Classic TV: Take a Good Look (1959)

After making several appearances on What's My Line?, both as a panelist and a mystery guest, comedian Ernie Kovacs decided to poke fun at the genre by creating his own game show.

Take a Good Look lasted just 2 seasons (1959-61), but was later brought back in reruns during the late 70's in syndication, airing in New York on WOR. Kovacs' wife, Edie Adams, was a regular panelist, usually with the likes of Cesar Romero, Hans Conreid, or Ben Alexander (ex-Dragnet). Dutch Masters, for whom Adams was doing commercials well into the 70's, was the sole sponsor.

Let's, ah, Take a Good Look at a sample episode.

No rating.
