Jack Barry, Charles Van Doren, Vivian Nearing

September 12th,1956-October, 16th 1958 

This quiz show was NBC's answer to the popular CBS quiz the $64,000 question and was hosted by series co-creator Jack Barry. Contestant Charles Van Doren proved to be the most popular of all the show's contestants although Elfreda Von Nardroff went home with the most money after twenty-one appearances. The two contestants were placed in isolation booths where they were asked a series of questions. Van Doren would often make pained facial expressions in his booth when asked a question he was struggling with. It was discovered later that Van Doren had been given some of the answers. Another contestant, Herbert Stempel blew the whistle on the show accusing the program of giving some of the answers to the contestants. In October 1958 the show was removed from the air as the quiz show scandal was becoming more widely-known.

In this episode, Charles Van Doren loses to Vivian Nearing. Van Doren's total winnings were $129,000. Host Jack Barry congratulates Van Doren as "a credit to the youth of America."
Due to the scandal, creator Jack Barry did not work again on national television for a decade.
