Monty Hall hosts this hilarious half-hour gameshow in which audience contestants picked at random, dressed in ridiculous costumes, try to win cash or prizes by choosing curtain number 1, 2 ... See full summary »
Hosted by Jim Perry, were contestants are asked questions about how 100 people answered a poll question then played a card game where they tried to guess whether the next card drawn from a deck in a sequence would be higher or lower.
Contestants guess hidden phrases by guessing letters one at a time. Contestants win money or prizes, as determined by a spin of the wheel, for each correct consonant they guess. But they have to pay to see what vowels are in a puzzle. The contestant that has amassed the most winnings at the end of a game goes on to play the bonus round, in which the player can win even more -- prizes frequently seen in the bonus round include automobiles, vacations and more cash.Written by
Merv Griffin hatched the idea for "Wheel of Fortune" as a child. During a long family car trip in the summer, he played Hangman with his sister Barbara in the backseat. Years later, he would take the idea and turned it into a game show. See more »

A big wheel, Lots of Prizes, Music....Oh, where does the time go?
I love wheel of fortune. It's arguably the best gameshow on TV and you have to have seen it at least once or twice.
The game is played as follows; 3 people are standing at a wheel with various dollar values on wedges, and they have to solve a puzzle by guessing letters with every spin of the wheel. whoever guesses the puzzle at the end of the game, wins the cash they've accumulated throughout.
Now for my 2 cents on the show. First off, I Love Vanna White. 56 years old and she outclasses just about any modern model, celebrity, singer, whatever. She'll be 70-something before she quits spinning letters.
But for Pat Sajak, he's a totally lovable guy, but he really looks like he doesn't care anymore. He's been doing the show for 30+ years, But now he just looks bored. But if Pat Sajak goes, Vanna would get lonely and eventually quit too.
Bottom line, I suggest you watch Wheel of fortune, If you like watching people play hangman for cash, you won't be disappointed.
