Jonathan Mangum is the show’s announcer, and Monty Hall, arguably the best-known host of the earlier version of the show, is listed among the new show’s creative consultants. The program won a Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Award for Outstanding Original Song in 2014 for “30,000 Reasons to Love Me,” composed by Cat Gray and performed by Wayne Brady.

Wheel of Fortune

NBC • 1983 • IMDb: 6.7

Wheel of Fortune

The show features a competition in which contestants solve word puzzles, similar to those used in Hangman, to win cash and prizes determined by spinning a giant carnival wheel.

The core game is based on Hangman. Each round has a category and a blank word puzzle, with each blank representing a letter in the answer, and punctuation revealed as needed. Most puzzles are straightforward figures of speech that fit within a mostly static list of categories, and this list has evolved over the course of the series. Crossword puzzles were added to the rotation in 2016. In such rounds, a clue bonding the words in the puzzle is given instead of a traditional category. Contestants win by solving all the words in the crossword by saying them in any order, but contestants may not repeat or add any word (such as “and”) while solving the crossword. The titular Wheel of Fortune is a roulette-style wheel mechanism with 24 spaces, most of which are labeled with dollar amounts ranging from $500 to $900, plus a top dollar value: $2,500 in round 1, $3,500 in rounds 2 and 3, and $5,000 for round 4 and any subsequent rounds. The wheel also features two Bankrupt wedges and one Lose a Turn, both of which forfeit the contestant’s turn, with the former also eliminating any cash or prizes the contestant has accumulated within the round. Each game features three contestants, or occasionally, three two-contestant teams positioned behind a single scoreboard with its own flipper. The left scoreboard from the viewer’s perspective is colored red, the center yellow, and the right blue, with the contestants’ positions determined by a random selection prior to taping.

Hosted by Pat Sajak, this game show features 3 contestants who try to solve a puzzle by spinning the wheel and guessing letters in a word or phrase.

Guy’s Grocery Games

Food Network • 2013 • IMDb: 6.5

Guy's Grocery Games

The set is laid out in the manner of a typical supermarket, whose 10 aisles are stocked with a wide range of foods that include fresh produce, meat/poultry, and frozen items. Each chef has his/her own station for preparing and cooking food. Three judges officiate in each episode, introduced by Fieri during the first round.

In each round, Fieri assigns a dish (usually a general type such as “a fried feast” or “an upscale dinner”) and issues one or more challenges that the chefs must fulfill. Challenge types include games or random drawings to determine ingredients that must be used, items or aisles being declared off-limits, and an upper limit on the total number/price/weight of ingredients. In the absence of any pertinent restrictions imposed by Fieri, the chefs have 30 minutes to collect their ingredients in one trip, using a standard shopping cart, and prepare/plate their dishes. They must cook and plate four servings (one for each judge and a fourth “beauty plate”) before time runs out.

At the end of each round, the judges taste and evaluate the dishes and select one chef to be “checked out,” or eliminated from the game with no winnings. On occasion, the chefs compete through only two rounds instead of the usual three and/or face two eliminations at the end of a single round.

Cutthroat Kitchen

Food Network • 2013 • IMDb: 7.3

Cutthroat Kitchen

“Cutthroat Kitchen” isn’t a typical cooking competition. A player, in addition to being a good chef, must be able to outwit and, at times, sabotage opponents to win. Each episode features four people vying in three rounds to win up to $25,000 cash. At the beginning, $100,000 is split evenly among the players to spend however they wish during the game. The chefs spend the money at auctions to get things that could help them — like buying exclusive use of salt — or hinder their opponents — like prohibiting them from tasting a recipe in progress.

Each round eliminates one chef, until there is a winner. Although the competitors want to make purchases at auction to improve the chances of winning, they don’t want to spend too much; the amount remaining in the winner’s bank determines the ultimate prize. Some special tournaments — usually seasonally themed — stretch across multiple episodes and offer higher amounts of money. Alton Brown hosts.
