The Riddlers

If you woke up today wanting to see what it would look like if David Letterman hosted a game show, then my friend, today is your lucky day.

Heer he is back in the late 1970’s hosting a game called the Riddlers.

Part 1:

Part 2:

And part 3:

Ahh YouTube, is there nothing it can’t do?

As far as I can tell there were only ever a couple of episodes shot as pilots and the show was never picked up. In a way that’s good since if it had been we might never have gotten Late Night and the Late Show, but it’s kind of a shame because really, this isn’t too bad. It starts off a bit slow, but the more you watch, the more fun you start having trying to answer all of the riddles…and laughing at the poor play and reactions to the poor play of Debralee Scott. Dave is pretty good as a host, definitely a lot funnier than most of the hosts of the time.

If you have 20 minutes or so to kill, give this a look, it’s fun.
