*** end of list ***

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Whew that was some list and I guess I lied just a little bit because I have watched and enjoyed a few of the game shows that are listed. On the top of my list of course is Jeopardy which is followed by Let’s Make a Deal since they are iconic and still airing decades after I first remember seeing them. So what did you think of this list? Were and of your favorites left off the nomination list? Any winning picks so far? I’ll return to this topic when the winners are announced in the virtual ceremony. See you before that of course with other announcements.
