And After This…

…There was no further need for game shows.

Again, I find it interesting to think of this in the context of the vanishing pop cultural middlebrow. On the one hand, the show includes a publisher who is sufficiently recognizable to appear as a game show panelist. On the other hand, I’m not sure I can think of a present-day artist who would be both recognizable to a mass audience and appropriate to a celebrity panel like his questioners. (No one expected the Spaniard’s inquisition.)
