This kinda reminds me of the time Press Your Luck and Chain Reaction were revived as cable originals in 2002 and 1986 respectively, due to the popularity of the respective original versions that were playing in reruns.
 
Unfortunately, almost every single original, since Bob Boden left, I found to be very disappointing.

Appearing in "The Mob" tonight in seat number 2 1/2 is former game show host and <Sarcasm> all around good guy </Sarcasm> Rossi Morriale.

Now, normally if you lose to the mob, you go home with nothing, but Rossi has been generous enough to supply you with "lots of love" should he collect your winnings tonight.

Sounds like fun...1 vs. 100 was probably the only Endemol USA show I actually enjoyed. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I'm toying with the idea of making a trip to LA to try out.

If GSN is doing it, the top prize will NOT be $1 million. Maybe $100K. I will watch it though. If they get Bob and the original writers back, all the better.

Did anyone ever WIN the million on the original show? It doesn't matter what top prize you advertise, if the average actual payout is within your budget.

(Budgetarily, anyhow. We've gone over the turn-off factor of advertising a top prize that is virtually impossible to win.)

And the point that the money gets paid out regardless, either to the One or the Mob, is a valid one, too. If someone runs up even 250K, that's coming out of the budget one way or the other.

I also think GSN's jackpot for the show will be 100 grand.

I was just never big on The One getting to walk away with ALL of their winnings, and the Mob basically getting nothing for scaring the contestant off. I could see them having to split their bank with the Mob should they want to cop out- isn't that the way the British version did it?

I thought Britain did it like everywhere else <> US/AUS, that you had to wipe out the Mob to win any money.

I'm thinking $250,000 might work for a top prize- not a complete budget-buster, but still a decent amount. It depends on what kind of money tree they use:

If they go with the first season ladder (which I prefer):

Q1-3- $250 per KO
Q4-5- $500 per KO
Q6- $750 per KO
Q7- $1,000 per KO
Q8- $1,250 per KO
Q9- $1,500 per KO
Q10-$1,750 per KO
Q11-$2,000 per KO
Q12-$2,250 per KO
Q13+-$2,500 per KO

(using this tree, if you say knocked out 10 players per question for the first 9 questions, then the total after 90 KO's would be $62,500- and that's a high number since a lot more of the Mob would be knocked out in the first few questions. The average amounts would probably be in the $25K-$30K range).


If they go with the 2nd season ladder:

10 out-$1,000
20 out-$2,500
30 out-$5,000
40 out-$10,000
50 out-$20,000
60 out-$30,000
70 out-$40,000
80 out-$50,000
90 out-$100,000
100 out-$250,000


I'm thinking going with the first season money tree is cheaper for them in the long run...

They did in the UK (but if the One knocked out the 100 on an question they didn't use a dodge on, they could bail with the money accumulated or risk it on the last answer being right to win a 50,000 bonus).  A lot of the other European versions followed the US rules as well.

I can't see GSN offering $250K, even for a weekly show. I'm guessing $50 or 100K, with a shorter tree and lower amounts...$100 for the first three questions, $250 for questions four and five, $500, for six and seven, then $1,000 from there on out.

Honestly, I'd just do $250 or 500 for the first 50 knocked out, then double for each of the remaining 50. But, I guess that could get a little pedestrian after awhile.

And, well, none of them lasted very long, whereas the versions that followed the Dutch ruleset have been much more successful. many still going. I have a feeling a GSN version would be more Dutch, but I also think that having been spoiled by the big money network version it won't go down too well.

An interesting dilemma indeed.
