Somewhat Obscure TV Fun Time! (Now With Answers!)

Can you name this late 70's New York City game show host, the show he hosted, AND his famous comic actress/musician daughter?



As a hint, here's a bumper card for his show when it went to commercial, with the show's name blurred out:


First commenter with the correct answers gets to pick my next posting topic! (Winner must choose from this list: stuff in an old TV Guide, stuff in an old newspaper, or something having to do with the seventies.)

3/19 update: Naturally, it was Google-savvy Mike (Lantern Fishworks) who hit the trifecta with the answers "Larry Kenney," "Bowling For Dollars," and Reno 911!'s "Kerri Kenney-Silver." Here's the unobscured pic, and a couple more...



Jackpot indeed, Fishworker! Not that you've really won anything, though I did facetiously promise to let you choose my next topic within the boundaries outlined. Feel free to take me up on that, but let's be clear that whatever that number is on the jackpot board, it ain't involved no how.

How about an f-in' hint? Jesus! Give me a network at least! Was it "Juggling In Tuxes?"

Oh, I thought juggling was the clue.

Anyway, the show was "Bowling for Dollars." The host was Larry Kenney. And his daughter, of course, is Kerri Kenney-Silver, originally of "The State" fame (well, I remember it..) and now more popularly, Reno 911.

Her band is Cake Like. Not to be confused with Cake, which is not Cake Like-like. Nor is Cake Like Cake-like.

What do I win?
