Jay Leno is set to host a reboot of the game show “You Bet Your Life”.
The comedian will revive the series with Fox television stations starting in the fall of 2021.
The original quiz show ran on television from 1950–61, but it debuted on radio in ’47, and the reboot preserved interviews and banquets with contestants, which became very well known for the original.
