Tom Kennedy is a class act, and I think he and his brother Jack Narz are the two most underrated hosts, period. They were both so good, but so much of their work was either wiped, buried in a vault, or short-lived. Tom has always struck me as being such a friendly, fun person who really respected the people on his shows, and I agree that he could make any show his own. And always with that happy grin!
Tom Kennedy was a better Password host than Bert Convy.
This post reminds me of something else: Allen Ludden blew puzzles too on occasion (you hear himself point that out on later episodes in his run sometimes), but his mistakes of that caliber were edited out. He was way more reserved about these kind of things compared to all the other hosts, especially Bert.

Great thread, Tom Kennedy has always been my favorite host. My two favorite shows of his were Whew! and Wordplay, both of which have unfortunately slipped into oblivion except for a few episodes on Youtube.
That's where I have to say "Out with the old, in with the new", and that's what happened in the 1980's with "Password"Originally Posted by JMFabianoRPL
