This Show Would Be Successful Today
21 January 2010 | by (St. Louis Park, MN) – See all my reviews

I saw a clip of Oh My Word with Jim Lange on another website and I thought it was a show that would be successful today since it had a nice blend of education and entertainment.

Based on the parlor game "Dictionary", the show featured two contestants and a panel of four celebrities with the object to determine which celebrity was giving the correct definition. Dictionary was also the basis for other shows and board games such as "Liar's Club" and "Balderdash." Oh My Word had its roots as a local show in San Francisco and later aired in syndication with Jim Lange as host. Unfortunately, it lasted only one season and was revived in the early 80s under the title "Take My Word For It." It too, wasn't a success and lasted only a season.

Despite its short national run, the show would work in the 21st Century on a cable channel that would be the right fit. We'll take our word for it.
