One of the first competitive {{reality show}}s, running long before reality television was considered a genre. It considered itself a TalentShow with prizes. It would run in UsefulNotes/{{syndication}} from 1983 to 1995. Alfred Masini created the program in the wake of his success with the 1981 debut of another show of his, ''Series/EntertainmentTonight''.

''Star Search'' was, for the most part, only slightly better at producing big stars as ''Series/AmericasNextTopModel'' is at producing top models. This did not affect the show's popularity in the slightest.

''Star Search'' was the blueprint for [[FollowTheLeader a large number of other shows.]] Eventually, the idea would cross the Atlantic; and when it crossed back, havoc broke loose. Yes, without ''Star Search'', ''AmericanIdol'' and ''Series/AmericasGotTalent'' [[SpiritualSuccessor might not exist]]. ''Star Search'' itself was revived in 2003 with Arsenio Hall as its host, with a wild deviation from the original (and one much closer to ''AmericanIdol'', with a fan vote contributing to scores). A 12-year-old [[RetroactiveRecognition David Archuleta]] appeared in the show's second series.
