I am looking for a list (10-20) game shows that are currently
recruiting contestants and details on how to apply.  Prefer
trivia-type shows.  Also if you happen across on-line contests that
pay cash prizes I will accept those too.

Hello nkamom,

Here are 10 game shows currently recruiting contestants:

Family Feud


The Price is Right

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire

Wheel of Fortune

Chain Reaction

1 vs 100

Deal or No Deal


Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!

[Note: It does not appear that Lingo, a GSN show, is currently recruiting.]

If a game show in which you're interested is missing from this list,
I'd be happy to clarify my answer with that information.
