Anyone remember a confrontational talk show from the mid 60s that was hosted by Joe Pyne? The chain smoking Pyne was notorious for insulting guests. He also hosted a short-lived game show in 1966 titled Showdown, which was replaced by a show that became a much bigger success, Hollywood Squares.

Yeah, I remember him! He was on TV when I was first married (circa 1968) I was so young then(18) that I paid little attention.;)

Yeah, I remember him too, but I don't remember the game show, just the talk show.

Joe Pyne was way before Jerry Springer. I saw these clips from the documentry on A&E a couple of years ago.
