Come on Down........

Survey are the Weakest Link...Goodbye!'s time for a summer of fabulous prizes and famous celebrities as I Deny You the Nidus! counts down the Top Ten Game Shows of All Time (that I've seen).

I have taken my years (and years) of watching TV Game Shows and have put those shows through an exhausting scientific formula to arrive at the Top Ten Game Shows of all Time (that I've seen). Said formula consists of:

1. Me watching actual episodes of a game show.
2. Deciding if the game show is worthy of being in the Top Ten of all time.
3. Ordering the resulting shows in a Top Ten list.

"But FDot," you say, "how do I know your list is definitive?" Well....back off hater! My finger has been on the pulse of the zeitgeist for a long time. And after a Lysol wipe it was more than ready to order some game shows in a definitive list. You don't agree with me? Comment away. I'll prove you wrong.

Not only will we be looking at the Top Ten shows, we'll take a look at some Honorable Mentions, some that just missed the Top Ten (ie. #11-), some that never came close and a little bit of trivia here and there.

And it's quite possible that the contestant who answers the most trivia questions correctly will win some freshly baked chocolate chip cookies! (contingent on me finding time to bake them).

Let's get started......

Jeopardy is my all time favorite. I also liked Wheel of Fortune (I miss the crappy prizes they had to choose from).
As a kid I liked the Gong Show and the $1.98 Beauty Contest - I had no taste. And there was one were they had prizes in presents and they could swap them. I think they had to do some funny challenges, too.
Oh yeah, and Name that Tune.

Michelle: I loved when they had the crappy prizes on Wheel of fortune! IT killed me what they had to choose from. The Gong Show was always fun as was Name That Tune.
