1 9 6 1 – 1 9 6 6 (Australia)
This early game show from the Australian Nine Network was hosted by American Tommy Hanlon, although he firmly believed the contestants were the actual stars.
“I like people,” he said. “I worry about them; sometimes I feel happy about them, sometimes I feel sad. I think my liking for them gets through to them, and they like me”.
The Australian viewing public proved he was right by writing him 50,000 letters a week.
