Fans of classic game shows, which aired in the 1950s and early 1960s, could enjoy their favorites again with Game Show Network's "Black and White Overnight." Each night, three classic shows -- always from the Goodson-Todman library -- aired during the two-hour programming block. Most frequently seen were reruns of Beat the Clock (1950), "I've Got a Secret" (1952)_, Password All-Stars (1961), To Tell the Truth (1956), What's My Line? (1950); some episodes of shows had not been seen since their original broadcasts (partly because of cigarette advertising, which has since been banned). Other shows which aired during the block included (but not limited to): Judge for Yourself (1953), Make the Connection (1955), _"Name's the Same, The" (1951)_, Number Please (1961) and Two for the Money (1952).

A Nostalgia Lover's Dream
18 October 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This is a great block of shows for someone who misses the time when game shows were one of the biggest ratings grabbers on television. I really love seeing "I've Got a Secret", "What's My Line" and "To Tell the Truth", especially the latter two. Sometimes I find myself actually answering for the contestant on "What's My Line" and I'm totally drawn in when it comes to trying to guess the real person on "To Tell the Truth". This is definitely a block of shows that everyone will enjoy.
