Winning Lines is an American game show that aired from January 8 to February 18, 2000, the day after its official cancellation. Based on the British version of the same name, it was considered as CBS's answer to the success of ABC's Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. Winning Lines was hosted by Dick Clark, directed by James Yukich and produced by Stone Stanley Entertainment in conjunction with the British production company, Celador. The announcer for the program was Chuck Riley.
This was Dick Clark's final show with the CBS Network. In the wake of poor ratings, it was canceled after 10 episodes, one of which never aired.
Why It Sucks
- This was only lasted for an half-hour, unlike other million dollar prime time game shows, which just lasted for one-hour.
- Terrible announcing from Chuck Riley.
- Horrible use of contestants.
