A well-known game show comes up on TV. They have acquired some expensive coats; A winner chosen at random will receive five coats, leaving one which will go to charity.

The host reads out his script. He says: "And here are the prizes! Exquisite coats! We are giving away ___. ____ ___ ____ __ ___ lucky winner, and the other one will go to charity."

Can you work out the name of the show? (also, what words fill the blanks?)

EDIT! Maybe a stupid guess, but could it be...

Countdown? The missing words would be something like "Six. five for (four) free (three) to (two) one", which sounds like a countdown from 6.

    $\begingroup$ I'm also amazed at how quickly you got it, both the missing words and the name of the show. $\endgroup$ – matt_rule Nov 14 '18 at 22:45
