Anybody watching this show on NBC? I can't get enough of it. Ther's no skill involved, only guessing and playing odds, but I love it.

I've seen it; the bald guy is somewhat strange, otherwise I think that the rles are more complex than normal game shows, making it cool. ;-D

Wow, I guess there really are people who enjoy that mindless garbage.

No kidding, talk about getting old fast... I'd have more fun going to the local gas station and watch a guy pick his Powerball numbers.

I'd like to say it's the perfect show for idiot americans, but apparently this show is huge all over the world! So, it's not just us...

The reason it's a success is that there aren't many game shows on right now. This is for the mindless and I'm usually rooting for them to walk away with like nothing.

I dont like the show all that much but I gave it a try.

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

That's exactly what I root for too. Granted I saw about 15 minutes of last night and then another 15 minutes of tonight, so "I can't get enough" may have been mis-leading, but all I hope for is that the case holds $0.01 after they've turned down $250,000.

What can I say? Human suffering does it for me. :-b

Crap or smelly crap. That's what they need to call that show.

It's an actuarial game, so I find it mildly amusing. It's all probabilities and expected values. I was telling my wife the other night what the "banker" was going to offer each time, and I was within a G every time... And yes, it gets old fast. Too bad there isn't any baseball on!
