Storyline

In this five-day-a-week update of the 1950-1967 game show, four celebrity panelists tried to determine through questioning the occupation and/or related secret of the contestant. The panelists could only ask questions that could be answered yes, no or similar answer, with the contestant winning $5 per "no" answer (at least in the early years, this method of scoring was dropped after Larry Blyden became moderator). The game ended either upon 10 "no" answers, a panelist correctly guessing the player's secret or at the discretion of the moderator. The contestant often demonstrated his skill or product, though on many occasions the panelists were invited to try out the skill. During the final segment of the day, the panelists (now blindfolded) tried to determine the identity of a mystery guest who, as before, disguised his voice in an attempt to avoid being identified. On occassion, a new segment, "Who's Who?" required the panelists to correctly match occupations with four audience ... Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Not as great as the original, but good enough
8 November 2001 | by (Parkersburg, West Virginia) – See all my reviews

This version lacked the sophistication of the original, but thank goodness they had the common sense to retain Arlene Francis for this version. This version did have a few panelists that I never heard of then or since--I mean, who is Sherrye Henry?? That was one of the downside factors of this show, they tended to have panelists that were supposedly "hot" at the moment. Unfortunately, we don't hear of them today and are left with a "huh?". But it is still a fun show to watch in reruns.
