Baffle is an NBC game show of identifying phrases. It was a revival of the 1965 show P.D.Q. It was also the show that took the time slot of Concentration, which ended a 14-year/8 month run on NBC that past Friday.
Two teams, each of a celebrity and a civilian, participated. One member of each team is in a soundproof booth. As the opponent's booth is shut off, the other's partner is shown a phrase and puts up three letters on a rack. The object was for the player in the booth to identify the phrase. A signal told the partner to add a letter. Once the phrase is identified, the opposing team plays the same phrase. Scoring is based on the amount of time used to guess the phrase with the quickest time tallying a point. The top scoring team after four rounds is the winner.
The winning team vied to identify words from three-letter clues for the chance to win a new car.
Baffle began using celebrity teams on September 29, 1973.
