Show Summary

This show was hosted by "Rowan And Martin's Laugh-In" regular Arte Johnson. This daytime game show featured three contestants facing four items. The contestants' job was to guess which item was not related to the other three. The items were revealed one at a time, and when a player believed that an unrelated item had been revealed, that player buzzed in. If he/she was correct, then one letter of the word "K-N-O-C-K-O-U-T" was earned. The player could then earn an additional letter by guessing the category from the items left on the board or by challenging one of his/her two opponents. If the challenged player guessed correctly, he/she earned two letters. If he/she failed, the challenger earned the letters and could challenge his/her opponent for two more letters. The first player to spell "KNOCKOUT" with all eight letters won the game.

The winner played a bonus round for the chance to win up to $5,000. He/she tried to guess the category of three items. If he/she guessed right after one item was revealed, then the answer was worth $500. After two clues, the answer was worth $300 and after all three, the answer was $100. Players could increase their bankroll tenfold by choosing one of three clues in another game and guessing the category.

Whoever won five games won a new car. Players would keep returning until they had lost two games.
