Are Game Shows Making A Comeback?


From June 11, 2019

There has certainly been a rebirth of game shows over the past few years. Some have never gone away, while others are brand new.

And that brings me to reboots. This sounds silly, but as a kid back in the 80’s I used to love watching Press Your Luck! You remember don’t you, ‘no whammies, no whammies…and…stop!’ The nostalgic part of my youthful self was almost excited to see that Press Your Luck is back, with brand new episodes. In fact, I think the reboot debuts tonight! I might watch for old time sake, but then again I might not. OK, yeah, I probably will (DVR after getting the kids to bed)! I’m sure it won’t be as good as the original as ‘sequels’ very rarely are, right? Plus, I’ve found very few things that I enjoyed as a kid that I also enjoy as an adult. But, you never know.

Do you have a favorite game show that you would like to see back on TV? Or maybe you like a current one like Deal or No Deal? Let us know at Facebook.com/classy97
