My favorite is "Deal or no Deal". I love the way Howie interacts with the people and the ladies that open the cases are so relaxed and friendly.They try to make the contestants feel comfortable. What is your favorite game show and why?

"are you smarter than a 5th grader" is a definitely guilty pleasure of mine. my parents got me hooked on it. i love how snarky the kids can be, and i like how the bumbling contestants can make me feel better about myself ;)

i tend to catch it on tv by accident actually, or when i'm at my parents' house because they always DVR it. but i just checked and it looks like it next airs at 8 PM on fox on this thursday. not sure if that's the regular time slot or not. hope you enjoy it!

Deal or No Deal is my favorite new game show. I make it a point to watch it every time it comes on, even the reruns. But for some reason those fools never listen to me when I tell them to take the deal.... LOL. I also gotta say that I love Howie. He's cute as a button for his age. When I found out why he always tucked his hands in his pockets I was amazed that he would pick that type of work. Pretty interesting. My 2nd favorite is Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader. Jeff Foxworthy has the personality for this show. I don't get to watch this one as often as I would like. I believe the last one I watched was with the Dallas Cowboy's Cheerleaders on it. It was pretty good.

I didn't know that.Last night it was on and I missed most of it,because of just household stuff going on.But,it comes on again Monday or if a repeat comes on.I will pay closer attention.I too watch the repeats.When the show first came on I did not pay much attention to it.Then one day I was talking to a friend that I have known since I was 5 and she told me that she is addicted to that show,so I watched it to see why and got addicted too,lol.

He is a germ a-phobic. He puts wipes in his pockets before the show so that he can constantly clean his hands. That's why he also closes his hands to "bump" the contestants hands.

I guess my favorite game show is Deal or No Deal too. I wish they would change it up with the women though. Why is it that only a woman can open the cases up? I get tired of seeing women LOL. Put a man up there for a change. I think a man could make us feel just as comfortable also and give us women something new to look at.

Maybe you should email them and tell them that they should get the Chippendale guys there.Sounds good to me.

I always liked Family Fued, it was a fun game show..I always tried to guess what the # one answer was..I can't recall all of the game shows but i likes a lot of them..I also loved to watch the "newly Wed" too..I always thought it was funny how all the men got in trouble with their wifes for saying the wrong thing...

I like wheel of fortune, because I can play along and figure the puzzles out. I am a word game type person. Though I do like Who wants to be a millionaire and Smarter than a 5th grader.

I don't generally care for game shows but I like "Are You Smarter then a 5th Grader". Jeff Foxworthy is one of my favorite comedians plus, some of the answers people give are hillarious.

I like "Deal or NO Deal" too. I think my favorite is "Don't Forget the Lyrics". I love music and I love Wayne Brady. Its funny how I think I know the words to a song and then find I've got it all wrong.

I have really started likng the game "Don't Forget THe Lyrics". It is a game where contestants sing the songs to the tune playing and then it stops and the sing the last 3 words. if they get it right they win money. I think I like it because I love music of all kinds.

I loved Name That Tune growing up and a few years ago I loved that show where you go to the grocery store and you have to shop and buy the most to win. That was alot of fun to watch. !!HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!! **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

When I was growing up my grandma used to watch "The Dating Game","Jeopardy" and "What's My Line".Then when I got older,I'd watch, "Family Feud".And as an adult I watch "Wheel of Fortune","Jeopardy" and "Deal or No Deal". Me and my daughter used to watch that grocery store game show,but I can't think of the name of it.We don't get that cable channel anymore.

Yeah I also like that here in my place we had a Filipino version of deal or no deal that is hosted with one of our tv personlity. I feel excited when I'm watching the show it is like that I'm the one who is playing.

Now a days everything is a game show with the reality thing everything is a contest but I think if you are taking about run of the mill gameshows, it would have to be Jepardy and wheel of fortune

I don't really like reality tv shows too much.Most of them are very silly.My daughter and I liked "Dancing With the Stars" and I like "Extreme Home Makeover".I like the "Trading Spaces" and shows like that.

where do you see on TV this "deal or no deal"? are you from the Philippines? We also have a game show entitled Deal or no Deal in the PHIls... Its being hosted by Miss Kris Aquino. In fact its the number one game show here before the season was up... I do believe it will come back within the year for its new season.... Its fun watching people win and lose in a game show.....However, its more fun watching the show if the host is a very articulate one.... like Kris

I totally agree,you have to like the host.Iam in Virginia,United States and "Deal or No Deal" here is hosted by Howie Mandell.He is funny and a very nice person and it comes across to the contestants.
