|My personal favorite|
10: Match Game-Sammy the Songwriter
9: Family Fortunes- A Type of Bean
8: Merv Griffin's Crosswords-Letters of Discharge
7: Who Wants to be a Millionaire-John Carpenter Phones a Friend
6: Card Sharks- Thanks, Bill
5: Jeopardy! Tool Time
4: Wheel of Fortune- Final Spin
3. Double Dare- Egg on My Shoe and A Song In My Heart
2: Press Your Luck: Michael Larson's victory
1: Super Password- It's Rude to Laugh
Only one from overseas, number 9, with all the others from the United States. Six from pre-2000, then #4, #5 and #7 from the previous decade. (Man, even Millionaire is looking old now)
A lot of these aren't too funny, and the audience over-reacts mainly because they are there. #9, #8 and #3 in my opinion are more unheard of than anything that's happened on more world-renown Jeopardy!, Password and Wheel of Fortune.
Did not expect to see any GSN show here, but some of the best ones are the Catch 21 $50K win and the biggest GSN win in history up until 2011.
Oh, and the article does have one GSN mention. Apparently GSN airs classics Saturday mornings.
