Gong Show Debuts on this day in 1976!
One of my all time favorite shows Debuted on Flag Day in 1976… Now, yes, this show was stupid. It was dumb. It was humiliating, but it was also fun… and original in some ways.
Check out this Clip of Chuck Barris, who of course went on to bring us shows such as the Dating Game and the Newlywed Game. They Just don’t Do TV like this anymore… Call me crazy, but I’d rather watch this any day over some “reality” show!
