Wheel Of Fortune (Australian Game Show)
Wheel of Fortune is an Australian television game show produced by Grundy Television. The programme aired on the Seven Network from 1981 to 2004 and November 2005 to July 2006, and is mostly based on the same general format as the original U.S. version of the programme. After Wheel of Fortune ended, the format was revived by the Nine Network in 2008 as Million Dollar Wheel of Fortune, until it was canceled in June 2008 due to low ratings following arguments from long-time host John Burgess concerning why he didn't like the show.
An earlier unrelated show also titled Wheel of Fortune had been broadcast on the Nine Network. That version had been developed by Reg Grundy as a radio game show before it transferred to television in 1959.
