes of Lingo. It describes that back in the sixties, it was a time when drug usage was highly prevalent. Chuck wanted to make a song about a natural high and so he ended up doing "Naturally Stoned" with his band Avant-Garde and Bubba Fowler. It was a bit of a hit, but the follow-up never got off the ground. Chuck went on to TV, doing such shows as the New Zoo Revue playing a really old and wacky character called "Mr. Dingle." He ended up on the show Tattletales and Merv Griffin asked him if he had ever becoming a game-show host. It was all part of Merv's "big head" theory - and Chuck had one! Merv Griffin had a project, Wheel of Fortune and he gave Chuck the role as host. Chuck, however, quit the role and was replaced by Pat Sajak - a decision he said he still regrets. Chuck later hosted Love Connection - which he described as one of his favorite hosting roles because he likes to interview people and he also really likes to listen. He then hosted the big money game show Greed and now is doing Lingo on Game Show Network. The show continues, showing Chuck with his wife, Teri Woolery and the show also disusses how Teris is actually Chuck's third wife. We also get to spend some time with Woolery's kids. There are some behind the scenes segments from the show Lingo. We get to hear Chuck's opinions on TV producers and network executives. Chuck is also shown trying to blow off a photo shoot, which he eventually ends up doing. At the end of the show, Chuck is shown in an event hyped since the start of the show, a live peformance of "Naturally Stoned." It's his first ever live performance and the first time he's done the song at all in 35 years and it's actually pretty good. Throughout the performance, clips of Woolery are shown, including short clips from Love Connection, Greed and a funky dance he did on Lingo.moreless
