1970s / Concentration Final Episode - 1973
On March 23, 1973 the memory-based game show Concentration ended its hugely successful run of nearly 15 years as an NBC daytime program. In this clip host Bob Clayton bids a kind farewell to the show's loyal fans. Clayton hosted the show from 1969 to 1973. It had previously been hosted by Hugh Downs from 1958 through 1965. Clayton was the show's announcer when Downs was the host. Jack Barry, Art James, and Bill Mazer all hosted the show in the years between Downs' and Clayton's tenures. A few months into 1969, Ed McMahon replaced Clayton--which proved to be an extremely unpopular decision. When ratings started to tank, Clayton was brought back as host. Clayton died of cardiac arrest in 1979; he was only 57. Interesting bit of trivia: Concentration was the last game show to employ an organist to provide live music.
