Online Pick of the Week (10/16): Hot Potato

I’ve mentioned a few times that it’d be nice to see some more Sony classics taken out of the vault and be dusted off for airing, and this is one of the classics I have in mind.

For those who did not have GSN in the early 2000’s, or if they missed out on the Viewer’s Choice Marathon in 2007, Hot Potato was a short-lived show which ran in early 1984 on NBC by the people of Barry-Enright Productions, best known for shows like The Joker’s Wild. It was hosted by Bill Cullen and featured two teams of three people of the same profession or some type of similarity, like Moms to Be, 411 Operators, Waitresses, Telegram Singers, Grocery Checkers, etc.

It looks like a Family Feud knock-off, and well, it is. But there’s still a really nice type of charm with this. I love the twist with the teams of people representing their professions. Bill does a great job interacting with them as he usually did with contestants on the shows he emceed. Makes me wish they hadn’t switched to all celebrities later in the run. Again, I have no problem with a week or something of that nature that is all-star, but permanently is too much.

I think this could work really well on weekend mornings on GSN, considering the limited run and episode count. It especially could have worked during the same time The Money List was airing considering the similarities between the two shows.

Hot Potato, my online pick of the week!

I liked Hot Potato, and I agree it would be a good show for GSN to air on the weekends. I thought the theme music was awesome. However, the show went downhill when it had celebrities.
