What Might've Been: Mindreaders (1979)

ESP was pretty big in the 70's. Mark Goodson & Bill Todman sought to cash in with Mindreaders, a short-lived NBC game show that ran just shy of six months (1979-80), and emceed by Dick Martin (ex-Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In), who was one of the celebrities rotating in Richard Dawson's old chair on Match Game at the time. Martin's only other game show hosting gig was the satirical Cheap Show, which aired in syndication.

Following is a sample episode with singer Jack Jones and actress Joyce Bulifant (ex-The Mary Tyler Moore Show), who was another semi-regular panelist on Match Game.

Had it been on earlier in the morning, maybe it works. No rating.
