Trivia

On September 8th 2003, after twenty years with basically the same set design and gold and green color scheme, the whole set received a makeover and a brand-new look was introduced on the show to kick off the 21st Season. As a result...the base for the wheel, the puzzle board boarder, and the video wall boarders became Plexiglas fixtures that have over 200 specialized, computerized LED lighting instruments capable of up to 2 million different color choices interwoven into the framework. Later in the season, the bonus wheel was also updated with LED lights. See more »

Television's spin of fun every weeknight
2 April 2004 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

I have loved the Wheel of Fortune show, ever since Chuck Woolery first hosted it with Susan Stafford as lovely assistant; It was a joy to sit at the television and challenge your skills. There have been many changes to the show's original format,but it still is wonderful to experience a victory solving the bonus puzzle.Pat Sajak and Vanna White are a great team and make the show fun and exciting.Miss White is sparkling with her personality, and Mr. Sajak has a warm mannerism about him that you can trust.What is amazing is that this show is like the simple game of hangman!I think it is remarkable how a popular show came about through a child's game.I really Love It.
