Double Up (Series) (1974)

Double Up, a summer replacement for the panel quiz show, This Is The Law, had as its most obvious source the 1950s program, You Bet Your Life, with Groucho Marx. On that obviously chintzy game show (in contrast to The $64,000 Question, Groucho asked questions that were worth $50 or so), the simple quiz ran second to the chat with the contestants, where Groucho always remained at least one step ahead of his guests. Double Up also had a simple question-and-answer type of quiz (the show's title referred to the fact that, of the three competing pairs of contestants on each show, one would return at the conclusion for the chance to double their money).
