HQ Trivia isn't the only way game shows are getting a modern twist. TV's longest-running stunt show, "Beat the Clock," is returning on Universal Kids. Host Paul Costabile joins Cheddar to discuss why the show still resonates today.

The show premiered in 1950 and has helped shape the face of the modern game show. Costabile explains the rules and what's at stake for the child and adult contestants. The host tells us how the show is keeping some of the original games from the 1950's in the reboot.

Costabile just welcomed a child with singer Christina Perri. He gives an update on how the first month of fatherhood is going. Plus, we find out if he's gotten any better at beating the clock since becoming a dad.
