    After 22 years, To Tell the Truth (1990) came back to daytime network tv, but on a new network (NBC).

    Two games were played per show & the cash awards were; $500 per incorrect vote ($1,000 minimum) & $3,000 for a stump.

    The audience game was called "One on One", where an audience member met a guest who told two stories. The panelist each asked a question per story. The audience member then had to guess which story is the truth. If the audience member is right, s/he wins $500. If incorrect, the guest wins $1,000.

    Gordon Elliott had to get out of the show due to a clause in his contract. Lynn Swann replaced him, making him the 3rd African-American host of a network tv game show (Adam Wade & Nipsey Russell were the others). Alex Trebek replaced him in February while also hosting Classic Concentration & Jeopardy! On one episode, Alex had to rush to the hospital for his wife had a baby, so Mark Goodson hosted for two days (he previously subbed back in 1967). It would mark his next to last television appearance before he died in 1992 (the 20th season opener of The Price Is Right is his last).

    There is no editor for this show. If you would like to be the editor look here for details.moreless

    One of the most popular home board games of the early 1990s was "Scattegories," where contestants had to list as items in a category starting with a particular letter. In late 1992, some bright bird brain at NBC decided the board game would make a wonderful game show. Thus, Scattegories was born. This short-lived show was actually quite a bit of fun, but awful execution and a disorganized, slapped-together look doomed the show to a short run. Two teams of four contestants each - one all males and the other all females, and one a returning championship team - competed. Host Clark announced a category (e.g., something found under a little boy's bed); the team chosen to go first was given a letter (e.g., G). The team had 20 seconds to list up to six items in that category (they had to give at least four to advance to the next part of the round). Each appropriate response worth 1 point. The opposing team could then challenge any of the responses for any reason; if a majority of the jury (a gallery composed of 12 former contestants) agreed, that answer was deleted and 1 point deducted from the score. However, if the jury disagreed, the first team won extra points. In the second part of the round, the team chose four out of five celebrities, whose pre-taped answers were then played. The team won a point if the celebrity gave a different answer, but lost a point if the answer was the same. After play finished on that question, the other team played the same category using a different letter (e.g., "L"). A second round, with double point values, was played with a new category. The team leading at the end of the second round won $500 and advanced to the bonus round. In the bonus round, a new category was announced and five letters shown; the team had 25 seconds to list 10 words, two words for each letter. Each celebrity was assigned a letter, and their pre-taped response was played. If at least three celebrities gave different responses than those given by the team of contestants, the team won the jackpot - $4,000 plus $1,000 per show it went unclaimed; otherwise, the team won $200 per celebrity not matched. Original episodes aired for 13 weeks, with reruns filling out the remainder of Scattegories' run. Apparently, most people thought playing the board game (which did not involve the celebrity element) at home was way more fun than watching it on TV. Coincidentally, everyone who competed received a copy of the "Scattegories" home game.moreless

    The Guys Next Door was a band that also hosted a sketch comedy show aimed at a teen audience.

    The show marked a departure from conventional wisdom about Saturday Morning TV. NBC had made a commitment to shy away from cartoon programming and introduce an entire live-action line-up on Sat. mornings. When ABC, won the much sought after contract with the band The New Kids on the Block, NBC created The Guys Next Door as a response. NKOTB was committed to an animated show to be aired Sat. mornings. NBC gambled that a live action show featuring a likable, clean-cut boy band would be able to compete.

    The band released one album, and NBC only aired 13 episodes of sketch show.moreless

    Based on the hit British series of the same name, Cold Feet is an hour-long adult comedy that explores the lives of three young Seattle-based couples involved in different stages of relationships ranging from marriage to parenthood to 'cold feet.' Adam Williams (David Sutcliffe) and Shelley Sullivan (Jean Louisa Kelly) are dating, but their rocky romance is further complicated by his boyish immaturity and her fear of commitment. Adam's best friends, Pete (William Keane) and Jenny Lombardi (Dina Spybey), who are married and deeply in love, are in the midst of re-defining their roles as they welcome their first baby. Meanwhile, Shelley's friends, Karen (Alicia Coppola) and David Chandler (Anthony Starke) are the devoted parents of a toddler, but their marriage is beginning to show the strain of their widely differing opinions on how to split their parental duties. 'The series is a romantic, sexy, humorous look at modern relationships and how we face being adults,' says Executive Producer Kerry Ehrin. 'It will be a roller coaster ride through the lives of these characters. Cold Feet is produced by Kerry Ehrin Productions / Granada Entertainment, in association with NBC Studios.moreless

    Chronicling the adventures of the titular duo, Mark and Brian were top-rated Los Angeles morning radio DJ's who week to week would try to accomplish some sort of fun and/or funny dream of theirs. Whether it be going weightless in the "Vomit Comit" that the astronauts use to train, becoming firefighters, coaching high school football or performing with The Temptaions the duo would infuse the show with the same sort of gently irreverent humor which defined their radio show. "The Adventures of Mark and Brian" ran as part of NBC's Sunday night lineup with "Eerie, Indiana" in the fall of 1991. It lasted half a season with some of the original shows never aired.moreless

    Unsuccessful sitcom based on male-bonding in an increasingly feminized universe (yes, even in working-class Chicago) -- sort of My Two Brothers Behaving Badly. Three blue-collar brothers in their twenties, born and raising in work-class Cicero, Illinois, attempt to co-exist peacefully when they find themselves living under the same roof once again. Harry Kulchak is a single, successful architect who lives in the ultimate bachelor pad, overlooking Wrigley Field in Chicago. He would lead the perfect life if not for his older brother Mike, who's been sleeping in the spare bedroom since his wife threw him out, and his younger brother Billy, a born hustler who dropped out of college to set up headquarters in Harry's living room. The brothers Kulchak find solace on the roof of the apartment building, where they can watch Cubs games for free, shoot the breeze, pontificate on the mysteries of life and love, and argue about who has to sleep on the couch. Paula Marshall co-stars as Lindsay Sutton, Harry's partner at the architecture firm, who's had a steady boyfriend for five years but is well aware of the sexual tension that crackles between them. Creators and executive producers John J. Strauss and Ed Decter describe the series as "a view of the world from a trio of guy's guys, a world in which the way women behave is very confusing, and kielbasa is considered health food.moreless
