YMMV: The Name's The Same

  • Funny Moments: The "panel innocently asking questions" format, combined with contestants like "A. Harem" (August 4, 1953), typically meant Hilarity Ensues. Game Show Moments Gone Bananas showed clips of "A. Mattress" (October 1, 1952) and "A. Maid" (March 17, 1953), which went pretty much in the same direction.
  • Moment Of Awesome: Any contestant who stumped the (especially four-member) panel through the panel's running out of questions. Overlapped with Funny Moments on occasion, when the panel went into desperation mode and started asking off-the-wall questions when their "stock" began getting low.
    • Inversely, panelists who got the right answer through said off-the-wall questions.
  • Replacement Scrappy: The hosts in Season 4, or at least Clifton Fadiman as he had to follow Lewis, James, and the comedic radio duo.
  • Seasonal Rot: Season 4.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: "Secret Wish", the panel expansion, and "Celebrity Relatives" could all qualify.
