I'm fine with reality game shows, even though I hate most of them. Really liked Junkyard Wars though.

As for panel games, I was thinking more along the lines of The Match Game or To Tell the Truth. I love Whose Line, but I don't consider it a real game show.

I'm not thinking of Whose Line. I'm thinking of The News Quiz or Never Mind The Buzzcocks, that sort of thing. :)

I'm fine with stuff like The News Quiz. That reminds me of one of the NPR shows I've heard, but can't remember the name of.

I wondered why with all the support it was getting everyone wasn't switching to game shows. Really hoping that wins. Just a little over 24 hours to go!

Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me.

I'm pretty sure you're right.

There was another radio show, pretty recently, where one guy played a well known piece on the piano, but altered it to be in the style of a well known composer. Then the contestant was asked to identify both the piece, and whose style it was in. Does anyone know what the name of that was?

That's been done on a few BBC shows starting from one in the fifties but a search on that description turns up Piano Puzzlers on NPR which seems the most likely candidate.

Okay, game shows it is. I'll be starting a new topic in a matter of minutes. Now keep in mind, this will be my first time hosting a LoC, so suggestions are welcome.
