Clip o' the Day

Hey, how about a game show clip? Specifically, one of the very best game shows ever -- Split Second, which I can best describe as a more intense Jeopardy!. Hosted by Tom Kennedy, the main game featured three contestants. Kennedy would ask a question with three different parts, and all three contestants could answer one part -- depending on who buzzed in first. Ah, just watch the clip -- this is the first part of the show, which is in four parts (you should be able to get to all four after each part ends).



This is the last episode of the show, which ran from 1972 to 1975. (A brief revival ran in 1986, hosted by the show's creator, Monty Hall.) One of the contestants, Judd Rose, later became a reporter for both ABC and CNN, and yes, that researcher introduced at the tail end of part 4 is the same Markie Post.

Split Second
Elsewhere on YT, there's an ep of SS where Michael Russnow competes.

The more I see SS reruns, the more I agree with your take. "This show screams for a revival."

Re: Split Second
Of course, I think that about many classic shows, but yeah, there's definitely a place for this one in the market.
