The show paid tribute to Lifetime Achievement Award winners Monty Hall and the late Bob Stewart.
Now 91, Hall hosted the popular "Let's Make a Deal" game show starting in the 1960s.
"When we started the show, I just hoped for 13 weeks and we passed 50 years," Hall said on the red carpet about the show that still airs today.
Stewart, who died last year, created such game shows as "The Price is Right," ''To Tell the Truth," ''Password" and "The $10,000 Pyramid."
Jess Walton of "The Young and the Restless" joined Bernsen for the in memoriam segment. He dropped the expletives that went out over the air when talking about his late mother.
