After auditions tonight, I came across a new game show that in a game night format would probably have me banned from playing. “The Money List” seems to be a update on the classic show 21 (scandals galore) in which two teams compete. The teams are made up of two complete strangers who are placed into sound proof rooms. The object of the game is to outbid the other team to complete the given list. For instance, the category is: “Scrabble Tiles That Are Worth More Than 1 Point.”
To begin, one team bids on the number they can correctly guess. Then, the other team’s booth is unlocked and they either bid higher or allow the other team to fill in the list. The first team to win two rounds is the winner and goes on for a chance to win $50,000!!! by completing yet another list.
Other lists: “Number One Beatles’ Singles,” “U.S. Presidents Prior to 1900 (first and last names had to be given),” “Elvis Presley Songs That Were On Billboard’s Top 40 (unfortunately, the very first answer given (“That’s Alright, Mama”) was wrong because Billboard was not around when the song was recorded),” and “The 10o Most Populous Cities (a team actually go the bidding up to 30 but misspoke NEW Delhi, Delhi itself would have been correct).”
gsn.com has an online version of the game that I think I may peruse (perused and wish I had not).
Oh, boy, oh BOY, OH BOY… I’ve reached 500 !!!! YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Any game where the players are not mostly on equal footing will be banished 😉
I haven’t watched a game show in quite a while now. Once “5th Grader” had a million dollar winner last year I quit watching, and before that I really only caught an episode here and there of other shows. Too bad I know, as game shows can really be fun to watch.
