Storyline

A long-running quiz show hosted by TV veteran Jack Barry, and later by Bill Cullen. In this show, contestants would have to answer questions on a wide variety of topics, with the prize money determined by a slot machine-style device. The winning contestant could then move on to a bonus round, where they would play a slot machine for a chance at even bigger prizes, but with the risk of losing everything.

Trivia

"The Joker's Wild" concluded its run on CBS Daytime June 13, 1975. A year later, in the fall of 1976, repeats of the CBS Daytime "Joker's Wild" resurfaced on Los Angeles station KHJ, which paved the way for the new syndicated version of "Joker's Wild," which debuted a full year later in September 1977. A children's version, "Joker! Joker! Joker!" aired over local stations from September 1979 to September 1981. See more »

Fun game show
18 July 2006 | by (Chantilly, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

First off, I must say that this is a fun game show. Also, since I'm 24, I haven't seen every episode. However, I do know the show very well. Every time I've watched it, I've had a lot of fun playing along and watching. Despite the fact that it's finished its run, this makes me long to be a contestant. The thing I like most about it are the questions. Despite the fact that I don't know that many answers, I still have fun playing along. I hope the Game Show Network keeps it on so I can play along and watch again. If that happens, I will be really happy. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that I'll always remember this show in my memory forever. Now, in conclusion, I hope that you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.
