  • Notes

    • (1) "WML?" SPONSOR WATCH: Tonight's opening sponsor is Supp-hose Sheerest Stockings.
      (2) "LIVE" WATCH: Tonight's show is the 44th known existing kinescope of a live episode where the word "live" is cut from the intro.
      (3) "WML?" FONT WATCH: For the first time in several weeks, Futura Demi Bold is once again in use as the overlay font for occupations and mystery guest names. However, its appearance is now different than in prior shows; the kerning (adjustment of space between letters) is set so that the individual letters are farther away from each other than was the case with the typeface up to this point. It also appears to be a slightly thicker font, suggesting it was a bit smaller in point size. It is this variation of Futura Demi Bold that will be in use on most "WML?" episodes for the rest of its "classic CBS" run. However, with the final contestant, News Gothic Bold is once again the occupation overlay font.
      (4) About Sheila MacRae's upcoming appearance in a new stage production of "Guys and Dolls," it was around the period she was appearing in it (as "Adelaide," with frequent "WML?" guest panelist Alan King as "Nathan Detroit") that Jackie Gleason approached her to play "Alice Kramden" in what would come to be called the "Color Honeymooners" episodes of "The Jackie Gleason Show," more than a year after tonight's show.
      (5) "WML?" CREW CREDITS WATCH: Tonight, Larry Schneider is credited in place of B.A. Taylor as audio engineer.
      (6) Following GSN's December 11, 2006 airing of tonight's show, the channel aired an episode from the 1980-1981 version of "To Tell the Truth," hosted by Robin Ward. The first contestant was legendary animated cartoon director Chuck Jones and two impostors. The second and final contestant was the founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics, Mary Kay Ash, and two imposters. The "TTTT" panelists were Pat Collins (from "Good Morning America"), comedian Nipsey Russell, former Canadian First Lady Margaret Trudeau and "the toast of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania," John Wade. - W-B (2006)
