You Bet Your Life

The game show You Bet Your Life started as a radio program that migrated to TV. The game was basically an excuse for host Groucho Marx to interview the contestants and show off his considerable ad-libbing skills. The simplicity of its format allowed for it to run simultaneously on radio and television on NBC networks from 1950 to 1960. It was supposedly the very first TV show filmed before a live audience (and because Groucho could sometimes get a little raunchy, it was also edited before airing). Still one of the funniest game shows ever; we have 16 episodes below.
