premiered on HBO in April 2011 and became the most watched show in the cable network's history.
The main title theme was written by Emmy-nominated composer Ramin Djawadi.
Blockbusters was revived on NBC from January 5 to May 1, 1987, but featured only two contestants competing.
Bill Cullen hosted the 1980–82 version, with Bob Hilton as announcer.
Three of the five theme answers are quite fresh and lovely (1, 2, 5), and the others are just fine (3, 4).

While Williams recorded the song that is now used in the NBC Olympics broadcasts, the part most people recognize in the very beginning is actually the "Star Wars" composer's arrangement of "Bugler’s Dream," part of a 1958 musical suite by Frenchman Leo Arnaud, a composer who much like Williams worked in Hollywood, as the Chicago Tribune points out.

“Doleen” enjoys collecting Yugio cards, playing linebacker for the Sirens and building her upper body strength.
The question tonight folks…will Doleen pick bachelor #1, (Cole as the Cub Scout will rise and bow before the audience), bachelor #2 (Dustin as the businessman adjusts his glasses, straightens his tie and throws his shoulders back trying to look dignified), or bachelor #3 (Daniel acts too cool, brushes his hair back and gives the “hang loose” sign). Now Doleen ask your questions to our eligible bachelors. My first question to all of you is if I were stranded on a desert island, how would you save me? Doleen, if you were stranded on a desert island I would charter a plane to come pick you up- that is if I’m not in a meeting.
