- Inside ‘Let’s Make a Deal’
In the popular game show “Let’s Make a Deal,” contestants
(called traders) win prizes through pricing or guessing games, then
have to choose between trading a sure win for something that could
be bigger, or could be a booby prize. The more enthusiastic a
contestant is, the better chance they have of getting on stage and
Monty Hall hosted the show from its inception in 1963 through 1977.
Each game traditionally ended with a Big Deal, in which traders
could select one door of three to win the prize behind it. The
mathematical odds behind winning this game have been hashed over
and over in what came to be called the Monty Hall Problem.
Several movies set in the 1970s used clips of “Let’s Make a Deal”
to establish realism, including “We Are Marshall.”
The current edition airs on CBS at 9 a.m. daily.

Turn on CBS at 9 a.m. today, and you just might see your
Michael Garcia, of Lodi, made it on stage at a July taping of
“Let’s Make a Deal,” the popular game show, and even went home with
a prize. For him, the experience was a little surreal between the
dancing, costume-wearing crowd, the bright lights and all kinds of
loud, zany music.
