    I watch jeopardy almost every night. We also really like Cash Cab and Lingo. I also like family feud.

    I love watching the older ones. Sometimes the older answers on Family Feud or Card Sharks are pretty funny or shocking. The prizes make me laugh on the older shows too. It's like going to a museum. lol

    Here's a YouTube clip of it. I watched it when I was a child in the 80s, but they made a modern version of it a couple yrs ago that didn't last long. I don't believe it's on the air anymore at all.

    I LOVED SUPERMARKET SWEEP!!!

    Either just before or after that aired there was another show I really enjoyed as a child. The final game of the day required that they went "shopping" at different stores and hoped the mysterious boxes were worth a certain amount... What was that?

    I liked Supermarket Sweep too!
    I also grew up watching Price is Right (I had watched it since I was in preschool but don't care for it with Drew Carey)
    I like watching Jeopardy if they have categories I might do well in!
    Press Your Luck and Double Dare were fun too!

    I used to watch Price is Right (it's hard to watch since I was always at work when it's on, but now that I won't have a job for a little while [hopefully not that long], maybe I'll watch it again!)

    I watch Wheel of Fortune every night

    I do too because I am stupid good at it. I auditioned in college but I didn't get it. You have to have an obnoxious personality to be on that show. But the audition was fun. They asked what I would do if I won and I did a pretty elaborate dance. I can't believe they didn't take me. lol.

    I used to LOVE Double Dare and Family Double Dare on Nickelodeon!! :)

    Jeopardy is my favorite for sure! :)

    I love the older game shows for sure -- with hosts named "Wink" and clues using the expression "making whoopy!"

    OHH I used to love Sale of the Century when I was a kid. I didn't know they had a new version. I don't like the gameshows that they try to update.
