  • Notes

    • (1) "WML?" SPONSOR WATCH: The opening sponsor for this final live show to air prior to the official cancellation notice was the Yellow Pages telephone book.
      (2) "LIVE" WATCH: This is the 40th surviving kinescope of a live telecast from within the post-Kilgallen era to maintain the original "live" wording intact and uncut on announcer Johnny Olson's intro.
      (3) "WML?" PANEL WATCH: Jayne Meadows is introduced first for only the second time since Dorothy Kilgallen's passing. She thus becomes the second female guest panelist (after Phyllis Newman) to be introduced first more than once in this era. And her hubby Steve Allen is pulling double-duty as a panelist this evening, as he also appears on the prerecorded EPISODE #850 of February 19, 1967 which was taped immediately prior to tonight's show.
      (4) RAPACIOUS RIDDLE ALERT: After a three-year lull, Bennett sprung another "riddle of the week" which, as usual, was as lame as any one of his customary bad puns, convincing John that the publisher/panelist couldn't take his upcoming Barbados vacation soon enough:
      "Q: What is covered in salt and has a twisted mind?
      A: A thinking pretzel."
      (5) "WML?" CREW CREDITS AND CREDITS CRUNCH WATCH: Beginning with tonight's episode, the end credit slides transition from one to the other via an up-to-down wipe, rather than dissolving as was the custom up to this point. And as of the February 4, 2008 airing of this show, GSN's fiendishly filthy "crunching" of the screen during the end credit sequence was still there for all to see.
      (6) Following GSN's February 4, 2008 airing of tonight's show, the cable and satellite channel ran the December 17, 1962 edition of "I've Got a Secret." This episode was sub-hosted by Henry Morgan who was filling in for vacationing regular host Garry Moore; Mr. Morgan's usual seat on the panel was filled by David Wayne, who sat in alongside Bill Cullen, Betsy Palmer and Bess Myerson. The celebrity guest was Arthur Godfrey. - W-B (2008)
