Storyline

An updated version of the classic game show. Celebrities, each sitting in a square of a giant tic-tac-toe board, are asked questions by host Tom Bergeron. Contestants must then guess whether the celebrity's answer is correct or incorrect in order to gain control of the square and hopefully get three squares in a row.

Trivia

One week of shows would tape in one day which is why they could ensure the same guest for 5 "days" in a row. After each episode Tom Bergeron and the panelists would change outfits and then go tape another one. See more »

Tom Bergeron: You look stunned!

I cannot get enough of the show.
26 April 1999 | by (St. Louis, MO) – See all my reviews

This may be the third edition of the show, but it's worth watching.Whoopi is absolutely funny as the center square, it seems as if no effort is needed to make the show entertaining, Tom Bergeron is an excellent host, and it's nice to see Shadoe Stevens back in the announcer's chair.I hope this show is on well into the 21st century.
