Can You Guess What Game Show The PCH Prize Patrol Will Be On?

Psst…PCH fans…over here…

Hi! It’s Sarah S. from the Social Media team. You may not have recognized me, as I sit here dressed completely in black, hiding out in the shadows. You see, I’m trying to be stealthy. I have some very important and exciting information to share with you, but I’m not allowed to give it all away. Of course, I’ve never been good at keeping secrets and I’m even less accomplished at following directions. (Just ask my GPS how many times it’s had to recalculate!)

So here’s the deal, I’ll tell you what I can tell you and then I’ll give you some hints to see if you can figure out the rest. After all, no one said I couldn’t give hints.

Here’s what I can tell you:

Starting this Monday 12/31, the PCH Prize Patrol will be appearing ALL WEEK LONG on a very popular game show.

I know what you’re thinking! Sarah, you can’t just tell us that and NOTHING else! And believe me fans, I’m with you. That’s why I’m going rogue and giving you 5 hints as to what that game show is! See if you can figure it out from these hints:

1. The game show in question first aired in 1976 on ABC. It ran for 9 years before being cancelled, only to be revived 3 years later by a rival network. To date, it has been cancelled and revived numerous times.

2. Only men have hosted this show since its inception, and thus far, it’s had 6 different hosts.

3.  In 2001, the host of this show requested that the TOP Prize be increased from $10,000 to $20,000, which is what it stands at today.

4.  The game is played by teams, with the goal of being the first team to 300 points. If a tie occurs, the teams enter the tie breaker round known as “Sudden Death.”

5. The show has been known to produce “themed” weeks, which include teams made up of all-star athletes, soap opera stars, and even country music stars.

BONUS HINT: The Prize Patrol often describes themselves as one big happy “family”.

Alright fans, I’ve gotta go. I’ve probably already said too much. Have you figured it out yet? LEAVE YOUR GUESSES in the comment space below! And remember, you can always use PCHSearch&Win to get to the bottom of some of the clues I left you.

If you haven’t figured it out, (and even if you have) check back here on Monday for the OFFICIAL reveal from Danielle Lam!

Happy guessing!

Oh man, Sarah! Has to be FAMILY FEUD!!! with kissie kissie Richard Dawson as the first host! HA! I always wanted to get on that show with my 3 kids, since we think alike.. haha! Even though some of the questions now asked are really “silly or off-color,” I still like to watch and think Steve Harvey fits the show well… LOL! Can’t wait to find out if I guessed right Monday!

The PCH Version of “Family Feud” starts after February 28th when Family Members that have been there in your good times BUT ignored you in bad times find themselves Jockeying For Position on the Inheritance of “Who gets the 5k a week for life when I’m gone Feud”:) Would have to make a movie out of that one…:)

Family Feud and what a fun show. When you work with people as many hours as people generally do; you become family. At least that is my guess. No matter, have fun!

Gordon Smith said...

It is “FAMILY FEUD”. Goes to sudden death a lot in this game as I remember it. Most of the times when I have watched it. I always noticed how the opponents when they are up,the contestants put their left hand behind their backs before one or the other would buzz first. That person tries to give clues for the main topic of what it is on the screen. And if the person buzzed first,but didn’t guess correctly, than the other person has a shot at it. If neither could guess an answer correctly. The teams do it all over again.

Sorry to be persnickety, but the U.S. version of Feud has actually had more than six hosts…if you count Al Roker and Ricki Lake.

But I’m getting really persnickety.

Casey Abell said...

Technically, there were more than six hosts because Al Roker and Ricki Lake hosted very limited runs of the show. (In Ricki’s case it was one episode of Gameshow Marathon.)

But that’s really getting picky.
