Created in 1963, Let’s Make a Deal (LMAD) has become one of the most unique game shows in the world. Studio audience members are selected to become “traders” and make deals with the host. Traders are given an item with value and will have to decide whether to keep it or exchange it for an unknown item that has equal, lesser (a “zonk”), or greater value, in what is referred to as a deal.
The interactive nature of the show makes it easy for viewers to play along at home. What makes LMAD stand out from other game shows is that many audience members dress outrageously in costumes and as characters to increase their odds of being noticed to become traders on the show.
Monty Hall, who served as the original host, co-created the show with Stefan Hatos, which originally aired on NBC in 1963. Over the past 6 decades, the show has aired on NBC, ABC, and CBS, which is home to the most recent incarnation. Between the three networks, LMAD has aired over 6,000 episodes over the years, and in its current version, actor-comedian Wayne Brady serves as host.
