Since 60% of my television viewing is game shows, especially those in the 70's. So there was a fairly easy quiz.

10/10. Rip Taylor was great...
10/10. Ignore what METV said about Rip Taylor doing double duty as both host and creator of $1.98 Beauty Show. He was only the host, Chuck Barris created the show.

Does anyone remember the name of a short-lived game show which was on in the very early 70's (71-72 time period)? I'm pretty sure it was on CBS but don't remember who the host was. It consisted of two pairs of celebrity spouses answering questions and playing for someone in the audience. I do remember it was on in the middle of the afternoon (like 2-3pm).

Tattletales maybe?

Tattletale a had 3 sections. The yellow was called the banana section. Bert Convey hosted. Dick Gautier and his wife at the time, Barbara Stewart were on it alot.

No, it wasn't Tattletales (although that one had celebrity couples also). I believe the show I'm thinking of lasted only one season. This show never "sequestered" the spouses backstage; they would sit right next to each other and point to a board with answers to a question. I'm trying to remember which couples appeared on the show (I was in grammar school at the time and saw it during summer vacation).

Cross-Wits, Liars Club or Celebrity Bullseye? I looked in Todd Wacha's All Time Fav. Game Shows.

It might be I'll Bet with Jack Narz. Couples would bet on whether their spouse could answer. The was also He Said She Said with Joe Garagiola

9/10, lost my marbles. I had either heard of them for sure or guessed based on the rhythm and or alliteration of the answer choices. That worked pretty well.

I did the same thing on a couple.

10/10! On the last question, you couldn't decide if the last word was machine or show. It was machine!
