Game Time: That's My Dog (1993)

Not long ago, we took a look at the Family Channel's short-lived Baby Races, which, in essence, was a reboot of a failed 1967 ABC daytime game, The Baby Game. Producer Richard Sherman was also responsible for another Fam game that was paired with Races on weekends, and managed to last a wee bit longer.

That's My Dog went through two hosts during the course of its run. Steve Skrovan (Totally Hidden Video) was the MC during the first season, but was replaced by second generation comic Wil Shriner, who was developing a solid reputation as a great game player on daytime TV. Unfortunately, Shriner wasn't given another game show gig to host after Dog was cancelled. Take a look at the sample episode provided by Jared Oswald, and see if you can figure out why that is, because I sure can't.

Forgive the poor quality of the video. Oswald must've uploaded this after transferring it from VHS to DVD. An inexact science, you know.

Rating: C.
