Jackpot - NBC Game Show Here's a short clip from the only known surviving episode of the original NBC version of the riddle-based game show Jackpot (which ran from January 1974 to September 1975). It aired on January 3, 1975 and shows the largest "super jackpot" ever won: $38,750. That was an enormous sum by game show standards of the time. Geoff Edwards was the host. Edwards' funky wardrobe was the brainchild of NBC executive Lin Bolen--much maligned for axing Jeopardy! and Concentration--who wanted her network to have "studly" game show hosts.

I used to watch this show, but I forget a lot of things about it. Judging by the excited reaction of the guy who read the riddle, I assume the reader of the riddle got a share of the jackpot.

Jackpot's catchy theme was titled Jet Set. It was the theme for This Week in Baseball for many years.

The 70's funky wardrobe worked for some game show hosts but not all.

Sad to report that Geoff Edwards passed away on March 5, 2014 at the age of 83.
