Jackie Gleason Game Show Flop On January 20, 1961 a game show called You're In The Picture, hosted by Jackie Gleason, debuted on CBS. It was a disaster and the TV critics savaged it. The next week, instead of hosting the game show, Gleason appeared on the air to apologize for 'the bomb.' This time the critics loved Gleason's candor and praised him! This clip shows about a minute of Gleason explaining the game show's rules on January 20 and about eight minutes of his apology from January 27.

There's a great lesson here: When you screw up--admit it. Learn from your errors and move on.

Gleason continued to fill the time slot with a celebrity interview format under this new title, but the show was cancelled after two months.
