a new feature called "Games Gone By," which resurrects forgotten game shows from decades ago. The folks at Game Show Forum might be interested in this material.
This week's forgotten effort is Rhyme and Reason, a Match Game knockoff where celebs had to fill in the blanks with rhymes. No doubt the showrunners got the idea from Nipsey Russell's doggerel on Match Game and other game shows. Sure enough, Nipsey often (perhaps too often) graced Rhyme and Reason.
GSNN really likes the show, and it was hardly the worst comedy effort in our little genre. Bob Eubanks hosted with the required aplomb, and there were enough laughs to keep everybody happy. The show succumbed to tough competition, though, and only lasted for one season in 1975-76. You can watch a sample ep on YouTube.
GSNN also suggests a revival on Comedy Central. The network could do - and has done - much worse.
