** When ''Price'' returned in 1972, there were two versions: the daytime series then hosted by Bob Barker, and a nighttime version hosted by Dennis James (until 1977, then also hosted by Barker until its demise in 1980). James hosted the daytime episodes of December 24-27, 1974 because Bob had the flu on the taping date, the only time to date that daytime ''Price'' has had a guest host.

Charlie, Johnny Gilbert, and Don Morrow all filled in for Jack at various points (including Spring and Summer 1988, shortly before and after Clark's death), and Don Pardo did two weeks taped at Radio City Music Hall during M.G.'s tenure.

** ''Wheel'' also had a guest ''director'' for some weeks in Season 31. Longtime director Mark Corwin died after directing only two weeks of episodes, so ''Jeopardy!'' director Kevin [=McCarthy=] handled that season's road shows taped in Las Vegas, while associate director Bob Cisneros and technical director Robert Ennis filled in until the former was promoted to full-time director. Ennis also filled in again briefly in 2014 while Cisneros was having neck surgery, and ultimately became promoted himself later in 2015.

* ''Series/HaveIGotNewsForYou'' started out with Angus Deayton who, [[RoleEndingMisdemeanor after damaging news stories about himself]], left the show after the second episode of Series 24. They started replacing him with guest hosts, which was deemed so popular that it became a regular element of the show.

* Similarly, ''Series/NeverMindTheBuzzcocks'' used guest hosts for Series 18 (after Mark Lamarr left the show) until Simon Amstell took over the helm at the start of Series 19. From there Bill Bailey, one of the team captains, left the show with guest team captains filling the gap until finding a permanent one with [[TheMightyBoosh Noel Fielding]]. This stable period ended once Amstell left the show following Series 22, leaving the programme with guest hosts once more.

Rod's declining health between 2001 and 2003 also led to several fill-ins by Burton Richardson (who previously did the 1994 syndicated version) and Randy West, plus one week by Paul Boland.

* Creator/AlexTrebek guest-hosted a week of ''Series/WheelOfFortune'' on daytime in 1980 and another episode in 1985, filling in for Chuck Woolery on the former and Pat Sajak on the latter.
** On AprilFoolsDay 1997, Trebek hosted ''Wheel'' with Pat and LovelyAssistant Vanna White playing for charity and Pat's wife, Lesly, in Vanna's usual role and ''Jeopardy!'' announcer Johnny Gilbert co-announcing with Charlie O'Donnell.
