What's My Line? is a panel game show that originally ran in the United States on the CBS Television Network from 1950 to 1967, with a dozen international versions and subsequent U.S. revivals.

It is the longest-running U.S. primetime network television game-show. Moderated by John Charles Daly and with regular panelists Dorothy Kilgallen, Arlene Francis, and Bennett Cerf, What's My Line? won three Emmy Awards for "Best Quiz or Audience Participation Show" in 1952, 1953, and 1958 and the Golden Globe for Best TV Show in 1962.
