CBS adds to its daytime game-show lineup with an updated version of the classic TV show of the 1960s, filmed in Los Angeles. Hosted by comic/singer/actor Wayne Brady, contestants -- often dressed in a wide variety of original costumes -- will still compete for money and prizes by striking wacky deals. Jonathan Mangum is the show's announcer, and Monty Hall, arguably the best-known host of the earlier version of the show, is listed among the new show's creative consultants. The program won 2 Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards for Outstanding Original Song: 30,000 Reasons to Love Me, and Outstanding Directing in a Game Show. Written by

When the Car Pong game made its debut, if a contestant landed a ball in any of the cups surrounding the car cup they did not win any money. It wasn't until a few weeks later when the various money amounts were added to the surrounding cups and a contestant could win varying amounts from $100 to $1,000 if a ball landed in any of those cups.
