CELEBRITY BOWLING

CELEBRITY BOWLING
Available at

We’re not sure you could get celebrities to wear triple-tone bowling shoes nowadays, but during the disco-crazed ’70s, no problem!
Celebrity Bowling, hosted by Jed Allan (CSI: Miami, original Beverly Hills 90210) was produced in Los Angeles, California at KTTV Channel 5. The popular series ran for eight years (January 16, 1971 to September 1978). Each week two-person teams competed on regulation size bowling lanes that were actually installed in-studio.
The rules of the game were known as “best ball”—each team members would take a shot on their own lane. If neither hit a strike, then whomever rolled the worse shot would try to pick up a spare on their partner’s lane. Winning teams garnered prizes (better accumulated score equaled better bounty) for audience members both present and sitting at home. Fabulous gifts included appliances and even new automobiles. Hilarity usually came in two flavors: celebs that took their game waaaay too seriously; and lighthearted joking aimed at your partner or opponent. And, of course, some people had a better sense of humor than others.
This long-running series was an offshoot of The Celebrity Bowling Classic, a 90-minute TV special produced in 1969 for the Metromedia-owned stations, benefitting the Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. Foundation.
Joe Siegman created Celebrity Bowling, and, along with Don Gregory, produced 89 episodes for their company, 7-10 Productions.
