 Since its debut on Channel 6, "Wheel of Fortune" has achieved record breaking success, unparalleled in television history.

 "Wheel of Fortune" has become an international sensation with universal appeal and a household name around the globe. Currently attracting more than 100 million weekly viewers worldwide, the game show now airs in 21 foreign territories.

 Commenting on Wheel's success, creator and executive producer Merv Griffin stated, "I am extremely proud of 'Wheel of Fortune's' success and popularity both here and abroad. I believe Wheel's good fortune is based on the fact that the entire family can watch and play together. That's what makes 'Wheel of Fortune' America's game!"
 In celebration of its 10th anniversary, this fall Wheel returns with a fantastic new set which includes new scenic pieces, music and graphics. This, coupled with an exciting calendar of activities, will make this year another hallmark season for America's game.
 One thing that won't change will be the popular hosts. Pat Sajak and Vanna White have also become household names and will return for their 10th season hosting America's No. 1 syndicated game show.
