It should come as no surprise to any visitor here that Press Your Luck is Brian’s all time favorite game show. But there are plenty of other shows that have had a place in his heart, and he also knows a good game show when he sees one. If he and the rest of the team didn’t, do you think this they’d be here right now doing what they do?
Want proof? In the summer of 2006, Game Show Network aired a special series of shows honoring “The 50 Greatest Game Shows of All Time”. Discussion about these shows was very animated all summer long. In response to GSN’s countdown, game show fan and Bill Cullen historian Matt Ottinger brought the community together to compile our own list of the 50 greatest shows ever. The results are now posted below, along with GSN’s and TV Guide’s lists of the 10 Greatest Game Show Hosts. And not to be outdone, Brian’s list that was included in the fan voting is here as well.
Like all lists, it is possible that the ranking of these lists may have changed since the times they were originally written, especially amongst the fans. But there is a reasonable confidence that unless the right shows come along, what you see now is what is going to stick for all time.
