What is TV’s longest running game show?

  • Family Feud
  • The Price is Right correct

    The longest-running TV game show is The Price is Right. Though Jeopardy debuted before in 1964, it has not aired continuously since then. It went off air between 1964 to 1975 and 1978 to 1979. No one has ever guessed the The Price is Right showcase exactly, until contestant Terry Kneiss was on the show. On September 22, 2008 Terry was looking at showcase-- a billiards table, a karaoke machine, and a 17-foot camper. When he guessed the showcase at $23,743, the price was exactly right. It was bedlam. The producers thought the fix was in and pulled the plug on the live show and Terry’s victory was not aired live. Even the host Drew Carey thought it was going to be a game show scandal. Terry did not cheat but was legitimately helped by his wife and Ted Slauson, a mathematician who had memorized the prices) and were in the crowd. Terry won both showcases.
