Brains and Brawn (game show)

    (NBC Primetime, 1958)

    [This was a short-lived game show which had an ambitious
     format: two contestants -- one playing the "brawn" portion
     and a celebrity contestant playing the "brain" portion
     comprised a team which competed with another team to win
     prizes. 
     
     As if that wasn't complicated enough, there were also
     two hosts!! Fred Davis hosted the "Brain" portion, and
     Jack Lescoulie hosted the "Brawn" portion.
     
     Perhaps its complexity was part of the reason this series 
     went away fast after just three months]
