The Object Is

Show Summary

Showing that imitation is truly the sincerest form of television, The Object Is was a hybrid of CBS's Password and NBC's You Don't Say!. It was Dick Clark's first gig as a game show host.

Two celebrities and two contestants and split into teams, and the object is to convey a famous name using inanimate objects as clues. It can be one or two-word clues, no proper names or hyphenated words. The first clue is worth 10 points, the second 7, the third 5, and the fourth and last clue 3 points.

First team to 15 points wins the game, and two games wins the match. The winning player here pairs with the celebrity and rattling off as many items relating to an object shown to them in 30 seconds. Each item is worth $5.

The Object Is was canceled on March 27, 1964 and replaced by Goodson-Todman's Missing Links, which had moved from NBC (to make room for a little show called--you may have heard of it--Jeopardy!). Clark would host Missing Links as its NBC host, Ed McMahon, contractually bound to NBC.

    7.0
    Not exactly a bad way to past time. Although I have had more enjoyable moments. The Object Is does have its high points although I certainly wished there were more of them. It left me bored not long after I was exposed to it and that certainly is not saying something entirely positive about it. Nonetheless, it is very well packaged so a 7 rating I feel is very fair.
