Richard Dawson Cracks Up One of the first clips I ever posted on this website was the famous Family Feud "September" answer which left normally unflappable host Richard Dawson unable to continue. Here's another clip along those same lines. What might you talk to a total stranger about? Mutual friends, of course!

Celebrity Sweepstakes - Game Show Celebrity Sweepstakes was an NBC game show that aired from April 1, 1974 to October 1, 1976. It was hosted by Jim MacKrell. Here's how it worked: A panel of six celebrities was asked a trivia question. Before knowing the exact question but only the category, the members of the studio audience, through an electronic voting system, determined the odds of each panelist answering the question correctly by selecting whom they thought was most likely to give the correct answer. Based on those odds, the contestants wagered money on a celebrity and then found out if the bet was a good one. Celebrity Sweepstakes was originally slotted against Search for Tomorrow where it did not fare well against the popular CBS soap opera. It was then moved to 10 a.m. where it routinely bettered The Joker's Wild in the ratings. However, when CBS expanded The Price is Right to an hour, Celebrity Sweepstakes was blown away. For years it was believed all Celebrity Sweepstakes episodes had been erased by NBC, but obviously this one survived. This is the final eight minutes of the final show from October 1, 1976.

Sad Decline of Benny Hill In 1990 The Benny Hill Show was airing in reruns in 97 countries around the world--but not in Great Britain where it had originated. The scourge of political correctness had forced Thames Television to end its association with Hill in 1989 after 20 successful years. Thames defended the move by saying Hill's periodic specials were becoming too costly, viewership was down, and the 65-year-old Hill was looking tired. However, by the late 1980s it was becoming unfashionable for Hill's sexually charged farcical comedy skits to be shown on British TV. (One anti-Hill crusader wildly blamed The Benny Hill Show for all the sexual assaults in the UK!) Hill did not need the money, but he did miss being on TV. He had open offers to appear in Las Vegas and name his price, but Hill did not want to make the journey overseas. Hill was a true loner who never married and was not known to have had a long-term relationship with anyone. The few friends he had said his dismissal by Thames was akin to handing Hill a death sentence. With assets worth more than 7.5 million British pounds, Hill was a bit of a miser. He never owned a car, he did his own shopping, and he lived in a very modest flat. He was also a slob. His flat was usually filled with dirty dishes, papers strewn everywhere, and dirty clothes on the floor. A friend once asked him why he threw his clothes on the floor. "Because they won't stick to the ceiling!" was his pithy answer. In February 1992, the 68-year-old Hill suffered mild heart attack. He was ordered to go on a diet. Two months later he died of another heart attack while sitting in a favorite chair in front of his television. His body was not discovered for three days. Hill's will had not been updated since 1961. The will's beneficiaries (his parents and his sister) had already died. The comedian's vast fortune was eventually split among nieces and nephews whom Hill had barely known. Among those who considered Benny Hill a comic genius were people as diverse as Charlie Chaplin, Michael Jackson and Walter Cronkite!

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.

Exhumation of President Taylor - 1991 President Zachary Taylor became the second American chief executive to die in office when he succumbed to gastro-intestinal problems on July 9, 1850 at age 65. Known for generally having robust health, Taylor had been ill for five days with severe stomach cramps and diarrhea. The cause may have been Taylor's overindulging in cherries covered in iced milk following a Fourth of July ceremony on the site where the Washington Monument was going to be erected. Doctors tried to cure the president with blood-letting and laxatives, but to no avail. The cause of Taylor's death was officially listed as "cholera morbus"--which apparently was an all-purpose answer whenever someone died suddenly from digestive problems in the middle of the 19th century. There was no autopsy. The dead president's body was preserved in ice for five days but never embalmed. More than 140 years later a historian named Clara Rising claimed Taylor had actually been poisoned by arsenic, perhaps by political enemies. (Taylor, despite being a slaveholder, was an outspoken pro-Union man. He had threatened to use the army to quash any secessionist movements.) Rising's compelling arguments--plus her willingness to pay $1200 in fees--persuaded officials in Kentucky to exhume Taylor's body from his crypt and perform modern scientific tests on it. The exhumation was carried out on June 18, 1991 with about 200 curious onlookers watching silently from a respectful distance. Modern forensic examination of Taylor's fingernails, sideburns, and even pubic hair showed no signs of arsenic poison whatsoever. Taylor was re-interred alongside his wife at Zachary Taylor National Cemetery in Louisville, KY. Today the medical community believes that the purgatives that Taylor was given by his physician to cleanse his system may have contained mercury which may have hastened the president's demise.

Family Feud - Mutual Friends Answer One of the first clips I ever posted on this website was the famous 'September' answer from a 1982 episode of Family Feud--and host Richard Dawson's uncontrollable reaction to it. Here's another answer that renders Richard equally helpless.

Good Heavens - Failed 1976 Sitcom Does anyone remember this short-lived sitcom from the spring of 1976? Good Heavens starred Carl Reiner as Mr. Angel--a visitor from the hereafter who descends to earth to answer wishes and do good deeds for deserving people. Reiner was the show's only recurring character. Guest stars included Susan Dey, Florence Henderson, Penny Marshall, Alex Karras and Don Ameche. Only 13 episodes aired sporadically on ABC from February to June 1976. Here is the show's intro. Don't blink: It runs for a mere 17 seconds.
