Series cast summary:
 Himself - Host (1 episode, 2000)
 Himself (1 episode, 2000)


Game show where in the first round 49 contestants (numbered 1 to 49) are whittled down to six in the first round, where Dick Clark asks them mathematical word problems, such as, "What is the number of Brady kids added to the number of Backstreet Boys?". In the second round, the six survivors face off in a sudden death round where the answers are the numbers of the finalists (e.g., if contestant #14 is still playing, a question may have 14 as an answer). The round works like this: Dick Clark asks a question. Once one of the players thinks they know the answer, they must lock-in with an answer. If they are right and it's someone else's number, the player with that number is out. If they are right and it's their number, then that contestant stays in the game. But if they're wrong, they're out. The winner goes on to play the Wonderwall, where he/she can win one million dollars by answering 20 questions in three minutes. If the Wonderwall player misses three questions, or doesn't bail out ... Written by Brian Henke <> & Warberd <no e-mail>

I want the show back on TV
18 July 2004 | by (Feeding Hills, MA) – See all my reviews

I was glad I still had a tape with a few episodes on it and I enjoyed it! I would do good, if the show was back on! I was not old enough in 2000 to go on the show, but it's now 2004 and I am old enough to go on these shows that went off the air. I'm a big game show fan and I felt that Winning Lines would be a great show for me! I'm good with numbers and facts! I felt that shows like Winning Lines, should be given a second chance. Overall, I felt the show was a good game show. Dick Clark was a great host for show. Why was the number of contestants at 49? Why not 50? 50 was a perfect number. Also, I felt that the number of players should of decreased from 49 to 9 to 1. If you did it that way, you then could include the area code. This show will always be saved on a tape that I recorded back in 2000.
