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 3 Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Original Song: 30,000 Reasons to Love Me, Outstanding Directing in a Game Show and Outstanding Game Show Host - Wayne Brady.
