GAME SHOWS - FALL OF '75
by Billy Ingram

Here's a page from a 1975 TV Guide (Central NC edition), notice how many celebrity laden game shows there were crowding the mornings.

Game Shows / TV Guide listing for 1975

Game Shows / classic game show host Adam WadeA game show resurgence was under way led by ratings blockbusters The Price Is Right in the mornings and Match Game in the afternoons. One of those shows, Musical Chairs, was hosted by Adam Wade, the first black game show host in America. That show was interesting in that they booked musical stars rather than the TV-centric guests on other AM shows.

I attended a taping back in '75 when the musical guests were Sister Sledge. Unfortunately the game was convoluted, there was a musical number involved as I recall, and they had fallen behind so each episode opened with what was supposed to be the final round from the day before. I don't know if they ever got caught up before the game was cancelled after only four months.

The Magnificent Marble Machine was a favorite of mine, the game culminated with a contestant and star playing an enormous pinball machine that I understand was prone to breaking down a lot leading to some long taping days. The series was the second flop to replace the long-running game Jeopardy which ended in January of 1975. The show was retooled in January of 1976 so that only the stars played the Marble Machine. The show debuted in the summer of '75 and ended in the summer of '76.
