Creepy Game Show of My Youth

'Just Like Mom' was a crappy Canadian game show that ran in the first half of the 1980's hosted be Fergie Olver - a horrible sportscaster known for his annoying catch phrase "How 'bout those Toronto Blue Jays!" who co-hosted the show with his wife, who was forced to sit back and smile while he creeped on the guests. This above montage does an excellent job of illustrating what a truly creepy man Olver was.

It was recently announced that the show will be making a comeback - sans the dead Olver for obvious reasons - under the new title "Just Like Mom... and Dad!" I suspect the re-jigged version will remove the creepy desperate to kiss little girls angle the 80's incarnation boasted.
