Status: Partially Lost

I've Got A Secret was an American panel show created by Mark Goodson and Bill Todman that aired on CBS from June 19th, 1952, to April 3rd, 1967. The show's format is similar to another Goodson-Todman panel show "What's My Line?". A guest (sometimes a celebrity) tells the host a secret (which is a secret) and a panel of four celebrities asked the guest what the secret is and they can only reply yes or no, the game ends when the celebrity gets the secret or time runs out. The show was hosted by actor Gary Moore (who would later host To Tell The Truth) until 1964 when he left and was replaced with comedian and former Tonight Show host Steve Allen until the show's 1967 end. The show would get revival several times since then with the most recent one in 2006, however, its 1972 revival (which was hosted by Allen) is the show's most memorable revival.

The revival ran for only 39 episodes from September 11th, 1972, to September 9th, 1973, in Syndication and despite being the second shortest-lived version of the show, it's been the most reran version besides the original with Game Show Network airing episodes every holiday season since they discontinued rerunning the show regularly in 2009. Because of these constant reruns, episodes have become very easy to find online. However, despite the show existing in its entirety, a small number of the version's episodes have not resurfaced.

Availability[edit | edit source]

Given the show's constant presence in cable reruns, a large majority of the show's limit run can be found online. However, some episodes of the show's run have not reappeared despite all the show's masters being intact during a time were erasing older shows for new shows was common practice at the time. In recent years, episodes that went undocumented began to emerge through very rare reruns. It is possible that the other lost episodes aired on Game Show Network in the past and went under the radar but this remains to be seen.
