Instead of all these IDOL shows, why doesn't some smart person bring back The GONG Show? ?

Who on earth could ever replace Chuck Barris and his insanity. ?
and besides, Gene Gene, the Dancing Machine is dead.
In a cruel twist of fate, he actually had diabetes, and both his feet had to be amputated.
A sad end, to the star of the show .
I wonder whatever happened to Jaye P. Morgan though?
Jamie Farr, of course, went on to fame in M*A*S*H.
And Chuck's own daughter, who use to appear on the later shows, died of an overdose.
It would be nice if they could re-create the original, but it would probably only be a pale imitation.

The GONG Show WAS brought back in 2017.
Will Arnett and Ken Jeong were frequently judges.
Mike Myers was the host but he was made up to play a host called Tommy Maitland.
