This 1950s game show profited from the poverty of a new woman every day

Wow, I had almost forgotten about this show. I remember watching it once or maybe twice. I mainly remember the Mad Magazine parody which was pretty damning. Still, The New York Times had and still has its Neediest Cases stories and fundraisers, but that is more sob sister journalism with a reporter telling the story, not some poor schnook having to beg like a dog.
