From the very beginning of television, classic game shows came out as popular entertainment. Contestants would jump at the chance to be on show like The Price Is Right, Password, To Tell The Truth, Truth Or Consequences and The Newlywed Game for a chance to win valuable prizes and the viewers would get just as excited as the contestants who won them. With relatable contestants and smooth-talking hosts like Bob Eubanks and Bob Barker, game shows at their best were highly entertaining human drama.
