This was Bill's return to the Goodson-Todman fold after spending the 70s hosting Bob Stewart games. (Bill had kept his ties with Goodson-Todman as a panelist on To Tell The Truth.) Even with a run of only eighteen months, this was one of the more successful series of his later career, and certainly one of the better games. Even today, it remains one of the more popular.
In 1982, Bill received an Emmy nomination for hosting Blockbusters. He also had Emmy nominations for Three on a Match and Hot Potato.
