This was a quirky show. Occasionally people were just plain bad. I really enjoyed this over American Idol. Sorry people. This was a light-hearted, not very serious judging panel made up of comedians. The judges would decide to gong a contestant, if they mostly agreed the person wasn't good enough. The host of this show was not the straight-laced, serious person typically seen on other game shows. He basically was the final arbitrator, but would show his comic side as well. When I grew up, people would frequently copy this style of judging in and out of school. If you were to see the show today, there would definitely be the 70's flair here.
