But one of the losers proved that Charles Van Dore was cheating.It turned out that the show's producers who were pulling the strings,gave the answers to the most popular contestants beforehand".Why? Because if the audience didn't like the person who won the game,they turned the show off.The result of this cheating was a huge scanda12l.Based on his story,a movie under the title "Quiz Show'' is on13 40 years later.

  Charles Van Doren is no longer involved with IV14.But game shows are still here.Though they aren't taken as seriously.In fact, some of them try to be as ridiculous as possible.There are shows that send strangers on vacation trips together,or that try to cause newly-married couples to fight on TV,or that punish losers by humiliating theme entertainment now is t0 see what people will do just to be On TV.People still win money, but the real prize is to be in front of an audience of millions.
