One of the greatest TV hosts of all time, Merv Griffin's show ran from 1962 to 1986 and featured over 25,000 guest appearances. Everyone from US presidents, civil rights leaders, and dignitaries, to a who's who of A-list stars from the world of sports, TV, and film all sat down with Griffin to chew the fat. Long unavailable to revisit in any form, 40 classic episodes from The Merv Griffin Show are now available to watch over and over again thanks to the genius folks at MPI Home Video and Reelin' In The Years Productions.

The Merv Griffin Show: 1962-1986 not only features all those episodes, but it also comes packed with over seven hours of bonus material featuring musical performances, interviews, and more. It is, without a doubt, one of the must-have DVD sets of the year and a treasure trove of nostalgic goodness for anyone interested in American popular culture and history.

T-Lounge is excited to premiere this exclusive bonus features clip from The Merv Griffin Show: 1962-1986 DVD box set (in stores now). The clip features musical genius 'Weird Al' Yankovic performing his song "I Lost on Jeopardy" during a 1984 performance on the legendary talk show. His signature curly hair is in full effect as he pounds the keys and sings the song for an appreciating audience before having a brief chat with Griffin. For fans of the singer, this is solid gold.
