The Gong Show
Friday, March 06, 2020      11 comments

The Gong Show, in my opinion, was one of the worst shows on TV, & it ran from 1976-80 on ABC. Chuck Barris was to blame, er, I mean he was the host. Amateurs compete in a talent show. Three celebrities would judge them. If the act was just too a... Read more
