Even before there was such a thing as television, there were radio game shows. It's clear we haven't grown tired of them, as many of the original formats and shows are still enjoyed by viewers today. However, which of the countless available panels, sweeps, puzzles, and quizzes are the cream of the crop? Game shows have been around for a long time, and EW has compiled a list of the very best ones.

Card Sharks has one of the more complicated game show formats, but the contestants' attempts to answer questions like "How many of the 100 married women we surveyed lived with their spouse before they tied the knot?" are still a lot of fun. One player guesses a number, and the other player must determine whether the number is higher or lower. The winner of the game guesses whether the next card to be revealed on the board will be higher or lower in value. The smarmily entertaining Joel McHale will be hosting this show for ABC in 2020 and 2021.

Let's pretend for a moment that Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? was actually held, only this time it was in a taxi. To earn money while being driven around New York by host Ben Bailey, that's basically how Cash Cab works. It's a fun and potentially lucrative way to kill time on the road, but players are eliminated after three incorrect guesses. The fact remains that we've all had worse cab rides than this at least once in New York.

The title may imply otherwise, but The Chase requires no actual physical effort on your part. However, the mental effort required to complete it is quite substantial. A Chaser, a trivia expert, faces off against three contestants in each episode. Each player has a certain number of questions they must answer correctly in order to stay ahead of the Chaser on the game board and bank money for their team. And then, in the Final Chase, the remaining players answer a series of bonus questions before the Chaser tries to "catch" them by answering the same number of questions correctly. We assure you that applying this will be a breeze. Jeopardy legends James Holzhauer and Brad Rutter star in the reboot airing on ABC, but fans will also enjoy the original Game Show Network series, which features the hilarious and merciless Chaser Mark "The Beast" Labbett.

Dating Game is another Chuck Barris masterpiece; eligible singles ask questions of three faceless contestants before choosing one to go on a date with at the end of the show. Stars like Dusty Springfield, Ron Howard, and Sally Field made appearances on the original ABC series, which ran from 1965 to 1973. Future celebrities like Farrah Fawcett, Burt Reynolds, and Suzanne Somers also made early appearances on the show. The show was revived in 2021 with Zooey Deschanel and Michael Bolton as co-hosts and an all-celebrity cast competing on ABC.

The slimiest and messiest situation This Nickelodeon favorite was unique among the game shows we considered because it featured both physical challenges—such as spraying whipped cream into a cup your partner held in his mouth—and obstacle courses. Before extreme sports competitions like Wipeout were popular, life was simpler.

Our survey of one hundred people asked, "What are the top five reasons Family Feud should be displayed here?"

5. The beginning of each episode is graced by heartwarming family portraits displayed in the side panels of the set.

You can't really do anything to get ready for the show other than to not be an idiot.

3 The game show has had more hosts than Hugh Hefner has girlfriends, with Richard Dawson, Ray Combs, Louie Anderson, Richard Karn, John O'Hurley, and most recently, Steve Harvey.

Who doesn't enjoy the cheap thrill of throwing things at the television whenever a player gives a stupid answer?

One, it's fine with us that we don't know who the "100 people surveyed" are or how the show finds them.

In a related note, Louie Anderson says that contestants on Family Feud would fight during the commercial breaks.

In many ways, this Chuck Barris creation is the grandpa of America's Got Talent. Judges like Arte Johnson, Jamie Farr, and Rip Taylor, all from the upper echelons of the entertainment industry, gave their opinions on the contestants' questionable performance abilities. The judges on The Gong Show literally ''gonged'' bad talent off the stage, as opposed to simply buzzing an ''X'' to eliminate them from contention.

It was similar to, but superior to, The Dating Game. Before the show, the bachelor or bachelorette would pick a potential date from among three contestants of the opposite sex; during the show, the studio audience would vote for the contestant they thought should go on a date. Chuck Woolery, the show's original host, would conduct interviews with the eligible bachelors and bachelorettes, and if the audience's choice coincided with the bachelor's or bachelorette's, they were given a free pass to go on another date. Ah, the romance of commercialism.

The contestants were given snippets of well-known songs and asked to, "Name that tune!" Name That Tune appears to have inspired both Don't Forget the Lyrics and The Singing Bee, so it's safe to assume that this format is a big hit with audiences.

To test how well they knew each other, newlyweds answered questions. Many marriages ended as a result of the show's infamous fights between couples who, it turned out, didn't know each other as well as they'd thought.

Our only comment is, "No whammies," because we have nothing else to add. Absence of one-two punches We'll break it down for you in case you have no idea what we're talking about. Therefore, the game show had two rounds: the first was the players answering questions, and the second was them performing some sort of task. They were presented with a large game board in which they hoped a flashing light would land on a dollar or prize square rather than a "whammy" space, which would nullify any winnings.

Each team on this game show consisted of a famous person and a regular Joe or Jane. When the team was working together, one member would provide clues for a specific category, such as "Things That Are in Egypt," to the other members of the team. Words like "pyramid," "sphinx," and "Cairo" might provide hints. In each round, contestants had to answer questions in six different categories that, when combined, formed the iconic pyramid. Prize money has varied widely over the years, from $10,000 to $100,000.

The game show To Tell the Truth reimagined the classic What's My Line format. twist on the traditional celebrity panel game show format in which two contestants are impostors and one is the real person described by the host. That actual individual has taken an oath to tell the truth (hey, the show is called "The Truth") while the other two try to fool the panel by any means necessary ABC brought back To Tell the Truth, another golden era game show staple, with Black-ish's Anthony Anderson as host in 2016.
