No. Why would that be a goal? What would be gained from that?

And suppose it were a goal of the Merv Griffin production company. How effective would it be to spread their philosophy through one pissant game show?

No. The goal is to provide programming that people will watch so the producers of the program can sell advertising.

@kritiper Yes I agree. I give Merv Griffin too much credit.

@RedDeerGuy1 particularly because he has been dead for 12 years article – he probably isn’t doing much in the way of language training.
