Storyline

Two contestants, one a champion, competed in this variant of the popular series "Concentration." Host Cullen shows the contestants eight answers on a 3-by-3 game board; they have eight seconds to study the answers before they are concealed. Cullen reads a question; the first player to ring in called out the number where he/she thought the correct answer was hidden. Wrong answers were usually very funny (e.g., "What redhead starred in 'I Love Lucy' with her husband, Desi Arnaz?" Incorrect answer: "Elmer Fudd"). Two such rounds were played, with each correct answer worth 10 points in round one and 20 points in round two. The first player to score 100 points won $100 and played a bonus game. In the first weeks of the show, players had to correctly match up the names spouses of celebrities and other famous people, which had been scrambled. Later, players called out numbers on the Eye Guess board, with seven numbers revealing prizes and the eighth concealing a "STOP" sign; clearing the ...

Bob Stewart's First Game Show as Packager a hit
13 February 2008 | by (St. Louis Park, MN) – See all my reviews

Eye Guess was the first game show I remember watching growing up in New Jersey. It was also the first game show produced by Bob Stewart after he left Goodson-Todman to become his own boss. The game itself was rather simple. Two contestants studied a board of eight questions and had to remember their location to questions asked by host Bill Cullen. Revealing wrong answers could be very funny and that's one aspect of the show that turned out to be a hit. Also, Cullen as host did an outstanding job, keeping the game moving and injecting humor after a wrong answer. The bonus round lacked consistency thought the one i remember the most was the one with seven prizes and a "Stop" sign. The contestant who found all the prizes before the "Stop" usually won a car.

The show got a boost in 1967 when it was moved to the time slot after the original Jeopardy. It would have had a longer run if a new NBC daytime vice president didn't do a mass canceling of game shows such as You Don't Say and the original Match Game in 1969. Eye Guess is a show that should be revived. They need to get the right host and not tamper with the main game.
