Game Shows of the 1940s

Game shows had been popular on the radio throughout the 1930s.  Radio shows like "Uncle Jim's Question Bee" and "Stop the Music" made the move to television, leading the way for other radio shows.  Soon, game shows like Cash and Carry were created strictly for television.  It was in this decade that Mark Goodson and Bill Todman first teamed up, laying the groundwork for their game show empire.
