Million Dollar Wheel falls off

I heard that the newest incarnation of Wheel of Fortune here in Aussie land was axed by Channel 9, adding to its programming woes this year. Not surprising – I watched bits and pieces of it and it is nothing compared to the classic days of John and Adriana on Channel Seven.

Games shows like that seem to be often identified hand in hand with the hosts that made them popular, such as Tony Barber/Glenn Ridge and Sale of the Century, and John Burgess and the original Wheel. I’m not sure that Burgo could make the show a winner again, but him and the long gone moustache are what I most readily identify with the show – that and the old fashioned bankrupt sound (which I believe has been updated). Tim Campbell is no John Burgess.
