1952: 'I've Got a Secret' Premieres
June 19, 2017  | By David Bianculli
 
One secret about the long-running game show I've Got a Secret — which debuted today in 1952 — is that it was co-created by Allan Sherman of "Hello, Muddah" fame.

Another is that this lightest of formats was staffed by one of the sharpest and funniest of celebrity panels, including lengthy stints by Bill Cullen and Steve Allen (both of whom ended up hosting), Faye Emerson, Jayne Meadows, Henry Morgan, Bess Myerson, and Betsy Palmer.

Garry Moore hosted for the first dozen years, then quit this series and The Garry Moore Show at the same time — Moore or less.
