Here is the second part of "What Went Wrong?". This is where we discuss game shows that could have or should have been better, but they failed. Last week was "Card Sharks 01". This Week it is "The Joker's Wild" and "Tic Tac Dough": the 90's version.
After the successful stints in the 70's and 80's, the fall of 1990 marked the return of two legendary hits. The Joker's Wild and Tic Tac Dough came back to television with new looks and new hosts for the 90's version. Pat Finn was the host of the new look Joker's Wild and Patrick Wayne hosting the new look Tic Tac Dough. These two hosts had some tough shoes to fill. Jack Barry and then eventually Bill Cullen for TJW and Wink Martindale and then Jim Caldwell for TTD. Unfortunately, these two shows only lasted one season. What went wrong with these 90's remakes?
