Beat the Odds is an American game show created by Bill Derman for Bing Crosby Productions. It first aired as a local production on KTLA in Los Angeles, California in 1961 with Mike Stokey as host and Stan Chambers as announcer. Dennis James succeeded Stokey as host in 1962, and the last episode aired in August 1963. The format was revived for syndication, debuting nationally on December 16, 1968 with Johnny Gilbert as host and Bill Baldwin as announcer. This version of the show lasted until September 1969. In the show, contestants competed to form words after being given the first letter, last letter, and number of overall letters. Each correct word won 10 points, with 100 points winning the game. Bill Carruthers revived the format in 1975, filming a pilot with Chuck Henry as host. This pilot did not sell.
