Plenty of things last 50 years.

Most people's parents, houses, even the odd dog.

But TV shows. 50 years. Very few. "Meet the Press" and, now, "Jeopardy!"

It was 50 years ago, March 30, 1964, that Art Fleming asked the answer instead of the question on NBC.

The show, created by Merv Griffin, has been popular for the better half of the 20th Century and the first part of the 21st.

Griffin, who hosted his own talk show, also created the other popular game shows such as "Wheel of Fortune," "Click," "Ruckus" and "Merv Griffin's Crosswords."

Here's the opening of the original "Jeopardy!" from March 30, 1964!
