Tony LaRussa on To Tell The Truth Tony LaRussa of the Chicago White Sox was the youngest manager in Major League Baseball when he appeared on the short-lived syndicated version of To Tell The Truth hosted by Robin Ward in 1979. Apparently he was unknown too as the impostors fooled the panel! LaRussa ended up accruing the third most wins by a manager in MLB history.

Lets Make A Deal - 1973 This is a full 1973 episode of the syndicated version of the game show Let's Make a Deal. Hosted by "America's top trader, TV's big dealer" Monty Hall, LMAD was fast-paced, goofy and fun. It was quite possibly the first game show to use psychology as its main ploy. Contestants often had to decide whether to keep cash and prizes already accrued or trade them for unknown entities hidden under boxes or behind curtains. The daytime version of LMAD began on NBC in December 1963, moved to ABC in September 1968, and ran until July 1976. In all, more than 3,800 network episodes were produced. Also several syndicated nighttime versions sprang up during Monty Hall's tenure as host and producer. Pretty prize presenter Carol Merrill became famous for her euphonic name. Monty's announcer and assistant Jay Stewart was often involved in presenting "zonks"--worthless gag prizes awarded to contestants who made bad decisions. (As of December 2013, Monty is still with us at age 92. Carol is 73. Sadly, Jay committed suicide in 1989 at age 71.) Check out those 1973 prices and enjoy!

Winning Streak - Forgotten Game Show Here is the only known complete episode of the word-based game show Winning Streak. Don't remember it? You're not alone. It only aired on NBC for six months from July 1, 1974 to January 3, 1975. Bill Cullen was the host. I can tell you one thing: a mediocre tournament Scrabble player would clean up at this game!

Real People - NBC Show Here's the intrduction from a 1980 episode of Real People--a popular NBC anthology show that ran for five years. Originally designed as a 'short-flight series' in the spring of 1979, it drew surprisingly strong ratings. Naturally NBC made it a regular prime-time show. Real People featured offbeat news stories and the exploits of eccentric folks shown to a live studio audience. The show had an overabundance of hosts. Among the regular hosts were Sarah Purcell, Byron Allen, John Barbour and Skip Stephenson. Real People finshed a strong 12th in overall TV ratings for the 1980-81 season. Its success spawned the very similar That's Incredible! on ABC. Here's a little-known fact: Richard Simmons was first widely exposed to American TV audiences on Real People.

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.

Rutles On Ed Sullivan 1964 I think everyone remembers where they were when they first saw the Rutles perform on the Ed Sullivan show on April 1st, 1964. I don't because I was stricken with childhood amnesia. At least I think I was. Anyway, I remember where I am now but I'm sure that will change.

The Rutles Piggy In The Middle Many considered the Rutles' Tragical History Tour more tragic than historical. When it was broadcast on the CBC on April 1st, 1968, it was even shown upside-down. People didn't know what to make of it. I realize now that what the Rutles were saying is that we ourselves should be upside-down when we were watching it. Then it would all make sense. Hundreds of young people all over the world joined me in doing just that. We were all part of something special. In retrospect I think it was all about the peace movement. It's hard to fight when you're upside-down. Mind you, the movie still didn't make sense, but the music was amazing.

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.
