Game shows have certainly come a long way. The very first game show to debut on TV was a simple concept. Spelling Bee debuted in 1938 before being followed by Truth or Consequences. These would grow to include The $64,000 Question of the 1950s and What's My Line of the '60s.
Game shows would grow to have a common theme. The contestants would test their knowledge for a certain amount of money. This theme can be seen in Jeopardy and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? While game shows were heavily centered around general knowledge, they would grow to include competitive shows that would test the talents of their contestants. These might include America's Got Talent, Last Comic Standing, and Dancing with the Stars.
