Did you grow up on game shows? There's something so soothing, so iconic, so fun about game shows. They were on at the same time each day. You knew the rules. You got to know and love the hosts.

Some game shows have millions of loyal fans and give away millions in prizes.

Some people loved the more human, personal shows, like those that challenged how well couples knew each other or how good people were at grocery shopping. There even arose a crop of athletic game shows, like American Gladiators, American Ninja Warrior, and the many obstacle course competitions out there today.
