To Tell the Truth (1990)

Show Summary

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).
