Trivia

After the 2nd pilot bombed Lin Bolen still believed in the show and made a last ditch plea to NBC. Bolin made a deal with them, to put Wheel of Fortune (1975) on the air and if it's no good NBC could fire her, but if it works she gets a raise. NBC executives gave Wheel of Fortune a green light but wanted Chuck Woolery back as host. The first episodes of Wheel of Fortune were taped in December of 1974 and premiered in 1975. Within weeks, it became not only the #1 show on NBC daytime, but the #1 show on daytime period. See more »
