    Emmy Award-winning journalist Joan Lunden hosts Wickedly Perfect, a new reality show that pits 12 people with a creative knack for the finer things in life in a no-holds-barred competition to crown the country's new authority on at-home living. These perfection-obsessed contestants, whose motto is "anything you can do, I can do better," will compete in different areas of beautifying the home and entertaining, including party planning, gardening, cooking, baking, sewing, crafts, floral arranging and decorating. In addition to chronicling the sometimes funny, sometimes factious relationships that develop among the tightly wound, extremely competitive participants, each week a contestant will be eliminated from their luxurious estate located in New England. Renowned chef and restaurateur Bobby Flay (Mesa Grill), Emmy Award-nominated stylist David Evangelista ("The Rosie O'Donnell Show") and best-selling author Candace Bushnell ("Sex and the City" and "Trading Up") will serve as judges. The winner, who will be crowned after 30 days on the Connecticut estate will receive numerous prizes, including six appearances on "The Early Show" on CBS, a development deal for a lifestyle-oriented television show and a publishing deal with Atria Books, a division of premier publisher Simon & Schuster.

    $64,000 Question

    $64,000 Question

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1958)
    Welcome to the $64,000 Question guide at TV.com. There is no editor for this show. If you would like to be the editor look here for details. This quiz show was based on a radio game show "Take It or Leave It" where the top prize is $64. The television version added 3 zeroes to make it $64,000. A contestant started by choosing a category of his/her choice. The first 10 questions were valued starting @ $1 & doubled up to $512. At any time, the contestant could walk away with the money earned (Jack Benny stopped @ $1!) or risk missing & going home with nothing. The next three questions ($1,000/$2,000/$4,000) came from a secured safe. Then it came time for the Isolation Booth. There, questions were divided into many parts (IE: a 6-part question for $8,000), & think music was provided before the contestant could answer. Each successful win paid $8,000/$16,000/$32,000/$64,000. Missing a question in this stage of the game resulted in a consolation prize, a new Cadillac. Many famous contestants appeared on the show including Barbara Feldon (Get Smart) who had Shakespeare for her caegory, Dr. Joyce Brothers for boxing. There were sometimes guest hosts who filled in for Hal March, Ed Sullivan was game show host for a day. The demise of The $64,000 Question was because of the Quiz Show Scandal. Producers fed contestants information beforehand. Along with Twenty-One & Dotto (the show that started the scandals), big money quizzes were gone by 1958. In 1976, it came back as The $128,000 Question. Mike Darow hosted the first season from New York while Alex Trebek did the second season from Toronto.moreless

    CBS (ended 1982)
    House Calls is a short-lived series that airs on CBS. The show took place around a surgeon and the administrative assistant's love life. By using comedy, the show is able to demonstrate just how crazy the hospital workers were. The series is from the 1979 movie House Calls. Ann Anderson (Lynn Redgrave) and Dr. Charley Michaels (Wayne Rogers) share a love for the first two seasons, until Dr Michaels moves on to Jane Jeffries (Sharon Gless), in the third season of the show. The show abruptly comes to an end, due to bad ratings and the short series. Despite the poor quality, Lynn Redgrave and Wayne Rodgers both receive Emmy nominations for their roles. Lynn Redgrave also receives a nomination for a Golden Globe. Sharon Gless leaving the show after the second season, is due to difficulties with the producers of the show, but she moves on to star in the hit show Cagney and Lacy. moreless

    CBS (ended 1962)
    Video Village Junior was the Saturday morning kiddie version of the popular game show for adults. As in the daytime version, two players (ages 6 to 10), each of them chaperoned by a second (in this case, a parent or other family member), competed to reach the end of a large on-stage game board before his/her opponent did. The game itself was laid out like a village (hence the name, Video Village Junior), with each player needing to navigate three streets to win. Each player's partner, in turn, rolled a "Chuck-A-Luck" cage, which contained a large die. After the "town crier" (announcer Williams) called out the roll, the player advanced that many steps. While some spaces went without consequence, there were plenty of spaces on the board which had special rules. Some were good (Advance Three Spaces and $50 Treasure were examples), while others weren't (e.g., Lose-A-Turn and Go to Jail, the latter requiring the player to answer a question to be "bailed out"); others required the player to complete a stunt to win cash (an amount like $50) or a small prize. On occasion, a player landing on an "Ask the Council" space was posed a simple open-ended question. If the "council" (i.e., the audience) liked the answer, the player kept his spot on the board plus won a small cash prize. Both contestants kept what they won, with all cash converted into a savings bond, which matured on their 18th birthday. And, the player who reached the Finish Line first won a large prize (worth about $1,000). moreless

    Big Brother: All-Stars is the seventh season of CBS’ landmark reality television series Big Brother. Returning host Julie Chen once again opened the door to the Big Brother house, but this time the contestants were notable personalities and fan favorites from previous seasons. The fourteen contestants were chosen by both the producers and by an Internet fan vote. The Big Brother house theme was “A House of Extremes” which was illustrated in the neon flames, gargoyles, and even tarantula cage that could be found throughout the house. Also included in the décor were notable items from previous seasons, which hung on the wall. Season 7 of Big Brother introduced the Emmy Award-winning feature “Big Brother Goes Mobile,” which gave viewers an all-access pass to the houseguests and show extras for a small fee. The show’s internet review show “House Calls” returned for another season of interviews. Big Brother: All-Stars aired in 2006.moreless
