** ''Password Plus'' was nearly cancelled in 1980 to make room for a morning talk show hosted by Creator/DavidLetterman. Would we have seen ''Super Password'' if it was? Keep in mind, ''Plus'' was the only incarnation of ''Password'' to win an Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show (it won in 1982, the same year its run ended).
