US Daytime Game Show 1969-70 350 episodes x 30 min (70 weeks) (Pilot 1968)

Host Vin Scully
Announcer John Harlan

Premise:
Three celebrity couples compete in question and answer game winning money for a studio audience member.
Summary:
The program will call upon members of the studio audience to second-guess the judgment of three married couples,
each consisting of a celebrity and his or her spouse. The guest panelists will answer questions related to a
variety of interesting and humorous situations. During the first week of colorcasting, for example, panelists
will be asked to guess how many college students are inside a small foreign car that appears on stage.
Since 'it takes two' to complete an answer, the husband and wife of each team will give their opinions individually,
and the combined average of their responses will represent the teams' answers. A member of the studio audience has
an opportunity to win cash prise by guessing the couple with the answer coming closest to being correct.
