5. Scrabble (1984-1990)
This glorification of the wordsmith's favorite board game, with its lame double-entendres, wasn't terribly noteworthy. It did, however, have one thing going for it--sound. The faint, delightful clunking sound made by contestants when they entered tiles into their podiums was a pleasant result of pre-overblown-technology-television game shows. The sounds of Chuck Woolery's voice and hosting abilities were worth triple points when compared to the many painful-to-watch hosts of late.
