The Nite Show with Danny Cashman brought together some well known Mainers and a nationally known former game show host for a parody of The Hollywood Squares called "Maine Pandemic Squares."

Musician, actor and host of the 1980s version of The Hollywood Squares, John Davidson was the emcee of this quirky take on the celebrity game of X's and O's that aired across Maine Saturday night. Maine celebrities including Bill Green, Tim Sample, Governor Mills, Dr. Nirav Shah, and The Q Morning Show were in the Zoom like tic-tac-toe board to answer questions asked by Davidson that Dan and Christie had to guess if they were true or false.

John Davidson actually lives in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire now, after years of being in show biz. He has been a regular guest host of The Tonight Show, had his own talk show, was a co-host of That's Incredible!, and of course Hollywood Squares.

Rob Caldwell visited Davidson's home on News Center Maine's 207 back in 2019 where it was obvious he likes to entertain. He also made an appearance as both a guest and a guest host of The Nite Show.

If you've never seen Davidson's version of The Hollywood Squares, here's an episode from 1987. This show always seemed like a big party to me when I was watching it as a teenager.

For The Nite Show's Pandemic Maine Squares, Davidson was back in the host seat virtually through Zoom, but the game was not without its issues. You'll see Lori, Brittany and me in the upper right square.

Big thanks to The Nite Show with Danny Cashman for inviting us to join in the fun and for allowing me to geek out over sharing a screen with the man I grew up watching.

The Nite Show with Danny Cashman airs Saturday nights at 10:30 on FOX 23, and again at 1 a.m. on CBS 13.
