by Steve Ryan, Fred Wostbrock, David Schwartz. Except for the mania over the big prize game shows in the early 1950's and the brief resurgence of their popularity with "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire," game shows have mostly been the province of day time programming and syndication.

The star-studded signing for The Encyclopedia of TV Game Shows. It seemed like every host and announcer was there. An unforgettable night and a great kick-off for the Fred Wostbrock-Steve Ryan-David Schwartz tome. The grey haired gent is Jack Narz. the line with Gene Wood. There's co-author Steve Ryan and the lovely Maggie Mckay. Of course you recognize the unofficial mayor of showbiz, Gary Owens at the display. 26 July 2019 ·.

But for game show geeks, The Encyclopedia Of TV Game Shows is a must. When it’s not confirming that yes, there really did used to be a show where contestants competed to operate a giant pinball machine (that would be The Magnificent Marble Machine), the book points to short-lived, barely remembered games like the Nipsey Russell-hosted Your Number’s Up. Plus, it has plenty of pictures-which is perfect for anyone who wants to see a publicity still of David Letterman flanked by Betty White and Larry Storch on The Liar’s Club.

The book does an excellent job discussing the games and how they were played. It also gives some interest tidbits on the famous personnel, such as Bob Eubanks, Bill Cullen, Wink Martindale, etc. The problem is a book that had such first hand knowledge by insiders should have gone deeper. Why did some of these well established shows such as Jeopardy, Concentration, Password, Dating Game, Newlywed Game suddenly run a ground? Why did Let's Make a Deal jump networks? What were the ratings for all the game shows for a season, not just the position and not just the top three. Why did some short-lived shows like Break the Bank (70's version) get cancelled quickly when it was the second highest rated game?Full bios of the men (and woman) behind the questions. What a treat to have these insights from people who were insiders, not simply someone doing analysis.

Perhaps I am spoiled. Christopher Schemering's The Encyclopedia of TV Soap Operas does this and so much more. I was hoping this book would be a true companion to understand what daytime TV was in it's heyday, but this work pales in comparison.

The first one in the history of classic game shows in history.

I must admit that I'm only 13, but I watch Game Show network a lot! I found game shows in here that I never even heard of and ones I had forgotten about like "Press Your Luck"(used to be my favorite). Now I can show my friends these old game shows that I watch! This book has every game show thinkable and a little blurb about when it was started, syndicated, the rules, and the general description. Some even have highlights of certain moments. Very well done!

Very accurate, very informative, THE authoritative source on TV Game shows! One minor criticism is that the book is not as pictorial as it's previous edition and the numerous pictures really helped to enhance the game show information in the book. But it is nonetheless the BEST off-line game show source EVER!

Wink Martindale, Alex Trebeck, Bob Barker, Pat Zajac, Bob Eubanks, Bill Cullen, Allen Ludden, Gene Rayburn and Johnny Carson are just a few of the game show hosts we grew up with and they're here in this book.
Relive so many memories from The Price is Right, Let's Make a Deal, Family Feud, Double Dare and so many others. You find out about the show, who hosted it and what the game was about.
Sit down and take time to look back at what is the most complete book on television's hottest, brightest weirdest and worst games shows in history all packed into this 350 plus page scrapbook.
Once again Facts on File has given you a real winner and this one is sure to please everyone. By the way who hosted Bank on the Stars? Or Child's Play? Or better yet Pass the Buck?

I use this book constantly when I need info on my favorite game shows. I've noticed there are still a few inaccuracies but hopefully those will be updated in future editions as the TV game show makes a triumphant return

This book is a must for all TV game show fans! (and who isn't?) 55 years of game shows complete with rules and game summaries! All of the popular favorites are included! You'll find: "Pyramid" ,"Price Is Right" , "Match Game" , "Jeopardy!" "PressYour Luck" and more! (Did you know that "Press Your Luck " was based on a short lived 1977 game "Second Chance"? I guess the "Whammy" brought the concept luck the second time around.) This complete guide also includes more obscure TV Game Show treasures like "The MoneyMaze" (1977) which starred George Clooney's dad Nick Clooney, and the most exciting ,fast-paced game show "Whew!" (1979)which starred game show legend Ton Kennedy. You'll find all of your favorites in this great book! I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE FOURTH EDITION! And THE FIFTH! SIGN ME UP!
This is without a doubt, hands down, the best game show book ever! I purchased this several years ago at another bookstore and could not stop reading it from the moment I read page one. This has all the important details described about game shows from the past to the present (at the time 2000). The picures, layouts, and summaries add up to a fantastic reference book. Those of you pre-teens and young adults who missed the 70's and 80's shows--watch GSN and relive the classic days of when game shows were fun. I strongly and highly recommend that if you're a game show fanatic like me (pre-Reality show days) and you want to know all about what the game show era was like, GET...THIS...BOOK. You won't be disappointed.
