70 years ago today, on August 10, 1948, the television show Candid Camera debuted on ABC. It was the visual embodiment of the Candid Microphone radio show which proceeded the program. Candid Camera would become a worldwide hit and was the precursor to such shows as America’s Funniest Home Videos, Jackass, Tosh.0, Boiling Points and a variety of other prank based reality programming. Unsuspecting “victims” were placed in humorous situations only to be told that they were on “Candid Camera”.

Still waiting for Sarah Sanders to come out for her daily briefing and say, “America, You’re On Candid Camera!”
