I really only like the original run. It had serious class. Something about the reboot lacked something. It must be that the panelists were a great bunch, although some of the original panelists would appear on the second run.

Oh, I was referring to the Carson show. :D But concerning WML, I agree, the newer ones just weren't nearly as good, even when the same panelists were on. I think John Daly had more to do with it than anything else.

I see! Well, usually the ones that I post here are ones I saw on TV. There's a channel called Decades on antenna that shows Carson and I believe that's the channel that Dick Cavett is on, as well.

Here's a delightful interview with Florence Hodges, a 93 year old hospital volunteer.

I'm posting this for the interview of 104 year old Maude Tull. She came on her birthday to appear on the show. The talk before that about the tips on how to know you're about to be fired was fun, too. The interview with Tull starts around the 18 minute mark. https://youtu.be/XeZI3u_voQs

Sidenote: I find the "More To Come" artwork between breaks very cool. Maybe one day I'll find a way to make a blog about the many cards used in his show.

Also a warning in case you want to watch the whole thing - a comment expresses exasperation that the uploader apparently cuts off the last interview of the show. I watched this on tv, so obviously I didn't have that problem.
