Judge For Yourself was a judgment talent game show.

Game formatEdit

Two different formats were played during its very short-lived run.

Original FormatEdit

In the original format, three professional acts (by singers, musicians, dancers, comedians) performed and were rated 1-2-3 by two panel of judges. One set of judges was composed of three celebrities. and the other set of three members of the studio audience. An audience-judge won $1,000 if his or her ratings matched that of any of the celebrities.

New FormatEdit

The format was changed on January 5, 1954. Three contestants now listened to songs that were performed by the show's regulars. The players tried to determined the one song that the audience liked best and any player who guessed correctly won part of the $1,000 jackpot.
