It Takes Two - Forgotten Game Show NBC came up with a new idea for a daytime game show in 1969 called It Takes Two. Three teams of celebrity couples participated. Each team member had to provide an independent numerical answer to a question asked by host...Vin Scully! (Scully is the greatest baseball announcer of all time; this point is not debatable.) Each team's two answers would be condensed to an average. A contestant, often located in an NBC studio in another city, would then guess which couple came closest to the true answer. If he/she were successful, a prize or cash would be awarded. It Takes Two debuted on March 31, 1969 and ran until July 31, 1970. Its airtime was supposed to be weekdays at 10 a.m. across the country, but many NBC affiliates shuffled it around on their schedules in favor of local programming. Here's a ten-minute clip from a 1970 episode. It Takes Two was briefly revived in 1997 on The Family Channel and was hosted by Dick Clark.

As a huge fan of Vin Scully, this gig seems to be beneath his dignity.

According to a Scully biography I read recently, TV critics generally hated It Takes Two but they loved Scully as its host. One said Scully exuded the same type of lovable charm as Art Linkletter.

Gordon MacRae doesn't exactly come off as a brilliant game show player in this clip. This show was taped in 1970. He is told that the oldest dog was born in 1936, but he somehow guesses it lived to be 52 years old. Egad!

This would be a fun show to do today using Skype with the contestants.

It reminded me just a little bit of Celebrity Sweepstakes where studio audience members handicapped which celebrities were most likely to know the correct answers to trivia questions and contestants chose the celebrity based on the calculated odds.
