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.
