[quote name=\'Jay Temple\' post=\'253462\' date=\'Dec 27 2010, 01:09 PM\']My DVR cut off a little early. Did the game that started on 12/23 straddle, as it appeared?[/quote]Yes. It starts today at 1 vs. 30, $5,000, Trust still in tact. BuzzerBlog's schedules show the next two weeks will still have the rest of the new episodes.

My wife and I were at a friend's house on Christmas Eve and I saw the GSN version for the first time.  To be honest, I really didn't like the mob "wall".  The constant out of focus shots were a distraction.

The questions are pretty good and I like to play along so I can forgive the program's faults.

chad1m: I don't know if you remember, but I'll ask anyway. A contestant took the money rather than attempt the question, "Which T.V. show currently in production does not have a title ending with a punctuation mark?" What were the choices? I'm assuming it was one of their two-stage questions.

A really diabolical choice would be "the one starring Hugh Laurie." If you think that House is the full title, you'll choose that and be wrong. (It's House, M.D.)

Wasn't the question "What current game show does not have a title ending with a punctuation mark?"  One of the answers had to be
"The One hosted by Alex Trebek"

I do, because I liked this question. :) It would have been: \"The title of which current game show doesn\'t end with a punctuation mark?\"

A: The one hosted by Meredith Vieira
B: The one hosted by Alex Trebek
C: The one hosted by Jeff Foxworthy

The answer, I believe, would be A. (Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Jeopardy! and Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader? are how each official website titles their program.)

I love 1 vs 100 questions, because I would have gotten this one wrong because I was thinking C, but it's A.  Did A ever have a question  mark at the end?  I thought it did in Regis's time with the program.

Hmm, let's see.  A and C's titles are questions, so logically they would end with a question mark.  B is the answer, because it ends with an exclamation point, not a mark. Tricky one, for sure!

[quote name=\'Jay Temple\' post=\'252700\' date=\'Dec 18 2010, 12:31 PM\']As much as I hate it when they cut to commercial before revealing the correct answer (doubly so if I knew the answer as soon as I saw the question), there's a somewhat narrow scenario that bugs me even more:
1. Contestant Polls the Mob.
2. chooses the answer they asked about
3. said answer is correct
4. (here's the kicker) Carrie asks how many people missed it.
Hello! You just told us how many people got it right. That means we know how many people got it wrong! (More to the point, we know whether the contestant crossed a threshhold for more money.)[/quote]

That was a problem with the Australian edition, as well.

Did anyone see the eps the week of January 3rd where the top prize was bumped to $100K? I didn't see any discussion of this in Show Summaries.
