Quiz Craze: America's Infatuation with Game Shows

Synopsis

For more than 50 years, the quiz show has thrived on American television and radio. From Pot o' Gold and The $64,000 Question to Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy, quiz and game programs have entertained and informed millions of Americans, promoted and sold untold quantities of products, generated fortunes for their creators and producers, and filled the pockets of a multitude of jackpot winners. DeLong offers the first in-depth history of quiz and game formats available in print. He describes how mass communications transformed the old parlor guessing games into enormously popular features on radio and television and examines their impact on American society and the consumer marketplace.
