definitely not. my guess is either What's My Line? 1950-1967 or To Tell The Truth 1956-.

The 64,000 question was from the fifties 1955-1958 and it was still not the first and some like that one were called quiz shows and not Game Shows

I've got a Secret 1952 was one of the first that lasted along with What's my Line 1950.

I looked some up in Wikipedia for original series dates and included them after the show's name
