  • Goodson-Todman pulled a role reversal & used ABC's ceiling limit.

    Except for Beat The Clock & panel shows, Goodson-Todman games always favored female contestants (Match Game7X, Now You See It are some examples) with an occasional male player once in awhile.

    Double Dare finally turned the tables. Why? Because the contestant coordinators were crazy over walrus mustaches. By the time they found normal people, the show was yanked in favor of "Here's Lucy" reruns.

    Before Jeopardy!, Alex Trebek did his first hard quiz show. And like Ken Jennings who dominated Jeopardy!, Alan Lusher was their version of Ken. Alan went undefeated, winning 8 games & $20,500. Alan also was on Jeopardy! hack in 1985.

    Strange that this show was on CBS, it followed ABC's winnings cap of $20,000, instead of $25,000 like most CBS games. On the other hand, Family Feud (Dawson) & The Better Sex followed CBS's $25,000 limit cap (though both shows were on ABC).
