The Gong Show was certainly cool for its time. The dry humor of Letterman(at his best), was proceeded by Barris on the Gong Show(albeit extra dry).

I remember channel 2 in BR(WBRZ) running the $1.98 Beauty Contest at 6:30 right after the news. Rip Taylor was the host and the winner would be given $1.98 in change from his belt. The fact that this show was created and hit the air at all was proof that Barris was on a major roll at that time. It also proved that he was on the edge. The "roll" would soon end, WBRZ(like many who aired the show) yanked it after three weeks.
