Daytime game shows would be played for lower stakes to target stay-at-home housewives. During the late 1950s, high-stakes games such as Twenty One and The ,000 Question began a rapid rise in popularity.However, the rise of quiz shows proved to be short-lived.Alternatively, a gameshow can be a demonstrative program about a game (while usually retaining the spirit of an awards ceremony).In the former, contestants may be invited from a pool of public applicants.Panel games had success in primetime until the late 1960s, when they were collectively dropped from television because of their perceived “low budget” nature.Panel games made a comeback in American daytime television (where the lower budgets were tolerated) in the 1970s through comedy-driven shows such as Match Game and Hollywood Squares.
The ,000 Pyramid and its numerous higher-stakes derivatives also debuted in 1973, while the 1970s also saw the return of formerly disgraced producer and host Jack Barry, who debuted The Joker's Wild and a clean version of the previously rigged Tic-Tac-Dough in the 1970s. The Prime Time Access Rule, which took effect in 1971, barred networks from broadcasting in the 7-8 p.m.
The 1970s saw a renaissance of the game show as new games and massive upgrades to existing games made debuts on the major networks.
The New Price Is Right, an update of the 1950s-era game show The Price Is Right, debuted in 1972 and marked CBS's return to the game show format in its effort to draw wealthier, suburban viewers.
