Vision, Sit your ass back in that chair7 Comments
He has always been my favorite with Bob Barker being a ver close second - wisconsinboy
He is number 1 not 2
He is number 1 this show wouldn't be the same without him
Longtime host of "Jeopardy!" has matured like a fine wine through the years, but this Canadian native can still be just as irreverent when he first started.5 Comments
Gene Rayburn was hilarious on Match Game and Alec Baldwin has proven to be quite the successor to Rayburn - wisconsinboy
Gene is very good
Favorite game show ever! Gene was the leader of that always great, star studded panel. His energy was infectious and you always felt better after watching the show than you did before it started.
By far my fave with the warmest, funniest personality of them all. Used to watch these in the 70s as a kid and am surprised at how funny they still are on the old game show channels.8 Comments
He and Steve Harvey are the best hosts of Family Feud - wisconsinboy
Best Game Show Panelist and Host ever! Always loved his witty attitude and tendency to make everyone feel calm on the camera! Richard is absolutely the best! Family Feud forever!
Richard is the greatest game show host ever! So handsome, witty, hilarious and warmhearted. There's no one like him and never will be!
Richard is the sexiest game show host of all time.I wanted to be on family feud and match game just so i could get kissed by him .
I LOVE HIM!!!!!
Best host on Who Wants to be a Millionaire followed by Meredith Vierra - wisconsinboy
Number 6? Is that your final answer?
He has great sense of humor too. Without him, Wheel of Fortune would not be on television today. - wisconsinboy
One of only FOUR Veterans in Hollywood (& in good company with the likes of Eastwood & Selleck! ),funny, personable & always on top of his game (pun intended)
He and Vanna White are a perfect fit for Wheel of Fortune just as Chuck Woolery and Susan Stafford were - wisconsinboy
WHAT?! Pat only at number 46? He's such a funny guy and he's easily the best host ever! - Medmac3 Comments
Good looking, funny, charming, unflappable and a Texan. The total package.
The most handsome host!
The man who started Wheel of Fortune in 1975! I think Merv Griffin did the right thing to hire him instead of Edd Byrnes who was very drunk on the pilot episodes - wisconsinboy
THE quintessential game show host.
The bespectacled Pittsburgh-native hosted more game shows than anyone else, including the original "Price is Right". His wit and warmth are legendary.
Seemed like a genuinely nice guy who treated everyone with respect. Also had a quick wit and sly sense of humor. Adapted easily to every show he hosted.
This gentleman showed respect to the contestants and had a warm spontaneous humor plus intelligence -- compared to none other.
Should have been named # ONE.1 Comment

He's the funniest and most entertaining man on television. - Smash64
He is the best host
He is pretty funny on Family Feud - wisconsinboy12 Comments
He made Deal or no Deal suspenseful and fun. He was hilarious but added enough tension to the show to make it compelling T.V.
I like Howie with the gloves
HE IS THE HOST FOR DEAL OR NO DEAL PLUS HE IS THE ONLY ONE FROM HERE I KNOW PLUS TOM BERGERON!
A really, really sharp guy, he made this the with his sharpness the best modern game show hands down, and continues to
54 years old, and still has his charm.
There is no one who was best at hosting Newlywed Game aside from Bob Eubanks and he and Jim Perry were great on Card Sharks, better than Pat Bullard which I thought his version of Card Sharks was a travesty. - wisconsinboy
True man of integrity and old school values - very relaxed and kind but excellent skills of making contestants feel relaxed and free to be themselves.
Bob Eubanks was great. He was funny, got along great with the contestants, smart, an handsome.
Best host of Tac Tac Dough - wisconsinboy
He even has a YouTube channel showcasing many rare game show related gems and oddities.
He was great on Hollywood Squares and AFHV - wisconsinboy
AFV is kind of overrated in my opinion - TheInsomniac
The only one who can ever host America's Funniest Videos is this man. No doubt about it.
Host of Hollywood Squares, fill-in host of Millionare, and of course, the king of AFV. - BKAllmighty2 Comments
Nobody made me laugh as hard as Chuck Barris... god I miss that show - buck_1469
For everyone, lucario is the most badass of the fighting types, and on the top of the most badass steel types, he have badass movepool and badass abilities, in my opinion, LUCARIO IS BADASS!
I think he and Richard Dawson were the best host of the Family Feud. Both were very good. Sad what happened to Ray Combs.
I like him. Too bad he commited suicide.
Awesome host, great personality. One of the best, past or present.
Password would not have been he same without him or Betty White - wisconsinboy
Witty, charming and personable. Nice wife too (Betty White).
The original Jeopardy man!
He hosted Family Fued for a bit.
Not many people in the Americas know him, but he kicked butt as the host of Family Fortunes for 15 years. - Darrell
He was kinda stodgy at first... But he became my favorite. But I understand he was very busy with other endeavors. Sorry to lose him!
The Current Face of FAMILY FEUD! -
He is watched by my family every night he is comedy gold!
Why is he here. He's the worst - RockStarr
He is so epic
On the Amazing Race, I love how he can move his eyebrows in different locations
Best host of Card Sharks followed by Bob Eubanks! - wisconsinboy
Mr. Supermarket Sweep himself
Sure, Americans may not know him that well unless they happened to have watched the short-lived "Bruce Forsyth's Hot Streak" in the mid-80s, but having seen some of his other shows online I have to say he's right up there with Mr. Barker, Mr. Trebek, Mr. Sajak, and Mr. Harvey.
If not best, definitely best looking
Host of Press Your Luck. Died in 2006 due to a plane crash.
She did the best fakeouts
Hollywood Game night love her in that
He was good on Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader and was the perfect host for the show.
