About This Quiz

SURVEY SAYS ... take this quiz! When we take a break from our favorite drama or sitcom shows, we're probably watching a TV host lead their way through a game or an interview. From talk shows to game shows, can you match the TV host to their show?

The first TV talk show was hosted by Joe Franklin in 1951. Three years later in 1954, NBC would debut the world's longest-running show and it was The Tonight Show. While the world of talk shows began in the '50s, game shows began earlier than that. The first game show ever to appear on TV was Spelling Bee. Simply enough, the show was exactly what the title would lead to you believe it is - a spelling bee.

Since then, these kinds of shows have bloomed and grown in popularity, and much of this is due to their TV hosts. Could you match the TV host to their show?

Some of the most famous talk show hosts to light up the TV screens are Oprah Winfrey, David Letterman and Conan O'Brien. What would the world of game shows be without Alex Trebek, Bob Barker and Pat Sajak? More recent singing and dancing competitions have put Ryan Seacrest and Tom Bergeron at the top of the list of TV hosts. With all these popular TV hosts, could you match them to their show?
