Hosts and panelists

The show was hosted by veteran radio and television newsman John Daly, whose full birth name was John Charles Patrick Croghan Daly. Panelist Bennett Cerf referred to him as John Charles Daly, his professional name at the start of his CBS News career in Washington. (As writer Joe Persico noted in his 1988 biography of Edward R. Murrow, Daly shortened it at the request of CBS Vice President Ed Klauber, but the JCD name has lingered among some listeners and viewers.)

Hoffman, psychiatrist Dr. Richard Hoffmann, columnist Dorothy Kilgallen and poet Louis Untermeyer. In later weeks, actress Arlene Francis replaced Governor Hoffman, comedy writer Hal Block replaced Dr. Hoffmann and Random House publisher Bennett Cerf replaced Untermeyer. Cerf, Kilgallen and Francis would remain regular panelists through most of the show's run. Humorist Steve Allen joined the panel when Block left the show in 1953.

Game play

Standard rounds

Each episode of What's My Line? featured two standard contestant rounds, sometimes more if time permitted, and one mystery guest round. A round was essentially a guessing game in which the panel tried to identify the occupation of a contestant. The contestant would enter and his/her occupation flashed on monitors for the studio audience and television viewers to see. One panelist would begin by asking the contestant a yes-or-no question about his/her occupation. If the panelist received a "yes" answer, s/he could pose another question. If the panelist received a "no," the privilege of questioning passed to the next panelist. Questioning continued in rotation until the occupation was deduced or until the panel received its tenth "no" answer. At the end of the game the contestant won $5 for every "no" answer, thus $50 for stumping the panel. A guessing game is a game in which the object is to guess some kind of information, such as a word, a phrase, a title, or the location of an object. ...


Panelists had the option of passing instead of asking a question. The panel could also request a group conference in which the four members had from ten to thirty seconds to openly discuss ideas about the occupation or possible lines of questioning. John Daly set the conference time limit each time one was requested. Panels quickly adopted some basic binary search strategies and used initial questions to determine whether the contestant was salaried or self-employed, whether s/he dealt in a product or service, and whether the contestant's organization was profit-making or non-profit. In later seasons, the answers to one or more of these points of inquiry were provided before questioning began. Because only "no" answers were counted, panelists would often phrase their questions so that a "yes" answer would be more probable: "Is it something other than hair?" In computer science, binary search is a search algorithm for searching a set of sorted data for a particular value. ...


The host acted as a moderator, cueing the panelists on their turns and flipping over cards that represented the contestant's score. The host also assisted contestants with questions and preventing them from giving misleading answers.


Mystery guest rounds

Celebrity "mystery guests" appeared as challengers on What's My Line? in addition to the standard contestants. In a mystery guest round the panelists were blindfolded and asked questions in order to identify the famous person. Questioning was conducted in the same way as standard rounds except that panelists could only ask one question at a time before passing control to the next panelist. Mystery guests would try to conceal their identities by disguising their voices, much to the amusement of the studio audience. A celebrity is a person who is widely recognized in a society. ... A blindfold is a strip of cloth used to cover the eyes, rendering the user effectively (but temporarily) blind. ...


Style of the show

What's My Line? is remembered as a celebration of urbanity and good manners in television. The host and male panelists always wore black tie while female panelists donned formal gowns and gloves. At the beginning of a round, John Daly would invite the next contestant to "enter and sign in, please." The contestant would write his/her name on a small slate attached to the wall, and Daly would introduce the contestant to the panel – the male panelists standing to shake hands and the female panelists remaining seated, naturally. If the contestant was female, Daly asked if she should be addressed as "Miss" or "Mrs." Young, attractive female contestants usually elicited whistles from the studio audience. Roger Moore as James Bond in his trademark dinner jacket. ...


During the game the polite, well-spoken Daly would generally address the panelists as "Mr. Cerf" or "Miss Francis." Despite his responsibility to keep things moving, Daly was not above trading bon mots with the panelists during the game. Occasionally a panelist would pose a problematic question leading to an equivocal answer. Daly would step in to clarify matters, but his delightful penchant for long-winded overanalysis tended to leave the panelist more confused than before.


While ostensibly a game show, What's My Line? was really more an opportunity to interview celebrities and people with interesting occupations. The guessing game had an air of formality and adherence to rules, but Daly was clearly on the contestants' side and wanted them to win as much money as possible. If the occupation was guessed early, Daly would often "flip the cards" and give the contestant the full $50 anyway. Mystery guests were paid $500 as an appearance fee, whether they won or lost the game. This was in addition to the maximum $50 game winnings, which they sometimes donated to charity. Guest panelists were paid $750 as an appearance fee. The regular panelists were under contract and were paid "much more" stated executive producer Gil Fates in his 1978 What's My Line? book.


Alternate versions

A weekly American CBS radio version of What's My Line? was produced from May 1952 until July 1953.

An American syndicated five-day-a-week version of What's My Line? ran from 1968 to 1975, with gameplay largely identical to the classic CBS version. Wally Bruner was the original host, and was succeeded by Larry Blyden in 1972. Arlene Francis and comedian Soupy Sales were the regular panelists; Bennett Cerf continued to make frequent appearances until his death in 1971. Other panelists included Alan Alda, Bert Convy, Elaine Joyce, Ruta Lee, Meredith MacRae, Gene Rayburn, Gene Shalit and Dana Valery. Contestants now frequently demonstrated their skill or product during their segment (often with the help of the panelists, often with hilarious results). Also, a new "Who's Who" feature was played on occassion; four audience members stood on stage, and it was the panelists' job to match their careers with the contestants. The audience member team split $25 for each celebrity that failed to correctly match their careers, with $100 possible.

Show trivia

  • The show popularized the phrase "Is it bigger than a breadbox?" A slight variation of this question was first posed by Steve Allen on January 18, 1953, during his 1953 to 1954 tenure as a regular panelist. Over several subsequent episodes, he refined his famous breadbox question. Soon, other panelists were asking this question as well, and continued to do so until the end of the series. It became such a running gag that over the years, the producers booked contestants who made breadboxes and designed breadboxes. One humorous moment came in 1963 when a contestant from England was asked the famous question. He seriously replied, "Oh, I'm English. What's a breadbox?"
  • The final mystery guest in the original version was John Daly himself. Daly alternated between a falsetto "guest" voice and his standard moderator voice, fooling the panel for a significant number of questions. The gimmick had been devised years earlier as a backup plan in case the scheduled mystery guest didn't show up. That event never occurred, despite a few close calls, so Daly decided to use the trick for the final episode.
