I was delighted that y'all enjoyed the first post on quiz shows. Here is the second part of the series. Enjoy!!!!
While "What's My Line" was the most popular quiz show on the air, there were all sorts of other shows that were equally entertaining. A favorite of my parents was "You Bet Your Life" starring Groucho Marx with announcer George Fenniman. Here's a short clip that is Groucho at his best!
"Beat the Clock" with Bud Collyer was another favorite at our house. It proved that some people would do anything for money. And who could forget the Hazel Bishop ads?
Daytime TV had lots of quiz show. My mother watched "The Big Payoff" with Bert Parks and Bess Myerson -- like so many programs, there is no video available. She absolutely hated this show that made its debut in 1956. I always kind of liked the beginning! It was an attention getter for me.
Hope you enjoy these!!!!!!!!!!!! Next time we'll look at some of the more challenging programs.
