This is the famous line up on those Network Daytime Game Shows during the Summer of 1972 just weeks before the return of CBS Game Shows including The New Price Is Right. This list is in Eastern Time Zone:
10:30 - NBC - Concentration - With that longevity this game show now hosted by Bob Clayton was still going strong.
11:00 - NBC - Sale Of The Century - By this time the second host of its original run was hosted by Joe Garagiola. It may have gotten top ratings but this game show was still holding on its own.
11:30 - NBC - The Hollywood Squares - This Peter Marshall classic was the Number One Game Show in America with all its fun and zaniness.
But now the competition starts here........
12:00 - NBC - Jeopardy! - This original classic hosted by the late great Art Fleming was still going strong with its fast paced hard quiz style.
12:00 - ABC - Password - This updated and stylish classic returned and so did Allen Ludden. It was competitive to Jeopardy! and looked more fashionable with their set.
12:30 - NBC - Who What or Where? - This hard quizzer was hosted by the late great Art James. It was a hard quizzer but it was rather easy going compared to both Jeopardy! and........
12:30 - ABC - Split Second - This ultra fast paced hard quizzer can only be done by Tom Kennedy and he was the right man for the job even if the show at times would outpace Tom Kennedy, himself. Fast paced, high energy, and the winner could go home with a new car!
1:30 - NBC - Three On A Match - Two late great legends can associate with this game show. The producer was Bob Stewart and the host was none other than Bill Cullen. It was a decently fast paced true or false quizzer which had a respectable run as it entirely went up against............
1:30 - ABC - Let's Make A Deal - Monty Hall, Jay Stewart, and Carol Merrill were the head honchos of this legendary game show with all the prizes, zonks, and fun! Funny then as it is now!
But the competition ends here with.........
2:00 - ABC - The Dating Game - Jim Lange was still doing this original run of this game show for seven years and it did not look like it will come to an end.
2:30 - ABC - The Newlywed Game - Bob Eubanks was still having the laughs, jokes, and all the fun as it was still going strong with the original run for six years.
